Pentagon: Artificial intelligence will fight terrorists in Syria

66
The Pentagon said that the first months of 2018, the year will devote to the elimination of scattered gangs, previously included in the terrorist group "Islamic State" (* banned in the Russian Federation). This message comes against the background of reports from Syria that American helicopters again "lit up" when exporting the leaders of ISIS * from the province of Deir ez-Zor in Hasek.


And on the eve of the American television channel CNN published material on the use of US elements of artificial intelligence to combat ISIS *. We are talking about the development of "Maven", which allows you to conduct activities in the military sphere, directed against the activity of terrorists.

It is reported that the artificial intelligence system is a robotic analysis of video content, filmed by unmanned aerial vehicles. Today, as noted, terabytes of video are being sent to headquarters, but it’s not possible to analyze all the footage “in manual” mode. To date, as stated in the material, 99% of the entire video from US UAVs has not been studied. To the aid, as the Pentagon considers, in this case artificial intelligence of the Maven program will come. He will “watch” the video from the drones, then identify the points of activity of the terrorists and transfer commands to destroy targets.

Pentagon: Artificial intelligence will fight terrorists in Syria


It does not say whether the teams will eventually be filtered by a person, or will the drone strike be delivered solely on the basis of the data of the program used? If everything is designed for the second option, then are the Pentagon ready to guarantee that the program did not make a mistake, and that the blow was dealt specifically to the terrorists?

        More likely a fantastic story, this idea seemed to me too fantastic. What would the AI ​​used for military purposes experience emotions, and even uncontrolled it is somehow frivolous.

            I read it a long time ago. The same thing, the philosophical theme touches, but not particularly with the technical part. Like his AI, located in a particular supercomputer, he was able to make the human mind reborn not in the real world, but in the computer. This is no longer AI, but the Lord God, since he is juggling human lives in such a way, it is obviously an exhaustive search of AI capabilities.

              When they insert neatly (and they already learned this) a sufficient number of electrodes into different areas of the brain and connect to the AI, no one will figure out where the Lord God ends and where the software and the Google database begin.
              And with whom do you talk about Buddhist philosophy (for example): with a person or with a computer you (or I) cannot be determined with all desire.
              Pelevin only closely follows the latest science and puts it into utopia / dystopia.

                This is already possible, I do not argue. There are already cases of passing the Turing test of AI.
                When they insert neatly (and they already learned this) a sufficient number of electrodes into different areas of the brain and connect to the AI, no one will figure out where the Lord God ends and where the software and the Google database begin.

                Yes, but there is a slightly different aspect. In his novel, the AI ​​forces the deceased main character to be born, not in real life, but in the memory of a supercomputer. It's like you and I caught God, killed him and forced him to be born an ordinary person in earthly life. Unfortunately, or fortunately, this is impossible, the system cannot know itself from within, you need a view from the side, the point of view of an outside observer, and apparently no one wants to provide it to us, or cannot.
                I liked the idea in this book that perhaps we all are similar AIs, and that programmer or group of programmers who messed up all this and call God, Allah, Buddha, etc., but in the end it doesn’t matter, because we cannot understand the “real” or “artificial” reality from the inside, for us everything will always be real, as well as for the AI ​​that will be created by man in the future. Now this process is at an early stage. So far, in the broad sense, AI created by man does not exist.

    The idea is promising and, as it develops, it can be useful in the civilian world, because the main thing is the principle of sifting away slag from really valuable and necessary information. This way you can identify for example hares in transport or malicious non-payers of alimony according to the gait and frequency of blinking eyes, drug addicts, corrupt officials and anyone in general as you know, the government has no conscience, but there is only a thirst to hold on to the throne for a longer time. Therefore, therefore, the most monstrous excesses and indecencies are possible against the masses of the people, and if a cold machine detached from greed and power-hungry stands over the people of earthlings , then many crimes can be crushed in the bud or completely eliminated, because you won’t get away from punishment and you won’t give the megasuperkompu. It sounds fantastic now, but humanity is inevitably moving towards such a model. Technologies are developing rapidly and it remains only to come up with an add-on of highly moral and incorruptible Homo sapiens who will be in the hierarchy stand in Above e-government and will not allow any injustice in relation to ordinary people.
