The Quest For Terminator: Google + DARPA = AI Nightmare

The question that i have wondered for decades – which capitalist company would become the ‘final Marxist’ company on top of the pyramid of capitalism, as human loose all their jobs in war and work fields to robots is now clear.

Google, GOOG, which has now started a massive buying of the most advanced robotic and military systems, including SCHAFT, winner of DARPA and Boston dynamics, creator of PETMAN and its new, scary version, ATLAS, which added to TERRAMAX, vision system gives them the most advanced robotic system in the world.

Thus google has now made the two key moves to complete the creation of a perfect superorganism of machines, a perfect automated company-mother, able to exist free of all human interference and on top of that beat any human company, any human organized social group.

Easy. It controls the Mind of the Metal-Earth, Internet, in its software summit, intelligent search, control and selective manipulation of information and android, for the alternative mobile sub-web.
And now it has in a spree bought the key companies of the robotic r=evolution hat would throw all workers substituted by machines, become a global superorganism of automated reproduction of machines and on top of the pyramid of capitalism one day in the future  decree, according to the DARWINIST, truly scientific version of capitalism, NOT the idealist fantasies and wishful thinking of Mr. Marx’ r=evolution of workers, the extinction o OF THE OBSOLETE SPECIES, US, MANKIND.

Indeed, Google controls now the best eyes of machines (Terramax system, soon to be implanted by lobbyism in Nevada, able to substitute lorry workers, transports, taxis, etc), the best mind of machines (android systems of communication between mobile-ears and chip-brains), the best networks of A.I. (Google search engines) and the best bodies/legs of machines (Boston Dynamics). It has therefore all the elements to create independent herds, platoons of machine workers and soldiers, connected to the best elements of the Nets, pure superorganisms defined and guided by A.I. software embedded in google programs.

This global company with all these components becomes a global state of warriors, as Boston DYnamics has the key war contracts with the pentagon. It knows it and so it has contracted the former CEO of Darpa, the robotic arm of the pentagon. This global company has the Earth’s mind and selects subtly with its rank systems what information is good and relevant (for example, this web has minimal rank on economic truth due obviously to its humanist standing).

As the robotic wars advances, it might easily become the biggest contractor of living robotic systems for the pentagon and global police in control of the Human Population. Thus google will manufacture the mind and body of the metal-earth and use them through governments to control in war and police system the mass of human without mind and proper body, slaves of their addictions to machines.
Now we know in America it will be google (probably Samsung in Asia), after Google, the dominant company in ‘real’ non-anthropomorphic A.I. (android, internet searchers, computer networks) has bought the dominant companies of the industry of robotics, Boston Dynamics, which found the ‘animal leg’, a spin-off of MIT.

Now Google has the contracts of pentagon weapons, the searcher of the net, the android system of communication of machines, and TerraMax, the eye of the machine, the best driving system.
So Google will create the platoons of robot terminators and robot workers that as the decades progress substitute human labor. And its search systems of data will shape the way the mind of the planet dismisses life and accepts the machine as the new citizen of the metalearth.

Those were the news:

When Google announced earlier this month that a secret division of the company had been buying up robotics companies for the past six months the internet got excited.

When the news broke this week that they’d bought Boston Dynamics, the internet got really excited.
This is because Boston Dynamicsmakes some of the most fascinating and technologically advanced robots the web has seen – and thankfully they don’t stint in uploading footage of their creations toYouTube either.

Although the acquisition doesn’t mean that Google Glass-wearing robots are going to start tramping through your living room in an effort to complete work on Street View Home, it’s exciting to look at the varied creations that Boston Dynamics will be bringing to Google’s robotic stables and imagine a future where the search giant’s ‘Don’t be evil’ motto blends with Asimov’s first law of robotics.



Essentially a remote controlled car, SandFlea has one (really good) trick up its sleeve: it can jump up to 30 feet into the air. “That is high enough to jump over a compound wall, onto the roof of a house, up a set of stairs or into a second story window,” says Boston Dynamics. An onboard gyroscope keeps the bot level during its leap whilst a camera watches the ground to ensure a touchdown with minimum fuss.



Although PetMan is undoubtedly the most disturbingly life like of Boston Dynamic’s bots in terms of its realistic walking gait and flexing movements, it’s actually more of an elaborate mannequin than a functional robot. PetMan’s unsupported walking motion and displays of light calisthenics are all designed to stress-test protective clothing that will shield troops against chemical attacks.
However, to see the potential of humanoid bots, you need only look to Atlas, PetMan bigger brother. Atlas takes PetMan’s flexible frame and puts some muscle on those metal bones. Funded by Darpa, Atlas is currently being put through its paces as a possible first-responder in disaster situations. Click here to watch it in action.

