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: September 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 started on an analysis for pageviews of wikiHow articles. (No public output of this yet.)

On the last day of the month, I began a wikiHow article about Facebook’s graph search.

I spent some time writing some pages on Vipul Naik’s Machine Learning Subwiki, although the pages are mostly in my userspace and are not related to machine learning. (The wiki was just a convenient place to store the writings for now.)

I spent most of the month learning about things related to AI alignment. (I am still wondering how best to make progress on this more visible.)
