Finding the Right Abstractions:

Category-theoretic language for human flourishing

May 2021

Applied category theory (ACT) has many useful tools for creating and layering flexible abstractions, and Topos is seeking ways to apply these tools to important problems. Many in the AI safety community feel a need for new good abstractions to ground their thinking about intelligence, agency, and optimization. This hammer and nail situation suggests an opportunity for collaboration in applying ACT tools to advance human flourishing, and this workshop is intended to start the conversion in earnest.
