Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $38,920,000 over three years to the Center for Security and Emerging Technology, via Georgetown University, for general support. CSET is a think tank, incubated by our January 2019 support, dedicated to policy analysis at the intersection of national and international security and emerging technologies. This funding is intended to augment our original support for CSET, particularly for its work on security and artificial intelligence.1

This follows our January 2021 support and falls within our focus area of potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence.
