Data & Society Research Institute is seeking a full-time Researcher or Postdoctoral Scholar to join the growing AI on the Ground Initiative and to lead our AI Safety International Casebook project.
About the Initiative: AI on the Ground
The AI on the Ground Initiative (AIGI) conducts ethnographically-oriented research to inform AI design, implementation, and governance. We are a multi-disciplinary team of researchers who investigate the risks, harms, and possibilities of AI within diverse social contexts, including medicine, farming, retail, and governmental and humanitarian programs. We start with the conviction that the impact of AI systems and policies can only be fully understood by engaging with people on the ground whose lives and work are directly implicated–from government and business leaders, to scientists and engineers, to community activists and vulnerable groups. To realize AI’s social benefits, it is necessary to understand its risks and potential harms to people, communities, and institutions through empirically grounded research rather than speculation.
