The AI Alliance: Advocating for an Open Scientific Approach to Artificial Intelligence Development

The AI Alliance, a newly launched group led by Meta, the parent company of Facebook, and IBM, is championing an “open scientific” approach to the development of artificial intelligence (AI). Unlike competitors such as Google, Microsoft, and OpenAI, this alliance favors an approach that promotes broad access to foundational AI technology.

The two sides, open and closed, do not agree on whether AI should be built in a way that allows for widespread access to the underlying technology. Security is at the center of the debate, as well as the question of who will benefit from advances in AI.

Advocates of the open approach support a “non-proprietary and open” approach, according to Darío Gil, Vice President of IBM, who heads its research division. “So, it’s not like something that’s closed in a barrel and nobody knows what’s inside.”

The AI Alliance, spearheaded by IBM and Meta, includes Dell, Sony, chip manufacturers AMD and Intel, as well as several AI-focused universities and startups. The group aims to express the belief that the future of AI will be built on open scientific exchange of ideas and open innovation, including open-source and open technologies.

The alliance is likely to lobby regulators to ensure that new legislations work in their favor.

It’s worth mentioning that earlier this fall, Meta’s Chief AI Scientist, Yann LeCun, criticized OpenAI, Google, and startup Anthropic for what he described as “massive corporate lobbying” to write rules that favor their high-performance AI models and concentrate their power over technology development. These three companies, along with key partner OpenAI and Microsoft, have formed their own industry group called the Frontier Model Forum…
