HAI Initiatives

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

HAI Initiatives:

  • 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.
