AI provides one of the greatest opportunities for humanity. Yet the access to its expertise and resources is limited. AI’s development is driven by a few, directing the way AI is applied not taking into account the diverse needs. Even more, the driving forces of AI’s development don’t reflect the world’s cultural and environmental diversity, risking abuse and imbalance. Therefore City.AI started out as an organization to enable everyone to apply AI by democratizing its design, development and use. This ensures diversity and responsible development and application of AI can actually be happen to achieve our organizations mission of AI fulfilling the real social needs of humanity and our world. Since 2016, City.AI has emerged into the world’s leading non-profit connecting the AI community globally and supporting local AI ecosystems to develop further.
