To centralize efforts, attract top talent, secure funding, and provide vital support, Higher Ground Labs launched the Progressive AI Lab

Our mission is to foster innovation, elevate research, and coordinate strategic priorities and best practices in the realm of AI for politics. The Lab serves as the hub for AI innovation within the Democratic and progressive landscape during the 2023-24 election cycle. 

Generative AI has become a powerful force driving transformation across industries, and its impact on politics cannot be underestimated. There is immense potential for generative AI to drive value, boost capability, and increase efficiency — and we are here to help unlock it.
