So a report from the UN that explosive-carrying quadcopters, deployed during an engagement between rival factions in the Libyan civil war, were thought to have deliberately crashed into targets without being ordered by a human controller, isthe latest sign we're already well on our way towards autonomous, killer A.I. unleashed across the planet. From this Daily Star story saved at Archive before we continue.:
An autonomous weaponized drone “hunted down” a human target last year and is thought to have attacked them without being specifically ordered to, according to a report prepared for the United Nations.
The news raises the specter of terminator-style AI weapons killing on the battlefield without any human control.
The drone, a Kargu-2 quadcopter produced by Turkish military tech company STM, was deployed in March 2020 during a conflict between Libyan government forces and a breakaway military faction led by Khalifa Haftar, commander of the Libyan National Army.
The Kargu-2 is fitted with an explosive charge and the drone can be directed at a target in a kamikaze attack, detonating on impact.
With this May 10th story over at Wired alarmingly reporting that the Pentagon is actually considering allowing A.I. to control weapons and weapons systems, believing that 'intelligent machines' could outperform human operators in complex scenarios, how far away are we now from 'Terminator-style' machines being set loose across America and the world, regularly hunting down human beings autonomously? Probably not far at all as we'll explore in the next section of this story below.

It’s common knowledge, at this point, that artificial intelligence will soon be capable of outworking humans — if not entirely outmoding them — in plenty of areas. How much we’ll be outworked and outmoded, and on what scale, is still up for debate. But in a new interview published by The Guardian over the weekend, Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman had a fairly hot take on the matter: In the battle between AI and humans, he said, it’s going to be an absolute blowout — and humans are going to get creamed.
“Clearly AI is going to win [against human intelligence]. It’s not even close,” Kahneman told the paper. “How people are going to adjust to this is a fascinating problem.”
I’m confident that machine intelligence will be our final undoing. Its potential to wipe out humanity is something I’ve been thinking and writing about for the better part of 20 years. I take a lot of flak for this, but the prospect of human civilization getting extinguished by its own tools is not to be ignored.
There is one surprisingly common objection to the idea that an artificial superintelligence might destroy our species, an objection I find ridiculous. It’s not that superintelligence itself is impossible. It’s not that we won’t be able to prevent or stop a rogue machine from ruining us. This naive objection proposes, rather, that a very smart computer simply won’t have the means or motivation to end humanity.
Loss of control and understanding
Imagine systems, whether biological or artificial, with levels of intelligence equal to or far greater than human intelligence. Radically enhanced human brains (or even nonhuman animal brains) could be achievable through the convergence of genetic engineering, nanotechnology, information technology, and cognitive science, while greater-than-human machine intelligence is likely to come about through advances in computer science, cognitive science, and whole brain emulation.
And now imagine if something goes wrong with one of these systems, or if they’re deliberately used as weapons. Regrettably, we probably won’t be able to contain these systems once they emerge, nor will we be able to predict the way these systems will respond to our requests.
“This is what’s known as the control problem,” Susan Schneider, director at the Center for Future Mind and the author of Artificial You: AI and the Future of the Mind, explained in an email. “It is simply the problem of how to control an AI that is vastly smarter than us.”
With those previously mentioned stories proving that A.I. is already being used as weapons while one US Army General argues we need to give those A.I. weapons complete autonomy to make their own decisions, no wonder Musk is dreaming of humanity on Mars, though if humans can make it there, how far behind would autonomous A.I. be?
So with the very real possibility that humanity in the future might be wiped out by its own creations, especially with A.I. vastly more quick at human being at 'computing', imagine what happens when A.I. comes to a conclusion programmed into them by radical 'global warming' leftists that human beings really are a threat to the future of the planet Earth, a 'problem' to be 'solved' by simply 'eliminating' the problem, us. 'Human hunting expeditions' might not just be a thing of science fiction movies.
With the Massachusetts Institute of Technology recently reporting that A.I. could also be used to 'counter the spread of disinformation', with Democrats/globalists calling practically ANYTHING that goes against their agenda 'disinformation', can you see the massive potential for abuse in that?
George Orwell’s dystopian vision written in his book “Nineteen Eighty-Four” could become a reality by 2024 as artificial intelligence technology becomes the all-seeing eye, a top Microsoft executive warned Thursday.
Microsoft President Brad Smith told BBC’s Panorama George Orwell’s 1984 “could come to pass in 2024” if government regulation doesn’t protect the public against intrusive artificial intelligence surveillance.
“I’m constantly reminded of George Orwell’s lessons in his book ‘1984.’ You know the fundamental story … was about a government who could see everything that everyone did and hear everything that everyone said all the time,” Smith said on BBC while chatting about China’s use of artificial intelligence to monitor its citizens.
"Well, that didn’t come to pass in 1984, but if we’re not careful, that could come to pass in 2024,” Smith continued.
“If we don’t enact the laws that will protect the public in the future, we are going to find the technology racing ahead, and it’s going to be very difficult to catch up.”
He warned that Orwell’s view of a government spying on its citizens around the clock is already a reality in some parts of the world.
Artificial intelligence-led totalitarianism, such as in China, has wiped away the freedoms of its citizens and transformed them into obedient members of the state. A social credit score keeps citizens in check.
To prevent such a dystopia in the West, lawmakers need to act now, explained Smith.
In 2019, the billionaire investor Peter Thiel insisted that artificial intelligence was “literally communist.”
He said artificial intelligence concentrates power to monitor citizens. These surveillance tools know more about a person than they know about themselves.
Artificial intelligence is a crucial tool for governments to adopt an Orwellian state of surveillance and control.
But can we trust lawmakers and “Big Tech” who want to consolidate power to prevent such a dystopia?
It’s hard to say, considering politicians have only one objective: stay in power.
Suppose we can’t trust politicians to protect our freedoms and interests; instead, they side with mega-corporations. In that case, we must raise our understanding of privacy shields that protect us from artificial intelligence spying on us.
So with every day bringing us more and more proof that we've already arrived at the point in time warned of by Brad Smith above, and 'Endgame. Set. Match', the proverbial 'point of no return' possibly much closer than most Americans even realize, imagine a blending of Orwell's 1984 with the movie 'Terminator' to get a picture of what the future may bring us, Big Brother's A.I. forever watching over us.
