We’re raising funds to implement our plans for next year! In 2019 we want to increase our focus on worst risks of astronomical suffering (s-risks) from advanced artificial intelligence.

    • Research: We plan to continue our research in the areas of AI-related decision theory and bargaining, fail-safe measures, and macrostrategy.
    • Research coordination: We plan to host a research workshop focused on preventing disvalue from AI, publish an updated research agenda, and continue our support and coaching of independent researchers and organizations.
    • Grantmaking: We plan to grow our grantmaking capacity by expanding our team with a dedicated grantmaking researcher.

We believe there is a strong case for supporting our work, if you prioritize reducing s-risks. Otherwise we recommend considering to donate elsewhere since our financial situation has markedly improved compared to previous years.
