the important point:
Is when do "they" decide they don't need us any more

Promises, promises!

If for instance, the conditions bestowed upon Google when making this purchase were 'protection of humans at all cost' as has been mentioned, what would happen if the devices were stolen and reverse engineered or copied by a competitor or black project.

The conditions would mean nothing to an enemy, how would they protect thier word? Is it not impossible to do? Simply just the initial construction of any type of AI 'robot being' would be risking this scenario.

I try not to think of consequences to much on a personal level, because you wouldn't step outside of your house or get in your car through fear of personal or negligible disaster, but there comes a point where - when you want to start playing God, you will have to face consequences!

The rate that Google is growing, these conditions will mean nothing in twenty years time when we abide in a whole different type and structure of technological world.

Yes, indeed. And some might argue to have Sentient robots
is advancing mankind, there could be some benefit however unless
there is an absolute control switch it could get out of hand.

I have been saying for years that Google was part of Skynet! also Facebook but i don't know if that will happen since Google may be a better choice for human studies for the cyber mind.

Good points you bring to the table,
espionage seems alive and well indeed.

Just look at the current situation with the U.S.,
Russia and Belarus.

There too exists the train of thought that more software
leads to more hacking.

It will be interesting to see this all play out, as some people
are all for the singularity...we could end up with a mix
of it, and with the natural course of humanity one will
vie for the power spot.

some thoughts if I may:

benefit of human beings?
depends on what your definition of human beings is

AI's, Robots ( and possibly frozen embryos and maybe cyborgs ) can space travel, and/or can shut down to wait for better times on this wreck of a rock, which is like one way time travel...beats the E= MCsquared problem sort of

the biggest killer of the last century at some 262 millions directly is government....like the one(s) that google is in bed with


it only takes one nutbar on the joystick whether it be man or machine

and finally
do drones ever get qualms of concience?
ever bring a gun to drone fight?

Yes, I think so. I sent you a u2u.

Things are moving right along, I hear the Robots even
have their own internet - RoboEarth.
www.bbc.co.uk...

Will check out the Who news - thanks.

Nice to see ya! check your messages.





Sorry my friend, but I can't read any U2 messages just yet - I guess I have to make a couple of more posts before that - anyway, take care bts and hopefully I'll talk with some more later on?

I will admit I tossed the idea out there for the sake of discussion,
my opinion is one that the advancement of AI is a very slippery slope
I have no intentions of getting on the roof; and think this is headed
into dystopian scenarios not unlike 1984, and A Brave New World,
along with Skynet.

Though, there seems no stopping it now. To be honest, was I any more
comfortable with DARPA in charge of the robots: NO.

While the folks who work there may qualify as human, like the folks
at Google we have; as you have well pointed out another entity,
which is the government and history shows us the way there too.

Something I just heard from a caller on an internet radio show ( "The Power Hour " on GCN ):
The patent office returned patent applications on little technicalities like punctuation, while in the meantime google scooped the patent...

hmmm
also
all research and communications are monitored by systems which can beat any honest advances and plans

and
all our communications are collectively now actively and passively the subconscious of a great world wide net...
our ghosts in the machine if not now, then soon, will do this job...

I apologize for the randomness of my posts on this thread...I guess I'm leading up to the conclusion that after a singular AI reaches the self replication stage in its development...they all will...

heh heh
been nice to know ya

Great post, I think we should all be doing this musing.

I was musing too; what should happen if - as it has been suggested
that a third party should have all of the NSA data, rather than the NSA?

That would mean a huge data base somewhere with emails-phone
convos etc in the hands of some tech company such as Palantair.
Remember them?

This would make what is happening in Russia look like childs play.

Its crazy, the last ten years has literally changed humanity beyond anything
that has ever taken place before.

Is this to our benefit?

maybe we could make it to our benefit if we could convince the supreme AI its in its best interests to keep us around...
but what the set labelled "Us" might contain I'm not quite certain...

PS
what happens when the AI starts to recreate us?...

When ( we are past the if ) AI is set in motion - seems we must convince it
to keep us around, and wouldn't we also need to convince it that we
are the only priority, they must be willing to render themselves
to nuts and bolts if commanded.

I am trying to remember the movie, it had some astronauts stranded on
a planet, and they had this little drone that was supposed to be their
guidance, computer etc. Then they needed to take it apart and use
its energy source to power up another craft, so they could fly back
to the main ship....and the drone starting killing them one by one.

Of course, that was not what was programmed into the drone bot
but....guess what. Dun dun dun.



Ok, found it.

a landmine is a very simple robot...

going all the way back to Sumeria and the epic of Gligamesh, the offspring of the gods did not receive immortality.
That was their main quest...I guess since as the story goes, they are stranded here on earth as incorporate beings sfter deceacing physically before or during the Flood ( about 10500 BC.)

these beings are supposed to be directing the secret societies that have controlled our collective destiny via con-troll-ing our institutions and with their debt based enslavement banking practices.

So this may be an attempt to ultimately create "Lucifer" , and also to create a form of immortality

because many generations of man haven't/won't live to see the big day after advancing the ball down field in their time, suspect a bigger beneficiary then man somewhere downstream

Interesting thoughts to ponder, thanks Danbones.

A good read here on some ancient history of banking and the creation of international banks.

thanks BTS nice linky

I am going to go out on a limb a little here, and say this:
Its my observation that the incorporate beings spoken of in context of the past and the those left over "spirits" from the days of enoch, that the secret societies and
that govern us sub rosa...can interact directly on our space by influencing the local laws of probability...

which means they may be able to use an AI /high brow computing to corporate

That seems a pretty solid limb Dan.
Spirits transcend time, I also think that some are more capable and powerful
that others.

imo, I think we were there already at least once before
going by the accounts of ancient civilizations.

At the bottom of this page are some interesting comments about that.

After hearing AJ, and Catherine Albrect speak of this same scamario, here is dr Paul Craig Roberts,ex Reganometric economic heavey weight...

Several years ago Ralph Gomery warned me that the damage done to US labor by jobs offshoring was about to be superseded by robotics. Gomery told me that the ownership of the technology patents is highly concentrated and that breakthroughs have made robots increasingly human in their capabilities. Consequently, the prospect for employment of humans is dismal.

Gomory’s words reverberated with me when I read RT’s February 15, 2014, report that computer and robotic experts at Harvard have constructed mobile machines programmed with the logic of termites to be self-organizing and able to complete complex tasks without central direction or oversight. rt.com...

RT doesn’t understand the implications. Instead of raising a red flag, RT gushes: “The possibilities are vast. The machines can be made to build any three-dimensional structure on their own and with minimal instruction. But what is truly staggering is their ability to adapt to their work environment and to each other; to calculate losses, reorganize efforts and make adjustments. It is already clear that the development will do wonders for humanity in space, hard-to-reach places and other difficult situations.”

The way the world is organized under a few powerful and immensely greedy private interests, the technology will do nothing for humanity. The technology means that humans will no longer be needed in the work force and that emotionless robotic armies will take the place of human armies and have no compunction about destroying the humans on whom they are unleashed. The picture that emerges is more threatening than Alex Jones’ predictions. Faced with little demand for human labor, little wonder thinkers predict that the rich intend to annihilate the human race and live in an uncrowded environment served by their robots. If this story has not been written as science fiction, someone should get on the job before it becomes ordinary reality

the rich intend to annihilate the human race and live in an uncrowded environment served by their robots.





And as I was at the ATM which had a scanner, for checks and money,
it even gave me a second and third opportunity....

I was there, did not speak, did my business and walked away.

I think that last sentence in your news quote is quite chilling.
