Echoborg Goes Ethical

We have been developing I am Echoborg since 2016 and in 2022 we received funding to transition the show into one that explicitly explores the unforeseen consequences of allowing AIs to make decisions on our behalf.

Continuing our experimental methodology of building and testing, we'd like it to become a tool for planners, designers and implementers of AI systems to explore potential ethical problems. We are particularly interested in reflecting the unheard voices of groups and individuals who are affected by AI but under-represented in their design.

Trailblazer funding from Bristol and Bath Creative R&D and Digital Cultures Research Centre allowed us to develop some new elements to the show and prepare a larger funding bid. We are working with Dr. Patrick Crogan, Associate Professor of Digital Cultures and Dr. Matthew Studley, Professor in Technology Ethics, both from the University of the West of England, Bristol.
