Total Funding to Date



  • Yang Wang
  • Yun Huang

Associate Professors Yang Wang and Yun Huang are spearheading a project in collaboration with experts from the University of California-Berkeley and Stanford University to help ensure emerging artificial intelligence (AI) development proceeds in a democratic manner that is mindful of underserved groups. PhD student Tanusree Sharma is also leading this initiative as a critical component of her dissertation work.

The iSchool team will be working with teenagers, older adults, people with disabilities, people of color, and people from the Global South (broadly comprising countries in the regions of Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia, and Oceania). The researchers will develop a technical infrastructure that includes a ChatGPT plugin directly supporting Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) mechanisms. DAOs enable decision-making processes to be governed and executed in a decentralized manner, without the need for a central authority or intermediaries.
