Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $705,000 over two years to the Berkeley Existential Risk Initiative (BERI) to support continued work with the Center for Human-Compatible AI (CHAI) at UC Berkeley. This includes one year of support for machine learning researchers hired by BERI, and two years of support for CHAI.

This follows our July 2017 and January 2019 support and falls within our focus area of potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence.
