Nanobots will live in our brains in the 2030s, says Google boss

Web Log: Engineering director Ray Kurzweil predicts what future holds for AI and humans

Thu, Oct 19, 2017, 07:35 Marie Boran Ray Kurzweil’s prediction rate has been rated 86 per cent accurate to date

Ray Kurzweil’s prediction rate has been rated 86 per cent accurate to date

Ray Kurzweil is director of engineering at Google but he is better known for writing best-selling books outlining the future of artificial intelligence.

He has made 147 predictions on the future of technology including the ubiquity of wearable devices and the move from desktops and laptops to smartphones and tablets. In fact, his prediction rate has been rated 86 per cent accurate.

With this in mind, fans were excited to see Kurzweil answer their questions in a live streaming interview session last week where he elaborated on his predictions.

Computer vision

Kurzweil thinks true AI will arrive when narrow fields within machine learning, computer vision and so on get broader and broader until there “won’t really be any difference between AI and natural [human] intelligence”.

“It is not an alien invasion of AI from Mars; we’re going to make ourselves smarter by merging with it,” he added. This merging will happen using nanobots, he predicts.

“In the 2030s we are going to send nanorobots into the brain that will provide full immersion virtual reality from within the nervous system and will connect our neocortex to the cloud. Just like how we can wirelessly expand the power of our smartphones 10,000-fold in the cloud today, we’ll be able to expand our neocortex.”

NZ Police are piloting a swarm of new, hi-tech tools. We deserve to know more about them

There are many unanswered questions about how technologies are being used, why they are necessary, and whether they risk infringing on human rights or privacy, write Andrew Chen and Kristiann Allen.

The idea of “emergence”, in a philosophical sense, is the notion that a system can have properties, behaviours and naturally forming rules or patterns that individual parts of the system do not have by themselves – the interactions between the components create something new. Snowflakes demonstrate this phenomenon, where individual ice crystals form and grow as they circulate in the air, leading to unpredictable but complex patterns. This perspective considers how seemingly independent parts of a system co-evolve.

Earlier this month, RNZ reported on New Zealand Police’s Review of Emergent Technologies. It included a stocktake of technologies “tested, trialled or rolled out” by NZ Police, from locating where 111 calls are coming from to facial recognition technology for finding people in CCTV footage. In total, 20 technologies were identified with a further nine “under consideration”. The review was urgently commissioned after the police commissioner was caught unaware that the High Tech Crime Unit had trialled the controversial Clearview AI product – understandably, he wanted to know if there were any other unknown surprises on the horizon.

Directed Energy Weapons (DEW)

DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS (DEW)

Prof. Nigel Gray 28 Oct. 2020 Over the last several years I have been accused many times of posting controversial stuff and regularly called a conspiracy theorist. These people do not know the world they are living in, nor the advances in technology that are being often withheld from public scrutiny. My reason for posting is not to fear-monger but to keep public awareness in line with developments. I think otherwise we will fall so far behind that the division between those that know and those that do not will in itself create some extreme social problems, to put it mildly.

DEW IS NOW, (AS OF 2019) A $13.86 BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY

Not only is DEW currently a multi-billion dollar industry at $13.86 billion (2019) but it is forecast to reach $93.2 billion by 2027 by market analysts, with a compound annual growth rate of 26.8%. “The market is remarkably being driven by the factors such as increasing adoption of the directed energy weapons to destroy or damage the rockets, drones, mortar-launched explosives and any other aerial threats, higher investment in the military bodies & defense intelligence sectors, and technological development in the laser-based target focused weapons. Additionally, growing incidences in the cross-border conflicts, asymmetry in the warfare, higher inclination for the forthcoming combat preparation, and broadening the number of the existing weaponry technology & updating them into the futuristic ones are some of the subordinate reasons behind the tremendous growth of the market. The laser-based DEW anti-drone system or drone destroyers are expected to create a huge enforcement into the market as more and more countries are deliberately developing & investing in the high-power laser-directed energy system to use against drones or UAVs. The global market landscape of Directed Energy Weapons (DEW) is expected to remain in a very competitive and highly consolidated landscape consisting of a number of both the small start-ups, medium enterprises, and large conglomerates. During the projected era, increasing demand for technological development and higher diversification in offered products ensure the enormous potential for the innovative players.”

