CHAI is a research organisation aiming to shift the development of AI away from potentially dangerous systems we could lose control over, and towards provably safe systems that act in accordance with human interests even as they become increasingly powerful.
CHAI’s mission is to “develop the conceptual and technical wherewithal to reorient the general thrust of AI research towards provably beneficial systems.” Their work so far has involved research, field-building, and thought leadership. Read our page on promoting beneficial AI to learn more about why we think this work is important.
CHAI meets our criteria to be top-rated because one of our trusted evaluators, Founders Pledge, recommends them as a high-impact funding opportunity.
Other indicators of its cost-effectiveness are its impressive research output and the fact it has received funding from an expert impact-focused grantmaker, Open Philanthropy.
