David Denkenberger 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.

Cost-Effectiveness of Foods for Global Catastrophes: Even Better than Before? (GW, IR)2018-11-19David Denkenberger Effective Altruism ForumDavid Denkenberger Alliance to Feed the Earth in Disasters Review of current state of cause areaAlternative foods|AI safetyAs part of research funded by Effective Altruism Grants, Denkenberger updates his estimate of a year ago at https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/7XRjb3Tx8j36AcBpb/should-we-be-spending-no-less-on-alternate-foods-than-ai-now (GW, IR) comparing alternative foods and AI safety. His new estimate is that alternative foods give between 3 and 300 times more return for the 100 millionth dollar invested than AI safety does. The author thanks Ozzie Gooen for developing Guesstimate, Oxford Prioritisation Project for the AI model, and Joshua Pearce, Anders Sandberg and Owen Cotton-Barratt for reviewing content. The work is not an official publication of ALLFED, but should be understood as somewhat linked because of Denkenberger being the driving force behind ALLFED
