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!
We, who are in America, blame China for stealing jobs. In China, I wonder do they blame the robots steal their jobs? Check out the video above as the robots seen replacing waiters in serving foods.
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.
So, Artificial Intelligence is being promoted as a technology which could help automate many things such as cars, airplanes, boats, bus, businesses, and so on. Nonetheless, I’m hoping to see someone develops an AI app for personal uses such as helping one learns a second language! Imagine how awesome it could be if an app is an AI which could teach you how to speak Chinese, German, or whatever language you wish to learn. I imagine that this AI app could talk to you, correct you, and communicate with you until you become fluent in a foreign language!
Why stop there! Imagine that someone could also develop an AI app to teach children math, physics, history and so much more. I think AI could excel at promoting education. With AI I think children could learn more efficiently and the schools may be able to free up school resources for other important agenda. Of course, you never know that AI could eventually transform the role of a school into either something else entirely or the school could cease to exist altogether. If your children and adult friends could learn just about anything through the AI interaction — why bother wasting resources in funding a school?
In the last blog post “Can Our Universe Expand Forever Or Expand Then Contract Later Just So It Could Die?” I surmised that the universe (our universe among many others) could have been expanding and contracting according to how it got fed with external energy — where such force would have to wander outside our very own singularity. Without such external nursery of energy, I surmised that our universe is like a quantifiable fish aquarium. Nonetheless, we all know that even a human being could be intelligibly randomized things at will — thus I think according to the universe we’re sentient beings are the AI (artificial intelligent). How about let me surmise some more and say that — what if the universe itself is a higher artificial intelligent force in which it could randomize things at will to expand and contract according to circumstances?
We human beings could only see the results of why the universe is expanding and contracting according to our very own whatever theories — but why would the universe do such a thing? What’s the point of expanding or contracting? Expanding to create more empty space for what? Contracting is like a suicidal attempt of killing itself off so the existence of the universe itself would cease to exist. Furthermore, perhaps the universe itself is like a smart TV or fishbowl/aquarium in which it was designed by a higher being. This way the purpose of expanding and contracting won’t be the burden with which the universe has to carry. This burden could be carried by the designer of the universe.
At this point, I think it’s more like a philosophical thinking than anything concrete on this matter, but it’s so intriguing nonetheless. In my opinion, philosophical or not, it’s rather important for us sentient beings to dig deeper into our origin. After all, if we could not remember how we’d come into being, then we would forever aimlessly forget about our root and forever lost — wandering in a dark forest (Three Body Problem’s sci-fi trilogy second book is also titled as The Dark Forest). I think only when we could figure out our true root of how we’d come into the existence, it is then that we could evolve to be something greater. Perhaps in such a quest, we could discover new technology to bring us to new heights; we could grow into even more capable and intelligent sentient beings.
