Impact of GenAI on Social and Individual Well-being


At the AAAI Spring Symposium 2024, we explore the important challenges facing Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) concerning both social structures and individual welfare. Our discussion revolves around two perspectives. Individual Impact of GenAI on Well-being: This perspective focuses on the design of AI systems with keen consideration for individual well-being. It seeks to understand how digital experiences influence emotions and the quality of life at a personal level. By examining the effects of AI technologies on individuals, we aim to tailor solutions to enhance personal welfare and fulfillment. Social Impact of GenAI on Well-being: Here, emphasis shifts to the broader societal implications of GenAI. We strive for decisions and implementations that foster fairness and benefit all members of society. This perspective acknowledges the interconnectedness of individuals within social structures and seeks to ensure that GenAI advancements positively contribute to collective well-being. In this paper, we provide an overview of the motivations driving our exploration, elucidate key terms essential for understanding the discourse, outline the primary areas of focus of our symposium, and pose research inquiries that will guide our discussions. Through this comprehensive approach, we aim to address the multifaceted challenges and opportunities presented by GenAI in promoting both social and individual well-being.
