Microsoft Working To Create A Robot ‘Second Self’ That Will Be Our Inseparable Digital Alter Ego

by Geoffrey Grider


As artificial intelligence is rapidly becoming both more sophisticated and more integrated into our lives, Microsoft is positioning itself at the forefront of artificial intelligence research.

"And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed." Revelation 13:15 (KJV)
EDITOR'S NOTE: As I write this, in the last days before the Rapture of the Church, Microsoft, Google and Amazon are working feverishly to integrate the crazy popular 'digital assistants' like Alexa, Cortana and Echo into our lives. We reported a few days ago that Facebook is  jumping into the game as well with 'Portal'. To prepare the lost to receive the 'image of the beast' from Revelation 13, the world is being groomed right now to accept 'digital assistants' which are nothing more than AI matched with human qualities. People all over the world are already talking to these digital images brought to life in thier living rooms, telling them to do things, asking them questions, and getting very dependant on them. The future is now, people, time to wake up and get ready for what comes next. 
Business Insider spoke with Microsoft president and CLO Brad Smith and EVP of AI and Research Harry Shum about their new book, "The Future Computed," in which they explain how the company is prepared to do this.
In it, Smith and Shum argue that:
  • The companies and countries that embrace AI will perform best.
  • There must be a consensus on the ethics of AI to enable consumer trust.
  • AI research must be shared among competitors if progress is to reach its full potential.
  • There needs to be an infusion of talent from people with humanities backgrounds to guide AI to human parity when decision-making responsibility is handed over to the technology.
  • They stress the need for tech to work with governments and academia to determine the best ways for overcoming the potential dangers of handing over aspects of our lives to computers mimicking human thought.
"We make the point that tech companies will know more than anybody else about how the technology works, but that doesn't mean that tech companies will know best how AI should be used in ways that are societally responsible and beneficial," Smith said.

In a conversation relayed below, Smith and Shum told us how Microsoft plans to take the lead, how they think AI will affect the future of work, and how 20 years from now our "alter egos" will exist in artificial intelligence.

Richard Feloni: You write about the interplay among tech companies, governments, and academia in terms of the development of AI. Why is Microsoft taking a leadership position at the forefront of AI research?
Brad Smith: Well, I guess first and foremost, we see the need to broaden the conversation about these issues. You have people in the tech sector focused intensely on issues like ethics for AI, and there's interaction with academia and universities about this. But this needs to be a conversation that brings in people from across society.
Similarly, the conversations happening around the economy and jobs need to build on the expertise and even the perspective that people creating AI now have. So what we're hoping to do is contribute to the broader conversations that we think need to take place.

The rise of the digital assistant predicted in 'Iron Man' movie:

For us, it's of obvious importance just in the sense that we are one of the three or four or five companies that I think most people would say are among the most advanced in creating AI technology. In addition, I think we have if not a completely unique, a somewhat differentiated approach to the creation of AI. We're not trying to build AI as a black box solution that everybody buys completely from us. We're not trying to bill it as some consulting service that people buy from us.
As we said quite explicitly, we're seeking to democratize AI, meaning we're taking the very AI building blocks and making them available for others to use. But just as that empowers many people, it also means that these ethical issues need to be thought about much more broadly as a result.

