This is an online portal with information on donations that were announced publicly (or have been shared with permission) that were of interest to Vipul Naik. The git repository with the code for this portal, as well as all the underlying data, is available on GitHub. All payment amounts are in current United States dollars (USD). The repository of donations is being seeded with an initial collation by Issa Rice (see his commits) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; please do not share this data without consulting with Vipul Naik. We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of December 2018.
If you hover over a cell for a given cause area and year, you will get a tooltip with the number of donees and the number of donations.
Note: Cause area classification used here may not match that used by donor for all cases.

|SIAI - An Examination||2011-05-02||Brandon Reinhart||LessWrong||Brandon Reinhart||Machine Intelligence Research Institute||Evaluator review of donee||AI risk||Post discussing initial investigation into the Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence (SIAI), the former name of Machine Intelligence Research Institute (MIRI), with the intent of deciding whether to donate. Final takeaway is that it was a worthy donation target, though no specific donation is announced in the post. See http://lesswrong.com/r/discussion/lw/5fo/siai_fundraising/ for an earlier draft of the post (along with a number of comments that were incorporated into the official version)|
