AI for Good Global Investment Fund will invest in the future of AI for Good with financial resources, talent, and a mandate for culture change.

We are investing in the future of AI for Good with financial resources, talent, and a mandate for changing culture through transparency, accountability, and a global public campaign. Any individual or entity making profit on ML/AI/Data+Algorithms allocate 2-3% of profits or its equivalents to the fund. Anyone (ranging from an individual with a great idea to a startup to a for-profit company, can apply for funds so long as the idea aligns with one of the 17 SDGs. A multistakeholder board of directors comprised of impacted populations and public interest lawyers, will govern this new 501c3 entity.

 

Three initiatives of the fund :

  • Public Media Campaign: the Oscars of AI for Good

  • Cultivating talent: a public interest technologist curriculum

  • Public tracker: tracking performance of the fund and the AI industry.
