2019-20 Stanford Fellowships CISAC/Human-Centered AI Institute!

November 29, 2018

Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI) Policy Fellowship

The inaugural HAI-CISAC Fellows will pursue research on policy issues related to Stanford University’s Human-Centered AI Institute’s (HAI) mission of guiding the development of artificial intelligence to ensure that it benefits humanity, as well as contribute to Center for International Security and Cooperation’s work on digital security writ large.  Research focus areas may include, among others, regulatory and governance frameworks, policy prescriptions for addressing societal impacts of AI, or national or international security implications of AI.  Fellows will be an integral part of the larger fellowship program at CISAC. This program provides faculty mentorship and requires fellows’ participation in the CISAC Fellows’ Policy Workshop, a biweekly meeting that takes place throughout the academic year and is designed to help fellows bridge the gap between academia and the policy community. All HAI-CISAC fellows are expected to participate in HAI and CISAC research seminars and produce policy-relevant work, which could include media appearances, published articles, or briefings to or workshops for government or international organization officials, ideally in collaboration with researchers from other disciplines. Fellows with backgrounds in the natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, history, and law are encouraged to apply. Both pre- and post-doctoral fellowships are available, but all candidates are expected to be in their final year or have recently completed a terminal degree in their discipline.

The application deadline was January 15, 2019
