Researchify helps motivated volunteers with AI skills to find interesting AI project opportunities in research-led nonprofits & charities, sometimes working alongside partner AI companies.  


Volunteers benefit from applied AI work experience with a nonprofit cause they care about. Nonprofits get help solving meaningful real-world problems from the next generation of AI experts.


Partners such as AI companies develop relationships with nonprofits, potentially with access to new use-cases & new model training data sets.


Researchify is in evaluation.
