The AI Safety Research Program is a four-month-long project bringing together talented students and junior researchers with a deep interest in long-term AI safety research. We aim to create a creative and inspiring research environment helping the participants work on AI safety research problems, gain a better understanding of the AI alignment field, and improve their research skills.
The program consists of an online preparation phase focused on collecting and discussing research proposals; a 5-day workshop for brainstorming, refining the project ideas and discussing them with guest researchers from FHI Oxford and MIRI; a structured 2-month online work phase with mentoring; concluded by an 8-day intensive co-working retreat in Prague and more remote work on finalizing papers, reports etc. The program runs from Oct 2019 to Feb 2020.
