This month, we'll be discussing "The Most Important Century" blog series!
Holden Karnofsky the co-CEO of Open Philanthropy and co-founder of GiveWell, recently published "The Most Important Century" - a series of blog posts in which he argues that "the 21st century could be the most important century ever for humanity, via the development of advanced AI systems that could dramatically speed up scientific and technological advancement, getting us more quickly than most people imagine to a deeply unfamiliar future".
Find the series (available in multiple formats) at https://www.cold-takes.com/most-important-century/.
Make sure to join the #reading-group channel on the EA NYC Slack to discuss throughout the month. Stick around since that's where we decide on the books for future months!
