Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $17,000 to the publicity firm Press Shop to support expenses related to publicizing Professor Stuart Russell’s book Human Compatible: Artificial Intelligence and the Problem of Control. Russell is the director of the Center for Human-Compatible Artificial Intelligence (CHAI) at UC Berkeley. His book examines and proposes solutions to risks posed by advanced artificial intelligence.

This follows our August 2016 and November 2019 support to CHAI and falls within our focus area of potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence.
