Considering AIs are pretty much a reality now, the question has to be asked as to HOW to we mere mortals keep up? Did you know that this is one of the major reasons that transhumanists are wanting to enhance themselves! I have given you plenty of posts to let you know where this world is heading, and it is heading into a world that blurs the human world and the computer world. Humanity is going to look very different in the not so distant future.
Did you also know that at least 61% of internet users aren’t even human?!?! All of these AI bots are busy gathering information to be used in various ways. Personal advertising, What your thoughts are, EVEN if you have had a second thought on posting them, Who you hang out with and WHERE! There’s even a google drone that is taking pictures of those hard to get places that google maps miss!
Google has even purchased the cutting-edge robotics firm which supplies mobile research robots for the Pentagon. The tech giant is keeping secret what it will produce with the acquired technology.
Boston Dynamics, an engineering company that designs robots like BigDog, Cheetah, WildCat, and Atlas, is now the eighth robotic company to join Google’s ranks in the last six months, the company confirmed Friday, according to The New York Times. [source]
Daily I read of the advances made to supposedly enhance our lives in this ever increasing technocratic/human blur! Most of us don’t really hear of these things on the nightly news, and most can’t put the pieces of the puzzle together. But I do know that some are. As one of my friends says all the time… faster and faster!
Imagine a half dozen companies and nations fielding computers that rival or surpass human intelligence, all at about the same time. Imagine what happens when those computers themselves become expert at programming smart computers. Imagine sharing the planet with AIs thousands or millions of times more intelligent than we are. And all the while the deepest pockets are weaponizing the best of this technology.
