Abstract. This paper focuses on how major national strategies call attention to the human dimensions of artificial intelligence (AI). All intelligent technologies using AI are constructed for people as either active users or as relatively passive target persons. Thus, human properties and human research should have an important role in developing future AI systems. In these development strategies, it is interesting to pay attention to the underlying intuitive assumptions and tacit commitments. This issue is especially interesting when we think about what governmental working groups say about people and their changing lives in their strategies. The traditional stances adopted in writing national strategies, in which technology development is seen as a purely technical issue, should be challenged. In the end, by putting human dimensions aside, societies cannot prepare themselves for the transformation risks. It is also probable that this stance makes communication between technical and human research more difficult. Keywords: AI-strategies · Human factors · Social transformation ...
