DO WE REALLY WANT AN ARMY OF ROBOTICS HAVING THE SAME LACK OF HUMANITY AS OUR GLOBAL 1% BEING SUPERVISORS, POLICE AND SECURITY, TEACHERS----
Laser technology and movement sensors are the greatest source of robotic variety. Then we have artificial intelligence allowing robots to appear to think critically in decision-making and advancing into verbal speech. CITIZEN SOPHIA we shared is that most advanced humanoid programmed by mega-computers shifting through trillions of data sets of 99% WE THE PEOPLE'S conversations on cell phones, social media, and texting/twitter. SOPHIA speaks, but she is simply processing language data-sets tied to specific interactions.
Robotics vs Artificial Intelligence: The Difference Explained
posted by John Spacey, April 18, 2016
Robots are autonomous or semi-autonomous machines meaning that they can act independently of external commands. Artificial intelligence is software that learns and self-improves.In some cases, robots make use of artificial intelligence to improve their autonomous functions by learning. However it is also common for robots to be designed with no capability to self-improve.The combination of robots and artificial intelligence is a significant area of research. Many of the things that robots commonly need to do such as process visual information is best solved with self-learning software. Robot enthusiasts also may envision a superintelligence that takes a physical form.Robots with artificial intelligence are potentially an existential risk due to their physical nature and ability to change and rapidly improve without human direction or control.

Here we see the robotics without artificial intelligence responding to commands, sensors, hardware filled with task descriptions and lists of actions. These are those robots we are told are heading to our retail stores-----the WalMarts and Sam's Club/Costco that are capable of doing inventory, stacking products on shelves, selecting items for sales, and even cleaning floors, shelves, and products in warehouse. These are the same robotics taking grocery store, fast-food restaurants, banking positions where they simply say CAN I HELP YOU and you press all the services you need----even the robotics behind SMART TECHNOLOGIES as with self-driving vehicles are those same kinds of electrical transmissions to activate set programming hardware.
When our delightful lying, cheating, stealing ROBBER BARON pols and 5% players keep pretending JOBS, JOBS, JOBS----BETTER JOBS ---PROFESSIONAL JOBS are coming---Amazon states 50,000 jobs tied to its global corporate campuses what they are not telling 99% WE THE PEOPLE are the goals of even eliminating those front line robots. The global factories tied to building robots are a flash-in-the-pan job source as BIG BOX RETAIL----MALLS, BRICK AND MORTAR BANKING, FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS go away so too do all those kinds of robotics.
THINKING ABOUT THE BEST OF THE BEST IN THE WORLD OF ROBOTICS AS THE NEXT GLOBAL LABOR POOL WORKERS----JAPANESE 99% OF CITIZENS LEFT LARGELY UNEMPLOYED AS OUR US CITIZENS WILL BE THOSE FILLING AMAZON'S ROBOTICS FACTORIES AS A MAJORITY.
Robots : Different Types of Robots
Different types of robots include some that have sensors, some that can be programmed for certain tasks, climbing robots…
As Chinese foreign corporations are being installed in US Foreign Economic Zones tied to energy and assembly-line factory economies so too will Japanese foreign corporations come to US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES tied to Amazon in robotics for one bringing their 99% of Japanese citizens who have decades of living among robots.
We can be sure IF 50,000 jobs are created at first in these AMAZON robotics factories they will be global labor pool 99% and those jobs will not last long.
Japanese bank introduces robot workers to deal with customers in branches

Japan’s biggest bank is preparing to unveil robot employees with a human touch.
Nao, a 58-centimetre (1ft 11)-tall humanoid developed by the French company Aldebaran Robotics – a subsidiary of the Japanese telecoms and internet giant SoftBank - will begin work on a trial basis at one or two branches of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group from April.
Depending on his performance, more robots could appear at other branches in the coming months.
Equipped with a camera on his forehead, Nao is programmed to speak 19 languages. He analyses customers’ emotions from their facial expressions and tone of voice, enabling him to greet customers and ask which services they need.
The 5.4-kg robot, who was “born” in Paris in 2006, lived up to his billing with a faultless interaction with an English-speaking customer, during a presentation in Tokyo this week.
“Hello and welcome,” Nao said. “I can tell you about money exchange, ATMs, opening a bank account, or overseas remittance. Which one would you like?”
Mitsubishi UFJ is one of several Japanese firms that are investing in “non-human resources” amid calls by the prime minister, Shinzo Abe, for the country to embark on a “robot revolution” to counter the country’s shrinking workforce and boost growth.
