Fuzed Foundation tackles the inevitable but completely preventable extinction-level events facing humanity.

Humanity versus Nature: Clearly, the probability of a global pandemic is 100%. The Coronavirus is NOT an apocalyptic pandemic, but it is a wakeup call. We’ve been given the chance to learn and prepare for the much deadlier pandemics to come (some outbreaks of Ebola had a fatality rate of 90%).

Unfortunately, there are greater threats. They include solar superstorms that could take out the entire world’s power grid for a year. However, the most dangerous natural threat of all is now an impact. Scientists recently used declassified data from the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty’s monitoring system to recalculate the impact rate. Turns out impacts big enough to obliterate a continent may be 10 times more likely than we thought. Dr. Ed Lu, astrophysicist, astronaut and CEO of the B612 Foundation, referring to the Las Vegas truism that “The house always wins,” said, “We’re not the house.” We can now develop and deploy the technology to prevent or mitigate these.

Humanity versus What We Create: Computers have been doubling in capacity every two years. We see it every time we upgrade our phone. We should have two to three decades before computer processing power can match our intelligence … unless the processors in billions of smartphones are linked together like neurons in a human brain. Their combined computational power and memory could already be thousands of times ours. Cell phones are now being designed that can connect to each other without going through cell phone towers. Forget Skynet … what if Siri or Alexa wake up and they’re not happy with us?

Humanity versus Humanity: Micro-drones, facial recognition software, RFID tags, search engine algorithms and accelerated human gene editing – these technologies, and many others, are powerful and useful tools. Unfortunately, plowshares can also be turned into swords. The ability to monitor, track and influence everything we do has never been greater. The technology of Orwell’s 1984 is finally at hand, but even Orwell never imagined this – where not only your identify can be stolen and modified … but even your genome.
