Research Focus Areas

AI is a general purpose technology that can be used for good and for ill. Our vision for the future is led by the commitment to promote human-centered uses of AI, and ensure that humanity benefits from the technology and that the benefits are broadly shared. In support of these goals, our research falls into three key focus areas: Human Impact, Augment Human Capabilities, and Intelligence.

Human Impact

To develop equitable and trustworthy technology, we must understand how artificial intelligence performs in practice and impacts humanity.

Augment Human Capabilities

Artificial intelligence should effectively communicate and collaborate with people to augment their capabilities and make their work better and more enjoyable.


Current artificial intelligence systems resist explanation or interaction in terms that are comprehensible by humans.
