Nate Soares 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 December 2019. 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.

2018 Update: Our New Research Directions2018-11-22Nate Soares Machine Intelligence Research Institute Machine Intelligence Research Institute Donee periodic updateAI safetyMIRI executive director Nate Soares explains the new research directions being followed by MIRI, and how they differ from the original Agent Foundations agenda. The post also talks about how MIRI is being cautious in terms of sharing technical details of its research, until there is greater internal clarity on what findings need to be developed further, and what findings should be shared with what group. The post ends with guidance for people interested in joining the MIRI team to further the technical agenda. The post is referenced by Effective Altruism Funds in their grant write-up for a $40,000 grant to MIRI, at https://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/far-future/payouts/3JnNTzhJQsu4yQAYcKceSi The nondisclosure-by-default section of the post is also referenced by Ben Hoskin in https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/BznrRBgiDdcTwWWsB/2018-ai-alignment-literature-review-and-charity-comparison#MIRI__The_Machine_Intelligence_Research_Institute and also cited by him as one of the reasons he is not donating to MIRI this year (general considerations related to this are described at https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/BznrRBgiDdcTwWWsB/2018-ai-alignment-literature-review-and-charity-comparison#Openness in the same post). Issa Rice also references these concerns in his donation decision write-up for 2018 at https://issarice.com/donation-history#section-3 but nonetheless decides to allocate $500 to MIRI
