The What: Discovering and developing patches for fragility in the alignment research system.
The Why: There are timelines where misaligned AGI happens not because we were unable to solve alignment, but because the people who would have solved it were disrupted by a flood, an earthquake, a pandemic, a war. etc etc.
We can't prevent these things happening, but we can mitigate their impact by ensuring we're reasonably prepared for them.
The How: What's been done, what we're doing, and what we want to do.
