Carlos Ignacio is an artificial intelligence (AI) policy researcher at the Future of Life Institute. His work on AI governance focuses on two areas. First, the impact of this technology’s methods and application on hard law. In this regard, he published a systematic review documenting regulatory gaps generated by AI in the United States. Second, he examines AI’s management through the design of effective and credible soft law programs. His most recent contribution in this area is the publication of a global database of AI soft law programs. It compiles and analyzes trends from over 600 efforts to govern AI created by governments, non-profits, and the private sector.
