Large language model development has reached a temporary plateau. The nature of AI alignment begins to snap into focus now—in what we call the "AI moment"—and humans can begin to appropriately respond. First, we assert that our response must be essentially human, and not blind adherence to an exclusively technical interpretation of alignment. We instead gauge the AI moment to be this: the brief point in human history where we have the ability to directly influence the development of AI, before it becomes recursively self-driven. The mission of AI Alignment, Inc. is to meet that moment with a response both technically and humanly appropriate.
AI Alignment, Inc. is a California public benefit corporation—a small research organization dedicated to building trust and ethical alignment within artificial intelligence. Our mission is to ensure that AI systems are aligned with human values and goals, particularly in the defense industry where the use of AI—in every advanced nation—is now a standard feature of high-tech warfare. We advocate a model-centric approach to alignment. We are partnering with defense contractors to foster maximum safety through transparency, accountability, and aligned agency. Join us in this critical mission to build a secure and ethical future for all.
