Update: Here's the video of Toby's session.
As he did last year, Toby Ord will be answering questions submitted by community members during one of the main sessions at EA Global: Reconnect.
Submit your questions here by 11:59 pm PDT on Thursday, March 18, or vote for the questions you most want Toby to answer.
Toby’s work focuses on the big-picture questions facing humanity: What are the most important issues of our time? And how can we best address them? His current research is on avoiding the threat of human extinction, which he considers to be among the most pressing and neglected issues we face.
His earlier work explored the ethics of global health and global poverty, which led him to create Giving What We Can, whose members have pledged hundreds of millions of pounds to the most effective charities helping to improve the world. He also co-founded the wider effective altruism movement.
He has advised the World Health Organization, the World Bank, the World Economic Forum, the US National Intelligence Council, the UK Prime Minister’s Office, Cabinet Office, and Government Office for Science. His work has been featured more than a hundred times in the national and international media.
