Hey, I’m Samu.
By day, I am a Bachelor student in Philosophy, Neuroscience, and Cognition at the University of Magdeburg. By night, I am exploring the intersection between the development of safe AI systems and Neuroscience/Cognitive Science. Currently, I am working on "Hebbian" Natural Abstractions, a variant of the Natural Abstractions Hypothesis. I also enjoy writing on other topics, so reach out if you'd like to collaborate!
I sympathize with some views of the Effective Altruism and Rationality community (though I disagree on many parts as well; in general, I try to keep my identity small and form my own views). Aside from that, I enjoy bouldering, reading, playing guitar and piano, and riding my bike (a lovely Koga Miyata CarbonTech 5000 Singlespeed). Previously, I was involved in the climate movement as a UX designer and worked at Together for Future e.V. and Future Matters Project as a project manager, referee for team development and as a knowledge manager. If you’re interested in any of the aforementioned topics, the easiest method to contact me is via Telegram (~1-3 days answering delay usually – but 100% response rate), otherwise you can use my email. Here you can also book a 1-on-1 with me or give me anonymous feedback (I love reading feedback!).
