Ethical AI Supply Chain

We value and support our diverse team of AI Training Specialists. That’s why we’ve created a Code of Ethics to guide our approach to engaging with them.

Our Code ensures that the AI Training Specialists have a voice, that we respect their privacy and confidentiality, and that they receive fair compensation for their contributions. By prioritizing their inclusion and well-being, we can create AI models that are robust, unbiased, and reflective of community needs and values.

Collaboration is key, so we work with policymakers, industry peers, and civil society to promote ethical AI practices and advance responsible AI technologies.
