I put together this post for the purpose of sharing interesting resources with friends and colleagues who want to learn more about advancements in the AI space. It's not meant to be comprehensive, but instead a branching out point for folks noticing advances at OpenAI, DeepMind, and open source communities.

Note: many of the resources I chose to share have an explicit alignment/safety orientation, for a few reasons.

  1. I believe that many alignment thinkers present holistic visions of what the near- and intermediate-term landscape looks like for AI. While I disagree with some opinions, these individuals and organizations provide comprehensive, generalized explanations while addressing misconceptions for those unfamiliar with the space.
  2. Many of the cutting-edge AI capabilities are being developed by the same organizations attempting to conduct alignment/safety research.
  3. Philosophically, one should know potential harms of a technology before developing it further.
