As our community begins the complex process of translating ethical technology principles into organizational practice, PAI is working to identify the information and resources we all need.

As AI technologies continue to evolve at a rapid pace, individuals, organizations, and governments around the world are recognizing the importance of thoughtful and responsible AI development and deployment. PAI is part of a broader community working towards developing ethical technology principles, addressing issues such as fairness, transparency, accountability, human rights, and safety, and strive to put them to use. Operationalizing these principles is a complex process in relatively early stages, and currently, the gap between intent and practice is large, while documentation on learnings from experience remains lacking.

To help fill this gap, the Partnership on AI has initiated “Closing Gaps in Responsible AI” – a multiphase, multi-stakeholder project aimed at surfacing the collective wisdom of the community to identify salient challenges and evaluate potential solutions. These insights can in turn inform and empower the changemakers, activists, and policymakers working to develop and manifest responsible AI.

The first phase of our project is the Closing Gaps Ideation Game – an interactive ideation exercise that solicits experiences and insights from the technology community in order to collectively surface challenges and evaluate solutions. [ . . . ]
