Generative AI

At Business Fights Poverty we are committed to building insights at the intersection of business and societal issues, and to deepening understanding through collaboration and collective learning. We use generative AI as a tool to help us better distil and disseminate the collective insights of our community. Our approach is human-centred, AI-enabled and impact-focused. We appreciate that AI can help provide access to key insights as an input into our critical thinking, problem solving and relationship building as a community. We are also mindful of the limitations and risks of AI.

We are guided in the use of AI by the following principles:

  1. Human-Centred Collaboration: Utilise AI as a complement to human expertise, using a co-piloting approach that leverages the unique qualities and skills of our team members and community alongside AI-powered solutions.
  2. Inclusivity and Diversity: Ensure AI applications promote inclusivity and represent diverse perspectives, actively working to eliminate structural biases and provide a balanced representation of views in our outputs.
  3. Rigour and Quality: Prioritise research rigour and content quality over speed and quantity, using AI to enhance our work rather than seeking shortcuts or compromising on excellence.
  4. Trust and Credibility: Maintain honesty and transparency in our use of AI. Recognising the limits of AI, we lead with experts and researchers to ensure the credibility of the content we generate.
  5. Conscious and Mindful Usage: Employ AI consciously, recognising that it may not always be the optimal solution depending on the task, and remaining committed to continuous review and improvement.
  6. Accessible and Engaging Content: Use AI to expand the accessibility of our work, generating content in new languages, formats, and mediums to reach a wider audience.
  7. Community-Driven Innovation: Leverage the wealth of original content generated by our community, recognising and acknowledging contributors (where appropriate), and integrating their valuable insights into AI-powered processes to enhance the overall quality of our outputs so that we drive innovation, deliver solutions and drive action by business.
