WASHINGTON, DC – The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation has renewed its grant for the CyberAI Project at the Center for Security and Emerging Technology (CSET) with an addition of $3 million for a total grant of $5 million over five years.
“I’m very grateful to the Hewlett Foundation for the grant renewal so that we can continue our research into issues at the intersection of artificial intelligence and cybersecurity,” said CyberAI Project Director and Senior Fellow John Bansemer. “And I’m proud of the CyberAI team and the work they’ve done to bring us to this point.”
Launched in January 2020, the CyberAI Project covers topics ranging from technical analysis of machine learning vulnerabilities to primers for policymakers to open-source investigations. CyberAI seeks to understand how advances in AI may alter the current state of cybersecurity and, conversely, how the cybersecurity of AI systems affects their safe and trusted development, fielding and operations
Founded in early 2019, CSET produces data-driven research at the intersection of security and technology, providing nonpartisan analysis to the policy community. A policy research organization within Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service, CSET is currently focusing on the effects of progress in AI, advanced computing and biotechnology.
