Cohere For AI Announces Nonprofit Lab Dedicated to Basic Open Source Research | New

PALO ALTO, Calif. and TORONTO, June 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, Cohere for AI, a nonprofit research lab and community, has announced its official launch. Dedicated to contributing to fundamental research in open source machine learning, the lab will focus on solving some of the most complex challenges in the field of machine learning.

Sara Hooker will serve as Cohere For AI Lead, bringing a wealth of knowledge in AI and machine learning, with a specialty in deep learning. Prior to Cohere For AI, Sara was a research scientist at Google Brain, where she focused on training models that go beyond leading metrics to effectively demonstrate its ability to be interpretable, compact, fair, and robust. She also founded Delta Analytics, a non-profit organization that brings together researchers, data scientists and software engineers to offer their skills to non-profit organizations around the world.

“In order to realize the potential of machine learning, we need to ensure that we work with a diverse set of people, disciplines, backgrounds and geographies,” said Aidan Gomez, CEO and co-founder of Cohere. “I’m so excited to have Sara leading Cohere For AI and look forward to building the community together.”

Cohere For AI aims to create open collaboration with the broader machine learning community. The lab is committed to supporting fundamental research on machine learning topics, while prioritizing the stewardship of open source science practices.

“It’s the lab I wish I existed when I walked into the field,” said Hooker, head of Cohere For AI. “Depending on where you are, there is often a lack of opportunities for machine learning. Cohere For AI aims to reinvent how, where and by whom research is done. I am inspired by the opportunity to make an impact that not only advances machine learning research, but also expands access to the field.

In addition to basic research contributions, Cohere For AI will support a machine learning community where members can connect with each other, discover new colleagues, and stimulate open discussion and collaboration. The lab and community will work to create new entry points into machine learning research and will ultimately reflect the diversity of experiences and interests of its members.
