Trust & Technology Initiative


AI: Futures and Responsibility (AI:FAR) is a collaboration between the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (LCFI) and the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER), led by Dr Seán Ó hÉigeartaigh.

The programme has three interconnected aims: 

  1. improving our understanding of what kinds of developments in AI might have extreme and/or long-lasting impacts on society;
  2. developing recommendations for how we can shape those impacts in positive directions and mitigate risks today, and
  3. working with partners across policy, industry and civil society to implement those recommendations in practice.

Past and ongoing work from this group includes: identifying underexplored AI risk scenarios, such as those arising from malicious uses of AI; developing new methodologies for exploring diverse AI futures; developing recommendations and best practices for responsible, safe and inclusive AI development; and making recommendations to UK, EU and UN governance around AI ethics, safety, and long-term impacts.
