GLOBAL CATASTROPHIC RISKS

THE BIGGER PICTURE

According to the Cambridge Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER),  plausible global catastrophic risks include: 

  • tipping points in environmental systems due to climate change or mass biodiversity loss; 

 

  • malicious or accidentally harmful use of artificial intelligence; 

 

  • malicious use of, or unintended consequences, from advanced biotechnologies; 

 

  • a natural or engineered global pandemic; and 

 

  • intentional, miscalculated, accidental, or terrorist-related use of nuclear weapons.

"Without action, these catastrophic risks will only grow over time, whether it be on climate change, ecothreats, synthetic biology or cyber"

Professor Lord Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal and co-founder of CSER
