I'd suggest a city group that aims to attract students from each of the universities in the city, as well as other non-students. Hopefully this would help to build a critical mass for the group more easily, as well as connecting people from different places. As an aside, I'll be in Pitttsburgh between September and December – see you there!

CAIF is a new charitable entity – backed by an initial endowment of $15 million – whose mission is to support research that will improve the cooperative intelligence of advanced AI for the benefit of all humanity. The role of Chief Operating Officer will be critical for the scaling and smooth running of the foundation, both now and in the years to come.
