Other AI Ethics Groups

AI-Ethics.com is dedicated to working with interdisciplinary teams to reconcile the divergent views about AI regulation, identify the key challenges and create effective solutions. We will work with all groups to better identify the challenges and help create solutions. We have identified the following organizations as leaders in the field of AI Ethics. They represent both sides of the debate and are not listed by ranking or anything like that. Please let us know of any good groups that we may have missed, although we think this list is fairly complete as of Summer 2017.

Although coincidentally last in our discovery list, the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, called AI2, is by no means last in anyone’s ranking. It was founded by the legendary Paul G. Allen in 2014 and is run by Professor Oren Etzioni. The Mission of AI2 is to contribute to humanity through high-impact AI research and engineering. Paul Allen is the now billionaire who co-founded Microsoft with Bill Gates in 1975 instead of completing college. Paul and Bill have changed a lot since their early hacker days, but Paul is still  into computers and funding advanced research. Yes, that’s Paul and Bill below left in 1981. Believe it or not, Gates was 26 years old when the photo was taken. They recreated the photo in 2013 with the same computers. We wonder if today’s facial recognition AI could tell that these are the same people?
