2: UC Berkeley Effective Altruism is holding an undergraduate AI Safety Distillation Contest, ie can you write up good comprehensible summaries of AI safety topics? First prize is $2,500, click the link for more.
3: I have to hand it to all of you - you did an incredible job rating book reviews, and my hare-brained plan of asking you to just pick something at random and rate it worked perfectly. I don’t especially need more ratings, but due to my personal schedule I probably won’t get around to launching the contest for another week or two, so feel free to add more anyway. You can find instructions in section 1 here.
