About Venture


AOI is a nonprofit research organization focused on beneficial deployment of advanced AI. We aim to align AI and other systems with human values.


How We Work

AOI runs coordinated research programs to build advanced tools to solve misalignment within AI and human systems. Our aim is to avoid large-scale economic, institutional, and environmental catastrophes while creating new tools to improve human flourishing.

To achieve this goal, we identify misalignments and the tools that can help resolve them. We then build these tools within collaborative research groups – led by experts from a range of disciplines. Each program has a research sub-group that builds frontier knowledge within its domain.

After developing and validating a tool’s impact, we release it. It can then grow its impact within other contexts – non-profits, for-profits, open-source libraries, or independent research programs. Our work is to turn world-changing ideas into real-world tools.


Focus Areas

We investigate intersections of society and technology:

  • Alignment of Markets, AI, and Other Optimizers – How do we align these large-scale coordination systems with the needs and values of their constituents?
  • Scaling Cooperation with AI Assistance – How can recent AI advancements help us better coordinate large groups of people
  • Human Attention and Epistemic Security – How can we help people take actions in line with their values in an increasingly confusing information ecology?
