Really excellent, must-read article at Sibel Edmonds’ online news site Boiling Frogs Post by writer Erik Moshe interviewing AI scientist Dr. Steve Omohondro and covering a range of technologies–the status of current drone technologies, the status of current AI (Artificial Intelligence) computers and systems and why they are both inadequate and sinister, and views on Transhumanism (start of article here, please click over to Boiling Frogs Post for the whole article and interview):
The New Drone Order is Only Beginning: Intro- All is Buzzing on the Geopolitical Front
Drone technology is moving forward, whether we like it or not. MQ-9 Reapers manufactured by General Atomics are sold to the U.S. Air Force, fitted with hellfire missiles provided by Lockheed Martin. The military industrial complex is ticking, unmanned aerial vehicles are soaring, and all is not quiet on the Western front. Few places are quiet on the Eastern hilt of the world. Drone strikes pepper Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, and Afghanistan, as the world has become an all-access battlefield where remote-controlled homicide can be carried out with minimal effort, for the first time in human history.
Things are changing. Warfare has been altered forever. Machines are learning…how to learn. Humans are doing less of the hunting and killing and delegating these duties to tougher, colder customers.
