This website hosts transcripts of episodes of AXRP, pronounced axe-urp, short for the AI X-risk Research Podcast. On this podcast, I (Daniel Filan) have conversations with researchers about their research. We discuss their work and hopefully get a sense of why it’s been written and how it might reduce the risk of artificial intelligence causing an existential catastrophe: that is, permanently and drastically curtailing humanity’s future potential. This podcast launched in December 2020. As of March 2022, it is edited by Jack Garrett, who also wrote the opening and closing theme, and as of August 2022, Amber Dawn Ace helps with transcription.

If you like AXRP, you might like its sister podcast, The Filan Cabinet, where I interview people about a wide range of topics I’m interested in.

You might also enjoy the game “Guess That AXRP”, which involves guessing which episode a randomly selected sentence has come from.
