Apple and OpenAI are not part of the new organization.
Some of the biggest names in artificial intelligence (AI) research, including Google, Facebook, Amazon, IBM and Microsoft, have formed a new alliance called the Partnership on Artificial Intelligence to Benefit People and Society. The group plans to “conduct research, recommend best practices, and publish research under an open license in areas such as ethics, fairness and inclusivity; transparency, privacy, and interoperability; collaboration between people and AI systems; and the trustworthiness, reliability and robustness of the technology.”
But two large supporters of AI are noticeably absent: Apple and Elon Musk’s OpenAI research organization. The companies that are part of the partnership say that they plan to invite many other businesses and non-profits to join.
