Past editions

Past organizers of AI Safety Camps were volunteers and mainly past participants. We are currently professionalising our management.

#5. Virtual  (Jan 2021)

Remmelt Ellen  (Program Coordination)
Remmelt coordinates the program. He helped launch the first camp. He also 
co-founded Effective Altruism Netherlands. He likes supporting groups to refine decisions and resolve our bottlenecks towards doing more good! 

Rebecca Baron  (Participant Facilitation)
Rebecca is new to the AISC team this year. She facilitates participants’ experience at the camp and keeps our budget in check. She helped organize the Effective Altruism Global x Boston conference in 2018 and 2019. She studies economics and international relations at Tufts University.

Richard Möhn  (Applications)
Richard leads our application phase. He was admitted to AISC4, but had to drop out before the research phase began. He now works for Spark Wave as a software engineer. He thinks he knows something about application procedures because he listened to a lot of Manager Tools.

Max Chiswick  (Topics & Teams)
Max leads our topic & team selection phase. He participated in AISC4, where his team researched the topic of generalisation in reinforcement learning. He is about to start his PhD in AI.

Nicholas Goldowsky-Dill  (Team Mentorship)
Nicholas leads our mentorship and team support. He participated in AISC3 and helped organize AISC4. He recently graduated from Cornell with a degree in Mathematics. He helps with organizing effective altruism student groups at both Cornell and Oxford University.