Feloni: Taking a look at this notion of democratizing AI, sharing responsibility, taking a look at the ethical side of things — how does that affect competition? What about in terms of how your competitors see things? And how willing are you to kind of share some proprietary research that you've gathered?
Smith: Well, Harry can speak to this. There's probably no company that shares more research than Microsoft. Because at Microsoft Research, people publish.
Harry Shum: We created Microsoft Research 26 years ago, under Bill Gates. At that time, he already imagined that in the future, we'd have computers that can see, hear, listen, talk, and understand like human beings.
We actually have the philosophy that for pretty much everything we do for research, we publish. Therefore we share it with the community, with academia and the industry. I think there is no exception when it comes to AI.
Feloni: This is beneficial to business, as well?
Smith: It's totally fair to say if our business is going to succeed, it's going to because customers across the economy, both in the public and private sectors, move forward with the development of AI projects, systems, and services. And we want people to go forward in ways that are well informed, that are thoughtful, and in a sense, a commitment to shared responsibility. It is going to take a broad commitment to shared responsibility in order to ensure that AI is used well.
Feloni: You start off the book from a consumer's perspective, where it seems like the description of Cortana is a little bit like Jarvis in "Iron Man," a personal assistant for everything. What can someone expect 20 years from now in terms of a daily experience with AI?
Shum: I think predicting the future is always hard, but one thing Brad and I firmly believe is that the ultimate form of AI is a digital assistant —a digital assistant that really understands you, and with your permission knows everything about you.
Internally we use the words "alter ego" — really a second self. I think that a lot of AI capabilities will be developed in 20 years. There's already so much progress with reading and writing, and things like guiding people through solving math equations, and AI will be able to help us do a lot more. the rest here.

MARK OF THE BEAST ALERT!! Google Creating Mark Of The Beast ‘Smart City’ In Canada As Pilot Test Project For Global Application!!

Google Creating Mark Of The Beast ‘Smart City’ In Canada As Pilot Test Project For Global Application

by Geoffrey Grider


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who announced the partnership with Google, said he hoped that Quayside would become 'a thriving hub for innovation and a community for tens of thousands of people to live, work and play.'

"And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."Revelation 13:15-17 (KJV)
EDITOR'S NOTE: If there is any one company that could be associated with the gathering end times darkness, it would be, hands down, Google. From secretive contracts with DARPA and the Pentagon to create software weaponry, to the robot army they are spending billions to develop, right down to all the information they gather on you when you search for anything, Google is at the top of the heap in last days bedevilment. Now they are getting ready to begin construction on an area in Toronto to create the world's first ever 'smart city. But calling it a surveillance city would be a much more fitting term. And when this is successful, and it will be, the next step will be to begin building them anywhere and everywhere. There is no mark of the beast until the Beast shows up after that Rapture of the Church, but his system? You are watching it being created right now. Just ask Alexa, she'll tell you.
Constant surveillance may sound like an Orwellian vision of the future, but it could become reality in a 'smart city' district being planned by Google's parent company. Alphabet is turning a disused area of Toronto's waterfront into the first of its high tech neighbourhoods, as a pilot project for bigger things to come.
Everything from rubbish bins to traffic lights could be equipped with hardware designed to gather data and monitor changing conditions in the area. If successful, the scheme could one day lead to entire cities where citizens every move is scrutinised by technology.
The plans, being developed at Alphabet-owned Sidewalk Labs, will start with the construction of an area called Quayside, located just southeast of Downtown Toronto.
Technology tested in this first stage will then be brought in across the Eastern Waterfront in an area known as Port Lands, one of North America’s largest areas of underdeveloped urban land at more than 325 hectares (800 acres).
Sidewalk Toronto, which will be home to Google's Canadian headquarters and some 300 employees once complete, aims to integrate technology wherever possible to create a more efficient and heavily automated urban environment.
The company expects the area will house 5,000 people and host another 5,000 workers within three to four years. But the sheer scale of data gathering required to make it a reality are a cause of concern to some industry experts.
David Murakami Wood, an associate professor at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, who studies surveillance in cities, is worried that our ability to give consent to trade our privacy for convenience 'goes out the window straight away' under the scheme.
Speaking to CBC News, he said: 'I think in some ways what we're facing here is a situation where none of this is very much like anything we've seen before.
'I think maybe we're putting too much emphasis on privacy as a defence against this kind of surveillance capitalism.
'And I think we're going to find out the limitations of that approach pretty soon, because it doesn't deal with a lot of other issues around human rights and forms of inequality that are generated through these systems.'
Dr Wood is not the only academic concerned over the implications of the plans. Andrew Clement is a Professor Emeritus and surveillance researcher in the Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto, where he co-founded the Identity, Privacy and Security Institute.
Speaking to the Toronto Star, he said: 'Sidewalk Labs’ proposal to build Quayside as an experimental urban neighbourhood “from the internet up” should raise red flags for those who care about privacy and democracy.
mark-zuckerberg-mobile-world-congress-digital-zombies-virtual-reality-beast-end-times-ntebCLICK FOR ALL THE LATEST UPDATES ON THE COMING MARK OF THE BEAST SYSTEM
'These concerns can be allayed only if Sidewalk’s internet is much more respecting of our rights than the one that its parent, Google/Alphabet, is busily shaping. It would be impractical for individual residents of Quayside to be able to consent, on an adequately informed basis, to the myriad forms of data collection and use proposed.'
Among the areas for innovation targeted by Sidewalk Labs is urban mobility, with self-driving technology and digital navigation tools giving rise to a next-generation, point-to-point transit system.
New construction methods and flexible building designs will enable radical mixed-use, walkable neighbourhoods that reduce the cost of housing and retail space, the firm says. It claims a suite of design and infrastructure innovations will dramatically reduce building energy consumption, landfill waste, and carbon emissions.
In a written statement, a company spokesman said: 'Sidewalk Toronto will blend people-centered urban design with cutting-edge technology to achieve new standards of sustainability, affordability, mobility, and economic opportunity.
'At the core of a future city is a layer of digital infrastructure that provides ubiquitous connectivity for all, offers new insights on the urban environment, and encourages creation and collaboration to address local challenges.
'All-weather infrastructure and data-driven management tools enable cities to make parks and public plazas more comfortable, lively, and safe, and self-driving vehicles enable communities to reclaim streets for public space and social connections.'

