The Oxford Future of Humanity Institute (“The Oxford Future of Humanity Institute focuses on big picture questions for humanity. The Institute studies how anticipated technological developments may affect the human condition in fundamental ways, and how we can better understand, evaluate, and respond to radical change. The Institute’s current work streams include Human Enhancement, Global catastrophic risk, Methodology, and Rationality. While the Future of Humanity Institute is located with the world-leading Oxford Faculty of Philosophy, we take an unashamedly multi-disciplinary approach to our subject areas. We use scientific research methods, philosophical techniques, ethical analysis, technology and risk assessment, and policy evaluation tools. We also work to promote public engagement and informed discussion among stakeholders in government, industry, academia, and the not-for-profit sector. “)
Director: Dr. Nick Bostrom
