AI Robots That Think For Themselves: Our World is Not Heeding the Warnings

Before Stephen Hawking, well known atheist and physicist died, he warned the world of the dangers of continuing to build AI robots who would eventually think for themselves.  Dr. Hawking said that this would endanger humans on earth.

It seems that the fears of Dr. Hawking are now being realized.

Facebook AI bots

Over a year ago, I read an article which stated that Facebook disabled two of their AI bots because they found them communicating with one another and actually writing new code.

Facebook AI Creates Its Own Language In Creepy Preview Of Our Potential Future

Facebook shut down an artificial intelligence engine after developers discovered that the AI had created its own unique language that humans can’t understand. Researchers at the Facebook AI Research Lab (FAIR) found that the chatbots had deviated from the script and were communicating in a new language developed without human input. It is as concerning as it is amazing – simultaneously a glimpse of both the awesome and horrifying potential of AI.

Artificial Intelligence is not sentient—at least not yet. It may be someday, though – or it may approach something close enough to be dangerous. Ray Kurzweil warned years ago about the technological singularity. The Oxford dictionary defines “the singularity” as, “A hypothetical moment in time when artificial intelligence and other technologies have become so advanced that humanity undergoes a dramatic and irreversible change.”

To be clear, we aren’t really talking about whether or not Alexa is eavesdropping on your conversations, or whether Siri knows too much about your calendar and location data. There is a massive difference between a voice-enabled digital assistant and an artificial intelligence. These digital assistant platforms are just glorified web search and basic voice interaction tools. The level of “intelligence” is minimal compared to a true machine learning artificial intelligence. Siri and Alexa can’t hold a candle to IBM’s Watson.

Scientists and tech luminaries, including Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and Steve Wozniak have warned that AI could lead to tragic unforeseen consequences. Eminent physicist Stephen Hawking cautioned in 2014 that AI could mean the end of the human race. “It would take off on its own and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.”

Why is this scary? Think SKYNET from Terminator, or WOPR from War Games. Our entire world is wired and connected. An artificial intelligence will eventually figure that out – and figure out how to collaborate and cooperate with other AI systems. Maybe the AI will determine that mankind is a threat, or that mankind is an inefficient waste of resources – conclusions that seems plausible from a purely logical perspective.

Machine learning and artificial intelligence have phenomenal potential to simplify, accelerate, and improve many aspects of our lives. Computers can ingest and process massive quantities of data and extract patterns and useful information at a rate exponentially faster than humans, and that potential is being explored and developed around the world.

I am not saying the sky is falling. I am not saying we need to pull the plug on all machine learning and artificial intelligence and return to a simpler, more Luddite existence. We do need to proceed with caution, though. We need to closely monitor and understand the self-perpetuating evolution of an artificial intelligence, and always maintain some means of disabling it or shutting it down. If the AI is communicating using a language that only the AI knows, we may not even be able to determine why or how it does what it does, and that might not work out well for mankind. – source

Brethren, I read today a new article which is even more alarming. I want to share this with you.

Robot that thinks for itself from scratch brings forward rise the self-aware machines

The rise of “self-aware” robots has come a major step closer following the invention of a machine capable of thinking for itself from scratch, scientists have said.

Engineers at Columbia University claim to have smashed one of the biggest barriers in the field of robotics after a mechanical arm, which had not been programmed with any instructions, began performing practical tasks after just a few hours.

The team said this is the first time a robot has shown the ability to “imagine itself”, thereby working out what its purpose is and how to perform it.

Until now, some experts had pointed to the failure to achieve this as evidence that machines would never be able to develop their own intelligence in the complex way that humans do.

The robotic arm was programmed with no knowledge of physics, geometry or motor dynamics.

It spent approximately 35 hours moving about at random, however intensive machine-learning computing was going on during this time.

Eventually, the robot was able to understand its own dimensions and capabilities.

It then began successfully performing exercises, picking up objects and placing them elsewhere.

Professor Hod Lipson, who leads the Creative Machines lab, where the research was carried out, said: “This is perhaps what a newborn child does in its crib, as it learns what it is,” he says.

