BEN GARFINKEL

I'm a Research Fellow at the University of Oxford's Future of Humanity Institute and Acting Director of the Centre for the Governance of AI. My research interests include the security and privacy implications of artificial intelligence, the causes of interstate war, and the methodological challenge of forecasting future risks from technology.

I earned a degree in Physics and in Mathematics and Philosophy from Yale University, before deciding to study for a DPhil in International Relations at the University of Oxford. I have a strong belief in the value of cross-disciplinary learning and collaboration.
