Build AI for a Better Future

We call on everyone to build, broadly deploy, and use AI to improve people’s lives and unlock a better future.

The purpose of AI is for humans to thrive much more than we could before.

AI is still early, but it’s on its way to improving everyone’s daily life: AI tutors to help anyone learn; AI translation tools to better connect the world; AI guided medical diagnoses to improve health care; AI-powered research to accelerate scientific discovery; AI assistants that you can talk with to help with everyday tasks.

While AI is unique in directly augmenting human thought, we expect its impact to be more akin to the printing press, the combustion engine, electricity, and the Internet. The balance of its good and bad impacts on humans will be shaped through the actions and thoughtfulness we as humans exercise. It is our collective responsibility to make choices that maximize AI’s benefits and mitigate the risks, for today and for future generations.

We all have something to contribute to shaping AI’s future, from those using it to create and learn, to those developing new products and services on top of the technology, to those using AI to pursue new solutions to some of humanity’s biggest challenges, to those sharing their hopes and concerns for the impact of AI on their lives. AI is for all of us, and all of us have a role to play in building AI to improve people’s lives.

We, the undersigned, already are experiencing the benefits from AI, and are committed to building AI that will contribute to a better future for humanity – please join us!