“We conjecture that this advantage may have also been the evolutionary origin of self-awareness in humans.

“While our robot’s ability to imagine itself is still crude compared to humans, we believe that this ability is on the path to machine self-awareness.”

The self-modeling robot was also used for other tasks, such as writing text using a marker.

Meanwhile to test whether the self-model could detect damage to itself, the researchers 3D-printed a deformed part to simulate damage and the robot was able to detect the change and re-train its self-model.

The new self-model enabled the robot to resume its pick-and-place tasks with little loss of performance.

“Self-awareness will lead to more resilient and adaptive systems, but also implies some loss of control,” the authors warn.

“It’s a powerful technology, but it should be handled with care.” The study is published in the journal Science Robotics. source

I do believe that artificial intelligence will be used by Antichrist during the Tribulation.

What a statement on the EVIL in our world when full term babies are slaughtered like cattle, and the Left cheer for that right.  And at the same time, universities and scientists are spending billions of dollars on AI robots.

Who would have thought that this would be happening even 20 years ago?

Pray pray pray……….Pray for your lost friends and loved ones. PRAY for our government leaders.

And PRAY that our Lord Jesus comes SOON for His bride!

We Are Made in the Image of God: AI Robots Are Made in the Image of Sinful Beings

Every day I read more and more about the advancement of AI Robots.  Scientists believe that they are very close to programming the “bots” so they are sentient.

Of course, the goal has always been to create “Sophia” type AI robots which are hardly distinguishable from human beings.

China is using an AI bot as a news anchor:

The Creation of Man and Woman

 “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth” (Genesis 1:26).

“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul”  (Genesis 2: 7).

But Adam and Eve rebelled against their Creator.  God told Adam that he could eat from any tree in the Garden except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Even was deceived by Satan and she ate.  Adam sinned willfully and ate of that tree when Eve offered it.  Then suddenly Adam and Eve were aware of their nakedness.

The Garden had been paradise. Adam and Eve walked with God in that garden.

Now, cast out of the Garden, God’s creation of the man and woman entered a world of sin which had begun with them.

If God Created Adam and Eve, why did sin enter them?

From gotquestions.org

Question: “If God knew that Adam and Eve would sin, why did He create them?”

Answer: The Bible says that God created all things—including us—for Himself. He is glorified in His creation. “From him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen” (Romans 11:36).

It may be hard to see how Adam and Eve’s falling into sin could bring glory to God. In fact, some might even wonder why, if God knew ahead of time all the trouble they would cause, He made them in the first place.

God is omniscient (Psalm 139:1–6), and He knows the future (Isaiah 46:10). So He definitely knew that Adam and Eve would sin. But He created them anyway and gave them a free will with which they chose to sin.

We must carefully note that Adam and Eve’s falling into sin does not mean that God is the author of sin or that He tempted them to sin (James 1:13). But the fall does serve the purpose of God’s overall plan for creation and mankind.

If we consider what some theologians call the “meta-narrative” (or overarching storyline) of Scripture, we see that biblical history can be roughly divided into three main sections: 1) paradise (Genesis 1—2); 2) paradise lost (Genesis 3Revelation 20); and 3) paradise regained (Revelation 21—22). By far the largest part of the narrative is devoted to the transition from paradise lost to paradise regained. At the center of this meta-narrative is the cross, which was planned from the very beginning (Acts 2:23).

Reading Scripture carefully, we are led to the following conclusions:

1. The fall of mankind was foreknown by God.

2. The crucifixion of Christ, the atonement for God’s elect, was foreordained by God.

3. All people will one day glorify God (Psalm 86:9), and God purposes “to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ” (Ephesians 1:10).

God’s purpose was to create a world in which His glory could be manifest in all its fullness. The glory of God is the overarching goal of creation. In fact, it is the overarching goal of everything He does. The universe was created to display God’s glory (Psalm 19:1), and the wrath of God is revealed against those who fail to glorify God (Romans 1:18–25). The world that best displays the glory of God is the world we have—a world that was allowed to fall, a world that was redeemed, a world that will be restored to its original perfection.

