FLI (The Future of Life Institute) aims to steer transformative technology towards benefitting life and away from extreme large-scale risks. We are concerned by four major risks: artificial intelligence, climate change, biotechnology and, of course, nuclear weapons.

Avoiding nuclear war is in the national security interests of all nations. We pursue a range of initiatives to reduce this risk. FLI seeks to reduce the risk of nuclear war by raising awareness of just how bad such a war would be – namely due to nuclear winter – and by supporting specific measures that take us back from the brink of nuclear destruction. We also educate the public about the inspiring individuals who prevented nuclear war in the past and celebrate scientists who reduced nuclear risk by discovering nuclear winter. Our current policy work is focussed on ensuring that nuclear stability is not undermined by efforts to incorporate AI systems into nuclear weapons command, control and communication (NC3).
