Spoiler title
Anders Sandberg is a Swedish computer scientist and transhumanist. Born in 1972, he obtained an MSc in computer science in 1997 and a PhD in computer science in 2003. Wikipedia and his page at the FHI say he has a PhD in computational neuroscience, though. He was part of the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and now is a Research Fellow at the Future of Humanity Institute in Oxford. His doctoral thesis was on Bayesian Attractor Neural Network Models of Memory, and his Masters’ on Gesture Recognition Using Neural Networks. Anders has a background in computational neuroscience and mathematical modelling, but for more than a decade has worked in the philosophy faculty of University of Oxford doing research on topics such as the ethics and social impact of human enhancement, emerging technology, global catastrophic and existential risks, applied epistemology, and analysing the far future. His research is extremely interdisciplinary, often combines hard science with philosophy, uses quantitative methods to understand qualitative issues, and typically deals with under-researched topics. He enjoys academic outreach and policy impact. He often gives academic and public lectures and panels on his research, science or philosophy. He often gets media requests to comment on issues related to emerging issues involving new technology, the future, risk and ethics. He is also a member in a number of advisory boards.
