Apologies for cross-posting. Please circulate to any individuals or lists
that may be interested.

7 days until the deadline! Just need to submit a quick one-pager on the
future of AI by Sept. 30

Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing work, including
what it means for cooperative work to be supported by computers. The
increased use of AI in Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) can lead
to many advantages, including increased productivity and efficiency, but it
can also include several potential ethical trade-offs, such as invasions of
privacy, loss of autonomy, and job displacement. This workshop
<> will explore the ethical
dimensions of AI in CSCW, building on Good Systems, a UT Grand Challenge
<>, which was recently
launched by President Fenves at his State of the University Address
<> last week.
Specifically, the workshop will focus on the need to design AI to work for
all users and to avoid bias through the use of universal design as well as
the need for AI and CSCW researchers to interact with policy and legal
experts to work together to ensure that AI will be developed in an ethical
manner with sufficient consideration of its societal implications, and also
that AI will be regulated and legislated in ways that will maximize its
benefits to all people.
