We need disentanglement research examples. I tried using Google to search intelligence.org and www.fhi.ox.ac.uk for the term "disentanglement" and received zero results for both. What I need to determine whether I should pursue this path is three examples of good disentanglement research. Before reading the study or book for the examples, I will need a very quick gist - a sentence or three that summarizes what each example is about. An oversimplification is okay as long as this is mentioned and we're given a link to a paper or something so we can understand it correctly if we choose to look into it further. Additionally, I need to be shown a list of open questions.

If I am the only person who asked for this, then your article has not been very effective at getting new people to try out disentanglement research. The obstacle of not even knowing what, specifically, disentanglement research looks like would very effectively prevent a new person from getting into it. I think it would be a really good idea to write a follow-up article that contains the three examples of disentanglement research, the quick gists of what's contained in each example, and the list of open questions. That information has a chance to get someone new involved.
