Welcome: We are MKAI

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.

What we believe in

1. Human-centric AI

We believe that consumers have the right to know about the risks they are exposed to from the use of data and autonomous decisions.

2. Responsible AI

We believe that organisations globally must recognise the need for Responsible AI. Through security, monitoring, and verification. Transparent, explainable and provable AI models and systems that are ethical, understandable and legal. Organisations should routinely test for bias in data, models and human use of algorithms.

3. Human in the loop

We believe that AI is made more effective, fairer and safer through human input. Beyond this, we believe in the need for self-regulation of frontier technologies through external governance, oversight and ethical boards.

4. Open standards

We believe that our collective ability to solve major global issues such as climate change, inequality, pandemics and conflict is directly influenced by the degree of open collaboration between citizens, regulators, and businesses. We believe in open data, data disclosure and creating platforms of trust.

5. Co-creation

We believe in decentralisation of data and innovation, openness with ideas and problem-solving. We all share one planet and work needs to be done to iterate and evolve our companies and economies to allow sustainable growth and circular supply chains. This needs all of us to cooperate and collaborate.
