Risks from artificial intelligence

Why AI Safety?

AI is advancing rapidly, and it won't be long before they surpass humans in various domains. As this technological progress continues, it is crucial that we prioritize the safety of these systems. Without proper safeguards in place, we expose ourselves to existing  risks.

A*PART is committed to supporting researchers in the field of ML safety. Our goal is to foster a deeper understanding of AI and how to make it safer.

If you would like to invite us to speak at your event, please contact us at

Stay informed and join the discussion - together, we can shape the future of AI and ensure its safe and responsible development.
