We help technology get built responsibly.
Who we are
The Partnership to Advance Responsible Technology (PART) is a nonprofit organization comprised of multi-skilled stakeholders supporting the responsible development of AI and data-driven technologies and working to grow an equitable and publicly-beneficial technology sector. Our expertise ranges from AI experts, ethicists, business leaders, legal consults, and policy experts, which we combine to develop unique solutions to problems involved in cross-sector and cross-community applications of data and AI technologies.
Why this is important
Rapid advancements across sectors and industries indicate that our collective future will be heavily shaped by the development of emerging technologies in a number of disciplinary domains. Simultaneously, we see these advances challenge many of our shared values, such as equity, fairness, privacy, security, respect, and accountability. Experts and stakeholders must work together to ensure that we usher technology in the right direction for the benefit of the many. Strategies that advance ethical values in our technologies must come first regardless of organizational efficiencies and profit-motives. We plan to give home to these efforts.
