AI Watch

Welcome! This is a website to track people and organizations working on AI safety. See the code repository for the source code and data of this website.

This website is developed by Issa Rice and has been partially funded by Vipul Naik.

If you like (or want to like) this website and have money: the current funder doesn't want to continue funding this project. As a result, it is currently mostly sitting around. If you want to bring this site to the next level, contact Issa at riceissa@gmail.com. What you get: site improvements, recognition in the site credits. What the site needs: money.

If you have time and want experience building websites: this website is looking for contributors. If you want to help out, contact Issa at riceissa@gmail.com. What you get: little or no pay (this could change if the site gets funding; see previous paragraph), recognition in the site credits, privilege of working with me, knowledge of the basics of web development (MySQL, PHP, Git). What the site needs: data collection/entry and website code improvements.
