The AI for Good Foundation collaborates with governments, policy groups, think tanks, and nonprofits to assist in developing AI policy frameworks for regional, national, and international governmental agencies.
Our Sustainable AI Policy program provides customized recommendations for responsible AI growth and utilization to the organizations and governments with whom we partner.
Our passion is to work with developing nations to design national AI policy frameworks by which they can meet the needs of their populace. Additionally, having a national AI policy in place gives developing nations the road map by which to navigate interests from multinational corporations and cross border collaborations.
By sharing our expertise in this format, we are able to further the UN Sustainable Development Goals, as well as demonstrate our ‘zero-footprint’ AI model.
By helping developing nations design a Sustainable AI Policy, we are equipping them with the tools to increase the communication capacity of their urban and rural communities while being economically competitive on the international stage.
