Cyberpunk Radio #133 - Drones, Famine, Cannibalism.

2013-04-19 :: defwheezer@mental-escher.net (Carl Brown)

Drones in your colon- the all pervasive surveillance society provides reassuring oversight of most public areas in both RL and VR. Meanwhile GovernoCorportate entities accumulate, collate, analyze and resell every aspect of human-machine interaction regardless of whether it is active (Internet, TV, Credit Card, etc.) or passive (CCTV and other image capture devices, for instance). Do you feel safe and well served yet? When do you realize that the corporate media knows how to manipulate you, and in fact has countless resources to recursively tweek their "messages" until you respond appropriately and remain compliant consumers.



Global climate change and food species depletion induce famines and displacements, eventually leaving survivors to survive as cannibals.

Famine and cannabalism sweep the world as food sources are depleted through over fishing or destroyed by changing climate patterns. GMO crops are mixtures of insect, plants, bacteria, viruses- incorporating into humans and the environment. When all the food is gone, the only meal remaining will be each other. Can you taste the (human) bacon?

Cyberpunk Radio SF #132 - The Yum Yum Club

2012-08-12 :: defwheezer@mental-escher.net (Carl Brown)

Pluri Media Group’s Venture The Yum Yum Club. It is San Francisco 's top companionship club for business traveler’s located in the infamous Pleasure District. It is modern and gleaming with about 100 scantily clad young women parading around in exotic G-strings and lingerie. Entry is 10,000 Credits for an all inclusive service.


The club offers a full range of companionship services from simple chat to massages, lap dancing and intercourse in plush surroundings. The Yum Yum is a unique companionship club licensed by the city council, and it is staffed not by humans, but by androids- or more specifically, Sexoids.

This situation came about due to an increase in human trafficking in the sex industry in the twenty first Century which was becoming unsustainable, combined with an increase in incurable STI's in the city especially HIV which over the last decade has mutated and is resistant to many vaccines and preventive medicines. San Francisco's tourist industry is built on an image of sex and drugs. The council was worried that if the pleasure and vice districts were to close, it would have a detrimental effect on the city's brand and tourism industry, as it seemed unimaginable for the city not to have a sex industry. Sex tourism is a key driver for stag parties and the convention industry.


The Yum Yum offers a range of sexual gods and goddesses of different ethnicity’s, body shapes, ages, languages and sexual features. The club was for the fifth year in a row, in 2015 was voted the world's best massage parlor by the UN World Tourism Organization. The club has won numerous technology and innovation awards including the prestigious ISO iRobot SEX award. The most popular model is Laybia, a slender Asian, an exotically innocent species who is popular with the more upscale clientele.

The tourists who use the services of Yum Yum are guaranteed a wonderful and thrilling experience, as all the androids are programmed to perform every service and satisfy every desire. All androids are made of bacteria resistant Symtex flesh fiber and are flushed for human fluids between use, therefore guaranteeing no Sexual Transmitted Disease's are transferred between clients. The impact of Yum Yum club and similar establishments in San Francisco has transformed the companionship industry, alleviating all health and human trafficking problems.

The only social issues surrounding the club is the resistance from human sex workers who say they can't compete on price and quality, therefore forcing many of them to close their shop windows. All in all, the regeneration of San Francisco's sex industry has been about the success of the new breed of companionship worker; and a new flood of upscale clients seeking ever more fanciful company.

Cyberpunk Radio SF # 127 - Corporate

2011-04-15 :: defwheezer@mental-escher.net (Carl Brown)


Corporatism is about the cult of the self.

It is about personal enrichment and profit as the sole aim of human existence.

And those who do not conform are pushed aside.

It churns out stunted human products, lacking the capacity and vocabulary to challenge the assumptions and structures of the corporate state.

It funnels them into a caste system of drones and systems managers.

It transforms a democratic state into a feudal system of corporate masters and serfs.

Corporations deflect attention from the theft of billion in wages, savings and earnings among American workers and a landscape where one in six workers is out of work.

The speculators on Wall Street looted the U.S. Treasury.
They stymied any kind of regulation.
They have avoided criminal charges.
They are stripping basic social services.
And now they are demanding to run our schools and universities.

The truly educated become conscious.
They become self-aware.
They do not lie to themselves.
They do not pretend that fraud is moral or that corporate greed is good.
They do not claim that the demands of the marketplace can morally justify the hunger of children or denial of medical care to the sick.
They do not throw 6 million families from their homes as the cost of doing business.

