AI Safety Needs Great Engineers

Thank you

 

P.S

I asked a few friends about this and one of them decided to apply himself, so anyway I think this is turning out well. :)

What Small Weird Thing Do You Fund?
  1. Inspiring
  2. May I ask where this leaves you? For example, are you going to try similar things in the future?
EA Online Learning Buddy Platform

how little people use (or are comfortable using) slack/discord

Even if they use slack/discord very little: They use a new [a new platform that doesn't exist yet and nobody ever used and everyone knows that nobody used] even less. No?

Facebook is the best alternative to make it easier for the people to find and start gaining members

I agree, and again, this is an advantage that a new platform will never have. (right?)

corresponding pages [...] pages idea

Do you mean "Facebook Group" (where you wrote "page")? If not - then I didn't understand, could you explain in other words?

Should I go straight into EA community-building after graduation or do software engineering first?

Another opinion: I think direct AI research kind of <exaggeration> can't be measured in money </exaggeration>.

Those people are missing, and AFAIK the AI safety orgs really want to hire people that are also aligned in their values, which is hard to find, and offering a high salary isn't enough to find more of those people.

Please note that even if you 100% agree with me, I do not (!) think this a good enough reason on its own to make a decision. Questions like personal fit which I asked above are also really important, and I don't think I know enough about you to actually recommend something specific yet

FYI, it's not impossible to take naps at some tech companies. This is me around 2014 working in an American corporation, I'd take a nap every second day more or less. I think the situation since then has become even more relaxed (no pun intended) : In my last job, I also took naps, and the bean bag was supplied directly by the Operations department.

  1. Would you tell us more about where you think you'd have better personal fit / what you'd wake up enthusiastic to do?
  2. Maybe there's some creative solution where the other student communities still come up even if you don't run them? (Perhaps you could delegate this and only mentor the community leaders, or something like that?)
Effective Developers: 1 Month Update

Thank you very much, this is very useful for me, specifically that you also added the culture/social norms which there's no way I'd guess myself

A Red-Team Against the Impact of Small Donations

Maybe we should collect the high-variance angel philanthropy ideas somewhere?
