The tech giant Google introduces a new project named Google PAIR also known as People + AI Research Initiative. The goal of PAIR is to focus on the human side of AI. Google’s researchers are looking at the relationship between humans and artificial intelligence in the hopes of making the latter more useful to the former, Google said on its blog.

The tech giant said that PAIR research is divided into three levels. How normal user can use it as a tool in daily life. How professional in all fields can use it to make their jobs easier. And last how practical AI development can be taught to engineers.

Google PAIR’s research is divided into three areas, based on different user needs

Their focus is not to just publishing research, Google is also open sourcing new tools, for researchers and other experts to use. It seems that their goal is to extend the reach of AI to as many people as possible.


Google isn’t the only one making big moves to help develop the nascent field. On 10th July, the Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence Fund, helmed by Harvard University’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society and the MIT Media Lab, pledged $7.6 million to support the creation of AI.

Last year tech giants like Facebook, Amazon, IBM, and Microsoft are going to build new not-for-profit called the Partnership on Artificial Intelligence to Benefit People and Society.


Facets Overview and Facets Dive, these tools are aimed at engineers to examine and understand data better. By getting the basics of machine learning right, it will help AI to recognize & process with better precision.


Open-source tools

Google thinks that those tools (Facets Overview and Facets Dive) are important. The training data is a key ingredient in modern AI system.  With Facets, engineers can more easily debug and understand what they’re building. You can read full details at Google’s open source repository.


Focusing on the human element in AI brings new possibilities. Google is excited to work together to invent and explore what’s possible.
