Global AI Ethics Consortium

AI has an immense power to accelerate innovation, but also entrench bias and inequality. Due to this, a systematic and scientific approach to studying practical ethical issues linked with AI and its diverse modern-day applications becomes crucial, particularly in cases that are complex and involve competing values and interests.

Independent academic research plays a fundamental role in designing and implementing frameworks and guidelines for the development and use of AI-based technologies. Academic expertise, drawn from across disciplines and geographies, is critical in helping guide governments, companies, NGOs and other actors navigate current uncertainty and arrive at sound and justifiable responses. Consequently, twenty experts from universities and research institutes across five continents have agreed to form a Global AI Ethics Consortium.
