Princeton will establish a technology and democracy program within the University’s Center for Information Technology Policy (CITP), a leading authority on issues related to artificial intelligence, internet privacy and security, big data, cryptocurrencies and the impact of digital technologies on society. The new program, made possible by a gift from an anonymous donor, will include a first-of-its-kind technology policy clinic that will enable technical specialists to provide nonpartisan studies and expertise on emerging technologies to federal, state and local policymakers so that elected officials can make better informed decisions on behalf of the public.
