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

IBM Chief Proclaims ‘Profoundly Hopeful’ Era
From Medpage Today
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]
YouTube ~ ColdFusion
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.
How Watson Worked on “Jeopardy!”:
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

Sheffield, UK (SPX) Apr 03, 2013
Swarms of robots acting together to carry out jobs could provide new opportunities for humans to harness the power of machines.
Researchers in the Sheffield Centre for Robotics, jointly established by the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University, have been working to program a group of 40 robots, and say the ability to control robot swarms could prove hugely beneficial in a range of contexts, from military to medical. . . .

This video shows clips from the IROS 2011 robot exhibition in San Francisco. A 100 kilobot robots travelled from Boston to California; the demonstration shows the robots performing a simple diffusive behavior, where they move randomly so long as they can hear neighbors but stop if they no longer hear the swarm.
Keep in mind these reports are from 2011 and 2010 respectably. Using all of the advances in Robotics we have reported on here at THEI for the time since these reports we can only imagine just how far the knowledge of building Combat Robots has progressed. The thing that concerns me is that after the military perfects these killing machines in their undeclared wars in far off places; when the American people finally wake up – and they will wake-up someday – will the same robotic killers be turned on us? . . .

The US already has thousands of military robots and unmanned aircraft in Afghanistan. As for the prospect of killer robots stalking the battlefield Russia is catching up, with a Russian team building one too.

(Phys.org) — Engineers should stop working on killer robots and kick the habit of military funding, a leading Australian applied ethicist has said.
In a paper published in IEEE Technology and Society Magazine, Monash University philosopher Dr Robert Sparrow, called on engineers to boycott work on military robots such as the controversial ‘Predator’ drone from the United States. “It is clear that military organisations fund a significant amount of, and perhaps even most of, robotics research today,” Dr Sparrow said. . . .

Here is a GREAT Report from Live Science that I somehow missed back in February. It defines perfectly what we are following in our “Robot becomes Human” research. Sorry it took so long guys, but at least it’s now in our research archive. Highly recommended. . . EDITOR
from Live Science
Real robot names such as Roomba and Asimo don’t evoke as much fear as the fictional “Terminator.” But consider that Roomba, the automated vacuum cleaner, is manufactured by iRobot, creator also of armed robot warriors for the U.S. military. And Asimo represents just the first wave of an incoming tsunami of robots that strive to look and act eerily human.
It goes beyond automated vacuums and mildly entertaining dance-bots. Japan and Korea plan to deploy humanoid robots to care for the elderly, while the United States already fields thousands of robot warriors on the modern battlefield. Meanwhile, plenty of people have enhanced their bodies technologically in ways that bring them closer to their robotic brethren.
So it’s OK to become a bit of a paranoid android, because many experts say that the robotic future is rapidly approaching . . . Read Complete Report
