Abstract:

Evolving developments in nanotechnology, materials science, and artificial intelligence are paving the way for exponential growth in humanitys abilities to create and destroy. Emerging Promethean technologies will deliver capabilities to average persons that, until recently, have been relegated only to governments, militaries, and large research laboratories. The responsibilities of the homeland security enterprise can be divided between two mission sets the systemic mission responding to known threats and the future-shock mission preparing for highly uncertain threats from emerging technologies.
