Global Priorities Seminar (Week 6, TT18)


This talk will consider how a decision maker's degree of risk aversion and/or ambiguity aversion impacts on whether they should favour uncertain efforts to mitigate extinction risk over more certain efforts focused on short-term good (or vice versa), as well as which risks they might wish to focus on in attempting to reduce the probability of existential catastrophe.
