Weapons of Mass Artificial Intelligent Destruction (WoMAID)

If scientists know how to do something, it’s not a question of IF, but WHEN they choose to do it.

Are you confident all scientists are working in the best interests of the public? We should really be afraid of the scientists and technologists who are the only ones who understand how to research, design, develop, commercialize, manufacture and deploy the Weapons of Mass Artificial Intelligent Destruction (WoMAID) that hold the capability to destroy all of us.

Many of the scientists and engineers who agree to pursue this dangerous science are agnostic on the moral value of what they do. They stick their head in the sand about the unintended consequences and claim that it’s up to the generals and the politicians to make sure their scientific power is not abused. If scientists know how to do something regardless of the potential unintended consequences, it’s not a question of IF, but WHEN they choose to do it.

That has never worked so well for society. There will always be a scientist (s) who will do anything for career fame and money, letting the apocalyptic chips fall where they may while still sleeping well in their gated communities at night.

How do we protect ourselves from those scientists who would willingly weaponize their kinetic and biological and artificially intelligent (ai) technologies they develop?

Big Questions

How aware are we of our relationship with technology and how well do we understand its impacts?

Can the world control the technology it creates?

Why do we explore? Simply, to discover New Knowledge v.0, also:

  • you meet the best people
  • your fear turns to awe and inspiration
  • you gain a unique perspective
  • you activate the everyday explorer in all of us.
  • it gets you out there into the biosphere, and
  • it motivates you to protect what you love.

Nature is an interconnected global force.
