I set up the website artificialintelligenceact.eu in 2021 to provide an accessible go-to resource all things related to the proposed European law on artificial intelligence. It is currently one of the top hits on search engines if you try to find information about the proposed law. To complement the website, I also started the EU AI Act newsletter in 2022 to provide the audience with up-to-date developments and analyses of the legal process.
In 2021, I co-authored a report titled Positive AI Economic Futures together with Professor Stuart Russell, Research Fellow Daniel Susskind, and others. We took as its starting point the hypothesis that AI systems will eventually be able to do the great majority of what we currently call work, including all forms of routine physical and mental labor, and put forward positive visions for that kind of future.
On the 17 of July 2020, the High-Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence (AI HLEG) presented their final Assessment List for Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence. I contributed to the development of this tool by creating the research methodology used for conducting expert interviews and conducted several interviews together with others in the European Commission’s working group.
I co-founded NGO Effective Altruism Estonia in 2017 and currently, I’m an advisor to the new leaders. Effective altruism is a philosophy and social movement that applies evidence and reason to determine the most effective ways to benefit others. The mission of Effective Altruism Estonia is to research and promote the ideas of effective altruism in Estonia. More can be read from this webpage in Estonian and here in English.
I co-founded an online magazine Teadliktreening.com in 2014, but I’m not involved with it anymore. More than 165,000 people read the website to get evidence-based information about exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle when I was working there. Our mission was to help people exercise more knowledgeably, safely, and effectively to achieve their body composition and performance goals without injuring themselves.
