Democratize Artificial Intelligence

Donation protected
Hello, and welcome to our GoFundMe campaign for LAION (Large Scale Artificial Intelligence Open Network). We are a passionate group of researchers and developers dedicated to the open-source development of AI. Our goal is to democratize AI by releasing open datasets, models, and code to promote safety, transparency, and fair access to AI technology.

We believe that AI is the future, and that future should be open and accessible to everyone, not just a select few. That's why we're seeking your support to raise funds that will help us develop open-source AI resources and promote safety and transparency across the field.

With your generous donations, we will:

  • Create and maintain open datasets that fuel cutting-edge AI research and development
  • Develop open-source AI models that can be used, modified, and improved upon by researchers, developers, and organizations worldwide
  • Release open-source code and tools to empower individuals and businesses to harness the power of AI. Look through our blog posts to find our recent achievements or head over to our twitter account .
  • Collaborate with researchers and institutions (e.g., University of Washington, Université de Montreal, Helmholtz Institute) to promote safety and transparency in AI, ensuring that AI technologies serve the public interest.
  • Organize workshops, conferences, and educational programs to increase awareness and knowledge about AI safety and open-source development (see also our public discord community with over 24,000 members)

By supporting this campaign, you are helping to level the playing field in AI, fostering innovation, competition, and strategic independence. Your contribution will have a lasting impact on the development of AI technologies that will shape our societies for years to come.

Every donation counts, no matter how big or small. Together, we can ensure a safer, more transparent, and democratic AI future for all. Thank you for your support!
