CNTR does a lot of research.
Experts study a specific topic.
They want to discover something new.
CNTR does research on good things
and on bad things.
It wants to understand everything.
It wants the research to be used for good things.
We will now explain the research topics
Artificial Intelligence is a science.
The abbreviation is AI.
The goal of the science is:
- Machines should think like humans.
- They should be able to make decisions.
Machines can then also use weapons.
For example, in a war.
A 3D printer can print objects.
It can also print weapons or parts of weapons.
Bio technology is a science.
It is about very tiny living things like bacteria.
Or natural substances from the body.
And it is about how to make other things from them.
For example, good things like medicine.
Or bad things like poison.
Chemistry is a science.
It is about substances like oxygen or carbon.
Many substances are important for humans.
But some substances are harmful to humans.
They can be used as weapons.
Drones are aircraft.
They can fly without people.
They can fly to difficult places.
And they can carry things there.
But drones can also be used in wars.
For example, for fighting.
Cyber here stands for cyber attacks.
Cyber attack means:
Someone wants to steal information
using a computer.
The information is on another computer.
The information is secret.
Nuclear is about nuclear weapons.
Nuclear weapons are very dangerous.
They can destroy a lot.
And many people can get hurt or die.
Nuclear weapons must not be used.
It must be checked whether all countries follow this.
Modern technology can maybe help with checking.
For example, Artificial Intelligence.
Verification is a check.
Some weapons are not allowed to be used.
It has to be checked
whether all countries follow this.
There are satellites in space.
Satellites are devices.
They send information to Earth.
Satellites are important for the military.
