Mass shootings are a horrible American phenomena. We have a problem with guns crossed with an overly aggressive society. I believe the number of mass shootings *can* be reduced even if our politicians won’t act on gun control. How? By using AI, Computer Vision, and non-lethal robotic responses to help people fight back against shooters. A summary of robotic self defense of soft targets like schools against shooters 24 seconds:
There are many details. Yes, it’s complex as hell. I KNOW. HELP US.
Because it IS possible to “help people fight back.”
An MVP model for robotic self defense is as simple as a human who points at the bad actor from a remote location on their iphone/android and activates the wall mounted robots. The robots, under human control, act in unison to disorient the shooter. Yes, it still requires a human response against the shooter. But we don’t have a damn thing right now. Can we just admit that our babies, our kids, our kids’ teachers are the first responders before the first responders get there?
We can possibly defend ourselves, and AI can help us using non-lethal means to defend ourselves, to enable our kids in their schools to defend themselves, when some evil person brings in an AR15 to attack the innocents. We CAN fight back.
Starting SOMA Robotics is why I went to San Francisco for the last year. To try to get funding to save lives.
I don’t know the game. But surely someone out there does. Please?
I’ve been busting my ass trying to get funding for Tendenci in the valley since 2011. As I’ve said before, I have a phd in f’n up. Yet damnit, this might work. Right?
I still believe that we CAN reduce the impact of mass shooters at schools and other “soft targets” using existing technology.
Watch the video. Slow it down and then if you think it has potential, the potential to help US THE PEOPLE, THE KIDS, FIGHT BACK before our heroic first responders arrive, then please HELP ME.
This isn’t about the money, it’s about the kids.
