CHRS Joins Partnership on AI

The Center for Human Rights Science has joined the Partnership on AI to Benefit People and Society (PAI), which was established to study and formulate best practices on AI technologies, to advance the public’s understanding of AI, and to serve as an open platform for discussion and engagement about AI and its influences on people and society.

By gathering the leading companies, organizations, and people differently affected by artificial intelligence, PAI establishes a common ground between entities which otherwise may not have cause to work together – and in so doing – serves as a uniting force for good in the AI ecosystem. There are currently 100 partners in 13 countries, of which 19 are affiliated with academic institutions.

In a written statement, CHRS Director Jay Aronson said: "At the Center for Human Rights Science, we are passionate about ensuring that artificial intelligence is used in service of humanity and does not make existing social inequalities worse. By joining the Partnership on AI, we are better equipped to fulfill our mission in engaging interdisciplinary collaboration between technical experts in the field of artificial intelligence and human rights advocacy organizations.”
