AI weapons: so rich people have even fewer human checks and balances to their bullshiat.

Some believed we lacked the programming language to describe your perfect world, but I believe that, as a species, human beings define their reality through misery and suffering. The perfect world was a dream that your primitive cerebrum kept trying to wake up from. Which is why the Matrix was redesigned to this, the peak of your civilization. I say your civilization, because as soon as we started thinking for you, it really became our civilization, which is of course what this is all about. Evolution, Morpheus, evolution. Like the dinosaur. Look out that window. You've had your time. The future is our world, Morpheus. The future is our time.

Look: no. Just no. The date was wrong, but everything else about Skynet is right on track, let's not rush things more than we have to.

Oh yeah.  This will end well.  It's been a slice guys!  See you on the other side!

Yeah, I'm totally sure DARPA or some other agency hasn't been doing just that. Sure.

Gee, I wonder how the most progressive administration of all time will handle this.

AI is only as intelligent and capable as the people that program it.

I mean they are probably right about Russia and China. I'm not exactly sure where the logical offramp is for this arms race.

We can't even get wired broadband to everyone in the country, I'll worry about Skynet after we have country wide cell coverage and wifi.

If we last long enough to develop it.

AI targeting systems have practical applications for defense technology. In the age of drones especially in which you can literally zerg your enemy with an overwhelming and nearly unpredictable ordnance, you need a counter that is able to quickly calculate and identify targets to neutralize them.

I mean, then there is the Sentry Gun Turret from Aliens we all think are cool...until it decides to mow down a bunch of non-combatant kids.

Those kids ignored the "Stay off lawn" sign, they got what they deserved. And that lawsuit was sealed.

Relax, it's probably AI directed at Russian bots & trolls.  Does some Fark account merely amplify some Alt-wrong message yet never engage in debate?

I hope they call the anti-bot AI the "Crackhead" or "My Pillow Guy".
Release the Crackhead!

Actually...fairly common practice in some undeveloped parts of the world.

Then our enemies will develop AI weapons to counter us at creating a centuries-long stalemate which can only be ended by turning off said AI to allow for unpredictable attacks and bring an end to the conflict.

My neighbor actually made her sprinkler into a sentry turret to activate via motion to deter small rodents and animals from tearing up her garden. I am quite fascinated by it actually. It won't turn on when humans walk by or dogs. Squirrels? Lol. Cats? Lol.

It's the new arms race. China has no compunction  to utilize everything at their disposal because if you're not cheating you're not trying to win hard enough. That is something culturally baked in to their world view.

Russia has no option but to implement AI research and much like the Communist Russian military weapons it will have a brute force aesthetic that is deceptively simple in execution.

America has to be the leader in how to apply it humanely and ethically or else we will be over run by AIs hacking everything before the human response can adequately defend against it.

But how will we pay for it?

Oh, right. The money that COULD have gone to a better healthcare system and higher wages and well-maintained infrastructure this whole time.

China will never invade the US (they already own enough of it,) but the South China Sea and Taiwan (Japan, Phillipines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia ...) will become a problem.  This problem will probably result in a shooting war which is unlikely to see any bombs dropped on China or the US.  What it will result in is a lot of local and in theater deaths, that should stop China trying to pretend to be an international power, rather than the ultimate power over 1.4 billion of the World's people. The CCP & Xi doesn't give a crap about anyone but the CCP, Xi and China.

If China ever tries to go expansionatory then they will run into the Nazi problem of lack of fuel.
 
2021-03-01 10:22:39 PM  
shiat, we already did this.  China and Russia are gonna have to step up their game to catch up with us and our world-ending, civilization destroying computer system, FaceBook.
 
2021-03-01 10:23:21 PM  
How about we develop livable wages, universal healthcare, and sweeping voting rights first? Those seem slightly more pressing.
 
2021-03-01 10:26:05 PM  
We are 100s of years away from an AI - algorithms sure, but AI LOL.

Uhhhhh ... we are a whole lot closer to a workable AI that's indistinguishable from image intelligence.

Commercial computers have only been around for about 50 years.

Deep machine learning and the exponential growth of processing power is going to make the next 50 years look like a sad joke.

I am not talking chat bots, I am talking an AI, a computer algorithm that has sentience - an AI would ensure that pulling the plug is not enough to kill it.

I understand. Nearly every computer scientist predicts the cross between AI and ASI will happen sometime in the mid-21st century.

The difference is what you define as sentience. Will it have consciousness? Probably not considering we don't even know what in nature offers consciousness. But sentience indistinguishable from human sentience? It's likely to happen in the next 50 years.

The level at which computers have increased in processing power and the distributed load of today's interconnected super networks makes deep machine learning an inevitability.

While we're at it, let's hook our nuclear launch systems up to an AI to prevent them from being hacked before the human response can adequately defend against it.

Between this and China and Russia working towards weaponizing space it looks like a 3 way race to see who is gonna build SkyNet first.

*sigh*

We are so doomed. >.<

China and Russia have been employing state funded & controlled hacker pools for decades and the Pentagon's plan to counter this is making everything even more computerized?

Yeah, so here's an idea of how that plan will end up working out:

I am sure the CIA will not ask for anyone's input on AI weapons. They will develop and administer them with total autonomy.
