AI Impact Alliance

Organization founded in 2017. Mission: AI Impact Alliance aims to facilitate an ethical and responsible implementation of Artificial Intelligence, for the benefit of the greatest number of people. By bringing together experts from complementary sectors and disciplines, AI Impact Alliance studies the social, political, legal and ethical implications of AI and proposes solutions to achieve the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. AI Impact Alliance is a founding member of the International Observatory on the Ethical and Social Impact of AI.


AI Impact Alliance sponsors the conference AI on a Social Mission, a two day annual conference that brings together scientists and researchers, NPOs, large companies, start-ups, civil society, political decision-makers and innovators in the social sector. Together, they collaborate to advance the use of Artificial Intelligence for the benefit of the greatest number of people. The conference aims to facilitate the achievement of the 17 UN goals to support sustainable development, including through education, health, environment, employment, inclusion and training. 


Art Impact is a joint production between AI Impact Alliance and UKAI Projects, co-lead by Akoulina Connell, Jerrold McGrath and Valentine Goddard. Its mission is to engage artists in a national dialogue on artificial intelligence, to explore its potential with them and to amplify the role that artists play in the major changes that this technology offers. Starting in the summer of 2019, Art Impact will organize and facilitate nearly 20 workshops across Canada to generate shared resources, publish public recommendations and create a community of practice to address the impact of AI. Results will be revealed at the AI on a Social Mission Conference.
