We seek to gather a true ecosystem to democratize access to AI capabilities, to allow anyone, anywhere to benefit from the possibilities that AI can provide.
We are working to connect problem owners with the community of solvers, to collectively create solutions with AI. We aim to implement a framework for participation and cooperation to make using and benefiting from AI available to all.
AI will have the greatest impact when everyone can benefit from it.
Realizing the promise of AI requires engaging a much broader diversity of creators, and to focus on a wider range of tasks that respond to various global needs. We are committed to the idea that AI systems deployed across a range of communities should be designed with people whose perspectives reflect that diversity.
It is becoming clear that systemic barriers to entry must be fixed and technology be made available to the largest possible community of developers, entrepreneurs, users, and organizations, which will then identify and enable far broader applications in response to actual needs.
Join the journey and let’s solve the world's’ most pressing challenges with AI.
Participating in AI Commons means joining forces to unlock the potential of Artificial Intelligence to drive a new era of development, growth and productivity for all. It is a collective effort with multi-sectoral support from the entire ecosystem impacted by the advancement of AI practitioners and beneficiaries. Together we are pushing the boundaries of AI to solve real-world problems.
Join us in solving the world’s challenges. Start by letting us know you’re interested.
The AI Commons will officially launch at the beginning of 2019, with updates of the overall framework and structure. Participants and members will be able to join special events, working groups, and task forces to impact the building blocks.
