We've produced a lot of content tailored for people heavily involved in the effective altruist community as it's our key target audience. Here's a recent list:
- Why the long-term future of humanity matters more than anything else, and what we should do about it, according to Oxford philosopher Dr Toby Ord
- The life of a quant trader: how to earn millions to donate within a few years, like Alex Gordon-Brown
- Thinking of learning Machine Learning? Read this first.
- Podcast: We aren’t that worried about the next pandemic. Here’s why we should be – and specifically what we can do to stop it.
- Is it fair to say that most social programmes don’t work?
- Which professions are paid too much given their actual value to society?
- Podcast: How to train for a job developing AI at OpenAI or DeepMind. Interview with Dr Dario Amodei.
- Is it ever okay to take a harmful job in order to do more good? An in-depth analysis.
- These skills make you most employable. Coding isn’t one – can that be right?
- Podcast: Prof David Spiegelhalter on risk, statistics and improving the public understanding of science
More generally a large outlet for effective altruist facing content going forward is going to be our long-form interviews in the 80,000 Hours podcast. Our podcast is focussed on "the world's most pressing problems and how you can use your career to solve them." You can make sure not to miss any episodes, hear them on your phone whenever is convenient, and listen to them sped up, by searching for '80,000 Hours' in whatever app you use to get podcasts.
You can see a list of the episodes so far on SoundCloud - they should be weekly for the next few months.
Here's our post from 3 months ago with the last batch of EA-facing content.
Hope you like it - let us know what you think in the comments.
All the best,
The 80,000 Hours team.
