Last summer I delivered a “field report” after attending the Human Level AI multi-conference. In mid-August of this year I attended the Learning-by-doing AI Safety Workshop (LBDAISW? I’ll just call it “the workshop” hereafter) and the Technical AI Safety Unconference (TAISU) at the EA Hotel in Blackpool. So in a similar spirit to last year I offer you a field report of some highlights and what I took away from the experience.
I’ll break it down into 3 parts: the workshop, TAISU, and the EA Hotel.
