GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 6th March at noon SLT: Forbidden research! Should we ban dangerous research?


Nowadays we are at the forefront of a lot of really scary research.  AI, GenTech, Nanotech.  But it could get even scarier with research into time travel, black holes, cloning, brain modification, biological weapons, aging.  Should some research or the funding for some research be banned?

Should some past research have been banned?  Research into nuclear weapons perhaps? Or space research?

Should we set up a board of censors that would decide whether research would be allowed?  Would banning research actually work?

Or do you think all research should be allowed, always?

Come and discuss that thing that should not be discussed.  Bring your friends!

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday at 1pm SLT in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.
