Early this year, Stanford University - a forerunner in artificial intelligence (AI) research - launched the Human Centered Artificial Intelligence Institute (HAI). The institute wants to work towards AI that understands human language, emotions and behavior. The program is already backed by former Infosys CEO Vishal Sikka, former IBM CEO Sam Palmasino, former Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, and former Executive Chairman of Google Eric Schmidt.

In February, HAI opened applications for the inaugural cohort of research fellows. The deadline for the application is 15th April and is open to academics and researchers from around the world. As HAI is focused especially on bridging interdisciplinary gaps in research with the help of AI, the program is looking for researchers and academics who are doing work in the intersections of academia. This includes researchers working in the boundaries of AI and humanities, medicine, education, or physical or social sciences.  HAI is also encouraging outstanding researchers in traditional academic disciplines to apply. 

All HAI fellows will have the honour of being associated with the cutting-edge institute, as well as a traditional department at globally celebrated Stanford. They will be provided with the connections, nurturing advisors, and first-hand experience that all young researchers need, but rarely get. Although the position is officially one of an assistant professor, HAI fellows will have a low teaching load, but extensive access and interaction with undergraduate and graduate students. They will also get substantial support in conducting and publishing research.

Applicants with diverse backgrounds, interests, and a dedication to human centered technological progress are encouraged to apply before April 15.
