Sign the Responsible AI Commitments


Artificial intelligence offers enormous promise and great risk. In this pivotal moment as new companies are funded and built, it is critical that startups incorporate responsible AI practices into product development from the outset.

The Responsible AI Commitments outline a Responsible AI program by distilling best practices and frameworks designed for early stage companies and their investors. You can download a PDF of the commitments here.

To help implement the Commitments, we created the Responsible AI Protocol in an unprecedented collaboration among operators, investors, civil society, and the public sector. The protocol includes clear action items, resources, and frameworks. Download it here.
