Dear HAI Community,
We started the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI) because we firmly believe in the importance of bringing stakeholders together—people from different disciplines, different sectors, different institutions—to address key challenges posed by applications of this powerful technology. Among those stakeholders are government and civil society, vital partners in ensuring that human values remain front and center in the deployment of AI.
We are pleased to announce our new HAI Policy Briefs, which we hope will provide a valuable conduit for bringing original academic research to bear on issues of importance to policymakers, regulators, and others seeking to address the social impact of AI. The briefs will distill findings, best practices, and other research highlights from fields including engineering and computer science, the humanities and social sciences, law, and medicine.
Our first policy brief, the result of HAI funded research, analyzes the U.S. federal government’s use of AI, and can be accessed here.
HAI Policy Briefs will initially come in three flavors:
- Our main series will showcase original AI research ranging from social and behavioral sciences to innovation, technology and international affairs.
- A special series dedicated to health care will draw on the wealth of AI research at the Stanford School of Medicine.
- Finally, HAI’s new Digital Economy Lab will publish policy briefs dedicated to the economic implications of technology and the future of work.
We hope you find these briefs useful and that you share them with others in your network interested in the policy implications of evidence-based AI research happening at Stanford.
We would love to hear your feedback or suggestions at HAI-Policy@stanford.edu.
