I caught a headline somewhere today saying something about a new robot that runs like forest gump as if such a thing was a big joke!

Except those kind of robots are being developed by DARPA with military funding because ultimately the aim of such robots will be to run down human beings so either that journalist is a simpleton that doesn't realise the military applications of this hardware or they are in the game of deliberately managing the perceptions of the public

police and army might refuse to fire on their own citizens but robots won't.....there's nothing funny about that

Humanoid robot Atlas can jump over obstacles and hunt you down (VIDEOS)

Freshly released videos show that robots created by Boston Dynamics are learning a host of new skills, including running outside, jumping and autonomous navigation.

In one of the videos, the barrel-chested humanoid robot Atlas is seen jogging around a yard. The machine’s relentless running style and powerful frame suggests that, if it speeds up a bit, it might have a future chasing down criminals on city streets.

The battery-powered robot is 1.5 meters tall and weighs 75kg. It uses LiDAR and stereo vision to assess its surroundings. The footage shows it running on surfaces that appear to be sloped and uneven, something robots have struggled with in the past.

Robot manufacturers warned 'bug in AI code' will lead to MURDER SPREES

KILLER robot manufacturers have been warned a "bug in AI code" could lead to horror malfunctions that include unintended murder sprees.

Autonomous weaponry is poised to be thrust into the military market and used by the world's leading nations.

Group Campaign to Stop Killer robots has even warned the murderous machines are on the cusp of "mass production".

But an expert in artificial intelligence believes their introduction will come at a truly devastating cost.

Oklahoma University lecturer Dr Subhash Kak has warned a flaw in their design could result in a large number of deaths.

Dr Kak told Daily Star Online: "The manufacturers are cognisant of such malfunction of fault which they will do their best to minimise or eliminate.

Artificial intelligence weaponry successfully trialled on mock urban battlefield
By Victoria Ward Martin Evans, CRIME CORRESPONDENT
24 September 2018 • 6:00am

A cutting edge weapon that uses artificial intelligence to scan the battlefield for enemy movements has been successfully tested for the first time.

The system, that was developed by British experts, uses space age technology to monitor and track opposing forces in built up areas.

It can then rapidly flag dangers to soldiers, giving them an “edge” in a warzone, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said.

The technology, developed by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and UK industry partners, known as SAPIENT, also reduces human error and frees up other soldiers who currently have to man live CCTV-type feeds to monitor enemy movement, it is claimed.

The quest for dominance on the battlefield has become a race to develop the most advanced electronics and computing with debates rife over the use of killer military robots.

General Mark Carleton-Smith, the head of the Army, spoke earlier this year of a "darkening geopolitical picture" and said warfare was moving into areas such as cyberwarfare, artificial intelligence and autonomous technology.

"We need a more proactive, threat-based approach to our capability planning, including placing big bets on those technologies that we judge may offer exponential advantage because, given the pace of the race, to fall behind today is to cede an almost unquantifiable advantage from which it might be impossible to recover,” he said.

In November, the Army is expected to start testing autonomous aircraft and vehicles for delivering supplies to frontline forces.

It has also unveiled a new 'social media' app which allows soldiers to win wars using their mobile phones.

The Dismounted Situational Awareness Tool was hailed a "game changer" by a senior Army officer after trials during the recent US-led Exercise Sabre Strike involving 18,000 troops and 19 countries across Eastern Europe.

Last week, it emerged that the US army was investing in augmented reality goggles to help its soldiers in combat.

Documents revealed that it had held meetings with London gaming start-up Improbable, as well as US giants Magic Leap and Microsoft, about a contract to develop the technology for the frontline.

The three-week SAPIENT trial was the latest in the series of Contested Urban Environment experiments which sees soldiers from the Five Eyes allied nations of the UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and US testing the latest military technology.

The UK is set to host a similar exercise in 2020, the MoD said.

