Upcoming AI safety people

This page tracks people who are currently training to work on AI safety, but have not held positions at organizations or published work. The idea is to stay “one step ahead” by knowing which people will likely enter the field. Since the data here is not intended to be permanent, it is simply stored on this web page rather than being entered into the database.
