A Terminator arms race

We Just Can't Stop Ourselves

  • We are seeing a 100 yard dash by the moron hack politicians of the world on which extinction event happens first:  a 12 Monkeys virus that kills 80% of the population or a wave of self-aware Terminators. 
  • In my heart I know that my children will never live to see retirement age.

(The Sun)  -  WORLD superpowers are engaged in a feverish “arms race” to develop the first killer robots completely removed from human control, the Sun Online can reveal.
These machines will mark a dramatic escalation in computer AI from the drones and robots currently in use, all of which still require a human to press the “kill button”.
In a series of exclusive interviews, leading experts told The Sun Online machines making life or death decisions will likely be developed within the next 10 years.
Locked in this new race for military supremacy is Britain, the US, China, Russia and Israel – all of which have robot programmes of varying advancement.
Toby Walsh, a professor of artificial intelligence at the University of New South Wales, described the machines as “the next revolution in warfare”.
Building Terminators
Yes, we are that fucking stupid

Unlike current drones or bomb disposal robots, they will be capable of tracking and killing people at their own discretion – a prospect he finds “terrifying”.
He said: “There’s an arms race between the US, China, Russia, the UK and Israel – they’re technologically the most developed countries.”
One such creation was a 132ft-long warship currently being trialled by the US Navy that acts as a fully autonomous submarine hunter.
With no crew to feed, it can cruise across oceans non-stop for up to three months.
Another is a self-driving tank being tested by Vladimir Putin’s military – which has the ability to select and kill anyone it deems an enemy.
“We will fairly soon have autonomous weapons that will target, track and kill without human involvement,” Dr Porter said.
“That is what happens at the minute (but) there’s still a human in the loop and from a military perspective, that’s the weak link. It would be much better – from a military perspective – if that is removed.”
One such robot currently in action is the Samsung SGR-1, an immobile device installed on South Korea’s side of the DMZ.

“arms race” to develop the first killer robots

Using heat and motion detectors to sense movement, it machine guns with deadly accuracy anything who steps within its two mile radius.
Currently, more than 80 countries use some form of robotics in their military, as do some insurgent groups such as Hezbollah.
Peter Singer, a pre-eminent expert in 21st century warfare, said these robotics are becoming more advanced, in both civilian life and war.
He told The Sun Online: "What was once science fiction is the new normal of war. They will come in more shapes, forms and sizes and take on more roles.
"Just as we are starting to see driverless cars, we will also see robotics in war become more autonomous, doing more and more on their own."

The Terminator Series

Our "all knowing" and "wise" politicians are spending mountains of cash to destroy the human race.  In other words, what else is new?
Check out a few of the most recent articles in our Terminator series.

"Justice is coming to all of us, no matter what the fuck we do. You know, mankind's been trying to kill each other off since the beginning of time. Now, we finally have the power to finish the job. Ain't nothing gonna matter once those nukes start flying; we'll all be dust."

It`s a way that our science fiction writers anticipate .
