Co-Designing Generative Futures: A Global Conversation About AI
As generative AI technologies have advanced, so too has their potential to transform how people worldwide create, think, work, learn, solve problems, and govern. Given these far-reaching implications, leveraging generative AI to empower communities, advance equity, and mitigate harm will take intention and strategic study.
On May 17-19, 2023, in collaboration with the NCIS at BI Norwegian Business School, ITS Rio, TUM, and the Global Network of Internet & Society Centers, the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University hosted Co-Designing Generative Futures: A Global Conversation about AI.
Designed as an interactive and participatory forum for open knowledge exchange and mutual learning, this workshop brought together ninety-three decision-makers, experts, stakeholders, and students from diverse fields and disciplines and from six continents to address the opportunities and challenges of generative AI — both field-specific and cross-sectional, short-term and long-term, local and global. Additionally, the workshop served as an opportunity for participants to scope and identify mechanisms for collaboration, research, informal coordination, and the development of collective capacity.
Materials and output from the workshop will be available soon.
