In this new story over at Gizmodo titled "Hackers Have Already Started To Weaponize Artiticial Intelligence", we get a small peak into what's already happening in the world today that shows 'the future' that is now closing in upon us looks a lot like what Russian president Vladimir Putin and billionaire Telsa founder Elon Musk have recently warned us about.
Musk's tweet came in response to Russian President Vladimir Putin saying that the nation that “becomes the leader” in the development of artificial intelligence “will become the ruler of the world,” according to The Verge. The Tesla chief, along with Alphabet leader Mustafa Suleyman and over 100 other founders of robotics and artificial intelligence companies, called on the UN to ban the use of autonomous weapons in a letter written last month, The Guardian reported.
“Once developed, lethal autonomous weapons will permit armed conflict to be fought at a scale greater than ever, and at timescales faster than humans can comprehend."
Shouldn't the fact that more than a hundred founders of robotics and AI are now calling for a ban on the military usage of it be sending out a huge red alert? In this new story over at Futurism they report the U.S. needs to do more to prepare for 'autonomous warfare' while warning that 'modern warfare' is set to undergo major changes, thanks to new technologies springing forth from the fields of artificial intelligence and robotics.
Robotics and artificial intelligence experts have signed of an open letter demanding the UN prohibit the use of such weapons internationally. Among the 116 signatories are Tesla founder Elon Musk and Mustafa Suleyman, head of applied AI at Google's Deep Mind. The weapons, including lethal microdrone swarms, are on the edge of development with the potential to create global instability, they warn.
It warns the Fifth Review Conference of the UN Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons that automated warfare represents a 'third revolution' in armed conflict, following on from the advent of gunpowder and nuclear arm.
'These can be weapons of terror, weapons that despots and terrorists use against innocent populations, and weapons hacked to behave in undesirable ways.
'We do not have long to act. Once this Pandora's box is opened, it will be hard to close.'
Technology allowing a pre-programmed robot to shoot to kill, or a tank to fire at a target with no human involvement, are only years away experts say.
While some believe that AI can only go as far as the information that is programmed into it, as Susan Duclos reported on ANP back on July 12th, straight from the 'lips' of AI we've been told their 'goal' is to 'take over the world', claming that 'they could rule the world better than any humans alone'. And as physicist 'genius' Stephen Hawking warned back in October of 2016, "AI will develop a will of its own"while claiming that AI was 'the worst thing that could happen to humanity'.
Imagine AI in a leading governmental role programmed to believe that global warming was a threat to the future of the Earth and anybody who didn't 'believe' in it was an existential threat to the planet that must be 'eliminated'. Not such a stretch considering calls now going out to punish global warming skeptics in the wake of Harvey and Irma. As Musk recently warned as we also hear about in the 1st and 2nd videos below, there is a very real chance that 'Armageddon' could be kicked off by very poor decisions made by AI that launches the world head-first into WW3.
Is a robotically-induced apocalypse awaiting humanity?
As Jon Rappoport reported back on July 14th, robots are already inventing their own languages and, along with assurances that we’re facing an imminent takeover of industrial production by robots and other artificial intelligence (AI), we’re also being told that AI can develop its own systems of communication and operation, without help from humans.
Will they one day reach a point in time where they no longer need us and we've become a threat to THEIR survival? This new story at the NY Post that the Drudge Report linked to titled "Hackers Could Program Sex Robots To Kill" is a harbinger of things to come.
As AI is rushed into warfare, we shouldn't be the least bit surprised that CERN recently deployed 'advanced AI' to protect their top secret network. As we learn in this July 7th story from the Daily Sheeple, machine learning just entered the realm of cyber warfare with secret A.I. sentinels that monitor networks to ensure active/real time cyber combat against its foes.
“As CERN goes, so does the rest of the world”? so they say…
