Will Art Survive In the Age of Generative AI? With Kieran Henstenburg and Christopher Shannon [S4E19]

Welcome back to the Tech Policy Grind Podcast by the Internet Law & Policy Foundry! In this episode, Class 4 Fellow Lama Mohammed chats with Glen Echo Group’s Creative Director, Christopher Shannon, and Associate Designer Kieran Henstenburg.

The Glen Echo Group is a public affairs and public relations firm headquartered in Washington, D.C.,  specializing in policy and communications in technology policy. GEG works across the digital ecosystem, including artificial intelligence, broadband, cybersecurity, immersive technology, privacy, and more.

In this conversation, Lama chats with Christopher and Kieran about how organizations’ creative and design teams can set up guardrails when utilizing generative artificial intelligence and the ethical questions to consider when using the technology.

With the ongoing Writer’s Strike still dominating headlines, our experts dive into the importance of accountability, transparency, and responsible usage of AI-enabled tools to protect the artistic and entertainment industry. They balance these considerations with that of still being able to democratize the field for underrepresented communities.

You can connect with Christopher and Kieran on LinkedIn and view all the great work they do for the Glen Echo Group by visiting the firm’s website or following the Glen Echo Group on social media.
