In support of our mission to benefit people and society, the Partnership on AI conducts research, organizes discussions, shares insights, provides thought leadership, consults with relevant third parties, responds to questions from the public and media, and creates educational material that advances the understanding of AI technologies including machine perception, learning, and automated reasoning.

The Assuring Autonomy International Programme is delighted to be supporting the AISafety Workshop. The Programme is advancing the safety of robotics and autonomous systems (RAS) across the globe. It is a £12million partnership between Lloyd’s Register Foundation and the University of York that is working with an international community of developers, regulators, researchers and others to ensure the public can benefit from the safe, assured and regulated introduction and adoption of RAS. 

The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER) is an interdisciplinary research centre at the University of Cambridge dedicated to the study and mitigation of existential risks posed by present or future technology.

The CEA (Commissariat à l'énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives), is a French public government-funded research organisation in the areas of energy, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. The LIST Institute works on four main themes: factory of the future, cyber-physical systems, artificial intelligence and digital health.
