The Importance of Public Input in Designing AI Systems: In Conversation with The Collective Intelligence Project

About the Talk:

AI will have significant, far-reaching economic and societal impacts. Technology shapes the lives of individuals, how we interact with one another, and how society as a whole evolves. We believe that decisions about how AI systems behave should be shaped by diverse perspectives reflecting the public interest. Join Lama Ahmad (Policy Researcher at OpenAI) and Saffron Huang and Divya Siddarth (Co-Directors of the Collective Intelligence Project) in conversation to reflect on why public input matters for designing AI systems, and how these methods might be operationalized in practice.

The Collective Intelligence Project White Paper: The Collective Intelligence Project (CIP) is an incubator for new governance models for transformative technology. CIP will focus on the research and development of collective intelligence capabilities: decision-making technologies, processes, and institutions that expand a group’s capacity to construct and cooperate towards shared goals. We will apply these capabilities to transformative technology: technological advances with a high likelihood of significantly altering our society.
