Announcing the winners of the 2022 AI4AI Research request for proposals

By: Meta Research

In August, Meta launched the 2022 AI4AI Research request for proposals (RFP). Today, we’re announcing the winners of this award.

View RFP

The engineering stack and infrastructure at Meta enable us to build communities and connect billions of people around the world. To support our AI workloads at scale in a proactive way, we are adopting a different approach to the design of our AI stack and the infrastructure it runs on.

Through this RFP, we aim to partner with academics interested in using AI and ML approaches, such as reinforcement learning, Bayesian modeling, and graph representation learning to automate and improve the whole AI stack: from silicon to AI models’ output.

The RFP attracted 30 proposals from 28 universities and institutions around the world. Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit, and congratulations to the winners.
