AI/neural nets, machines building machines, etc. have all been around for a good while now

Excuse me, what????? When did we create an AI? No, Watson doesn't count. Nothing yet developed comes remotely close to displaying the cognitive capabilities of what is popularly considered "true" AI. Short of a spontaneous breakthrough, Skynet is a long ways off.

I believe that's what the slash is for.

I wonder if they're also going to be studying the "grey goo" aspect.

edit: Wait Creston is bemoaning this research being conducted at "Centre for the Study of Existential Risk" ?

I'd say robot uprising / grey goo is probably pretty high on existential risks. I mean, I would expect that to occur before the Sun expands.
