I think the elephant in the room is : "Why are they part-time?"

If making more grants is so important, either hire more people or work full-time, no? This is something I do not understand with the current status quo

How did you discover this cause area? Is there a way to automatically browse all diseases and associated daly and see the research effort associated with each disease?

I have the impression that one of the reasons for the focus on technical AI is the fact that once you succeed in aligning an AI, you expect it to perform a pivotal act, e.g. burn out all the gpus on earth. To achieve this pivotal act, it seems that going through AI governance is not really necessary?

But yes, it does seem to be a bit of a stretch

Great first post!

Do we have statistics on the number of people and organizations in AI technical safety and people in AI governance?

You can also encrypt your name in order to make the job harder to google but still readable. For example, replace "e" by "3", "a" by "ae". Do you know any other tricks?
