Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $1,333,333 to Ought for general support. Ought conducts research on factored cognition, which Open Philanthropy considers relevant to AI alignment and to reducing potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence.
This follows Open Philanthropy's November 2019 support. While Open Philanthropy sees the basic pros and cons of this support similarly to what it has presented in past writeups on the matter, its ultimate grant figure was set by the aggregated judgments of the committee for effective altruism support, described in more detail here.