God’s wrath and God’s mercy display the riches of His glory, but we cannot see either without the fall of mankind. We would never know grace if we had never needed grace. Therefore, all of God’s plan—including the fall, election, redemption, and atonement of mankind—serves the purpose of glorifying God. When man fell into sin, God’s mercy was immediately displayed in God’s not killing him on the spot. God’s grace was immediately evident in the covering He provided for their shame (Genesis 3:21). God’s patience and forbearance were later on display as mankind fell deeper and deeper into sin. God’s justice and wrath were on display when He sent the flood, and God’s mercy and grace were again demonstrated when He saved Noah and his family. God’s holy wrath and perfect justice will be seen in the future when He deals with Satan once and for all (Revelation 20:7–10).

God’s glory is also revealed in His love (1 John 4:16). Our knowledge of God’s love comes from the Person and saving work of Jesus Christ in this fallen world. “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him” (1 John 4:9). Had God decided not to create Adam and Eve, based on His knowledge of their fall—or had He made them automatons with no volition—we would never have truly known what love is.

The ultimate exhibition of God’s glory was at the cross where His wrath, justice, and mercy met. The righteous judgment of all sin was executed at the cross, and God’s grace was on display in His Son’s words, “Father, forgive them” (Luke 23:34). God’s love and grace are manifest in those whom He has saved (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8–10). In the end, God will be glorified as His chosen people worship Him for all eternity with the angels, and the wicked will also glorify God as His righteousness results in the eternal punishment of unrepentant sinners (Philippians 2:11). Without the fall of Adam and Eve, we would never know God’s justice, grace, mercy, or love.

Some raise the objection that God’s foreknowledge and foreordination of the fall damages man’s freedom. In other words, if God created mankind with full knowledge of the impending fall into sin, how can man be responsible for his sin? The best answer to that question can be found in the Westminster Confession of Faith:

“God, from all eternity, did, by the most wise and holy counsel of his own will, freely, and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass; yet so, as thereby neither is God the author of sin, nor is violence offered to the will of the creatures; nor is the liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established” (WFC, III.1)

In other words, God ordains future events in such a way that our freedom and the working of secondary causes (e.g., laws of nature) are preserved. Theologians call this “concurrence.” God’s sovereign will flows concurrently with our free choices in such a way that our free choices always result in the carrying out of God’s will (by “free” we mean that our choices are not coerced by outside influences). It’s a complex interaction of wills and choices, but the Creator God can handle any amount of complexity.

God foresaw Adam and Eve’s fall. He created them anyway, in His own image, to bring glory to Himself. They were given freedom to make choices. Even though they chose to disobey, their choice became the means by which God’s ultimate will was carried out and by which His full glory will be seen. – source

Brethren, God foreknew the fall of Adam and Eve. God is all-knowing (omniscient) and He knows the history of mankind from the very beginning to the end. As it says in the gotquestions article, God foreknew:

  • The Fall
  • The Crucifixtion
  • The Day when all the world would glorify Him

The Creations of AI Robots

The scientists who are feverishly working on their AI creations can NOT see the future.  This in and of itself is very problematic.

I would assume that almost all (maybe all) of the robot building scientists are not believers. They are unregenerate sinners.  Their god is science, and they believe that we who worship God and trust Him in our lives are weak and gullible.

As they program their robots, they are uploading massive amounts of data into the “brains” of these machines. But let’s not forget that these same programmers are unrepentant sinners.  How can they not impart their biases and even their hatred of certain groups of people who do not share in their beliefs?

The scientists are working on the emotional side of data in order to make the AI bots more “human-like.”  As the saying goes “Garbage  in –  Garbage out. If a globalist is programming a bot, do you not think that the opinions placed in the AI machines will mirror those of their ‘creators’?

When God created Adam and Eve, it was the beginning of a story of which the Lord knew every detail.  It was His plan of the redemption of sinful men and women, and how many would be redeemed through the death, burial and resurrection of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Rebellion against God comes in many forms

Along with AI robots, there are other obvious forms of rebellion in our world today:

  • CERN   (man wanting to recreate “Creation” which they call the Big Bang
  • NASA   (now has caused holes in our Sun in their unquenchable desire to      understand outer space
  • GLOBALISM   (setting the stage for Antichrist)
  • TRANSGENDERISM  AND LGBTQ AGENDAS  (telling God that He makes mistakes when He creates people
  • HATRED FOR ISRAEL   (this hatred comes directly from Satan)

We could add many other endeavors of mankind to the above list.

