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 2016, he is currently self-teaching in order to eventually do full time AI safety research. He likes board games, sailing, and blackberry pie.
