At Virtuous AI, we believe in encoding human values into technology. Thus, we provide data scientists and upper
management with a collaborative environment for developing and deploying AI that is fair, explainable, secure, and
regulable. In particular, we provide infrastructure-as-code (IaC) to allow data management, advice, automation API, and
contents moderation. That way you can easily get tools and access to a network of professionals to create better, more
responsible AI solutions without having your own departments.
What is Virtuous AI?
Virtuous AI was founded August 2019. At roughly that time, we had been at the aftermath of Cambridge Analytica’s use of
Facebook ads to influence make a significant impact in both of the Ted Cruz and Trump campaigns. Cambridge Analytica had
employed hundreds of thousands of data points collected by Facebook to very accurately predict each user’s behavior
based on personality. As a result, distrust of the morals of Big Tech was at an all time high. Additionally, anti-trust
investigations were being conducted on Google, among their other data privacy concerns. Twitter was criticized for their
lax content policies.
The problem, Rory (Founder and CEO) believed, was mindless innovation. It was as if competitive advantage in the Silicon
Valley was revolved around exploitation of one the 7 deadly sins. Thus, Virtuous AI was formed as a solution to the
problem of innovation with the goal of understanding human virtues, using them for good, and creating a culture that can
make it easier and economic for corporations to be more ethical.
The idea had been to form a company with the three pillars Ethics, Consultation, and Network. Our primary goal is to
provide relentless adherence to virtues over vices: care, fairness, authority, loyalty, purity among various others.
Furthermore, we want to harness the power of wisdom of the crowds by creating a vast, inclusive culture. We want you to
be able post your content online, get eyes on it, and get feedback quickly that you would not in a closed environment.
Lastly, we want to make the process of going Virtuous as easy as possible by bringing everything you need to you. That
is why we created virtual consulting and advice.