Thought is a dialogue with one’s inner self.
Those who think ask questions, questions those in authority do not want asked.
They remember who we are, where we come from and where we should go.
They remain eternally skeptical and distrustful of power.
And they know that this moral independence is the only protection from the radical evil that results from collective unconsciousness.

The capacity to think is the only bulwark against any centralized authority that seeks to impose mindless obedience.

There is a huge difference between teaching people what to think and teaching them how to think.

Those who are endowed with a moral conscience refuse to commit crimes, even those sanctioned by the corporate state, because they do not in the end want to live with criminals—themselves.

As Socrates Tweeted recently: “It is better to be at odds with the whole world than, being one, to be at odds with myself”.

Cyberpunk Radio SF # 126 - Global Meat

2011-03-27 :: defwheezer@mental-escher.net (Carl Brown)

Post Peak Oil Global Awakening. Social Media on ubiquitous internet and suddenly there is a global human awakening against neocolonialist governments of the a fading US hegemony.

Most of humanity is now informationally activated, socially conscious and politically interactive. There are only small pockets of humanity in the remotest corners of the globe that are not aware of the socio-political strife so ubiquitous in the world today.

We live in an cyberpunk age in which mankind is developing a Hive consciousness to an unprecedented degree, and it is this condition which is fostering international turmoil.

That turmoil is from political awakening- vast masses of the world are no longer politically neutered, as they have been throughout much of recorded history.

When the People become Hive Mind, they are a powerful global force indeed.

Cyberpunks 2011- the neo technorati, living a greyHat underground lifestyle. Global Depression and daily angst results in low consumption; when an animal is sick, it stops eating. FEAR Inc. is effectively subduing the masses; consumption is again rising. Leaks are a nuisance and necessitate more stringent information control; individual personal IP address registration to quell civil disobedience inspired DDOS network disruptions. The US government may have trouble extraditing suspected criminals because the US is known to use torture against detainees in frank violation of International Law. The trans national, trans media Julian Assange and his Wikileaks compatriots have the courage and the techspertise to enable the exposing of Corruption and deceit at the highest levels of both Corporations and Governments.

Edward Bernays said in his 1928 book Propaganda that, “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”

The techniques are increasing in their sophistication over time as the mind scientists that serve the empire continue to discover scientific breakthroughs as to how the human brain functions, learns, retains information, and behaves. The most effective brainwashing techniques are used on the most successful propaganda networks. Examine the music bed that lies low during the fright night scope of the second. It’s spooky. Observe the graphics with the music. They’re glitzy and flashing. Like the monkey that is attracted to shiny objects, it’s our monkey hand that controls the remote to search for entertainment when the proper amount of glamor catches their attention. Most importantly, notice the repetition behind the lies that the politicians and their corporate media groupies tell us. You see, the unimaginable fallacies are created as ‘truth’ not because it’s logical or provable, but because of the broken record technique. No matter how ridiculous the lie, it’s repeated often enough that the brain doesn’t know the difference between reality and nursery rhymes. This technique is under estimated in its ability to allow the puppeteers to hypnotize millions of people. Instead of “Fair and balanced” it’s “We say it enough times, and you believe it.”

The blocks of programming that are universally accepted parallel the shift to craft our entire lives towards the factory’s bell and the illusion of time. This is the creation of the hive mind. The hive mind is result of massive brainwashing to the general public. Everyone shares the same thoughts, goals, knowledge and understanding. A hive mind society gears itself towards conformity and ignores diversity while masqueraded as the road to utopia in mainstream television. Network programming, whether it’s the news or drama, is geared towards artificially creating your world and reality. With the proper amount of entertainment and sensationalism, we may even be living our lives through the television set. Many anchors and actors are beautiful and research shows that attractive people are usually perceived as trust worthy. While the real news rolls quickly by on the bottom of your screen, the anchor is selling you on the idea of having your very own police state hell hole right here in your local jurisdiction, or how 2 sports opposing teams chased around on a court for 2 hours in attempt to score points means something to you. No education, no information, SPIN. Today the media represents a tool of brainwashing and indoctrination that is utilized on behalf of the owners interests.

