What I’ll be doing at MIRI 2019-11-12 Evan Hubinger LessWrong Machine Intelligence Research Institute, OpenAI Evan Hubinger, Paul Christiano, Nate Soares Successful hire AI safety Evan Hubinger, who has just finished an internship at OpenAI with Paul Christiano and others, is going to start work at MIRI. His research will be focused on solving inner alignment for amplification. Although MIRI's research policy is one of nondisclosure-by-default [1] Hubinger expects that his own research will be published openly, and that he will continue collaborating with researchers at institutions like OpenAI, Ought, CHAI, DeepMind, FHI, etc. In a comment, MIRI Executive Director Nate Soares clarifies that "my view of MIRI's nondisclosed-by-default policy is that if all researchers involved with a research program think it should obviously be public then it should obviously be public, and that doesn't require a bunch of bureaucracy. [...] the policy is there to enable researchers, not to annoy them and make them jump through hoops." Cross-posted from the AI Alignment Forum; original is at [2]
