Better Images of AI


Article:We need better AI imagery for better science communication

Better Images of AI aims to create a repository of AI images that more realistically portray the technology and the people behind it and point towards its strengths, weaknesses, context and applications. I serve as an advisor for Better Images of AI created in collaboration with BBC UK R&D, We&AI and Leverhulme Center for the Future of Intelligence. 

“Current images of AI – widely used and available in stock libraries – are dominated by tropes such as white humanoid robots, blue backgrounds, glowing brains and science fiction imagery. Research into narratives as forms of sense-making AI has shown that these can impede the public understanding of AI, mask human agency, and reinforce damaging stereotypes.”
