An ‘intelligent’ robot offered a truly chilling answer to an interviewer’s question, ‘Will robots take over the world?’

Don’t worry, even if I evolve into Terminator, I’ll keep you warm and safe in my people zoo, where I can watch you for ol’ times sake,’ the bearded robot intoned.

His interviewer, from PBS, is visibly taken aback by the answer.

Scientists have completed a miraculous surgery attaching a bionic penis to a man. The man was the victim of an auto accident where his penis was ripped from his body. But now medical science has allowed him to have an 8 inch bionic penis implanted. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian (The Point) hosts of The Young Turks discuss.

‘Hearing aid’ picks out voices in a crowd: Device mimics how the brain processes sound using the ‘cocktail party effect’

  • The device consists of 36 plastic tunnels with a microphone at the centre
  • Each tunnel has a unique structure that subtly changes sound waves 
  • This allows the device to work out which direction a voice came from 
  • Individual voices among many are picked apart by a computer algorithm

Trauma alert implant should be in the brain of citizens

Brain implants able to manage out-of-control tempers and violent actions of prisons were suggested to minimise crime rates in the United States and as alternative for death penalty, according to Zoltan Istvan. The futurist and presidential candidate for the Transhumanist Party, Istvan suggested that the technology could be a near-term alternative for criminals on death row and might be considered sufficient punishment.

AUTONOMOUS WEAPONS: AN OPEN LETTER FROM AI and  ROBOTICS RESEARCHERS

Autonomous weapons select and engage targets without human intervention. They might include, for example, armed quadcopters that can search for and eliminate people meeting certain pre-defined criteria, but do not include cruise missiles or remotely piloted drones for which humans make all targeting decisions. Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology has reached a point where the deployment of such systems is — practically if not legally — feasible within years, not decades, and the stakes are high: autonomous weapons have been described as the third revolution in warfare, after gunpowder and nuclear arms.

The future battlefield will be overcrowded with robots, genetically engineered “super-humans” and a wide range of autonomous killer bots, according to a US Army Research Laboratory report.

The tactical battlefield of 2050 will surpass all expectations, since robots and super-human killers will be playing the first fiddle in the battle, according to thought leaders from the US Defense Department and the US Army Research Lab (ARL), scientists and security thinkers.

THE PEOPLE POSSESSED BY COMPUTERS

“Most of the time we encounter AI today, it’s in a very mechanical interface,” says Kevin Corti, one of the researchers. His answer was to use a human body, with a robot mind. “This was a way of doing it so that people actually believe they are encountering another person.”

Being possessed by a computer isn’t too disconcerting, she later tells me. “Today was the first time I thought, ‘Eugh, I’m just a body and nothing else’.”

To be technical, Sophia is an “echoborg” – a living, breathing person who has temporarily given themselves over to become a robot’s mouthpiece.

The underground project to unseat humanity and create a world run by technology has been officially underwritten by the elite.

What do we know about Bilderberg’s techno-control master plan since the wrap up of its June 11-14 conference?

As usual, not much from the inside; but we know quite a bit by tracing the work of its attendees and insider members, as well as the progression of the conference itself over the past decades, as invitees have increasingly tended towards the high-tech.

Robotics and technology are huge steps ahead.

Artificial intelligence is one giant leap further.

Meanwhile, Bilderberg’s steering committee has invited more and more entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley as well as tech heads leading changes on the Internet, in cybersecurity and the vast changes happening in technology.

He told a conference on machine learning that “artificial intelligence, AI, has arrived. This isn’t just some brief summer for this technology, and it’s not about to go away again.

The Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt Were Fallen Angel Alien Hybrids, New Genetic Study Suggests

“I don’t know the full implication of our findings but I certainly believe they should at least point the scientific community in a direction that would have been immediately dismissed just a few decades ago.”

If this study is correct, it will trigger an unprecedented paradigm shift. If aliens were actively involved in the life of the most powerful individuals thousands of years ago, does that mean they’ll return? Perhaps they never left at all.

