- Fei-Fei Li has been a driving force in A.I. for over 20 years, leading Stanford University’s A.I. lab and advocating for ethical use of the technology
- She advises President Biden on the need for more public-sector funding for A.I. in healthcare and co-founded AI4ALL to push for more diversity in the field of A.I.
- In her memoir, “The Worlds I See,” she shares her journey from challenging beginnings in China to becoming a leading figure in A.I., inspiring others along the way.
In a groundbreaking move, Fei-Fei Li, renowned as the “Godmother of A.I.,” has been appointed to lead ethical technology development at Stanford University. As the Co-Director of the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI), Li is poised to shape the future of A.I. and its impact on society.
With a stellar career in artificial intelligence and computer vision, Li is a force to be reckoned with in the tech industry. As a co-founder of AI4ALL, an organization dedicated to increasing diversity and inclusion in A.I., she has demonstrated her commitment to ethical and responsible A.I. development.
Now, in her new role at Stanford, Li will lead efforts to ensure that A.I. technologies are developed with ethical considerations at the forefront. This is a critical and timely initiative, as A.I. continues to evolve and integrate into various aspects of society, from healthcare to transportation to finance.
Under Li’s leadership, Stanford’s HAI aims to address the ethical, societal, and policy implications of A.I. and to foster interdisciplinary collaboration in the development of A.I. technologies. This endeavor reflects a growing recognition within the tech community of the need to prioritize ethical considerations in A.I. development.
As the world looks to A.I. for solutions to complex challenges, it is crucial that the development of these technologies remains rooted in ethical principles. With Fei-Fei Li at the helm, Stanford University is poised to lead the way in shaping the future of ethical A.I. development.
