Stanford University
Award Date:
To support research on AI safety and alignment.

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $1,500,000 over three years to Stanford University to support research led by Professor Percy Liang on AI safety and alignment.

This follows Open Philanthropy’s 2017 support for Professor Liang’s research and falls within its focus area of potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence.
