Humane AI Initiative

share

Humane Artificial Intelligence is an intercultural, intergenerational, and interdisciplinary initiative of the East-West Center (EWC) 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 was launched on September 2019 with an international symposium on The Challenges of Cultural and Ethical Diversity in Aligning Technology and Human Values hosted at the East-West Center. A second symposium will be hosted at the Center in Fall 2020 on The Challenges of Privacy and Social Cohesion.
