Team

We’re an interdisciplinary team, based mainly in Prague and Oxford. Together, we bring in diverse experiences with research on rationality, game theory, collective decision making, and education.

Jan Kulveit
Jan is a research scholar at Future of Humanity Institute, University of Oxford, focusing on the behavior and interactions of agents with limited rationality, and more generally on making AI aligned with humans. Previously he did research on phase transitions and complex systems, was a co-director of the Czech EA Association and founded one for-profit and two social businesses along the way. He obtained his PhD in physics from Charles University in Prague. Jan enjoys views from beautiful mountains, drinking tea, and open spaces.

Nora Ammann
Nora is co-director of EA Geneva where she leads workshop and coaching activities, contributes to research on policy-making and thinks about strategy. She is interested in human cognition, collective decision making (and, in particular, the interaction between the two), complexity science, moral uncertainty, truth-seeking and continuous self-improvement.

Daniel Hnyk
Dan works remotely as a team lead of a data engineering team for a London-based startup. Enjoys (definitely not in this order) life hacking, philosophy, rationality, tech, CS, ML/AI, relationships, people skills, parenting, self-dev and more. Dan also co-founded the Prague LessWrong group and Czech EA Association. He obtained his MSc from computer science at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering, CVUT in Prague, working data mining and data science, Bayesian variational techniques and adaptive filtering.

Anna Gajdova
Anna studies Mathematics and AI at Charles University in Prague. She helps run various EA and rationality education events and programs and lately. She is interested in complex systems, AI safety and movement building. She is a bookworm and enjoys spending time in nature.

Tomáš Gavenčiak
Tomáš is a researcher in AI safety, algorithms and game theory. Previously he worked at Department of applied mathematics, Charles University, Algorithms group at ETH Zurich and Google Zurich. He is an EA, rationalist, a curious guy who enjoys nature, good tea, board games, introspection, and shared experiences. He used to organize experiential camps for talented high-schoolers, do various crafts and acro-yoga.

Instructors and collaborators

Blanka Havlíčková
Blanka is interested in the landscape of the human mind and also enjoys hiking and camping in the middle of nowhere. She has organized experiential education events before and is excited that the time of playing, improvising and creativity will come soon again. When not organizing events, she evaluates grants for a grant agency and does research in social comparison and its effect on subjective human wellbeing. She did a PhD in behavioral economics in Prague and Haifa.

Kaj Sotala
Researcher at Foundational Research Institute. Currently focused on harmonizing his nature as a multi-agent mind (techniques: meditation, Internal Family Systems, Focusing, etc.).

Vojta Kovařík
Vojta studied PhD in abstract math in Prague and now works as a researcher in game theory and AI safety. In his free time, he organizes rationality activities in Prague. Also, a nerd when it comes to fantasy / Dungeons and Dragons / weird metal music / PC games.

Filip Štědronský
Computer science student and part-time programmer. Obsessed with all kinds of learning, both in terms of knowledge and abilities, from evolutionary biology to physics, history of science or impro dance.
