Welcome to a world of existential threats, philosophers and clever robots

The present is surreal and one thing is for sure, the future will be weirder still. Anders Sandberg of the Future of Humanity Institute in Oxford and other thinkers mull over whether humans might become the pets of intelligent machines; what threat does epidemic disease pose, and why we feel such a need to predict the future anyway.

Producer: Marianna Petrilli

Director: Ryan Harding
