As part of the work Nonlinear is doing to try and improve the state of AI safety research, we’re going to be talking with a range of researchers. One of our aims is to help people who are unsure about doing AI safety research figure out if this is a good fit for them. We’re planning on talking about things like:
- What skills are actually useful?
- What the day-to-day work is like?
- Misconceptions about the job
- And any other advice they have
We’d love to hear questions about doing AI safety research from people who are considering moving into the field but are still currently on the fence.
