I personally got a lot from Frank’s lecture. I know something about Amnesty International (I am not an active member), but got now much better picture of the history and their vision.
I also found it very interesting how the organization has changed in time, partly because of the technological changes. We could even claim that AI use to be a globally networked grassroots movement for postcard “spamming“. Nowadays AI seems to have (also?) a strong role as a global media company providing reliable news about human rights and doing campaigns. BTW: look what do you get if you make a Google search with the single search term “campaigns“.
In a way AI use to be Web 2.0 before the web (networked communities, global user generated content, etc.). Now AI is very web 1.0. 🙂
