Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $175,000 to Daniel Dewey, formerly Open Philanthropy’s program officer for potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence, to support his work on an AI alignment project and related field-building efforts. Daniel plans to use this funding to produce writing and reports summarizing existing research and investigating potentially valuable projects relevant to AI alignment, with the goal of helping junior researchers and others understand how they can contribute to the field.
