Hi there, I’m Amanda! I’m a Kiwi living in the United States. I work at Ought, a startup building tools to automate complex reasoning. Check out our forecasting product, Elicit! I love co-opting friends into social experiments, understanding how brains work, and figuring out what it means to live a good life.
Ought is a nonprofit machine learning research lab. They built elicit.org, a machine learning assisted research tool. The way they are using machine learning is by breaking down the steps of research into simple, answerable questions for language models rather than attempting to pass judgement on the validity of data without context. Amanda demonstrated the tool live during the presentation, which is accessible at elecit.org right now.
