What we ask of you

 

A commitment to share your experiences and lessons learnt in developing and deploying AI/ML – not just the success stories but the challenges and the failures too – anonymously, if you wish. Participation in regular workshops, meetings and themed events, in person or via Teams. A willingness to join in the discussions and share your views.

AI4C

 

AI4C is supplier neutral and technology agnostic. Our meetings and events are sales-free environments where any supplier or representative taking part does so on the understanding that they are not there to promote their company, product or service.

Charities

 

AI4C is open and free of charge to charities engaged with, or planning to use AI/ML, that are willing to join, learn and share. If this sounds like you, please get in touch about becoming a member.

Businesses or individuals

 

AI4C is also interested in hearing from individuals or companies that may want to speak at events, offer pro bono help to charity members or make a donation to AI4C. We are happy to acknowledge any support given. Please do get in touch to discuss.

Some comments from AI4C members:


“The Learning Exchange has provided a fantastic, forum of intelligent, passionate and innovative thinkers for the free exchange of ideas, concerns, best practice and healthy debate.”

Adam Tweed Senior Development Manager AbilityNet

“The speakers were brilliant and it helped illuminate some of the key things like bias and explainablity that we should be considering at Cancer Research UK and I’m already starting to feed back into the work we’re doing.”

Rob Leyland Cancer Research UK

“As a founding member of the WCIT LEX (AI4C), I can honestly say that meeting with likeminded charities and supportive and expert WCIT members in such a creative and collaborative environment, not only provides you with exceptional help and advice but also an invaluable sense of inspiration. The passion for helping society that emanates from these meetings is truly wonderful.”

Geoff Balmont, IT Director – Missing People