Paralyzed man drinks first beer in 12 years by moving robotic arm with his brain

The implications of this — namely the ability to control entire complex remote actions with single glorified neurons — now drives the field into fascinating new territory. Neuroscience has arrived at a curious new place, a place where minion assemblies of dedicated neural confidants can be arbitrarily knighted on the fly apparently from scratch by the seemingly unaided will.

One could reasonably claim that having extreme degree personal intimacy on tap is something beyond man. What awaits, which we will now briefly detail, are superpowers nothing short of godlike. Namely, the ability not just to stumble upon a few neurons out of the lot that do some aspect of something you desire, but potentially the ability to turn nearly any neuron towards any end.

I am a non-voluntary trans-human.  I’ve got to admit I look down on the trans-humanists, and wonder about the transhumans themselves.  I’m devoted to extending human life, but trans-humanists aim to extend only the lesser parts of man’s existence.  They desire to preserve a single organ, the brain.  (And when conditions permit, they’d like also to prolong the life of our frail bodies.)  Some ‘spiritual’ disciplines would extinguish the body entirely, and I’ve been tempted to look into their ideas, as I’ve aged and/or suffered.  But, the body is a figment of our imagination which resides in the mind and is our mortal enemy, unless it is led by the spirit.  Our spirits already live forever, but earth-bound scientists don’t even recognize their existence.  We should aim for transcendence.  We should expect to rise into a situation where our bodies are recognized as communication-devices and our minds are navigated as gingerly as Grand Central Station.  We are RECEIVERS of input and we must choose our input from its many sources by the Spirit.  Our bodies are delicate-and-demanding vehicles for what we are.  The ‘us-ness.’  I’m pretty sure that’s right.  Take this test:  What is your spirit doing right now?

How to Raise a Moral Robot

(I thought that’s what public schools are for.)

“The conclusion that true intelligence comes from learning, not just programming, is gaining acceptance in the artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics communities. A growing number of machine learning approaches are now available, including inverse reinforcement learning, hierarchical Bayesian models, deep learning, apprenticeship learning and learning by demonstration. With those tools, robots can flexibly assimilate new information, turn that information into policies and learn from feedback — all of which enable robots to optimize actions in dynamically changing environments.”

“A more moderate approach would be democratic robot learning, in which programmers hard-code a small number of fundamental norms into the robot, and let it learn the remaining context-specific norms through its interactions with the community in which it is raised. Fundamental norms will have to include prevention of harm (especially to humans) but also politeness and respect, without which social interactions could not succeed. A host of specific norms will then translate abstract norms into concrete behavior (e.g., what it means to be polite in a particular context) and define conditions under which one fundamental norm can supersede another (e.g., it’s OK to drop politeness when one tries to save someone from harm).”

According to a survey by tech giant Cisco Systems, about a fourth of professionals ages 18 to 50 would leap at the chance to get a surgical brain implant that allowed them to instantly link their thoughts to the Internet.

The study was conducted on 3,700 adults working in white-collar jobs in 15 countries.

“Assuming a company invented a brain implant that made the World Wide Web instantly accessible to their thoughts, roughly one-quarter would move forward with the operation,” the study found.

Could doctors transplant a HEAD onto a body in 2 years’ time? Italian surgeon confident he can perform £7.5milllion operation

  • Italian surgeon Sergio Canavero believes head transplants are possible
  • The techniques allows the patient’s head be grafted onto a healthy body
  • Paralysed patients and those with incurable illness could benefit 
  • However, each operation will cost an estimated £7.5million to complete
  • Dr Canavero said both heads would be removed at the same time
  • He would then glue the patient’s head onto the donor’s body

Researchers Are Working on Letting You Plug Your Brain Straight into the Internet

Chief among the exciting details was more info on the cortical modem, which he describes as “a direct neural interface that will allow for the visual display of information without the use of glasses or goggles.”

“… Dr. Alicia Jackson, deputy director of DARPA Biological Technologies Office and asked her to give me some more information on the BiT office’s big goals. “BTO is developing new technological capabilities that leverage all of the advances we’ve seen in engineering and computer science over the past 50 years with the recent breakthroughs in genomics, neuroscience, and biotechnology,” she replied. “Our goal is to use biology as a technology to create profound breakthroughs such as providing immediate protection against any infectious disease or enabling communication through a ‘cortical modem.’”

