AIandYou is a nonprofit platform engaging and educating communities of color about artificial intelligence (AI) and highlighting the work of diverse AI leaders. AIandYou provides free online resources to help communities understand more about the rapid advancements of AI impacting their everyday lives. AIandYou is seeking to create a more inclusive AI ecosystem by empowering communities with easy to understand information.
Artificial Intelligence has quickly become part of our everyday lives. AI brings us many great things, and some not-so-great things, too. AI tools can support our health, small businesses, education, and employment. AI can also be biased and negatively impact communities of color.
So what can AIandYou do? We serve as a platform of resources for communities to learn about artificial intelligence in easy to understand language. Our platform functions as a place where leaders and members of science, education, civil rights, and professional communities come together to learn about AI, to identify biases and solutions, and to create equity in the communities often overlooked in technology.
Based in the Bay Area, AIandYou is a project of a 501(c)(3) nonprofit platform committed to educating and engaging communities of color about artificial intelligence and highlighting diverse AI leaders and their work.
AIandYou was founded by Susan Gonzales. Gonzales is a former tech executive who realized an opportunity to connect diverse leaders in AI with community advocates to create a dialogue about AI and to educate our communities.
