The next deadly worldwide epidemic could happen at the hand of a terrorist, employing biotechnology for an attack, Bill Gates has warned at the Munich Security Conference. The Microsoft founder also compared the pandemic to nuclear war and climate change.

The next epidemic could originate on the computer screen of a terrorist intent on using genetic engineering to create a synthetic version of the smallpox virus … or a super contagious and deadly strain of the flu,”  he warned in a speech published by Business Insider.

“Whether it occurs by a quirk of nature or at the hand of a terrorist, epidemiologists say a fast-moving airborne pathogen could kill more than 30 million people in less than a year. And they say there is a reasonable probability the world will experience such an outbreak in the next 10 to 15 years,” he warned.

Gates said the link between health security and international security is underestimated adding that governments are not paying enough attention to this threat. “We ignore the link between health security and international security at our peril.”

The absence of deadly epidemics in recent history shouldn’t lull the world into a false sense of security as such “doomsday scenarios” can occur. Gates reminded the audience of the scale of the 1918 flu pandemic which infected around 500 million people and claimed between 50-100 million lives according to various estimates.

“Most of the things we need to do to protect against a naturally occurring pandemic are the same things we must prepare for an intentional biological attack.”

The catastrophic consequences of a pandemic are comparable to nuclear war and climate change, Gates believes. “I view the threat of deadly pandemics right up there with nuclear war and climate change.”

He added that proper preparation could mitigate the risks. Such readiness includes the creation of a medical “arsenal of new weapons” to counter various epidemics. He said people need to “prepare for epidemics the way the military prepares for war,” such as, conducting exercises to understand viruses’ behavior. Last year, the US government conducted a similar experiment, releasing “gas” in the New York subway.

Reducing the time for creating a vaccine, surveillance and cooperation improvement are also among necessary requirements to tackle a pandemic, according to Gates. Lack of proper preparation can cost up to $570 billion annually, he added.

Gates’ speech at the Munich conference is not the first time the billionaire has voiced concerns about bioterrorism. In January, he warned about the potential dangers of bioterrorism during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Speaking to BBC radio in December 2016, Gates spoke about human vulnerabilities to fast-spreading diseases.

One of the world’s most technologically-minded (not to mention richest) people thinks that robots should be taxed just like their human counterparts.

The co-founder of Microsoft believes that if a robot replaces a human in doing a job, then that robot should be taxed at a similar level, with those taxes then being pumped forward into financing jobs in assisting the elderly or teaching school-kids.

Only a few days ago it was reported by Reuters that a similar EU robot tax was rejected, with the plan to take the money made from taxation to then be used in retraining the workers that the robots had replaced.

Talking to Quartz, Gates says “It is really bad if people overall have more fear about what innovation is going to do than they have enthusiasm. That means they won’t shape it for the positive things it can do.”

the guy is one man doom creating headline..

“Whether it occurs by a quirk of nature or at the hand of a terrorist, epidemiologists say a fast-moving airborne pathogen could kill more than 30 million people in less than a year. And they say there is a reasonable probability the world will experience such an outbreak in the next 10 to 15 years,

but bill will have a jab for you..to protect you..

“Reducing the time for creating a vaccine, surveillance and cooperation improvement are also among necessary requirements to tackle a pandemic, according to Gates. Lack of proper preparation can cost up to $570 billion annually, he added.”

his comments on AI are just stupid..

“if a robot replaces a human in doing a job, then that robot should be taxed at a similar level, with those taxes then being pumped forward into financing jobs in assisting the elderly or teaching school-kids.”

oh yeah..that will work!!

robots have bank accounts?..they collect a wage?..they can pay tax?..wtf?

  1. Rent your property to a robot and make some extra cash .

  2. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.

  4. Gates ‘ talkin’ on TV??

  5. I think you are missing the point about taxing the robot. Part of the cost advantage of an expensive robot vs a human being, is that you have to pay a human enough, not just enough to live, but also to pay tax to the government; as well as providing the human with health, retirement and other benefits. What Gates is suggesting is that it is reasonable to tax a company using robots rather than people, as robots cannot reinvest their earnings in the wider economy and the government would need to raise taxes on the remaining human workers to make up the difference in the revenue that the government needs to function. Reducing the competitive advantage of robots over humans, would be good for society as a whole, keeping more people employed rather than a burden on the state. Failing to do so only benefits the company buying the robot, so it is reasonable to tax the company more onerously to reflect the societal costs of robot usage.

    • as robots cannot reinvest their earnings

      since when do we pay robots a wage? and if we do..why?

      what gates is really saying is..we know the robots will take your jobs..but here..have some scraps we grifted from the companies with robots to help make your slave life more comfortable..dont get to bored..

