Voices Against AI Existentialism
Challenging the unchecked growth of AI existentialism through targeted guerrilla campaign at social media companies.
Updated July 6, 2023
The idea is to create a guerrilla campaign that uses subtle yet powerful tactics to issue a sweeping challenge against the propagation of AI existentialism on social media platforms. Through the use of potent imagery and stark messaging, the campaign aims to prompt a transformative change in the way AI existentialism is treated and discussed by these platforms.
The campaign “Voices Against AI Existentialism” is designed to promote a large-scale discussion about the potential risks associated with artificial intelligence, targeting primarily social media companies. Operating under a far-right ideology, the campaign intends to use a budget of $1,000 to $5,000 over the course of 363 days. The core of the campaign is guerrilla-style tactics that include viral misinformation warnings, vivid animations depicting the dangers of unchecked AI existentialism, and a sustained social media pressure campaign.
Theory for Why This Campaign Will Create Change
Drawing inspiration from historical protests such as the Boston Tea Party and the Occupy Wall Street movement, this campaign aims to spark conversation and reaction in a similar manner. The use of guerrilla tactics is proven to disrupt the norm and force attention towards the cause. In a world highly influenced by social media, challenging these platforms at the heart of their impact area promises a ripple effect.
