Big players launch The AI Alliance
More than 50 founding members and collaborators share a common goal of supporting open innovation and open science in AI.
With concerns about the inappropriate use of artificial intelligence (AI), a group of those pursuing the use of the technology have come together to launch The AI Alliance. It is comprised of leading organizations across industry, start-ups, academia, research, and government who share a common goal of supporting open innovation and open science in AI.
The AI Alliance will begin its work with the formation of member-driven working groups across all major topical areas listed above. The Alliance will also establish a governing board and technical oversight committee dedicated to advancing the above project areas, as well as establishing overall project standards and guidelines.
Two key players – Meta and IBM – spurred on the initiative that includes more than 50 founding members and collaborators. They include:
- Other industry giants (AMD, Dell Technologies, Intel, Oracle, Red Hat, and Sony Group);
- Universities around the world (Cornell; Dartmouth; Hebrew University of Jerusalem; Imperial College London; New York University; Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; University of California Berkeley College of Computing, Data Science, and Society; University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign; The University of Notre Dame; The University of Texas at Austin; The University of Tokyo; and Yale University); and
- Federal agencies (National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the National Science Foundation).
