- Open Phil AI Fellowship
- Award Date:
- To provide scholarship support to five machine learning researchers over five years.
Open Philanthropy recommended a total of approximately $1,300,000 over five years in PhD fellowship support to five promising machine learning researchers that together represent the 2021 class of the Open Phil AI Fellowship. These fellows were selected from more than 397 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 focus area of potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence.