Frightening and dangerous future of warfare as ‘Robocalypse’ is on the horizon
Darius Shahtahmasebi is a New Zealand-based legal and political analyst, currently specialising in immigration, refugee and humanitarian law.
Published time: 28 Sep, 2018 11:16

If there is one thing the United States is increasingly adept at, its finding a way to make international warfare even scarier and unpredictable than it already is by its very definition. According to the Daily Beast, the US military has tested, on a number of occasions, a brain implant that allows a human operator to control, with their own thoughts, up to three unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), simultaneously.

According to the agency which oversaw the computer-simulated tests – the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) – the tests were conducted between June 2016 and January 2017.

The Daily Beast’s account states that the test subject, being partially paralyzed, was able to complete the tests by channelling his thoughts through a medical implant embedded in his skull, which used electroencephalogram (EEG) to interface with a computer simulation of a drone carrying out a mission in the company of two, simulated unmanned support aircraft. The support aircraft were apparently based loosely on fictional aircraft.

And how was this done? Through surgery. That’s right. The volunteer test subject, Mr Nathan Copeland, had to undergo surgery to place electrodes in his brain to successfully complete a neural interface. Through this surgery, Copeland was able to send brain signals to the drones and the drones were able to send signals back to him so that he was able to perceive the environment of the drone. The drone was then itself able to scan its environment, detect an obstacle in its pathway, and send the signal back to the operator with its recommendation.

In a separate phase of the experiment, a test subject was able to physically perceive the physical space and feel what the drone saw at the same time that the drone responded to the commands it was given. You might say that man and drone became one.

Right now, across the South Korean border is Samsung’s SGR-A1 sentry gun, reportedly capable of firing autonomously as well as being able to perform surveillance, voice-recognition, tracking and firing with mounted machine gun or grenade launcher. According to NBC, the robot can automatically detect North Korean soldiers walking over the border and can open fire with no human input (though this is allegedly not done in practice).

In the UK, Taranis, a top-secret unmanned aircraft, can travel at supersonic speeds to be used by the British military to carry out pre-meditated attacks with full autonomy.

No one talks about it, but Israel also uses unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) to not only patrol its borders but also to replace soldiers on missions, as well. Israel’s Border Patroller model can be armed with remote-controlled weapons, reconnaissance means, and additional components that cannot be fitted on the traditional Guardium model it had been using for years prior. Israeli has also developed an unmanned patrol ship that is currently defending Israel’s strategic ports and patrolling the coastline.

Not to mention the ‘Harpy’, a loitering munition developed by Israel Aerospace Industries with a brain of its own, programmed to cruise until it detects hostile activity.

Israel further claims to have advanced a “drone that can reach Iran,” an unmanned aerial vehicle that can stay airborne for 24 hours and is believed to be capable of launching air-to-surface missiles. In similar fashion, the UK is also designing a fully autonomous drone that can stay airborne for 24 hours, which has already been tested in Australia.

As far as one can see, the world record appears to be held by QinetiQ’s Zephyr, an ultra-lightweight, solar-powered UAV which conducted an endurance flight lasting a whopping 14 days while flying at 70,000 feet.

I could go on, but I am getting dangerously close to my word limit.

Is a bicycle alive? Can an elephant fit through a house door? DARPA to teach AI ‘common sense’
Published time: 14 Oct, 2018 20:17
Edited time: 15 Oct, 2018 09:05

The US military research agency will spend millions helping computers engage better with the real world – a necessary step en-route to creating genuinely sentient robots, and not just calculating machines.

“The absence of common sense prevents an intelligent system from understanding its world, communicating naturally with people, behaving reasonably in unforeseen situations, and learning from new experiences,” Dave Gunning, a program manager in DARPA’s Information Innovation Office, said.

“This absence is perhaps the most significant barrier between the narrowly focused AI applications we have today and the more general AI applications we would like to create in the future,” he added, as the agency announced its Machine Common Sense (MCS) program.

