How to choose a PhD with AI Safety in mindpost by Ariel Kwiatkowski (ariel-kwiatkowski) · 2020-05-15T22:19:13.800Z · score: 9 (3 votes) · LW · GW · No comments
This is a question post.
I'm about to begin doctoral studies in multiagent RL as applied to crowd simulation, but somewhere on the horizon, I see myself working on AI Safety-related topics. (I find the Value Alignment problem to be of particular interest)
Now, I'm asking myself the question - if my PhD is in a roughly related area of AI, but not really closely compatible with AI Safety, does that make anything more difficult further down the line? Or is it still perfectly fine?
