Weapons & Peace
|Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility|
Welcome! We're CPSR members dedicated to creating a more peaceful world using our technical insight.
As CPSR members, our mission is to look beyond hype and technological boosterism:
- to analyze the tasks and environments for which computer intensive weapons systems are appropriate,
- to disseminate success stories and cautionary tales relevant to those implementing or managing high tech weapons.
