Human-Centered AI: Building Trust, Democracy and Human Rights by Design
"Part of the value of the human rights framework stems from the fact that these norms already exists under international human rights law. The texts that make up this body of law have been negotiated and agreed to internationally. Human rights norms are particularly well suited for our globalized, digitized context, specifically because of their universal applicability."

A Course in Bayesian Statistics
This class is the first of a two-quarter sequence that will serve as an introduction to the Bayesian approach to inference, its theoretical foundations and its application in diverse areas. The instructors are Persi Diaconis, Chiara Sabatti and Wing Wong. Following is a tentative outline of lectures. As we move through the quarter, it will become more precise and reflect, week by week, the material actually covered in class.

Housing Planning at Stanford
Today, all undergraduate students are guaranteed four years of on-campus housing. With the completion of 2,020 additional graduate student beds in Escondido Village in 2020, approximately 75 percent of graduate students will be able to live in university housing.

When EVGR is complete, Stanford’s total on and near-campus housing stock will total 17,900 units and student beds. In addition to faculty housing on campus, almost 1,000 rental units are available to faculty and staff in Palo Alto, Menlo Park and Los Altos, including 180 units of below market rate housing for residents who meet affordable housing criteria. While many of these residential communities are open to the public, preference is given to Stanford affiliates at rental rates that are subsidized by the university.

In our application for the 2018 General Use Permit, we propose adding 3,150 more on-campus rental units and student beds. We anticipate that 900 of those beds will be for graduate students, and would qualify as affordable under Santa Clara County’s General Plan. In addition, we plan to build 550 new apartments for faculty and staff.
