The genie is already out of the bottle, but advanced AI researchers are now very concerned about how their creations will be used in autonomous warfare. AI is close to becoming self-replicating, meaning that rogue applications bent on killing humans could multiply until the human race is extinguished.
Technocrat Elon Musk is afraid that AI super-intelligence poses an existential threat to humanity and the issue is over control. Technocrats themselves want to socially engineer the planet with science and technology, but autonomous AI would be direct competition. In other words, the very technology they are compelled to create is already backfiring on them.
Robots are being deployed as fighting machines and as healing machines. While implantable monitors for warriors may seem sensible, is this the technology you want spread throughout society? It would not take much for government, insurance companies, HMO’s, etc., to mandate such devices to track your health 24×7.
Technocrats will always choose a technological solution to any problem, in this case, how to kill the enemy. These weapons should be banned before they are fully armed and equipped with AI. The Army will spend over $1 billion on robots in the next few years.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is readying a new start this summer that will focus on cross domain battle management. Craig Lawrence, program manager…
The results of Boston Dynamics inventions are fed back to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to be used in creating super-soldiers that can dominate the battlefield. What could go wrong with that? It will also result in the complete domination of civilian populations as well. Both Boston Dynamics and DARPA are filled with Technocrats who invent because they can, not because there is an ethical reason for doing so.
It is already publicly acknowledged that in the future, Sea Hunter will be equipped with missiles, torpedoes or other armaments to build “a human-machine collaborative battle fleet.” WWIII will be fought with autonomous drones. We can thank the Technocrats at DARPA for this ‘mad science’.
Technocrat engineers create because they can, not because they have a moral base to do so. A few short years ago, the military swore they would not create killer drones or robots. Now they are building with impunity. Well, they lied. When WWIII starts, it will be a drone/robot war.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is a hotbed of technocrats bent on developing technology for warfare; it continues to push its swarming drone initiative using AI and innovative sensor technology.
As the global military arms race escalates, it is becoming more certain that WWIII will be fought primarily with robots equipped with AI. Augmented reality will replace face-to-face combat and the specter of death will be minimized.
