Investing in AI for Good

  • “We believe that more targeted, sustained investments in AI for social impact (sometimes called “AI for good”)—rather than multiple, short-term grants across a variety of areas—are important for two reasons.
  • First, AI often has large upfront costs and low ongoing or marginal costs. AI systems can be hard to design and operationalize, and they require an array of potentially costly resources
  • Another reason why targeted, sustained funding is important is because any single point of failure—lack of training data, misunderstanding users’ needs, biased results, technology poorly designed for unreliable Internet—can hobble a promising AI-for-good product.”
