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.

|AI: a Reason to Worry, and to Donate||2017-12-10||Jacob Falkovich||Jacob Falkovich||Machine Intelligence Research Institute Future of Life Institute Center for Human-Compatible AI Berkeley Existential Risk Initiative Future of Humanity Institute Effective Altruism Funds||Single donation documentation||AI safety||Falkovich explains why he thinks AI safety is a much more important and relatively neglected existential risk than climate change, and why he is donating to it. He says he is donating to MIRI because he is reasonably certain of the importance of their work on AI aligment. However, he lists a few other organizations for which he is willing to match donations up to 0.3 bitcoins, and encourages other donors to use their own judgment to decide among them: Future of Life Institute, Center for Human-Compatible AI, Berkeley Existential Risk Initiative, Future of Humanity Institute, and Effective Altruism Funds (the Long-Term Future Fund).|
