@case I meant more like getting a random person to sign up and watching over their shoulder. Analytics is already something though, definitely has to be studied at as well

Seems like "Inadequate understanding of user needs, leading to ineffective solutions." could be addressed by user testing. I think it's a necessary step before implementing anything

Are you planning to blog in Russian? I love the idea, just want to see a more concrete plan for execution to assess whether it's worth funding

Love to see this grant! Would be excited to contribute to an extension of this grant if first 5 weeks seem promising to Rob

If LTFF were another regrantor with the 3x boost to any donation, that would have been so awesome. I mean if you agreed to add every project that you are planning to fund publicly here, so that everyone can see what is funded and hopefully get some report when the project is finished.

To be clear, I'm still donating to LTFF until matching funds last, it's too good of a deal it seems

Have you tried Manifold? What do you want your app to solve that Manifold doesn't?

I think it would make sense to have a higher goal for prizes actually

I heard great things about Esben, the previous hackathon went great it seems, and the price to run more rounds is relatively low. I'm excited to see this application and hope it's going to get funded fast

@KabirKumar kudos for the initiative! I hope you'll get a lot of high quality feedback and engagement from AI Safety community. I think it should be an easy "approve" for the regrantors

I wanted to play more of the game, it seemed engaging =) Please sell me a subscription

I can't see usefulness of neuron naming to AI Safety though to be honest. Can't the network generate the explanation itself? Otherwise: how do you score the explanation suggested by the user?

@AntonMakiievskyi There is still time left before your project is going to be evaluated. As an investor, I'd really love to see it succeed and rewarded

@ValentinGolev I don't quite understand what is "internal group-markets". When investing, I was personally excited to see the way to bet on Manifold from inside telegram channel

I encouraged Alexander applying here, based on that some people in Nonlinear Networked like his application and that funding goal is quite low. I don't think 40k budget would be a good bet, but 6k could be worth a try. I'm interested to learn what regrantors think about it

I'll offer 1000$ donation in hope of others adding to it

My biggest concern is that scaling the org too fast could be detrimental, and I have no idea how to judge it besides deferring to people with similar experiences

If scaling Apollo's output is, in fact, limited only by cash - this seems like an amazing grant. At least as good as funding most of the independent folks.

The one goal that may lead to significant impact in my opinion is : "Train and cultivate AI Safety scholars in Africa" - if it has a chance of scouting people who can contribute to "AI notkilleveryoneism". Not sure if establishing a lab in Africa is the most efficient path to that. Probably scholarships or targeted reach out would be more effective

I'd love if such a project could happen, but I find it hard to believe it's possible.

I see how skill tree may be developed for a frequently sought after and well described skill, e.g. "making a pitch deck", or "writing a SQL query".

"Alignemnt" appear to not be that well defined yet

I appreciate this application and encouraged Can applying here based on his application to Nonlinear Network. I think being accepted to ARENA is a strong signal, and I would like to see proactive independent researchers being encouraged in their pursuits (by money or otherwise)

I'd like to see more elaboration on the budget, e.g. for how long do you see yourself working independently, how much do you expect to need per month, and what is going to happen if you don't receive funding.

Jacques has already produced an impressive amount of work, and some people in Nonlinear Network were excited to see him funded.

I don't feel qualified to assess the importance of the current project proposal, it would be really nice if more informed people commented on this.

I'll offer 1000$ donation as a token of appreciation and hope to attract more attention to this application.

  • I'm impressed by Lucy's background

  • Some people in Nonlinear Network funding round were excited for Lucy to be funded

  • I want promissing people not to be held back by shortage of money for day to day expenses

    So, I'm upvoting this application and offering 1000$ donation to provide more visibility to it

Jeffrey, thank you for aiming to improve EAGx!

Do I understand correctly, that it's not an EA related art, but general art that would aim to make an experience of attendees better? If so, I think current funders of the conference are good people to reach out to for funding: what did they say?

I'd be excited to fund EA inspired art, since I share Austin's opinion that EA could be better in this regard

As a note, I'd be more willing to fund more concrete expenses, once you have a budget for the exhibition, funding it all "in general", since it's hard to gauge how much money would be needed and what they would buy.

Ambitious goal and a clear plan! I loved the analysis of Yale in the google doc. I hope you'll get funded

Could you provide some cost benefit analysis here? E.g. how many children were treated based on the 35k the ACT spent last year, and how did you measure the effect of the treatment?

+1 to @Austin. I'd be more excited to see it as an investment instead of a grant

@josephbloom, would you stop this project if you get hired by DeepMind, or you're expecting to continue it as a part of the job?

How is this different from a default manifold market?
