Hoffman-Yee Symposium

Tue September 19th 2023, 9:00am - 5:30pm
Event Sponsor
Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI)
Gates Computer Science Building
353 Jane Stanford Way, Stanford, CA 94305

The Hoffman-Yee Grant Symposium will highlight the work of the 2022 winners of the Hoffman-Yee Research Grants. The teams will present their results to date, plans for the future, and compete for additional funding of up to $2 million over the next two years. The grant program is a multiyear initiative to invest in research that leverages artificial intelligence to address significant scientific and/or societal challenges aligned with Stanford 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. We believe the results of these projects could play a significant role in defining future work in AI from academia to industry, government, healthcare and civil society.

At the Symposium, the 2021 recipients of Hoffman-Yee Research Grants will also be presenting results from their research to date and plans for the future.
