The march of technological innovation is agnostic to what we might be comfortable with. In a world of heightening geopolitical stress, the capacity for deep fakes to become totally prevalent is non-trivial. If there was declining faith in the trustworthiness of media coverage before, that is only going to deteriorate in future.
This article from extremetech covering the development of swarms of drones acting in concert is also worthy of consideration. Here is a section:
The swarm has another interesting and somewhat alarming capability. The designers showed the algorithm can follow a human target through the environment with incredible accuracy. If one robot loses sight of the target because they walk behind a tree, another will be able to maintain visual contact. That means the first robot still knows where the target is and can pick up again on the other side of the obstruction. With more development, this technology could make it virtually impossible for a person to evade the swarm. What happens then is up to the operator of said drone swarm.
This is what the future will look like but the war in Ukraine has also been a bonanza for drone manufacturers. They are the ultimate throw away device and future wars will largely be fought by machines.Click HERE to subscribe to Fuller Treacy Money Back to top
