MozFest Trustworthy AI Working Groups - Call for Projects

Featured image

Trustworthy AI Working groups are made up of community members who come together to work on technically focused projects that aim to build more Trustworthy AI. They meet from September 2022 through April 2023.

Trustworthy AI is artificial intelligence that is helpful — rather than harmful — to human beings. For us, this means two things: human agency is a core part of how AI is built and integrated and corporate accountability is real and enforced. AI  impacts nearly every digital technology we interact with today, and how we approach AI determines how much privacy, safety, trust, transparency, and fairness we create for ourselves and one another online and off.

We think of AI Builders as people who create TAI and machine learning (ML) products, like data scientists, developers, engineers, and product and project managers. 

We think of Civil Society Actors as people outside government and industry working in their local and global communities through art, journalism, policy-making, research, scholarship, activism and technical literacy efforts, who care about the impact of artificial intelligence.

These communities convene to promote Trustworthy AI through building better tools and technology and to think critically about how they impact our local and global societies.

More than ever, our online lives and societal issues are interconnected, and Artificial Intelligence is at the nexus. We know what’s at risk if AI is not trustworthy: our safety, security, privacy, and equality. 

But at Mozilla, we don’t shy away from tackling big issues — like ensuring the technology embedded in our daily lives helps, rather than harms, humanity. 

We are welcoming submissions from potential project leads who would like to join a Trustworthy AI Working Group and have an interest and/or expertise in either:

  • Building a prototype of a tool or technology that promotes Trustworthy AI for the Building Trustworthy AI Working Group. 
  • Launching a project or community of practice that helps civil society actors understand and promote Trustworthy AI as an essential part of their work for the Civil Society Actors for Trustworthy AI Working Group.

 

As we seek to support the MozFest community in building more tools and technology that promote Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence, we would like expert AI Builders to work alongside highly engaged Civil Society Actors in envisioning a more equitable automated future.

MozFest's Call for Session Proposals is OPEN!

Featured image

MozFest is a unique hybrid: part art, tech and society convening, part maker festival, and the premiere gathering for activists in diverse global movements fighting for a more humane digital world.

That’s why I’m excited to invite you and your community to participate in the first-ever virtual MozFest! There will also be a local taster event in Amsterdam.

Submit A Session Idea for MozFest This Year: mzl.la/proposals2021

We’re excited to use the programming that we’ve honed over a decade of festivals – participant-led sessions, immersive art exhibits, space for spontaneous conversations, inspiring Dialogues & Debates – to address current and global crises. Through our Call for Session Proposals (where you're invited to propose an interactive workshop to host at the festival), we’ll seek solutions together, through the lens of trustworthy artificial intelligence.

Anyone can submit a session – you don’t need any particular expertise, just a great project or idea and the desire to collaborate and learn from festival participants.

If you or someone you know is interested in leading a session at MozFest this year, you can submit your session idea here! The deadline is November 23.
