Season 1 / Episode 10 We rely on machines for virtually every aspect of modern life. Have we reached the point where we need them more than they need us? There may be a time where we are no longer at the top of the evolutionary food chain.
A Chinese T-shirt company is setting up shop in Arkansas, lured by U.S. sewbots and lower production costs.
“Made in America” will soon grace the labels of T-shirts produced by a Chinese company in Little Rock.
By early 2018, Tianyuan Garments Co., based in the Suzhou Industrial Park in eastern China, will unveil a $20 million factory staffed by about 330 robots from Atlanta-based Softwear Automation Inc. The botmaker and garment company estimate the factory will stitch about 23 million T-shirts a year. The cost per shirt, according to Pete Santora, Softwear’s chief commercial officer: 33¢. . . .

Along with assurances that we’re facing an imminent takeover of industrial production by robots and other artificial intelligence (AI), we’re also being told that AI can develop its own systems of communication and operation, without help from humans.
Here is a sprinkling of quotes from the mainstream and technical press:
The Atlantic, June 15, 2017: “When Facebook designed chatbots to negotiate with one another, the bots made up their own way of communicating.”
Tech Crunch, November 22, 2016: “Google’s AI translation tool seems to have invented its own secret internal language.”
Wired, March 16, 2017: “It Begins: Bots Are Learning to Chat in Their Own Language.”
The suggestion is: AI can innovate. It can size up situations and invent unforeseen and un-programmed strategies, in order to accomplish set goals.
Who benefits from making such suggestions? Those companies and researchers who want to make the public believe AI is quite, quite powerful, and despite the downside risks (AI takes over its own fate), holds great promise for the human race in the immediate future. “Don’t worry, folks, we’ll rein in AI and make it work for us.”
Beyond that, the beneficiaries are technocratic Globalists who are in the process of bringing about a new society in which AI is intelligent and prescient enough to regulate human affairs at all levels. It’s the science fiction “populations ruled by machines” fantasy made into fact.
“AI doesn’t just follow orders. It sees what humans can’t see, and it runs things with greater efficiency.”
Let’s move past the propaganda and state a few facts. . . . Read Complete Report
Amazing! Conversation Between Robots – The Hunt for AI – BBC
SUBSCRIBED 824K Subscribe to Motherboard Radio today! http://apple.co/1DWdc9d In INHUMAN KIND, Motherboard gains exclusive access to a small fleet of US Army bomb disposal robots—the same platforms the military has weaponized—and to a pair of DARPA’s six-foot-tall bipedal humanoid robots. We also meet Nobel Peace Prize winner Jody Williams, renowned physicist Max Tegmark, and others who grapple with the specter of artificial intelligence, killer robots, and a technological precedent forged in the atomic age. It’s a story about the evolving relationship between humans and robots, and what AI in machines bodes for the future of war and the human race.
This technology sounds great and could be a major advancement for society right?
We here at THEI have been following the story of the Controllers plans of replacing Humans wit Robots sine we first brought THEI to the internet. Who do you think will take charge of the technology and use it for bad things? That’s our concern. . . Your Editor Dennis Crenshaw
Electronic synapses that can learn: Towards an artificial brain?

ORLANDO — Right now is a “profoundly hopeful” moment — a moment in which parts of healthcare can be transformed, the CEO of IBM said here.
“This idea of cognitive healthcare” — using computer systems that can learn — “is real, and it can change almost everything about healthcare,” Ginni Rometty said Monday at the annual meeting of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). “It’s within our power that we can change the world for the better.” . . .

The Computer That Could Be Smarter Than Us [IBM Watson]
This is the direction of the future. Useful AI that can do the research of a thoudand men instantly. It’s definitely worth noting that Watson is capable of learning (a point I didn’t touch on in this video), so what you see here is the “baby phase” so to speak. I tried to leave out the technical jargon in this video but for those who want to know more, a wiki dump on Watson is below:
According to John Rennie, Watson can process 500 gigabytes, the equivalent of a million books, per second.
Watson uses IBM’s DeepQA software and the Apache UIMA (Unstructured Information Management Architecture) framework.
The system is workload optimized, integrating massively parallel POWER7 processors and being built on IBM’s DeepQA technology, which it uses to generate hypotheses, gather massive evidence, and analyze data. Watson is composed of a cluster of ninety IBM Power 750 servers, each of which uses a 3.5 GHz POWER7 eight core processor, with four threads per core. In total, the system has 2,880 POWER7 processor cores and has 16 terabytes of RAM.
As you watch this video take notice of the cute little, friendly, crowd pleasing robot. Then imagine his knowledge moved to of the military robots you see coming out of one of the DARPA military robots. Do you think DARPA is already using Watson? I think they have already far SURPASSED this tchnology. Are you scared yet?. . . Your Editor Dennis Crenshaw

We have been reporting this movement towards Robots replacing humans here on THEI for years.
I’m sure the elitists have downsized the number of human slaves they will need to service their needs to almost zero as DARPA and their other robot creating entities are scheduled to produce more and more service and manufacturing robots.
A well known black comedian (can’t remember his name) once joked that when people of Color took over white people need not worry because “they would still need some of us around to pick the melons.”
That ain’t the way it will be for the elitist controllers… they’ll have robots to pick the melons . . . Your Editor Dennis Crenshaw.
⚠️10’S OF MILLIONS TO LOSE JOBS BY 2030 TO ROBOTS, MACHINES, AI & AUTOMATION ⚠️
Lowe’s is breaking ground by testing robots to help customers navigate their often massive stores and assist with purchases. Although no plans yet exist to implement the autonomous bots nationwide, some believe this is a big leap towards deeply integrating robotics into our daily lives, which experts believe will happen by 2025. RT’s Sam Sacks takes a look at what impact this may have on the human workforce.
Social pedestrian navigation, such as walking down a crowded sidewalk, is something humans take for granted, but the actual process is quite sophisticated – especially if you’re a robot.
Helping to solve competent robot navigationTHROUGH crowdedhuman spaces was the topic of a research presentation by CornellCOMPUTER science professor Ross Knepper and doctoral student Christoforos Mavrogiannis at the International Workshop on the Algorithmic Foundations of Robotics, Dec. 18-20 in San Francisco.
“The key insight to the research is that we’re trying to minimize uncertainty when people are around a robot that’s moving,” said Knepper. “In a human pedestrian situation, we all implicitly trust each other to behave in a competent manner. If I move right in a hallway, you will mirror that behavior. Building this same trust in robots is non-trivial because trust comes with prediction. There will be a smooth, socially competent experience if I trust the robot will go by me.” . . . Read complete report
