The Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS) group at James Cook University invites Year 9 students to attend the Futures Thinking workshop. Students will meet and engage with social scientists and learn how AI and social sciences impact our everyday lives.

Artificial Intelligence is everywhere – we talk about it in classrooms, on the news, on social media, and it’s fast becoming part of our everyday lives. But what does AI mean for people and for society? What are the ethical issues involved? Spend a day exploring these questions at JCU.

September 4 to 10 is Social Sciences Week in Australia. The theme for 2023 is Social Sciences are Everywhere. On Friday, 8 September, the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS) group at JCU is inviting Year 9 students to come to campus for a day of discussion, activities, and scenario-based learning with social scientists and current social science students from a range of disciplines.

The day will include short ‘lightning talks’ from experts in a range of social science disciplines, interactive ‘beat the bot’ sessions to apply a critical lens to AI, and small group activities to facilitate inquiry skills, ethical thinking, and futures thinking about the impacts of AI on society and our environment.