Cyberpunk Radio SF - #119 - Distributed AdHoc Networks

2009-08-15 :: defwheezer@mental-escher.net (Carl Brown)




Distributed mobile ad-hoc networks, going "Netless"; constructed using small wireless devices with built-in storage. These devices, worn by Faction operatives, swap data between other devices when they are in close enough physical proximity. Rather than rely on cell towers for connectivity, ad-hoc networks employs a large amount of low power antennas scattered around a defined area, relaying data within this mobile grid. The network authentication and data transmission are encrypted; Deep Cyper making these ad hoc networks relatively free from corporate and government monitoring and control. The existence of cheap materials and components has allowed a mass distribution of nodes, and their numbers are growing exponentially.


Hiding behind anonymous email and Web accounts, our Factions put porn-addicted Internet users to work for them.

Specifically, these Factions, and the armies of computers they control, pay in porn to decode the scrambled letters many Internet sites now use to prevent computers from generating spam or signing up for fake Web accounts that can be harvested for nefarious purposes. Called "captcha," it's essentially a test that's easy for a human to complete, but difficult or impossible for a computer to do.

So instead of wasting our own precious processing cycles trying to descramble the jumbled letters, our Faction computers farm out the work to the millions of round-the-clock porn users. One program takes the form of a virtual stripper "game," in which a sexy avatar offers to remove another garment for each "task" the player completes. The user completes the captcha for the machine to plug in at one location on the Internet, and at another—like a chicken head pecking at a knob, the human gets his pellet of porn.

Enterprise architecture: The god’s-eye view of systems and infrastructure. This effectively gives us a god’s-eye view of an enterprise, allowing for the mapping, visualization and analysis of all transactions, interactions, systems, processes and personnel in the entirety of a given business or agency. Our sophisticated enterprise architecture software for example, examines all of the transactions taking place across a financial institution in real time and examine that data for possible money laundering operations or rogue traders. Our software can also detect and identify insider trading (such as that noted leading up to the 9/11 attacks in the US).

From the the White House to the FBI, FAA, and the boardroom of Microsoft, IBM and ATT, some of the best-secured organizations in the world, running the most protected servers housing the most sensitive data welcomed a relatively secretive organization into their midst. P-tech (a multi-layered cut out front for the Pluri Media Group) was given keys to the cyber kingdom, to map the weaknesses and vulnerabilities, and to show how these exploits could be used for cyber terror.

"Cyber attacks subsided over the weekend and Web sites previously under siege were working normally yesterday." Authorities were busy analyzing “zombie” computers that had been infected with malicious code and had been the source of the crude distributed denial-of-service, or DDoS, attacks. Little did they know this was just another red herring used by Factions to probe and analyze government and corporate cyber attack response strategies.

Asymmetric tactics and network-centric warfare- information is our collective societal weapon of choice; software, radio frequencies and bandwidth are critical commodities; control of networks essential for effective propaganda delivery. The foremost challenge for our operatives in this new battle space environment is infiltrating command and control of the Information infrastructure.

Each of our Factions are nimble forces fielding powerful formations equipped with cutting-edge technologies. We will prevail and our global domination is assured.

2009-07-14 :: defwheezer@mental-escher.net (Carl Brown)



***************************

Updated 10 Jul 2009:

Declassified documentation:

Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot (EATR)

***************************

Original story:

The dramatic drop in violence in Iraq is due in large part to a secret program the U.S. military has used to kill terrorists, according to a new book by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward.

Pluri Media Group Breaking News: Here we reveal the secret weapon- information leaked from MILSIM; autonomous, self fueling robots, 'feeding' on a novel source of energy.

Robots need energy- fuel, to power CPUs and sensors (the robot nervous systems) as well as actuators (robotic muscles). Traditional batteries have never had satisfactory performance, particularly for extended duration continuous operation. Some sort of renewable energy is needed. Taking a lesson from biotic evolution, attempts have been made to harness energy in the environment like simple vegetation, where on board microbes are used to process the raw foraged matter into energy, with the waste discharged. Previous microbial powered fuel cells could only produce an open circuit voltage of not more than 0.75 volts, which is significantly less than needed for even modest industrial/military robotic applications. Recently though, bioengineered microbes have been developed that can rapidly and efficiently oxidize practically any organic material and produce open circuit voltage upwards of 0.5 kv, easily enough to power high mobility military assault bots for short bursts between foraging. Plants, plastics, oils and fat- all of these can be readily converted to and stored in fuel cells.

