Counting Down to Skynet

Counting Down to Skynet
The Threatcasting Lab at Arizona State University was formed to forecast the threat that emerging technologies pose ten years into the future so that we can disrupt and recover from future events. My work seeks to bridge the gap between the qualitative analysis done within the Threatcasting workshop and the quantitative analysis needed to present an objective view on the matter.
