Scaling responsible AI solutions

There is an increasing awareness amongst leaders in public and private actors that a responsible approach to AI is needed to ensure its beneficial and sustainable use. However, what is still partially missing is a clear path and blueprint to ensure how to do this in a systematic way, while creating value for their organizations and communities. Implementing Responsible AI across public and private organizations is crucial and deploying at scale remains problematic.

The Scaling Responsible AI Solutions project is led by GPAI Experts, in the context of the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI). This project aims at providing opportunities to deploy and scale Responsible AI solutions, showcasing results, encouraging cross-functional
collaboration, and helping adopt performance metrics with the intention to contribute to tangible outcomes that can help operationalize the RAI framework within GPAI and beyond.

In addition to tailored mentorship by GPAI experts and invited specialists, selected teams will receive a multitude of benefits and learning opportunities throughout their journey. This includes gaining insights from diverse perspectives, collaborating with other teams and experts, and accessing valuable resources and support from GPAI and its network of partners.

By participating in this project, teams will have the opportunity to shape the responsible AI landscape, contribute to global efforts in
promoting ethical and responsible AI practices, and create meaningful positive change in their organizations and communities. Join us in this exciting journey to foster responsible AI deployment and make a lasting impact!


We appreciate your interest in contributing to responsible AI development. We look forward to learning more about your project and how it aligns with our goals for responsible AI implementation.

6. Challenges on scalability (150 words)
7. Challenges on responsible development & adoption (150 words)
8. Other challenges hindering the progress of the project (150 words)

We will select applicant teams based on the information provided and according to a three-level priority framework:

  • Priority 1: RAI Solutions that face challenges with scaling. A RAI solution is grounded in a vision of AI that is human-centered, fair, equitable, inclusive and respectful of privacy, human rights and democracy, and that aims at contributing positively to the public good.
  • Priority 2: AI Solutions that have demonstrated potential for scaling but need to validate the responsible attribute of their solution, and want to become a RAI solution.
  • Priority 3: AI solutions that face challenges on both fronts (Responsibility and Scalability).

What we provide to selected teams:

During a period of 3 months (June 2023 - August 2023):

  • Detailed objectives and milestones for each team
  • Advice from GPAI experts and invited specialists around the challenges you are facing in your project
  • Contact with government representatives, to further discuss your challenges and possible public policy mechanisms to address them, if the team is based in a country that is a GPAI member

At the end of the 3 months, we will provide:

  1. Takeaway recommendations for next steps
  2. Evaluation of the progress in regards to the identified challenges and of the potential of the team & solution
  3. Attestation of the team’s participation in this project
  4. Offer to include the project in the 2023 GPAI report on Scaling RAI Solutions
  5. Possible introductions to potential partners

Limited financial support might be considered in justified cases if necessary

Non-selected teams will receive feedback motivating the decision.

What we expect:

We expect the following commitment from the selected teams from June to August 2023:

  • Participation in an initial session to present the detailed proposal
  • Participation in regular advice, update, and reporting sessions (minimum once a month)
  • Delivering documentation of the progress during the three months
  • Participation in an evaluation workshop at the end of the three months
  • Contribution to writing the final GPAI report
