The Future Society coordinated an unprecedented 7-month civic consultation open to the public to better understand the rise, dynamics and consequences of AI (www.aicivicdebate.org). Engineered through the online collective intelligence platform Assembly and over 20 global events, we assembled a diverse community of over 2,000 participants from around the world, with over 3,300 contributions in five languages (English, Chinese, French, Japanese and Russian), to garner novel perspectives on the governance of AI. The report was released at the European Parliament on September 2018.
