Hey there! This is a webpage representing Niklas Lehmann on the biggest machine ever created by humankind: The internet. 


I currently spend my time researching questions such as: 

– How can we better understand and forecast progress in Artificial Intelligence?

– Where should Prediction Markets be used to elicit information? Why are prediction markets so rarely used in forecasting practice?

– How can humanity steer best toward coordination over conflict?

– How can mathematical theorems and methods be applied to open questions in economics and other sciences?

– Why is there emergence? Why is there Macro- and Microeconomics instead of one united theory?

– Are people gaining awareness of existential risk? How will people behave if existential risk becomes a mainstream ethical concern such as with climate change?
