Issa Rice

This is the website of myself, Issa Rice. This site stores biographical information about me, but it is also a personal wiki or open notebook of sorts; anything that doesn’t belong elsewhere ends up on here, and as a result the content on here can be of admittedly low-quality: unfinished, written in multiple voices over the span of years, wrong, or otherwise unsuitable for public consumption. Embarrassing as it is, I like to “think and work in the open” so others can benefit from my thoughts and critique them.

Summary of what I worked on: November 2018

For completed tasks, see the work page.

I spent some time adding to Vipul Naik’s Learning Subwiki. You can see my contributions for the month.

I learned about the GraphQL API (used on the new LessWrong 2.0 and EA Forum), and wrote a simple reader for both LessWrong 2.0 and EA Forum. The source code is available on GitHub. I am also writing a tutorial because I found the learning process pretty painful and want to help other people use the API.

I spent most of the month learning about things related to AI alignment. I started a new blog to track updates on this front.

For previous monthly updates, see the archive of my monthly updates.
