CARMA’s mission is to markedly mitigate the risks to humanity and to the biosphere from unaligned transformative artificial intelligence, via tightly-integrated technical, strategy, and policy research competencies.


CARMA builds toward the safety of the public and the planet from transformative AI technologies through differentiated research on technical AI safety and scalable AI ethics, and through working to understand and support the needs of existential safety coordination and education. By growing technical safety, beneficent alignment, and coordinative governance, and by enabling others to better do so, we aim to help manage the environmental and existential risks from transformative AI through lowering their likelihood.
