In Search of the Altruithm: AI and the Future of Social Good

Although the consequences of a world dominated by AI are difficult to predict, the rise of AI does not have to be a terrifying prospect.

But it will only do so if civil society — including citizens living at the margins, and people involved in social good pursuits, from artists and teachers to health professionals and social workers — become much more interested and involved.
