Bing Song is Senior Vice President of the Berggruen Institute and Director of the Institute’s China Center.

Prior to joining the Berggruen Institute, she was a senior executive with Goldman Sachs China for over a decade, and prior to Goldman, an experienced capital markets lawyer for many years. Earlier in her career, she undertook academic and policy research and published in the areas of administrative law, competition law, and comparative procedural laws. 

Recently, she co-edited Gongsheng Across Contexts – A Philosophy of Co-becoming, which explores philosophical foundation of gongsheng , a conception of the world as consisting of mutually embedded, co-existent and co-becoming entities. Her edited volume Wisdom and Intelligence – Artificial Intelligence Meets Chinese Philosophers, published in 2021, marked the first systematic endeavor by prominent Chinese philosophers to address challenges and opportunities posed by frontier technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics. In addition, Bing leads other projects of the China Center, which explore the intersection of frontier sciences and technologies, and Chinese philosophy.
