Artificial Intelligence is a powerful collective imaginary onto which we project our fears, hopes and aspirations. A lot of people often associate AI trajectory to a linear, predetermined path often underestimating their agency. Through collaborative writing workshops (fiction and horizon scanning), our design fiction methodology empowers communities and organizations to retake control over the course of AI development and adoption. We developed our methodology during the Global Civic Debate on Governing the Rise of AI we led in 2018. One of our most popular thematics addressed the ‘Imaginaries of AI’. We collected over 300 short stories written during our workshops or posted directly on the platform.
