The Berkeley Ethics and Regulation Group for Innovative Technologies (BERGIT) is an ideas exchange and a meeting ground for discussions across disciplines to integrate ethics, regulation, and policy with science. Our goal is to provide space for discussion, facilitate insight, and instigate a proactive cultural shift in responsible innovation. BERGIT is led by an interdisciplinary team with expertise in Ethics, Law, Public Health, and Molecular Biology and has participants from the Bay Area and beyond.
Upon the creation of the Kavli Center for Ethics, Science, and the Public, BERGIT has become a program co-hosted by the Kavli Center and the Innovative Genomics Institute, where it began. The Kavli Center has brought in expertise in AI and Neuroscience and provides the catalyst to expand topics and create new series integrated with the Kavli Fellows.
