Leading AI to serve humanity

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are transforming nearly every area of human endeavor—bringing tremendous opportunities as well as profound ethical implications and societal impacts.

The AI.Humanity Initiative brings together the full intellectual power of Emory University to shape the AI revolution to better human health, generate economic value, and promote social justice. 

By hiring and nourishing a community of scholars, creating new educational opportunities, and pursuing the ethical use of AI, Emory will lead the way in realizing the potential of these revolutionary technologies to improve the human condition and advance our world.
