Re: OMG: Google buys Boston Dynamics !!!
I dunno why, but THIS story in particular is giving me the creeps.

They don't care anymore at all with hiding it from the people, all wide in the open.... just like seeing approaching the endstage of whatever is coming.

Makes me wonder about what it is they REALLY care and hide from us then ?

lolz it's in all the old sci-fi books and movies,
the rich are going to make robots to replace everyone.

i think you'll see big walled citys soon with the "haves"
[rich people] living in them and "have nots" [everyone other then the rich] living outside of them,

way faster then building stuff in space like a movie that's out now.

if only the rich can have college and loans,
they have won the whole 1st world.

not that any of this is new, mind you.

I remember those stories as a kid. Just seemed a natural extrapolation of gated communities. The corporation owned the city and if you got fired you got thrown outside the wall.
Government is a body largely ungoverned.

Packs of robots will hunt down uncooperative humans

The latest request from the Pentagon jars the senses. At least, it did mine. They are looking for contractors to provide a "Multi-Robot Pursuit System" that will let packs of robots "search for and detect a non-cooperative human".

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 51515031


Why?

How is taking the job away from a consumer who gets the money he needs to consume goods away --and give it to a robot -- help the corporate world?

Given that the DOD is heavily involved, and driving this entire technology -- I do not think it is our jobs that they are after. Gulp....

SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!!

Human Revolution Events

Much later, Jensen would find Megan Reed at a secret installation in Singapore and learn that Darrow is actually one of the masterminds behind the entire sequence of events. But whereas the others from the Illuminati were planning to create a universal biochip with a master signal to control mechanical augmented people and force them under the thrall of corporate masters, Darrow had a much different plan in mind.

Giving a speech at Panchaea with the world watching, Darrow insisted he would show humanity the true effects of mechanical augmentation, and activated his universal signal; this caused all mechanical augmented people on Earth to suffer mass hallucinations, driving them insane. As the augmented humans of all nations began to slaughter everyone in their path, Jensen rushed to Panchaea to deactivate the signal, where he met Darrow again, on his broken throne. There, the elderly philanthropist explained his motivations to Jensen.

He claimed that, as a disabled man himself, Darrow once wished for his augmentation technology to enhance humanity and improve the quality of life for everyone, but now saw that his technology has been perverted by the powerful into just another means of control over the less fortunate. People always corrupted technology and used it against each other, and in the case of augmentations, Darrow felt mankind was on the verge of losing its humanity and its moral center.

Though his actions were extreme, Darrow believed they were necessary to show the world the dangers of mechanical augmentation, particularly as the Illuminati intended to use it as an advanced killswitch for all of mankind. According to his vision, humanity should abandon mechanical augmentation technology and future generations should grow up whole and human, without the specter of enhancement over them.

Darrow serves as the game's final dialogue challenge. Jensen can either belittle him as being afraid of change and unwilling to let humanity evolve beyond him (as Darrow himself can not be mechanically augmented), critique him as being too extreme and nothing more than a sanctimonious mass-murderer causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands just to prove a point, or reason with him that humanity has used technology to improve itself every time and that mechanical augmentation will lead to a better life for all. If Jensen can successfully show Darrow the errors in his position, Darrow will give Jensen the code to shut down the life support system of the Hyron Project, making the final boss significantly easier. At this point in the game, Adam may murder Darrow with no repercussions.

After shutting down the Hyron Project Jensen will advance to its central hub, where he find the signal controller. There he can send a message to the world of his choice - one of them being Darrow's. Darrow had created a complete video confession, explaining the conspiracy, the Illuminati,and the consequences of mechanical augmentation technology. He intended to reveal the truth to the whole world, and thus start off humanity again on a clean slate. Jensen can choose to release this message and thus earn one of the endings.

Re: OMG: Google buys Boston Dynamics !!!
Google has acquired robotics engineering company Boston Dynamics, best known for its line of quadrupeds with funny gaits and often mind-blowing capabilities. Products that the firm has demonstrated in recent years include BigDog, a motorized robot that can handle ice and snow, the 29 mile-per-hour Cheetah, and an eerily convincing humanoid known as PETMAN. News of the deal was reported on Friday by The New York Times, which says that the Massachusetts-based company's role in future Google projects is currently unclear.

Specific details about the price and terms of the deal are currently unknown, though Google told the NYT that existing contracts including a $10.8 million contract inked earlier this year with the US Defense Agency Research Projects Agency (DARPA) would be honored. Despite the DARPA deal, Google says it doesn't plan to become a military contractor "on its own," according to the Times.

Boston Dynamics began as a spinoff from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1992, and quickly started working on projects for the military. Besides BigDog, that includes Cheetah, an animal-like robot developed to run at high speeds, which was followed up by a more versatile model called WildCat. It's also worked on Atlas, a humanoid robot designed to work outdoors.

In a tweet, Google's Andy Rubin who formerly ran Google's Android division said the "future is looking awesome."

Now TODAY I read this article:

Facebook develops algorithm that will learn EVERYTHING about you from photos........

Social network will analyze and then 'make sense' of shared content from photos to 'likes'

Facebook will then be able to better target individuals

New lab being set up at New York University specifically to study and improve 'Artificial Intelligence' systems


So, when will they join team Google/Boston Dynamics for the ultimate killing/hunting machine????

Google does not care about "customers". People fail to realize that Google is mainly a research (and development) company. They have close ties to Stanford, NASA and the government. What Google is trying to accomplish is something much more. Steve Jobs once said something like- if you have to ask what the consumer wants then your already behind (sorry can't recall actual quote). But these PTB in the innovation and tech industries are plans that determine our world in the next hundred years and beyond. It is all in its infancy but regardless of anything they will need to gain absolute control of you and me aka the consumer.
