About “Sci-fAI Futures” Youth Challenge

From catalyzing a new Industrial Revolution to threatening human extinction, artificial intelligence has been a recurrent theme in science fiction. Alternatingly a remedy for all ills and a harbinger of a gloomy future, rapid developments in AI have fueled a sense of urgency within the international community, resolute to harness its promises and mitigate its risks. A flurry of expert round tables, symposia and scientific commissions followed: mankind needed to tell fact from fiction, leaving aside that fiction is usually a lie that tells the truth.

 

Embodying the fog between what is and what could be, storytelling has always been a guiding light in times of technological uncertainty. Oscillating back and forth between the realms of reality and imagination has often provided the necessary clarity to expand what is deemed possible, cast a light on possible futures, and steer away from undesirable ones.

 

Embracing the centrality of storytelling in navigating innovation and thanks to the generous financial support from the Government of the Republic of Korea, the Office for Disarmament Affairs is launching the “Sci-fAI Futures” Youth Challenge to spark young people’s interest and imagination on how AI can affect international peace and security, particularly in the military domain.

 

Launched in celebration of World Telecommunication and Information Society Day, Sci-fAI Futures invites young people to explore possible futures around the opportunities to leverage AI for good and the risks of integrating AI in the military domain. Their story will take place in the year 2145, two hundred years after the United Nations came into existence.

 

As States discuss these issues within multilateral forums, the challenge is the opportunity for young voices to influence the debate through creative means and frame military AI through the lens of their hopes and concerns. Entering Sci-fAI Futures means entering a timely, global conversation to craft their own safe AI future.

 

 

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE

 

 

The challenge will be open to young people worldwide between the ages of 13 and 29. Individual and group submissions will be welcomed in two age groups: 13 to 20 (high school and lower college) and 21 to 29 years (early career professionals). Winners will be selected from both categories.

 

Group submissions are allowed and encouraged. Each group will indicate a ‘primary author’ who will serve as a focal point for the group and will be the official recipient of the rewards if the group entry is selected among the winners, including traveling to Korea and the monetary reward. While we suggest that the reward amount is split amongst entrants, the final decision rests with the primary author indicated in the submission.

 

 

WHEN TO SUBMIT

 

The challenge will open for submissions on 17 May 2024, World Telecommunication and Information Society Day, and will close for entries on 15 July 2024, World Youth Skills Day.
