Location: Virtual

Register: HERE

OpenAI is looking for folks who would be interested in being an AI trainer, supporting our ongoing efforts to apply domain-level expertise in evaluating models.

These model evaluations are a part of an initiative launched by the OpenAI Preparedness Team. Experts support our mission of ensuring AGI benefits all of humanity. You will be helping us build upon the initial work that was recently published by our Preparedness Team on Building an early warning system for LLM-aided biological threat creation.

We have an active project we are recruiting for, with others planned in the future.

Expert review of domain-related questions. You will be generating, reviewing and answering questions in the subfield(s) of your expertise with the help of Google, but not the help of ChatGPT or other language models. This project is asynchronous and short term, done at your own pace, paid by deliverable (~ 100$ per hour). Domains of interest include chemistry, physics, law, medicine, biology, English, and similar fields.

The success of our first spacecraft, the Explorer I satellite, in 1958 helped lift America into the Space Age. From there, our spacecraft have flown to every planet in the solar system, the Sun, and into interstellar space. We are a leader in robotic space exploration, sending rovers to Mars, probes into the farthest reaches of the solar system, and satellites to advance understanding of our home planet.
