2019 Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence Institute Symposium

Artificial intelligence will be the most consequential technology of the 21st century—augmenting human capabilities, transforming industries and economies, and reshaping societies. Stanford HAI was established to advance AI technology and applications, and to provide leadership in understanding and influencing its impact on the world. It will conduct high-impact research; convene stakeholders from industry, government, academia, and civil society to address critical technical and societal challenges; and educate leaders across all sectors.

Three fundamental beliefs guide HAI: AI technology should be inspired by human intelligence; the development of AI must be guided by its human impact; and applications of AI should enhance and augment humans, not replace them. HAI will permeate and access the entire university, bringing Stanford’s vast array of disciplines and capabilities to bear in an interdisciplinary manner across the basic sciences, engineering, psychology, medicine, business, law, education, and the social sciences.

Stanford Data Science for Social Good Summer Fellow

This opportunity will bring together teams of student fellows (Stanford undergraduate and graduate students) with technical mentors (advanced Stanford graduate students) to work on a challenge with significant social impact under the guidance of Stanford faculty and senior researchers. The fellowship’s main goal is to create a unique, world-class data science learning experience for student fellows while helping to provide positive social impact by working on real-world problems.

Fellows collaborate on interdisciplinary teams to tackle a data science problem. Fellows will also be selected based on demonstrated commitment to data science with social impact and overall enthusiasm for engaging deeply with the program. Fellows must be a undergraduate, a graduate student, or a postdoc at Stanford. Fellows from all disciplines are encouraged to apply. Fellows will receive a stipend for participating in the program. In order to apply, please use this form to submit your CV and a single page Letter of Intent that describes your interest in becoming a Stanford Data Science for Social Good Summer Fellow and how you might use the opportunity.  We strongly encourage you to provide links to any publicly accessible code and visualizations that you have developed and/or articles or websites that describe efforts that you have led.

The Brown Institute for Media Innovation seeks innovative ideas that lay at the intersection of media and technology. Founded in 2012, our joint program between the Stanford School of Engineering and the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism provides "Magic Grants” for up to $300,000 per team per academic year to help back an innovative idea, story, or product from conception to iteration.
Are you passionate about the role that emerging technologies can play in the future of media? Do you have a story that can only be told using technology outside the scope of traditional media? A Brown Institute Magic Grant might be for you. 
We are looking for hardware, software, story proposals. We are interested in projects that advance storytelling, media information systems, and journalism through new applications of technology. We also are interested in new tools and technologies that can be applied to the media space writ large. We welcome interest from all areas of research and in all disciplines! Read more.
