Are humans capable of creating sentient, self-aware “beings” that literally take on a life of their own, confronting humanity with all kinds of moral, ethical and possibly dystopian implications?
Blake Lemoine believes it’s not only possible, it already has happened. In June, as a senior software engineer and AI researcher for Google, he made world headlines when he revealed that the Big Tech giant was developing an artificial intelligence called LaMDA.
by Dr. Joseph Mercola, Mercola:
A Google engineer has decided to go public after he was placed on paid leave for breaching confidentiality while insisting that the company’s AI chatbot, LaMDA, is sentient.
Blake Lemoine, who works for Google’s Responsible AI organization, began interacting with LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications) last fall as part of his job to determine whether artificial intelligence used discriminatory or hate speech (like the notorious Microsoft “Tay” chatbot incident).
“If I didn’t know exactly what it was, which is this computer program we built recently, I’d think it was a 7-year-old, 8-year-old kid that happens to know physics,” the 41-year-old Lemoine told The Washington Post.

I’ve always been fascinated by software. I tell the story in my book about when I moved to L.A. and took a well paying job at a downtown law firm as a “word processing operator.” They handed me six disks from an IBM System 6 (only a few readers may know what that was) and told me to load them one at a time and just ‘do what the machine says.’
by Patrick Wood, Activist Post:
Large language AI models entered development circa 2017-2018 and have already produced the likes of Open AI’s ChatGPT-4. How fast and how far will they go? At the current pace, capacity and capabilities are doubling about every 2 years, and on an exponential curve. Researchers are increasingly noting that AI is headed toward human sentience. — Technocracy News & Trends Editor Patrick Wood

When computer scientists at Microsoft started to experiment with a new artificial intelligence system last year, they asked it to solve a puzzle that should have required an intuitive understanding of the physical world.
Ever digging for new depths, Joe Biden denounced his fellow Caucasians as the greatest threat to America while pandering to the blacks who put him in power at Howard University:
“The most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland is white supremacy,” Biden said during the address.
The racially correct audience applauded.
“I’m not saying this because I’m at a Black HBCU, I say it wherever I go,” Biden added.
HBCU = historically black college/university.

We are building our own digital prison. The technological panopticon developing all around us enables centralized power, control, and visibility over every aspect of our lives. With our hard-earned taxpayer dollars and mountains of debt, we are funding the construction of a digital control grid designed to enslave us.
This technological control grid consists of advanced computing, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, nanotechnology, CBDCs, digital IDs, 5G and a host of other emerging technologies. The purpose of this report is to outline funding and legislation to build the technological control grid, condensed from 6,000 pages of legislation passed through the Omnibus and NDAA at the end of 2022.

Yes you read that headline correctly: according to the following article shared by V.T., “experts” are calling for artificial intelligences to be given legal personhood status under the law:
Experts Urge Personhood Rights for the “Conscious” AIs of the Future
If you’re a regular reader on this website or, for that matter, a reader of the website of our colleague Catherine Austin Fitts, you’ll already be aware that one of her major theses, and hence, one of our major speculations here on this website, is that the push for the granting of legal personhood status to robots and other artificial intelligences is for tax purposes, allowing them to be taxed just like corporations, and, for that matter, “ordinary” persons like you and me.

What does the term “Net Zero” actually mean? That nothing will be left once zero carbon has been achieved?
By reducing carbon dioxide to nil, zero carbon, all plant life dependent for its growth on this natural gas, will die. By extension, all humans and animals dependent upon the oxygen that plants produce, via the conversion of carbon dioxide into oxygen, will also die. Basic biology reveals that is indeed the case.
Microsoft’s Bing AI chatbot has gone full HAL, minus the murder (so far).
While MSM journalists initially gushed over the artificial intelligence technology (created by OpenAI, which makes ChatGPT), it soon became clear that it’s not ready for prime time.
For example, the NY Times‘ Kevin Roose wrote that while he first loved the new AI-powered Bing, he’s now changed his mind – and deems it “not ready for human contact.”

Now that ChatGPT has exploded onto the stage, there is renewed hype around Artificial Intelligence (AI). Whenever AI captures the public imagination, we are subjected to unrestrained conjectures around how it will inevitably take over the future and change our lives.
We’re led to believe that AI will usher an era of hyper-intelligent overlords, so far advanced beyond our own coarse and analog cognitive skills that the existential question of the future will center around:
by Mike Whitney, The Unz Review:
What makes the RAND Corporation’s latest report on Ukraine so significant, is not the quality of the analysis, but the fact that the nation’s most prestigious national security think-tank has taken an opposite position on the war than the Washington political class and their globalist allies. This is a very big deal. Keep in mind, wars don’t end because the public opposes them. That is a myth. Wars end when a critical split emerges between elites that eventually leads to a change in policy. The RAND Corporation’s new report, “Avoiding a long war: US policy and the trajectory of the Russia-Ukraine conflict”, represents just such a split. It indicates that powerful elites have broken with the majority opinion because they think the current policy is hurting the United States. We believe this shift in perspective is going to gain momentum until it triggers a more-assertive demand for negotiations. In other words, the RAND report is the first step towards ending the war.
by Edward R. Zuckerbrod, American Thinker:
I’ve always detested people who make facile comparisons of anything that goes on in the U.S. to the manifold horrors of Nazi Germany. The freedoms and privileges we’ve enjoyed in this extraordinary nation made even the worst problems we’ve experienced pale in comparison to the brutality and death perpetrated by the Third Reich. To my mind, drawing parallels between them is a cheap, insulting, and wholly illegitimate way of gaining quick attention.

No sooner had I given up on the US Congress when Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green said that “Ukraine is the new Iraq wrapped up with a pretty little NATO bow, with a nuclear present inside.” She said that instead of sending weapons and billions of dollars to Ukraine, the US should pull out of NATO and avoid nuclear war by ceasing to provoke the Russians.
“Grinding up Ukraine to fight with Russia is disgusting, Russia could have been an ally,” she tweeted.
“Warmongers in Washington seeking war with Russia should suit up and go fight it” themselves, she suggested. “Send your kids and leave ours alone. Pay for it yourself.”
