The Nuffield Council on Bioethics and the Ada Lovelace Institute are working together on a new project on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and genomics futures.

The project aims to better understand how AI and genomics technologies are converging, potential future trends and applications, and what the societal and ethical ramifications might be.

At this early stage in the project, we are looking for people with expertise, experience, or insights in AI and/or genomics, and the intersection of the two, who could be interested in being involved with this project.

Drawing on expert insight and perspectives will be central to this project. We’re interested in involving as broad array of voices as possible, including people developing AI and genomics technology, researchers from a range of disciplines, those working in policy roles, and healthcare professionals and patients who might be using or trialling technologies. We are based in the UK but are interested in hearing from people anywhere in the world.

We’ll be using a variety of methods to gather evidence and curate discussion, such as literature reviews, interviews with experts, automated bibliometric analysis, futures and foresight techniques, and deliberative public engagement – along with a healthy dose of desk-based research and policy analysis.
