Global Task Force
for Inclusive AI
The proliferation of widely accessible generative AI tools and the rapid development of powerful AI systems brings both opportunities for innovation and the potential for disruptive harm. AI must be developed inclusively, with the consultation of a diverse set of stakeholders and the broader public, to ensure technology can benefit all people and society.
About the Task Force
As a leading forum for addressing the most important and difficult decisions on the future of AI, Partnership on AI has launched the Global Task Force for Inclusive AI.
The Task Force is a body of leading practitioners and researchers across academia, civil society, industry, and policy focused on establishing a framework for ethical and inclusive public engagement practices in the field of AI. With the needs of AI developers in mind, the Task Force will apply their expertise to establish pragmatic approaches—including guidelines and resources—to better engage and integrate stakeholder feedback into the AI development process.
Policy bodies across the globe have recognized the importance of inclusive practices in developing responsible AI. The Task Force specifically responds to the call for the engagement of a diverse body of stakeholders and citizens in AI development in the White House Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights while also being intended to strengthen the delivery of global policy frameworks, such as the EU AI Act and NIST Risk Management Framework, by helping AI developers engage citizens in their implementation efforts. Through the creation of clear and practical guidelines and resources, the Global Task Force aims to learn from different stakeholder engagement approaches exercised by community advocates, governmental bodies, and other entities from around the world to ensure there is international consensus on how to better work with people from all walks of life most effectively and ethically.
What the Task Force Will Do
This initiative will drive partnerships between technology developer teams and community-based organizations as a way to identify and address algorithmic discrimination and other social harms that may result from the use of AI-enabled products, services, and systems.
Who Will Be Included in the Task Force
The Task Force will include global leaders in industry, civil society, and academia as well as experts in participatory engagement. As a global Task Force, PAI will engage multidisciplinary stakeholders around the world to ensure we build interoperable methods that engage citizens across borders.
How the Task Force Will Influence AI
Through the development of clear recommendations and community standards, the Task Force aims to enable AI developers to effectively scale participatory collaboration in the design and development of their projects. The multi-stakeholder approach of the Task Force will ultimately create avenues for AI development that center the perspectives and experiences of those historically marginalized.
