Trustworthy AI is helpful — rather than harmful — to human beings. For us, this means two things: human agency is a core part of how AI is built and integrated and corporate accountability is real and enforced. AI impacts nearly every technology we interact with today, and how we approach AI determines how much privacy, safety, trust, transparency, and fairness we create for ourselves and one another online and off.
We think of AI Builders as people who create Trustworthy AI and machine learning (ML) products, like data scientists, developers, engineers, and product and project managers.
We think of Civil Society Actors as people outside government and industry working in their local and global communities through art, journalism, policy-making, research, scholarship, activism and technical literacy efforts, who care about the impact of artificial intelligence.
These communities will convene to promote Trustworthy AI through building better tools and technology and to think critically about how such tools and technology impact our local and global societies. They will proactively work together to reduce the harms of AI bias on underrepresented communities and improve the positive outcomes of AI for all.
