Killer Robots: Will They Soon Replace Human Judgement?

shockleewebpic_killerbotsThe development of robotic technology is happening at a tremendous pace. In other words, the RoboCop concept is not so sci-fi anymore. This past December, DARPA held a robotics challenge in Miami, Florida that showcased 16 teams from around the world, a few of which are now owned by Google. Eight robotics companies have been acquired by Google recently and they are becoming part of a new mysterious new division which seems to be working to develop future tech projects. Now, whether these are for private or military purposes remains to be seen but as you can guess it might be a bit of both. Google also recently purchased a 350,000-square-foot hangar originally built for the U.S. Navy.

The Internet, Technology, Politics & The Future

There is a lot to learn from the events that have been unfolding in England and it will be particularly interesting to see what roles the internet, technology, politics and community will play in this historic event.

Throughout the last few days we have seen a chaotic flood of real-time citizen journalism, reports extending from the hyper-local to the world community at large, all tuned in and sharing information. Social media and mobile technologies have played a big role and we’ve seen examples of these platforms being heavily used to coordinate the flow of information. Whether its been recording and uploading mobile photo, video and audio footage, groups dedicated to organizing clean up efforts, open-data community mapping of incidents, crowd sourced justice groups pointing out self-professed looters and individuals caught on surveillance cameras [CCTV] or identifying people via images using the same facial recognition technology that up until recently was mostly only looked as a social tagging tool.

Weather Warfare: Are We Weaponizing Weather?

It has been proven that ELF [extremely low frequency] or subfrequency radio waves can be manipulated to vibrate the earth’s ionosphere. Translation: these low frequency signals can be broadcast into the atmosphere to trigger changes in weather patterns.

In the U.S., HAARP [The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program] has set up shop in Alaska.
At one of the facilities, 180, 72-foot tall antennas are aiming 3.6 million watts of intense energy into the ionosphere. There are at least 5 research stations like this set up around the globe including two in Alaska, one in Puerto Rico, one in Norway and one in Russia. These transmitters could potentially alter the weather anywhere in the world.
