Outreach to the general population and policymakers is essential to raise awareness, foster understanding, and drive action on AI regulation. Below are some of the activities that the AI Ethics Alliance proposes to that end.

Outreach to the general population:

  1. Educational workshops and seminars: Organize events that cover AI Ethics, facilitate discussions, and provide opportunities for learning and engagement with experts.
  2. Social media campaigns: Use social media platforms to share information, initiate discussions, and engage with the general population on AI Ethics.
  3. Public lectures and panel discussions: Invite our members and other experts, activists, and community leaders to give public talks or participate in panel discussions that are open to the public.
  4. Collaborations with schools and universities: Partner with educational institutions to incorporate AI Ethics into their curricula as a more relevant subject, organize events, and facilitate student engagement.
  5. Community events and festivals: Organize and participate in community-based events, that promote awareness and understanding of AI Ethics.
  6. Traditional media engagement: Write articles or op-eds for newspapers, give interviews on radio and television, create documentaries that present information and insights on relevant topics, write books, etc.
  7. Partnerships with organisations that share our purpose: Collaborate with organisations, NGOs, and other community-based groups to organise joint campaigns and initiatives that address shared concerns on AI Ethics.

Outreach to policymakers:

  1. Policy briefs and whitepapers: Prepare and distribute concise, evidence-based documents that provide recommendations and insights on key issues for policymakers to consider.
  2. Expert testimony: Offer expert testimony at legislative hearings, regulatory meetings, or other policymaking forums to provide insights and recommendations based on research and experience.
  3. Networking and relationship-building: Attend conferences, workshops, and other events where policymakers are present to establish connections and engage in dialogue on important issues.
  4. Targeted email campaigns: Send personalized emails to policymakers and their staff members all over the world, providing information and recommendations on relevant issues.
  5. Coalition-building: Form alliances with other organizations, researchers, and stakeholders that share similar goals and objectives to amplify the impact of outreach efforts.
  6. Roundtable discussions and policy forums: Organize events that bring together policymakers, experts, and stakeholders to discuss pressing issues, share perspectives, and identify potential solutions.
  7. In-person meetings: Request meetings with policymakers or their staff members to discuss important issues, present findings, and share recommendations.

By combining these strategies and tailoring them to the specific needs and interests of the general population and policymakers, effective outreach can be achieved, ultimately leading to a better understanding of AI Ethics and more informed decision-making.

The ultimate goal is not just to inform but to make sure that actions are being taken to put AI in a path that does not clash with the interests of humankind.
