Vector Flow Commits to EqualAI Pledge to Combat Bias in Artificial Intelligence

Vector Flow, a provider of AI and data-driven physical security solutions, proudly announces its commitment to the EqualAI® pledge, marking its promise to play an active role in the fight against bias in artificial intelligence (AI). The company joins a distinguished group of organizations collaborating under the guidance of EqualAI, a nonprofit organization, and a movement, focused on reducing unconscious bias in the development and use of AI.

The EqualAI pledge is as follows:

  1. I pledge to test (and regularly retest) for unconscious bias in the AI that my company and/or I use or create, particularly in critical areas where we do not want to replicate and scale historical biases against protected classes, such as in hiring, evaluations, promotions, product testing and awarding benefits (e.g., financial & health care services).
  2. I pledge that I will take appropriate, lawful action within my control when I identify harmful biases and patterns in AI that create inequality.
  3. I pledge to ask our vendors and partners to take the Pledge and commit to joining our effort to reduce harmful bias in AI.

In an era where AI plays an increasingly pivotal role in all industries, it is imperative to proactively address biases that may inadvertently emerge. Vector Flow is proud to stand alongside industry leaders collectively working towards the development and deployment of trustworthy AI. This commitment resonates not only with Vector Flow’s core values but also aligns with the messaging set forth in the recent White House Executive Order issued to promote the safe, secure, and trustworthy development and use of AI.

"As leaders in physical security automation, Vector Flow is unwavering in its commitment to innovation that aligns with ethical practices,” said Ajay Jain, CEO and founder at Vector Flow. “By signing the EqualAI pledge, we emphasize our dedication to reducing bias in AI and fostering a more inclusive technological landscape."

EqualAI is at the forefront of efforts to illuminate and mitigate unconscious bias in the development and deployment of AI technologies. With a focus on fostering collaboration among leaders and experts from various sectors—technology, law, business, and government—EqualAI is actively developing standards, tools, and advocating for regulatory and legislative solutions to address bias in AI.