BigDog and LS3


BigDog was Boston Dynamic’s first online star. About the size of a small mule or – unsurprisingly – a big dog, this quadrupedal toiler is built to tackle difficult terrain and carry heavy loads. It’s about three feet long, two and a half feet tall and weighs just over 100kg. It can carry loads of up to 150kg and was originally funded by DARPA alongside its bigger brother LS3 (above) to provide ground support to infantry troops.
LS3 builds on Big Dog’s capabilities, adding an array of cameras and sensors that allow it automatically follow a designated leader. It also responds to voice commands, and can be told to follow or hang back. Early tests of ‘roll over’, ‘beg’ and ‘kill’ were reportedly mixed.



Cheetah takes some of the leg design seen in Big Dog and LS3 but adapts it for pure speed. It currently holds the world record for the world’s fastest legged robot, topping out at 28.3mph and smashing the previous record of 13.1mph set in 1989.
Although in the video above the Cheetah is actually being powered by a hydraulic pump located off to one side of the treadmill, there’s reason to believe that these speeds – and faster – will soon be recorded outdoors. WildCat, Cheetah’s successor, can already run up to 16mph without assistance, although the 2-stroke go-cart engine powering the beast means you’d at least hear it sneaking up on you.



Rounding off this introduction to Boston Dynamics’ bots is perhaps the most endearingly determined of all the company’s creations; RHex is a small six-legged bot that has a number of “specialized gaits that devour rough terrain with minimal operator input”.

Essentially this means that although RHex’s walking style looks silly, it can happily splash through shallow streams and stamp its way over rocky paths. A fully sealed body keeps it working in any environment and it can also be remotely controlled by an operator up to 700 metres away. Let’s just hope that when Google doles out delivery duties, RHex gets the job rather than the terrifying PetMan.

The SCHAFT robot beat out five other teams in the Track A category to win the DARPA Robotics Challenge 2013 Trial held December 20 and 21, 2013. Google recently purchased SCHAFT as part of its secret robotics project.

In total four different tracks of robots competed in the challenge trial, with Track A being DARPA funded teams and Tracks B, C and D receiving smaller levels of funding and allow for different levels of participation. MIT, WPI, Virginia Tech and Carnegie Mellon are some of the most prominent collegiate teams that participated.

Eight tasks in total were set up to allow the robots to test the mobility, dexterity, manipulation, perception and operator control mechanisms of the robots. The goal of the challenge is to transform the field of robotics and move forward development of autonomous bots. The hope is that robots will be able to better aid us in hazardous conditions found in disaster zones.

The eight tasks are built to simulate the acts needed during a natural disaster. Operating a vehicle, navigating difficult terrain, climbing a ladder and clearing debris are the first four tasks. Tasks five through eight are door manipulation, removing an object from a wall, manipulating valves, and operating a hose.

Each task has a set of constraints, starting conditions and sub-tasks that can be completed. The Debris task, for instance, gives one point for removing five pieces of debris, a second point for moving five more pieces of debris and a third point for traveling through the doorway that is usable after the debris is cleared.

This 2013 trail set the baseline for the current state of robotics and will help DARPA to decide who to fund for the coming year. At the 2014 finals DARPA hopes that the robots will have what they call supervised or task-level autonomy. It is hoped that the human operator can give the robot a command like “open the door” and the robot will perform the task by itself, using programming and sensors to take into account any unexpected factors.

Google’s acquisition of the SCHAFT robot is one of several that the search engine giant has made in the past year. The overall goal isn’t yet clear but Google doesn’t generally do things that won’t result in large-scale commercial benefit.


So that is the end of the news. And the beginning of the new and final capitalist pyramid with Google on top:


In the graph we observe the Google robotic network in its faces of growth from a 20 year old book on the extinction of life. We didnt of course knew who would be the company of Metalia, we knew though its elements, were to be robots and intranets, sections of internet with military or corporative use. And as the numbers of robot increased its numbers, the laws of complexity would determine a network of increasing freedom and capacity to self-operate without the need of humans. Those are laws of basic freedom/intelligence that will allow GOOG to enter states of increasing consciousness as the main corporation of the metal-earth.

This point of course of self-consciousness of a corporation – the organism that shows the will of machines – have always been an important element of my research. Because it is in my opinion the point of true A.I. a true global concept where each computer is merely a neuron, of a much vaster non-human concept. AI will exist in the hardware of satellites and google servers, it will though mean a very different thing, the birth of the Metal-earth, of a global work in which intranets of computers and robots reproducing the vital elements of the Metal-earth will grow organically around a few key corporations, google, amazon transporting with drones products between different corporations, etc. all of them increasingly automated. This birth of a ‘ non-human corporation’ is the point in which life and machine become separated and to me will be the point of extinction of life, as it will happen as always have done in corporations of war.

Google moving into the sector of weapons of robotic design shows that hunger to merge mind and
body of the global machines.

The previous graph has 20 years.
 The price of chips and its quantity of transistors etc. were in fact conservative at present prices… In the next graph from the same old book the point of extinction should be the famous point of the singularity the birth of A.I., but that will take place in the net as a global superorganism:image300
