TL;DR: do you have 30min for a study contributing to AIA standards also resulting in a contribution to charity for your time spent?
We are inviting you to take part in a research study which Pour Demain and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam are conducting on development-phase risk assessments for AI systems. The link to the study is here. The survey will close on the
12th 15th December 2023 at 23:59 CET.
You can pick a time here to do the survey so you don't have to remember/use up your mental RAM (this creates a calendar event for you).
As you may know, the majority of a group of experts recently surveyed by Schuett et al. indicated that conducting a development-phase risk assessment is an important practice for AI labs.
Our study aims to better understand how development-phase risk assessments could be carried out in practice and what they would reveal. This will inform Pour Demain's contribution to standard setting for the EU AI Act.
The study involves participating in an up to 30-minute creative exercise to identify and analyze potential risks. To minimise time requirements, we recommend doing this with a keyboard/voice-typing. There are no right or wrong answers - the goal is simply to generate ideas and think through different risk scenarios.
Your valuable participation would help advance the discussion on developing standardized yet practical risk assessment procedures. It would also provide an opportunity to clarify your own thinking on AI safety challenges. What's more is that for every participant we're donating a contribution to charity (also giving more you spend longer, to show this doesn't go by unseen!).
All responses will be kept confidential. However, you may indicate that you have contributed to this survey if you wish. If you are interested in taking part, please click the survey link here
We greatly appreciate you taking the time to support this research. We would further be very grateful if you would forward this survey to three other experts in your network who you think have something to contribute on the topic.
