    FYI. A new index to track foundation model transparency. 
    While FAIR does not specifically address “transparency” in the context of models and algorithms, this issue will become increasingly relevant as foundation models are getting more and more popular. 
    “We introduce the Foundation Model Transparency Index to assess the transparency of foundation model developers. We design the Index around 100 transparency indicators, which codify transparency for foundation models, the resources required to build them, and their use in the AI supply chain.”
