Claire Leibowicz

Partnership on AI, Head of AI and Media Integrity

Claire Leibowicz has worked in AI and society for almost a decade, developing multistakeholder strategies, researching responsible AI and informing technology practices and policies.

Under her 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, UL and WITNESS working to develop and advise projects that strengthen online public discourse. In 2023, Leibowicz led the development and launch of PAI’s Responsible Practices for Synthetic Media, a framework for creating, building, and distributing synthetic media responsibly with OpenAI, Bumble, TikTok and 15 other organizations. Before launching the AI and Media Integrity Program, she 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, she was a Journalism Fellow at Tablet Magazine, where she explored questions at the intersection of technology, society and digital culture.

In summer 2022, Leibowicz was a fellow at The Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center Residency Program focused on AI governance.

Leibowicz’s insights have appeared in publications such as Axios, CNN, Consumer Reports, The New York Times, NPR, MIT Tech Review, WIRED, The Hill, TechTarget and the Wall Street Journal. 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.

Leibowicz holds a BA in Psychology and Computer Science from Harvard and a master’s degree in the Social Science of the Internet from Balliol College, Oxford where she studied as a Clarendon scholar. Her doctoral work is generously funded by the Oxford Internet Institute Shirley Scholarship.
