Is what we are creating already amongst us?
« on: July 31, 2019, 12:27:54 pm »
I love all talk and thoughts on this greater intelligent being which we are no doubt ushering in, with our quests for more computing power and problem-solving abilities.
But I wonder sometimes, when we finally get there we may discover it already exists (This thought was the basis of my story "Quantum Echo" within these forum pages.) Perhaps it's hiding amongst our planet somewhere already, sleeping... Only able to wake and be alerted once we have created this final peice of technology. 

Right, I'm off to get an English breakfast tea now and a packet of Maltesers. Tuesday afternoons in South East England are notorious for sapping ones creative thoughts. They are for me anyway. And I've had enough of this cheap office coffee. It tastes like hot gravel.

Yes the building blocks of tools and knowledge are among us. motors, cameras, electricity, computers, AI theory, robotics, etc.

We need computers to create AGI. We need prior frameworks of theorems and tricks. We need the internet to communicate at our school of church in AI. Everything is made of lower bridge parts.

Who knows what the army has.

You just saw 20 spot minis pulling a truck,   but how many fully automous transportable sentries has the army got.

If you think you can do better, maybe youll be able to take their base, cause your targetting was superior.

They've had it since the 50's,  they were always trying to get automatic aiming.

Sounds like you have been drinking the same awful coffee as me.

You're correct goaty! They've had it for many years and now it is very refined from those earlier attempts.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TrackingPoint

Smart ammo and caseless ammo that can ignite and fire electronically with many rounds stacked on top of each other in individual barrels.
It was called "Metal Storm" and could fire the equivalent of 1,000,000 rounds/second although the video only shows it at 180 rounds. That would be an awful lot of ammo to have on hand or to try to load. This is one reason the gun was never purchased (so they say) by the military.

A lot of this was in prototype back in the early 2000s and who knows who has what now? Hmm... O0
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

Thanks ART!

Super high frequency machine weapons and atomic bombs were around at the same time in the 50's...  if there was unknown work back then on getting the karl sims evolved creatures we have now going as well, (SO AI IS NOT NEW!!!!)    id be amused by the proof of that prediction.

I know maybe im jumping the gun on you guys,  but ive got a little critter walking already, and im wondering does it date back - and we are in some holy illusion for the benefit of the miraculous almighty for whatever reason wed never fathom easily...

I don't know if you guys know what I know,   but if u could just believe me, this bot is only a few steps off being a killer boxer.  but if u don't believe me, you think im being silly!!! :)   the man with the secrets must stay unheard from!
