TagLast edit: 15 Jan 2022 13:03 UTC by Pablo

The Qualia Research Institute (QRI) is a nonprofit research organization based in San Francisco that focuses on consciousness research. QRI’s goals are to develop a precise mathematical language for describing phenomenal experience; to understand the nature of emotional valence; and to develop technologies based on this research that improve people’s lives. It was founded in December 2018 by Andrés Gómez Emilsson, Mike Johnson and Romeo Stevens.[1]

Since 2021 QRI’s board of advisors includes Scott Alexander and David Pearce.[1]
