AI ethics: Working towards building an AI that will not embarrass itself at a mid-tier dinner party in San Francisco.

AI alignment: Advancing capabilities while feeling vaguely guilty about it. 

Accountability in AI: Ensuring AI doesn't interfere with our ability to create sinecures. 

AI we can trust:  Ensuring AI doesn't discredit the linguistics work of Noam Chomsky. 

AI policy: A long march through the institutions for the purpose of solving a problem that will kill us in five years.

Decentralized AI: The token is totally necessary and going to the moon.
