As governments ramp up the AI arms race to direct autonomous robots with a ‘licensed to kill’, the risk horrible mistakes rises as well, including the possibility of starting a robot war.
It is amazing that NPR would print anything on the CIA’s infamous and horrific MK-Ultra program from the Cold War era. Repatriated Technocrat scientists from Nazi Germany played a key role after WWII.
Technocrats at defense contractors have developed a hybrid targeting system using drones and AI that find their own targets, then coordinate with artillery-launch missiles for destruction.
Talking lasers can send audible messages directly into your head from up to hundreds of miles away. When perfected, this technology will be used by military and civilian applications to control crowds and individuals.
Equipped with AI for instantaneous targeting, directed energy weapons are the future of warfare. The Navy is the first adopter but as weapon size shrinks, they will become ubiquitous.
Weaponizing weather has been a military goal since WWI, but as global warming hysteria proceeded, it was used to ‘cool’ the earth. However, weather does not respect national borders and what one country does can radically affect the weather in its neighbors.
Dwight D. Eisenhower warned America about the danger posed by the military-industrial complex but in the same light, he also of a technological elite. It is now more apparent than ever that two forces have merged into a single column.
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.
Technocrats at DARPA are racing to apply Artificial Intelligence to engaged warfare, coordinating all battlefield components into a coordinated killing machine. Success depends on engineers and computer programmers.
