Fuzed Foundation tackles the inevitable but preventable extinction-level events facing us. New TED talk below:

Humanity versus Nature: Clearly, the probability of a global pandemic is 100%. The Coronavirus, however, is NOT an apocalyptic pandemic, but it is a wakeup call. We’ve been given the chance to prepare for the much deadlier pandemics to come (some Ebola outbreaks had a fatality rate of 90%). Unfortunately, there are greater threats: solar superstorms that could take out the entire world’s power grid for months or years, and the most deadly natural threat of all – impacts. Scientists used recently 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. There is good news. For the first time in history, we have the technology to completely prevent or mitigate these cataclysms … if we act.

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 still have a few decades before computer processing power can match our intelligence … unless the processors in billions of smartphones are linked together. Their combined computational power could be thousands of times greater than 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.


The Fuzed Trilogy is fiction, unfortunately, the science behind it isn’t. Backed by a cadre of renowned experts, these stories are our future … if we don’t act.

“Highlights a real-life threat and packages it into a highly entertaining action-adventure.” – Dr. Ed Lu, former astronaut and CEO of the B612 Foundation

“Thrilling … can only come from someone who’s been there, done that.” – Admiral Joe Dyer, former Commander Naval Weapons Development and COO of iRobot
