In a landmark collaboration, Godot GmbH, the European R&D arm of Godot Inc., a Japanese startup dedicated to fostering positive behavioural change, and Validaitor, a spin-off from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) focused on AI quality assurance, have announced a joint Proof of Concept (PoC). This initiative is committed to advancing the development of ethical and unbiased artificial intelligence (AI), in line with the European Union’s AI Act.
Purpose of the Collaboration:
The joint PoC aims to swiftly establish a use case compliant with the EU AI Act, focusing on developing AI devoid of discrimination and biases.
Godot Inc. and Godot GmbH have always prioritized ethical considerations in AI, guided by its core values of “Social Technology,” “Inclusivity,” and “Transparency.” This collaboration with Validaitor, supplemented by the engagement with Ars Electronica Futurelab, represents a concrete action towards realizing these values.
Details of the PoC:
Under this collaboration, Godot GmbH will utilize the platform developed by Validaitor to rigorously test its AI developments for any traces of discrimination or bias. This initiative not only addresses ethical challenges in AI but also positions Godot GmbH at the forefront of compliance with the EU’s AI regulations. It enables Godot GmbH to guarantee the inclusivity and transparency of its AI while aligning with regulatory requirements. For Validaitor, this partnership provides an opportunity to gather extensive insights by diagnosing Godot’s AI on their platform.
