Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $150,000 to the Berkeley Existential Risk Initiative (BERI) for general support. BERI seeks to reduce existential risks to humanity, and collaborates with other long-termist organizations, including the Center for Human-Compatible AI at UC Berkeley. This funding is intended to help BERI establish new collaborations.

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