I talked to Patrick Collison for the third episode of “The Torch of Progress”, the speaker series of Progress Studies For Young Scholars. Topics include his prescription for R&D funding, Effective Altruism and existential risk, why students should learn for a while before choosing a path, and why his Twitter bio is “fallibilist, optimist.”
Upcoming events (all times Pacific):
More coming soon, including Anton Howes.
