- Open Phil AI Fellowship
- Award Date:
- To provide scholarship support to eight machine learning researchers over five years.
The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a total of approximately $2,325,000 over five years in PhD fellowship support to eight promising machine learning researchers that together represent the 2019 class of the Open Phil AI Fellowship. These fellows were selected from more than 175 applicants for their academic excellence, technical knowledge, careful reasoning, and interest in making the long-term, large-scale impacts of AI a central focus of their research. This falls within Open Philanthropy's work on potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence.
