Artificial intelligence could be “billions of times smarter” than humans and people may need to merge with computers to survive, a futurist told CNBC on Tuesday. Ian Pearson, a futurist at Futurizon, said there will need to be a link between AI and a human brain. Elon Musk said last year that humans must merge with machines to not be irrelevant in the age of AI. Speaking on a panel hosted by CNBC at the World Government Summit in Dubai, Futurizon’s Ian Pearson’s comments mirrored ideas put forward by Tesla CEO Elon Musk. “The fact is that AI can go further than humans, it could be billions of times smarter than humans at this point,” Pearson said. “So we really do need to make sure that we have some means of keeping up.
World Leaders Have Decided: Tom Horn’s MILIEU Is Correct And The Next Step In A.I. Is “AUGMENTING HUMANS”
Think that human augmentation is still decades away? Think again. This week, government leaders met with experts and innovators ahead of the World Government Summit in Dubai. Their goal? To determine the future of artificial intelligence. It was an event that attracted some of the biggest names in AI. Representatives from IEEE, OECD, the U.N., and AAAI. Managers from IBM Watson, Microsoft, Facebook, OpenAI, Nest, Drive.ai, and Amazon AI. Governing officials from Italy, France, Estonia, Canada, Russia, Singapore, Australia, the UAE. The list goes on and on. The whirlwind conversation covered everything from how long it will take to develop a sentient AI to how algorithms invade our privacy. During one of the most intriguing parts of the roundtable, the attendees discussed the most immediate way artificial intelligence should be utilized to benefit humanity. The group’s answer? Augmenting humans.
Former Pentagon Director Says UFOs Warp Space-Time For Uncanny Movement: Do “Aliens” Know How To Time Travel?
Not only in these two incidents but UFOs are often reported to display bizarre aerodynamics, defying the laws of Physics, which human minds are still incapable of apprehending. Former director of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program – Pentagon’s program to identify and investigate UFOs, Luis Elizondo has put forward an explanation about “the physics of how it works. We do believe all these observables we’ve been seeing, sudden and extreme acceleration, hypersonic velocities, low observability, trans medium travel, and last but not least, positive lift, anti-gravity – is really the manifestation of a single technology,” Elizondo said, according to Daily Star. It is the ability to warp space-time, Elizondo explained, and not by a lot, but by a little.
Looking at today’s once-Christian ‘Western’ society, one sees two non-Christian worldviews growing like long-established trees, stretching their branches into everything from education, to the media, to the church. One tree is materialism, the belief that matter is all there is, firmly based on and intertwined with Darwinian evolution. Its canopy bears the dark fruits which stem from morality without a Creator (and thus Lawgiver). Alongside it a second tree is thriving: Eastern spirituality. With its alluring blossoms promising enlightenment, health and wisdom, this tree seems to be drawing much of the world to its shade. These two worldview ‘trees’ may look very different, but are remarkably connected by a common root system.
The mass school shooting that took place in South Florida was a tragic act of violence that shows demonic activity is alive. This shooting was purely from Satan. It was anti-God. It was evil. We have a desperate need for God’s peace. Now is the time to turn to God in prayer. I encourage you to pray through several psalms as you process what happened at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County, Florida. How Should You Pray, in Response to the Shooting?
Israel and Iran made direct military contact on Saturday for the first time, signaling a significant escalation in the multinational entanglement in Syria. This development contains unique elements that several end-of-days experts say presages the Messianic war of Gog and Magog. On Shabbat at around 4 AM, Iran sent a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) into Israeli airspace from a base in Syria. An Israeli Air Force (IAF) Apache helicopter shot down the UAV, and Israel subsequently launched multiple airstrikes inside Syria. Syria launched a barrage of surface-to-air-missiles (SAM) at the Israeli warplanes, damaging one F-16 and forcing the two-man crew to eject with one pilot suffering serious injuries. This was the first time since 2006 that an Israeli warplane had been shot down by an enemy and the first time that an Iranian drone entered Israel.
Kelly Clark’s quick rise in the world of snowboarding has made her a legend in the sport. But as she literally soars to incredible heights in the snow, it took getting grounded in her faith for Clark to really know herself. The most recent issue of Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA, www.fca.org) Magazine profiles Clark, now one of the best snowboarders in the world. And as she gears up for the Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, she’ll take her faith in Christ with her.
What Could Possibly Go Wrong? New “Smart Glasses” Create Hologram By Shooting Laser Directly Into Your Eye (And Note The #639 On The Frame = 666)
From the outside, the Vaunt glasses look just like eyeglasses. When you’re wearing them, you see a stream of information on what looks like a screen — but it’s actually being projected onto your retina. The prototypes I wore in December also felt virtually indistinguishable from regular glasses. They come in several styles, work with prescriptions, and can be worn comfortably all day. Apart from a tiny red glimmer that’s occasionally visible on the right lens, people around you might not even know you’re wearing smart glasses. Like Google Glass did five years ago, Vaunt will launch an “early access program” for developers later this year. But Intel’s goals are different than Google’s. Instead of trying to convince us we could change our lives for a head-worn display, Intel is trying to change the head-worn display to fit our lives.
The dehumanized elite of the world are, as Lewis articulated, treating us as raw material to be manipulated. Our traditions and values must be cast away in this grand experiment. However, in this process, if we are honest with ourselves, we know in our hearts that something is horridly wrong. It is in this climate that we experience an acute cognitive dissonance; battling the nebulous idea that we are going against the grain of something that is quietly, yet profoundly telling us to course-correct while the voices of “progressivism” tell us otherwise.
While cyborg soldiers and fully automated weapons have long been fodder for futuristic sci-fi thrillers, they are now a reality and, if the Pentagon gets its way, will soon become the norm in the U.S. military. As Defense One reported last Thursday, the Army had just concluded a live-fire exercise using a remote-controlled ground combat vehicle complete with a fully automated machine gun. The demonstration marked the first time that the Army has used a ground robot providing fire in tandem with human troops in a military exercise and, as Defense One noted, “it won’t be the last.” Indeed, last week’s exercise represents just the latest step in the Pentagon’s relatively quiet tip-toe into converting the U.S. Armed Forces to a machine-majority force…
