Let’s say you have an idea that you think might be interesting to investigate, possibly a new aspect in AI safety, maybe some new algorithm.
If you’re an experienced researcher, you probably have plenty of intuition to think through it, consider the possible outcomes and decide whether it’s worth investigating.
If you have a decent academic network, you can probably bring it up even in casual conversations with people who are as good or better than you in the field to get a sense of their intuitions.
What if you have none of those things? Is there an online forum for such discussions, just like I’d go to reddit when looking for e.g. game recommendations? Maybe *this* is the forum?
And are there any good recommendations how to try and work it out by yourself, without referring to the wisdom of online crowds?
