3AI: The Triple Partnership for Responsible AI

Three Year Research Project from the Research Council of Norway.

The Triple Partnership for Responsible AI (3AI)

The increasing use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) affects our lives in a number of ways. Facebook and Google use AI to curate the content that we consume through our newsfeed and our search results, and increasingly AI is used in areas that affect questions of life and death such as automated policing, autonomous weapons and distributing welfare benefits.

3AI, the Triple Partnership for Responsible AI, brings together research institutions in Norway, the U.S. and Brazil to investigate how AI can be made fair, accountable and transparent. To this end we will exchange best practices, legislative, managerial and educational resources to address the following questions:

1.     How can researchers, students and community organizers across the world work together to advance our understanding of the impact of AI across different groups of people, countries and settings?

2.     How can academic knowledge empower decision makers in the private and public sector to ensure AI advances the social good?

Through joint courses, workshops and conferences, the project will connect Norwegian, American and Brazilian scholars, industry representatives, and policy makers. The aim is to draw on globally diverse viewpoints, and practical experience to address the societal impacts of AI. We will in particular focus on solutions to better understand the ethical implications of AI, and work towards sustainable implementations of it.

The three partner institutions are the Nordic Centre for Internet and Society at BI Norwegian Business School (NCIS), the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard (BKC) and the Institute for Technology and Society in Rio de Janeiro (ITS).
