AI Open Innovation Day Tokyo

Attendees arrive at AI Open Innovation Day Tokyo

Open innovation in AI software, algorithms, data and models has enabled the rapid progress we have seen over the past couple of years in large language models and generative artificial intelligence. Moving forward, open innovation has an important role to serve in ensuring that AI is safe, trusted, and beneficial to all of society.

On May 15, leaders across industry, academia and government gathered in Tokyo, Japan, to discuss the latest advances in AI and to explore why open technologies and open communities are essential to the successful advancement of AI.

During the event, AI Alliance announced that membership has grown to 100 organizations, including 3 new Japanese organizations:  Tokyo Electron, Panasonic, and Tokyo Institute of Tech. AI Alliance also announced the formation of a new AI for Materials and Chemistry working group, which will focus on collaborating to apply the state of the art in AI to advance the fields of materials and chemistry.

The event, which was co-hosted by AI Alliance and The Linux Foundation, included presentations from AI experts across industry, academia and government. Attendees heard from several AI Alliance members including experts from Aitomatic, FPT Software, IBM, Keio University, Meta, Weight & Biases, Inc., and Tokyo Institute of Technology.

Evaluation of Generative AI - what’s ultimately our goal?

The era of generative AI has ushered in new challenges and risks, which have completely changed the way we think about product development. With increasingly diverse ways to evaluate models, we learn both about emergent capabilities but also about the potential harms they bring. One of the major challenges as evaluations become more esoteric is that ways to collaborate are limited for experts in various fields that also intersect in generative AI.
