Liverpool Law School students contribute to published report on global AI standards

Published on

In December 2023, a team of seven University of Liverpool Law School students completed a 12-week online research programme examining global trends in the regulation of artificial intelligence, and findings from their research have now been published.

Julia Andrusiak, Olivia Corcoran, Alexa Hanson, Mollie Howard, Helen Robinson, Harri Williams and Yichen Zhang enrolled as research group members with the Washington DC based Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Digital Policy (CAIDP). CAIDP is a civil society organisation whose goal is to shape national and international AI regulation and policy to minimise harm and to promote democratic values. 

As part of a broader project examining the regulation and governance of artificial intelligence in 80 countries, the students contributed to the development of country reports examining Nigeria, Puerto Rico, Argentina, Luxembourg, Uruguay, Sweden and Slovenia. The output from their research has now been published in CAIDP’s Artificial Intelligence and Democratic Values Report (2023).

The comprehensive training that student undertook during the project allowed them to engage with leading researchers, policy analysts and members of industry from across the globe

Reflecting on the experience, Liverpool Law School student Julia Andrusiak said: “Being acknowledged as a contributor to this report fills me with pride. My network has expanded greatly, and the pool of opportunities has widened to ones I never knew existed. Immersing myself in CAIDP by attending conferences during my time there and being able to partake in different meetings and conferences after my time definitely broadened my horizons. Working with amazing people who have shared their insights equipped me with confidence and resilience to succeed in the future.”

Mr Jeremy Marshall (Lecturer, Law) and Dr Sujith Subramanian (Senior Lecturer, Law) plan to use this experience to develop strategies for the sustainable incorporation of further COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) activities within the University of Liverpool Law curriculum.
