Deadline To Apply for a 2017-2018 Fellowship Extended to January 31, 2017
We’re extending the deadline to apply for 17-18 Berkman Klein Center fellowships through our open call! The new deadline is Tuesday January 31, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
This week we announced the Berkman Klein Center’s participation in the Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence Fund, supporting interdisciplinary research to ensure that AI develops in a way that is ethical, accountable, and advances the public interest.
We want to give some extra time for people to apply to join our community of fellows in the coming year in light of the announcement and the exciting AI work ahead. Artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, and complex algorithms in general, fueled by big data and deep-learning systems, are quickly changing how we live and work. We look forward to working with people interested in exploring some of the issues detailed in the announcement, and invite people who think about these myriad challenges to consider our fellowship program as one potential avenue for community engagement. We and our partners at the MIT Media Lab are actively developing our joint efforts, and additional occasions for participation will emerge beyond this initial opportunity to apply for the Berkman Klein Center's fellowship program.
Alongside AI, we continue to welcome applications from people working on a broad range of research and activities related to Internet and society until the new January 31, 2017 deadline.
