Raising awareness among citizens and advocating for their participation in the safe and ethical deployment of AI is the raison d’être of CIVICAi. The emergence in recent months of AI applications that reach the hands of millions of people around the world has put at the center of public debate the social, economic, and environmental impact of this technology, as well as its ethical implications and significance for the future of humanity and the planet. CIVICAi works to turn this citizen concern into action with the following principles:
1. DEMOCRATIC REGULATION OF AI. Urging the Governments of Catalonia, Spain, and the European Union to urgently implement (beyond recommendations) all regulations already envisaged on the social applications of AI.
2. PARTICIPATION OF CIVIL SOCIETY. Asserting that civil society must be involved, in a democratically agreed manner, in the regulation for an harmonious and ethical deployment of AI, beyond the participation of Experts, Companies, and Governments.
3. COLLABORATION WITH ENTITIES. We have established the Social Council on a permanent basis, with the aim of working for the practical implementation of this regulation with all stakeholders, and to ensure Citizen Participation throughout this process.
