Introducing HAI Student Affinity Groups
Stanford HAI has launched a new program for Stanford students that will allow them to work across disciplines to build ideas and community around AI that benefits humanity.
The HAI Student Affinity Groups will comprise students from all Stanford schools who share an interest in a topic related to human-centered AI. Groups may form around issues ranging from removing bias from data to rethinking the role of people in developing machine intelligence, considering the global societal impact of AI technologies for the greater good, or studying AI technologies that augment human capabilities rather than replace them, to name a few.
Stanford HAI will provide up to $500 in funding per term for each group for activities such as biweekly gatherings, space for meetings, and access to the institute’s community of researchers and fellows.
“Part of Stanford HAI's mission is to develop the next leaders of artificial intelligence,” says Vanessa Parli, HAI associate director of research programs. “Our goal through these affinity groups is to create a space for students to share ideas and develop a mindset where they question the human impact of building or using technology from the start.”
Applications are due Nov. 11, 2022. The first groups will be announced in mid-December and kick off during Winter quarter.