Nestle Japan has announced plans to employ Pepper, another Aldebaran-SoftBank “emotional” robot, to sell its coffee machines at up to 1,000 outlets by the end of this year.
The 120-centimetre-tall android already works as a shop assistant at SoftBank mobile phone outlets in Tokyo – a move its chief executive, Masayoshi Son, described as a “baby step on our dream to make a robot that can understand a person’s feelings, and then autonomously take action”.
Last month, the operator of Huis Ten Bosch theme park in Nagasaki said its two-storey Henn na (strange) Hotel would be run almost entirely by robots, from its porters to room cleaners and front desk staff, when it opens this summer.
Guests at the futuristic hotel will be given the option of using facial recognition technology to open the door to their room instead of a key. About 10 human employees will work alongside their robotic colleagues.
After ironing out one or two minor glitches, Mitsubishi UFJ believes Nao will be able to handle even the trickiest of customers, and should be in full customer-service flow by the time Tokyo experiences an influx of overseas visitors during the 2020 Olympics.
“Robots can supplement services by performing tasks that our human workers can’t, such as 24-hour banking and multilingual communication,” Takuma Nomoto, chief manager of information technology initiatives at the bank, said at the presentation, according to Bloomberg.
“Nao is cute and friendly, and I believe our customers will like it.”
Here we see how Japanese 99% were sent to South America these few decades as Latin American 99% were sent to Japan. The WE DON'T NEED YOU ANYMORE is not about Japanese being rehired---it is about robotics making labor fully automated

Brazilian workers of Japanese descent stage a protest against layoffs in central Tokyo on Jan. 18, 2009
When union leader Francisco Freitas has something to say, Japan's Brazilian community listens. The 49-year old director of the Japan Metal and Information Machinery Workers called up the Brazilian Embassy in Tokyo April 14, fuming over a form being passed out at employment offices in Hamamatsu City, southwest of Tokyo. Double-sided and printed on large sheets of paper, the form enables unemployed workers of Japanese descent — and their family members — to secure government money for tickets home. It sounded like a good deal to the Brazilians for whom it was intended. The fine print in Portuguese, however, revealed a catch that soured the deal: it's a one-way ticket with an agreement not to return.
BAltimore's 99% of students are being told to go into farming and ranching as well as SMART CITIES development has MOVED FORWARD faster in Japan. So, rising unemployment by displaced workers will not be seen in employment stats----population stats as global banking moves away from our developed nation system of labor oversight and accountability with no more LABOR RIGHTS needing stats.
Solution to Japan's Jobless Problem: Send City Workers Back to the Land
Updated April 15, 2009 12:01 a.m. ET Wall Street Journal
MASUTOMI, Japan -- Kenji Oshima lost his job in February at a seat-belt factory. So he applied for a highly competitive job-training program in an area he felt had more potential: farming.
The 35-year-old, dressed in his old factory uniform, spent a recent morning in a remote village three hours from Tokyo. He was digging an irrigation ditch around a rice paddy, contemplating which tool was more effective, a hoe or a shovel.
"I know it's a hard life" compared with his former job as a bookkeeper, Mr. Oshima said. "But I want to become a farmer and use my own hands to do everything, from sowing seeds to shipping boxes." He hopes to soon rent land nearby to start farming full time.

As the global financial crisis sinks Japan into its worst recession since World War II and hundreds of thousands of jobs are slashed in factories and offices, farming has emerged as a promising new career track. "Agriculture Will Save Japan," blared a headline for a business weekly magazine. Farmer's Kitchen, a popular new Tokyo restaurant, plasters its walls with posters of hunky farmers who supply the eatery with organic vegetables.
Seeing agriculture as one of the few industries that could generate jobs right now, the government has earmarked $10 million to send 900 people to job-training programs in farming, forestry and fishing. Japan's unemployment rate was 4.4% in February, up from 3.9% a year earlier, but still lower than the U.S. or Europe. Some economists expect the figure to rise to a record 8% or so within the next couple of years.
Policy makers are hoping newly unemployed young people will help revive Japan's dwindling farming population, where two in three full-time farmers are 65 or older. Of Japan's total population, 6% work in agriculture, most doing so only part time, down from about 20% three decades ago.
"If they can't find young workers over the next several years, Japan's agriculture will disappear," said Kazumasa Iwata, a government economist and former deputy governor of the Bank of Japan.
