What is a Citizens’ Think-in? ADAPT’s Citizens’ Think-Ins are public forums that bring people together to discuss some of the ethical issues we face in the digital age. They give the public an opportunity to interact with and inform research at the cutting-edge of AI research and development. What do I need to do? To join in the Think-In, all we ask is that you are open to listening to ideas and sharing thoughts. Our researchers want insights from people to inform their work and this includes whether you agree or disagree with the research direction, are confused or empowered by the emerging insights and whether you think it is impactful or not. Your participation means that you will have the chance to steer research through these conversations. How does it work? No previous knowledge of the theme is necessary. We ensure the themes we use are relevant to everyday life. Real world scenarios will be provided so that people can imagine the potential outcomes despite their previous experiences. Participants will be given a full introduction to the topic at the event by our team. They will then be invited to share opinions in group discussions and no expertise in the area is required – all necessary details will be provided, and the organizers are interested in hearing opinions from everyone.
