STORY WRITTEN IN THE FIRST PERSON PERSPECTIVE DESCRIBING THE CAMPAIGN’S ORIGIN AND EVENTUAL SUCCESS
As an activist deeply concerned with the existential risks of AI, I knew that radical change was necessary. I organized a small team of like-minded individuals and launched AI Reckon, a guerrilla campaign that would force human rights organizations to confront AI risks head-on.
Over the course of 27 days, our team created powerful murals, engaged in online activism, and sent personalized messages to key decision-makers within human rights groups. The response was overwhelming, as the campaign spread rapidly through social media shares, news articles, and word of mouth.
As a result, several major human rights organizations announced new initiatives to address AI safety and policy development, sparking a much-needed conversation and driving transformative change on a global scale.
HOW WILL OPPONENTS TO THIS CAMPAIGN TRY TO STOP IT
Opponents to the campaign may try to downplay the existential risks of AI or dismiss our efforts as exaggeration. Additionally, they might attempt to remove street art installations or counter our online presence with their own narratives.
HOW SHOULD ACTIVISTS RESPOND TO OPPONENT’S ATTEMPTS TO STOP IT
Activists should remain dedicated to spreading information on AI risks and engaging in open dialogue with critics. Utilize reputable sources and data-backed arguments to counter misinformation and promote transparency and honesty.
