As part of this year’s annual planning process, the Foundation has been tracking recent advancements in artificial intelligence (AI). Since there has been a great deal of interest in and discussion about AI products like ChatGPT and what it means for Wikimedia over the past few months, we’d love to explore this topic in more depth with communities and continue the conversation about its implications for us as a free knowledge movement, including opportunities, risks and open questions.
The call will be held on Zoom. If you’re interested in joining, email email@example.com and we will share the Zoom link with you via email. We will work to coordinate interpretation for languages where there are 3 or more interested community members; please email firstname.lastname@example.org with interpretation requests as well.
For those who are unable to join the call, but interested in following and contributing to the conversation, we plan to share notes on our External Trends Meta page afterward so that you can add your thoughts.
Whether in person or on-wiki, I hope you’ll share your ideas so that we can all get a broader understanding of the potential benefits and challenges of this emergent technology.
