Artificial Intelligence in Warfare: “Predictive” Maintenance

Fix It Before It Breaks: SOCOM, JAIC Pioneer Predictive Maintenance AI

 

For those of you that have served you know all too well the term “Preventative Maintenance” (PM). Remember those little White books attached by a dog tag chain to every piece of friggin equipment? Well in the 21st century you can scratch that term and replace it with “Predictive” Maintenance. What?

This Person Does Not Exist

 

Ever wonder how all those American, Russian and Chinese BOT accounts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Linked-In etc. got the actual human face avatars for their accounts? How about all those legit looking PHISHING attacks? Well, they created them out of thin air of course! Yep folks, in the 21st century world of cyber-manipulation and warfare, there’s an App for that, it’s called (wait for it) This Person Does not Exist.

It’s really user friendly. There are not even any menu’s or buttons, just refresh your page for a new, ambiguous, non-existent human face! Creepy huh? Of course creating fake BOT and PHISHING accounts is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg in the 4th and 5th Generations of Cyber Warfare.

Welcome to a Brave New World.

Dose of Truth: The “Future” of War is Now

 

If any of you have ever read the book Ghost Fleet by P.W. Singer you would realize with a chill down your spine that more and more things listed in that fictional work regarding Military Technology is beginning to unfold  right before our eyes.

The recent unveiling of China’s new Dark Sword Drone makes the 4GW tactic of “Drone Swarming” more realistic than ever.

The book’s primary goal is not just a fictional account of World War 3, but how a future conflict with China and Russia will most likely LOOK LIKE, and by that I mean in the parameters of 4th Generation Warfare Tactics.

Not only will Technology play a major role but also the MANNER in which a future war will be waged, (false flag events, proxy military actions, fake news, unconventional warfare tactics,  etc.)

I urge all martial civilians to get familiar with these tactics and technology because who knows, one day we might, like the Wolverines in Red Dawn, find ourselves ‘smack dab in the middle of World War Three.’

How Search Algorithims Manipulate You

 

A recent article about how Google and YouTube Search Algorithims are manipulated got me to thinking.

So I emailed a good friend of mine, Mr. A, with my concerns. Mr. A works on the security side of the IT industry.

Here is what he had to say:

Technology and information warfare have reached a new stage of sophistication. Not only is psychology optimally ‘weaponized’ in the way information is presented, but carefully crafted ‘profiles’ are used by companies like Google, YouTube, Amazon, and Facebook along with numerous ad tracking companies to show you advertisements that are the most likely to influence you.  If you, for example, put a search term into Google on your computer and look at the results, you will see a certain list in a certain order. If you do the same thing in a public library or on a computer at work with the identical search terms, there will be a different set of results. This is profitable for marketing purposes, but it can be used to suppress information as well.

The problem is that you don’t know what you aren’t being shown, and Google is making the decision on what you are to see! You are not being given an equally distributed set of information, but rather a curated subset of information. Twitter does ‘shadow banning’ where tweets from influential conservatives simply do not appear in the timeline of those that follow them. Again, you don’t know what you aren’t being shown, and so it is difficult to know when you have been presented incomplete information.

Additionally, disinformation campaigns are constantly being launched by extremist groups, corporations, and foreign nations aiming to flood the internet with information that confuses and divides people. Because it takes 10x more effort to refute a lie than it does to spread a lie, disinformation floods social media with disconcerting effectiveness. It’s not just about political elections either. Russia was recently caught spreading disinformation about vaccines of all things.
