Karim Jebari

I am a researcher at the Institute for Futures Studies. I defended my doctoral thesis in December 2014 at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). 

I am writing a book on the climate crisis and the future of humanity, and my interests range from the social impact of emerging technologies to long term risks to human civilization. I have published several articles in the field of existential risks, bioethics, the philosophy of AI and human enhancement. 

Right now I have several ongoing projects. I am writing about AI and the future of work, on AI and the so-called responsibility gap, on how to interact with a hypothetical extraterrestrial civilization, on whether we have an individual moral responsibility to reduce our “carbon footprint”, and on the moral values involved in terraforming other planets.

I am also a keen participant in the public discourse on a broad range of issues, in particular through Twitter
