Join the Responsible AI Collaborative Founding Staff

Posted 2022-03-29 by Responsible AI Collaborative.

The AI Incident Database launched publicly in November 2020 as a dashboard of AI harms realized in the real world. Inspired by similar databases in the aviation industry, its change thesis is derived from the Santayana aphorism, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