  • In June 2020, Applied Technology Associates (ATA) revealed a contract for developing a target acquisition & tracking platform for the installation on a Stryker military ground vehicle being a part of U.S. Army initiative in order to increase the protection of the soldiers using laser weapon systems.
  • The defense exhibits a higher count of usage and investment in the ongoing research & development of directed energy weapons (DEW). The growing interest in countering the weaponry actions & drones or UAV information carriers sent from the rivals are broadening the market outreach. The Defense sub-segment in the application segment had 78.6% market share in the year 2019.
  • North America owing to its leading investment in the defense & homeland security budgets, especially in the United States, and higher development in the information technology & microelectronics industry, is expected to fuel regional market growth substantially.
  • Key players in the market The Raytheon Company, The Boeing Company, BAE Systems, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Lockheed Martin, L-3 Communications Ltd, Moog Inc, Thales Group, Saab AB, and Israel Aerospace Industries, among others.

Wireless Industry Confesses: “No Studies Show 5G is Safe”

From takebackyourpower.net

In 2019 Senator Richard Blumenthal grilled wireless industry representatives, who admitted the industry has done ZERO health & safety studies on 5G technology. Meanwhile, dozens of independent studies indicates that 5G is a risk to all biological life. Watch the video below.

[WASHINGTON, DC]— During today’s Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee hearing on the future of 5G wireless technology and their impact on the American people and economy, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) raised concerns with the lack of any scientific research and data on the technology’s potential health risks.

Blumenthal blasted the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)—government agencies jointly-responsible for ensuring that cellphone technologies are safe to use—for failing to conduct any research into the safety of 5G technology, and instead, engaging in bureaucratic finger-pointing and deferring to industry.

In December 2018, Blumenthal and U.S. Representative Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) sent a letter to FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr seeking answers regarding potential health risks posed by new 5G wireless technology. At today’s hearing, Blumenthal criticized Carr for failing to provide answers, and instead, just echoing, “the general statements of the FDA, which shares regulatory responsibility for cell phones with the FCC.”  Blumenthal also decried the FDA’s statements as “pretty unsatisfactory.”  A PDF of Carr’s complete response is available here.

“The dangers of electromagnetic fields are real–and now a renowned health authority reveals exactly what they are and how you can protect yourself.

The hazards of electronic pollution may once have been the stuff of science fiction, but now we know they’re all too real. And with the advent of 5G ultra-wideband technology, the danger is greater than ever.
Dr. Joseph Mercola, one of the world’s foremost authorities on alternative health, has mined the scientific literature to offer a radical new understanding of how electromagnetic fields impact your body and mind. In this first-of-its-kind guide, he reveals:
  What EMFs (electromagnetic fields) actually are, where you find them in your daily life, and how they affect you
  The toll that EMFs have been proven to take in conditions such as cancer, heart disease, and neuropsychiatric illnesses
  Why you’ve been largely kept in the dark about this threat to your health
  How you can actually repair the damage done by EMFs at a cellular level
  Practical strategies to protect yourself and your loved ones from EMFs at home, at work, and out in the world

The coming 5G technology will be pervasive and powerful. It will also be one of the largest public-health experiments in history-with no way of opting out. That’s why you need to read this book. Now.” SOURCE (Amazon)

Everything is the Light – An Interview with Nikola Tesla. Narrated By: Gary Lite Read the full article here: http://www.369universe.com/2017/02/09… My understanding is that this story is from a play, but if you listen carefully you will find gems of information! Part of this interview is dedicated to Tesla’s critics on Einstein’s theory of relativity that discards the ether as energy. I have proved in the new Theory of the Universal Law why Einstein’s theory of relativity is entirely wrong and why there is no vacuum (void), and that everything is energy. Thus I confirm Tesla’s ideas as expressed in this interview. Universal Truth – http://www.369universe.com

An expert in weapons systems Mark Steele speaks on 5G

From https://lotusfeet22.blogspot.com

Mark Steele from Gateshead in Newcastle, Mark’s background is an expert in weapon systems, an inventor of weapon systems. Mark shares that 5G in the UK leads back to China, Chinese war weapon technology being installed in the UK. He says that Lloyd Brokers won’t even insure 5G or “Smart Meters”. WiFi is also uninsurable, and Israel won’t allow WiFi in schools in Israel due to the damage this technology can cause.

