And the reason?
The Earth is possibly doomed, one way or another. The database would give any aliens attempting to rescue Humankind a list of healthy individuals, I mean in a genetic sense. So that they could harvest DNA material or the actual people themselves? People free from genetically inherited diseases.
If you were going to save a population or a species, you'd want a healthy batch to start with wouldn't you?
Any thoughts on this, I know it's far fetched but is it possible?
As the Third Reich embarked upon its plan of conquest and genocide, IBM and its subsidiaries helped create enabling technologies, step-by-step, from the identification and cataloging programs of the 1930s to the selections of the 1940s.
But IBM's Hollerith punch card technology did exist. Aided by the company's custom-designed and constantly updated Hollerith systems, Hitler was able to automate his persecution of the Jews. Historians have always been amazed at the speed and accuracy with which the Nazis were able to identify and locate European Jewry. Until now, the pieces of this puzzle have never been fully assembled. The fact is, IBM technology was used to organize nearly everything in Germany and then Nazi Europe, from the identification of the Jews in censuses, registrations, and ancestral tracing programs to the running of railroads and organizing of concentration camp slave labor.
