The power, scope and resilience of the current AI boom has persuaded many observers that society may be approaching an inflection point in history. And yet this future is arriving with no small measure of uncertainty, trepidation and resistance. Participants of the 2017 Aspen Institute Roundtable on Artificial Intelligence, which took place in Aspen, Colorado, in August 2017, challenged the powerful narrative of AI’s growing dominance and inevitable influence on today’s society. Discussions traversed the philosophical to the applied, and raised deep, fundamental questions on how to guide the trajectory of AI “with meaning and dignity for humans.” The report, written by David Bollier, captures these discussions and provides potential pathways for AI governance by design.
