Hacking Human Beings - Drug company launches global hunt for 'superhumans

Putting these companies visions together, Terminator is not that much of a stretch.

Very interesting - have noticed all kinds of google trackers suddenly (routinely use encrypted google) and my ip (shaw) is suddenly over-riding the encryptedgoogle url. ...? Needs watching. This is really important and I subscribed, flagged and starred yesterday without commenting. Still don't have much to say, need more info. Do you have a profile on google owners, key investors?

F&S& *bump*

i liked what you posted back there, (the acquisition list)

this is what i'd like to add to all this..

it's a strange little story.. it's in the definition of the name (the word google) and like all things tinfoil, we have to construct a little forum meth-lab to extract the vital gelfing essence..


Goo·gle [goo-guhl]
Show IPA noun Trademark. 1. brand name of a leading Internet search engine, founded in 1998. verb (used with object), Goo·gled, Goo·gling.
2. ( often lowercase ) to search the Internet for information about (a person, topic, etc.): We googled the new applicant to check her background. verb (used without object), Goo·gled, Goo·gling.
3. ( often lowercase ) to use a search engine such as Google to find information, a website address, etc., on the Internet.

Origin: 1998; after mathematical term googol

ahh, there we go.. (finally)
..and what might this mysterious "googul" thing be?
some mythical sandwich once ordered by steve jobs?
a 20 hitdice monster half undead/half avian that swoops down on your chips?
a genetically engineered mouthguard that tastes like bubblegum?


nope..
(you might like this one..)
..keep that acquisition list in mind

because, here is our "google"

goo·gol [goo-gawl, -gol, -guhl]
Show IPA noun a number that is equal to 1 followed by 100 zeros and expressed as 10 100 .

get it?
(acquisition list?) number equal to 1 followed by (mumbles zero's)...
..they wanna control everything!? (frantic hand gestures) ...skynet!?
/jeers from crowd

..well, if you liked that, you'll like this little end-piece here,

Googul (Origin) 1935–40;
introduced by U.S. mathematician Edward Kasner (1878–1955), whose nine-year-old nephew allegedly invented it

(the same gag works for facebook too)

but isn't that just wonderful?
..those twisted muppets have a sense of humor too?

I am looking today, and will post an update. Not good at all as far as I can see,
this is hooked in the the NSA.

Thanks for dropping by Sofi!

It's possible they're using this for good. I highly doubt it, in fact, I'm fairly certain that buying up so many tech companies can only lead to some sort of evil disastrous corporate scheme, but.. Maybe they're using their powers for good.

I found some more interesting news, so posting it here.


After robotics software and now hardware, the third piece of Google's puzzle seems to be the artificial-intelligence work of Ray Kurzweil, a recent company hire. Kurzweil is known for talking up the notion of a technological singularity, a point in human history during which artificial-intelligence systems will suddenly surpass human abilities. According to Kurzweil, the singularity will take place around 2045.
mashable.com...

Here is an interesting PDF that delves into the work of DeepMind

arxiv.org/pdf/1109.5951‎

Sergey Brin funding research and creation of cultured meat.

- Google demonstrates quantum computing for fast image search - www.popsci.com...

- Lockheed Martin buys a D-Wave One for undisclosed purposes - www.kurzweilai.net...

Here is a link that is well worth saving.
Literally, everything you need to know about the relationship between Google
and the NSA.

Electronic Information Privacy Center

EPIC v. NSA: Google / NSA Relationship


epic.org...

Now as to the robot end, Boston Dynamics will finish out its existing contracts with
DARPA, yet one must ask who will continue to develop all of the Military Robot tech?

Another big question is what is Google going to do with Cheetah bot?



The question, then, is what will the firm do with all its newly acquired robotics expertise? Andy Rubin, creator of Google’s Android operating system, is the man behind the new robotics division. And he’s mostly mum on specifics.

The other seven companies acquired include makers of humanoid robots, a specialist in robotic arms, a robotics software firm, and a computer vision company. It’s thought immediate applications will be industrial—the further automation of manufacturing processes and manual labor in warehouses.

More on Google and its robot hoarding:

www.washingtonpost.com...

There is not much information available on the Google / NSA
quantum computer end of this: they have that wrapped up tight.
Yet, we know by all of the leaks from Snowden that
this has been going on a good long time, with NO end in sight.

Wasn't Sergei's wife also involved in a start-up to to evaluate (or collect, ahem) folk's DNA? Google looks more and more like the compromised "cut-out" the intell apparatus is notorious for (Air America being an example, but there's so many more.) Many of them have been quite profitable, too. Not this profitable, though. They are really hitting their stride in making us pay for our own subjugation.

I recall that scuttle,

www.rawstory.com...

Now need to investigate that also. What is to stop Google from this venture also?

Gut, you really have a way with words....

Indeed...and with NSA as their siamese twin, its double the trouble.

When this in full is unleashed, I agree with those who think
there will be no controlling it once it reaches a certain point.

I keep wondering to what end the trans humanist aspect might
serve them - well its a thought that spirits like to take up house.
I shudder to think how they might take to "cultured meat"

I don't think a genetic abnormality should have much to do with, since I am sure they could place a chip in your brain without it. However maybe said abnormality make it work faster, better, or maybe it grants better user control...? Either way it's just flat out crazy to consider turning your brain into a computer that's hooked up to the internet and has facial recognition software among other things.

Did you watch that episode though? I think it's a pretty awesome show. I'm into gov't/military dramas like that. There is a little comedy in there too.

Totally agreed, even with nanoscale tech it is insane, imo.

Not yet, but I am looking forward to it!


About the DNA trait thing, really want to find more info on that end too.

Sofi,

Yes to the point, and great links. We are fortunate to have a great
researcher as you on ATS! ETA is it a coincidence that fibromyalgia
became widespread after the introduction of GMO? I need to go to your thread
and continue this, thanks again for the link!

Have you read that Monsanto just purchased a company that
has a patent on RNA gene expressions? They keep messing with
stuff and we will one day be so screwed; to the point of no return.

Hey, thanks for the kind words and the link!
3D printed food - the pizza does not look too bad,
those meal cubes could be darn scary though.

Meal worms....? blech!

Hey though, if I had a chip in my brain, I could program it to tell
me that I like meal worms...! ? !

Hmmmm.....food for thought.

"Robot, go help Jonny by sticking this pointy stick through his heart. He needs you're help right away. Yes master, right away!" These robot rules are things I have no interest in whatsoever.

Strong AI systems should be constantly monitored and we shouldn't do business with someone if we know they have an AI agent without at least two or three separate emergency shut-down measures. Thats a much more realistic solution. The robot rules circus is never going to go anywhere because its substantially useless.

According to my moral values, today's taxation hurts me because it takes my money without permission. Even if it that were not true, I also think its harmful to give money to people with nuclear weapons because you risk getting killed your self. We're already in a state of existence where governments might as well be evil robots that have taken over the world. So, see if you can get the robot with those rules to work for the IRS. If it does, then it is violating the first rule of robots and the whole thing should be scrapped. If we manage to shed off the biological human machine tyranny we have now, then there could be hope of shedding any future mechanical robot machine tyranny.

I like your way of thinking! Yes, yes the taxes, the overburden of a cumbersome
and intrustive gubbment. What do do....and then we have the patriot act,
and all of those agengices ending in A..

And what to make of Google with Ray Kurzweil. To be very honest,
I have followed along with his thoughts, and news about him and never
expected it to amount to a hill of beans.

Then, what in tarnation do we see? Google has hired him!
Egads.
