Thanks to some recent posts on the EA Forum and 80,000 Hours blog, I've started exploring global priorities research (GPR) as an alternative career path. I'm interested in doing GPR as a data scientist using machine learning and related techniques to analyze datasets. How much demand for data science is there in GPR? What kinds of opportunities are there?
If you haven't already, I'd reach out directly to GPR organizations and mention that you're interested in applying your skillset to their work. They might be able to provide you with some concrete examples and a better idea of what's available in the field.
