last modified May 17, 2018 09:40 AM

Cambridge Trustworthy Technologies was today announced as a launch partner for TrustFactory.ai, a new international, interdisciplinary, and multi-institutional initiative which aims to build and earn trust in AI.

TrustFactory.ai begins with the conviction that the more we do now to build well-earned trust, the better the prospects for beneficial AI. It aims to be the first global incubator for new ways of engineering and earning trust, in the AI arena. Our vision is to offer competitive small-grant funding to short, practical projects – innovative ideas for promoting well-earned trust, in any dimension relevant to AI impacts, anywhere in the world. 

The inspiration for TrustFactory.ai is the Trust in AI Track at the UN AI for Good Summit 2018. The Track's nine proposals offer a small and diverse sample of the many kinds of projects that TrustFactory.ai could launch. Our goal is to open the model of the Trust in AI Track to brilliant proposals from all over the world – to open-source the challenge of engineering and earning trust for AI for Good.
