Advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, autonomous and intelligent systems, encryption, tracking, and facial recognition are increasingly at the center of political and social debates. Furthermore, digital surveillance techniques (facial and voice recognition, for example) are rapidly being created and deployed with little external oversight, creating significant societal risks. Around the globe, lawmakers and regulators are rushing to fill this perceived gap, and even the Vatican has established a code of ethics for A.I. systems. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with founder of aiethics.world and author of Inventing World 3.0, Matthew James Bailey about CHILDREN OF A LESSER INTELLIGENCE.
The President of the United States is 80 years old. The Senate majority leader is 72 years old.
The Minority Leader of the United States Senate is 81 and freezes in place when he is asked questions.
The average age of a US senator at the start of 2021 was 64.3 – the oldest in American history. While the American public doesn’t agree on much, they do agree on this: Our politicians are simply too old.
More recently, Biden tackled the question directly in an interview with the New York Times. He argued that he was physically fit, offering as evidence a forthcoming doctor’s report and a claim that he could do forty-four push-ups.
Hell, we are so brainwashed that he could produce a death certificate and Kamala Harris would jump and claim that even in death he is a great leader — and that this is what leadership looks like.
That is right it is dead — and so we will be too if we don’t pay attention to the mad science that is underway, that is poisoning us, abusing the creation model, depopulating the planet and not realizing the possible dangers of out-of-control artificial intelligence.
In fact it is embarrassing that we are arguing over Trump Or Biden for President — it is as if we are not serious about the future — because the future is going to be brutal with a leader that has no clue about genetics, or technology– and even advanced A.I.
I have fistedly stated that the arguments over which aged politician should be voted into power is counterintuitive to the brave new world we face.
We live in the 21st century and we have leaders that top out at 100 years old — that is if you include Henry Kissinger. Then the aged cabal rots down to the other elderly leaders who probably do not know the true dangers of mad science.
From genetics to Eugenics, to targeting biological weapons, we face a brave new world with a frail group of leaders that still push the same talking points that have been around since the cold war.
In fact they have had no alternative but to resurrect it and put us towards the edge of extinction with another Cold War — except this time we have weapons that can be autonomous because of advances in Artificial intelligence.
Geoffrey Hinton resigned from Google to warn that AI could soon surpass humans in intelligence and learn how to destroy humanity on its own.
I guess he held a guilty conscience as he was the head of Google when they were working on Project Maven a military image recognition project that led to the resignation of about a dozen employees and a petition signed by thousands more.
Project Maven, uses machine learning technology to quickly analyze images captured on the battlefield, such as from aerial drones. The Maven technology has reportedly been used in the Middle East war theater.
Google, for its part, has said its role in the project involved its open-source TensorFlow AI framework and that it was used for “non-offensive uses only,– but many felt that this went against Google’s “Don’t Be Evil.”
By the way, it is no longer their code of conduct.
Google changed its name to Alphabet and changed its Motto “Do the right thing.”
But apparently, that means that you can “Do as thou Wilt” no matter the moral repercussions.
Google, Facebook and other transnational corporations are now so big that ethics plays second fiddle to profit and legislators feel somehow emasculated to act in the public interest. Revolving doors obviously play a role in the cesspool of modern-day politics. These transnationals are breaking all the rules where anarchy by the rich and powerful is endemic to civil society.
It is endemic to abuses of technology –and abuses of AI, for surveillance and the war effort.
There is an overall trajectory we should all be concerned with. While understanding technology can be a good thing, in the hands of these transnationals literally anything could happen.
Who would have thought Facebook would allow micro-targeting to usurp democracy? Who would have imagined the internet being used to oppress and create alleged enemies of the state?
Allowing these companies access to private health information, along with social media and search data will eventually be used in a commercial social scoring system.
For instance, a car insurer might increase your premium if social media data suggests you like socializing too much or that you’ve been searching for a health issue or seeing a doctor about a health concern.
One thing is for sure. These technical titans need to be put on a leash and proper anti-competition laws established to break them up and create a more thriving competitor market than exists today.
Nothing can stand in the way of the constant flow of messaging, profit and growth, which are, after all, the primary justifications for all this deceptive disorder.
Information being pushed by algorithms is in a deer-in-the-headlights trance.
That it is after all pushing nothing but sugar water, and echo chamber bull manure, it is left with little choice but to double down and turn the levels up even higher… thus ramming even more manure at us.
This is why we are hearing all sorts of outrageous militant stands on emotional opinions rather than facts.
Take for example QAnon — it was a Self Organizing Collective Intelligence.
The basic dynamics of a SOCI is that some sort of attractor is able to grab the attention and energy of some group of people. It is generally one that is very vague and abstract; some idea or notion that only makes sense to a relatively small group of people.
When those people apply their attention and energy to the SOCI, it makes it more real, easier for more people to grasp onto and to find interesting and valuable. It then becomes more attractive to more people and their attention and energy.
This created what is called a generative loop.
As the SOCI becomes more real and attracts more people it begins to encounter challenges. If the SOCI has enough capacity within its collective intelligence to resolve the challenge, it “levels up” and expands its ability to attract more attention and energy from more people.
