The Military is Using Human Brain Waves to Teach Robots How to Shoot

OK, everything a human can do a machine can do better, except knowing what to shoot and when to shoot.


Modern sensors can see farther than humans. Electronic circuits can shoot faster than nerves and muscles can pull a trigger. Humans still outperform armed robots in knowing what to shoot at — but new research funded in part by the Army may soon narrow that gap.
www.govexec.com...

So lets feed brain waves into a neural network to teach the new robotic war machines who and when to shoot, of course.


Researchers from DCS Corp and the Army Research Lab fed datasets of human brain waves into a neural network — a type of artificial intelligence — which learned to recognize when a human is making a targeting decision. They presented their paper on it at the annual Intelligent User Interface conference in Cyprus in March.


Deep learning. Sounds ominous. The challenge is how the military is going to deal with huge data sets. Google solved it with the Go game problem and found that a computer could beat a human at their stupid game at Google’s DeepMind lab.
An aside-Google’s DeepMind lab sounds like where the start of the end is going to come from.


“We often talk about deep learning. The challenge there for the military is that that involves huge datasets and a well-defined problem,” Thomas Russell, the chief scientist for the Army, said at a recent National Defense Industrial Association event. “Like Google just solved the Go game problem.”

I'd embed it but can't find the scene from the film Navy Seals, where they bust into the 'funhouse' and hose the bad guys but leave the journalist and Seal unharmed?

Clear, Clear, Clear!

giggly

They really practice that stuff to perfection. When a drone does that it just drops a hellfire onto the whole building killing everyone, 'only way to be sure'.

Good lick teaching robots to storm a building and only kill bad guys.

It's no secret why the military is big in to robots.

They are the perfect killing machine.

No sleep.

No anger.

No remorse.

No second guessing.

No quams about doing XYZ.

Until the slaves start killing the master.

Dangerous waters man is playing with.

I'd rather a robot make me a sammich, and bring me a beer.

And then the politics that comes along with robots.

'living' wage, vacation time, the right to vote.

Robot gender, then robot transgenderism.

A whole new era in civil rights.

Mans smart ?

He'd put an inxnay on the botray.

Toute d'suite.

I was wondering how they are going to "teach" a auto driving car to stay on the road when a semi drives by it on the highway and sprays it with rain/mud/ice/snow. Are the sensors going to compensate like a human?

If these machines are going to replace the people, it will be interesting to see them work riot control, "human shield" issues and hostages. Let alone a full on war.

By then robots will be protesting for us.

With large data sets (big data), the hardware companies have already gone beyond CPU's, GPU's, software API's.

www.nvidia.com...

They already have servers that support specially formatted file systems that allow the parallelized loading and saving of Terabyte data files - a single read/write command sends the thousands of data blocks to/and from each computing node simultanously. Then there are the programming languages R, Python, Java, Hadoop, Scala and Go.

But they need to be oiled and recharged.

Dont forget that or youll brick youre robot.

Robots will do that do.

Funny how mans pursuit of knowledge keeps making himself irrelevant.

Exactly! I knew this guy - he lived across the street from me.

He became totally irrelevant and now one spends much time indeed wondering whatever became of him.

The moment the US military can take out the population with killer robots they will pull the trigger. The US military was not able to protect us on 9/11. I doubt they are a force for good.

So glad I am in my 40's right now. I have lived a good part of my life seeing this sort of thing on TV as fantasy and not having to worry about it being an actual thing. Like below.



I do not know what malevolent force is driving this AI revolution, but as humans we have flourished without it for how many thousand years now?

I can see where the war bots are facing off against the patriots in a "civil" war. It would not be fun..

We have no choice, our adversaries are developing these as well

They already have the means to do that - cruise missiles have quite a lot of intelligence built in. They can use GPS for world location, as well as use radar to determine the profile of the ground they have travelled across and use that to locate their position. They also build up a threat map of areas based on the loss of communication with other cruise missiles. Plus they can carry nuclear warheads.

Probably, it would also be possible to add navigation-by-stars like the SR-71. Even a smartphone CCD can take a photograph of the brightest stars in the night sky.

About time too.

No sense expending US soldiers lives fighting religious radicals not fighting for a legally recognized state.

Robots versus human ISIS robots.

You watch to much Scifi

Machines don't wasn't anything, they don't know they know to want, they do only what they are told.

Imagine programming a predator drone with the option to disobey...

We have these google 'self' driving cars here. The first few weeks they were in operation one in fact did turn into a muni bus, because the software 'saw' the side of the bus filling its field of view and that made it invisible, if that makes sense.

Its impossible to program for every conceivable occurrence, but they will keep ironing out the mistakes as they arise. When I see these vehicles now, people are at the wheel.

Swarms of flying micro drones will do that. Seen the video of US airforce testing deployment?
Imangine these being programmed with facial recognition software, then flying to demostrations and attaching, tazing and or gassing 'suspects' form 'lists'.

Imagine further in war they could hunt down combatants, attack kamikaze style, detonating small charges to kill the enemy soldiers, wherever they were hiding? Even indoors or in tanks. They simply wait out side, go into hibernation mode until the enemy opens the hatch or a window.

And this is what is being released to the public, what is going on in the desert or space that is not for our public eyes.
