AGI Safety Fundamentals allows students to explore the emerging field of AI Alignment, the research field directed at ensuring advanced AI systems robustly pursue human goals. 

This 8-week program focuses on risks from advanced AI systems which are not aligned with human values and the ongoing technical research trying to mitigate these risks. We discuss topics such as threat models from advanced AI, reinforcement learning from human feedback, goal misgeneralization, mechanistic interpretability and more. You can see the full syllabus here.

Much of the program content is technical papers from top AI labs like OpenAI, DeepMind and Anthropic. All students, regardless of major, are encouraged to apply, and we’re especially excited to read applications from intellectually curious and technically skilled students!
