The impacts of AI are all too often felt first by marginalized groups. How can we include their input in the decision-making process of governance? We must work with grassroots groups who have a history and relationship in working with diverse communities that are inclusive of the global poor. Including grassroots groups in the decision-making process can not be a one-way street. Diverse xperiences are beneficial for all involved.
Looking to Eastern concepts of an organizational philosophy like the Tao, we can see that there should be a balance of exchange. A fellowship program that is bi-directional embodies these concepts. Grassroots groups working with marginalized communities send fellows to AI policy centers and Ploci and governance organizations send fellows to the grassroots groups.
Funding and governance - TBD.
