Voice Magazine and the Mozilla Foundation would like to invite young people to join them for an afternoon exploring the impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on young people today. When: the afternoon will start at 1pm. We’ll finish around 4pm. Where: We will be at The Royal Society of Arts which is right next to Charing Cross station in London. What: After an intro, we’ll go hands on with AI for a while, then have a break and get into groups to discuss a few related questions: what good might AI do; how might it be used in the future; what should the product makers consider - your privacy, how you want to use it, and how far it should go. Who: Anyone aged 14-25 who can make it. You don’t have to be a techie, you don’t even have to know anything about how AI works. We want people to come along with all viewpoints, creator or consumer, to learn a bit about it and feed in to the conversation. Cost: FREE + there are some bursaries available to cover travel costs for young people to get to London, please see the details at: https://ti.to/upstart-projects/mozhouse-ai/ Any drinks? There’s free coffee and refreshments available. Added Bonus: All attendees on the day will receive a free ticket to attend the Mozilla Festival weekend 26-27 October at Ravensbourne University where you get:
  • 300+ workshops and sessions
  • Immersive hand-on experiences with the latest tech
  • Talks by leading voices from across the Internet health movement
  • Network and community building at our Sunday Breakfast
  • Engagement with artists as they respond to outcomes from sessions
  • Lunch both days and unlimited hot drinks
  • And Swag!