Mr. Oshima and eight other young prospects, including a software engineer and a former teacher, snared spots in a 10-day state-funded program after beating out 110 other applicants and writing passionate essays about their interest in farming.
Conventional robotics has become mainstream and technology advancement takes this ordinary robotics from workplace to being toys and games. We have not seen the replacement of workers here in US as overseas especially in Japan because all global factories were in overseas FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES. That is what MOVING FORWARD US CITIES DEEMED FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES will do these next few decades. Amazon will indeed bring global labor pool to fill global robotics factories and use those robots in its warehouse retail and drone delivery as well as the manufacturing of military and policing drones.
What MOVING FORWARD for global robotic technology entails is AUTONOMOUS humanoid robotics and this is where CITIZEN SOPHIA makes that world bank economic splash.
'This new breed of robots with ‘brains’ will develop human skills that will allow them to manipulate an environment as desired, according to Baldassarre'.
Italian technology scientists were no doubt behind CITIZEN SOPHIA.
We see here how primitive these artificial intelligence humanoid robotics are so looking at a CITIZEN SOPHIA standing at a podium telling us she wants to help the world and smiling-----FAR FROM BEING ABLE TO OPERATE INDEPENDENTLY which is the goal for MOVING FORWARD robotics.
We are nowhere near the technology in robotics to having automated thinking and reasoning supervisor/teaching robotics. If global Wall Street far-right wing CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA want to eliminate employment categories for professional 99% of WE THE PEOPLE it will be with global 2%----not robotics.
Autonomous AI: New robots will learn as children do & set own goals
Published time: 8 Nov, 2016 02:19

A new generation of self determining robots able to set their own goals and experiment and mimic the human learning process are under development as part of an EU-funded project led by Italian scientists.The GOAL (Goal-based Open-ended Autonomous Learning) robots will learn and develop skills from scratch as children do and will go on to ’self-generate’ goals.
More than 3.4 million euros ($3.75mn) has been allocated by the EU under the FET Open research projects initiative for the development of the bots which launched this month. It is expected to have been completed by 2020.
The programme is being led by the Laboratory of Computational Embodied Neuroscience (LOCEN), an Italian research group based in Rome at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the Italian National Research Council (ISTC-CNR). GOAL is also supported by three research groups, two from Germany and one from France.
“The goal is to make robots that are able to learn independently, experimenting and making experiences exactly like young children, between one and two years old, and then apply their new acquired skills,” project coordinator, Gianluca Baldassarre, from the ISTC-CN said.
The independent thinkers will decide on their own goals and will not be influenced by the research team but by their own experiences and curiosity. It’s intended this way of development will allow robots to complete tasks that are currently out of their reach such as tidying a room.
This new breed of robots with ‘brains’ will develop human skills that will allow them to manipulate an environment as desired, according to Baldassarre.
“Future robots, instead, should be able to learn how to truly “master” their environments autonomously...This will allow them, with little additional learning, to change an environment from its current state to a wide range of potential goal states desired by the user,” he said.
The final test for the AI will be to observe a scene of several objects located in containers and shelves on a working plane and to reproduce that exact scenario after the objects are mixed up.
GOAL-Robots follows a previous European project, IM-CLeVeR (“Intrinsically Motivated Cumulative Learning Versatile Robots, where LOCEN and its former project partners investigated the role of intrinsic motivations (IMs) in fostering autonomous learning both in biological agents and robots.
All of those hundreds of billions of dollars that used to flow from our US Federal education agencies to grow and nurture intelligence and life-long learning in actual HUMANS is now doing the reverse----it is being spent programming humanoid robotics to be autonomous thinkers while 99% of WE THE PEOPLE are being told----NO SCHOOL FOR YOU.
The global 1% are pushed towards these goals of autonomy due to the drive to get rid of those 5% TO THE 1% Robber Baron pols and players but as well robots are front-and-center in SPACE X Elon Musk planetary mining and colonization. Sending anything to these asteroids/moons et al will require NON-LIVING before LIVING.
Is this good or bad for 99% of WE THE PEOPLE? The joke of having a ROBOT OVERLORD is indeed very, very, very bad and it is the goal of MOVING FORWARD intelligent humanoids.
Who are those citizens locked away in research laboratories tied to artificial intelligence development that totally disregard how these goals effect billions of people and feel fine with eliminating those same billions of people from modern levels of education? The global 1% and their 2% ----SPOCK NIHILISM.
