Alignment Continuity

"For want of a nail... the kingdom was lost."

The What

Discovering and developing patches for fragility in the alignment research system.

The Why

There are timelines where misaligned AGI happens not because we were unable to solve alignment, but because the people who would have solved it were disrupted by a flood, an earthquake, a pandemic, a war. etc etc.We can't prevent these things happening, but we can mitigate their impact by ensuring we're reasonably prepared for them.

The How

What's been done, what we're doing, and what we want to do.

The Who

I'm Stavros, I'm a generalist systems-thinker who's spent over a decade studying the collapse of civilization (and everything else that pulls on my curiosity).
