Stanford University — Percy Liang Planning Grant

Stanford University
Award Date:
To support artificial intelligence research led by Percy Liang.

The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a planning grant of $25,000 to Professor Percy Liang at Stanford University. This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence, and was awarded to enable Professor Liang to spend significant time engaging in Open Philanthropy's investigation process to determine whether to provide his research group with a much larger grant.

Open Philanthropy did end up awarding that larger grant to support research on artificial intelligence safety and alignment, written about in more detail here.
