Facebook, Amazon, Google, Microsoft and IBM have created a new nonprofit to establish and emphasize best practices for the development of AI technology in partnership with academics and ethics experts. The group goes by the name ‘Partnership on Artificial Intelligence to Benefit People and Society’.
Each of the corporate members is expected to make financial and research contributions to the group, although details are not out yet. The nonprofit is also making efforts to get along with scientific community and intellectuals.
The nonprofit’s creation comes as tech companies race to incorporate AI into products ranging from personal assistants to photo apps. Yet, even the brightest minds have raised concerns about the impact of AI on humanity.
