Some of the biggest names in AI have launched a group aimed at supporting the open innovation of safe AI systems.
Dubbed the AI Alliance, the group wants to foster an open community that’ll enable developers to research AI responsibly.
Arvind Krishna, IBM chair and CEO said: "The progress we continue to witness in AI is a testament to open innovation and collaboration across communities of creators, scientists, academics and business leaders.”
Among those supporting the group are chipmaking giants AMD and Intel, universities like Cornell and Yale as well as open-source outlets behind popular AI tools and benchmarks including Hugging Face, LangChain and MLCommons.
The group plans to pool resources and knowledge to address AI safety concerns. The AI Alliance will also launch a catalog of vetted multimodal, multilingual tools that are safe and secure. They will also move to develop benchmarks and standards to test AI system safety.
The Alliance will begin by forming working groups spanning major related topics, as well as a governing board and technical oversight committee.
The group wants to partner with governments, non-profits and civil society organizations on initiatives related to responsible AI.
Nick Clegg, president for global affairs at Meta said: “We believe it’s better when AI is developed openly – more people can access the benefits, build innovative products and work on safety.”
