About QRI


Conscious experiences form the bedrock of our values — we care that the lights are on — that the lives of those we most care about are filled with positive experiences. But today, there aren’t many objective, scientific ways to talk about conscious experience.
We believe better philosophy should lead to better neuroscience, and better neuroscience should lead to better neurotechnology.
Qualia Research Institute is working to solve these problems. We are building a new way to talk about consciousness and consciousness affecting technology in a consistent, meaningful, and rigorous way. As we gain more power over our surroundings, and more dimensions of self-authorship, it seems increasingly important to understand which futures are worth building.

Reaching this goal will enable us to produce our first book, purchase additional equipment for neurotech projects, and conduct small scale neuroimaging studies. We greatly appreciate your support
