Emory and Georgia Tech announce first winners of “AI.Humanity Seed Grant Program”

Emory University and Georgia Institute of Technology have announced the inaugural recipients of $100,000 in funding under their collaborative “AI.Humanity Seed Grant Program.”

The initiative is an extension of the existing partnership between the two universities forged through Emory’s “Constructive Collisions” programming and is designed to spur new research collaborations and expand existing partnerships to leverage artificial intelligence (AI) to improve society and the quality of human life. Projects may incorporate research including, but not limited to, aspects of ethical and social considerations, social justice, health disparities or bias in AI data.

The three winning proposals were selected from a pool of more than a dozen entries across the two universities, and each involves collaborators from both institutions. Click here to learn more.