In this presentation Mark shares that 5G is “illegal”, and does not submit to any international standards. In it he describes all of the health issues in Gateshead associated with 5G technology.

The Stingray: How Law Enforcement can Track You

Published on Aug 29, 2017

RALEIGH, North Carolina (WTVD) — You could be just about anywhere and data on your cell phone can be scooped up by law enforcement without your ever knowing. It happens all the time. The device that makes it possible is called a “cell site simulator.” That’s the generic name; Stingray is the most common brand name. Initially developed for military use, Stingrays have made their way into local police and sheriff’s departments around the country. Months ago, the I-Team sent open records requests to every law enforcement agency in our viewing area and learned that three agencies close to home have been using cell site simulators: the Wake County Sheriff’s Department, Durham Police Department, and Raleigh Police Department. A spokesperson for RPD told the I-Team they stopped using theirs when the software needed to be upgraded. The ACLU’s Mike Meno has been watching Stingrays spread into local law enforcement for years. “Like a lot of militarized technology and surveillance technology, this is something that was developed overseas and it was developed for one use, but then it comes back home and is used against our own citizens. It’s used here in the States. And the government will say, ‘We need to keep this confidential,’ but we have constitutional rights. We’re supposed to have checks and balances,” he said. http://abc11.com/1968769/

Top 20 Facts On 5G: What You Need To Know About 5G Wireless And “Small” Cells

20 Facts About 5G

Download a PDF of this information on a two page  EHT Factsheet on 5G and Health. The factsheet is hyperlinked (blue text) to research and sources. It is a great resource for policymakers.

Nationwide, communities are being told by wireless companies that it is necessary to build “small cell” wireless facilities in neighborhoods ons street lights and utility poles in order to offer 5G, a new technology that will connect the Internet of Things (IoT). At the local, state, and federal level, new legislation and new zoning aim to streamline the installation of these 5G “small cell” antennas in public rights-of-way.

1. 5G “small cell antennas are to be placed in neighborhoods everywhere. 

  • Street lights
  • Trashcans
  • Utility poles
  • Bus stops
  • Sides of buildings

2. The radiation from small cells is not small.

Wireless antennas emit microwaves — non-ionizing radiofrequency radiation — and essentially function as cell towers. Each installation can have over a thousand antennas that are transmitting simultaneously. Examples of how small cells are not small include:  

  • They increase electromagnetic radiation near homes.
  • They have refrigerator-sized (and larger) equipment cabinets.
  • Property values drop after a cell tower is built near homes.
  • Taller and wider poles are needed for the antennas.
  • Fixtures weigh hundreds of pounds.
NO. Small cell installations are not the size of pizza boxes.
Each installation has antennas on the top and electronics cabinets  at the bottom. The electronics are housed in metal boxes – called “street furniture” by industry to make it sound warm and cozy. These cabinets  can be larger than a refrigerator, so large people could fit into them. In addition, there will be various radio units, a smart meter, and potentially unseemly wires.

What you aren’t being told about wireless and the inherent risks to your health, from a Silicon Valley engineer

Published on Feb 18, 2016

A Silicon-valley engineer turned technology health advocate, Jeromy Johnson discusses our attachment to technology and the health hazards such an addiction may hold. [AV and event video provided by http://repertoireproductions.com]. Jeromy Johnson is an expert in mitigating the negative impacts of Electromagnetic Field (EMF) exposure. He has a leading website on the topic and consults with individuals, families and organizations around the world to implement solutions that reduce and eliminate EMF pollution. Jeromy has an advanced degree in Civil Engineering and has worked in Silicon Valley for 15 years. After becoming what medical doctors call “Electro-hypersensitive” (EHS) in 2011 after extensive exposure to EMF radiation, he embarked on a journey of regaining his own health and educating others to critically evaluate theirs. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Six year study proves wireless kills trees?

