    Beginning in September 2022, the AI-MAPS (AI for Multi-Agency Public Safety issues) consortium is examining the Ethical, Legal, and Social aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the realm of public safety. The public good of safety matters to all of us and therefore needs to be jointly shaped and maintained by all societal partners. Data generated by multiple agents play an increasingly important role in preventing, preparing for and mitigating harm or disaster. The development of an ecosystem of trust regarding AI-assisted public safety promotion is central to this ELSA Lab application.

    AI MAPS is creating a mutual-learning ecosystem of quadruple helix agents to responsibly guide the growing use of AI applications. The quadruple helix consists of 20 partners from academic research, government, business and civil society. Together, they will combine their knowledge, experiences and perspectives to produce ELSA guidelines to best meet diverse citizen needs and an investment framework that will provide guidance on what kinds of AI applications are worth investing in.

    WdKA’s involvement in AI-MAPS is led by ginger coons, who is a senior researcher on the project, representing WdKA and RASL.



    The PRESAGE consortium is engaging the public and working towards aligning the decisions we make about human germline gene editing technology with what we value and consider important as a society.
