This prospectus was written in 2018 to guide the development of the Ada Lovelace Institute and outlines early thinking about our mission and work. Our strategy 2019-2020 outlines our strategic direction and 2020 workplan. A new strategy is underway, and will be published in 2021.
The Ada Lovelace Institute is an independent research and deliberative body with a mission to ensure data and AI work for people and society. Our new prospectus sets out how the Ada Lovelace Institute will promote informed public understanding of the impact of AI and data-driven technologies on different groups of people. It will guide ethical practice in the development and deployment of these technologies, and will undertake research and long-term thinking to lay the foundations for a data-driven society with well-being at its core.
