Cyber and Artificial Intelligence Boot Camp | Congressional Staff Submission

Stanford University’s Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, Hoover Institution, and Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence Institute, present the Stanford Congressional Cyber and Artificial Intelligence Boot Camp. Convened at Stanford University, the boot camp endeavors to give mid- to senior-level Congressional staff a conceptual framework to understand the threat environment of today and how it might evolve so that they are better able to anticipate and manage the converging technology and policy issues of tomorrow.

This intensive training program incorporates a rigorous curriculum with a hacking lab, a simulation, keynote speakers from both industry and government, and a field trip that provides hands-on experience.

Upon being accepted into the boot camp, participants will receive round-trip airfare, ground transportation to and from San Francisco airport to Stanford, meals and lodging. Stanford University complies with all Congressional Ethics Rules. A laptop is required to participate.

Seasoned Congressional staff with portfolios in AI and/or cybersecurity are encouraged to express interest no later than Sunday, July 14th.
