Studies have shown that the Global North is dominant in the production of AI principles. In the hopes of making other perspectives more accessible, Dr Ravit Dotan and Dr Emmanuel R. Goffi, co-Director of the Global AI Ethics Institute, have created a curated directory of high-level experts in non-Western AI ethics.
This group will contribute to the contextualization of AI ethics addressing the topic through its cultural dimension.

Alliance for Responsible AI
The Alliance for Responsible AI (AfRAI) is a union between four think tanks aiming at developping an evaluation systems and specific regulations in data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) that guarantee a safe and inclusive development and use of this technology.
The origin of the AfRAI is the need to create an independent body that promotes a framework of certification to guarantee and monitor that AI is at the service of European citizens.
In 2021, the AfRAI launched its "Top of AI Startups Award" and in 2022 the "Top of AI Apps Award".
