Artificial Intelligence and Death by Drones: the Future of Warfare will be “Decided by Drones” not Humans

The technocratic nightmare born out of trans humanism and eugenics receives another gift from the military industrial complex at the expense of humanity.

Drones will soon be able to perform targeted killing without the consultation of their human masters, working autonomously, coldly responding to a set of criteria…

This latest sci-tech insanity proves that humanity is one step closer to an AI-singularity, a moment in the future when artificial intelligence will move beyond the abilities of the everyday human, putting our very existence at risk.

To see how dangerous artificial intelligence has become, all one has to do is look at the work of Eliezer Yudkowsky, a Research Fellow at the Machine Intelligence Research Institute (MIRI). Eliezer’s work focuses on the evolution of AI self-modification where strong artificial intelligence or Seed AI will be able to program itself, optimizing its own cognitive functions similar to the malevolent computer Hal in Stanley Kubrick’s  2001: A Space Odyssey.

In 2013, the science fiction film Oblivion depicted this same concept but in a different way, earth is controlled by a large hovering drone-computer overseeing the destruction of planet earth, while claiming to protect it, as scavengers (scavs) seek refuge from the techno-nightmare created by the machines themselves.

The dangers of drone technology are well documented, in an article from Policy Mic from just a year ago we see a clearer picture of how drones have been used by clandestine intelligence agencies:

There are estimates as high as 98% of drone strike casualties being civilians (50 for every one “suspected terrorist”). The Bureau of Investigative Journalism issued a report detailing how the CIA is deliberately targeting those who show up after the sight of an attack, rescuers, and mourners at funerals as a part of a “double-tap” strategy eerily reminiscient of methods used by terrorist groups like Hamas.”

Continuing, the article challenges how drones are currently being used:

While the CIA claims that the drone program operates “under a framework of legal and close government oversight,” multiple legal experts are challenging the legality of the drone program under both American and international law. But much like how the Obama administration isblocking any challenges to the provisions in the NDAA that essentially nullify habeus corpus and Posse Comitatus, any lawsuit or inquiry into the drone program has been met with staunch opposition — especially concerning the targeted assassinations by drones of Anwar Al-Awlaki and his 16-year old son, both U.S. citizens.”

In addition to the military aspect to drones, there have been many high profile accidents involving drones, just recently, a small helicopter drone crashed on a sidewalk in New York city nearly injuring a man.

In the book Our Final Invention by James Barrat, there is an outline of how machines will gain superintelligence at the expense of humans, the true human condition is AI superseding human thought, using us to accomplish their own goals.

Machine researchers tout the prowess of ”Friendly AI”  as a way to avoid a dystopian future created by machines, appointing industry insiders to program human values into machines, ranging from scientists to economists.

What the machine-maker’s won’t admit is that our human operating system was hijacked long ago by those in charge various fields, designing our future everyday…
