What this blog is about

The goal of this blog is to publicly make available updates about what I’m working on. Previously, this was not as important, since most of my work was already available publicly (via public activity feeds). However, since the main thing I am focusing on now is studying related to AI safety, most of what I’ve been up to recently has not been explained publicly. I wanted to fix that (as I care about individual transparency and public accountability), hence this blog.

Thanks to Vipul Naik for giving me the idea for this blog via his daily updates repo.

I chose WordPress because I am familiar with the service/interface (from using it in the past), because it has LaTeX support (which GitHub doesn’t), and because I want to allow comments (so that excluded doing this on my own website).
