Differential technological development is a strategy Proposed by transhumanist philosopher Nick Bostrom in qui societies Would seek to affect the sequence in qui emerging technologies Developed. On this approach, societies would have to delay the development of harmful technologies and their applications, while accelerating the development of beneficial technologies, especially those that offer protection against the harmful ones. which? [1] [2]

Paul Christiano believes that while accelerating the progress of the future, the future is likely to become more important because of the growth of the future. Hence, from the perspective of the far future [3] [ unreliable source? ]

Inspired by Bostrom ‘s proposal, Luke Muehlhauser and Anna Salamon suggests a more general project of “differential intellectual progress,” in which society advances its wisdom, philosophical sophistication, and understanding of risks that exceed its power. [4] [ unreliable source? [5] [ unreliable source? ] Brian Tomasik HAS expanded on this concept. [6] [ unreliable source? ]
