I research various questions regarding a future transition to artificial intelligence (AI) at the Machine Intelligence Research Institute (MIRI) in Berkeley. I run the AI Impacts project there. I have previously studied game theory—especially in signaling, and anthropic reasoning, and like to think about many other things. Some other favorite places to visit are the GMU economics department, the Future of Humanity Institute, and the Center for Effective Altruism. I blog at Meteuphoric and used to blog at Overcoming Bias. I’m very in favor of making the world much better, and also avoiding destroying everything. And in case it needs specifying, I like efficiency. I also like neat insights, though less so. I try hard to make my life better.
