AI for Good

AI for the Public Interest at Giving Tech Labs

AI4PI is the Research & Development Division at Giving Tech Labs, led by a world’s renowned Scientist: Dr. Ying Li.

We focus on exploring, under ethical principles, the practical application of Domain-Specific Knowledge Graphs and Knowledge extraction techniques as a Service to the Public, as well as the use of sound-related technologies to address complex issues in society.

AI data sciences for good

We have full-time positions for Knowledge Engineers, Ontology Analysts, Full-stack Software Developers and Data Scientists

Additionally, we offer fellowships for cohorts of 6 students who work for a minimum of 6 weeks and up to a year, creating prototypes of applied AI to systemic social issues in the area of Human Services.

Published Whitepapers and technology building blocks have immediate applicability to accelerate the pace at which social entrepreneurs, nonprofit organizations, government, and the private sector develop Technology for the Public Interest.

Apply now if you have a passion for helping to address real social problems through the use of software development, applied math, behavioral economics, data sciences, AI, and philosophy.

impact goals


Experiential learning opportunity for up to 24 undergrad and grad students to participate and graduate in the program every year. Students are compensated for the hours worked.

tangible AI

Targeting 50+ prototypes, and 5 or more trained AI modules for Public Interest Use, and 2 whitepaper publications per year, all focused on applied AI to solve real social issues.

open access

Library of open access AI modules and business models: Published in a GitHub Repository for Public Interest Tech, hosted by Giving tech Labs.


AI4PI will be documented as a program so that initiatives at different Universities such as Impact++ at University of Washington or CS for Good at Stanford can replicate the program with tech leaders such as Amazon, Cisco, Google, Microsoft, Tableau, and others as part of their “Public Interest Tech” programs.

AI as a service

The programs also serves as a pilot for potential models to offer AI Data Sciences as a Service for NGOs
