Center for AI Safety

Our Mission

Our mission is to reduce societal-scale risks from artificial intelligence.

Why we exist

CAIS exists to ensure the safe development and deployment of AI

AI offers the potential to build machines with human-like or superior intelligence. Today, we already have systems that can pass the bar exam, write code, fold proteins, and explain jokes. However, while these advances are exciting, they come with significant risks. We are committed to ensuring that AI's transformative potential is realized safely and responsibly for the benefit of humanity.

What we do

We achieve our mission through three core pillars:

  1. Advancing safety research
    CAIS conducts and funds AI research that is entirely focused on improving the safe development and deployment of AI. Through our research initiatives, we aim to identify and address AI safety issues before they become significant concerns.
  2. Building the safety research community
    AI safety research is being outpaced by the development of general AI technology. To address this gap, CAIS is growing the AI safety research field through funding, research infrastructure, and educational resources. We strive to create a thriving research ecosystem that will drive progress towards safe AI.
  3. Promoting safety standards
    To ensure that AI safety research has a real-world impact, CAIS collaborates with industry leaders, policymakers, and other labs to help implement the latest findings. Our goal is to build awareness and establish guidelines to enable the safe and responsible deployment of AI systems across all industries.
