ABOUT HUMANAWARE.ORG

 

My non-profit Human Aware Corporation (nowadays HumanAware.ORG) was founded back in Santa Barbara, California, USA on January 1 of year 2000. Armed with 172 .com .net and .org domain names back then, I chose not to proceed with the deployment of these websites then. I did not want to have my web sites polluted with ads.

So, time has passed and the Napster, Bittorrent, Piratebay, Google Maps, Google Mail, Google Tube, Google Brain and Facebook (to mention only a few) were born on our planet.

All this time between year 2000 and 2017,  I have been operating using a non-profit business model and developing remote sensing, audio and video open source software applications and publishing all of these apps and that code for free online over the web.

In fall 2017, in the era of Artificial Intelligence (AI), decentralized blockchain exchanges and emerging cryptocurrencies, I decided to return to a for-profit business model developing remote sensing AI software applications to be used by ministries of natural resources in governments. In short, to continue the software development of the Offworld Intelligent Forest Image Interpreter (OIFII) interactive application that I started in January 1995 and had interrupted in September 2001.

My organization OIFII.ORG is now operating from Montreal, Quebec, Canada with the mission to push the limits of AI at the service of governments.

At the same time, in fall 2017, my organization HumanAware.ORG also operating from Montreal, Quebec, Canada has the mission to protect humans from Artificial Intelligence (AI) and to encourage humans to collaborate together to actively participate in global and local peace building. I believe resolutions such as UN resolution 2250 can be implemented not only globally but also locally in our society. See UN resolution 2250 document at http://unoy.org/wp-content/uploads/SCR-2250.pdf

More precisely, in the years to come, HumanAware.ORG will not only encourage women and youth to engage in global peace building efforts for countries abroad, but will strongly encourage all local citizens to engage in local peace building efforts for their own local territories, cities, regions, provinces, states and country.

In 2015, the United Nations adopted resolution 2250 on the peace building process (as opposed to the peace keeping process that has existed since around 1945 after the Second World War). For Canadians see http://unac.org/unac-projects/youthaspeacebuilders/

In 2017, November 14 and 15, the Canadian Army held a conference on this topic, see  https://www.canada.ca/en/department-national-defence/campaigns/peacekeeping-defence-ministerial.html

HumanAware.ORG plans on encouraging citizens to remotely participate to peace building by communicating electronically and anonymously to individuals of interest selected by the public security and the national defence. All the communications from the citizens would be filtered by the national security, i.e. in Canada the https://www.csis-scrs.gc.ca/index-en.php.

HumanAware.ORG will encourage citizens not only to participate in voting during elections but will also encourage citizens write communications for the local and global peace building process.

HumanAware.ORG will always encourage citizens to communicate positively and respectfully in private as well as in public.

HumanAware.ORG will not encourage any form of physical social activism in public.

Although HumanAware.ORG will encourage religion-neutral governments along with its people to have faith, HumanAware.ORG is not a religion.

HumanAware.ORG will be transparent.

HumanAware.ORG will encourage new laws to be adopted for local peace building and plans to help in the coaching of concerned groups of citizens towards compliance and certifications.

You can help empower HumanAware.ORG to encourage citizens to participate in the local peace building process of Canada, Quebec and Montreal in 2018 and 2019.

You will be able to watch the progress in the Canadian and Quebec society.

BIOGRAPHY

Stephane Poirier is a pioneer in Vorotrans art – art made out of transparent Voronoi diagrams. Poirier currently works as a software developer at OIFII.ORG and he is also OIFII.ORG’s founder. At OIFII.ORG, Voronoi diagrams are used, for individual tree level forest texture recognition out of airborne Lidar data, in order to automate the process of building new forest maps for governments. In 2017, Poirier had the idea to use these Voronoi diagrams combined with a specific algorithm to produce semi-abstract art called Vorotrans art.

For the years to come, OIFII.ORG will integrate more and more Artificial Intelligence (AI) into its software applications and components dedicated to empower governments and people with AI.

At the same time, through his HumanAware.ORG organization, Poirier will protect humans from AI and encourage humans to unite and to participate in global and local peace building on Earth.

Poirier has held many research positions at Laval University, University of Alberta, University of British Columbia, University of Masssachusetts in Boston, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Sherbrooke and McGill University. Over the years, Poirier has also held many corporate positions in Quebec and California. He has developed commercial software for EXFO, MATROX, ISERA, CJ and XEROX.
