2022

  • November 2022: Wrote my first column piece in the New Statesman - giddy because Keynes and Virginia Woolf wrote for them.
  • November 2022: I’m on the Advisory Council of Civic Future, an initiative to identify talented people and enable them towards contributing to policy and public service.
  • October 2022: Red Teaming Language Models with Language Models was accepted at EMNLP 2022.
  • September 2022: Kernel Magazine (the magazine I co-founded) issue 2 is out.
  • August 2022: Excited to announce that I am co-directing the Collective Intelligence Project with Divya Siddarth. If we can collectively govern, own, or have input on transformative technology, we will be able to steer the most significant engine of societal change for the better.
  • August 2022: Josh Stark (COO of Ethereum Foundation) and I spent many months writing a piece on consistent patterns fo centralization in past information technologies (e.g. radio, film, telephone and TV) and what crypto can learn from it. We put forward some fun, scary “statechain” scenarios, trying to predict the traffic jam, not just the automobile.
  • August 2022: I presented at the Interact Summer Symposium on how we structure our digital information flows. A rather cerebral but fascinating topic to me. Thanks to all who came. Some of the research ended up on my substack.
  • August 2022: I’m departing DeepMind. Grateful for the incredible colleagues I’ve been lucky to work with and learn from. I’ll have a lifelong love of NLP, multi-agent, game theory, and the power of rigorous statistical analysis.
  • July 2022: Presented Red Teaming Language Models with Language Models at the IJCAI 2022 Evaluation Beyond Metrics workshop in Vienna.
  • March 2022: My work on toxicity metrics of large language models is a top takeaway in the AI Index Report of 2022.
