The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk
The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk is an interdisciplinary research centre within the University of Cambridge that studies existential risks, develops collaborative strategies to reduce them, and fosters a global community of academics, technologists and policy-makers working to safeguard humanity. Its research focuses on biological risks, environmental risks, risks from artificial intelligence, and how to manage extreme technological risk in general.
Interviews with The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk
In the rapidly-emerging field of existential risks, researchers study the mitigation of threats that could lead to human extinction or civilisational collapse. We met with four researchers from The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk at the University of Cambridge, to discuss their recommendations of the best books to get a grasp of this dense subject.
