SCOOP tournament raises over $100K for Raising For Effective Giving
19 May 2017
"This immensely generous donation from PokerStars will be going to two of REG's recommended charities: Machine Intelligence Research Institute (MIRI) and the Future of Humanity Institute (FHI)," Liv said. "Both of these organizations are doing crucial research into global catastrophic risk, and specialize in areas that are in dire need of research. I am so happy that our industry is helping to support this vital research with potentially huge positive impact."
Igor added, "I am especially excited about this large donation because PokerStars has taken an important step by supporting a novel and inspired approach to altruism — an approach that also optimizes for highest EV in terms of positive impact. The donation will be split between two outstanding organizations working to mitigate global catastrophic and existential risk."
