Hoffman-Yee Research Grants

The Hoffman-Yee Research Grants are designed to fund interdisciplinary teams with research spanning 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. These grants are made possible by a gift from philanthropists Reid Hoffman and Michelle Yee.

Six Stanford research teams have received funding to solve some of the most challenging problems in the field of AI. Learn more about their research and the 2022 Hoffman-Yee Research Grant recipients.