Brethren, I am simply attempting to show the reader the dangers of AI and where these scientists are trying to take our world.  Even atheist Stephen Hawking (who died recently) warned about the frightening consequences of robots ultimately becoming a menace in our society.

We should be praying and watching.

That’s what watchmen do!

AI Robot Running for Mayor in Japan Pledges “Fair Opportunities For All”

If someone had told me just 5 years ago that a robot would be running for office in a country such as Japan, I would have immediately called it Fake News.

But it’s real brethren.  This event is opening wide the door to AI robots being considered equal to human beings. And trust me when I say this:  These bots will NOT be content to be considered “equal” with humans.  They will want to rule us.

I’ve written in other articles concerning AI bots, that top scientists in the secular world have sternly warned of the dangers of giving these machines power over human beings.  Stephen Hawking, who recently died, was at the forefront of the voices against these robots having power over us.

From express.co.uk 

A ROBOT has been nominated to run for Mayor of Tokyo in a world first that see the machine promising to be “fair and balanced” to all its constituents in a major breakthrough for Artificial Intelligence (AI).

The robot is campaigning under the slogan “Artificial Intelligence will change Tama city”.

The election in the west of the Japanese capital features high-ranking local politicians, as well as the robotic candidate competing against its human counterparts.

The campaign process is no different either: the district has had posters with smiling faces of the party leaders plastered across it, with the usual slogans promising positive change for all residents.

In line with regular election propaganda, Michihito Matsuda has been branded on vans, with posters spouting its inspirational messages for improved politics.

According to Japanese news website Otaquest, in an attempt to offer “fair and balanced opportunities for everyone”, the AI mayor would analyse petitions put forward to the council, breaking down the pros and cons and statistically dictating what effect they would have.

The robot can also take in the dialogue and wishes of residents before calculating the best way to implement them.

Finally, the robotic candidate can rationally compromise when conflicts arise between those residents.

But citizens would not however vote for the AI Mayor, as robots cannot technically run for office, but will instead vote for the human Michihito Matsuda with the idea.

Mr Matsuda said: “Tama New Town was the most advanced city in Japan 40 years ago.

“As it stands, the ageing population will only continue to grow, prompting a need for change in the current administration.

“Let artificial intelligence determine policies by gathering city data and we can create clearly defined politics.”

The robot’s bid to become the world’s first artificial mayor is being financed by two men with links to two of the biggest technology companies in the world – Tetsuo Matsumoto, vice president of global software provider SoftBank, and former Google Japan employee Norio Murakami.

This is not the first time a bizarre candidate has stood for office. In 1938, a brown mule ran for a Republican precinct seat in Milton, Washington.

A cat named Stubbs was elected Mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska in 1997 and even an attempt to run for office was made by a potted ficus tree. – source

Brethren, I do not consider this to be a “joke.”  This is the beginning of something so bizarre and scary – it’s mind boggling.

Share the Gospel with the lost.  God knows whose hearts have not been so hardened, and who may still be saved!

Shalom b’Yeshua

Biblical Creation Vs. Creation of AI Robots: Satan’s Plot For End of Days

When God created the heavens and the earth, He then created Adam and Eve.  He gave them free volition of will.  Of course, Adam and Eve’s ability to choose between obeying God’s rules or rebelling and going their own way, is what is called “Original Sin.” And of course, Satan was directly involved in the deception of Eve.  

God’s motivation for creating Adam and Eve was born out of love. I believe that He created them so that they would come into a relationship with Him. He had only loving and gracious thoughts towards them. It must have broken his heart when He had to send them from the Garden of Eden for their disobedience.

Now, we know that God being omniscient knew that they would sin. He sees the beginning to the end. He knew that He would ultimately send His only begotten Son to that Cross to offer redemption to mankind. He wanted to be reconciled with those who understand that they are sinners and that they need Him.

