Project Manager "AI and Foreign Policy" and "EU Cyber-Direct"
Kate Saslow works as project manager for three themes: Artificial Intelligence and Foreign Policy; EU Cyber Resilience; and Machine Learning and Cyber Security. In "Artificial Intelligence and Foreign Policy" Kate looks at AI and specifically machine learning's (ML) effects on economic and trade dynamics, advancing an international human rights framework to apply to ML development, and analyzing global AI governance initiatives to understand Europe's position in international affairs. As part of the EU Cyber-Direct Project, Kate analyzes European cyber resilience policies to inform a debate on where Europe can foster strategic partnerships to push forward a global cyber resilience regime. With the Transatlantic Cyber Forum project, Kate manages the project on machine learning and information security as a way to understand potential for adversarial threats to ML systems and how this could be understood by policy makers as a danger to national security.
Kate holds a Master of International Affairs degree from the Hertie School of Governance, a public policy university in Berlin. Here she specialized in topics of digitalization, economic development, and governance, and concluded her studies with a capstone thesis on artificial intelligence and gender inequality in the United States labor economy. She also holds a Bachelor's degree in International Relations from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
