February 23rd – The Big AI Debate: Who Gets to Decide?

Who gets to decide how AI impacts our communities, health, and wellbeing? An interactive debate with thought leaders in AI, democratic decision-making, and data ethics.


The big question

The Liverpool City Region Civic Data Cooperative at the University of Liverpool invites you to a public debate on public involvement in data and artificial intelligence (AI).

The growing use of AI in policy and health decision-making has far-reaching potential. From writing poetry to preventing the next pandemic, anything seems possible. But research shows that AI can make our existing problems worse. Data used to train AI can reinforce inequalities and racism making it harder to access good healthcare or fair justice for all communities.

How can the potential of AI meet the needs of society now and in the future? How do we prevent AI from being used to cause more harm than good? And who gets to decide what the future will look like?

Now is the time for us to shape who gets a say in how these developments impact our health, wellbeing, and society. 

Join our expert speakers to discuss how to balance the potential of AI with better public engagement and decision-making.

Who gets to decide how AI, impacts our communities, health, and wellbeing?
