As more organizations deploy various forms of artificial intelligence (AI), ethical and policy issues surrounding AI and other computing technologies gain more attention. Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is aiming to take a leadership role in this emerging field, and a $10 million gift from global law firm K&L Gates LLP will help it achieve that goal.

The gift will establish the K&L Gates Endowment for Ethics and Computational Technologies, and the funds will support new faculty chairs as well as three new Presidential Fellowships for doctoral students; a biennial conference; the K&L Gates Presidential Scholarship Endowed Fund to recognize undergraduate students’ outstanding achievements and potential for further excellence; and an annual K&L Gates Prize to be awarded to a graduating CMU senior.
