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.
While there is no formal relationship between any of the affiliation entities of the participants to the workshop and working group, the BigScience initiative is thankful for the freedom to participate to the workshop that the academic and industrial institutions behind all the participants have been providing. In particular, we would like to acknowledge and thank the support provided by:
