Democracy in 2030: can we create public-interest AI?

Zoom Room 4A
Amy Studdart

Most AI research and product development is conducted by actors who are primarily commercially motivated, and the plethora of our ethical discussions are focused on ensuring commercially driven AI research and development does not explicitly harm human rights or set back democracy. There is less discussion about how we can create a future in which AI is actively pro-democracy, pro-inclusion, pro-rights, and, ultimately, pro-humanity. What kind of ecosystem would that require? Can we take inspiration from the open source movement or public-interest technology development? Should governments play a role?
