- Centre for Governance of AI
- Award Date:
- For general support.
Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $450,000 to the Centre for the Governance of AI (GovAI), via the Berkeley Existential Risk Initiative, for general support. GovAI intends to use these funds to support the visit of two senior researchers and a postdoc researcher.
This falls within Open Philanthropy's focus area of potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence. 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 its committee reviewing the grant proposal.
