Weapons of Reason Issue 6 is out now. The sixth issue is all about technology and artificial intelligence. Artificial Intelligence has already transformed humanity for the better, but its downsides are no less insidious than the plots of dystopian sci-fi fantasies that taught us to fear a robotic future. Humanity’s next challenge will be how to navigate all this uncertainty by designing systems and frameworks that protect us from AI’s potential dangers. Let’s hope it’s not already too late.
Weapons of Reason (WoR) aims to take the most complex challenges facing the world and communicate them simply and powerfully to the widest audience possible. It goal isn’t to provide answers, but instead ask the right questions and inspire people to join the dots for themselves. Most importantly, WoR’s goal is to turn knowledge into action.
“Weapons of Reason uses the power of data, images and words to reveal the rich insights that are required ingredients for addressing our most important global issues.”
Tim Brown, CEO IDEO
The Weapons of Reason magazine is printed (roughly) biannually, with a total of eight issues being produced over the period of the project.
