AIShield Fund


The AIShield Fund is being used to turn our AIShield program into reality.
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.

Every donor can provide a short testimonial with their donation which will show up on our donors page. If you haven’t already created a testimonial please consider the ability of your words to help others reach the same conclusion you did. If we all work together, the day when humanity adopts the increasingly powerful technologies of genetics, nanotechnology, and robotics/AI safely will arrive that much sooner.
