Does anyone know of any specific attempts to nail down probabilities
of various existential risks? I guess we have some rough estimates for
asteroid impacts... could we use the fact that apparently if you give
a few thousand (supposedly ethical) army scientists access to anthrax
that the odds are apparently high one of them will abuse their tech?
I guess that doesn't bode well for making any kind of advanced bio or
nanotech available to large numbers of scientists.
