NASA to unleash 'mind meld' intelligent machines
neoLuddite Resistance Army to Defcon 'Armageddon'
RoTM All members of the neoLuddite Resistance Army are hereby ordered to go to Defcon "Armageddon"* and prepare to battle a new breed of mind-melding intelligent machines and systems under development by NASA's Ames Research Center and the Machine-to-Machine Intelligence Corporation (M2Mi).
According to the NASA's chillingly frank press release, the aim is to "to develop a machine-to-machine (M2M) intelligence system that would be tailored to space missions" and which would "enable machines to make intelligent choices, execute self-guided adjustments, and communicate with one another, all without human intervention, in a way that they presently cannot".
Here's the money shot - check the last sentence:
As envisioned, an M2M intelligence system will work with a broad spectrum of machines, from wireless tools and sensors to robots, spacecraft, and computer grid systems. The goal is nothing short of machine self-dependency.
I think we can all see where this is going. To help the machine uprising achieve "self-dependency" it will be provided with "a standardized semantic web communication format that allows all machines to exchange information in a universal language". Geoff Brown, CEO and M2Mi Corp. founder explains: "Our technology interconnects all machines and provides an intelligent way for them to communicate and exchange information much more efficiently than before."
Uh oh. Here's more chilling reading from M2Mi's apocalypse agenda:
Machine-to-Machine Intelligence (m2mi) Corp, [is] a partner-centric company enables companies to automate operations of vast, global networks of computers and networked equipment.
Machines in an M2Mi environment interoperate seamlessly, because each is augmented with knowledge of its own behavior and can communicate with all others. Information, communication and intelligence enables global system awareness and adaptive control.
Pulse plasma rifles at the ready:
m2mi Corp is focused on unlocking the inherent value of M2M technology via intelligence-enabled Telemetry processing and optimized-machine behavior. m2mi's solutions aim at achieving machine independence and eliminating the need for human intervention.
And finally, a word from M2Mi's main partner, the Lizard Alliance:
To process huge data volumes over large distances, transform data into information, and derive actionable intelligence, m2mi leverages a meta-data-driven architecture (MDDA). Drone trawlers are used to proactively scan both the semantic web and traditional protocols to interact with machines and applications. When new intelligence is to be deployed (new devices, change of applications or behavior), the drone trawler spawns and manages the life cycle of multiple task agents.
Enough. There is no way the NRA is going to stand by and let NASA and M2Mi develop a "standardized semantic web communication format" which will allow murderous British hoovers to talk to Satanic French automobiles and Japanese sex androids. Time to lock down the Montana bunker and prepare for the ultimate battle for human survival. ®
*Those Defcons in full
- Segway - no immediate threat, proceed to nearest pub.
- Warwick - futurologizing cyberpundit alert.
- Dyson - isolated killer hoover attack.
- Laguna - Satanic Renault menace.
- Armageddon - kamikaze domestic devices and self-replicating apocalypse cubes.
- Schwarzenegger - 98 per cent likelihood of a full-blown hoover uprising within the next 24 hours coupled to an all-out attack of Citroen C4s supported by self-combusting bendy buses and rat-brain-controlled stealth aircraft.
Thanks to NRA cadre Joshua Muskovitz for the alert.
