Existential risks, AI, genetic engineering and space exploration



Michael Anissimov

Changesurfer Radio

Posted: May 5, 2007


Dr. J. and IEET contributor Michael Anissimov, author of the Accelerating Future blog, talk about the work of the Lifeboat Foundation, which is trying to develop solutions to risks to the future of the human race. We also discuss the challenge of self-willed machine intelligence. Then I read a bit of the essay “Genetic Engineering and Space Exploration” by the IEET’s newest Fellow, Athena Andreadis.
