Global catastrophic risks
Our current focus areas are potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence and biosecurity. Read more about our work on global catastrophic risks.
We have not yet identified focus areas in the category of scientific research. The most recent summary of our progress is available in our April 2016 update.
We have not yet identified focus areas for global health & development. Currently, the best giving opportunities we know of in this category are GiveWell’s top charities. (Read more about GiveWell’s relationship to the Open Philanthropy Project.)
We sometimes make grants in other miscellaneous categories when we come across strong giving opportunities.
