The visionaries who created the Internet imagined the system as a new opportunity for the spread of democratization, participation, and global cooperation. However, the Internet has been involved in much of today’s discord, whether that be the spread of misinformation or the growing backlash against globalization. Dr. David Bray, the inaugural director of the Atlantic Council’s GeoTech Center, spoke on the Alldus’s AI In Action podcast series on the current state of the Internet and how it can be reshaped using AI to create a people-centered ecosystem that benefits everyone.

This discussion was in Dr. Bray’s role as past roles as Visiting Executive in Residence at Harvard University and Executive Director for the People-Centered Internet coalition. This was prior to his start as the inaugural director for the Atlantic Council’s new GeoTech Center. Watch the episode to hear Dr. Bray’s full discussion of his background and his vision for how AI development could reshape how we use the Internet.
