The public launch and mass uptake of ChatGPT in 2022 marked a watershed moment in the history of Artificial Intelligence (AI). ChatGPT, and other chatbots like it, increased the accessibility of generative AI to a wider public and brought more acute attention to AI-powered applications. Since then, the public and media’s sustained interest in AI has revealed the need for further platforms to discuss the safe development and deployment of AI. Hearing from a range of voices will be critical to realising the benefits of AI and to managing the potential risks presented in the short, medium and long-term.