Google parent Alphabet announced its plans to invest $50 million (£36 million) in the initial planning and testing phase of the project in October 2017.

'For the foreseeable future this will be the primary focus of what we do,' Dan Doctoroff, chief executive of Sidewalk Labs, said in an interview at the time.
One of the first projects Sidewalk Labs will take on is a sensor-based technology to manage crowds on a nearby street often filled with a potent mix of pedestrians, cyclists and motorised traffic, which Mr Doctoroff said could be tested as early as the first quarter of 2018.
He said the company was also looking to integrate self-driving technology into the project over the longer term.
Assuming initial success, Sidewalk Labs could expand its partnership with Waterfront Toronto, the public agency funded by federal, provincial and city governments with a mandate to develop a much larger area nearby of industrial wasteland.
Mr Doctoroff said the company had looked at more than 50 metropolitan areas in North America and sites in western Europe and Australia before settling on Toronto as the prime location for its future city test bed.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who announced the partnership with Google, said he hoped that Quayside would become 'a thriving hub for innovation and a community for tens of thousands of people to live, work and play.'
The Google unit has previously worked with Qualcomm Inc and Civiq Smartscapes to retrofit New York City phone booths into digital billboards that serve as WiFi hotspots.
Intersection, the Sidewalk Labs subsidiary behind the effort, recently launched similar kiosks in London.  Another division, Flow, has held talks with cities such as Columbus, Ohio, about providing software to evaluate transit programs. source

Turkish President Erdogan To Meet With Pope Francis In Secret Talks To Overturn Trump Recognition Of Jerusalem

by Geoffrey Grider


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will visit Pope Francis at the Vatican next month for talks likely to focus on the US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem." Zechariah 12:9 (KJV)
EDITOR'S NOTE: When it became apparent that Donald Trump was going to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Pope Francis called for urgent prayer that Jerusalem would remain divided and out of Israeli control. Now Turkish president Erdogan will meet with the anti-Israel pope in secret closed-door meetings to discuss what the Muslim response should be. Just as the Vatican had signed concordats with Hitler to help bring the Nazis to power and protect them, they are now aligning with the Muslims to conspire to give control of Jerusalem to the Palestinians. 
The Turkish leader and head of the Roman Catholic Church both strongly opposed the move announced by US President Donald Trump at the end of last year.
Erdogan called Trump's recognition of Jerusalem a "bomb" which would inflame the Middle East and his top diplomat called for the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.
Erdogan's first trip to the tiny state will be on February 5, the Vatican said. It follows phone calls between the two leaders who share concerns over the recognition of Israeli rights to Jerusalem and agree that the status quo should remain.
The Argentine-born pope met Erdogan during his trip to Turkey in November 2014. The return visit will be the first by a Turkish president since 1959.
Erdogan has expressed hope for a better relationship with the European Union after a fractious 2017, despite concerns over human rights violations in Turkey, particularly during the crackdown that followed a failed coup in July 2016.
Francis has repeatedly praised Turkey's efforts to welcome Syrian refugees and has said the country can be a "great peacemaker", while also warning against "fanaticism and fundamentalism".
But the relationship has not always been plain sailing: tensions flared in 2016 when the pope denounced the World War I killing of Armenians as a genocide, enraging Turkey, who has steadfastly denied there was a massacre of Armenians.
Armenians have long sought international recognition for the killings as genocide, but Turkey -- the Ottoman Empire's successor state -- argues that it was a collective tragedy in which both Turks and Armenians died. source

