"We May Only Have a Few Years" To Prevent Killer Robots

The arrival date of The Singularity - the point at which artificial intelligence surpasses that of humans - is accelerating. In Ray Kurzweil's 2006 book, The Singularity is Near, he put the final date at 2045.

According to a new TEDx lecture by robotics pioneer, David Hanson (posted below), this date is likely to arrive much sooner based on current trends of exponential growth in computing and technology.

The question still remains, What will this new super intelligence really look like?

Many scientists and robotics experts are beginning to sound the alarm that the proper parameters for robot development and interaction with humans has not been established within a foolproof ethical framework. This has led to human rights organizations and universities like Cambridge to issue formal cautions against the inevitable rise of "Terminator Robots" who are outfitted with all of the current moral capacity of the human beings that have given us modern weapons of warfare. Such a super intelligence would identify humans themselves as part of the threat matrix and seek to eradicate us as a threat to them.

This concern has spawned an unresolved dialogue at the United Nations, and even the U.S. military is seeking ways to create moral, ethical robots. While I can't suggest that the United Nations or the U.S. military would be the sources for any help on issues of peace, debate needs to intensify - quickly - about what we can collectively do to prevent dystopian science fiction from becoming reality.

Hanson sees many upsides to human-robot cooperation and the evolution of humanoid robots which would have similar creative abilities. But he asserts that we need to incorporate more humanity into robot development. But one then has to wonder: What type of human? The type that seeks hierarchical control, total domination, and fabricating wars to change the geopolitical landscape? Clearly that would be a step backward, not forward. Can a robot be taught only to have empathy and compassion and not the more destructive human traits?

It's an important lecture covering a future that is fast approaching and will affect nearly everyone. In fact, much more already exists than you might imagine. Please leave your comments about what we should be doing. Do we implement some sort of international ban on creating killer robots? Do we permit the current level of autonomous systems of warfare such as drones, but demand that humans must give final directives and ultimately bear full responsibility for any violations? Do we issue a moratorium on merging artificial intelligence with robots until a full range of independent research can be thoroughly considered?

We look forward to your thoughts.

The issue is, very unfortunately, there really isn't a damn thing we can do about it, which is horrendous, but that's the truth. No matter what the ethical people do about it, there will be others who are ethics-free, and only care how we can make it more effective and lethal. The age of terrorist Robots is almost here.

* It's also called 'psychometric-selection' in profiling 'room temp. IQ' control-freak "Junk Yard Dog" mentality pscho/sicophants to all 'authority' with major self esteem issues (you know... the bullies nobody liked in school) as perfectly suited for intimidating the public to submit & bend over for this particular brand of 'Top Dog' policemen/women.
... Police Chiefs all over America et al have been 'trained' in 'Israhell' via Mossad domination techniques (By way of deception...thou shalt do war-credo) used for gross intimidation & crowd control in shoot first & then beat senseless, anyone who has different ideas than the "Policyman' inculcated directives from on high....ya-know...the same uber wealthy dual-citizen zionist/fascist 'Chosen Ones' that hijacked the W.H. at the inception of 9/11
....How obvious does this need to be for people to leave their 'offense/defense' comfort zones of 'cognitive dissonance'

I think that imagining we will have any actual control over the development and distribution of ADE, (artificially developed entities) is ridiculous. We will exert as much control over the ADE industry as we currently hold over the heroin trade. Would probably be better spent time developing protocol for same sex robot weddings.

i am giving a testimony of how i become rich and famous today... i was deeply strangled up by poverty and i had no body to help me, and also i search for help from different corners but to no avail... i see people around me getting rich but to me i was so ashamed of my self so i met a man on my way he was very rich and he was a doctor so he told me something and i think over it though out the day so the next day i looked up and i keep repeating what he said to me.

" if you want to get rich quick and be famous"
you need to cross your heart and do what
is in your mind

so i tried all i could in other for me to do as he said so later on i told my fellow friend about this same thing then my friend was interested in my suggestions so i decided to look in the internet and i found an email address of this great fraternity( so we decided to contact them and unfortunately we did as they instruct us to do and later they told us to get some requirements and all the rest... so this initiation took us just a week and later on the great fraternity gave us $70,000,000.00 to start up our lives.... and now am testifying that if in any case you want to join any great fraternity all you need to do is for you to contact them because they are legitimate and they do as what they instructed them to do okay so email them now at ( )

If I'm not mistaken Chomsky believes in the Warren Commission. Not sure about Zinn, in his last year I saw his appearance at UC Santa Barbara on UCTV where a student confronted him over 9/11 and he said he "did not see what good it could do" to re-open the 9/11 investigation. There are many better writers on US history than Zinn, he failed to address the violence that was internal to the US labor movement.

They let him on C-Span BookTV but otherwise he is BANNED from American TV!

The Genius of the Few by Christian O'Brien came out before Stichen published similar material. Truly revolutionary.

Hard to believe nobody else knows about "America's Nazi Secret" by former DOJ attorney John Loftus. It's apparently banned from mention in the media. Loftus was a DOJ lawyer hunting down escaped Nazi war criminals and became aware of some of the most powerful figures in the government actually partnering with some of the worst war criminals--before, during, and after WW2. Absolutely stunning, he even explains where Lyme disease came from (web search the distribution pattern).
All the books by Antony Sutton are indispensable, effectively they serve as a twin body of work to Loftus. Once you comprehend the material you see that the academic version of the 20th Century is one gigantic lie of omission; the investment banking class was economically, strategically integrated with the empowering of BOTH Hitler and Stalin. They caused World War 2. Sutton's books are almost all at, where you can also find the material related to the Reece Commission which discovered how the richest philanthropies were funding the radical left even in the 50s (the accomplished goal to be "oligarchic collectivism"). is a treasure chest of many hard-to-get items including some of the materials cited below.

You had me for a moment, right up to #20 "Big Brother: The Orwellian Nightmare Come True, Mark Dice" Mark Dice is an egotistical, idiot pretending to have brains.There are so many better choices for this list than his diatribes.
