New Artificial Intelligence Is A Natural At Killing Humans

Source - Mysterious Universe

by Brett Tingley, October 3rd 2016

Robots are getting scarier and scarier every day. It was only a matter of time, I suppose. Already, Chinese police forces have begun testing weaponized police-bots, and the U.S. Marine Corps has several machine gun-wielding robots in prototype and R&D stages. While most of these robots can only respond to pre-programmed commands and must be controlled by a human overseer, advances in artificial intelligence might enable these weapon-wielding robots to begin acting autonomously – even if that means using weapons on humans. Just this week, an announcement by two computer science students at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) has made science fiction’s visions of deadly robots a little closer to reality.

The system has so far been taught to play the game DOOM, but could be extended to real world applications.

According to a press release issued by CMU, computer science students Devendra Chaplot and Guillaume Lample have developed an artificial intelligence system that has outperformed both humans and in-game AI at killing other players. The system uses deep learning systems and a reward-based reinforcement system to encourage the AI to get better at murdering other players – in the classic first-person shooter game DOOM, that is.

The researchers behind this potentially deadly development have published their results on arXiv.org but their methods have yet to be peer reviewed. According to their research, their artificial intelligence can learn different aspects of the game simultaneously, enabling it to learn and develop optimal strategies much faster than humans are capable of:
Our architecture is also modularized to allow different models to be independently trained for different phases of the game. We show that the proposed architecture substantially outperforms built-in AI agents of the game as well as humans in deathmatch scenarios.
One of the researchers, Devendra Chaplot, was quick to point out in CMU’s press release that the system is not specifically designed to kill people:
We didn’t train anything to kill humans. We just trained it to play a game.
However, some computer science journalists have already pointed out that this system is easily portable, meaning it could be used in scenarios other than playing video games. Were the system’s visual inputs attached to cameras, the system could easily navigate say, city streets, and shoot real humans rather than in-game avatars. But hey, the military industrial complex probably isn’t already developing their own killer AI systems, right?

Israel Aerospace Industries’ Harop drones are able to autonomously detect and take down enemy air-defense systems.

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
