About Event

How do you want the UK to change in the next 25 years thanks to AI?

Join us for a deep dive workshop where you'll get a chance to learn more about AI and develop your vision for the future.

Why Your Vision Matters

If you are like most people, you probably don't think of yourself as a "visionary." These days conversations about the future are too often dominated by wealthy tech billionaires. The rest of us are never asked what kind of changes we actually want to see—if we are asked anything at all!

We are hosting this workshop because we believe you shouldn't have to be an AI expert to have a vision about the future.

The Plan

  • 6:30pm: Food is served

  • 7pm: Brief introduction to AI and its potential impact on society, with time to ask of your questions

  • 7:30pm: Break into small groups where a facilitator will help you develop your vision

  • 9pm: Come together as a group to share visions and discover common ground

Special thanks to the Civic AI Observatory for generously hosting us at Newspeak House, and to the Alan Turing Institute for including this event in the AI UK Fringe 2024.

About the Organizers

About the Public AI Network: the Public AI Network is a collaborative effort between academics, public servants, and technologists working to bring about AI systems that are publicly-funded and act in the public interest. We believe that AI systems are vital pieces of public infrastructure - and should be seen as a way to empower the public with the capabilities they need to shape the futures they want.

About the Civic AI Observatory: The Civic AI Observatory is an initiative by Nesta and Newspeak House to support civic organisations' plans and adapt to the rapidly evolving field of Generative AI. We focus on immediate practical insights on AI for digital leads – case studies of civic applications, examples of digital strategies and organisational policies, and the impact on the job market – as well as developing communities of practice for specific domains.
