At Salesforce, we take seriously our mission to create and deliver AI technology that is responsible, accountable, transparent, empowering, and inclusive. These principles ensure that our AI is safe, ethical, and engenders trust. We commit ourselves to:
One key element of our commitment to Transparency is the production of model cards. Based on pioneering work done by Google, model cards seek to standardize documentation procedures to communicate the performance characteristics of trained machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) models. Think of them as a sort of nutrition label, designed to provide critical information about how our models work -- including inputs, outputs, the conditions under which models work best, and ethical considerations in their use.
Providing this level of transparency is intended to help developers, customers, journalists and industry analysts, policy makers, advocacy groups, and consumers better understand the impact of our AI on individuals, communities and society.
The following model cards are currently available for reference:
