Our economic future is too important to leave to chance.
AI has the potential to radically disrupt people’s economic lives in both positive and negative ways. It remains to be determined which of these we’ll see more of. In the best scenario, AI could widely enrich humanity, equitably equipping people with the time, resources, and tools to pursue the goals that matter most to them.
Our current moment serves as a profound opportunity — one that we will miss if we don’t act now. To achieve a better future with AI, we must put in the work today.
In medicine and other fields, new innovations are put through rigorous testing to ensure they are fit for purpose. The AI community, however, has no established practice for assessing the impact of AI systems on inequality or job quality. Without one, it remains difficult to ensure AI deployments are bringing us closer to the economic future we want to live in.
You can help guide AI’s impact on jobs
AI developers, AI users, policymakers, labor organizations, and workers can all help steer AI so its economic benefits are shared by all. Using Partnership on AI’s (PAI) Shared Prosperity Guidelines, these stakeholders can minimize the chance that individual AI systems worsen shared prosperity-relevant outcomes.
The Shared Prosperity Guidelines can be used by following a guided, three-step process.
Partnership on AI needs your help to refine, test, and drive adoption of the Guidelines for AI and Shared Prosperity.
