In a news item oddly reminiscent of the Mass Effect series, the United States Navy will be running a limited-time browser based game that anyone can join to "help us design our Navy for a post-Singularity world". Singularity is the concept that artificial intelligence will ultimately and fundamentally alter human civilization. Tthe US Navy will be launching a browser title for a week to "crowdsource" ideas.
The game is called "Massive Multiplayer Online Wargame Leveraging the Internet, or MMOWGLI:
A tidal wave of change is rapidly approaching today's Navy. We can ride this wave and harness its energy, or get crushed by it. There is no middle ground. What is the nature of this change? The SINGULARITY. We can see the SINGULARITY on the horizon. What we can't see, YET, is what lies OVER that horizon. That's where you come in. Help us design our Navy for the Post-Singularity World.
