The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) said it will invest $10.9 million in research for the development of user-safe artificial intelligence (AI) through the Safe Learning-Enabled Systems program.

NSF, the Open Philanthropy research and grantmaking foundation, and the Good Ventures philanthropic foundation partnered on the initiative to cultivate basic research leading to the design and deployment of safe and resilient computerized learning-enabled systems, including AI.

NSF director Sethuraman Panchanathan said, "NSF's commitment to studying how we can guarantee the safety of AI systems sends a clear message to the AI research community: we consider safety paramount to the responsible expansion and evolution of AI."
