NVIDIA’s AI is now able to generate countless realistic human faces, and you probably cannot tell if these faces are fake or real. Watch the video right after the break, and you will see what I mean. Basically, from the algorithm, the AI is able to morph a female face into a male face seamlessly. Look closely, you can tell the latter does resemble the former a bit, but you can also tell it’s indeed a male face and not a female face.
This technology can definitely fake an image, video, and whatnot of a real human being. With bad intention, someone could definitely frame a person in a sex scandal or whatnot. So, how can you be sure that what your eyes are seeing is actually a factual event?
A Chinese news agency Xinhua had just unleashed a world first news anchor AI presenter which based on a real human’s facial expressions. You could easily tell the speech is spoken by AI since the voice is quite digitized. Anyhow, I think they could as well make the voice seems more human-like if they choose.
I wonder if someone else out there is watching this video and has an idea that what if we could also get rid of real actors by using this technology, right? I think it’s possible in the future that we could use AI to replace real human actors! Nonetheless, I could also foresee the possibility of using this technology to fabricate and frame a good person in a scandal!
Some supercars of today cost more than a couple cool million dollars to own, but how comfortable could you be in such cars when you got a Volvo 360c? Unfortunately, this is only a concept so far, I think! Nonetheless, I hope something like this could come sooner rather than later! After all, I hate driving between states and prefer playing video games, watching movies, and listening to music while on move. Often time I could find myself preferring to sleep than drive while on the move from one point to another point. At the moment, driving means seriously limiting yourself while on the move. Your eyes gotta be on the road 99.9% of the time to avoid any serious but avoidable accident so you could make to your destination safely! I think something like Volvo 360c could definitely allow me to avert my eyes away from the traffic and allow me to concentrate on something else that I could enjoy while on the go. Check out the video right after the break to see how cool a Volvo 360c could be!
Here is how I imagine a scenario of a huge war between two powerful countries or two united opposing forces in the near future. In my scenario, a near future will be almost unthinkable if essential something isn’t automated and fully capable of self-regulating through Artificial Intelligence. If two opposing forces are all automated and regulated by AI capabilities — how much collateral damage would there be on human civilians? Is it just too dumb to allow a human soldier to be fighting against a more capable AI mechanized counterpart?
I imagine that two opposing forces would launch an all-out war with all the weapons they have in their arsenals. Such weapons could be fully mechanized automated machines to fully automated electronic spy drones and such. I also imagine that these two opposing forces would prefer not to use human soldiers for the most parts of the war. Human soldiers would probably be on standby to evacuate the human civilians if there won’t be enough mechanized units that are still available in doing such a job.
As the war intensifies, each force would pray that their technology and AI automated weapons could outdo the other until either the enemy’s units and weapons run low or their own units got annihilated. Once such an intense process runs through its course, the victor would aim their robotic units onto the enemy’s human civilian and non-civilian forces. The losing side got almost no option at this point! Either be a hero to fight to the death or surrender unconditionally.
Of course, I leave out the possibility that a nuclear war could be provoked. How come? I imagine that if such a war between two opposing forces could break out — it means nuclear weapons would probably be canceled out of the equation or rendered less capable somehow. Perhaps, if such a war occurs between such two forces, it means either both sides have already somehow disabled each other nuclear weapons or one of these two forces is suicidal.
In conclusion, human soldiers may not be very useful in the future unless they’re going to be used as human spies to infiltrate the enemy’s human networks. For the most parts of a futuristic war, fully automated AI mechanized units would be used to subdue the enemy or enemies. A futuristic war could break out between two most powerful forces means nuclear weapons are no longer in the strategic calculation because these weapons either got disabled somehow or someone is on a suicidal mission.
Isn’t it natural that soon Artificial Intelligence (AI) would steal jobs from soldiers? We all know that AI had beaten best Chess and Go players at their games. We also know that AI also had beaten best video gamers in video games. This means the responsiveness and the intelligence parts of the AI could be used in war scenarios to outdo the human counterparts.
I won’t be surprised to see the future where many wars would deploy AI for automation of submarines, tanks, jets, missiles, and so much more. The video right after the break suggests that China is developing fully automated submarines with AI capability to outdo foes’ submarines and surface ships in a war.
