UPDATE: QUESTION HAS BEEN ANSWERED - https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/3kaojgsu6qy2n8TdC/pre-announcing-the-2023-open-philanthropy-ai-worldviews
This question is regarding the Future Fund’s AI Worldview Prize, and how the FTX collapse will affect this - in particular, how likely it is another funder will step in to award participants prizes.
I recently spent a couple weeks researching AI Risk arguments from first principles and was planning to spend the next five weeks continuing to do research and writing a submission for this contest.
Considering the large prize pool (up to 1.5 million dollars) and obvious importance of this issue to EA and longtermism, I am sure there are many others in this situation as well.
It seems possible that in order to not disrupt the work of researchers like myself, and to replace rewards for prize participants who have already submitted, another large funder such as Open Philanthropy may want to step in to partially or fully place this prize.
My question is:
How likely is something like this is to occur, so that I can plan accordingly?
Of course an official answer would be ideal, but any thoughts or input is appreciated. Thanks!