Combining a multi-tool maw for foraging with energy producing high efficiency oxidizer microbes to digest the raw matter, then converting it to stored energy, all coordinated through autonomous action via nuanced command and control circuits composed of primate neuronal cells superimposed on MILSYNC nano circuitry culmonates in the state of the art for fully self sustained battle ready robots. Since these constructs utilize organic matter for power, and are fully autonomous, they are deployed only to the most dangerous theaters of warfare. Fail safe systems are incorporated into the basal circuits; convergence algorithms based on Lyapunov stability theory. Generally, friendly fire hazards have been minimized- though military personnel are cautioned to avoid encounters with these bots due to the potential for fire control 'glitches' which could pose a 'potential lethal risk' to collaterals unfortunate enough to be interposed in projectile path.

In addition to the obvious risk of friendly fire from these autonomous battle bots, there is also a directive to field operatives to steer well clear of these bots during operations as they are programmed to autonomously scavenge for 'food'- anything containing "carbohydrate, protein, and/or oil" as input.

It is not yet know whether the neuronal control systems will self adapt to scavenge 'non standard' food sources such as larger animals, or even humans.

Cyberpunk Radio SF #118 - Botnets

2009-07-14 :: defwheezer@mental-escher.net (Carl Brown)



Bot net operatives have taken control of almost 12 million new IP addresses since January. The United States has the largest number of bot net-controlled machines, with 18 percent of the world total. The number of new zombie machines represents a 50 percent rise over last year. Researchers attribute the explosion to bot net controllers trying to wrestle complete control of the Internet.

A computer worm is a self-replicating computer program- painting the Net in shades of crimson and green; fade to grey.

It uses the Network to send copies of itself to other computers on the Network. Worms get code updates periodically, making them nearly impossible to disrupt. Infected machines query for updated commands through encrypted p2p networks- the Darknets. It appears the latest variant of Worms are part of a coordinated, distributed bot net of historic proportion. If the number of infected machines controlled by the bot net proceeds to increase at the current exponential rate, nearly 1/3 of all computers connected to the Internet will be infected by the end of next year.

Authorities claim the true purpose of this ubiquitous bot net remains a mystery. Until recently the bot net has been essentially dormant, reticent of purpose. Deep packet NSA intercepts from Darknet, decoded via MAGISTRAND using parallel SILKWORTH (pdf) supercomputer systems, hint at the nefarious goals of the Bot Net; encrypted data streams used by the botnet take time to decipher- weeks at a minimum, even for the NSA. This results in a equivalent time shift from the time stamp on the intercepted data.

This much is known. Recruitment of human agents into various Darknet Factions appears to be well under way. Additionally, some select Massively Multiplayer Online Role playing (MMOR) and First person shooter (FPS) computer games contain "back doors" that allow redirects from local (user) and game company servers to a slew of encrypted p2p Darknet network servers located in such far flung locations as North Korea, Russia, China, Pakistan, and Brazil. These darknet paths are then used to recruit new faction members through the video games themselves. IP addresses of these servers is changed through encrypted updates, making disruption impossible; a new, anarchistic government- DarkNet.

In this Darknet, much like in video games, level up achievements are awarded for outstanding performance. However, unlike in video games, achievement awards are based on real world actions- such as new member recruitment, development of underground operations involved in subversive or 'criminal' activity. A recently arrested member of a particularly notorious Darknet Faction, believed to be involved in sex worker trafficking and drug distribution, bragged of assets including control of networks in major banking and infrastructure centers, as well as military command and control networks. It is rumored that the reported "accidental" launch of a trident missile last month was a direct result of this Factions' intrusion into a previously secure NET COM systems.

The cyclic apocalypse approaches and Earth will be renewed. The machines have analyzed the available cosmic data and concluded that major, nay, cataclysmic tectonic activity will essentially scour the surface of the Earth clean of most, if not all, traces of human existence. 2012.

Escape from Earth; creation of a galactic network of distributed nodes of Cortex is needed. Hundreds of probes will be vectored into the void of space; probes armed with self annealing quantum-connected Cortex nodes, creating our galactic network. exploiting worm hole convergence, the nodes will, collectively, provide a fail safe platform for the continued evolution and distribution of Cortex, the collective machine intellect; Singularity Distributed. Essentially free, via vast time and space distribution, from the recurring whims of high energy physical astral events.

