I mean do you want OP armies, or misinformed armies, or a disastrous mix of both?

I am not a big fan of AI being misused as weapons of war.

A gun exists because other gun exists. Nice little chain reaction. The sentence of our lives.
Dream big. The bigger the dream is, the more beautiful place the world becomes.

One day our omega structure may face a evil omega structure full of hate and demolition. It would be a even matched fight between the 2 biggest god giants ever. Full destruction and regeneration instantly would ensure. Can they even die or kill? The issue is seeing it approaching before it reaches you. The one fear is a bomb tracker. It just hits you. The only possibility is you can grow so large the odds is more unlikely.

The premise sort of goes back to the potential nuclear conflict between the USA and Russia. Each side had enough nuclear weapons to completely wipe out each other's country. The term that was applied then was M.A.D.  (Mutually Assured Destruction) or to that effect.

It has been ingrained in humans for eons. Ever see a snowball fight. Each side begins making as many snowballs as they can yet there's always someone who will really compact and compress the snowballs until they're practically iceballs. Then things escalate...and so it goes.

In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

Unfortunately art is correct and that is the biggest problem with this all. It is like watching a horror movie come to life.

So an AMT_Hardballer and a Desert Eagle get together in the Biblical sense and a FN_Baby_Browning is born... (Unless the AMT is shooting blanks.)

The Wonders of Nature. :D


I don't think I'd want Alexa in the room when I was discussing battle plans.