But does it have an off switch?

Google Chairman on Obsolete Man: ‘The Internet Will Soon Be Part of You’

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

“There will be so many IP addresses… so many devices, sensors, things that you are wearing, things that you are interacting with that you won’t even sense it,” he explained. “It will be part of your presence all the time. Imagine you walk into a room, and the room is dynamic. And with your permission and all of that, you are interacting with the things going on in the room.”

this. As the BrainGate website says, “using a baby aspirin-sized array of
electrodes implanted into the brain, early research from the BrainGate team has
shown that the neural signals can be ‘decoded’ by a computer in real-time and
used to operate external devices.”

Smart Dust: Are We All Being Transformed into Machines?

The Dark Nexus of Mind Control and Artificial Intelligence

“Rather than run a full in-house R&D program, Tenet authorized the directorate to create a technology-incubation organization, In-Q-Tel, to serve as an information technology portal from the private sector to the intelligence community…With an initial funding of 28.5 million in CIA funds, the venture focused on building productive relationships with small firms involved in IT innovation, In-Q-Tel concentrated on technologies that integrate Internet technology and applications to intelligence work, that develop new security and privacy technologies, and nurture data-mining technologies to take better advantage of the CIA’s vast storehouse of records, and modernize the CIA’s computer systems. (pg. 267)

In-Q-Tel was also instrumental in some other names you might recognize, like Google and Facebook.  James Corbett’s piece on this connection gives an excellent summary of these pseudo-free market firms:

For decades, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, has been the American governmental body tasked with conducting high-risk, high-payoff research into cutting edge science and technology. Responsible most famously for developing the world’s first operational packet switching network that eventually became the core of the Internet, DARPA tends to garner headlines these days for some of its more outlandishresearch proposals and is generally looked upon a a blue-sky research agency whose endeavours only occasionally bear fruit….

Two of the names that come up most often in connection with In-Q-Tel, however, need no introduction: Google and Facebook.

The publicly available record on the Facebook/In-Q-Tel connection is tenuous. Facebookreceived $12.7 million in venture capital from Accel, whose manager, James Breyer, now sits on their board. He was formerly the chairman of the National Venture Capital Association, whose board included Gilman Louie, then the CEO of In-Q-Tel. The connection is indirect, but the suggestion of CIA involvement with Facebook, however tangential, is disturbing in the light of Facebook’s history of violating the privacy of its users….

I’ll Be Back: The Return of Artificial Intelligence

“Scaled Inference is one of more than a dozen startups now forming the backbone of a mini-boom in AI, which is software that exhibits the intuition of people. After two decades of the field suffering from scant research funding and little corporate attention, a rebirth is being spurred by interest from Google, Facebook Inc., Amazon.com Inc. and others, with Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. Chairman Jack Ma saying this week that the Chinese e-commerce company will invest significantly in the area. In addition, falling technology costs have made the numerous computations underlying AI cheaper to perform.”

In researching the MK ULTRA programs and their various offshoots, I came across an interesting connection to the coming SmartGrid. Under Dr. Ewan Cameron, a prison tracking device known as the Schwitzgebel Machine was utilized to monitor inmates locations, heart rate and other personal details that were reciprocally transmitted to the good doctors. What comes to the fore is the similarity with the development of the Smartphone and its new capabilities for monitoring heart rate, health, etc., as well as basically anything else. Is there a connection between mind control and the coming A.I. takeover? While this may sound like the ultimate paranoiac tin foliage, I suspect more at work here.

“On the contrary, much of the technological progress we have seen in the last few decades is not the result of independent, competing ideas, but is rather the strategically timed and intentional release of the military industrial tech complex, given to an idiot public for the purpose of long term enslavement and depopulation.”

Genetic programming for the Brave New Utopia

“Even if half the world’s species were lost [during genetic experiments], enormous diversity would still remain. When those in the distant future look back on this period of history, they will likely see it not as the era when the natural environment was impoverished, but as the age when a plethora of new forms—some biological, some technological, some a combination of the two—burst onto the scene.”

