Université de Montréal — Research Project on Artificial Intelligence

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of CAN$266,200 ($210,552 at the time of conversion) to the Université de Montréal to support a research project investigating AI consciousness and moral patienthood. The research will be conducted in collaboration with Mila and the Future of Humanity Institute. This funding will support post-docs and students studying the topic, as well as publications and workshops.

This falls within our focus area of potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence.
