Anders Sandberg: Dissolving The Fermi Paradox & The Far Future

Fri Sep 14 7 PM until 9 PM , Salon room

Organized by Allison Duettmann

Join Foresight Institute for an evening with Anders Sandberg from the Future of Humanity Institute at Oxford to discuss his new paper Dissolving the Fermi Paradox and other far future musings.

Anders Sandberg’s research at the Future of Humanity Institute centers on management of low-probability high-impact risks, estimating the capabilities of future technologies, and very long-range futures.

Topics of particular interest include global catastrophic risk, cognitive biases, cognitive enhancement, collective intelligence, neuroethics, and public policy.

Selected publications include:
- Dissolving the Fermi Paradox (2018)
- Putting out the dark fire: constraining speculative physics disasters (2015)
- Outrunning the Law: Extraterrestrial Liberty and Universal Colonisation (2015)