When international finance media let's us know 99% of citizens will not even be included in any economic development and transaction-----it is not only the push out of stocks investments-----being paid actual cash for disposable income----these global 1% expect to take 99% completely out of this loop of education ----we will have no idea what is going on or what advances are being deployed---as professional 99% white collar workers will not be inside this DOME OF RESEARCH AND ECONOMY.
This is what is making that insider loop these few decades get tighter and tighter being more and more nepotistic-----

IM-CLeVeR: Towards Intelligent Humanoids
Published 31 August 2015
Updated 31 August 2015
This EU funded project came up with new ways through which robots can autonomously acquire an increasingly large amount of knowledge and skills
This is a guest blog post written by Gianluca Baldassarre, IM-CLeVeR project coordinator
The EU funded project IM-CLeVeR (Intrinsically Motivated Cumulative Learning Versatile Robots: FP7-ICT-IP-231722) finished a year ago but its impact on fundamental research on intrinsic motivations in autonomous robotics, machine learning, psychology and neuroscience is still relevant. IM-CLeVeR aimed to develop a new methodology for designing robot controllers that can: (1) cumulatively learn new skills through autonomous development based on intrinsic motivations, and (2) reuse such skills for accomplishing multiple, complex, and externally-assigned tasks. During skill-acquisition, the robots behave like children at play which acquire skills autonomously on the basis of “intrinsic motivations”. During skill-exploitation, the robots exhibit fast learning capabilities and a high versatility in solving tasks defined by external users due to their capacity of flexibly re-using, composing, and readapting previously acquired skills.
Intrinsic motivations (IMs) have a fundamental importance for animal and human learning and a great potential for technology. What we learn is strongly due to IMs that drive exploration, play, life-long learning, creativity and, in their highest expression, art and science. Our well-being is also strongly affected by IMs as they are linked to our sense of competence, self-determination, and self-esteem. IMs make animals and people do things out of interest or curiosity. For example, IMs drive children to play and learn from experience rather than just do something for survival or because of external carrots (''extrinsic motivations'') such as punishments, rewards, or praise from others.
In the last decade, IMs have also been introduced in machine learning and autonomous robotics as a means for developing artiﬁcial systems that can autonomously learn several diﬀerent skills in an open-ended, cumulative fashion. The idea is that intelligent machines and robots can autonomously acquire skills and knowledge under the guidance of IMs, and later exploit them to accomplish the tasks that are useful for the user. This possibility would especially enhance the utility of intelligent artiﬁcial systems when operating in real-life environments posing challenges that cannot be foreseen at design time.
The IM-CLeVeR consortium consisted of 7 European universities and research centres led by the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the Italian National Research Council (ISTC-CNR) located in Rome. The project work, carried out over a four year period, resulted in a collection of scientific papers some of which are linked below.
Although the possible functions and mechanisms of IMs are still debated and seen differently by the different research communities involved, and although the recognition of IMs as a research field per se is only partially accomplished, their link with some of the most sophisticated aspects of human cognition (curiosity, art, science, well-being), and their potential for applications make them an interesting and important research field deserving additional research efforts.
ANDROID technology was last few decade growth industry and that is because artificial intelligence needs that remote internet infrastructure and hardware ----they tied it to our SMART PHONES-----OBAMA TOUTED SMART PHONE USE----TRUMP TOUTS TWEETING/TEXTING----all tied to developing artificial intelligence robots. Below we see that CITIZEN SOPHIA is that ANDROID ROBOT---made to look extremely life-like they are even using real human tissue as skin on surface of these android robots.
ANDROID is a technology word tied to our cell phones was created to install infrastructure, hardware, and software needed for ANDROID ROBOTS----not for our entertainment. All that marketing around SMART PHONES/ANDROID TECHNOLOGY has WE THE PEOPLE the 99% lining up for blocks when the goals of these technologies take all of global citizens OUT OF WORKPLACE.
So, Android phones created all the interactive elements robots need to do their jobs.
Android (robot)From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An android is a humanoid robot or synthetic organism designed to look and act like a human, especially one with a body having a flesh-like resemblance. Historically, androids remained completely within the domain of science fiction where they are frequently seen in film and television. Only recently have advancements in robot technology allowed the design of functional and realistic humanoid robots
Now the global monopoly more powerful than a BLACKWATER in controlling all that is ONE WORLD ONE ENERGY/TECHNOLOGY grid moves into the robotics market with ANDROID technology. Many people don't care that these technologies and industries MOVE FORWARD---SCIENCE FOR SCIENCE sake. It is critical in PUBLIC POLICY to understand how all this affects society and citizens and to understand GOALS of global 1% in advancing these technologies.

