Funding Opportunity

Ethics and Artificial Intelligence Research Grant

Provided jointly by the Center for Bioethics & Medical Humanities and I.AIM, this award will fund research in bioethics and artificial intelligence (AI).

The award will provide funding for pilot/exploratory projects that explore bioethics problems associated with any type of AI in healthcare. Projects can address issues from conception, development, testing, and implementation of AI and can be normative or empirical work. The aim is to support preliminary work that will provide a foundation for obtaining funding to support larger research projects.
