We (Zvi Mowshowitz, Vladimir Slepnev and Paul Christiano) are happy to announce that the AI Alignment Prize is a success. From November 3 to December 31 we received over 40 entries representing an incredible amount of work and insight. That's much more than we dared to hope for, in both quantity and quality.
In this post we name six winners who will receive $15,000 in total, an increase from the originally planned $5,000.
We're also kicking off the next round of the prize, which will run from today until March 31, under the same rules as before.
