Artificial Intelligence and You: The Social and Human Dimensions of AI

Missouri S&T Center for Science, Technology, and Society

April 25-27, 2024

Rolla, Missouri


The Missouri S&T Center for Science, Technology and Society invites proposals for paper presentations, poster sessions, and panel discussions for the Spring 2024 conference, Artificial Intelligence and You: The Social and Human Dimensions of AI


With the rise of the use of generative AI in most facets of human life, scholars, practitioners, and the general public should pause frequently to ask questions about the technologies that humans are rapidly allowing to have more and more agency over our daily lives. 


What is AI? What does it mean to be artificial? How is intelligence created? What are the advantages and disadvantages  when data gathered by artificial intelligence impacts human decision-making in areas such as healthcare, personal security, or consumerism? What do you do when your smart device tells you to breathe or move or sleep and what does this suggest about the future of human agency? 


Abstracts should be 250 words or less and should deal with almost any theme(s) about AI, including, but not limited to:


Development of AI itself




Commodification of human data Developing models

Biomarkers and impacts on human behavior


Historical contexts

Social dimensions


The conference will be held on the campus of Missouri S&T in Rolla, Missouri. Thursday evening, April 25, Dr. Joy Lisi Rankin (NYU and the Center for Responsible AI), will present a keynote talk, with a welcome reception after. Friday all day and Saturday morning will comprise the paper, poster, and panel sessions. Students are particularly encouraged to participate.


Submit abstracts by March 1st, 2024  using this Google form by March 1. Be sure to include all the information requested. 

Papers will be 15 minutes long, with 5 minutes for questions. 

Panel proposers need to submit a panel abstract as well as the names/titles/abstracts of all the 15-minute papers in the panel (max of 4). The panel proposer will be responsible for communicating with the other panelists concerning acceptance and registration.
