A majority of Mozilla’s movement building work is focused on developing Trustworthy AI. We are building towards a future where artificial intelligence is helpful, rather than harmful. Our commitment to this future can be seen throughout our work, from our products to our programming at MozFest.
Mozilla supports diverse communities that develop Trustworthy AI innovations in the following ways:
- Convening and mobilizing AI builders to collaborate on cutting-edge projects in our ‘Building Trustworthy AI working group’,
- Working with global partners to promote ethical computing in universities and colleges through our ‘Responsible Computer Science program’, and
- Inviting historically excluded voices to contribute language data to help make voice technology more accessible in Kiswahili (and other underrepresented languages) through the ‘Kiswahili Project with Common Voice.’
Each of these initiatives are championed by several women who serve as a driving force for their progress.
On May 25, Mozilla sponsored Rethink AI: Ethical AI Tech and Tools Summit and was invited by the hosts Women in AI ethics to engage a community of curious minds about the work Mozilla is doing to promote tools and technology that enable Trustworthy AI.
“We need to have less magical thinking around AI. We should start treating AI [more] like a technology and less like magic. ”
The goal of the event was to connect with others around the globe who are daring to rethink and reimagine AI as a force for good and not merely as means for maximizing power and wealth for a privileged few.
