This is awesome.
I'm sorry, I've been overwhelmed with things lately, I didn't get round to it. But please do something similar next year!
I think your questions are great. I suggest that you leave 7 separate comments so that users can vote on the ones that they’re most interested in.
This is such an odd question. Could produce surprising answers though, if it’s something like “the least interesting ideas that people still took seriously” or “the least interesting ideas that are still a little bit interesting”. Upvoted.
What's a regular disagreement that you have with other researchers at FHI? What's your take on it and why do you think the other people are wrong? ;-)
Can you describe what you think it would look like 5 years from now if we were in a world that was making substantially good steps to deal with the existential threat of engineered pandemics?
Can you describe what you think it would look like 5 years from now if we were in a world that was making substantially good steps to deal with the existential threat of misaligned artificial general intelligence?
Can you tell us something funny that Nick Bostrom once said that made you laugh? We know he used to do standup in London...
We're currently in a time of global crisis, as the number of people infected by the coronavirus continues to grow exponentially in many countries. This is a bit of a hard question, but a time of crisis is often the time when governments substantially refactor things because it's finally transparent that they're not working, so can you name a feasible concrete change in the UK government (or a broader policy for any developed government) that you think would put us in a far better position for future such situations, especially future pandemics that have a much more serious chance of being an existential catastrophe?
