We have already posted an article recently on the use of technology in War (see our AI FUTURE SHOW newsletter). But we wanted to make a more positive statement in support of Ukraine. Like the larger technology consultancy firms, we also wish to confirm that we do not and will not work with any Russian entity.
For transparency; We already partner with several European firms, including companies based in Poland. We also work with AI startups from around the globe, however, we do not have any Russian based startups in our portfolio, and will not accept applications from Russian based startups going forward. We will also establish a Responsible AI Advisory Board, to ensure we review all uses of AI we support, either via our Consulting, Ventures or Works business divisions.
The executive team will also review other ways in which we can support the people of Ukraine as the human crisis continues in the coming weeks and months.
