Applications are open for the Facebook Ethics in AI Research Initiative for the Asia Pacific 2020. To help support the need for thoughtful and groundbreaking academic research in specific areas, Facebook is supporting independent academic research work in the Asia Pacific in the field of AI ethics that takes into account different regional perspectives.
This research initiative will also complement Facebook’s efforts that bolster independent research being done in such areas, like supporting the TUM Institute for Ethics in AI and similar initiatives being supported by Facebook in other countries and regions, such as India and Latin America. This research initiative, through a request for proposals (RFP), will result in the production of papers from academic institutions, think tanks, and research organizations registered and operational across the Asia Pacific region.
Awards:- Proposals will be reviewed by a selection committee, and the entities whose proposals are selected will receive a research grant.
