Four years ago, we (Tom Dietterich and Sabine Hauert) met at AAAI and started a discussion about how we could improve public understanding of artificial intelligence. Tom was leading AAAI at the time, and I had just published an article in Science on how researchers could engage in the public discussion about AI. From this conversation, we set out to build AIhub.org, a non-profit dedicated to connecting the AI community to the public.
