Announcing the Partnership on AI to Benefit People & Society

We believe that AI has the potential for transformative, positive impact in the world. Fulfilling this potential is not only dependent on the quality of the algorithms being engineered and the data they use, but on the level of public engagement, transparency, and ethical discussion that takes place around them.Its precisely because AI has the potential to have such a major positive impact on the world, that we believe its critical that we build new models of open collaboration and accountability around it. Thats why we at DeepMind are really proud to have worked with Amazon, Google, Facebook, IBM and Microsoft, to form a non-profit organisation that aims to create a forum for open discussion around the benefits and challenges of developing and applying cutting edge AI. Together, we hope to advance public understanding of AI and formulate best practices on some of the most important and challenging ethical issues in the field.Read More
