Oxford Uni: Robots Could Wipe Out Humans
Oxford Uni Experts claim the rise of robots and deadly viruses are among the threats that could wipe out swathes of humanity.
We're told governments around the world are said to be failing to prepare properly.
Catastrophic climate change, nuclear war and natural disasters such as super volcanoes and asteroids could also pose a deadly risk to mankind, researchers said.
It may sound like the stuff of sci-fi films, but experts said these apocalyptic threats are more likely than many realise.
The report Global Catastrophic Risks, compiled by a team from Oxford University, the Global Challenges Foundation and the Global Priorities Project, ranks dangers that could wipe out 10% or more of the human population.
It warns that while most generations never experience a catastrophe, they are far from fanciful, as the bouts of plague and the 1918 Spanish flu that wiped out millions illustrated.
In the next five years asteroids, super volcanic eruptions and unknown risks are ranked as the biggest threat to humanity.
The report calls for the international community to improve planning for pandemics and health systems, investigate the possible risks of AI and biotechnology and continue to cut the number of nuclear weapons.
Sebastian Farquhar, director at the Global Priorities Project said it ``definitely requires international co-ordination''.
