G Gordon Worley III

Phenomenological AI Safety Research Institute

Gordon is the founder and Director of Research of the Phenomenological AI Safety Research Institute (PAISRI), working to address existential risks created by artificial general intelligence. He was introduced to x-risks in the early 2000s by Nick Bostrom and Eliezer Yudkowsky, and after many years of looking for ways he could work to reduce them, he realized he could combine his interests in phenomenology, philosophy, mathematics, and AI to address x-risks through academic research. His current work focuses on using phenomenological methods to perform philosophical investigations into fundamental issues relevant to AGI alignment research.
