Hi
My name's Mikhail Samin / Михаил Самин (diminutive Misha / Миша). I sometimes use @Mihonarium on social media. I'm an effective altruist, I care about the future of humanity and want the universe not to lose most of its value.
Projects
Printing Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality in Russian
I've launched a crowdfunding campaign to print a book by Eliezer Yudkowsky (in English: hpmor.com), which became the most funded Russian crowdfunding campaign with a record number of backers. As a result, 63 010 books were printed and hundreds of thousands of people read the book online.
Career guide: helps to find a fulfilling career that does good. We're translating the Key Ideas series and will print it as a book in Russian and give it to the winners of olympiads.
Music recognition API. For audio files and live streams. More than 60 million songs in the DB, modern technologies (neural networks and stuff). As a result, I was able to donate dozens k$ to MIRI and other non-profit orgs. Try the music recognition using the Chrome extension or bots on Reddit or Telegram. Read the API Docs or get an api_token from the API Dashboard. Visit audd.io or contact hello@audd.io for more info.
Need my help with anything?
Don't hesitate to contact me! I love to answer interesting questions, participate in podcasts, and talk about AI Safety and the future. (I also make backend services that respond to requests in fractions of milliseconds and develop solutions for the problems of businesses, non-profit organizations, and communities. My bots for social networks are handling millions of messages every day.)
