Kakao becomes 1st S. Korean firm to join global open-source AI Alliance

Kakao Corp. said Friday it has joined a global consortium that promotes open-source artificial intelligence (AI) research and development, becoming the first South Korean corporate member of the initiative. Kakao said it is the first South Korean firm to join the AI Alliance led by global tech giants IBM and Meta, as part of efforts to help create a local AI ecosystem that meets global standards. The AI Alliance was founded in December by a range of organizations, from global big tech companies and startups to public institutes and universities, and currently has around 100 members. The consortium aims to accelerate open innovation across the AI technology landscape to improve foundational capabilities, safety, security and trust in AI. "We will cooperate with the AI Alliance to create a safe and credible open-source AI ecosystem that meets global standards," Kim Kyung-hoon, head of Kakao's AI safety division, said.
