Big Picture Science - Doomsday Live, Part 2
If there is only one show you hear about the end of the world, let it be this one. Recorded before a live audience at the Computer History Museum on October 27th, 2012, this two-part special broadcast of Big Picture Science separates fact from fiction in doomsday prediction.
In this second episode: a global viral pandemic … climate change … and the threat of assimilation by super-intelligent machines.
Presented as part of the Bay Area Science Festival.
