Rise of the Machines?
« on: April 19, 2024, 01:05:42 PM »
Excerpt from full story on skyNEWS here:
https://news.sky.com/story/first-known-test-dogfight-between-ai-and-human-pilot-carried-out-us-military-says-13118545

The world's first known combat between a human pilot and a fighter jet controlled by AI has been carried out in California, the US military has said.

“In a drill over Edwards Air Force Base, the pair of F-16 fighter jets flew at speeds of up to 1,200mph and got as close as 600 metres during aerial combat, also known as dogfighting.
One was manned, while the other jet was a modified version of the F-16, called the X-62A, or VISTA (variable in-flight simulator test aircraft).
While in flight, the AI algorithm relies on analysing historical data to make decisions for present and future situations, according to the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which carried out the test.” -skyNEWS

Sky News, or Sky Net?

I hope you all do realize that the field called "AI" has always been underwritten by the military. The original AI Labs, at MIT and Stanford, were funded through the Navy's Office of Naval Research.

"The Machines" cannot "Rise" because they are not capable of independent thought or action, which is precisely the reason for those billions in Pentagon funding. Remember, "robot" is from the Czech word for slave (or corvée). An army of Lieutenant Calleys, forever.

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.

Thanks!
And I suffered under the common misconception that Asimov had coined the word.
RE: The Three Laws of Robotics. / "I, Robot."

Wonder how many now know who Lieutenant Calley is?
(Yes, still living today.) ;)

And of course I always trust the US Government (and the military) to have all of our best interests in mind.

just as airplanes, cars, ships, the telegraph, the internet, graphics cards, equipped kitchens and functional food.

that´s true.

most people would think it comes directly from the russian "rabota" (working), but it comes form the slavic "robath" which means "compulsory labor" (in the context of feudalism/church oppression/taxing)

of course the main issue on t his planet remains that many humans are still slaves. transmitting forced labor to the machines would normally be a good idea - i just dont believe in it.
