New Partners Bring Global Perspectives on AI Governance to Partnership on AI


Partnership on AI (PAI) is proud to welcome Data Economy Policy Hub (DepHUB), Fairly AI, and The Future Society to our Partner community. The three organizations, based in Canada, Europe, South Africa, and the United States, are the latest additions to PAI’s global community of 100+ Partner organizations. They bring unique and important perspectives on responsible AI development, including governance.

“AI tools and technologies are more accessible and popular than ever, making Partnership on AI’s mission of bringing diverse stakeholders together to advance responsible solutions even more urgent,” said Rebecca Finlay, CEO of Partnership on AI. “I welcome the experience and perspective that Data Economy Policy Hub, Fairly AI, and The Future Society bring to our community at this important time.”

Remarks from New Partners

“The DepHUB is committed to contributing to multidisciplinary public interest research and advocating for collective African voices, values, interests, visions, concerns, and expectations that should become part of the increasingly global discussion on responsible AI (RAI) governance,” said Shamira Ahmed, Founder and Executive Director at the Data Economy Policy Hub. “As a member of the global PAI community, we look forward to learning and collaborating with other organizations, researchers, and stakeholders to promote RAI practices and to address the complex challenges that arise from AI development and deployment in our interdependent global systems.”

“The true potential of AI can only be realized when we ensure it has been developed and deployed responsibly,” said David Van Bruwaene, Co-founder and CEO at Fairly AI. “We’re focused on accelerating responsible AI innovation and our partnership allows us to safeguard the use of AI systems for the betterment of society without minimizing innovation.”

“The team at The Future Society looks forward to working with PAI toward our shared objectives for better AI policies and improved industry practices,” said Nicolas Miailhe, Founder and President at The Future Society. “Given the growing capabilities of AI systems and their increasing proliferation across societies, this couldn’t be better timing for coordination and collaboration.”
