Christian Pinedo joined Stanford as an Education Program Coordinator with the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered AI (HAI) in 2021. He works to support one of HAI's core missions: making AI education equitable. Coordinating with faculty and expert practitioners, Christian assists in the creation of multidisciplinary programs for both high-impact decision makers and emerging leaders. He collaborates with the diverse communities surrounding Artificial Intelligence to pursue cutting-edge research, create useful and responsible AI, and respond thoughtfully to the societal and ethical implications of global AI. He believes that the quality of any intellectual endeavor is improved when participants reflect diversity in the broadest sense, including gender, ethnic and socioeconomic background, but also intellectual, cultural and political perspectives.
