About the presentation
This presentation on How AI interacts with public value creation will draw from a few case studies of the use and potential of AI for public good. In particular, the use of co-design approaches to enhance community understanding of the value and its limitations. The work presents the importance of diversity and inclusion of both designing and innovation that occurs when AI is used in partnership with people. Also, discussed are creativity and opportunities that are lost if we only see AI from a pure economic value rather than an opportunity for social justice and sustainability that is shaped by using such technologies in partnership with the public.
