The AIShield Fund is being used to turn our
AIShield program into
Our first goal for this fund is to support our Interactive Friendly AI project.
Currently most Friendly AI research just produces papers and nothing to attract the public’s interest. Considering how much more money is being invested in nonfriendly AI than Friendly AI we think it would be worth spending some money on Interactive Friendly AI so we could 1) get the public’s interest and hopefully encourage more Friendly AI interest/research 2) help develop algorithms that will be applicable to future Friendly AI efforts.
Our project has dual goals: 1) education, for making a chatbot aimed at clarifying what the risks and benefits of AI are, and discussing the various approaches to them and related considerations, dispelling misconceptions, etc. 2) beefing up the directedness and credibility of the actual research to actually make an AI friendly.
