This Annual Report reflects the research, activities, and impact of Stanford HAI between September 2021 to August 2022


Educating the Leaders of Today and Tomorrow

HAI’s growing portfolio of programs helps high-impact decision-makers and emerging leaders to pursue cutting-edge research, create useful and responsible AI, and respond thoughtfully to the societal and ethical implications of global AI.

Reaching Faculty at Stanford and Beyond

During AY 2021-22, HAI enrolled more than 7,000 people across its education programs, including 50 faculty from Stanford and other institutions who were trained in matters related to human-centered AI.

Special Initiatives

Stanford AI+Health Conference

December 8-9, 2021, was the largest AI+Health Conference in Stanford’s history in terms of audience size and faculty participation, with more than 150 Stanford faculty presenting. During this online event, Stanford HAI, the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine & Imaging (AIMI) center, and the Center for Continuing Medical Education (CME) convened experts and leaders from academia, industry, government, and clinical practice to explore emerging issues related to AI’s impact on healthcare.

Stanford Art + Tech Salon

Stanford Art + Tech Salon is a quarterly get-together for affiliated artists, researchers, scholars, and students who work at the intersection of arts and tech to share work and engage in discussions. Events are produced through a partnership with Stanford Arts. AY 2021-2022 events included a spotlight on Jeremy Bailenson and Cyan DeVeaux’s work creating classes and new worlds in VR; Lark Alder and Khuyen Le on Queer Technology and Speculative Design; and Ge Wang and Kunwoo Kim on Music, Computing and Design.

For Current Leaders

Government Education

HAI now offers six distinct programs targeting more than 100 government executives and policymakers. In addition to the Congressional Boot Camp, four additional training programs provided opportunities for executives across federal government bodies in the U.S. and internationally to learn about the latest AI trends and issues.

Executive Education

5,000 executives and professionals enrolled in HAI’s Executive and Professional Education offerings during the academic year. Highlights included the launch of an invitation-only CEO Roundtable Series and a new custom Executive Education program that gives organizations the option to choose among 100 AI topics. In December 2021, Journalist Day at HAI focused on AI Imperatives for 2022. The education team also provided faculty training on “Teaching AI and Ethics: Lessons from Stanford’s Embedded EthiCS Team” for the Stanford Educational Partnership for Internationalizing Curriculum (EPIC) Community College Faculty Fellowship.

Three-week AI4ALL program
In the summer of 2022, 30+ high school students participated in a three-week AI4ALL program where they learned about AI through lectures, mentorship, and hands-on research projects.

For Future Leaders

A group of high school students attended a three-week live virtual program called Stanford AI4ALL to get immersed in AI through a combination of lectures, hands-on research projects, and mentoring activities. HAI also offered two courses in Stanford’s Pre-collegiate Summer Institutes: Artificial Intelligence and Fundamentals of Augmented Reality.

In the spring, HAI’s “Visions of the Future” online course reached 500 global students, covering the future impact of AI, as well as AI and the metaverse, healthcare, and blockchain.
