IBM and Meta Unveil AI Alliance for Open and Responsible AI
IBM and Meta Join Forces with 50+ Global Tech Companies to Establish AI Alliance, Aiming to Cultivate an Inclusive Community for Accelerating Responsible AI Innovation with Emphasis on Scientific Rigour, Trust, Safety, Security, Diversity, and Economic Competitiveness. "This is a pivotal moment in defining the future of AI. IBM is proud to partner with like-minded organizations through the AI Alliance to ensure this open ecosystem drives an innovative AI agenda underpinned by safety, accountability and scientific rigour,” said Arvind Krishna, IBM Chairman and CEO.
The AI Alliance is set to create and implement benchmarks, evaluation standards, tools, and resources to support the responsible advancement and utilization of AI systems on a worldwide level. This initiative includes establishing a curated catalog of safety, security, and trust tools. The primary objective is to stimulate a thriving ecosystem for AI hardware accelerators, encouraging increased contributions and adoption of critical enabling software technology.
The AI Alliance will launch initiatives that encourage open development of AI in safe and beneficial ways, host events to explore AI use cases and showcase how Alliance members are using open technology in AI responsibly and for good. The other participants in the AI Alliance are AMD, CERN, Cornell University, Dell Technologies, EPFL, ETH, Imperial College London, Intel, Linux Foundation, NASA, NSF, Oracle, Partnership on AI, Red Hat, Sony Group and Stability AI, among others.
Nick Clegg, President, Global Affairs of Meta, added that the AI Alliance brings together researchers, developers and companies to share tools and knowledge that can help us all make progress whether models are shared openly or not. According to Lisa Su, AMD CEO and Chair, by embracing open standards and transparency across all aspects of the rapidly developing AI ecosystem, “we can help ensure the transformational benefits of responsible AI are broadly available”.
