Hello. I am an AI alignment researcher who has a background in mental health and teaching. I originally trained to do therapy before deciding I could best help the world by working on AI alignment directly. I want to use my experience in mental health and productivity coaching to help young, aspiring alignment researchers be their best selves.
I want to emphasize mental wellness over mental health. Mental wellness is the effectiveness by which one can achieve their goals in relation to one's innate cognitive abilities. I think there is a lot of low-hanging fruit for each individual to better themselves; however, mental health services are designed to treat chronic problems. This service I will be providing aims to apply some of the techniques found in therapy to help already successful individuals be more successful, happier, and more effective.
Who this is for:
Effective altruists and aspiring AI alignment researchers.
Who this is not for:
People who want help with specific mental health diagnoses. For help with a mental health diagnosis (or suspected one), call your insurance company and ask what services they cover.
Therapy, 2 years
Tutoring math, physics, and computer science, 5 years
AI research, 3 years
What this productivity coaching/mentorship will cost:
Nothing! For now, this service is free.
