How do AI narratives from different cultures influence how people imagine future AI technology? Guided by this question, a new publication explores perspectives from Japan and Germany.
The study is also relevant from a democratic perspective as it addresses the question: How can AI development become more participatory and inclusive so that new technologies enjoy more public acceptance in the end?
The study has been developed in a collaboration by Yosuke Buchmeier (Japan Center, LMU) with Michel Hohendanner (Munich Center for Digital Sciences and AI, Munich University of Applied Sciences), Chiara Ullstein (Department of Computer Science, Technical University of Munich), and Jens Großklags (Department of Computer Science, Technical University of Munich).