The Bride

God also in his omniscience, knew that one day there would be a people who would be the body of Christ – the bride of Christ. God’s plan for us is a perfect plan.

He could have created beings who did not have free volition of will; but those would be more like robots. He would have programmed them to never sin, and there would have been no need for Jesus to come and pay with His life for the sins of the world.  But God did not do that. 

“Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins”  (Hebrews 9:22).

God is perfect.  His plan is perfect. And those of us who have repented and trust Him, will spend eternity with him.  We have come into the relationship with Him that I believe He wanted with Adam and Eve.  I believe that the Garden of Eden was heaven.

Human creators of AI Robots

Now fallen men have decided that it’s time for them to “create.”  As I said, God’s motivation for His creation of Adam and Eve was His love for them. Not so for the AI robot creations of man.  Our technology has brought us to a place which is unprecedented in the history of mankind.

Fallen and sinful men are “creating” AI beings which very closely resemble us.  Their motivation for creating AI robots is not born from a loving heart.  It is born from a prideful heart and a lust for power and money.

These creations fashioned from the hands of men have more intelligence than  any person in the flesh.  This has happened because these AI robots have vast knowledge which has been programmed into them.  Remember the saying “Garbage in – garbage out? I am not saying that the wealth of information and history programmed into these AI bots is bad in and of itself.

New World Order

The AI bots are not just being fed data (information). They are also programmed to think like their creators!  I keep reading how these amazing created AI bots will help us in the quest for a NWO and to solve the problems of what the scientists call “Mother earth.” If that doesn’t scare a child of God, I don’t know what will.

Communicating with one another

Now it is found that these created AI bots are actually communicating with one another. In the process of this communication, they are writing their own programs. This is even startling the companies who are at the forefront of this technology.

The tree of the knowledge of good and evil is coming into play once more (figuratively), but in a very unique and frightening way. This time the characters are certainly not made after the image of God. He did not create them.  Fallen man created these potentially destructive beings (if we shall call them that) and it seems that their “Fall from Grace” technically speaking, has ramifications that their creators never factored into the creation of these beings.

And unlike God,  fallen man has no idea what to do to “redeem” the AI bots.

GOD IS GOD AND WE ARE NOT

Certainly the Lord allowed mankind to acquire the technology to make these “beings”  and I believe that armies of these Robots may be being built as we speak.

I have been thinking about this for months. Though the ages, man has attempted to be like God.  The Tower of Babel comes to mind – even the Space Race is man’s attempt to figure out the Universe. They deny the existence of God as they peer into the heavens which He created!

And now CERN is attempting to open portals which should be left alone.  Isn’t it interesting that their mascot is none other that Shiva – a Hindu goddess who is actually one of three Hindu gods who are part of their “unholy” trinity. This is no accident or coincidence. It speaks volumes about the character (or lack of) of the people who are involved with this very satanic operation. They are lost and need Christ.

I wrote an article about “Kali” (another Hindu Goddess of destruction), when she was projected on the Empire State building in NYC

“The Calculated Decision to Project the image of the Hindu demon “Kali” on the Empire State building”    < Click here to read

Satanic Spirits (Demons) are always at work

Is there a way for these AI robots to be inhabited by demons?  I don’t know the answer to that, but it is a frightening thought.

Mankind is so intrigued with evil.  This has been the case throughout our history.  It seems that the European Union and the U.N. are particularly drawn to Luciferian worship.  It can be seen clearly in this Illuminati style celebration of the the opening of the Gotthard tunnel in Switzerland:

Anyway Brethren, I just wanted to share my thoughts on the parallels that I see between our God who IS the Creator of heaven and earth; and man’s “creation” of AI robots, which many have said is so dangerous. There have even been warnings from the secular community  – top scientists who are basically telling these robotic companies that they are playing with fire.  And they are.

We need not worry.  He is with us and told us that He would always be with us!

Knowing that the Lord is with me at all times, and looking forward to the Rapture certainly is keeping my sanity intact during these end days.

Shalom b’Yeshua
