Arts and humanities shaping the AI future

Matthew Studley, Scott Delahunta

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The organisation of this event was motivated by the view there should be more Arts and Humanities (A&H) perspectives, methods and approaches involved in shaping our future relationship with AI technology. Our invitation was sent to the most diverse group we could imagine being interested in this view. Positive responses to the invitation, rich discussions during and critical reflections after the meeting in general confirms this view. Besides facilitating a discussion amongst this group of participants from different disciplines, the event was not outcome-driven. Some information as well as questions were gathered before the meeting. At the meeting, example projects using A&H methods to shape relationships with AI technology were presented as triggers for small group discussions to follow. Note takers collected and summarised discussion highlights at the end of the day, and invitations for post-meeting follow up reflections were sent. This report provides a relatively detailed account of these activities, the conditions and what was shared. Writing this has been useful for considering what might come next, which we are currently reflecting on.
