What are the greatest global threats to humanity? Are we on the verge of our own unexpected extinction?
"An international team of scientists, mathematicians and philosophers at Oxford University's Future of Humanity Institute is investigating the biggest dangers."
"Likening it to a dangerous weapon in the hands of a child, he Dr. Bostrom says the advance of technology has overtaken our capacity to control the possible consequences.
Unintended Consequences

I have a question, how will we know The Singularity has arrived? Will there be an announcement? Does it have to be precluded with the advent of official, peer-reviewed, A.I.?

Dr Bostrom says there is a real gap between the speed of technological advance and our understanding of its implications. We're at the level of infants in moral responsibility, but with the technological capability of adults," he says. As such, the significance of existential risk is "not on people's radars". But he argues that change is coming whether or not we're ready for it.
