2023 Senior Fellows

The AI2050 Senior Fellowship supports established leaders who have made significant contributions to their field. Senior Fellows are highly accomplished individuals working on approaches for increasing the beneficial promise of AI. The breadth of their collective projects showcases the range of work that will be critical to answer the AI2050 motivating question.

A new class of Senior Fellows is awarded each year. Senior Fellows receive a 2-year award to work on specific projects that advance the AI2050 motivating question. Their projects are often ambitious, hard-to-fund through traditional sources, interdisciplinary, and innovative.

Early Career Fellows

The AI2050 Early Career Fellowship is an enabling fellowship to encourage postdoctoral and pre-tenure researchers to pursue bold and ambitious work on hard problems in AI, which often is multidisciplinary and typically hard to fund. Each year, approximately 10-20 early career researchers around the world are selected through a rigorous process. Early Career Fellows receive an award to support a two year project that advances their research and receive non-monetary support, such as connections to stakeholders to help them advance their research and amplify its results.
