Interesting. This came from chats I had with an attorney. That said, they were based in SF, so maybe their prices were higher. I also asked how much it would cost to do "everything", which I think meant more than strictly file the IRS Form 1023. I believe there's a lot of work that could be done by either yourself or the attorney, and I would hope that in many cases we could generally lean more on the attorney for that work.

One difference is that orgs can share contractors, but not employees. For instance, my designer only spends around 1-3 hours per week, so has lots of time to help other groups, like EA groups. I'm thinking of low-time, skill-specific workers (the jobs in that list would all only work a few hours per month or similar)

I know there was one Discord group for rationalists learning math that seemed pretty useful.

Separately, there's been a decent amount of work on AI specifically. I was personally matched with a few other people near me to learn about ML, and we did have several sessions, which was pretty nice.

I'd encourage more experiments here. One common thread (you'll likely see in several responses) is that I'd encourage you to think small at first, as in an MVP. Maybe some early versions would look like Slack/Discord groups for one specific niche.

If you (anyone reading this) are interested, I recommend applying to the EA Funds or similar. I imagine some interventions here may be quite cheap, but useful. I'd be happy to review your application or discuss if you do.

There are typically many contractors to choose from, and it's difficult to evaluate their quality. For instance, if you want a virtual assistant, it may take several interviews and trials until you find one you like.

I'm not sure what kinds of suppliers you are referring to. If it's simple things like, "buy paper from this company on Amazon", that's typically simpler. The reviews are more indicative of performance and there are often fewer alternatives.

I would like to think it's worth it, and wasn't suggesting that this would make the project not-worth-it, but just wanted to make it more clear what the costs would be.

Given that the costs are significant (though possibly justifiable), one easier approach would be with small solution to start.

My current guess is that there's not actually that much room for high-impact startups. It's really, really hard to successfully create a C-corp, let alone optimizing for strategy at the same time. Now that there is significant money available for nonprofit ventures, it seems much less of a draw than it used to.

There are almost no ideas I have for what very useful startups would look like, at least things that I wouldn't expect could be more effective as nonprofits (at least for the first few years).

Happy to be proven wrong of course! Also happy to provide feedback on specific ideas if people are interested.

One thing I'd note is that Guesstimate took quite a bit of time (maybe around 1.5 years engineering/PM time.) I'd guess is that if you were to try to pay for someone to make something similar, it could cost quite a bit (>$200k.)

After competing in multiple hackathons, I've found that they rarely produce useful work. It's actually quite a bit of work to extract and formalize problems (from organizations). I feel like around EA, I'm not sure how many problems there are suitable to hackathons.

That said, they can be good for networking / experimenting with working with different groups. I'm happy I went through the hackathons I did, but more for skill building than direct output.

I think overall I'd expect them to be a decent use of a weekend, but would expect the output to be similar to that of other hackathons (i.e. not that much, so just expect that). ~2 days isn't that much, both in costs and expected benefits.

I'd agree. I find these skills undervalued in EA compared to research.

That said, for research tasks, it's possible to do much of that in existing orgs; so the marginal new org may not be as relevant. If I instead asked, "what new research areas would you want to see investigated" I imagine I may have had a bunch of results.

There have been several attempts at making public cost-effectiveness models, but they are often made by people who are working on the relevant research. For instance, organization in area X making an estimate to show that X is cost-effective.

It would be nice to have another agency agree to make their own models, or to go through existing models and check them for validity, similar to a penetration tester.

An EA Fiscal Sponsor

There are several reasons why small orgs may want nonprofit status or similar. Official nonprofit status can take many months to get in the US, and cost $10-30k of attorney fees.

One solution is to get Fiscal Sponsorship from another trusting org, but I don't believe many EA orgs are focussed on being the Fiscal Sponsor of many new and small groups.

There are already many groups that act primarily as fiscal sponsors for other orgs, so it is a pretty tried-and-true model. https://fiscalsponsordirectory.org

With all of the EA Funds and CEA community grants coming out, I could imagine a lot of groups may want to become more formal organizations.

An org/project that basically provides easy access to a whole bunch of vetted remote talent for EA organizations.

Our ability to scale current direct workers seems important, and one possible way is by augmenting them with lots of remote help. The costs to set up contractor relationships are considerable, so it often doesn't make sense to set up a relationship if an organization would just use it for themselves.

This organization would interview & organize work with many specialized skillsets, and help provide them on demand.

Some ideas of ways to help:

  • Research assistance
  • Writing help
  • Presentation help
  • Minor web work
  • Bookkeeping
  • Lawyers

Comment by oagr on What's the best structure for optimal allocation of EA capital? · 2019-06-04T23:37:37.631Z · score: 9 (6 votes) · EA · GW

I think that there's a pretty compelling case for Cari & Dustin to give everything to Open Phil. The main reason is that Open Phil is already evaluating and funding the other options, and will continue to do so. They are funding many moonshots (AI risk), and are basically funding many smaller grants (through things like regranting programs with BERI and CEA).

If they were to give directly to moonshots or other projects, that would just mean moving the decision from Open Phil staff to Cari & Dustin individually, which seems weird to me. They could hire other people to do this, but at that point they are basically making a competitor to Open Phil.

Should they sponsor an Open Phil equivalent/competitor? My guess is that this would most make sense if this other organization were sufficiently different and/or specialized; though in these cases, I'd expect Open Phil would be happy with them and consider funding them directly; they would be less of an equivalent and more of a collaborating group. If they were too similar they would compete for talent; I think much of the best talent is at Open Phil, so this would be a struggle for them.

