An intervention to shape policy dialogue, communication, and AI research norms for AI safety

Hi Kyle, I think that it's worth us all putting effort into being friendly and polite on this forum, especially when we disagree with one another. I didn't find your first comment informative or polite, and just commented to explain why I down-voted it.

An intervention to shape policy dialogue, communication, and AI research norms for AI safety

Looks like DeepMind have gone with "AI risk" and classified that into "misuse and unintended consequences", among other ethical challenges. See https://deepmind.com/applied/deepmind-ethics-society/

An intervention to shape policy dialogue, communication, and AI research norms for AI safety

The career questions thread

Thanks, Ryan. Do you have a specific starting recommendation?

i.e. best starting point if you think data engineering will suit you more than web development? (e.g. learn python)

Or quickest way to test out if you're going to like the data science track? (e.g. start with a stats course rather than the coding)

The career questions thread

Are there any reasons why a humantiies graduate considering trying out software engineering ought not consider data science instead?

i.e. if you have a non-technical background and would initially by doing online courses with the aim of applying to a bootcamp if you liked it / seemed to be progressing well.

Thanks for sharing this, Ryan. I would have missed it otherwise (obviously not following the right people on social media). Looking forward to reading it! Hopefully see you at another CSER seminar soon.
