LivePerson (Nasdaq: LPSN), a global leader in customer engagement solutions, joined business leaders in congratulating EqualAI on four years of progress fighting unconscious bias in AI.
EqualAI is an independent nonprofit organization and movement founded in 2018 to reduce unconscious bias in the development and use of artificial intelligence. It is supported by corporate members from the tech industry.
In addition to launching impactful initiatives — including the EqualAI Pledge and EqualAI Badge Program for Responsible AI Governance — the organization’s president, Miriam Vogel, was recently appointed as Chair of the National Artificial Intelligence Advisory Committee (NAIAC), which advises the US President and National AI Initiative Office on a range of issues related to artificial intelligence.
The NAIAC was established by the US Department of Commerce and consists of leaders with a broad and interdisciplinary range of AI-relevant expertise across academia, nonprofits, civil society, and the private sector.
LivePerson founder and CEO Rob LoCascio said, “In just four years, EqualAI has made an incredible impact on the trajectory of artificial intelligence, bending it toward more responsible and ethical outcomes for all. At LivePerson, we’re proud to have played a key role in investing in and spearheading these efforts as a founding member of EqualAI. As we celebrate Miriam Vogel’s appointment to the NAIAC, we encourage organizations of all kinds to take the EqualAI Pledge and undertake the EqualAI Badge Program to make tangible steps toward responsible AI governance.”
