A Science of Global Risk
Global risks share many common challenges: how to develop robust methods for studying high impact/low probability events, how to engage with a truly global audience and how to translate research into policy impact. These create the opportunity to learn lessons across many different risks.
Managing Extreme Technological Risks
Existential risks share common methodological challenges: how to horizon-scan for and evaluate low-probability/high-impact events; how to encourage responsible innovation amongst technologists and a safety culture amongst scientists. But lessons can be learnt across different risks.
