Join our research efforts by attending an upcoming workshop.
The median reply to the question “How happy are you that you came to the workshop?”
Past participants include:
MIRI hosts several week-long math research workshops each year, in the USA and Europe, on topics at the intersection of mathematical logic and probability theory. Past workshops have resulted in papers about probabilistic logic, program equilibrium, a Löbian obstacle to consistent self-reflection, and other topics.
If you might like to attend such a workshop in the next 18 months, please apply below so we can chat with you about your specific interests and your availability. We use this information to plan our workshops, rather than scheduling our workshops and then inviting people, so please apply even if there isn’t an already-scheduled workshop you know you’d like to attend!
For invited participants, all expenses are covered by MIRI.
Join us for a few weeks at our head office in Berkeley, California.
If you are passionate about our work and want to get involved, but aren’t yet in a position to contribute directly to our research mission as a workshop participant, an internship might be right for you.
An internships offers you the opportunity to contribute your expertise/abilities, gain valuable experience, and form strong relationships with MIRI’s staff, collaborators, and community of supporters.
If you possess the qualities we are looking for in an intern (see criteria for consideration) we want to hear from you.
We are always in need of volunteers for a wide range of tasks.
MIRI’s team does a great deal, but we’re always short on time and people to get work done. This is where our volunteers come in. Every month there are hundreds of hours of work that we simply can’t get to without your help.
If you are passionate about MIRI’s work and want to help us out remotely, head over to mirivolunteers.org to see what volunteers are currently working on, and register as a volunteer to get started.