Why Does Google Need So Many Robots?
To Jump From The Web To The Real World
Posted Dec 14, 2013 by John Biggs (@johnbiggs)
iOS Rules The Corporate Mobile Market As Android And Windows Scrap For Second Place
Why does Google need robots?
Because it already rules your pocket. The mobile market, except for the slow rise of wearables, is saturated. There are millions of handsets around the world, each one connected to the Internet and most are running either Android or iOS. Except for incremental updates to the form, there will be few innovations coming out of the mobile space in the next decade.
Then there’s Glass.
These devices bring the web to the real world by making us the carriers. Google is already in front of us on our small screens but Glass makes us a captive audience. By depending on Google’s data for our daily interactions, mapping, and restaurant recommendations – not to mention the digitization of our every move – we become some of the best Google consumers in history. But that’s still not enough.
Google is limited by, for lack of a better word, meat. We are poor explorers and poor data gatherers. We tend to follow the same paths every day and, like ants, we rarely stray far from the nest. Google is a data company and needs far more data than humans alone can gather. Robots, then will be the driver for a number of impressive feats in the next few decades including space exploration, improved mapping techniques, and massive changes in the manufacturing workspace.
Robots like Baxter will replace millions of expensive humans – a move that I suspect will instigate a problematic rise of unemployment in the manufacturing sector – and companies like manufacturing giant Foxconn are investing in robotics at a clip. Drones, whether human-control or autonomous, are a true extension of our senses, placing us and keeping us apprised of situations far from home base. Home helpers will soon lift us out of bed when we’re sick, help us clean, and assist us near the end of our lives. Smaller hardware projects will help us lose weight and patrol our streets. The tech company not invested in robotics today will find itself far behind the curve in the coming decade.
That’s why Google needs robots.
They will place the company at the forefront of man-machine interaction in the same way that Android put them in front of millions of eyeballs. Many pundits saw no reason for Google to start a mobile arm back when Android was still young. They were wrong. The same will be the case for these seemingly wonky experiments in robotics.
Did Google buy Boston Dynamics and seven other robotics companies so it could run a thousand quadrupedal Big Dogs through our cities? No, but I could see them using BD’s PETMAN, a bipedal robot that can walk and run over rough terrain – to assist in mapping difficult-to-reach areas. It could also become a sort of Google Now for the real world, appearing at our elbows in the form of an assistant that follows us throughout the day, keeping us on track, helping with tasks, and becoming our avatars when we can’t be in two places at once. The more Google can mediate our day-to-day experience the more valuable it becomes.
Need more proof? Follow the money. Robotics is big business and analysts estimate that Boston Dynamics could be a $5 billion company in the next few years. With the right contracts and the right product mix, almost any of member Google’s current robot horde can hit nearly any market, from consumer robotics on a large scale to massive installations in manufacturing – not to mention those lucrative DARPA contracts.
Will we see RoboGooglers wandering through Palo Alto this year? No way. It’s far too early. But with a bit of smarts from Google Chauffeur, the software running the company’s self-driving cars, and some better bipedal robot designs I could see Sergey and Larry standing beside their robotic assistants within the decade. Now all they have to do is make them sentient.
When we hear global hedge fund IVY LEAGUE universities tell those BEST OF THE BEST students---well not really----there is NO BAD IDEA they are simply getting our students to create thought processes tied to critical thinking. As we see below the idea of powering objects by THINKING AT THEM is a short trip to AL THE ROBOT.
HOPKINS MICA has advanced ARTS and SCIENCE tied to visualizing every contingency in how materials will react to different space environments. Meanwhile, everything having to do with society and our quality of life is disappearing.
BUILDING A PROFILE OF BRAIN WAVES FOR AL.
'As with many other such advancements, this doesn’t sound like a case of a machine actually “thinking” as such. It’s more a case of building up a profile of the brain waves of humans while conducting a particular activity and having the AI duplicate it'.
No one will be harmed more than that global 2% and those families of genius and nerds----they will not be in those global 1% so we wonder WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU WORKING ON ALL THIS RESEARCH knowing goals? Our creative minds are being hijacked to what always happens in FAR-RIGHT WING, AUTHORITARIAN, MILITARISTIC, EXTREME WEALTH AND EXTREME POVERTY====LET'S STOP MOVING FORWARD.
