IBM, Facebook, Google, Amazon and Microsoft - a partnership on AI
Partnership on AI - to benefit people and society have started with the belief that artificial intelligence has a great potential of raising the quality of people's lives and create a powerful and positive impact on important global challenges, such as: food, health, education in poor countries, climate change.
OpenAI’s co-founder and CTO, Greg Brockman declared for TheGuardian that these companies are in the process of inviting many others different research labs and groups to join the partnership.
"This group is a huge step forward, breaking down barriers for AI teams to share best practices, research ways to maximise societal benefits and tackle ethical concerns, and make it easier for those in other fields to engage with everyone’s work. We’re really proud of how this has come together, and we’re looking forward to working with everyone inside and outside the Partnership on Artificial Intelligence to make sure AI has the broad and transformative impact we all want to see." (OpenAI’s co-founder and CTO, Greg Brockman)


IBM’s Francesca Rossi added:

“This partnership will provide consumer and industrial users of cognitive systems a vital voice in the advancement of the defining technology of this century – one that will foster collaboration between people and machines to solve some of the world’s most enduring problems – in a way that is both trustworthy and beneficial.” (Source TheGuardian).

 Yann LeCun, Facebook’s director of AI research said:

“By openly collaborating with our peers and sharing findings, we aim to push new boundaries every day, not only within Facebook, but across the entire research community.” (Source TheGuardian).
