The future of AI innovations has societal and ethical impacts. Bringing a variety of perspectives and voices into dialogue now will help us in responding not only to our present moment but also in shaping our collective futures. The relationship between technology innovation and education is often one of creator/subject, with teachers and students used by developers to gather “feedback”. We believe that students and teachers have the right to join the ethical debates raised around artificial intelligence and humanity, that the technology community has a responsibility to hear their voices, and that only through mutual examination of these big questions will we be able to shape a future that prioritizes technology in service of humanity. This presentation brings together members of the learning ecosystem in Pittsburgh, a hub for techno-social experimentation around the dissemination of artificial intelligence in community settings, to discuss a recent series of public forums. These community discussions have served to center questions on the intersection of artificial intelligence, ethics, and the education landscape. Our presentation will bring a sampling of activities, thought experiments, and deep inquiry experience from these community forums as a means of expanding the conversation and broadening our collective understanding of these critical issues.
