It's been a while since we explicitly discussed Effective Altruism. The movement has changed a lot in the past couple years: • There's a much more deliberate focus on entrepreneurship, • Givewell is spinning off Givewell Labs to explore more complex but high payoff opportunities • MIRI has shifted focus, emphasizing math workshops and outreach to current-generation Narrow AI Safety experts in addition to Artificial General Intelligence researchers Early saturday evening, April 26th, we'll have a series of short talks about the state of the movement and opportunities you can pursue, including: 1) How to think strategically about doing good. 2) How to switch careers effectively 3) Recent updates by organizations in the Effective Altruism movement. WHEN+WHERE: Saturday, April 26th, 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM Highgarden House 851 Park Place, Brooklyn NY 11216
