The Manifesto

We invite all mindful humans working in the AI field to reflect on the following questions and start a dialog within your community:
What foundational work could we do within our circle of authority?
How could we influence decision-makers and minimise the risk of algorithms we write or manage? (e.g. bias)
If we were to write a “Mindful AI Manifesto”, how would that look like?

The Challenge

Problem #1 – AI sophistication and complexity is growing at incredible exponential rate while its regulation and governance are falling behind.

Read More

AI ethics is becoming more mainstream, being discussed in social media and occasional meet-ups. However we are still way behind in taking the necessary actions to minimize the potential risk to humanity’s wellbeing given that AI learns and improves itself at an incredible exponential rate. It has been reported several times that programmers do not know or understand why AI is doing what it is doing i.e. AlphaGo(Deep Mind). Often machines make decisions within a black box using highly complex mathematical models beyond their own developers comprehension. This is already happening right now.

Problem #2 – Tech senior leaders and decision-makers are distracted and oblivious to the risk ungoverned AI can pose to humanity in a not so distant future.

Read More

Due to a lack of a deeper understanding of technology, leaders (including CIOs and CTO’s) in many public and private organizations are oblivious to the risk ungoverned AI can pose to humanity in a not so distant future. The recently released documentary “Coded Bias” from film maker Shalini Kantayya is an excellent wake-up. Call for those who remains skeptic.

Problem #3 – The issue is complex and government agencies can take a long time to define policies and establish AI best practices.

Read More

In terms of governance, Stuart Russell highlighted in his book Human Compatible that reports on AI ethics and governance are “multiplying like rats” however there are still no implementable recommendations to handle the problem of control.

Our Initiatives

#1 –AI Consumers are provided with bite size and easy to digest information through The Mindful AI Manifesto website, events and newsletters.

Read More

Technical jargons and key research findings are translated and demystified for a more democratic understanding of AI amongst lay people.

Read Less

#2 – Mindful AI Professionals come together to write The Mindful AI Manifesto.
This will include our understanding, agreed guidelines and best practices around ethics and human values to be adopted while enforced governance model is not available.

#3 – The Mindful AI Manifesto Discussion Forum is established allowing a space for mindful AI professionals to regularly re-connect, re-assess and evolve the Manifesto as new technical and non-technical challenges arises.
#4 –AI Professionals are less biased, more accountable and able to communicate, influence ethical decision making through ongoing leadership development, coaching and mindfulness training.

Read More

Mindfulness training has been proved by scientific research to have a significant positive impact to improve ethical decision making and reduce unconscious bias.

Universal Human Values Map

In the early 2000s, a total of 55 distinguished scientists conducted a research study over several years.
The result was the Universal Humans Values table below (Peterson & Seligman, 2004), which lists 24 positive traits in human beings that transcends cultural barriers.
Since then, hundreds of peer-reviewed articles have been published across many cultures and over 11 million surveys have been taken around the world.
