Bay Area X-risk Community Initiative (BAXCI)

Anna Salamon is the volunteer project manager of the Bay Area X-risk Community Initiative (BAXCI). Anna describes the initiative as “useful stuff Eliezer Yudkowsky and/or Anna Salamon want to do to help with existential risk.” BAXCI operates under an initial budget of approximately $100k, and focuses mostly on small actions that they hope will be helpful to the Bay Area rationality and AI safety communities centered around CFAR and MIRI.
