"One day, I believe we'll be able to send full rich thoughts to each other directly using technology. You'll just be able to think of something and your friends will immediately be able to experience it too if you'd like. This would be the ultimate communication technology"
"In the next 10 years, Internet.org has the potential to help connect hundreds of millions or billions of people who do not have access to the Internet today," he wrote. "Research has found that for every 10 people who gain access to the Internet, about 1 person is raised out of poverty. So if we can connect the 4 billion people in the world who are unconnected, we can potentially raise 400 million people out of poverty. That's perhaps one of the greatest things we can do in the world.
I've heard of some dumb things in my life, but the idea of AI (artificial intelligence) is exactly what the name suggests: artificial. It will always be artificial and there is no way a machine can think. A computer can only process the information given to it. But the suggestion that people could communicate with just their minds is completely ludicrous. This reminds me of the god syndrome where computer geeks like Zuckerberg think that they can be like God; God wannabes.
Let's say two people put on a device and start "thinking" to each other. How dumb is that? I suppose that these thoughts will be recorded and could be played back. If this kind of thing is possible--I doubt it--I can only imagine the arguments that will ensue because someone thought something nasty about the other person. However, the real benefit to Facebook and the government is the ability to find "dissidents" and then attempt to read their minds. If there is one ugly thought from the dissident, he could immediately be arrested and executed for a thought crime. I would be one of the first. But the idiocy of an idea like this fits in perfect with the AI of the corporate techno brain trust. If this could be done, then anyone with a bad thought could be punished by the govtards by sending an electric shock through the device for having the bad thought. Talk about mind control! Court cases could be started against dissidents because they had a bad thought and the possibilities are endless.
The computer geeks want this because the mind is the last bastion of privacy, and they don't like us enjoying it. If they can find a way to record thoughts, then they can find a way to control them. And that's what these AI communists want to do. Of course, they could simply make up anything they want and then say their devices recorded it when in fact it cannot be done. Frankly, anyone who uses Facebook already has artificial intelligence. The arrogance and hubris of an idea like AI is truly amazing. But, in thinking about it, it seems to me that the artificial intelligence should be pinned on the socialists and the libtards.
This gets better. According to Zuckerberg, in the above quote, many millions of people will be lifted out of poverty if only they could connect to the internet. Oy! The true cause of poverty is socialist-communist style governments, not the ability to connect to the internet. People need to work to support themselves and their families, and the way to do that is to get rid of socialists and libtards from all points of "authority." If there was a truly free economy, everyone could take care of themselves. Connection to the internet is not going to provide an exit out of poverty.
Getting back to the AI, it is my opinion that the true intent here is to play God and to control mankind. No one can duplicate what God has created, and artificial intelligence is just exactly what it describes; artificial, not the real thing. And the claim that someone could accurately read another man's mind is ridiculous. But, if they repeat the lie over and over, many people will believe it. I can only imagine what kind of social disaster this idea could bring.
