There are several organisations world-wide working on AI policy or safety. Some of these (e.g. Partnership for AI) are collaborations between tech companies, some (e.g. IEEE) are professional association. There are also several university initiatives (e.g. The Future Society) and non-profit organisations (e.g. Future of Life) working in the AI policy area. Below is a list of iniativies we are following.
