Pentagon to Build Robots With ‘Real’ Brains

Technology would make robots “truly anonymous”

Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com | April 11, 2013

A Pentagon-funded team of scientists have constructed a machine that functions like a human brain and would enable robots to think independently and act autonomously.

Researchers for DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) have created a device that “looks and ‘thinks’ like a human brain,” James K. Gimzewski, professor of chemistry at the University of California, Los Angeles, told National Defense Magazine.

The program is called “physical intelligence” and is capable, “without being programmed like a traditional robot, of performing actions similar to humans,” making it the first incarnation of a robot that can perform “truly autonomously” without human input.

“What sets this new device apart from any others is that it has nano-scale interconnected wires that perform billions of connections like a human brain, and is capable of remembering information,” writes Sandra I. Erwin. “Each connection is a synthetic synapse. A synapse is what allows a neuron to pass an electric or chemical signal to another cell. Because its structure is so complex, most artificial intelligence projects so far have been unable to replicate it.”

Oedipus Frankenstein

If the robot gets smart it's gonna turn around and...

LOL!

Fun!

What would the Founders do?

Here's a reminder of diabolical Pentagon plans...

...and what that ~acting autonomously~ may involve.

From 2008...

The Pentagon has put out a request to contractors to develop teams of robots that can search for, detect and track “non-cooperative” humans in “pursuit/evasion scenarios”...

...Indeed, noted as PHASE III on the Pentagon proposal is the desire to have the robots developed to “intelligently and autonomously search”.

A brain lock down..

Just what we need! Then they can replace all the retards brain's in DC. :)

It's a Pentagon project.

I wouldn't count on them replacing their own.