Rather than stuffing them with complex algorithms for every situation, researchers want computers to organically imitate what learning babies go through as they grow and adjust to their environment. To do so, AI will need to understand how physical objects perform in the real world, the spatial relationship between them, and to recognize the basic psychological motivation of the living things around them.
“During the first few years of life, humans acquire the fundamental building blocks of intelligence and common sense,” Gunning said. “Developmental psychologists have found ways to map these cognitive capabilities across the developmental stages of a human’s early life, providing researchers with a set of targets and a strategy to mimic for developing a new foundation for machine common sense.”

The approach to this will be twofold: the first is to create a computational model that is capable of learning like an infant, combining “natural language processing, deep learning, and other areas of AI research.”

The second is to create a repository of common sense knowledge. By scanning the internet, with help from researchers and crowdsourcing, the team plan to compile an ever-growing database of common human behavior, settings, and scenarios, which can then be combined with the AI learning mechanism.

How long do those Boston Dynamics robots
go on one battery charge?An hour?Two hours?
Maybe not even that.
When they equip those things with a mini nuclear plant,
as they do with nuclear subs,then I would start worrying.
Because then you can't even destroy them for risk of a
nuclear fallout.
For now,the *very* weakest point is the battery life on
those things...

so you recognise them to be a threat against human life?

Right now I don't see them as a threat.
But it is something to keep a watch on...

right but you accept that they are being built with certain intents in mind which is to say for military applications ie the killing or pursuit of humans and also for the replacement of humans in the work place thereby rendering the working class without the labour that was historically their only bargaining chip in their relation with the elite?

Thereby representing a DOUBLE threat both to the liberty of individuals but also to their livelihood...

do you also accept that technology is advancing at an exponential rate which means that newer technologies will arrive faster and faster which means that these robots could represent a threat far sooner than you might imagine if you only consider how quickly things are moving now

Surgical robot BOTCHES surgery, kills man on operating table while doctors sipped lattes
November 15, 2018 by IWB
by: Ethan Huff

In the name of scientific “progress,” Newcastle’s Freeman Hospital in the United Kingdom recently tried to pioneer the use of a surgical robot that it tasked with repairing a patient’s damaged heart valve, only to have the machine go completely bonkers and ultimately kill the man on the operating table.

According to reports, this first-time-use robot not only physically assaulted a living medic while attempting to conduct its programmed surgery, but also implanted stitches into the patient’s heart in a manner that physicians present during the fiasco described as notbeing in “an organised fashion.”

A situation that can only be described as total chaos, with human surgeons, doctors, and nurses having to scream at each other in order to overcome the “tinny” sound coming from the robot as they were trying to control it, the attempted surgery ended up being nothing short of a complete failure. And in the end, retired music teacher and conductor, Stephen Pettitt, the guinea pig patient in this medical experiment, ultimately lost his life.
Lead surgeon admits that he was ill-prepared to operate the surgical robot, having skipped multiple training sessions

During a hearing that followed this catastrophe, lead surgeon Sukumaran Nair admitted that he lacked proper experience in controlling and using the surgical robot, stating that he was “running before he could walk.” In other words, it was truly a case of medical negligence and malpractice on steroids.

As later revealed by the U.K.’s Daily Mail Online, Nair not only missed a critical training session in Paris that would have taught him how to properly use the surgical robot, but he also wasn’t present for another training sessions that later took place at his own hospital, claiming that he was busy with another surgery at the time.

While supervisory experts were supposed to have been present for this surgery-gone-wrong, which should have prevented this type of nightmare from ever even occurring, they, too, were reportedly missing when things started to hit the fan.

According to Thasee Pillay, Nair’s assisting surgeon, these overseeing proctors had apparently “gone to the coffee shop” right in the middle of the procedure, which prevented them from being able to take the reins once it became clear that Pettitt’s life was at risk from the surgical robot going rogue. Pillay also stated that he had no idea that these overseers were planning on not staying throughout the entirety of the surgery.

“I had no idea of their timescale and that they were not staying for the duration,” he’s quoted as saying. “The proctors leaving was a crucial moment. The loss of that vital assistance was a major blow at a critical time.”
