Post-Colloquium Closing thoughts

In this edited Q&A, three experts talked to UCLA Engineering about how to realistically think about these risks and how to provide sound information to policy makers. Responding to questions were UCLA Chancellor Emeritus Albert Carnesale, a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and public policy; Seán Ó hÉigeartaigh, executive director of Centre for the Study of Existential Risk at the University of Cambridge; and Christine Peterson, co-founder and past president of the Foresight Institute, a think tank and public interest organization based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

All were featured speakers at the conference.
