Signs of the Apocalypse: Cat recognize Computer Neural Network
If somebody was to ask me what I sure way of making machines far more creepy, I’d rank a massive network of computers functioning like a neural network, pretty hight up there. And guess what? That is like exactly what Google’s X Labs folks did.
On the plus side, all this network currently seems to be able to do is identify cats, which seems pretty benign I guess. On the negative side? There is a fucking thinking-machine network that can identify cats! What next? Livers? For efficient extraction in the effort of human eradication?
Honestly this reminds me a bit of thinking computer network in Orson Scott Card’s sequels to Ender’s Game. That, or just a ghost in the machines. Anyway, it is creepy-roboty-doom-stuff.
