Through the Machine Learning Impact Initiative, researchers and professionals with expertise across many disciplines are brought together to build a shared vision that can be used to guide future research. This shared vision will better frame, focus, and organize future work in machine learning impact across the globe, and will support the development of a clear roadmap for research into issues of safety and impact in the digital age.


  • Build an infrastructure of researchers from academic universities and private institutions to explore the impact of machine learning on human health and safety
  • Develop a network of research groups
  • Host a set of focused summits aimed at developing a problem framing white paper that defines a core research roadmap
  • Develop and disseminate white paper to craft research funding plans
