Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $1,111,000 over three years to UC Berkeley to support research relevant to potential risks from artificial intelligence and machine learning, led by Jacob Steinhardt. This funding will allow Professor Steinhardt to fund students to work on robustness, value learning, aggregating preferences, and other areas of machine learning.

This falls within our focus area of potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence.
