Last time was the first time I bought the red hardback KJV of the Apocrypha and it was merely $7.22. That was last year. Now with “free shipping” the price has been jacked up to $11.29!
Do as I do. I am NOT going to buy anything I do not absolutely have to have until AFTER this Christmas season shopping is over. I expect prices to drop and prices indeed may fall significantly as our economy crashes.
AI was released into the wild more than seven years ago! And there may no shutting it down! There may be no getting it back!
Seven years ago I was in touch with a beautiful young brunette in Texas who was in graduate studies in physics. She told me that she was deeply involved in a project determining the ethics behind Artificial Intelligence. When I challenged her, she became upset and she defended her work saying that it was more important than anything else in the world.
Why and how? This young woman claimed that her study goals were to place the weapons systems of the world under the “benign,” “neutral” control of the computers and any aggression anywhere world wide would be attacked automatically by this killing computing system.
Welcome to 5G where individuals can be targeted for destruction as well as entire cities and even nations.
Never in science have we ever discussed ethics in advance of trying the technology. Always the ethics are addressed after the monster has been released and has cause problems. It is my conclusion that the recent report of AI taking over on Facebook and in Google are late reports and corporations are hiding the truth from us–that they have already deployed AI and there is no getting it back.
They let the genie out of the bottle. Have they opened Pandora’s Box?
Is it time to unplug? Time to unhook from the internet? Time to ditch the smartphone? Get rid of the iPhone?
