“Killer Robots” Could Commit “Atrocities” Says Former Google Engineer

Do you LOVE America?


    Laura Nolan, a former Google software engineer who left the company in protest of Project Maven, Google’s since-abandoned artificial intelligence development program for military drones, says killer robots could commit atrocities. If governments turn control of their weapons systems over to fully-autonomous machines, we may face devastating, unintentional calamities or acts of war.

    Nolan told The Guardian this week that there should always be a human finger on the trigger or else the technology can do “calamitous things that they were not originally programmed for.”  But humans commit atrocities too. Democide, or people being killed by their own government/authorities is the leading cause of human death other than natural causes. Humanity has been notoriously violent and forceful with each other.

    Who Inflicts the Most Gun Violence in America? The U.S. Government and Its Police Forces

    Even though most scientists want autonomous weapons completely banned, governments have no intention of doing so.  It would limit their ability to commit mass murder. Major military powers including Russiathe United Kingdom, and the United States have invested heavily in autonomous weapons, military drones, and battlefield robots. “You could have a scenario where autonomous weapons that have been sent out to do a job confront unexpected radar signals in an area they are searching,” Nolan told The Guardian.

    Nolan was illustrating a hypothetical problem area, suggesting that a machine might mistake hunters for enemy combatants and open fire.  But governments are the ones developing these machines and the humans who make up government have “made mistakes” and slaughtered innocent people during war too.  It isn’t the robot that’s morally corrupt here; it’s humanity and always has been.  Until we evolve past the idea that people have the right to murder and enslave and steal as long as they are voted for by a majority, we will experience atrocities committed by those who were given power that wasn’t theirs to have in the first place.

    “Very few people are talking about this but if we are not careful one or more of these weapons, these killer robots, could accidentally start a flash war, destroy a nuclear power station and cause mass atrocities,” Nolan added.

    The root cause of most of society’s ills–the main source of man’s inhumanity to man–is neither malice nor negligence, but a mere superstition–an unquestioned assumption which has been accepted on faith by nearly everyone, of all ages, races, religions, education and income levels. If people were to recognize that one belief for what it is–an utterly irrational, self-contradictory, and horribly destructive myth–most of the violence, oppression, and injustice in the world would cease. But that will happen only when people dare to honestly and objectively re-examine their belief systems. Most Dangerous Superstition exposes the myth for what it is, showing how nearly everyone, as a result of one particular unquestioned assumption, is directly contributing to violence and oppression without even realizing it. If you imagine yourself to be a compassionate, peace-loving, civilized human being, you must read this book.

      1. The Bilderbergs-Soros-Rothchilds-Military- are building these robots not for war. But to kill the masses. Genocide. This is intentional. That is the purpose of AI and Robots.

        You people underestimate the EVIL of these people.
        * Read the Georgia Guidestones.
        * Read the book of Revelation in KJV bible.
        You have been warned about the intentions of the EVIL “Elite”.

        * “Technology is not your friend.”
        * “Technology allows the Few to Control, and then to ELIMINATE the many.” Yes this includes YOU and your family.

        So what are you going to do about the Hell that is on your doorstep? Not to mention the World War that your politicians are about to start. Endless wars. Never ends.

        Jesus Christ is your only hope.

      2. How is that any different from what we have now? Soldiers are told to kill the “enemy” and they obey without knowing if they are being told the truth about what they are doing? They only difference I can possibly see is that some soldiers eventually suffer from the cognitive dissonance of willingly committing murder even though they think of themselves as nice guys, while the robots will suffer no fits of conscience.

      3. Do they get these ideas from movies or do movies discredit these ideas? “Oh, you seen that in a movie”, paints the concept in something other than reality. So if you load a movie with many facts (JFK) you reduce reality to fantasy. Regardless two decades forward are likely to be dystopian at worst and merely surprising at best; we’re in for surprises either way.

      4. Hmm…
        Robots? Humans?
        It’s a horse race.

      5. Oh boy!! We better all buy those $3,000 seed banks and the new galvanized plastic ditch digging shovels that fit into your edible bugout barf bags, just click the Amazon links in the “farce” err story yarn.

        O people died due to Robutts,
        53 Americans died in mass shootings in August
        — and 40,000 died from obesity…
        Yet it is the robutts you fear porn schmuck you

      6. Bert

        “O people died due to Robutts”

        O people died in car accidents just before the car made its appearance too.

      7. Danger, Will Robinson! Danger !

      8. Could ?? more like will or repeatedly, often .. Who will be held responsible ? nobody, it was the machine. Like guns leap off tables and shoot people.It’s never the people, unless they are expendable white guys.

      9. What we need is a massive cleaning of the gene pool. THINK!!!… the number of low life criminals, robbers and thugs are increasing with their uncontrolled breeding, with plenty support from the government providing them free food, health care and housing. Generally, the higher level of intelligent people are having less children and having them later in life. Eventually, the throngs of illiterate scavengers will over-run those who work for a living and take everything they have. We can’t feel sorry for the thugs if we want to survive, they certainly won’t hesitate to kill us off to get what we have. Mad Max is coming, get prepared and be thorough in eliminating them from the gene pool.

      10. Question for sovereign citizens:

        Plank 4 of the Communist Manifesto —
        Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

        Why is formal citizenship vs. aboriginal status supposed to be the issue, deciding whether you will be democided and your resources stolen.

      11. Robots just do what people program them to do and they learn from what they see in the human condition.

        And despite the majority of complaining about racism being directed against whites, the reality is the majority of the world’s population is not white, but they are racist and tend to not like other ethnicities.

        Take the Chinese for example. Han Chinese are very race aware people. They are also very advanced with computing and robotics. Think their robots are going to be nice to non-Chinese? I don’t.

        I am sure they already have robots calibrated for Africa and set to kill.
