AI Alignment Awards is a contest calling for proposals for how to reliably understand and control advanced AI systems. Prizes are up to $100k; the new deadline is May 1. Learn more and apply at alignmentawards.com! 


AI has been rapidly progressing. Will this be beneficial or catastrophic? We think this will depend on our ability to reliably understand and control advanced AI systems – something researchers don’t yet know how to do, even with current models.

We’re running two contests to make progress on this problem:

  • The Goal Misgeneralization Contest (based on Langosco et al., 2021): AIs often learn unintended goals. Goal misgeneralization occurs when a reinforcement learning agent retains its capabilities out-of-distribution yet pursues the wrong goal. How can we prevent or detect goal misgeneralization?
  • The Shutdown Contest (based on Soares et al., 2015): People sometimes say, "If the AI is getting out of control, we'll just turn it off", but this may be a difficult technical challenge. As AI systems get more advanced, how can we design or train them such that they don’t try to stop operators from turning them off?


No prerequisites are required to participate. The new deadline to submit is May 1, 2023 11:59 ET. 


Ford Product Development Opportunity

Are you an Electrical Engineer, Computer Engineer, Computer Scientist or Innovation, Technology, and Design Major?
Come and meet us on Monday, February 27th at McArthur Engineering Building (MEA 220) from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM and learn about how we are developing the next generation of automotive electronics and products near you in Sunrise Florida. 

 This event will be this coming Monday in MEA 220. The presentation will take place starting at 4:30 but students can come early/late because they are going to also have informal networking conversations before and after the presentation from 4-6 PM. We are excited that this is a local opportunity for students in South Florida, and they are looking for students for both internships and full-time opportunities. Please feel free to stop by as well.

Become a GCL Scholar

My name is Minjeong (Sunny) Kim, and I am the director of the GCL Scholars Program, a scholarship program run by the Girls Computing League (GCL), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2015. Our program provides college students identifying as racial or socioeconomic minorities in STEM with a $750 scholarship and the opportunity to teach under-resourced elementary, middle, and high school students emerging STEM topics.

We are currently organizing in-person workshops at low-income schools in Miami, and are recruiting undergraduate students to become GCL Scholars who will teach these workshops with the help of our internal team.

We would greatly appreciate it if you could share this opportunity with your students at the University of Miami. We believe that this will serve as an inspiring experience for them as they teach the underprivileged students in their area and make a visible difference in their communities. Being a part of this scholarship program will be an impactful addition to the students' resumes.

The link to the application is HERE. The application is rolling until October 21st.
