- Unrestricted gift to support Professor Dan Boneh in the department of Computer Science.
The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a gift of $100,000 to Stanford University to support machine learning security research led by Professor Dan Boneh and his PhD student, Florian Tramer. Machine learning security probes worst-case performance of learned models. Open Philanthropy considers work in this area a promising way of ensuring that models are “doing the right thing” in a generalizable way.
This gift falls within Open Philanthropy's focus area of potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence.
