BigScience is not a consortium nor an officially incorporated entity. It's an open collaboration boot-strapped by HuggingFace, GENCI and IDRIS, and organised as a research workshop. This research workshop gathers academic, industrial and independent researchers from many affiliations and whose research interests span many fields of research across AI, NLP, social sciences, legal, ethics and public policy.

In particular, we would like to acknowledge and thank the support provided by:
