Expanding Educational Opportunities

AI.Humanity will leverage Emory’s growing community of AI scholars as well as our strengths in ethics and the liberal arts to create an educational experience appropriate to the world in which we live: data-infused, curiosity-driven, and intensely collaborative.

At Emory, AI education goes beyond algorithms. AI.Humanity will promote AI literacy across campus, equipping all students with essential knowledge and skills to thrive in a technology-driven world, but it will also encourage serious consideration of the field’s ethical implications, bias, and fairness. 

Along with expanding Emory’s community of faculty with expertise in AI, the AI.Humanity initiative will work with schools campuswide to create new learning opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students in the classroom and beyond.

Education Highlights


The Center for Artificial Intelligence Learning will promote AI literacy across campus and provide co-curricular learning opportunities that equip the Emory community with skills needed to thrive in a technology-focused future.

The minor in artificial intelligence (AI) is open to undergraduate students in all disciplines who want a fundamental understanding of what AI is, how it can be used, its intended and unintended consequences and, most important, its interplay with human, societal and ethical issues such as fairness and bias.

“As the digital age advances, it’s becoming more and more important to have an understanding of what AI means, what it can and can’t do, how to interface with it, and when to be wary of it. As a university, we have a responsibility to be stewards of AI education not only for our students, but for our faculty and our community. At Emory, we believe in ‘AI for all.’ ”
