I am Nate Soares. I look like this:
I'm the executive director of the Machine Intelligence Research Institute.
(This blog is not affiliated with MIRI, my opinions are not necessarily the opinions of anyone else at the institute, and so on. This is a personal blog.)
I also have a small website at http://so8r.es, which does neat things if you click the background.
My first blog post provides a fine introduction to this blog. Some of the essays on this blog are also available as a physical book, ebook and audio book, if you prefer that.
