Our Artificial Intelligence, Morality, and Sentience (AIMS) survey primarily measures the social and moral perception of different types of artificial intelligences (AIs), particularly sentient AI, among US residents. We conducted the first iteration of the survey in 2021, and we intend to run the survey periodically to track changes over time. On this page you can find links to our AIMS reports and data.

Sentience Institute participates in the Center for Open Science's Open Data badge program. We grant the Open Data badge based on two criteria: the published article (1) provides the URL, DOI, or other permanent path for accessing the data in a public, open access repository, and (2) contains sufficient information for an independent researcher to reproduce the reported results, though we do not conduct a full replication ourselves.
