On 8 June 2022, we contribute to the UK Government’s Call for Evidence to the revised Online Safety Bill. Generally speaking, we welcome the considerations urged by the Online Safety Bill committee and we are excited about the potential impact that the Bill could bring to the current online experiences of the users, particularly children.
The Oxford CCAI (Child-Centred AI) team were well presented in Oxford University MPLS' Science Together 2022. We had the pleasure to run a taster App Club session with 27 students coming from Oxford Academy, based on the six-week programme we developed with LeysCDI (see app club).
The Leys-Oxford App Club supports young people from the Leys Community Development Initiative who are passionate about learning new mobile app development skills and broadening their experiences and knowledge. It is part of Oxford University’s SCIENCE TOGETHER initiative, which is a brand new, grass-roots programme that harnesses the power of community-led collaborative research projects, bringing together Oxford scientists and people who live and work in Oxfordshire, to address major issues and questions impacting local people’s lives.
The Colloquium assembles researchers from Oxford and from Goodenough working in AI, philosophy, legal regulation and public policy to consider how best the development of AI might be framed and regulated across different governments and societies.