From healthfreedomidaho.org

Wireless Kills Trees. A six-year study of trees around wireless cell towers reveals the ‘invisible’ damage of exposure to RF radiation. Radiation from wireless technology is now jeopardizing the health of our trees and other plants. “Tree damage in the vicinity of mobile phone base stations” by Waldmann-Selsam and Egar in 2013, documented suspected RF radiation related tree damage and RF radiation readings over a period of six years.
It found significantly higher RF radiation readings by damaged trees as compared to undamaged trees. Sometimes damaged areas and undamaged areas were on the same tree, in which case RF radiation levels were found to be higher near the damaged areas. Because trees are unable to move, differences in RF radiation levels from fixed sources like cell towers can result in very different RF radiation exposure micro-environments in different parts of the same tree or bush.

CIA Director Admits They’re Spraying Us With Stratospheric Aerosol Injection Chemtrails – take Note Kiwis

Thanks to Fiona at thecontrail.com for this link.

CIA Director Brennan Admits They Are Using Geoengineering around the globe. He admits they are spraying aerosol particles in the atmosphere to allegedly reflect sun light. He then finishes by stating that this technology could cause countries to rise up and oppose one another. This could be the first admission that they have a technology that can manipulate the weather, and even use it as a weapon. He states using the technology could bring good change to some ares, but do the opposite to other countries. Meaning it could devastate certain areas! Pay Attention Folks!

When I first heard of this phenomenon five years ago my immediate thought was, ‘it won’t be here in NZ’. How wrong I was. Please research this with an open mind, and in the context of what is happening to our nation politically at the moment.

New Tech Shows Why You Can’t Trust Anything You See on the News

Most people who’ve learned to question will know by now that what is called ‘mainstream media’ (I call it lamestream) can no longer be trusted to inform you of news facts in an unbiased and truthful manner. The ownership of the media for starters is now down to around six corporations, from many times that say ten years ago.

media-con

Remember, corporations don’t have your best interests at heart. What we see and hear is carefully funneled to us … selectively at that. What you don’t get to see, just as important as what you do, creating the desired perception of reality to suit. You may not have been aware but during recent TPPA protests throughout NZ, the Herald reported  a few hundred protesters, when in fact there were 25K+. Currently then your best shot at getting to the truth of all news is to visit truth sites on the internet. Your daily newspaper is just not going to do that for you. Unless of course you are only wanting data on last week’s dog trials and some gardening and culinary advice.

To complicate matters further, according to this video, you will see how what you learn is manipulated to an even more devious degree with even more refined technology that can artificially create the reporter’s body language for you … and more …

Why Steve Jobs Didn’t Let His Kids Use iPads (And Why You Shouldn’t Either)

An interesting and thought-provoking article here about Steve Jobs.
“In a Sunday article, New York Times reporter Nick Bilton said he once assumingly asked Jobs, “So your kids must love the iPad?”

Jobs responded:

“They haven’t used it. We limit how much technology our kids use at home.”

education-908512_1280Especially in Silicon Valley, there is actually a trend of tech execs and engineers who shield their kids from technology. They even send their kids to non-tech schools like the Waldorf School in Los Altos, where computers aren’t found anywhere because they only focus on hands-on learning.

There is a quote that was highlighted in The Times by Chris Anderson, CEO of 3D Robotics and a father of five. He explains what drives those who work in tech to keep it from their kids.

“My kids accuse me and my wife of being fascists and overly concerned about tech, and they say that none of their friends have the same rules… That’s because we have seen the dangers of technology firsthand. I’ve seen it in myself, I don’t want to see that happen to my kids.

If our current addictions to our iPhones and other tech is any indication, we may be setting up our children for incomplete, handicapped lives devoid of imagination, creativity and wonder when we hook them onto technology at an early age…”
