Hoffman-Yee Research Grants

The Hoffman-Yee Research Grants are designed to address significant scientific, technical, or societal challenges requiring an interdisciplinary team and a bold approach. The research spans HAI’s key areas of focus: understanding the human and societal impact of AI, augmenting human capabilities, and developing AI technologies inspired by human intelligence. Each of the winning teams receive up to $500,000 in year-one with the opportunity to receive up to $2,000,000 more over the following two years. These grants are made possible by a gift from philanthropists Reid Hoffman and Michelle Yee.
