Dubai aspires to Technocracy by automating everything with technology. They were the first to introduce robocops on patrol. Dubai also leads the Islamic world in Fintech products and implementations.
4th Industrial Revolution
Employees and labor unions are worried that employers are pressuring them into being microchipped, which could lead to oppressive micro-managment. This is compelling technology to Technocrat managers because it will squeeze even more efficiency from their fleshly robots.
Technocrat Toby Walsh spoke on the future of AI: “Society shapes technology and technology can shape society.” Technocracy is all about social engineering, or shaping society, into man’s image. AI is not the solution to the world’s “wicked” problems.
The video news industry is being disrupted with a cheap technology that reads news as well as a human, all made possible by AI and advanced graphics. Of course, it is China’s latest invention to displace its massive population.
The entire trillion dollar grocery industry is transforming before your eyes as Amazon sparks a robot war with other grocery store enterprises. Stores will be largely free of cashiers, pickers and stockers, putting millions of people out of work. Technocrats invent because they can not because there is a good reason to do so.
This is yet another activity resulting from Obama’s BRAIN Initiative for “mapping the human brain.” BRAIN stands for Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies. Because billions of dollars are being spent on this, technocrat scientists are having a feeding frenzy.
The usefulness of quantum computers is a hotly debated topic, from those who think it is quackery to others who say it’s the future of computing. Regardless, scientists are pouring billions of research dollars into proving commercial uses, such as a hack-proof quantum Internet.
Technocrats value machines and automation over people. China has enough people to staff any number of factories and warehouses, but Technocrat engineers would rather co-opt them by using robots instead. This guarantees runaway income inequality and ultimately, a return to feudalism.
When the UN SDGs promise “lifelong learning experiences”, it means you will have to reinvent yourself multiple times in your lifetime in order to stay working. Your alternative will be to fall into a new class cynically called the “unemployables”.
The Department of Homeland Security seeks to establish a communication connection between emergency and civilian vehicles. Since when is DHS concerned about transportation safety issues? There are Technocrat minds working overtime on this to increase the national surveillance grid.
