Story Written in the First Person Perspective

As a Democratic Socialist, I saw the rapid rise of AI technologies as both a potential tool for social justice and a significant existential risk if left uncontrolled. With this in mind, I launched the AI Safety Dance campaign. The idea of flash mobs dancing in robot costumes was born out of the need for an unconventional way to grab attention and start conversations about AI safety.

With breathtaking precision, our flash mobs took over public spaces near NGO offices worldwide. Our custom AI safety song echoed through the streets, and the sight of the AI Safety Dance went viral. It sparked not only the curiosity of the public but also stimulated vital discussions amongst NGOs about AI existential risk and the need for stronger AI safety measures.

The campaign reached millions, and the pressure it generated on NGOs led to the adoption of more stringent AI safety policies and actions. A global network of organizations now works together to ensure our future with AI is both prosperous and secure.

How Will Opponents to This Campaign Try to Stop It

Opponents of the campaign, mainly those with vested interests in unregulated AI development, may try to downplay the AI existential risks, dismiss the campaign as a stunt, or attempt to hinder our flash mobs by exerting pressure on local authorities or the NGOs themselves.

How Should Activists Respond to Opponent’s Attempts to Stop It

Activists should remain committed to the cause, emphasizing the importance of open discussions on AI safety, promoting dialogue, and ensuring that the campaign remains true to its mission. They should also be prepared to respond to criticism with facts, engage in respectful debates, and maintain a positive image throughout the campaign.
