Karma: 2,142

Half-researcher, half-distiller (see https://​​​​2017/​​research-debt/​​), both in AI Safety. Funded, and also PhD in theoretical computer science (distributed computing).

If you’re interested by some research ideas that you see in my posts, know that I probably have many private docs complete in the process of getting feedback (because for my own work, the AF has proved mostly useless in terms of feedback https://​​​​posts/​​rZEiLh5oXoWPYyxWh/​​adamshimi-s-shortform?commentId=4ZciJDznzGtimvPQQ). I can give you access if you PM me!
