Takes place during Uroboros Festival 2021

The workshop by Erik Peters, Karolina Thakker, and Nadia Piet aims to explore the anxieties and prejudices people have around artificial intelligence. Instead of imagining the easy-coming-to-mind dystopia, they use SDGs as a compass to help people navigate towards preferable AI futures.

With the current tempo of change, many may experience being lost and confused. Luckily, tomorrow has not happened yet, so we all have a way of influencing it. Join us for the workshop session to imagine how we can achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with AI technologies. In the ‘Preferable AI Futures’ workshop, lecturers use the futures thinking methodology to imagine positive AI narratives for the days to come. In a 2 hour online session, take you on a healing journey across the spectrum of possible futures to narrow down to those that could bring a hopeful change. In these explorations, we use SDGs as moral guidelines that help us find ideas for AI products and services that could make these forecasts come true.

The results of the workshop are prototypes, the hopeful artefacts of the positive change that participants will want to see in the world. This workshop aims to explore the anxieties and prejudices we have around this technology and, instead of imagining the easy-coming-to-mind dystopia, focus our gaze on preferable AI futures. The event is part of an ongoing collaboration between AIxDesign and Speculative Futures Rotterdam.