'We’ve seen working models of powered wheelchairs which people can operate with their minds as well as artificial limbs which be controlled just by “thinking at them” or exoskeletal braces which allow paralyzed people to do the same thing. Combining that technology with AI and robots could only be a short trip around the block from there'.
How many global citizens will see the benefit of expensive health technology such as thinking artificial legs to move? We know those needing it want this these advancements ----meanwhile $2 trillion in Medicare Trust is cut as is all of Medicaid-----
We recently read declassified documents from REAGAN era that stated all that money spent on nuclear arms race between US and RUSSIA was simply a ploy to send money to these space and SMART CITY technology infrastructure-----there never was a hostile arms race between Russia and US......and indeed we are sure as with RUSSIA AND US ELECTIONS----this article paints a race for ANDROID ROBOT SOLDIERS is more of the same.
Human brain waves being used to teach robots… how to shoot
Jazz ShawPosted at 7:01 pm on May 6, 2017 HOT AIR
Here’s your weekend reminder of the brave new world to come just in case you were finding it too easy to get to sleep at night. You might recall a couple of weeks back when we learned that the Russians now have honest to goodness bipedal robots utilizing Artificial Intelligence which are learning how to shoot guns. (Their creators assure us that it’s nothing like Terminator, even though it looks exactly like Terminator.) We don’t have to worry too much yet because identifying targets correctly in the complex, chaotic landscape of the real world is still a task which is too difficult for your average computer algorithm. But that firewall of security may be collapsing quickly. Government Executive reports that our own military – never ones to be outdone by the Russians – is upping their game. They’re teaching robots with human brain waves, so Sarah Connor probably shouldn’t be resting any easier than she was before.
Humans still outperform armed robots in knowing what to shoot at — but new research funded in part by the Army may soon narrow that gap.
Researchers from DCS Corp and the Army Research Lab fed datasets of human brain waves into a neural network — a type of artificial intelligence — which learned to recognize when a human is making a targeting decision. They presented their paper on it at the annual Intelligent User Interface conference in Cyprus in March.
Why is this a big deal?
Machine learning relies on highly structured data, numbers in rows that software can read. But identifying a target in the chaotic real world is incredibly difficult for computers. The human brain does it easily, structuring data in the form of memories, but not in a language machines can understand. It’s a problem that the military has been grappling with for years.
As with many other such advancements, this doesn’t sound like a case of a machine actually “thinking” as such. It’s more a case of building up a profile of the brain waves of humans while conducting a particular activity and having the AI duplicate it. The operations of the human brain still remain something of a mystery at the deeper levels, but we’ve been able to replicate a number of those processes ourselves already. We’ve seen working models of powered wheelchairs which people can operate with their minds as well as artificial limbs which be controlled just by “thinking at them” or exoskeletal braces which allow paralyzed people to do the same thing. Combining that technology with AI and robots could only be a short trip around the block from there.
In the meantime, just in case the terrifying future isn’t flying at you quickly enough, we’ll close out this evening with a video. Courtesy of Boston Dynamics, here’s who will be coming to visit you if you get behind on paying your taxes before too long. It’s… PETMAN! Just picture this guy with a Glock in each fist. Oh, and… sleep tight.
Now, if one believes the US Russia nuclear arms race was never hostile -----it was moving forward these technologies needed for space and internet-----then we can look at the kinds of robotic equipment seen in this video and we see what will be needed on planetary exploration/mining AND we see what will be used in ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE Blackwater global mercenary policing----oh, yeah those ROBOT SOLDIERS will have their eyes trained on 99% OF WE THE PEOPLE.
BUILDING TO FAIL USING WAR TO TEST TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN HAPPENING THESE FEW DECADES.
What would US do if Russia sent a ship load of robotic soldiers to attack the US? We would drop a bomb on that transport ship for goodness sake.
Thinking about escaping from a Foreign Economic Zone/ That robot able to see for miles ------replaces that Berlin Wall with armed guards shooting anyone trying to leave.

The future of combat might not involve humans, but robots! The United States Army is considering lowering brigades from 4,000 soldiers to around 3,000 soldiers, replacing these men and women with robots and other unmanned vehicles. This is not a new idea, as the army already utilizes drones, and countries like South Korea use robot guards to patrol their border with North Korea.
