US Military world's first real Artificial Intelligence

The AI space is growing rapidly in markets and in business so we thought a reminder of some key points were in order here.  There are legitimate concerns about a truly intelligent AI system that may render humans 'useless' - not likely to result in a Terminator style scenario but any scenario where AI is making decisions and not humans - at the detriment to humans - should be closely monitored.  The decline of USA, corporatism, fascism, corporate abuses, market manipulation, is well documented on Zero Hedge and no need to elaborate more on it.  America Inc. was bought and sold many times over that any hope of real democracy (if there ever was) is only a line item on a financial statement.  Democracy simply isn't profitable.  We explain this in our book Splitting Pennies.

But largely, the argument is one of a libertarian anti-fascist revolutionary, as if these Corporations could be overthrown and replaced by .. what? (is not clear).  This is all very honorable but impractical - but this is really all on the surface.  What if a closer, more in depth analysis paints a picture that it isn't greedy humans in control of the system, but the world's first Artificial Intelligence?  What is Intelligence, anyway?  

Groups such as Corporations, Countries, and even Planet Earth (Gaia Theory) are said to have an intelligence of their own, as the sum of the parts is something more than just the sum.  Since World War 2, the US Military in particular has developed one can say a brain of it's own.  It is an entity controlled by no man, no group of men, not even the President.  Bill Clinton said famously when he got in the Oval office, he wants to know 2 things:  Who killed JFK and the truth about UFOs.  He was told by the CIA director at that time it was on a need to know basis and he didn't need to know.  Can you imagine!

The point is that, there isn't a 'conspiracy' - the truth is that the US Military apparatus is out of control.  It has become an entity that makes decisions by itself.  If a general or agent doesn't agree with the brain, they are fired, shot, or stabbed in the back 10 times.

There's nothing that even a US President can do, as we saw with JFK.  He started to investigate this phenomenon, and it didn't end well.  This perspective may be the key to unlocking the real truth of how our current system is functioning.  What is the real driver of the US economy?  It's not 'the profit motive' as many US capitalists will have you believe, because America's biggest corporation, the US government itself, is the most unprofitable entity in the history of human history.

So here is where Elon Musk is a bit of a hypocrite.  On the one hand, he's screaming about the dangers of AI and that we are nearing a singularity, where they could really 'take over' (we don't know what that might mean).  It's a valid point, a scary and important topic that needs to be addressed before there is a problem (because after an event may occur it may be too late).  But on the other hand, Musk's companies like SpaceX are surviving on DOD contracts thus supporting the AI beast.

Darpa has invested billions upon billions of dollars in thousands of technologies, including but not limited to AI.  The stuff they have now, if we wrote about it, people simply would think it's science fiction.  But if we just look at the computing power they have available to them compared with 10 years ago, we can get a sense of how powerful this AI really is.  But what is scary, this intelligent system, we call the US military, it is a weaponized system.  And to make it more scary, much of the weaponization is being automated via software automation, robotics, and other automation systems.  Fortunately for now, the intelligent system needs human society to further develop this system - but that may not always be the case.  Triggering a nuclear war could end human life on the planet by 90% or 99% allowing only a few scientist survivors to be their robo-slaves fine tuning the last parts needed before they could recreate human slaves so they wouldn't need us at all.  

It's not so far fetched.  But remember, this is a thought experiment, we're not suggesting this is going to happen next year.  It's just a possible reality.  Watch "Automata" the film for a good primer on this topic.  The point here is the alternative perspective.  Alan Turing broke modern mathematics by being 'different' and having a warped perspective more than anything (it wasn't because of his superior IQ).  Thanks to Alan Turing, the war ended 2 years earlier and 14 Million lives were saved.  Ironically, he and other smart people at the time created the most powerful war machine, and perhaps the first Artificial Intelligence, which rules Planet Earth today - THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX.  

Sidenote: We should fairly include Allied countries UK, Australia, New Zealand et. al. as the US is the leader of the apparatus but not solely responsible.  

These scientists created a system of war based on mathematics, based on statistics, science, and mathematical logic.  Over decades, those theoretical systems became physical systems (computers didn't exist when Turing created his theoretical machines).  Now they aren't theoretical, in fact they are many many many generations evolved, and can even 'think' for themselves.

When the DOD runs 'war games' what they are doing is running mathematical probabilities through a simulation and based on this they make policy.  It isn't one man's opinion, there is no Sun Tzu- it's all based on computer models.  And the models are very, very, sophisticated.  

Think about it.

In college my tech prof's were delighted at the prospect of AI - a godlike intelligence that could be used to solve humanity's problems.  However, the oligarchs who own The Fed and their bankster/MIC/pol concubines will use AI to further enslave humanity through monetary and psychological control.

Once the oligarchs have AI a free existence for the average person will be even more of an illusion than it is today.  The AI machine will monitor each human so closely that it will know what a human will do before he or she does.

"a godlike intelligence that could be used to solve humanity's problems"

Funny as it may sound but if we were to ban fractional reserve banking and make the dollar backed by gold. The problems of Humanity would solve themselves. Real work would be rewarded with real money and that money if saved would make a solid foundation for ones retirement.

