Dartmouth has joined more than 50 other industry leaders, government entities, research institutions, and higher education institutions as a founding member of the newly-formed AI Alliance. This global alliance, led by companies IBM and Meta, is focused on promoting an open community and enabling developers and researchers to accelerate responsible innovation in artificial intelligence (AI) while ensuring scientific rigor, trust, security, diversity, and economic competitiveness. The goals of the alliance include developing multiple options for AI technology in the open market that have been tested for fairness and developed responsibly. These technologies could then be adopted and used by different companies in ways that enhance the way we work and live.
By joining the alliance, Dartmouth deepens its commitment to ethical AI development, open science, and the formation of strategic partnerships that will transfer research and discoveries from Dartmouth to a global level. Dartmouth researchers continue the institutional legacy as the birthplace of AI, studying and applying AI technology in various fields.
The Center for Precision Health and AI, launched this year, is unique among its counterparts in fostering collaboration between AI scientists and physicians to personalize treatment using unique biomedical patient data while identifying strategies for the safe and ethical implementation of AI in healthcare.
The university also applies AI in digital health therapy and diagnosis, medical education and policy enforcement, as well as in efforts to eliminate bias in large language models and even utilizing AI to understand dinosaur extinction.
The AI Alliance will begin its work by forming working groups, selecting a board of directors and technical oversight committee, and establishing standards and guidelines for the project. Members will collaborate on AI development projects, events, and initiatives.
