The Future of Humanity Institute

FHI Logo

The Future of Humanity Institute is a multidisciplinary research centre at the University of Oxford.  It enables leading researchers to bring the tools of mathematics, science, and philosophy to bear on big-picture questions about humanity and its prospects.

We focus our research where we think it can make the greatest positive difference. This means we pursue questions that are (a) critically important for humanity’s future, (b) unduly neglected, and (c) for which we have some idea for how to obtain an answer or a useful new insight.
