I have discussed starting a MIRIx workshop with MIRI. This would involve meeting for a few hours to discuss research relevant to x-risk and ideas for future research. Food will be provided and a MIRI researcher (probably Nate or Benja) will be assisting over Skype. If you are interested in this, I have a MIRIx workshop Doodle
where you can list your availability. Feel free to invite others who you think would like to come; some math background is necessary but familiarity with MIRI's research is not.
I'm not sure how many people are interested in having LW meetups this term, so we also have a LW meetup Doodle
to see who is interested.
