Allan Dafoe is Associate Professor of International Politics of Artificial Intelligence and Director of the Center for the Governance of AI, housed at the Future of Humanity Institute. He studies the global politics of artificial intelligence, with a goal of gaining insight and providing policy advice to help guide the development of AI for the common good.
