About the AAAS AI2 Initiative

The (AI)² initiative builds on AAAS’s long history as a pioneer in exploring the social, ethical, and legal implications and applications of emerging technologies. The initiative involves programs across our organization and operates in five key action areas: assessing attitudes towards technology in historically marginalized communities; developing a framework for the responsible application of AI; developing and disseminating recommendations to stakeholders through the AAAS Office of Government Relations; addressing the legal implications of AI and; building corporate infrastructure to support human rights organizations. To implement the latter of these action areas, AAAS engages, guides and incentivizes technology companies in their efforts to build public interest infrastructure that supports AI-based technologies for human rights.

Funding for the AI2 initiative is provided in part by Microsoft. The Ford Foundation has provided funding for the project on building corporate infrastructure to support human rights organizations.
