The Dawn Project’s mission is to make computers safe for humanity.
Connecting the power grid, hospitals, and millions of cars to the Internet with software riddled with bugs and security defects has turned these systems into potential weapons of mass destruction at the mercy of hackers.
Ordinary commercial software was never intended to be used in systems which people’s lives depend on.
The first danger The Dawn Project is tackling is Elon Musk’s reckless deployment of unsafe Full Self-Driving cars on our roads. Tesla’s FSD software is the most unreliable safety-critical computer system.
Tesla warns their drivers that FSD “might do the wrong thing at the worst time”. This is an unacceptable statement for a vehicle on public roads.
