THE THREE PILLARS
In order to meet our mission, Aiforgood engages with three pillars, people, organizations, and governments. On the project side, we provide value to people through practical AI projects at the community level that have clear positive-impact outcomes. We provide value to organizations with market access, research & development opportunities, and social responsibility achievements for shareholders. We also work with local governments to help them determine AI strategies and projects that can improve the welfare of the people. We also engage with NGOs and local communities to assess their specific needs and find suitable technology partners that can help solve environmental and societal problems.
On the research side, we write papers and conduct studies that can help mitigate the negative impact of AI outcomes. We also enlist a growing team of researchers that want to work on these ethical issues. For organizations, especially tech companies, our research provides practical advice and insight for how to implement ethical principles into their development cycles. Governments can also benefit from the research as they attempt the difficult job of writing and implementing policy regulations.
Societies are unique groups with common interests. People have similar goals no matter where they live, including access to education, security, and equal opportunities. AI technologies and smart cities may promise a better life, but it is not a foregone conclusion for all. The people of Asia must have a mechanism for making sure they are heard when it comes to AI implementation. People also need access to tools and education to succeed in the coming future of work. Aiforgood Asia works with global and regional partners to help find funding and implement projects that can help communities, and we will connect them with companies to gain access to technologies, funding and education.

We engage with both large AI global players and emerging technology companies to achieve our goals. Leading AI companies have a responsibility to ensure that AI technologies are implemented ethically and not just to the benefit of the few at the top. This is not only a moral responsibility, but also good business. Including societal interests makes products better and companies more sustainable. Companies that are making a positive impact can also attract talent, giving them a competitive edge. We help these companies reach out to more customers that can utilize their platforms and technologies to do good. We also provide example frameworks and case studies on how to implement these technologies ethically. With our partner Ethical Intelligence we help emerging AI businesses by putting them in touch directly with experts and help them connect more with the larger ecosystem for AI ethics strategy and resources.
We invite AI organizations to join us in making the world a better, more equitable place. Contact us if you are interested in joining a project or getting in touch with an AI expert or AI ethicist.
The governments of Asia understand there are huge opportunities when it comes to AI, but also looming threats. For governments that don’t adapt quickly and put in place an AI development and investment strategy, the results could be disastrous. The stakes have never been higher and governments must do all they can to encourage AI research, attract talent, and train new workers. Through our research, we aim to help governments with their AI strategies, to not only create new opportunities but also support existing industries, such as food and energy production or electronics manufacturing. We can also assist governments in finding the right experts to provide knowledge and support for policy development. As helpful as AI can be, it also brings a host of ethical questions including privacy, transparency, equality, and employment. We also actively engage with the global community on the latest trends in using AI technologies for positive impact, providing engagement opportunities for governments and access to valuable knowledge and information.
We invite governments to get engaged and help Asia become a leader in ethical and responsible AI implementation. Contact us to find out how we can help.
