FWIW, the reason you have not seen a lot of “every Friday Market postings” is because I’ve come to understand that machine driven trading dominates the Stock Markets. There is no reason trying to predict “what the market of people will do” when the market is about 75% to 85% computers (which it is).
It becomes an exercise in “predict what their algorithm will do” which is a bit daft from the get go.
So I largely decided to “bank my position” and bridge to retirement. (And have succeeded at that).
But this video is creepy. Especially given that it is 2 years out of date compared to current state of the art (and likely more years behind “what Darpa can do”)
It really is a bit over the top when you realize that your worst paranoid moments were way short of the reality… Facial recognition from above based on things like your ears and gate? Well, OK, I can see how I would program for that… Oh Damn!
So, OK, add Large Hat to my “going out side” kit and also add “Monty Python Funny Walks Department” but not as a gag… Can Guys wear a Burka?
Sorry, no /sarc; on that…
We are in fact sleep walking into the 100% surveillance society.
Then there are several bits of A.I. working on “Pre Crime” to predict when and where a “crime” will happen. But given how governments have had a rather flexible definition of what a “crime” really is, that does not provide comfort. (On the way home today I saw 2 billboards about home delivery of cannabis… Yet folks are in prison today for past convictions for possession. Absurd? Yes, but it is reality.)
In Australia now it is a crime to defend yourself or have the means to do so. I’ll post the videos on that at some point just to make it clear. But someone invades your home with a knife and you hit them with a baseball bat and “stop the attack” – there’s a set of Monday Morning Quarterbacks who decide if that was “proportional” or not (i.e. could you have just run away and let the take your stuff and rape your wife and NOT clocked them one) who will determine your fine and / or prison term… for being invaded and attacked. Simple possession of something that could be a weapon is a criminal act unless you can show a justified reason for having it. Like, oh, a baseball bat and not on a team – YOU go to the pokey. I’ve never been so glad I decided NOT to take that job in Australia….
Who will run this attack robots? You? Or The Globalists? What happens when the Yellow Vests are met with a Robot Police Line?
It will be here faster than we think…
