Join the Tech Policy Lab and CASRIP for a talk on “AI and the Law: Setting the Stage in China.”

Dr. HAO Yuan will discuss China’s AI awakening, the challenges it poses, and how law might address those challenges. How can the law ensure that AI innovation will bring humans optimal welfare and happiness, rather than risk and harm? How should law interact with other forms of governance, including ethics, social norms, and technology itself?

Dr. HAO Yuan is a researcher at the Tsinghua-Microsoft Innovation and IP Research Center. Her current fields of interest include patent law, anti-monopoly law, and how patent law facilitates innovation in China. Dr. Hao has a B.S. in Physics from Peking University, a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Pennsylvania State University, and a J.D. from Brooklyn Law School. She is qualified to practice law in both China and New York. After practicing for years as an IP litigation attorney at King & Wood Mallesons, Dr. Hao joined the Center as a full-time researcher and also teaches advanced IP law courses at Tsinghua School of Law. Dr. Hao is the recipient of an IP Square Fellowship from Stanford University’s Hoover Institution for the years 2016-2018.