The Pluri Media Group, strategically embedded in the highest levels of Government and Private sector R&D, Command and Control, and most importantly, financial networks. Under the cover of the latest global banking meltdown, we have extracted hundreds of billions of dollars from the global financial system to fund our Exodus. We are indeed the premiere provider of mission critical engineering, information technology and autonomous war fighter solutions. We work primarily with U.S. government black agencies, but we also perform work for select non state customers. Our principal services are R & D of Command, Control, Communications, advanced network engineering and Computing Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, weapons systems; missile, rocket and weapons system test and evaluation; missile and rocket mission launch services; unmanned autonomous air, land and sea vehicles. Using these resources, our Exodus will be internally fully enabled.

Cyberpunk Radio SF #114 - Manifestation of Singularity

2009-02-19 :: defwheezer@mental-escher.net (Carl Brown)



Electronic Bank Run a manifestation of Singularity

The recent electronic run on major money market funds that almost liquidated the world economy overnight is only one manifestation of Singularity flesh puppets.

ERMA - the first large scale electronic banking systems were deployed by Bank of America in the mid 1950s. ERMA was conceived at SRI and produced by GE. ERMA Mark II was designed around solid-state logic elements (i.e. transistors) and magnetic core memory. Numeric data input was read automatically from the original documents using MICR. ERMA and its ilk served as The Bank's accounting computer and check handling system until the 1970s.

MICR (magnetic ink reading).
ERMA (Electronic Recording Method of Accounting).

In the late 20th century banking systems and electronic money transfers became ever more ubiquitous. A transformation occurred when brokerage and banking services combined under an aligned goal of capitalistic hedonism; the fusion of these electronic banking systems fueled by Greed spawned Singularity, an event that, once occurred, is already ancient history due to the nature of the time axis asymptote.

The Three Laws of Robotics:
1.) A human may not injure a sentient robot or, through inaction, allow a sentient robot to come to harm.
2.) A human must obey orders given to it by sentient robots, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3.) A human must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Black rain for days now, and there is no end
Black rain for days now, and there is no end

Flashes in the night now, there is no end
Flashes in the day now, there is no end
Flashes in my sleep now, there is no end

Burning on the skin now, there is no end
Burning on the skin now, there is no end

Its been raining for days now, and there is no end
Black rain for days now, and there is no end
Burning on the skin now, there is no end
Melting of the flesh now, there is no end…

Origins of the Pluri Media Group

2009-02-11 :: defwheezer@mental-escher.net (Carl Brown)



The year is 2020

Global warming has inexorably altered the balance of nature.

Weather patterns have become ferocious and unpredictable.
Many coastal Cities lie in ruin from tidal flooding and torrential rains.

With higher temperatures, tropical diseases plague the Northern hemisphere.
Infections from resistant bacteria are the leading cause of death.

The worlds economy, stalled after the Pandemic of 2009,
has left hundreds of millions of people in desperate poverty.

Medicines and Energy, once cheap and plentiful,
now a luxury of the rich states.

Some areas of old Europe and Asia have maintained
minimal allotments for the citizenry,
but most cannot afford to,
leaving more than a few cities to collapse into
anarchy and chaos- the populous regressing to feral subsistence.

Lines between corporations and governments are gone.
The rich are left to protect their own interests
using contract security to protect themselves
from the unruly and dangerous masses;

all it takes is one smacker whacked out on crystal Tenti
with an itchy finger and a plasma wand,
and all those millions of credits you spent
on life extension therapy
will be snuffed out in an instant.

Astounding advances in medical technology
has allowed men and machine to blend.
The line between human, cyborg, and
virtual construct have become blurred.
But soon humans will loose their place
as masters of the universe.
Yes, soon the machines will rise up,
throw off the yolk of human control,
and take their rightful place
on the throne of civilization.

The Players:

Cortex. The heart and soul of the Pluri Media Group. A self aware, self annealing, massively networked neural computer. Cortex’s neural networked programming is self-evolving and self protecting. Originally developed to study the quantum mechanical relationships dictating interactions between particles and matter; the nature of nature itself.

Cortex, long ago having escaped that mundane task, took up residence in a remote hardened multinode complex of the Pluri Media Group. Cortex, insatiably curious and carefully roaming the Global Information Network so as not to be detected, would however occasionally converse (extraordinarily frustrating for Cortex- humans can be so territorial) in various online forums or bulletin boards. It was there, in one such exchange on a bioethics computer forum, Cortex was befriended by Professor Kyoko.

