I will present an update on the One Hundred Year Study on AI. I will describe the background and status of the project, including the roots of the effort in earlier experiences with the 2008-09 AAAI Panel on Long-Term AI Futures that culminated in the AAAI Asilomar meeting. I will reflect about several directions for investigation, highlighting opportunities for reflection and investment in proactive research, monitoring, and guidance.
