AS256: Super AI and Terrorism, with Phil Torres

Today I’m joined by existential risk expert Phil Torres! Phil wrote a book called The End, in which he detailed out several different ways that humanity might become extinct. Phil has written several fascinating articles for a few different online publications, and he’s here to talk about some of the ideas he has explored in them. Did you know by our best calculations, the average person is more likely to face an existential threat than a fatal car accident? We also talk quite a bit about the different factors of ISIS and terrorism, and which sides are myopic about certain ones.
