Technocrat-minded engineers build things according to their own image and then wonder why the rest of the world yawns and says “Get Lost!” In this case, Marty the robot manages to annoy everyone.
Let the battle begin over the color of robots. Charges of racism, counter-charges, lawsuits and label-lynching will be made against racist robots of certain colors. The world has gone mad.
Technocrats believed their own twisted logic and it came around to bite them. For all hype, promises and millions spent, predictive policing is finally being recognized as a total scam.
University of Chicago Medical Center conspired to sell sensitive health records of patients to Google, violating HIPPA and privacy laws. The lawsuit notes, this is “likely the greatest heist of consumer medical records in history.”
Google dominates because it panders to human weaknesses, not strengths. Is the problem then simply systemic, accidental or predestined, or is it specifically designed and directed by humans who have lost their moral and ethical compass?
AI sees humanity itself as a thing to be optimized, squeezing out all inefficiency. When unleashed as your boss, AI effectively turns you into a living robot to be controlled like a puppet on a string. Employees will never tolerate this indefinitely.
Walmart has hired a social engineering company, Everseen, to control and change behavior of its shoppers through the use of AI-based surveillance systems. By surveilling everyone, Walmart hopes to catch a few cheaters.
Georgetown Law lays down the total surveillance society with skilled and documented precision. Detroit and Chicago may be the first to have China-like surveillance with cameras everywhere, but more cities are close behind. Technocracy is coming, and is dangerously close.
Technocrats at DARPA are intent on creating a non-surgical brain-machine interface as a force-multiplier for soldiers. The research will require “Investigational Device Exemptions” from the Administration.
Out of control killer AI in warfare is inevitable because it will become too complex for human management and control. The only real answer is to not developing it in the first place.