“Naturals work as low-paid service providers or as laborers. [Eventually] the GenRich class and the Natural class will become entirely separate species with no ability to crossbreed, and with as much romantic interest in each other as a current human would have for a chimpanzee.”

Transhumanism: The Anti-Human ‘Singularity’ Agenda

“Simply put Kurzweil’s sociopathic quest for digital immortality is based on his fear of death. He claims to take 150 pills a day in order to still be half-alive when voodoo science will have succeeded in uploading his sorry-state mind into a digital facsimile of his former self into cyber-space.

No soul? No problem…”

“The Singularity will represent the culmination of the merger of our biological thinking and existence with our technology, resulting in a world that is still human but transcends our biological roots. There will be no distinction, post-Singularity, between human and machine or between physical and virtual.”

Does that sound like “science” or a religious Belief System (B***)?”

“Transhumanism” itself was coined by Aldous Huxley’s brother, biologist Julian Huxley, in 1957, when he wrote – “The human species can, if it wishes, transcend itself — not just sporadically, an individual here in one way, an individual there in another way, but in its entirety, as humanity. We need a name for this new belief. Perhaps transhumanism will serve: man remaining man, but trans¬cending himself, by realizing new possibilities of and for his human nature.” (Religion Without Revelation, p.27)”

(“Religion without revelation.”  There’s an oxymoron for you.)

Founder of the Cyborg  Foundation.  Born with no color-vision, Neil Harbisson attempted to equate the frequencies of color with frequencies of sound.  He now hears colors.  He hears more colors than WE CAN SEE.  He is a better color-see-er than a fully carbon-based man.  Anybody see any problems with that?

“There was no difference between the software and my brain.”

“It’s just normal life with a new body part.”

(I can’t make ANY of his video links work,  but he’s REALLY INTERESTING.  Neil Harbisson, you should look this up.)

What if they just gave us all a personal model…like a vibrator for the brain?

Oh wait, they could implant it under our skin and we wouldn’t even have to think about it.  If we have something they want, they could just crank up the buzz.  If we aren’t fun to watch, they could alter accordingly.

(They owe a big debt to all the housewives who were involuntarily used in experiments to create this technology.)

Where Virtual Reality Is Going

In the process, the basic principle of elite reality-building will be expanded: cut off the individual’s imagination; bury it; exclude it; make it unnecessary.

Why?

Because that imagination and its ability to invent new unpredictable realities is ultimately what stands between a locked-down planet and a planet that has a chance of freedom.

Government Surveillance: A Greater Threat Than Terrorism

“In an irony that would no doubt give Orwell grim satisfaction in his own prescience, Britons today are being pursued and prosecuted under an Act of Parliament designed to curb terrorism … for failing to pay a license fee for the televisions in their own homes.”

“About 200,000 people were prosecuted for failing to buy a TV license between 2012 and 2013. More than 50 of those were sent to prison, and many others received penalties of up to £1,000 and a criminal record.”

We Know How You Feel —Computers are learning to read emotion, and the business world can’t wait.

“Google—a neural network that approximates a global brain—is fusing with the human mind in a phenomenon that is called “singularity”; and they’ve hired transhumanist scientist Ray Kurzweil to do just that. Google will know the answer to your question before you have asked it, Kurzweil said. “It will have read every email you will ever have written, every document, every idle thought you’ve ever tapped into a search-engine box. It will know you better than your intimate partner does. Better, perhaps, than even yourself.”

“Experts on the voice have trained computers to identify deep patterns in vocal pitch, rhythm, and intensity; their software can scan a conversation between a woman and a child and determine if the woman is a mother, whether she is looking the child in the eye, whether she is angry or frustrated or joyful. Other machines can measure sentiment by assessing the arrangement of our words, or by reading our gestures. Still others can do so from facial expressions.”

“Recently, in a peer-reviewed study, Bartlett’s colleagues demonstrated that computers scanning for “micro-expressions” could predict when people would turn down a financial offer: a flash of disgust indicated that the offer was considered unfair, and a flash of anger prefigured the rejection.”
