Somebody at Greenpeace may have seen a few too many of those "machines will rule the world" movies we mentioned in yesterday's story. The group may be adding robotics, artificial intelligence, and nanotechnology to their enemies list. But the group's recently released "study" (PDF format) on these and other emerging technologies is unclear as to what extent Greenpeace will oppose these technologies. Some view this as good news since other luddite groups like ETC have expressed much stronger anti-technology views, calling for complete moratoriums on research. A Smalltimes story gives an overview of the controversy. Howard Lovy offers some analysis of the Greenpeace study and the initial nanotechnology industry response in his weblog.
