New AI Safety Grant for PhDs and Post-Docs

My name is Risto Uuk and I work at the Future of Life Institute, a nonprofit that works to reduce risks from powerful technologies. We have recently expanded our work to Europe and have just launched a grants program that may be of interest to researchers across the EU. The grant program is open to everyone and although the grant amounts are advertised in dollars, there are no geographic limitations on either applicants or host universities. 

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Vitalik Buterin Fellowships in AI Existential Safety for PhD and postdoctoral students. The Fellowships will support research that analyses the ways in which artificial intelligence could cause an existential catastrophe as well as research that serves to reduce this risk. For a more precision definition, see this page. The website for our grants programme can be found here.

Please spread the word and encourage promising individuals to apply!

In case of questions, please direct them toward our Grants Manager: andrea@futureoflife.org. If you are interested in our EU AI policy work, you are welcome to contact us as well: mark@futureoflife.org / risto@futureoflife.org
