About the Author

This website was created by Michael Cohen, and he has to write this section in the third person because society apparently demands it. After taking a few ethics classes at Yale and learning about Givewell.org, he started considering whether humanity faced any serious extinction threats, and he stumbled upon the field of AI Safety. As of 2017, he is a master’s student in computer science at Australian National University, doing research with Marcus Hutter’s group. He likes board games, sailing, and blackberry pie.
