tl;dr: Contribute to aisafety.info by answering questions about AI Safety from October 6th to October 9th. Participation in hackathons is the basis for applying to future fellowships, and there are prizes to be won by the top entrants. Register here and see the participant guide here.
The event will run from Friday October 6th, 7am UTC, to Monday October 9th 2023, 7am UTC. See here for the full schedule. You are invited to participate throughout whichever parts of those days fit your schedule.
Participants will choose questions to answer for aisafety.info, and work on these answers in google docs. Collaboration on the event will take place on Discord as well as on gather.town. I’ll be online for most of those three days to lead the event and answer any questions. See here for more details.
Yes! There will be monetary prizes of $1000, $600, $300, and $100 for the top four contributors, and $200 for the participant judged to be the most helpful to others.
The main criteria we’ll use to select winners are submitting good articles and making valuable edits to articles in progress. Contributions will also count towards applications for any future fellowships we run.
You can write or edit articles in any contiguous three-day period between today and Oct 9th–for example, from the 2nd to the 5th.
Stampy’s AI Safety Info is an interactive FAQ started by Rob Miles that aims to be the best one-stop source of information about AI existential safety, gathering summaries and links on each of hundreds of subtopics.
If you want to help out in some other way, aisafety.info welcomes donations (details soon), volunteer editors, and volunteer coders.
If you have questions about the event or anything else, feel free to ask in the comments or message me here or on Discord (Siao).