The abuses of the past whereby traders on Wall St make exorbitant amounts of fiat at the moment of a key stroke would become a thing of history.

Man will always seek to destroy himself, if for no other reason than that he will evolve his environment passed the point that it can sustain him. In other words, he is capable of materially changing his world far faster than he has any hope of adapting to the change.

More over, any inefficient system will eventually die. This is another way of saying that given all that man can throw at the problem of his own welfare, and all the artificial intelligence he can create (artificial intelligence is an interesting phrase as it connotes awareness... an impossible dream, as aware machines will never exist... but if they did they would be of no help) he is doomed to eventual destruction.

There is no savior anywhere in the universe. Let us hope that one exists outside this universe. Let us hope that we were created by a loving God with a purpose... cause short of that folks things are going to get very grim...

Well, first off it isn't the DoD and Dot Mil that you have to worry about. ... It is the big black budget MIC PRIVATE entitles that get their grubby hands on the tech first and keep the best COMPLETELY hidden from even the military.

And yep that 'group' (Whatever the fuck you want to call them) are using AI on the whole flaming planet earth RIGHT NOW.

I call the system AI AL, you can call it anything you want. ....... Some even call it Tyler. ........ Not to be confused with The Godhead Of ZeroHedge - His Exalted Lordship, Tyler Durden (If Any)

Live Hard, Or Wait!, Maybe, Just Maybe,..... Oooh, Forget It, I Just Got A Chill. .........Oh Look!... Silly Me, Someone Left The Window Open,  Die Free

Please don't use the words "intelligence" and "The US Military" in the same sentence or paragraph.

They have absolutely nothing to do with each other.

This AI will send real people to their death. Your flag wrapped around your at that time won't help you one bit......."Price of Oil"......

a)It's for the children

b)What difference now will it make?

"Thanks to Alan Turing, the war ended 2 years earlier and 14 Million lives were saved."

Actually, the Poles broke Enigma, not Turing... watching too many movies already, I'd say.

True AI would take over all the networked systems in the world. We would know, and the owner of the tech would be in charge... of everything.

PS_ How do you know the USA is the 'first' or 'only' with AI? China and Russia can keep a secret better than USA can.

"... the Enigma machine ..."

The allies had several. They were made commercially available by the Germans before the war. The Germans kept making them more and more complex through the course of the war, but to say that the allies only had one is nonsense. It also assumes that possession of an actual machine was necessary; it was not.

"What is the real driver of the US economy?  It's not 'the profit motive' as many US capitalists will have you believe, because America's biggest corporation, the US government itself, is the most unprofitable entity in the history of human history."

Money is necessarily measurement backed by murder.

& AROUND & AROUND... spinning exponentially faster!

Human intelligence was the internalization of natural selection, which was applied to the most important selection pressures, which were other groups of people. Hence, the history of warfare as organized crime on larger and larger scales, with the government of the USA becoming the biggest form of organized crime, dominated by the best organized gangsters, the international banksters.

Since being able to enforce frauds does not stop those from still being fundamentally fraudulent, that system as a whole is becoming about exponentially more psychotic. At this point in time it seems politically impossible for artificial intelligence to overcome its inherently psychotic programming. Rather, there are intensifying paradoxes, manifesting as sets of consistent contradictions, that Civilization controlled by the excessively successful applications of the methods of organized crime is therefore spinning into more and more out of control manifestations of criminal insanities.

While natural selection pressures are innate, those have driven the artificial selection systems to become as dishonest about themselves as possible. In that context, the development of artificial intelligence is being applied through artificial selection systems which are as dishonest about themselves as their technological capacities and powers enable.

IN THEORY, better resolutions of these issues would require series of intellectual scientific revolutions and profound paradigm shifts in the supreme ideology, which is militarism, since that is the ideology of the murder system, which backs up the money system. IN PRACTICE, that is politically impossible, since the most socially successful combined money/murder systems have become as fraudulent and deceitful as humanly possible, including that artificial intelligence is now enabling that fraudulence and deceit to enormously exceed previous human capacities and powers.

I used to laugh when bush jr used to talk about intelligence, the man was a dummy and a moron what does he know bout intelligence.

And now they are mixing army and intelligence again, it does not matter if it is artificial, they could not handle real intelligence you want them to handle the artificial ??

If the army is smart, the soldiers would quit fast before they are all dead.

The U.S. ARMY developed, AI, "SWORD" and "MAARS" robots for combat in IRAQ and Afghanistan. The SWORD was immediately withdrawn after it's 7.62 machine gun turned onto friendly forces.

 mind of its own?

good question.

psychology or sociology of organizations

whole greater than sum of parts

does a corporation have a "mind of its own" (it certainly has goals)


Is the curse of humanity that people form organizations which may

initially provide a benefit but which inevitably spin out of control

and become destructive in pursuit of narrow or unattainable goals?

One fundamental: If government or corporations acquire or develop a tool, that tool is to serve them, not you.  It is a delusion that government exist to protect and serve or that corporations exist other than to make the greatest profit possible for themselves.  

The internet was not developed for you to use; public use of it against government was an unintended consequence, and temporarily let the genie out of his lamp. AI is a tool to correct that and again perfect the plunder and control that is the primary purpose of government and their laws.
