The National Science Foundation has teamed up with Amazon and selected several university-led projects on artificial intelligence and machine learning systems that will be awarded up to $9.5 million in financial support.
NSF said Monday the 2022 recipients of the Program on Fairness in Artificial Intelligence in Collaboration with Amazon awards have potential AI/ML-focused initiatives that seek to address the technology’s unfairness and bias, establish human interaction principles, develop algorithm theoretical frameworks and enhance speech recognition tech, among others.
