Research, leadership, and communication about AI futures. 
Bridging near- and long-term concerns about AI
This divide in debate about the impacts of AI is a mistake — the connections between the two perspectives deserve more attention, say Stephen Cave and Seán S. ÓhÉigeartaigh.
Constructive Approximation and Learning by Greedy Algorithms
Smart machines are not a threat to humanity
Worrying about machines that are too smart distracts us from the real and present threat from machines that are too dumb.
AI for Not Bad
Through a critical reflection, it is explored how notions of AI for social good are vague, offer insufficient criteria for judgement, and elide the externalities and structural interdependence of AI systems.
Philosophical foundations for informing the future(S) through IS research
This essay draws on Feenberg’s philosophy of “potentiality and actuality” of technology as a foundation to consider how knowledge generated through IS research about the sociotechnical past and present might inform futures-oriented inquiry.
Who speaks for AI?
These are boom times for AI, with millions of people routinely use AI-based systems that the founders of the field would hail as miraculous and a palpable sense of excitement about impending applications of AI technologies.
Intersecting Imaginaries
It is demonstrated how decentralized autonomous systems are related to imaginaries about the organization of and the future of work, and ways of using the concept of imaginaries in participatory design are suggested.
Impact of an Artificial Intelligence Research Frame on the Perceived Credibility of Educational Research Evidence
The results demonstrate that when educational research evidence is framed within AI research, it is considered as less credible in comparison to when it is framed instead within neuroscience or educational psychology.
What is AI Literacy? Competencies and Design Considerations
A variety of interdisciplinary literature is synthesized into a set of core competencies of AI literacy and several design considerations to support AI developers and educators in creating learner-centered AI are suggested.
An Instrument for Measuring Teachers’ Trust in AI-Based Educational Technology
Evidence from various domains underlines the key role that human factors, and especially, trust, play in the adoption of technology by practitioners. In the case of Artificial Intelligence (AI)


Principles of mixed-initiative user interfaces
Recent debate has centered on the relative promise of focusinguser-interface research on developing new metaphors and tools thatenhance users abilities to directly manipulate objects versusdirecting
Generalized Task Markets for Human and Machine Computation
This work presents infrastructure and methods for enlisting and guiding human and machine computation for language translation, including details about the hardness of generating plans for assigning tasks to solvers.
Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies
The human brain has some capabilities that the brains of other animals lack. It is to these distinctive capabilities that our species owes its dominant position. Other animals have stronger muscles
Combining human and machine intelligence in large-scale crowdsourcing
A set of Bayesian predictive models from data are constructed and described how the models operate within an overall crowd-sourcing architecture that combines the efforts of people and machine vision on the task of classifying celestial bodies defined within a citizens' science project named Galaxy Zoo.
The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies
What do you do to start reading the second machine age work progress and prosperity in the time of brilliant technologies? Searching the book that you love to read first or find an interesting book
Crystal structure of a monomeric retroviral protease solved by protein folding game players
Players of the protein folding game Foldit were able to generate models of sufficient quality for successful molecular replacement and subsequent structure determination of M-PMV retroviral protease, providing new insights for the design of antiretroviral drugs.
ROSRV: Runtime Verification for Robots
RV aims to address the safety and security issues of robots by providing a transparent monitoring infrastructure that intercepts and monitors the commands and messages passing through the system.
