Partnership on AI


Five tech giants including Google and its DeepMind subsidiary, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon and IBM have formed Partnership on AI, a coalition dedicated to highlighting the best practices and ethical research in the field of AI (artificial intelligence).

The coalition stated that it "foresees great societal benefits and opportunities ahead, but we also understand that as with every new technology there will be concerns and confusion associated with new applications and competencies, and we look forward to working together on these important issues."

"We intend to come together to address these important issues, including ethics, safety, transparency, privacy, biases, and fairness.”

Partnership on AI promises to share the best practices to ensure positive society impact, and to also do researches in the AI field to approach sectors like healthcare and transportation. It also wants to offer resources to educational materials and forums where discussion about the development of AI happens.
