June Open Thread

by RyanCarey 1st Jun 201533 comments


Here's a place to discuss projects, ideas, events and miscellanea relevant to the world of effective altruism that don't need a whole post of their own!

Some news from the last week in effective altruism:

  • Alison Woodman (aliwoodman) is on board as a moderator for this forum.
  • I've started a public group entitled Machine Learning for good, in which people learn and apply this technical skill to directly or indirectly do good in the world.
  • Applications have opened for EA Global. In particular, the San Francisco event will be hosted at the Googleplex with a speech by Elon Musk. For those who cannot be in San Francisco, there are parallel events in the UK and Melbourne! So check it out!

Also, last month was the highest-traffic month for the EA Forum so far, so welcome to any new members, and if you have any questions or thoughts, here might be a good spot to try writing about them. Hopefully the forum continues to grow!
