There is a fairly large contingent of safety research oriented people at NIPS this year. I'm unfortunately not among them, but if you're there and interested in connecting with others on AI safety topics or other LW issues - general rationality, EA, etc. I welcome you to make this thread a Schelling point to create meeting opportunities :). You can also PM me I can connect you to people I know are there.

I am at NIPS (as of today).

edit: Andrew Ng: "it's very hard to see 5 years out, I call bullshit on 20 year out claims."

Thanks for the initiative! I'll be there Thursday through Saturday (plus Sunday) for symposia and workshops, if anyone would like to chat (Sean O hEigeartaigh, CSER).
