Claire has worked in AI and society for almost a decade, developing multistakeholder strategies, researching responsible AI, and informing technology practices and policies.
Under Claire’s leadership, the AI and Media Integrity team creates best practices for the development and deployment of AI technologies that impact digital media and online information. Through research and convenings, the program focuses on how we build a healthy information ecosystem in the AI age— with an explicit focus on generative AI, misinformation interventions, responsible recommender systems, and the sustainability of local news.
She also oversees PAI’s AI and Media Integrity Steering Committee—a formal body of PAI Partners including multidisciplinary experts from Adobe, Amazon, BBC, CBC, Code for Africa, Google, Meedan, Meta, Microsoft, The New York Times, WITNESS, and XPRIZE working to develop and advise projects that strengthen online public discourse. Before launching the AI and Media Integrity Program, Claire worked to develop and lead all of PAI’s Program Areas, including those focused on AI safety, the future of work, human-AI collaboration, and fairness, transparency, and accountability challenges. In 2021, Claire was a Journalism Fellow at Tablet Magazine, where she explored questions at the intersection of technology, society, and digital culture.
In summer 2022, Claire was a Fellow at The Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center Residency Program focused on AI governance.
Claire’s insights have appeared in publications such as Axios, CNN, Consumer Reports, MIT Tech Review, WIRED, The Hill, TechTarget, and IEEE Spectrum. She has presented the work she leads at PAI at conferences such as NeurIPS, CHI, ICA, RightsCon, and Trust and Truth Online, and she has advised companies, governments, and nonprofit organizations on AI governance, generative AI, digital media, and online information.
