Welcome to America, 2030. Now we will bleed your mind:
The smart-drone, part of the greater Los Angeles Police Department’s SkySurv Squadron, picks up suspicious brainwaves from a subject driving on the city streets below.
The AI mind-reading algorithm kicks in and the drone rapidly identifies the subject as a potential criminal planning to rob a convenience store several blocks up the street.
Accessing its memory file, the SkySurv drone alerts the nearest ground-based patrol officers and turns its sensors upon the suspect’s body. In milliseconds it scans the suspect. And then the AI processes the terabyte data stream, rapidly confirming the suspect is armed with a gun.
Police cruisers screech up and detain the man before he has a chance to perpetrate the crime.
The scenario is not a fantasy. The DHS and urban police forces are waiting for the systems to be brought up to speed. Then they will deploy them, you can be damn sure of that.
Will the system be 100 percent accurate? Of course not. People detained, arrested, tossed in jail or killed are unfortunate collateral damage. The price of keeping America secure.
Operation Brain Drain:
Once the venerable U.S. Air Force set its sights on the wild blue yonder, now it wants to peer into brains.President Barack Obama has greenlighted the Pentagon project first dreamed up by geeks (DARPA) labs and now snapped up by eager Air Force generals.
Since the USAF has access to greater funding (including black project funds), DARPA handed it off to the flyboys. Now it’s full throttle ahead. Some worry that the emerging technology the faceless men at DARPA have tweaked together might inevitably lead to Terminator-like Skynet drone systems spying on American citizens.
Going far beyond the new face-recognition technology, the new brain-scanners will be mated with sky drones creating an unholy fusion of privacy-busting, omnipresent, stealth surveillance.
The project is dark, but not black, and actually appears on the Department of Defense Resource Center Selections projects page(ESPRIT: Schemas for Intent Recognition). It all seems quite innocent on the surface until a little digging and extrapolation uncover the disturbing specifications and technological architecture the mission is built upon. Reading the intent of an enemy or a criminal—in essence reading their minds—is a lofty goal. But as SoarTech explains, their goal is nothing less than to “design and implement a system for Explanation, Schemas, and Prediction for Recognition of Intent in the TAO (ESPRIT).
(Yeah, And gunpowder was originally intended for fireworks..we see how that turned out. Predictive program, and AI software are the next generation steps in implementing the control grid surveillance society. This type of technology will at first be implemented in Drones, robotics..etc. But it will not be long before the technology is used by humans on humans. giving those that have access to the technology superiority over the rest of us who don’t have it
