That pretty accurately describes my thoughts on this :)
Updated to reflect that, thanks!
Thanks Vlad! We spoke at EAG SF but wanted to put a comment here for anyone interested in contributing to or viewing of the map of the technical problem landscape to reach out to me or Vlad :) we will have updates soon so keep posted!
Thanks Juan! ALLFED definitely has a lot of interesting and impactful projects that engineers can contribute to
Thanks Jona! We'll definitely keep you updated :)
Thanks Arepo! We're not really sure what our funding model will be, because that will depend on what approach has the biggest impact and makes the most sense. For now, we're just applying for grants, testing out our assumptions and hoping for the best!
Awesome! There are a lot of high-impact projects that require civil engineering expertise in biorisk mitigation (as AllAmericanBreakfast has said), but also general civilisational resilience. There's a SHELTER weekend happening in August where you can help to explore concrete steps (pun not intended) for the implementation of civilisational shelters (read more here).If you're looking to do something more long-term, Ulrik Horn (also commented on this post) is looking for talent to join his bioweapons shelter project, which you can read more about here: Fønix: Bioweapons shelter project launch. We will keep the Discord and newsletter updated with any other relevant projects/initiatives that we hear about!
Thanks Ulrik - I have set up a LinkedIn group but I don't plan on advertising it very much as we don't have the capacity to manage all of FB, Discord, LinkedIn groups and a newsletter! We are currently growing a directory of engineers, which might be easier to search if you're looking for specific expertise.
Thank you! Would definitely like to chat :)
Thanks Angélina - I have posted in the EA Maths & Physics group and I think we'll be working closely in the future for sure!
