IBM and Meta, formerly Facebook, have launched the AI Alliance with over 50 founding members and with the aim of creating guidelines and opportunities for open, safe and responsible artificial intelligence development.

With regard to hardware providers while AMD and Intel are listed on the membership front Nvidia is notable by its absence. Also absent from founder member listing are Google, Amazon and Microsoft.

The alliance embraces AI technology developers, academics and AI adopters and government organizations and includes AMD, Cerebras, Dell Technologies, Hugging Face, Intel, Linux Foundation, Oracle, Red Hat, Sony Group amongst its founding members

IBM said that the AI Alliance would foster collaboration and information sharing to support faster and more inclusive innovation. This would also help identify specific risks and mitigate those risks before putting a product into the world, IBM said.

“The AI Alliance is action-oriented and decidedly international, designed to create opportunities everywhere through a diverse range of institutions that can shape the evolution of AI in ways that better reflect the needs and the complexity of our societies,” IBM said.

The AI Alliance plans to start or enhance projects covering: benchmarking, standards, AI regulation, tools including those for safety, security and trust, models with diverse modalities, AI hardware accelerator ecosystem, education and training. This will be done by the formation of a member-driven working groups reporting to a governing board and technical oversight committee, IBM said.