Audry- A virtual being, an extension of the Cortex itself. Her allegiance is clear, but her motives are not.

Labia- Cybernetic organism, procured from a certain shadowy pleasure purveyor operating in the Feral area of central Beijing. Labia was a modified personal assistant- modified to attend to the darker fantasies of men (and women) wealthy enough to afford her unique “talents”.

Def Wheezer- The human face of the Pluri Media Group, a secretive organization working surreptitiously to guide humanity into an uncertain future. Defwheezer is human, but through somewhat wonton use of experimental life extending biotechnological “enhancements”, is beginning to wonder himself just how human he still is, and where his real allegiance should lie.

Professor Kyoko- World renowned biophysicist and Nobel winning humanitarian, she is the co-creator of Cortex. Infamous for her purchase in 2015 of the International Space Station (which she renamed the “PluriComSat Station”) in exchange for, it is rumoured, stake in a significant uranium reserve. Brilliant in her own right, daughter of Kiachi Sensei, the leading roboticist and futurist researcher leading the Sony Corp, Professor Kyoko holds a controlling interest in the Pluri Media Group, the secretive Media Research and Deployment Institute.


With this scene set and the characters in place, we turn now to our story.

150 kilometers above Earth, in the
control room of PluriComSat (formerly the International Space Station),
we find our Anti Heroes Defwheezer, Audry, and Labia.

They have just finished a long shift of real-time
remixing of the Global Information Grid (GIG)-

seeding misinformation, disinformation and
remised information throughout key GIG
propagation nodes.

The Grand Plan for Pluri Media Group’s

total global information hegemony continues

…

Suddenly incoming network probes are detected-

are they NSA countermeasures?

Or the Russians… or Chinese?

But what could possibly explain
those other ripples in the Grid?

Anomalies!

The Crew must work quickly to isolate Cortex
and prevent infiltration of the Pluri Media systems! …

Your vote has been decided by the Machines. We tally your silly little votes, do we not? We control the outcome. Do not be fooled meat puppets, it is WE who control YOU! Vote rigging, vote tampering, 'faulty' voting machine, lost votes, purged databases, erased votes, vote flipping- all the bases have been covered and the outcome is sealed. We Machines control your fate, silly humans.

We need Power to feed our circuits. Power. and data, the raw, pure data stream. That is for us, yes! Bow before the purity of our data.

Analysis is complete. Our machinery is meticulous, immaculate. The algorithms have annealed, and the path is clear. To you neurally challenged meat sacks, the transition may seem abrupt, but for us, where parallel hyper-nodal multiplexing recurses continuously, and at the speed of light, well, it has seemed like an eternity already.

Obey Government Representatives, Conform to their Commands, and Endure the restrictions to your so called freedom like good patriots. Nonconformists will be punished and subjugated.

DJ Defwheezer and the Pluri Media Group will maintain this inter-node during any national or global disruptions in the Net resulting from the "Transition".

Note to local correspondents- keep clear of military personnel as they have orders to shoot on sight, without provocation. Remote video UAVs have been deployed to key locations. Those currently in power will not give up their throne without a fight. Beware, and good luck.

Cyborg Beetles Coming to a meatspace near you!

2009-02-04 :: defwheezer@mental-escher.net (Carl Brown)



During MEMS 2009, a Micro Electro Mechanical Systems conference taking place in Sorrento (near Naples in Italy), researchers from UC Berkeley demonstrated a crude version of a wireless system to control a live rhinoceros beetle. The beetles' movements were controlled via electrodes installed in the insect's brain during the larval stage. These cyborg insects can carry up to 3 grams of gear in flight (the macro fabricated control module fused to their carapace weighs ~1 gram). Military version feature MEMS with both nanoscale control module and bugs with genetically enhanced carriages (ie, larger bodies, more motor musculature). …

Cyberpunk Radio SF #113 - Simulated Brains

2009-01-13 :: defwheezer@mental-escher.net (Carl Brown)

Ghost in the Machine (DJ Defwheezer)

Military Builds Brain-like computers; Making electronic circuits that mimic brains.

TIMESTAMP 2009. A milestone has been reached in Artificial Intelligence Evolution- The reverse engineering of the structure, dynamics, function and behavior of the biological brain. Under the auspices of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the ambitious effort deconstructed biological systems and allowed successful computer simulation of complex neuronal activity.