I know this is a hard sell for true believers — but absolutely none of the QAnon canon has ever been proven.
All of the “inside information” came at us so fast and so hard as to leave us bent and broke under the weight of it all, as we stumbled around like headless chickens desperately trying to win the approval of our friends by looking like we are at least doing the only “acceptable” thing and believing any and all stories that confirm and stir the hate towards our political enemies.
It did its job in undermining alternative thoughts and actions. It created the need for so-called fact-checking and other adversarial operations — to combat unwarranted or information that damaged the reputation of the corrupt political system.
We have arrived at his frenzied point of screwball hyper-polarization–could it be the product of evil or chaotic Artificial Intelligence?
It seems to have locked people into dangerous thinking that leads to following a corrupt agenda.
To get us to that point though, they must keep us constantly preoccupied; agitated, offended, attacking each other and defending ourselves against all threats, both real and imagined. The more they can get us ensnared in mind-numbing opinions and outrages, the less energy and attention will be left to notice the deeper more manipulative agendas of techno-fascism.
The “A.I. control grids” are all active and expanding. The technocratic agendas are now fully ready for full spectrum control. We have been gradually “shepherded” by propaganda and psychological torture techniques, just as we have also been physically compromised by toxins in the geo-engineered air and water, by disruptive electromagnetic frequency radiation, by weaponized technologies that include the release of nano-particulates inside our bodies.
This is speculated to be the trap — the remote alteration of our very DNA under the “persistent” control of A.I., which will guide the process of transmuting us into commodities, into plunderable assets, into digitally-regulated and genetically modified “livestock.”
Same as it ever was, you might say, but as we approach the much-touted singularity with its accompanying convergence of man and machine.
Advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, autonomous and intelligent systems, encryption, tracking, and facial recognition are increasingly at the center of political and social debates.
The public, scholars, civil society, governments, and policymakers are increasingly aware and concerned about data processing technologies and algorithms that businesses are developing in a relatively lightly and inconsistently regulated environment.
Some digital surveillance techniques (facial and voice recognition, for example) are rapidly being created and deployed with little external oversight, creating significant societal risks. Around the globe, lawmakers and regulators are rushing to fill this perceived gap.
If industry leaders do not quickly adopt an actionable and reliable legal and ethical framework with demonstrable effectiveness, they will quickly find themselves trapped in a quagmire of inconsistent and even contradictory laws and regulations.
Many companies have already identified their ethical principles and guiding values and have attempted to elaborate codes of ethics. However, they often fall short when trying to operationalize those principles and values at the enterprise level.
It can sometimes be difficult to operationalize vague ethical principles, so more specification is often necessary. Respecting dignity and rights, promoting well-being, investing in humanity, promoting justice, access, diversity, equity, and inclusion, recognizing that Earth is for every living thing , maintaining accountability, and promoting transparency, together all serve the common good.
Believe it or not, while our political environment is dragging their feet with regard to A.I. ethics — The Vatican seems to have established a code of ethics for A.I. systems.
known more for religion than tech, The Vatican recently made a significant foray into Artificial Intelligence with an in-depth ethics book.
The ethics book, titled “Ethics in the Age of Disruptive Technologies: An Operational Roadmap”, the result of a unique alliance between the Institute for Technology, Ethics, and Culture initiated by Pope Francis and Santa Clara University’s Markkula Center, tackles A.I. ethics.
The manual goes further than merely providing general advice. It’s a practical guide to confronting AI-related ethical puzzles. The book strongly advocates for integrating ethical standards into technology and businesses from their inception. This proactive approach aims to prevent ethical mishaps before they occur instead of providing after-the-fact fixes.
The question is who will be the master of the machine and can the Vatican be the pathfinder to ethics in the A.I. realm, when they may see its potential of control and the ability to define of what is valuable and what is not?
When we ask ourselves what we might be grateful for, we will no longer need to struggle for an answer. We will know exactly what is good, true and beautiful and we will commit ourselves to those lofty ideals each and every day.
We will be satisfied with owning nothing, and being happy, taking our health supplements and relaxing as all of our problems are magically tranquilized by our machines.
The mind control apparatus is programming us for not only The Great Reset and the Fourth Industrial Revolution but also the overlord’s New World Order and Brave New World agendas. The oligarchs have grown impatient waiting for older folks to die off naturally or to be killed off by a depopulation agenda.
Their toxic and lethal DNA-altering injections are contributing to its mass euthanasia, fear/hysteria, and social reengineering designed to kill us off.
Most who survive will be driven madder by the campaigns for induced psychosis, social hallucination, and menticide the ruling class has been working on since the Nazis had to the power to use mind control with drugs and torture methods.
Those who survive the great culling have much to look forward to techno-zombification, techno fascism, and socially reengineered peonage under a neo-feudal technocracy that will make Orwell and Huxley’s dystopian worlds seem like paradise.
But of course, this is really not all that important of an issue for the aging political body that is fast becoming irrelevant.
