I'm Buck Shlegeris, I do research and outreach at MIRI, AMA

How likely would it be for someone decently good at computer science and AI, graduating from a decent computer science program (UT Austin, CS program is within the top 10) to have a significant impact on AI safety? (This pertains to myself, as I'm a high school student choosing a college and major right now) Any "sales pitch" as to why I should specifically work in AI safety (not just why AI safety is a problem), instead of donating or working on some other cause? Thanks!
