Funded by RAI UK, this collaboration involves institutions like the University of Sheffield, the Ada Lovelace Institute, and the Alan Turing Institute. The project runs from April 2024 to March 2025. To address AI’s impact on diverse communities, the fund prioritizes groups underrepresented in AI. Projects funded by the initiative must align with existing relationships and be completed by the end of 2024. The goal is to empower those most affected by AI’s consequences.