1984: Facebook Getting Ready To Release ‘Portal’ Hardware That Will Mine Your Home 24×7 For Video And Sound

by Geoffrey Grider


In George Orwell’s 1984, the oppressive rulers of Oceania use devices called telescreens to closely monitor and repress citizens.

"And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."Revelation 13:15-17 (KJV)
EDITOR'S NOTE: The Internet is filled with funny memes and videos of people asking their in-home 'personal assistants' like Alexa and Echo funny questions. But while you're chuckling over the next one you see posted, just remember that you're laughing as you watch the One World surveillance system that will eventually be known as the Mark Of The Beast coming to life in stages. Just as the Day Of The Lord is a period of time beginning from the Rapture of the Church to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ that culminates in an actual day, so the Mark Of The Beast is a system whose crown jewel will be an implantable mark. Facebook had 2.07 billion monthly active users as of September 30, 2017, and now they want in-home surveillance. Hey, Alexa...are you ready for what comes next?
Now Facebook looks set to follow in the Party’s footsteps by putting its own firm’s microphones and cameras into people’s homes. The social network is planning to release its first ever piece of consumer hardware which will be called Portal and cost a whopping $499 (£368), a website called Cheddar has claimed.
The device will feature a 15 inch screen, a wide-angle camera with facial recognition and microphones to allow voice control. It’s expected to use facial recognition to allow people to log into their accounts without having to type in passwords and will be dedicated to video chat. The gadget has been designed by a shadowy Facebook department called Building 8 that’s also working on mind-reading technology.
‘Rather than position the device as a smart assistant akin to Amazon’s Echo speakers, Facebook intends to pitch Portal as a way for families and friends to stay connected through video chatting and other social features,’ the website wrote.
‘Facebook plans a formal product introduction in early May at its annual developer conference and hopes to ship the device in the second half of 2018.’
Apart from the potentially grave privacy implications of letting Facebook’s cameras and microphones into your home, there’s another clear fault with the gadget: it costs almost as much as an iPhone or iPad but probably does a lot less.
Although Facebook has not officially commented, Andrew Bosworth, the company’s vice president of augmented and virtual reality, wrote on Twitter: ‘Can’t comment on speculation but can confirm it’s going to be an exciting year for AR/VR’. source

