This system on the surface would be powerful AI, but not AGI itself. There is a major difference. Ai is all around us. In our games, operating and
manipulating the stock market, and so on. The bots in your favorite XBox game aren't going to take over the world any time soon. But today there are
existing systems that learn and evolve. That's what you have to watch out for, and teh overall trends in AGI are beyond the scope of this thread.
Regardless of what they do or don't intend for this system they're spending an initial $100 million dollars on, in terms of AI-AGI, the systems
purpose is to link billions of sensors up across the planet, everywhere, where basically 'everyone' are supposed to have access to this panopticon,
with the intention on managing global resources for a global carbon based economy. The inherent purpose of this system is to the override the privacy
and security (sovereignty) of virtually every nation on earth.
Besides intentions are the real issue, especially if they're putting $100 million tax payer dollars into in its initial phase. You're about to pay
$1 for it, to begin with, amongst all their other programs that run in the billions of dollars (check my sig). Do you agree with that?
