Artificial Intelligence, an interdisciplinary field of research and a broad suite of technologies aiming to imitate human intelligence, is set out to bring sweeping changes to human societies. Through the mirror of AI, knowledge and value claims about what humans and societies are, and how humans and societies should evolve are being generated by a variety of stakeholders. While history has shown that techno-scientific development trajectories are not deterministic but subject to the shaping of social factors and shape socio-political orders in the world, AI provides a vantage point to study these mutual shaping processes. By analyzing AI governance policy documents from three nations with major AI ambitions through the conceptual lenses of “socio-technical imaginaries” and “co-production,” the paper presented at this research colloquium maps the distinct and yet intersecting paths planned by policymakers in the making of epistemic, moral and political orders with AI.

About This Series
The LMRG Colloquium is a venue for members and guests of the Lise Meitner Research Group, "China in the Global System of Science," to share work in progress on an ongoing basis. It is an opportunity to raise questions, discuss methodological challenges, or get feedback on preliminary conclusions. We aim to create a supportive atmosphere that combines rigorous criticism with genuine curiosity.
