Public Humanities AI Lab

Our Work

Knowledge Base


We have a mission statement, "To develop community-engaged teaching practices that see campus and communities as co-learners of AI as a skill and co-teachers of what AI can be."

All PHAI folk are encouraged to put into their own words what that mission statement means to them, then to let that "restatement" (along with some help from others in the lab) guide them on their projects: to ask and answer new questions, to pioneer new applications or methods, or to oversee and maintain public initiatives.

We believe that this is the best way to make sure that the PHAI Lab continues to make meaningful changes in PHAI folks' and their communities' lives.
