It’s Also Very, Very Real.

It’s like you can’t make this stuff up fast enough — the reality always outpaces the fiction nowadays. “The Pentagon’s New Algorithmic Warfare Cell Gets Its First Mission: Hunt ISIS.” And don’t you think that ISIS is going to fight back — hard — and use algorithmic warfare too? Count on it. And the Russians and especially the Chinese are probably better equipped than we are, although here in Silicon Valley we conveniently forget it because we are addicted to news being good for technology. In a very few years, you will all see how screwed up that really is, because we’re going to be eliminated as a species. AI is that good — and that bad. Both are true. So the fact that you can ignore and talk politics just floors me. It’s truly funny, in a comical way, except it’s also very, very real.
