The past few years have seen rapid advances in machine learning, with new technologies achieving dramatic improvements in technical performance. But we can go beyond optimizing objective functions. By building AI systems with users in mind from the ground up, we open up entire new areas of design and interaction.
PAIR is devoted to advancing the research and design of people-centric AI systems. We're interested in the full spectrum of human interaction with machine intelligence, from supporting engineers to understanding everyday experiences with AI.
Our goal is to do fundamental research, invent new technology, and create frameworks for design in order to drive a human-centered approach to artificial intelligence. And we want to be as open as possible: we’re building open source tools that everyone can use, hosting public events, and supporting academics in advancing the state of the art.
