The Existential Risk Research Network

We are building a network of researchers who have an interest in existential risk (x-risk) and other forms of global catastrophic risk. To join the network, please sign up to our mailing list.

The Doomsday Database

Together, we plan to build an open-access database that can be used to assess the probability and impact of x-risks and identify strategies that could be recommended to decision-makers as high priorities for managing multiple x-risks.

To begin with, we are building a semi-automated system for finding publications that are relevant to x-risks. These publications will be a source of data for this database. A bibliography of these publications is freely available on this website. Please see The Existential Risk Research Assessment for more information, and please contact us if you want to help us with the assessment.