      Reducing the competitive advantage of robots over humans, would be good for society as a whole, keeping more people employed rather than a burden on the state.

      but thats not what “they” want..they want robots doing the work of humans..

      i know what you are saying..i just dont think its that cut and dry..cheers for the comment..

    • what “would be good for society as a whole” would be putting gates and his wife in jail for the rest of their ugly lives.

      but since that’s not going to happen, could you let us know how to get paid spreading pro-gates propaganda on the interwebs? thanks.

      • I agree with xxx, they both belong in jail, eugenic ashkaNAZI freaks…and would add that any ‘terrorists’ out there having pandemic type weapons of mass destruction, please release them at the next G20 meeting where your real enemies plot your demise, even if you’re ‘fake terrorists’ odds are they’ll get rid of you too.

  6. What he is trying to do is make it sound fair.
    This is the twisted psy op that is used to confuse the sheeple.
    How can we make something unfair and unpalatable sound to OK ( hint what do people hate =TAXES).
    Work debt slaves work until we replace you with metal robots ( as oppose to biological robots programmed to avoid fear and desire pleasure) .

    • Anabel, “What he is trying to do is make it sound fair.
      This is the twisted psy op that is used to confuse”

      indeed

  7. Its flawed logic (and no reason) .
    Taxes are unfair .
    Bill Softlittledickhead is saying It will be fair (and “we the rulers will make it fair” ) if our robots that are owned by the bankers corporations pay taxes to the banksters (his puppetmaster).

    If I take away a mans work and move a dollar note from the front pocket to the back pocket it does not make it fair.

    Robots paying taxes
    Hello human beings looking in the mirror.
    If you listen between the propaganda Bill -IP stealing- flasidtinydickhead is saying “Its a great time to stop paying taxes en masse”.

    • “we have a universal wage that will provide all you need..oh..and some food stamps..” *sarcasm

      • The whole point of his pandemic( unsafe vaccines with terminator technology), his continued bio-terrorism means that his puppet masters will not have to fund many”universal wage or food stamps”

  8. Taxes are unlawful.
    As is Gate who has always been covertly using bio-terrorism and making the taxpayers fund billions for the ” preparation”.

  9. FACTS:
    Bill Gates has been using bio terrorism for fifteen years.
    Taxes are unlawful.

    Bill Gate is a unconscious dangerous pathogen that his buddy El Musk should send into space.

    • I agree, taxes are unlawful, and since the taxpaying public are funding Elon Musk’s ‘fortune’ and fake industries, it would be worth watching Bill go up in one of Elon’s famous ‘failed launches’ and well worth that extra billion or so Musk keeps racking up from the people’s money.

  10. Robots already at work:

  11. Mark Cuban mixing politics, jobs, and robots:

    –“Despite Trump’s confidence that he can lower the unemployment rate, “people aren’t going to have jobs,” Cuban said.

    “How does [Trump] deal with displaced workers?” Cuban asked.

    Cuban, who owns shares of Amazon and Netflix, used these companies as examples of how technology is disrupting job growth.

    “Amazon is the greatest start-up in the world,” Cuban said, by using technology to “be smart” and “disrupt retail.” Sooner rather than later other people are going to have to realize how AI and machine learning are impacting American society.”

  12. No such thing as AI.
    There are computers/robots programmed by man with algorithms. These proven liars like Gates tell man than the robots are “intelligent” artificially. What does it even mean “artificial intelligence” (fake intelligence?) or is it just clever programming to answer questions in a turing test?.
    Gates has been using bio-terrorism for over fifteen years… right?
    People are confusing intelligence with cleverness.
    It is not intelligent to exploit workers or create a false economy in a bankers monopoly.Amazon and Netflix are both examples of monopoly retail corporations. If you look closely you will find the same bankers own all the retail, transport and energy monopolies.

  13. THEY-ZUCKO is sick THEY=HELL

  14. don’t know Seek we trustMetalHead that send it 🙂

  15. thx Seek

  18. we listening to this now

    • “Dr. Duncan states that scientists “dont think of science as evil, we are brainwashed into believing that everything we are doing is of benefit to mankind, but look who pays our bills; the military. It’s all for war, it’s all for control, for government control”….”

  19. “The big milestone is when computers can read and understand information like humans do. There is a lot of work going on in this field – Google, Microsoft, Facebook, academia,” writes Gates. “Right now computers don’t know how to represent knowledge so they can’t read a text book [sic] and pass a test.

    “Notably, Gates has expressed a lot of interest in the study of education and learning, for humans as well as for machines.

    “Otherwise, Gates says that he’s looking forward to more developments in health and vaccine science.”
