not at the same level of rigour as MIRI

I would agree, with a qualification. Due to OAI co-founders personal risk attitude I would say as an organization they care less about it. As far as the actual quality of research they have some pretty respectable people like Paul Christiano Dario Amodei (respectable here is a second-hand judgement, do not consider myself qualified for 1st hand)