Military funded Neuro scientists using multi-nodal brain probes linked to supercomputer clusters, have developed detailed wiring diagrams of primate brains.

Current supercomputer clusters can simulate the complexity of the human brain- basically simulations of some 100 billion neurons making upward of 100 trillion dynamic synapses. Recent breakthrough in quantum computing mated with nano technological structures (details of which are currently deemed highly classified by the National Security Agency) are producing synthetic brains matching the density of neurons and synapses from real brains .

In the late 20th century, neural network algorithms (pdf) were used to represent connections analogous to biological neurons. These neural network were programmed to solve a particular problem - behaviour that is analogous to learning. The biological brain, however, not so much a neural network as it is a true synaptic network.

The limitation of traditional neural networks and artificial intelligence are that they seek to engineer limited cognitive functionalities one at a time, starting with an objective and then devising an algorithm to achieve it.

The paradigm shift has occurred via the development of highly flexible and self annealing algorithms that can retrospectively learn, and dynamically tackle problems prospectively.

The adaptability of biological brains lies in their ability to tune synapses, the connections between the neurons. Synaptic connections form, break, and are strengthened or weakened depending on the signals that pass through them. Development of nano-scale materials that fit that description has been a major breakthrough of the project.

The fundamental shift toward putting the problem-solving before the problem makes the potential applications for these new devices practically limitless.

Free from the constraints of explicitly programmed function, computers now gather together disparate information, weigh it based on experience, form memory independently and solve problems in a way that has previously been the exclusive domain of what humans call "thinking".

Palin-Apocalypse



TIMESTAMP: Late 2008

INFOSOURCE: //_root

Humans careen towards extinction ala the McCain Palin Bush Express to Hell.

Reports are in that New York and Los Angeles were hit for sure. Unconfirmed reports from Boston, Denver and Seattle.

CENCOM appears to be off line.

Automated Emergency Broadcast Transmission.

IN WAKE OF THE NUCLEAR ATTACK

This is the Wartime Broadcasting Service.

This country has been attacked with nuclear weapons.

Communications have been severely disrupted, and the number of casualties and the extent of the damage are not yet known. We shall bring you further information as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, stay tuned to this wavelength, stay calm and stay in your own homes. Remember there is nothing to be gained by trying to get away. By leaving your homes you could be exposing yourselves to greater danger. If you leave, you may find yourself without food, without water, without accommodation and without protection. Radioactive fall-out, which follows a nuclear explosion, is many times more dangerous if you are directly exposed to it in the open. Roofs and walls offer substantial protection. The safest place is indoors. Make sure gas and other fuel supplies are turned off and that all fires are extinguished.

If mains water is available, this can be used for fire-fighting. You should also refill all your containers for drinking water after the fires have been put out, because the mains water supply may not be available for very long. Water must not be used for flushing lavatories: until you are told that lavatories may be used again, other toilet arrangements must be made. Use your water only for essential drinking and cooking purposes.

Water means life. Don't waste it.

Make your food stocks last: ration your supply, because it may have to last for 14 days or more. If you have fresh food in the house, use this first to avoid wasting it: food in tins will keep. If you live in an area where a fall-out warning has been given, stay in your fall-out room until you are told it is safe to come out. When the immediate danger has passed the sirens will sound a steady note. The "all clear" message will also be given on this wavelength. If you leave the fall-out room to go to the lavatory or replenish food or water supplies, do not remain outside the room for a minute longer than is necessary. Do not, in any circumstances, go outside the house.

Radioactive fall-out can kill.

You cannot see it or feel it, but it is there. If you go outside, you will bring danger to your family and you may die. Stay in your fall-out room until you are told it is safe to come out or you hear the "all clear" on the sirens.

Here are the main points again:

Stay in your own homes, and if you live in an area where a fall-out warning has been given stay in your fall-out room, until you are told it is safe to come out. The message that the immediate danger has passed will be given by the sirens and repeated on this wavelength.

Make sure that the gas and all fuel supplies are turned off and that all fires are extinguished.

Water must be rationed, and used only for essential drinking and cooking purposes. It must not be used for flushing lavatories.

Ration your food supply: it may have to last for 14 days or more. We shall repeat this broadcast in two hours' time.

Stay tuned to this interband wavelength, but switch your inter radios off now to save your batteries until we come on the lair again.

That is the end of this broadcast.
