Reading Group: New technologies to address catastrophic biorisk

  • 3045 Shattuck Ave Berkeley, CA USA (map)

For this reading group, we will be looking at the new Center for Health Security report "Techonologies to Address Global Catastrophic Biological Risks".

It's a 71-page report. Read as much of it as you want, but we only expect you to arrive having read the sections:

- Executive Summary
- Introduction
- Overarching Themes in Technologies

(Don't worry if you haven't finished those- you can still come to join in the discussion!)

Dinner will be provided.

This takes place at REACH, the rationalist and effective altruism community hub. No need to call anyone to get in, just come to the front door and knock. This event is open to both people familiar with and new to thinking about biosecurity. It is baby-in-arms friendly, but not child-friendly.
