I have a hunch that some on this list know parties who would be quite
interested in receiving funding for research into equitable AI.  Those who
do, please forward this email to said individuals.

*Tradewind Opportunity Announcement Notice: EXT-06-15-22 NSF and CSIRO
Equitable AI*

Tradewind is excited to share this external opportunity to our community on
behalf of the National Science Foundation and Australian Commonwealth
Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation!

NSF and CSIRO welcome proposals from joint teams of U.S. and Australian
researchers on responsible and equitable artificial intelligence (AI).

Responsible AI concerns the ethical development of AI to benefit
individuals, society, and the environment, including adherence to AI
Ethical Principles such as those defined by Australia's AI Ethics Framework
and the US National AI Research and Development Strategic Plan: 2019
Update. It should be interpreted broadly to include the design, data, and
algorithmic aspects of AI systems as they relate to ethical principles
(such as fairness, accountability, transparency, inclusion, promotion of
the general welfare, and sustainability), as well as the systems and
software engineering aspects (such as auditing and monitoring, privacy
considerations, and impact of deployments) of responsibility in AI systems.

Equitable AI refers to eliminating discrimination, avoiding misuse,
preventing unintentional harm, and protecting individual rights. The
involvement of those potentially affected by AI systems in the creation of
those systems in order to ensure the sensitivity of those systems to
varying cultural norms and expectations, and efforts to increase the number
of people from disadvantaged and under-represented groups in AI research
development, are means to achieve the aims of Equitable AI.

Proposals should be submitted to National Science Foundation Core Programs
in Computer and Information Science and Engineering (NSF 21-616) in the
Small category for Information & Intelligence Systems/ Human-Centered
Computing (IIS/HCC). The proposal should include separate budgets for the
U.S. and Australian researchers (see Guidelines, below). Budgets for U.S.
researchers may be up to $600,000 USD over a 3-year period. Proposals with
budgets at, or near, this cap should be commensurate with the size of the
project and the team, most likely for projects with established
collaborations with Australian researchers. The budget for the Australian
researchers should be expressed in AUD and has an upper limit of $850,000
AUD total, over 3 years.

Proposals for smaller projects and teams, likely those forming new
collaborations, should have U.S. budgets up to $300,000 over 3 years. The
Australian researcher budget for these projects should be expressed in AUD
with an upper limit of $425,000 AUD total over 3 years. We expect the
effort of the US and Australian team members to be comparable, but do not
require the budget to be split.
