AI at Diplo
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the theme of the day, as our society is on the eve of profound AI-driven changes. As technology continues to evolve at an unprecedented speed, questions that have been asked before now seem more pervasive: How intelligent is AI? Will machines replace us? Are our societies ready to embrace the good that AI has to offer while minimising the bad? Whom do we have to answer governance and policy calls on AI?
At Diplo, we are exploring these and related questions about AI in a holistic manner, implemented through research, training, events, software development, and arts. And because we strongly believe that human beings should remain the point of reference for the development and use of AI, we have given all this a telling name: humAInism.
HumAInism explores what AI can do for humanity and how humanity
can best be served by it.
Exploring the political, economic, and societal governance of AI. Monitoring governance processes at national, regional, and global levels.
Looking at the impact of AI on reporting, negotiations, forecasting, and other diplomatic functions. Applying theory in practice by developing practical tools for AI diplomacy.
Developing DiploGPT and other AI tools. Experimenting with bottom-up AI through the use of high-quality ‘small data’.
PHILOSOPHY, LINGUISTICS & ART
Analysing ethical, epistemological, and other philosophical aspects of AI developments. Diving deep into linguistical patterns behind Large Language Models.
Why bottom-up AI is critical for human freedom and prosperity
Technological solutions for bottom-up AI are feasible today. Will we use them as an alternative to top-down AI? For the time being, it remains anyone’s guess. Some individuals and communities may have more incentives and abilities to experiment with bottom-up AI than others. Some may continue to rely on top-down AI out of sheer inertia. And the two approaches may even co-exist. But we owe it to ourselves and to humanity to question what is being served to us, and to both explore and encourage alternatives. And, ultimately, to make informed decisions.
