About Us

The vision of Equality AI was born from the minds of our cofounders, who while working in healthcare IT and data environments, recognized the deep need to address the widening disparities in people-based industries introduced by the explosion of digital tools and algorithms used without oversight or governance. Equality AI addresses this need with a responsible AI Framework and development tools infused with a human- centered approach to guide the usage of AI in healthcare, and ultimately, all people-based industries, to produce fair and unbiased outcomes.
