AI Safety Support
The ultimate mission is to help the world. But the more specific aim of this initiative is to reduce existential risk from advanced AI by providing support for anyone trying to help work on the project. Even more specifically, we are mainly helping new and aspiring AI Safety researchers, because we think that helping this group is a neglected problem.
We are a new initiative with a growing team. Contact us if you want to join.
I am passionate about working on AI safety and enabling others to do so as well. In 2019 I was a participant in the third AI Safety Camp where I was able to build some great relationships and experiences. Following this I helped organise the fourth AI Safety Camp, which was a challenging but rewarding experience. This has inspired me to continue working to help others contribute to the field.
I learned about Effective Altruism in 2015, around the time when I was finishing my Physics PhD, and looking for what to do next. I was soon fascinated by the AI Safety problem. However, I found that getting started by myself was difficult, so in November 2017 I found some like-minded friends, and over the next months, we developed and hosted the first AI Safety Camp. During the summer of 2018, I was a research intern at MIRI, learning a great deal about the state of the art of AI Safety. During the summer of 2019 I started organizing events again, and this has been my main focus ever since. I believe I can do a lot of good in this role.
