Award Date:
To support the SERI MATS program.

Open Philanthropy recommended three grants totaling $1,538,000 to AI Safety Support to support their collaboration with Stanford Existential Risks Initiative (SERI) on SERI’s Machine Learning Alignment Theory Scholars (MATS) program. MATS is an educational seminar and independent research program that aims to provide talented scholars with talks, workshops, and research mentorship in the field of AI alignment, and connect them with in-person alignment research communities.

This grant will support the MATS program’s third cohort. This follows Open Philanthropy’s April 2022 support for the previous iteration of MATS, and falls within its focus area of potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence.
