Anders Sandberg (born 11 July 1972) is a Swedish computational neuroscientist, currently Senior Research Fellow at the Future of Humanity Institute.

In 2000, Sandberg co-founded Eudoxa, a science and technology think tank based in Stockholm (Allern & Pollack 2016: 67; McGann 2015: 106).

Sandberg has been described as “a multifaceted genius—a philosopher, neuroscientist, futurist, mathematician, and computer graphics artist.” (Buchanan 2011) His contributions span a wide range of topics, including the Fermi paradox, model uncertainty, cognitive enhancement, whole brain emulation, intelligence explosion, oracle AI, anthropics, and the future of humanity, among others.
