Apple is now the sixth founding member of the collaborative. Other founding members include Amazon, Google's DeepMind, Facebook, IBM and Microsoft.

The organization plans to conduct research and create best practices regarding the ethics, privacy and interoperability aspects of artificial intelligence.

"We believe it's beneficial to Apple, our customers and the industry to play an active role in [AI's] development and look forward to collaborating with the group," said Tom Gruber, PhD, a Partnership on AI board member and head of advanced development for Apple's Siri.
