Why the hype?
Everyone is talking about aritificial intelligence, but our conversations are riddled with hype, myths and inaccuracies. Even the term AI is mired in disagreement and deception.

Many people and organisations are working to ensure that the various technologies and systems we refer to as 'AI' are developed in a manner that respects our human rights, promotes social justice, and empowers vulnerable people. To do that work, however, means constantly fighting against hype, myths, and inaccuracies about AI that blind us to what is really going on, or twist the narrative in favour of certain interests.

For my Mozilla Fellowship project, I will be working to challenge these narratives, debunk these myths, and counter the hype and inaccuracies with solid arguments and facts. As part of this process, I want to open up a consultation to the public to find out which myths cause the most harm, and what we can do to counter them.

And please, if you think one of the 'myths' listed is actually true, feel free to get in touch and defend it!

Please contribute to this task by answering the questions below, or feel free to get in touch here:
