Arkose is an early-stage, AI safety field-building nonprofit, with the mission of reducing risks from advanced AI. Our approach will likely encompass a range of activities and responsibilities, primarily involving surveys, calls, and supportive programs.

Our recent work aims to facilitate discussion and evaluation of potential risks from advanced AI, with a focus on soliciting and engaging with expert perspectives on the arguments and providing resources for stakeholders. Our results can be found at AI Risk Discussions. Going forward, our future work will likely include introducing programs to support researchers interested in contributing to AI safety.

Arkose was founded by Vael Gates, and is in the process of incorporating. At present, we operate under the name Larchwood as a project of Players Philanthropy Fund, a Maryland charitable trust recognized by IRS as a tax-exempt public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (Federal Tax ID: 27-6601178). Arkose is funded by the Survival and Flourishing Fund.
