Predicted AI alignment event/meeting calendar

Update 2020-06-21: Linda Linsefors made the AI Safety Google Calendar. I published How to make a predicted AI alignment event/meeting calendar, in case you want to make your own.

I kept this calendar up-to-date between August 2019 and April 2020. As I've left AI alignment (see also I'm leaving AI alignment – you better stay) and nobody has told me that they want me to keep this calendar up-to-date, I stop keeping it up-to-date.

If you find this calendar useful and would like it to continue to be kept up-to-date, please tell me in the comments or via PM. If you want to contribute to the community by maintaining this calendar, let me know and I'll share my process with you.

I update this every month. If you know of more events, please comment, PM or email me. The same goes for events that I listed, but which won't actually take place.

See also (I won't repeat here what is listed there):

Last updated (search for ‘UPDATED’): 2020-04-18

Next update will be published by: 2020-05-18 – If someone tells me that they find this calendar useful. See also the paragraph at the top.


Many of the events went virtual because of COVID-19.
