Existential risks, AI, genetic engineering and space exploration

May 05, 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.
