CSER Seminar April 24th: Will We Cause Our Own Extinction?

04 April 2015

CSER’s April seminar will be on Friday 24th April, 4.00-5.30pm.  Dr Toby Ord (Oxford) will present on the topic “Will we cause our own extinction? Natural versus anthropogenic extinction risks

Toby Ord is a Research Fellow at the Future of Humanity Institute, Oxford University & Oxford Martin School. He works on theoretical and practical questions concerning population ethics, global priorities, existential risk and new technologies, and recently contributed a report on Managing Existential Risk from Emerging Technologies to the Chief Scientific Advisor’s annual report for the UK government.

This seminar in particular should prove an excellent introduction to the risks that CSER focuses on and the importance of global prioritization to reduce existential risk.

We are grateful for the high level of interest in our seminar series so far and for Dr Ord’s talk we have moved to the larger venue Little Hall, Sidgwick Site, Cambridge University, CB3 9DA. The event is free, open to all and will be followed by a drinks reception.

Videos of previous seminars are available on the CSER Youtube Channel.
