Ethics and Governance of AI Initiative

There are presently no open calls for applications.


Launched in 2017, the Ethics and Governance of AI Initiative is a hybrid research effort and philanthropic fund that seeks to ensure that technologies of automation and machine learning are researched, developed, and deployed in a way which vindicate social values of fairness, human autonomy, and justice.

The Initiative is a joint project of the MIT Media Lab and the Harvard Berkman-Klein Center for Internet and Society. It incubates a range of research, prototyping, and advocacy activities within these two anchor institutions and across the broader ecosystem of civil society.

The funders are the Knight Foundation, the William + Flora Hewlett Foundation, Omidyar Network, and Reid Hoffman. The fiscal sponsor is The Miami Foundation.
