AI Existential Safety Community

We are building a community of AI researchers who want AI to be safe, ethical and beneficial.

On this page, you'll find a growing group of AI researchers keen to ensure that AI remains safe and beneficial, even if it eventually supercedes human ability on essentially all tasks.
