Shared Concerns Need Common Responses
CosyAI is a coalition of real human beings and human governed organizations who want to make sure that AI will always be applied in ways that serve our sincere purposes and never turn us into servants for purposes that aren’t our own.
We want to achieve this by taking a cooperative approach, based on our common human strength to engage in cooperation based on trust, human connections, and community values (Cosy stands for Cooperating sincerely).
Complementing Public Regulation
We share a concern that our governments might neither possess the technical knowledge nor sufficiently effective decision-making mechanisms for creating an adequate regulatory environment for AI. In particular, given the pace of its development and the economic power and information advantage of the corporations involved in pushing it forward.
We’ve already seen with the challenge of climate change, how our public institutions have failed for decades to create and enforce the necessary global regulation. Regulating AI in a responsible way is another urgent global challenge that requires balanced and well-conceived global responses. It would be naive and irresponsible to rely on a hope that our public institutions act quickly and decisively enough.
We are, however, committed to work with public institutions in meaningful and constructive ways to encourage and support the development of balanced and effective regulatory frameworks for AI – in particular, by contributing a perspective of cooperating sincerely.
A Cooperative Approach
With CosyAI, we invite everyone who shares these concerns to join forces and build a safe digital space, in which we can collectively decide on how we want to use AI and how not.
For this, we will create a cooperative at EU level (SCE), with open membership to people from all around the world. It will allow us to decide on common standards and have full common ownership of everything we create.
As part of the next steps, we will create further local cooperatives in different regions to strengthen global inclusiveness.
Open to All
Any real human being will be able to join the cooperative and get support for the healthy use of AI.
In order to enable everyone who wants to heal and strengthen their cooperative human nature, CosyAI is accompanied by the Cosyland project.

Building an AI Safe Space
Finally, many of us share wider concerns that the developments in AI could overtake us as societies and expose us to inflating fake information, manipulation, job loss, and other potential risks that we’re not adequately prepared for.
This is why we aim in the long run to create an AI Safe Space for humans who want to co-exist with AI safely, without giving AI-systems control over us.
The goal is to enable everyone, as a private person or an organization, to take a conscious choice about the extend to which we engage with advanced AI, and to be able to opt out safely, if we choose so.
