Dr. Florita Bell Griffin is an urban scientist exploring artificial intelligence’s profound impact on the transformation of work dynamics and society as a whole. Armed with advanced degrees in urban planning and regional science, she brings expertise in analyzing urban economies, infrastructure, and development trends.

Having witnessed the digital revolution firsthand, Dr. Griffin now directs her efforts towards educating the non-tech savvy about AI’s potential to reshape aspects of life in the upcoming decade. Her publications serve as a resource for individuals, thought leaders, and organizational think tanks seeking to comprehend AI’s transformative potential.

In addition to research, Dr. Griffin is the Creative Director at ARC Communication, LLC of Texas, creating accessible children’s media. She also produces 2D and 3D animated films using AI technology to vividly depict historical events.

Ultimately, with her diverse expertise, Dr. Griffin aims to shed light on how the African American church community can prepare for an AI-integrated future. She is particularly concerned that this community has access to information about how the proliferation of AI technology will affect it. The daughter of a Baptist pastor, her passion for researching the African American church community began decades ago when in 1993 her doctoral dissertation examined African American church nonprofits’ use of HUD 202 funding for the development of elderly housing.
