Technocrats in the military who build simply because they can, are a threat to the entire world. Technology that serves and helps humans, not kill or control them, is what mankind desires.
Talk of a ban on autonomous killer robots is useless chatter as the arms race between superpowers progresses. AI and networking are enabling fearsome weapons systems that can kill without human intervention.
Technocracy in China is a greater threat to the world than military domination, although the two could go hand-in-hand. Technocracy means total Scientific Dictatorship and China is racing to complete its global net.
Pentagon Technocrats are having a heyday with AI. The report states, “AI is poised to transform every industry, and is expected to impact every corner of the Department, spanning operations, training, sustainment, force protection, recruiting, healthcare, and many others.”
Thanks to China, the Technocrat arms race for autonomous killing machines has accelerated as they proliferate their new weapons systems to any non-Western aligned nation in the world.
One way to stop Technocracy dead in its tracks would be to destroy electronics on a massive scale. However, if Technocrats are controlling foreign/military policy, that will never happen because it essential for societal control.
War-minded Technocrats within DARPA have one answer for wiping out the enemy: autonomous machines. When DARPA first released Sea-Hunter, there were pledges that it was only for surveillance and not killing. The flip-flop was easily foreseen.
Make no mistake about geo-engineering and HAARP: It is driven by Technocrats in the military to weaponize weather against other superpowers. Messing with the ionosphere is potentially existential to humanity.
Robot trucks carrying drone swarms, robot soldiers, autonomous artillery, autonomous missiles; what could go wrong with this? Military Technocrats who insist that technology is the answer to all problems are turning the world into a technological kill zone.
It has already been demonstrated that AI algorithms exhibit the biases of their creators, so why not murderous intents as well? Technocrats are so absorbed with their Pollyanna inventions that they cannot see the logical end of their existence.
