We are all part of this hyper-connected, data-driven world. Artificial Intelligence takes us beyond human cognitive limits, offering opportunities to solve our greatest challenges and herald a new era for life on earth, but our excitement is tempered by the use of AI for power, control and manipulation.
Motivated by the Open Ethics manifesto, we believe that a truly consumer-centric approach to AI is about making risks visible and understandable. AI may not always be explainable, but consumers have the right to know what risks they are being exposed to. Whilst governments need to play their role by regulating critical areas of AI application, most crucially we need ways to embed trust into AI development and transparency into corporate cultures across the world.
We need better, more inclusive conversations. We need AI fluency and we need multidisciplinary voices representing people from all walks of life and all corners of the globe to talk openly and freely about responsible, human-centric AI.
We are MKAI and it is our mission to facilitate these conversations and to shape and share the potential of AI.
