So, I'm nowhere near done but I've been honestly reading and collecting valuable info on my own to start. For example, I've been reading a book on AI ethics published by MIT press. Here are some examples of notes I've been collecting:
One of my friends studies at Dartmouth and I've been collecting value from some of the resources he sent me on this topic:
Here are some other notes / resources I've been collecting so far to get a baseline understandingL https://medium.com/hackernoon/the-decision-makers-guide-to-starting-ai-72ee0d7044df https://www.scribd.com/document/476272088/Guide-to-Responsible-Tech-How-to-Get-Involved-Build-a-Better-Tech-Future
and of course, courtesy of Wesley: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Z1G9sNwx_4MCYbZ8Lt4TYFYiGgfV-IFXYMmu5GRwr7g/edit I was under the impression that I would work on creating the outline and a more structured plan with my mentor but I guess it didn't turn out that way — which is why it'll take me longer since I no longer have his support here. ☹️
What did you learn about yourself from this project?
I'm deeply curious about AI, I just learned more about how many more cool things there are to learn about this - AND that I should honestly just imagine that if someone who you're working with becomes unresponsive after 2 days, you're on your own and shouldn't wait
Did you spark a new interest? Perhaps you realized that you didn't like this field after all. Just tell us what you discovered about yourself through this project!
What did you learn academically from this project?
Not enough yet to say that it's substantial - I'm going to need to do a deeper dive in.
Take the skills you aligned to this project and show us how you applied them. Was there anything else you learned along the way?
What advice would you give to someone starting a similar project?
Was there a particularly helpful book, website, or resource? Or, perhaps you realized the scope of the project was too large because of an unforeseen constraint. Whatever the advice, give it here!
Definitely check out MIT Essential Press books if you're looking for an intro to a scientific topic. Also, create a plan for yourself by just assuming that you'll be working on it by yourself, even if it's with other people.

🌹What did you enjoy most about this project? 🥀What didn't go well in this project? 🌱What will you do differently next time?
🌹: Learning about the scientifiic angle of AI ethics from my book so far
🥀: Mentor unresponsive, ambiguity, delay, etc.
🌱: create a plan for myself by just assuming that I'll be working on it by myself, even if it's with other people.
What advice or feedback do you have for the Sora team?
Was there anything particularly cumbersome or challenging this go-around? Any ideas to make projects run smoother for new students?
Being more honest w. commitment? IDK, would've appreciated that. Also, 3 weeks is better than 2 weeks imo.
