Dear Colleagues,

The inaugural MICRON-NISTH Responsible AI Grant was launched on 6 February and closed on 24  February 2020. Opened to the NTU academic community, this seed grant of $10,000 is awarded to each team to develop proof-of-concepts, prototypes, conceptualisations, experiments, user studies and/or other initiatives that allows progression to a next phase. Over the three weeks, we have received numerous highly interesting interdisciplinary proposals on Responsible AI. 

The following proposals are awarded $10,000 each after evaluation and comments from both  the Micron and NISTH panel, with a special grant of $5,000to the students’ proposal to further develop their ideas.

The Micron-NISTH Grant supports seed funding for interdisciplinary research on responsible AI. The grant seeks to spark ideas by leveraging both NISTH and Micron networks to support the conceptualisation, prototyping and pre-testing of problem statements.
Please join me in congratulating the successful Micron-NISTH Grant teams.  We look forward to the teams making impactful achievements from their respective projects.

Thank you.
