fb_img_1521954019948My name is Nora Belrose, and I’m an effective altruist and AI safety researcher. This blog isn’t currently being updated— I wrote the posts at a time when I believed that politics was one of the most effective methods for doing good in the world. I now think there are much better ways of doing good— in particular, I think reducing existential risks through non-political means is orders of magnitude more effective in expectation.
