The Future of Life Institute (FLI) – 2018 International AI Safety Grants Competition
INITIAL PROPOSAL — DUE FEBRUARY 25 2018, 11:59 PM Eastern Time
The focus of this RFP is on technical research or other projects enabling development of AI that is beneficial to society and robust in the sense that the benefits have some guarantees: our AI systems must do what we want them to do.
For maximal positive impact, this new grants competition thus focuses on Artificial General Intelligence, specifically research for safe and beneficial AGI. Successful grant proposals will either relate directly to AGI issues, or clearly explain how the proposed work is a necessary stepping stone toward safe and beneficial AGI.Visit Site
