The 14 new non-profit partners are the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, AI Forum of New Zealand, Center for Democracy & Technology, Centre for Internet and Society – India, Data & Society Research Institute, Digital Asia Hub, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Future of Humanity Institute, Future of Privacy Forum, Human Rights Watch, Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, UNICEF, Upturn, and the XPRIZE Foundation.

The Partnership added that it will shortly provide information on a number of new initiatives, including topic-specific and sector-specific Working Groups to research and formulate best practices, the creation of a Civil Society Fellowship programme aimed at assisting people at non-profits and NGOs who wish to collaborate on topics in AI and society, the formation of a cross-conference “AI, People, and Society” Best-Paper Award and the start of an AI Grand Challenges series to stimulate aspirational efforts in harnessing AI to address some of the most pressing long-term social and societal issues.
