The Schmidt Program announced that it will establish Schmidt Program that will foster AI and cyber-focused research and teaching. The program will serve as a hub for scholars and practitioners. The participants can work research and teaching and study the potential implications of AI.
The interdisciplinary program will help the participants better understand the technical concepts associated with AI and other emerging technologies and will help better interaction with the students from STEM community. The program is developed to help students of Jackson Institute understand how the cybersecurity and AI are changing the world.
The program is brought up by Schwab Charitable Fund through donation of $15.3 Million by Eirc and Wendy Schmidt. In March 2021, Eric and Wendy Schmidt donated $150 Million to Board Institute for conducting research study on biology using data science and AI for developing new solutions to combat diseases.
