As part of the Ethics of Digitalization project, a joint initiative of the Global Network of Internet and Society Research Centers (NoC), the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society collaborated with the City of Helsinki’s Education Division and their subcontractor, Saidot, to host an intensive, virtual AI Policy Research Clinic. This three-week educational program invited a dozen graduate students to engage in a real-world project and apply their backgrounds in law, public policy, computer science, education, and other disciplines towards the responsible use of AI, for an application designed for Helsinki schools. The specific application aims to improve personalized learning programs, student well-being, and retention within Helsinki’s vocational education and training programs.
