Hillary Clinton will be descending on the Stanford University campus Friday for an inaugural conference that will welcome a new initiative focused on digital policy.

The center also aims to address digital rights, digital security, artificial intelligence-based governance and transnational internet governance, among other issues, according to Stanford officials.
The daylong conference will end with the former Secretary of State's talk that will explore digital technology, diplomacy and democratic values. The 4:30 p.m. discussion will take place at the Cemex Auditorium at the Knight Management Center, Stanford Graduate School of Business, 655 Knight Way.
She will be in conversation with Eileen Donahoe, executive director of the Global Digital Policy Incubator and former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Clinton is coming to the university nearly a year after last year's presidential election, a race she discusses in her new memoir, "What Happened," which was published last month.
Tickets to the Clinton event on Friday is only be open to Stanford students under a lottery system.
