The development of artificial intelligence and security concerns in this field are constantly growing, while regulation is minimal. The latest industrial solution to this problem comes thanks to companies IBM a Metawhich announced founding of the Alliance for Artificial Intelligence. Its mission is focused on open community support and enabling developers and researchers accelerate important innovations in the field of artificial intelligence and at the same time ensure credibility, safety, diversity and economic competitiveness.

These goals will also include efforts to expanding the number of AI models with open source code (that is, those that have public source code), which is the opposite of the current trend of private models by companies such as OpenAI and Google.

Open-sourcing at the same time, it is a key pillar of the Alliance for Artificial Intelligence. “We believe it’s better when AI is developed openly – more people can access its benefits, create innovative products and work on security,” Nick Clegg, Meta’s president of global affairs, said in a statement. “The Alliance for Artificial Intelligence brings together researchers, developers and companies to share tools and knowledge that can help us all make progress, whether models are shared openly or not. We look forward to working with partners to advance the latest in AI and help everyone build the field responsibly.”

In its announcement, the Alliance for Artificial Intelligence said that the will build for all projects with specific goalssuch as developing benchmarks for ensuring responsible creation of AI systems. This step should include creating a catalog of proven tools and advocating that developers use them.

Other initiatives of the new alliance also include focus on security and transparencyinclusive creating educational resourceswhich will inform the public and policy makers about aspects of AI, or launching initiatives and events that will highlight ways to develop AI safely.

IBM and Meta are joined by more than 50 organizations and educational institutions worldwide, for example Intel, NASA, Cleveland Clinic whether Yale University. Notably, OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT, is not one of the founding members.
