Facebook on Sunday said that it will create an independent institute for AI and help learn about Artificial Intelligence. And the initial grant is set to be $7.5 billion. Because of the popularity of AI, it was only a matter of time that this happened. It will explore issues affecting its use and impact.
In collaboration with the Technical University of Munich, the institute looks to help advance the growing field of AI. It aims at addressing its use and impact such as safety, fairness and transparency. Now it’s easier than ever to learn about Artificial Intelligence.
The university will also benefit from Germany’s position at the forefront of the Ethical frameworks for AI. As said by a head director at Facebook, the institute focuses on evidence based research. And aims at providing insight and guidance for society, industry, legislators and decision makers across the globe.
