Colm Ó Riain donations made

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 as well as continued contributions from him (see his commits and the contract work page listing all financially compensated contributions to the site) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; if sharing a link to this site or any page on this site, please include the caveat that the data is preliminary (if you want to share without including caveats, please check with Vipul Naik). We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of March 2022. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on analytics.vipulnaik.com, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Our 2019 Fundraiser Review2020-02-13Colm Ó Riain Machine Intelligence Research Institute Machine Intelligence Research Institute Donee periodic updateAI safetyMIRI gives an update on its 2019 fundraiser. It goes into several reasons for the total amout of money raised in the fundraiser ($601,120) being less than the amounts raised in 2017 and 2018. Reasons listed include: (1) lower value of cryptocurrency than in 2017, (2) nondisclosed-by-default policy making it harder for potential donors to evaluate research, (3) changes to US tax law in 2018 that may encourage donation bunching, (4) fewer counterfactual matching opportunities for donations, (4) possible donor perception of diminishing returns on marginal donations, (5) variation driven by fluctuation in amounts from larger donors, (6) former earning-to-give donors moving to direct work, (7) urgent needs for funds expressed by MIRI to donors in previous years, causing a front-loading of donations in those years. The post ends by saying that although the fundraiser raised less than expected, MIRI appreciates the donor support and that they will be able to pursue the majority of their growth plans.
