Have I Got an AI Assignment for You! Speculative AI Futures – Inspiration & Creation

Estimated reading time: 1 minute, 8 seconds

So if you’re getting stuck on what kind of assignment to give your students next, try this one.

Invite your students to read this multi-authored (36 authors I think!) article that contains multiple (over 60!) positive and negative speculative fiction stories about AI from people from all over the world. Then invite them to either reflect on each story, or develop their own story for the future of AI in their own discipline. I guess you could ask them to write their story with or without AI, and include an image generated by AI… or not…

The article by Bozkurt et al (phenomenal job by Aras, I will never forget his vision, leadership and coordination) was just published today:
