About Us

Organizers of the AI Safety Camp are volunteers and mainly past participants. Contact current organizers at contact@aisafety.camp or schedule a one-on-one phone call. The call doesn’t have to be as long as the scheduling site indicates. If you have a five-minute question, we’re happy to get on a call for only five minutes.
