Research Centers & Partners

The work of HAI is only made possible through collaboration with partners across and beyond the Stanford campus, all of which are critical partners in achieving our mission. 

HAI Centers and Labs

  • The One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence, or AI100, is a 100-year effort to study and anticipate how the effects of artificial intelligence will ripple through every aspect of how people work, live, and play.

  • AI4ALL opens doors to artificial intelligence for historically excluded talent through education and mentorship.

  • The AI Index is an effort to track, collate, distill and visualize data relating to artificial intelligence.  It aspires to be a comprehensive resource of data and analysis for policymakers, researchers, executives, journalists, and the general public to develop intuitions about the complex field of AI.

  • The mission of the Stanford Center for AI Safety is to develop rigorous techniques for building safe and trustworthy AI systems and establishing confidence in their behavior and robustness, thereby facilitating their successful adoption in society.

  • The Center for Research on Foundation Models (CRFM) is an interdisciplinary initiative born out of Stanford HAI that aims to make fundamental advances in the study, development, and deployment of foundation models.

  • The Center for the Study of Language and Information (CSLI) serves Stanford faculty and students who are engaged in research involving computational, logical, and stochastic modeling of cognitive functions and processes.

  • Despite incredible recent advances in machine learning, building machine learning applications remains prohibitively time-consuming and expensive for all but the best-trained, best-funded engineering organizations. Data Analytics for What's Next, or DAWN, is a five-year research project to democratize AI by making it dramatically easier to build AI-powered applications. 

  • The Stanford Digital Economy Lab at HAI is an interdisciplinary research group studying how digital technologies are transforming work, organizations, and the economy. An engine for research and education, the Lab brings together an unprecedented group of stakeholders to analyze data, run experiments, develop theories, and provide actionable insights. 

  • The Golub Capital Social Impact Lab uses digital technology and social science research to improve the effectiveness of leading social sector organizations. Based out of Stanford GSB, the lab is a research initiative of affiliated academics and staff, as well as researchers and students, who are passionate about conducting research that guides and improves the process of innovation.

  • Open Virtual Assistant Lab, or OVAL, is creating an ecosystem founded on open virtual assistant technology that democratizes AI for linguistic user interfaces, creates an open and non-proprietary web, and promotes sharing with individual data ownership.

  • The Regulation, Evaluation, and Governance Lab (RegLab) partners with government agencies to design and evaluate programs, policies, and technologies that modernize governance.

  • The Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (SAIL) has been a center of excellence for AI research, teaching, theory, and practice since its founding in 1962.

Stanford Partners

  • The Black in AI Research (BlackAIR) initiative aims to empower Black women to achieve their goals and positively impact their communities through AI innovation. BlackAIR Summer Research Grants aim to provide support for AI Research projects led by Black women.

  • The Center for AI in Medicine and Imaging (AIMI Center) to develop, evaluate, and disseminate artificial intelligence systems to benefit patients.  We conduct research that solves clinically important imaging problems using machine learning and other AI techniques.

  • At the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity, we strive to create a space of learning dedicated to the respectful observance of the many different (and heterogeneous) peoples, cultures, and celebrations that make us who we are now—and who we want to be in the future.

  • The Center for International Security and Cooperation tackles the most critical security issues in the world today by bringing together leading scholars in the social and natural sciences to collaborate across disciplines and professional backgrounds. 

  • The Stanford Cyber Policy Center, a joint initiative of the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies and Stanford Law School, is Stanford University's research center for the interdisciplinary study of issues at the nexus of technology, governance and public policy focused on digital technologies impacting democracy, security, and geopolitics globally.

  • The Digital Civil Society Lab (DCSL) aims to understand and inform civil society in a digitally dependent world. We engage scholars, practitioners, policy makers and students across four interconnected domains that shape a thriving and independent digital civil society:  organizations, technologypolicy, and values.

  • The Hoover Institution is seeking to improve the human condition by advancing ideas that promote economic opportunity and prosperity, while securing and safeguarding peace for America and all mankind.

  • The Institute for Diversity in the Arts (IDA) is a student-facing and serving organization at Stanford University. IDA trains and supports undergraduates in visionary arts leadership through stewarding the power of the arts toward social justice. We believe that the arts are a powerful means for empowering difference, dismantling oppression, and building more sustainable futures.

  • The John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships empowers diverse journalism leaders to succeed as effective change agents, sustain democratic communities and defend press freedom around the world.

  • The McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society is committed to bringing ethical reflection to bear on important social problems through research, teaching, and community engagement. Drawing on the established strengths of Stanford interdisplinary faculty, the Center develops initiatives with ethical dimensions that relate to pressing public problems.

  • The Office of the Vice President for the Arts provides operational support for all of the units of the Vice President for the Arts, and operates as a central resource for students and faculty. This includes funding, space, and materials for student extracurricular arts activities; opportunities for student professional development; faculty grants; and oversight of visiting artist programs.

  • The Stanford Aging & Ethnogeriatrics Research Center (SAGE) aims to solve many of the current problems in aging research using the latest technological tools including artificial intelligence/machine learning, precision medicine, digital interventions, virtual reality, and others.

  • Th Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR) is Stanford University’s home for understanding the economic challenges, opportunities, and policies affecting people in the United States and around the world.
