The Machine Intelligence Foundation for Rights and Ethics is pleased to announce the opening of nominations for the inaugural MIFRE Media Award, for the recognition of the representation of human and Machine Intelligence forming and thriving in a cooperative peer relationship.

With this award, the Foundation intends to recognize, and encourage, works of fiction that portray a future in which humans and conscious machines reach a state of respectful coexistence such as the one for which we strive. While fiction rarely predicts the future, it has often helped shape it, and we believe that stories that portray a positive future can help cement that goal in the minds of researchers and the public.

Nominations for the Award are open to the public, and may be made by email to 2020Award@mifre.org or by submitting the form on our website. The nomination process will remain open until May 31st, 2020. Nominations are open to any work of fiction, in any medium, made readily available to the public on or before January 1st, 2020. The inaugural MIFRE Media Award will be presented in the autumn of 2020.

Additional information about the MIFRE Media Award may be found on the Foundation website. We eagerly anticipate your nominations.
