Hi, I’m futurist Mal Fletcher. For four decades, I’ve dedicated my life to helping people from all walks of life engage the future today. I've done this in more than 40 countries, through mass media advocacy*, conferences, education programs, research, and writing. I’m supported in this by committed volunteers at the 2030Plus futures forum and the Next Wave International charity.
Now, in the face of world-changing artificial intelligence (AI), we’re stepping up our work in media advocacy and public education. AI technology is evolving rapidly. It is crucial that we understand its far-reaching implications. From the ethics of AI to its impact on jobs, privacy, healthcare, education, cyber-security, mental health, the environment and warfare, the challenges we face are immense.
That's why we’re launching a ground-breaking campaign to support research, education, and media advocacy regarding the human and environmental impact of AI and machine learning. We must act now while we still have time to shape the ethics that should drive AI's development.
(*My commentary has featured extensively on BBC TV and radio, plus Sky, CNBC, ABC, GBNews, TalkTV, and many global platforms.)
The Urgency of Our Cause
To accelerate our efforts, we need your support to raise £25,000 by the end of April 2024. This essential funding will enable us to expand our media advocacy, empowering us to reach a wider audience and drive meaningful change. By supporting this campaign, you will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of AI and ensuring its responsible implementation. Again, we can't wait another year or two to move on this. Growth in AI is moving faster than our collective ethics can keep up!
