I've often had ideas of possible military AI applications.
Combining an advanced AI and ECHELON data, I think it could predict very accurately world events, stock markets. It would also be possible to enter a
desirable outcome, and the AI would calculate the steps/events needed to produce the outcome. It could be used to produce speeches for world leaders
to deliver what the people wanted to hear etc.
Imagine feeding an AI billions of phone calls and e-mails from around the planet in real time, and being able to predict what would happen next. Also
the open-data movement provides much data which could also be fed to the AI(s).
Actually, the ECHELON bases already use AI, but it is a neural network AI specifically tuned for speech analysis (used to identify keywords in
telephone call monitoring), it is also apparently used in US Navy submarines for voice recognition commands. It is apparently far superior to most
existing voice recognition algorithms because it takes into consideration stress and time signatures of speech such as tiny pauses between letters.
Imagine the military/political and strategic (world dominating) implications this would have.
I had this idea a long time ago after becoming interested in ECHELON and doing a bit of research on its bases (such as Menwith Hill, UK). I originally
wanted to write a novel about it - but I'm sure by the time I'd finished, they would have already far surpassed this idea.
