Et tu Powerpoint?

22 Feb

So I was reading a story about the idea that artificial intelligence could someday be used to fight wars and I discovered this most disturbing sentence:

Already schematized into PowerPoint presentations with tangled colored arrows, talking points and an Orwellian lexicon – "soldier systems," "networked lethality," "war fighter machine interfaces" – the rationale for the effort is laid out in an Army promotional video: "Either you create your future or you become the victim of the future someone creates for you."

So our plan to use computers to fight wars is already laid out in PowerPoint. Not only is the enemy shaking in their boots, but the robots are laughing at how easily they can manipulate us.
