AI2050 Project

Through this fellowship, Karina is working on the problem of how to use insights from artificial intelligence (AI) systems to aid human learning and knowledge discovery. The goal is to unlock the potential of AI-assisted discoveries—be them in science, medicine, or mathematics, for example—in ways that are sensitive to human epistemic capacities and limitations across a variety of contexts. Karina’s project will draw on work from a range of fields including philosophy, psychology, history, education, and AI research.
