About us
The Israeli Association for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence (IAEAI) is dedicated to exploring the ethical dimensions of AI and guiding the AI community towards responsible practices.
By collaborating with researchers, developers, policymakers, and end-users, the IAEAI seeks to establish a solid ethical foundation for AI technologies that will benefit society for generations to come. We strive to create a just, equitable, and prosperous future for all, by integrating ethical principles into AI research, design, and application.
Mission Statement
Today, we proudly stand as a hub for hundreds of AI enthusiasts, experts, and advocates. IAEAI ever-expanding community shares a collective vision of steering AI development in the right, ethical direction. Our diverse membership encompasses various sectors, backgrounds, and perspectives, creating a rich tapestry of insights and ideas.

One of our Association's cornerstones is the Scientific Council. This body consists of over 30 AI Ethics researchers from leading universities and research centers across 15 countries. Their collective expertise guides our initiatives and ensures we remain at the forefront of ethical AI discussions.

We're currently in our pre-launch stage, gearing up for an official introduction to the broader community. As we prepare for this next step, we invite individuals and organizations to join us, contribute their insights, and shape the future of ethical AI with us.

Together, we can make AI not only more intelligent but also more responsible.
