Research Project Marketing Manager – Better Images of AI (1 day per week)

About us

Better images of

We and AI runs the programme Better images of AI, which is a collaboration with the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, BBC Research & Development, and contributed to and supported by a range of individual volunteers and supporting organisations. These include The Alan Turing Institute, Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence, AI Sweden, The Ada Lovelace Insititute, Digital Catapult, All Tech is Human, Feminist Internet, and several other universities and non-profit organisations.

The programme aims to research, create, curate and make freely available more realistic and inclusive stock images of AI. This is because most available stock images are abstract, futuristic or science-fiction-inspired images which hinder the understanding of the technology’s already significant societal and environmental impacts. For example, images relating machine intelligence to human intelligence set unrealistic expectations and misstate the capabilities of AI, and can be laden with historical assumptions about gender, ethnicity and religion.

We and AI

We and AI is a Non-Profit Organisation working to increase the awareness and understanding of Artificial Intelligence. We are currently creating ways to engage people in the potential risks and rewards of the AI already in their lives and to show different ways to get their voices heard.

LCFI, University of Cambridge research project 

This role is funded solely by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), awarded to the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, University of Cambridge, to provide a research evidence base to inform the definition and development of better images of AI. The primary investigator of this project is Senior Research Fellow Dr Kanta Dihal, who has published many related books, journal articles and papers related to emerging technology narratives and public perceptions.

Through building an international network that brings together AI experts, media representatives, artists, activists, and the professionals who use these stock images, this particular project aims to investigate how best to identify existing and develop new stock images that both meet the needs of the users and accurately shape public perceptions.