From what I understand, Holden really doesn't have complete power. If his influence were too high, that could be modified while keeping the main Open Phil relationship the same.

The general structure of "I'm rich, so I'll make one, and only one, group to decide, on a high level, what to do with my money" seems pretty reasonable and common to me.

Separately, I'd of course like to see other mega-billionaires also come in, but that's somewhat of a separate issue.

I feel pretty flattered to be even vaguely categorized with all of those folks, but I think it's pretty unlikely of working out that well (it almost always is). If I was pretty sure (>30%) I could make a company as large as Apple/Twitter/Tesla/YC, I'd be pretty happy to go that route.

I've chatted to hundreds of entrepreneurs and tried this, arguably, twice before. That said, if later it's predicted that going the more direct business way would be better for total expected value, I could definitely be open to changing later.

"Metaculus - 70k, Ozzie Gooen - 70k, Jacob Lagerros - 27k. These are small companies that need funding; why are you acting as grant-givers here rather than as special interest investors?"

I'm not sure why you think all of these are companies. Metaculus is a company, but the other two aren't.

Personally, I think it would be pretty neat if this group (or a similar one) were to later set up the legal infrastructure to properly invest in groups where that would make sense. But this would take quite a bit of time (both fixed costs and marginal costs), and if there are only a few groups per year (one, in this case, I believe) is probably not worth it.

Happy to chime in here.

I've previously worked at Ought for a few months and have helped them make Mosaic. I've been talking a decent amount with different Ought team members. We share broad interests of how to break down reasoning, but are executing this in very different ways. Mosaic works in breaking down a very large space of problems into tiny text subproblems. I'm working on a prediction application, which works by having people predict probabilities of future events, and separately share information about their thinking. I think that essentially no one who sees both applications would consider them to be equivalent.

I'm doing very similar work as part of my research at FHI. The plan is not to attempt to become a business or monetize in the foreseeable future. I've been around the startup scene a lot before, and have come to better understand the limitations of getting money in business ways. In almost all cases, from what I can tell, experimental and charitable desires become pushed aside in order to optimize for profits. I've considered this with Guesstimate. Originally I thought I could make a business that also would be useful to EAs, but later realized that it would be exceptionally difficult. Most realistic business strategies for sales looked like domain-specific tools, for instance, a real-estate-specific distribution application, which would sell a lot more but be quite useless for EA causes.

In this case, my first and main priority is to experiment/innovate in the space. I think that doing this in the research setting at this point will be the best way to ensure that the work stays focussed on the long-term benefits.

Hypothetically, if in a few years we wind up with something that was optimized for EA uses, but happens to be easily monetizable with low effort, then that could be a useful way of helping to fund things. However, I really don't want to commit to a specific path at this stage, which is really early on.

Some other options, in case someone is particularly interested:

  1. Guesstimate is being used by several EAs, and could use some development help. It's making enough from purchasers to cover basic costs, but not enough for myself to fund significant extra development. It's open source.

Agreed that tokenizing and markets would be difficult in the short term.

The main possible aspect would be evaluating many projects and estimating the impact of them, as opposed to just giving an ordering for the very top projects. A rubric can be used for evaluations.

For example, say you have some rubric where every project was scored on "importance", "novelty", and "quanity" or similar. Then you divy up the prize money proportional to those things on the rubric and make the results public.

That could be an uncomfortable level of transparency for some people, but it would help foster a discussion of which projects are the most valuable.

Legal Implications

I think copying PredictIt would be pretty messy. I'm curious about the feasibility of using crypto, similar to CriptoKitties. It seems like several crypto groups did essentially a similar thing, and perhaps in the medium-term, they will be recognized as being legal in the United States.

"If OpenPhil initially promise $10m, and then later bump it to $20m, projects that have already sold their tokens cannot expand to take advantage of this increase, so it is effectively pure windfall with no incentive effect. "

I agree cohorts are one solution. Another issue though, is that if the audience thought there was a decent chance of a bump, then the ("40% chance there would be a $10mil bump") would be factored into the price.

It's definitely an important question.

In this case, the equivalent is a "car safety" nonprofit that goes around to all the car companies to help them make safe cars. The AI safety initiatives would attempt to make sure that they can help or advise whatever groups do make an AGI. However, knowing how to advise those companies does require making a few cars internally for experimentation.

I believe that OpenAI basically publically stated that they are willing to work with any groups close to AGI, but forgot where they mentioned this.

I wrote this post recently:

Generally, I feel like there are actually pretty few regular engineering positions around for EAs (Maybe 8-15), and these both have fairly high bars and require work in the US/UK.

Small orgs have different needs to large ones, and most of the EA groups are small. This in part means they want senior and/or entrepreneurial types.

I do suggest that programmers learn ML or intensely learn Functional programming, though not that many available people seem interested in either (especially those who are doing E2G outside of EA jobs.) Either would be a significant challenge, for one thing.

I've worked around this space (cofounded .impact), and currently I do recommend Michal's work for this issue.

That said, I think it's less overlooked than it would appear. Volunteers, even tech volunteers are generally really difficult to work with. The really good ones tend get to get hired by groups rather quickly, and most of the rest are quite flaky. (Though this may be less true of Eng, which is a bit less in demand than other roles now.)

There's generally a lot of overhead for managing a tech project, and doing it with someone who has a good chance of flaking out quickly is not that great.

My impression is that while there are a bunch of EAs in tech, very few are willing to sustain a 10hr/week plus time commitment; especially ones who don't have a lot of other experience doing side projects of that type.
