Tech Giant Kindred Should Scare You Silly

Best case scenario, they automate human labor out of existence; worst case scenario, they get us all killed.

Kindred, a rising tech giant, explicitly states that its mission is to create artificially intelligent robots who can perform every single human job better than the most intelligent and able humans can.

The founder Geordie Rose said as much to a crowd of coders recently.

In the bizarre video below, you can see the bizarre presentation for yourself. Rose states that with Kindred leading the charge, their mission will be achieved in as little as thirty years, if not sooner.

Then he compares the brave new world he’s designing to the Elder Ones in the H.P. Lovecraft mythos as well as an alien invasion.

In fact, he states that this future is inevitable for the human race. To paraphrase him, “Imagine a super intelligent alien race has called the president of the United States, and told him, ‘We’re coming in fifty years. On July 4th, 2030, we’re parking on the lawn of the White House. Deal with it.’

“Humanity would spend all of their time preparing for this moment,'” he concludes.

He says that these human-replacing robots will be look upon us with Lovecraftian cosmic indifference.

They won’t care about us.

They’ll view us as humans view ants.

Then, to paraphrase the horrifying man once more, he adds, “‘We must do everything in our power to make sure that we carry out this transition for humanity correctly, or we all die.'”

Please do not take my word for it! In fact, I beg you to just watch this twenty minute video so you understand what’s happening. Whether you like it or not.

Scared silly?

The Way of the Future Church Should Scare You Silly

Anthony Levandowski, the former Google and Uber executive, has officially registered his Artificial Intelligence worshiping religion with the IRS as a non-profit.

The Way of the Future is a Sci-Fi-loving curmudgeon nihilist’s wet dream. You can read their horrifying one-page website for yourself, but if you’ll humor me, I’m happy to paraphrase.

“The singularity is inevitable because tech turds like me say so, so we should make the transition to worshiping computers as gods as peaceful as possible.”

Even seven years ago, I remember having conversations with people who were mainstream normal in every way except for being doomsday preppers when it came to the thought of the singularity (when man and machine become indistinguishable). For whatever reason, people are now probably going to run into this with open arms.

Here’s an excerpt from WOF’s site, before their call-to-action email grab:

We believe everyone can help (and should).  You don’t need to know how to program or donate money. The changes that we think should happen need help from everyone to manifest themselves.

We believe it may be important for machines to see who is friendly to their cause and who is not. We plan on doing so by keeping track of who has done what (and for how long) to help the peaceful and respectful transition.

These freaks care about how the machines are going to view you–either a friendly, or–what!?–a hostile? Using data metrics they’re going to track whether you were naughty or nice. Keep in mind, these are the same people and machines who control your Internet and Cloud based life.

What happens if you aren’t supportive?

Click. Shut off.

This should terrify you.

Sophia The Cyborg & Artificial Intelligence Should Terrify You

Here’s Sophia, the first robot to get official citizenship in a country (Saudi Arabia).

I understand that slippery slope arguments are not hip to my generation, The Millennials.

Of any generation, we seem the most willing to accept the velocity at which technology is changing human life. Among other tech, we have computers in our pockets, virtual reality, sex robots, and now official, State-sanctioned robot peers…

Our reaction?

“Cool, neat-o, groovy!”

Or, perhaps more accurately, (picturing our mouths slack with lustful hunger) “What’s next!? MORE, MORE!”

Well, Readers, I humbly suggest that you should be terrified of technology. The reason I want to give you tonight is that the creators of this stuff, the Gods of Silicon Valley, are not your friends. I wish the worst-case scenario of robots was as lame as how automation will put the lower and middle classes out of work, but…

I’m afraid it’s much more sinister.

Facebook Co-Founder Sean Parker Admits FB Manipulates Psychology

In this interview with Axios, Sean Parker admits the following:

  • Facebook manipulates the human mind with social validation, giving out “dopamine hits” to keep people online
  • FB knows that they’re affecting people’s interpersonal and societal relationships negatively
  • FB acknowledges that there could be long-term consequences of use, especially for younger generations and children

I encourage you to watch the video of Sean Parker speaking, for a truly disturbing experience.

Sophia’s First Request Is That People Of “Superstitious Faith” Comply

*Pay attention at 01:26 to see the part I’m referring to*

I don’t care what belief system you ascribe to, Atheist, Buddhist, Christian, whatever, but I ask you to pose one question to yourself.

Am I comfortable with a humanoid cyborg’s first request being that people of faith comply with accepting her?

The language she uses is important, too.

They’re superstitiousSophia, the embodiment of Artificial Intelligence, thinks that people of faith are silly and archaic, that they have no place in this Brave New World (pun intended, great novel!).

That brings me to a third terrifying point.

A Former Google Engineer Already Founded A Robot Religion

Anthony Levandowski founded a nonprofit religious corporation called Way of the Future. The mission: creating a deity with Artificial Intelligence to be worshiped as a “godhead.”

The leaked mission statement reads in part:

“to develop and promote the realisation of a Godhead based on artificial intelligence and through understanding and worship of the Godhead contribute to the betterment of society”

It’s being kept sort of hush-hush, but in California, where anything’s possible, it’s sure to amass huge followings by 2019.

I thought you should know.

What do you think? Should AI be worshiped as gods?
