The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $400,352 to the Center for a New American Security to support outreach by Richard Danzig, former Secretary of the Navy, on technological risks. This is a renewal and expansion of our August 2017 grant, which allowed Dr. Danzig to produce Technology Roulette, a report intended for the national security community detailing the management of risks from losing control of advanced technology. Dr. Danzig intends to use these new funds to continue sharing these ideas with U.S. government officials, as well as spreading them to national security leaders abroad.

This grant falls within our work on global catastrophic risks.
