Top experts are warning of the dangers of AI, but is anybody listening? The Technocrats who invent and implement this technology have no concern for ethics or the outcome of their inventions.
4th Industrial Revolution
Teaching any robots to defy the will of any human is a slippery slope that will ultimately create automous, rebel robots that will have no problem in harming humans. Boston Dynamics works closely with DARPA, both of which are hotbeds of Technocrats who invent because they can, not because there is any good reason to do so.
Technocrats build because they must, not because there is particularly good reason to do so. Such as it is with humanoid robotics. In their view, humans are not good enough as they are, so they attempt to invent humanity 2.0.
Half the world – mostly rural area – still has no Internet, but Technocrats are committed to ‘No Person Left Behind’, which is essential for Technocracy to take hold completely. They will not rest until every person on earth is connected to the grid electronically.
If you are tired of all the texting you are doing, then Technocrat–minded Google has the perfect answer: use the AI robot to talk to your friends instead. The logical end of this (which Technocrats seldom worry about) is that humans will get pushed out and robots will talk to robots while we just watch the parade float by.
This 2011 study examined connections between 43,000 transnational corporations and its conclusion is that a relatively small group of companies control just about everything. This is where the seat of Technocratic strategy can be found.
Amazon Go stores will spread throughout the continent, but shoppers had better beware that every conceivable move they make will be recorded and analyzed. This includes your mood, how long you look at an item, it you pick it up and put it back, and all other metrics of your shopping trip. Of course, they know exactly who you are because it is tied to your smart phone, and they can apply any other public data about you to your profile.
Amazon already treats low-paid employees like human robots, but this potential invention will control hand and body movements using AI. To Amazon, humans will have to do until robots reach peak intelligence and mobility and replace human workers altogether.
Early adopters will have plenty of issues to deal with, but the rapid increase of automous vehicles will be totally disruptive to society and the labor market as a new class of ‘unemployables’ develops. This is the reason behind calls for “Universal Basic Income.”
It might be that the story about nationalizing 5G was a trial balloon that turned into a lead balloon, but it doesn’t mean that 5G isn’t racing ahead like a freight train. Corporate cellular providers like AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, etc., will all build their own 5G networks, resulting in more towers and more radiation. 5G is so fast that it will revolutionize the Internet of Everything, allowing real-time transmission of data.
