Humane AI Initiative


The East-West Center (EWC) is embarking on an intercultural, intergenerational, and interdisciplinary initiative to engage the societal challenges and opportunities that are emerging with advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, machine learning and big data. The purposes of the initiative are: to establish an ongoing forum for exploring differences in understanding the goal of aligning artificial intelligence with human values and societal wellbeing; to foster globally-shared commitments to equitable and humane artificial intelligence; and, to engage emerging perspectives on the evolving interplay of people, artificial intelligence, and related technologies.

The Humane AI Initiative will be launched in fall 2019 with an international symposium hosted at the East-West Center.
