Is it harder to become a MIRI mathematician in 2019 compared to in 2013? 2019-10-29 Issa Rice LessWrong Machine Intelligence Research Institute Nate Soares Third-party commentary on organization AI safety Issa Rice divides MIRI research employees between "mathematicians" and "engineers" and notes that recently, MIRI has hired mostly engineers and not mathematicians. He also considers the example of Nate Soares, whose background prior to joining MIRI matched the engineer profile, but who still joined and did initial work as a mathematician. His post asks the question of whether this suggests it is harder to become a MIRI mathematician in 2019 (the time of writing the post) compared to 2013. The post includes a list of potential differences between the time periods.
