What Is An AI Takeover?
The world of computing and deep learning has come a long way since the first mechanical computational machine created in 1822 by UK mathematician Charles Babbage, and the Atanasoff-Berry digital computer which first used binary codes in America in 1942.
In the past 20 years alone, the power of computers has increased enormously, and is currently doubling every few months, causing preppers to develop legitimate concerns about the future of technology.
While this new technology has given us fancy smartphones that can browse the internet and take high-definition videos, it has also led to a number of developments in robotics and artificial intelligence which aren’t always as great as they initially seem.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning is actually already around us, and most of us use it on a daily basis without even realising – from the way Google finds the relevant information for your search request, to traffic light simulation controlling four-way traffic on our way home from work.
In it’s current basic form it is relatively harmless, and often helps us in our lives by performing automated menial tasks. However, there is something darker and more sinister about the potential of artificial intelligence and what it could become, allowing this technological breakthrough to turn into a SHTF scenario all of its own.
It has been estimated that AI will overtake human mental capabilities anywhere from 2025-2060, when it achieves what is known as technological singularity. This point is an intelligence explosion at some point in the future where AI has reached its peak and becomes capable of governing itself and making its own decisions about its existence.
It is theorised that it would then begin taking steps to upgrade itself even further without the input from humans – a scary concept indeed for preppers looking to survive this new era.
It’s at the point of technological singularity that an AI takeover could begin to happen, using its immense power and data to wage a war against the human race, build their own army of smart cyborgs, cut off our food supplies and control all of our technology, turning it against us.
This AI takeover survival guide will address many issues related to this SHTF situation which could occur in the UK or anywhere around the world in the not too distant future, and give you an overview of what could possibly transpire in the years ahead.
