Artificial Intelligence (AI) is playing a growing role in our lives. Machine learning tools help determine the ads you see online, the news you read and the products you purchase. Every time we send a text, use a credit card or sync a wearable device we are sharing personal information about ourselves.

But what are the social consequences of AI? How is our information being used? Who is setting the policies and regulation? And how can AI affect our privacy and civil liberties?

The ADAPT Centre for Digital Content Technology will host a Citizens’ Think-In to discuss some of the ethical issues we face in data storage and dissemination in the digital age.

Participants will be asked to consider a series of scenarios relating to AI and discuss the various outcomes that can arise from these new technological advancements. By exploring the impact of these scenarios on the individual and society at large, we’ll uncover the emerging risks and opportunities of AI and explore how research can ensure the age of AI is inclusive of everyone.

No previous knowledge of AI is required – we’ll teach you all you need to know so that you can share your views.

Come and have your say!
