Building Trustworthy AI Working Group

The collaborative spirit and innovation felt at the Mozilla Festival should be experienced all year round. The MozFest team is testing out a working group structure to support the technical community interested in building trustworthy AI and we want your help to collaboratively make building trustworthy AI a reality.

The working group will be exploring how we can help AI builders shift industry norms and build more trustworthy technology leading up to MozFest 2021. If you have ideas on how we can do this, or would like to help, this group is for you!

Our next meeting will be on Thursday, October 29th 14:00 UTC / 10:00 EDT / 16:00 CEST.

Purpose and Goals

The Building Trustworthy AI Working Group aims to help our technical community build more trustworthy AI. Our three main goals are: (1) clear trustworthy AI guidelines, (2) more diverse stakeholders involved in building AI, and (3) develop new technologies as building blocks for developers.

These three goals are taken from Mozilla’s Trustworthy AI Theory of Change (1.1, 1.3, & 2.1).

Group Activities


With this pilot group, we’re looking to facilitate 1-3 projects the group can work on leading up to MozFest (March 2021).

Projects should:

  • Be an experiment, convening or piece of work that has concrete actions towards one of the 3 outlined goals of the group.
  • Work openly and engage the broader MozFest community.
  • Be proposed and led by a member of the working group.

In our first two meetings (Aug, Sept), we’ll discuss possible projects and hear about relevant work form working group members. We’ll choose projects by October. From October to March, the group will work on the selected projects, culminating in MozFest.