Prophecy Update News Headlines - News That Matters - 1/12/18

Monday, 8 January 2018



Schools are to be issued with the first national guidelines on transgender pupils in March. The guidelines are being drafted by the Equalities and Human Rights Commission (ECHR). They are reported to suggest that pupils should be allowed to change gender “at any time”, and that parents and pupils should refer to children by their “preferred pronoun”. It is reported that cross-dressing should be allowed and that a pupil’s chosen gender may be kept confidential from their parents. Tim Dieppe comments on the implications of such guidelines.
The Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is planning to issue the first national guidelines on transgender pupils for schools in March.
Pupils should be allowed to change gender “at any time”
Education Executive reports that:
“On request from a pupil, with the support of their parents, the school is able to change the name and gender of a pupil on their systems at any time, including sending these details to exam boards and requesting that staff and pupils use their new name and preferred pronoun.”
Currently, in law, you can’t legally change your gender until you are 18 years old. A person needs to demonstrate that they have suffered gender dysphoria and lived in their ‘new gender’ for two years, and intend to continue doing so until death.  This guidance proposes that children should have the right to self-identify their gender with no medical consultation and no cooling off period.
Staff and pupils should use “preferred pronoun”
The guidance then proposes that staff and pupils be required to refer to pupils by their “preferred pronoun”.  This amounts to state-enforced lying about who the pupil is. The article refers to Christian Legal Centre client Joshua Sutcliffe who was disciplined as a teacher for ‘misgendering’ a pupil.
“Whilst the very recent case of a teacher being summoned to a disciplinary for ‘misgendering’ seems frightening, this was seemingly because of his Christian belief that, ‘…it is not unreasonable to call someone a girl if they were born a girl’, rather than an accidental slip of the tongue.”
The prospect of pupils and teachers being disciplined for ‘misgendering’ is indeed frightening. ‘Gender’ is not a social construct or something that we can choose at will. It is biologically determined. Boys and girls should be taught to respect the differences between the sexes and not to try to change them.
Cross-dressing “should be allowed”
The article reports:
“Pupils should be allowed to wear the uniform of the gender that they identify with and schools should also offer a ‘gender neutral’ option, such as allowing all pupils to wear trousers. There are no issues under child protection or safeguarding that prohibit transgender pupils from using the changing room or toilet which reflects their gender identity – the child should be consulted as to their preference. It would be good practice now to assign some changing areas or toilets as unisex in case this is a pupil’s preferred choice.”
It is a fantasy to suggest that “there are no issues under child protection or safeguarding” surrounding people changing gender and using different changing areas. The most rebellious boys in secondary schools are realising that they can cause considerable trouble by telling the school to recognise them as girls. They then get to cause disruption in girls’ changing areas, breaching privacy and upsetting girls in the process. Sexual assaults are likely to emerge from a policy like this. What happens if a pupil refuses to identify as male or female? Should the school provide bespoke toilets for every possible gender identification?
‘Don’t tell parents’
Under the subject of ‘privacy’ It is reported that:
“As with all pupils, transgender pupils have a right to privacy and schools must only disclose the pupil’s transgender status to parents, carers and other members of the school community where there is a legal obligation to do so, or where the pupil has given permission.”
This raises the prospect of children identifying as one gender at school and another at home without parental permission. This seriously undermines parental rights. The Christian Legal Centre has already seen a case where parents feared that their daughtercould be taken into foster care unless they allowed her to identify as a boy.
Sports competitions
What happens when boys identify as girls and enter girls’ sports competitions? This is clearly unfair and dangerous to girls. Already we are seeing biological men winning women’s competitions unfairly in the adult world. In schools, the guidance will suggest:
“In PE lessons teachers should take account of size, physical strength and ability in any event; therefore a common-sense approach should be taken as to whether a pupil should have the option of which gender they participate with. Representing the school in the gender they identify in should not be an issue if there is not a physical advantage; however this would need to be considered on a case-by-case basis with the relevant sporting body.”
This is a fudge. Clearly some biological boys identifying as girls will claim discrimination if they are not allowed to compete as girls. The only fair way is to split sports by biological gender and not to allow people to cheat by changing gender.
Defining issue of our time
Carys Mosely has written that “transgenderism is the defining issue of our time, as it concerns our very nature as male and female.”
The good news is that opposition to transgenderism is now gaining traction in society and in politics. Government plans to allow adults to change legal gender at will have now been delayed in response to growing criticism. Recent news items have highlighted some of the problems involved, such as with transgender women being allowed to use a ladies swimming pond. In another case, a woman who requested a female nurse to perform a cervical smear test was “embarrassed and distressed” when a person with stubble and a deep voice arrived to perform the procedure.
Christians need to stand firm on the scientific and theological truths about gender in order to protect women and children. We should not capitulate to state-enforced indoctrination or tyranny. While opposition is growing to what most people clearly regard as a step too far in political correctness, we need to call on the government to abandon their plans to allow gender change at will. Christian Concern intends to continue to keep up the pressure in the media and in the courts on this issue in 2018.
