The Center for AI and Digital Policy is a rapidly evolving organization. Our first AI policy clinic had a handful of participants. For our upcoming clinic, there were over 600 applicants. We set up this page to provide information about structure of CAIDP and the key terms we use for the organization.
Participants at CAIDP typically join one of three groups:
We award three AI Policy certifications:
We award the CAIDP AI Policy Certificate to those who have completed a comprehensive AI Policy program, including research, writing, and policy analysis.
We award the CAIDP AI Policy Certificate Advanced to those who have successfully completed an advanced AI policy program, including presentation, briefing, and team coordination.
We award the CAIDP AI Policy Group Certificate to those who have successfully completed an advanced AI policy program that requires monitoring AI policy developments and providing policy advice to national governments and international organizations
The CAIDP Board of Directors each year designates a small number of individuals as CAIDP Fellows. These individuals have completed the introductory and advanced AI policy courses with distinction, demonstrated exceptional leadership, dedication, and integrity, and worked to advance the mission of CAIDP.
CAIDP gives out the Global AI Policy Leaders award in Academia, Business, Civil Society, and Government. Individuals will be recognized who have made outstanding contributions to the development and implementation of AI policies that advance fundamental rights, democratic values, and the rule of law.
