Story Written in the First Person Perspective

As an anarcho-communist activist, I’ve always been concerned about the potential end of humanity due to unregulated AI development. I knew that raising awareness, especially among those directly involved in the development and deployment of AI technologies, was crucial. That’s why I co-founded the AI: Educate to Regulate campaign.

We started small, organizing a single teach-in with local experts, and before we knew it, our cause gained momentum. The number of participants and supporters grew, and it became clear that our initiative was resonating with our target audience in the military and defense sector. Our teach-ins spread across the country, making a lasting impression on those who attended.

Eventually, our voices could no longer be ignored. We witnessed policy changes and witnessed new legislation introduced to regulate AI development in the military and defense sector. The AI: Educate to Regulate campaign had achieved its goal – a victory for humanity.
