Sector 10: Science & Technology

The Science & Technology Sector focuses on the unremitting advance of technology, which at times has exceeded the speed of Moore’s Law and now exceeds the breadth of humanity’s collective wisdom. This Sector also follows Futurists who professionally monitor developing technologies – such as nanotechnology and artificial intelligence – which one day may lead to a “Trans-Human Era” and possibly a “Post-Human Era.” In this regard, the Peace Pentagon HUB aligns with the work of MIT’s Future of Life Institute founded by Stephen Hawking and other concerned scientists.
