Graham C  ….. sharing some observations on https://www.rt.com/uk/363502-artificial-intelligence-stephen-hawking/
Hawking warned AI “could develop a will of its own – a will that is in conflict with ours.”
“The rise of powerful AI will be either the best, or the worst thing, ever to happen to humanity.”
And in the field with fields securing and transmitting intelligence information which is better kept as a closed circle secret for the greater enablement of a chosen few who be able to enable with secret intelligence information, rather than be more widely shared as public general knowledge, is it possible with IT and Media Command and Control to be both the best and the worst thing for happenings to humanity, and at any time and place of their choosing.
If you wear a white hat and deal in nothing but fundamental truths is everything never bad. Wear a black hat and deal in falsehoods and nothing is ever good.

The surely honest bottom line is the Western banking system in inherently systemically corrupted and perverse and thus is any radical change which purges it of bandits and sets out to supply its services to new cleaner partners, to be wholeheartedly welcomed and supported.
Bravo, Elvira and Russia. Jolly well played. And the game is only just started.
And of course we must ask of Mother Russia ….. Is that Ye Olde Great Game rebooted with SMARTR ProgramMING for ITs rebranding and rebuilding in a series of Greater IntelAIgent Games to Play at RESTful Work [REpresentational State Transfer Work] with AIRemote Command[s] and Virtual Control[s] in CHAOS …. Clouds Hosting Advanced Operating Systems?
Although such a question be clearly also asked of anyone and everyone espying it here too.
There’s more than just a lot of fabulously strange and wonderful stuff going on out there, in the spaces you are yet to visit and enjoy. And remember if wary, never forget to be aware that Proper Preparation and Positive Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance Permitting Prime Prize Penetration and Perfect Private Protocolled Pursuit of Public Parametered Projects and Pirate ProgramMING Presentations alike.
Have a nice 0day, y’all
