DARPA spending millions on voice recognition surveillance

voiceprint

Yet another piece in the Big Brother/ Total Surveillance state plan is in the works. Biometric surveillance, Facial Recognition surveillance cameras,”The internet of things”/Smart surveillance objects and now Audio/Voice recognition surveillance. Would We be wrong in assuming that a total surveillance system were being developed by DARPA and others?

Between 2015 and 2017, the Pentagon will have the ability to decipher human voices in surveillance audio even if background noise makes the covertly recorded conversations inaudible.This may bring to mind the surveillance audio secretly recorded through our smartphones when they are in our pockets. On or off, we know now that our conversations are being recorded by a wide array of electronic devices, and our conversations we used to consider private are actually being stored in data collection facilities like the one in Utah aptly titled the ‘Utah Data Center’.

Newly released documents from DARPA show that they are in the third phase of their ‘RATS’ program (Robust Automatic Transcription of Speech). This information indicates that they are going to great lengths to make sure that secretly recorded conversations can be analyzed by the government.

According to a USA Today article “DARPA has spent $13 million on RATS. It now wants to spend another $2.4 million, contract records show, to make the final push to make the system operational by the Air Force as early as this year but by 2017. Other agencies, particularly those in the intelligence community, will also use the system once it’s operational.”

The program also seeks to recognize different languages, and filter surveillance audio by recognizing keywords. This may also imply that people in other countries will be targeted.The US government was also caught hacking into billions of SIM cards recently.An important question to ask would be, how will they actually put this to use?

Will the government try to start prosecuting people in legal cases with the data collected with the surveillance grid being covertly imposed around us? Perhaps it should be phrased, when will they start using this surveillance data to incarcerate people?

We are surely all aware of the fact that smartphones, certain TV’s, and a wide variety of other devices are actually functioning microphones in a surveillance grid being set up that is apparently a high enough priority to the powers that be to be worth millions of dollars in funding.

So we all know this is happening, but why? Where is this going, how far will they go in analyzing this data and how will they utilize is to prosecute and target people who oppose the interests of the US government and their allies?

DARPA’s Human Experiments: Creation of Transhuman Soldiers

Supersoldier

(DARPA) has a $2 billion yearly budget for research into creating a super solider as well as developing a synthetic police force. Working with the human genome, DARPA hopes to manipulate certain gene expressions. In experimentation, DARPA and the military industrial pharmaceutical complex are using natural abilities that are enhanced through genetic engineering. The US military’s future technology division is reportedly eyeing tampering with soldiers’ genes, allowing them to go for days without food or sleep and re-grow limbs lost in battle or due to landmines.

Scientists at DARPA hope to find a way to affect certain genes, researching the construction of soldiers that feel no pain, terror and do not suffer from fatigue. Researching a drug that can make people go for hours without sleep and stay alert.Tests on the wiring of the human brain are furthered by Jonathan Moreno, professor of bioethics at Pennsylvania State University. Moreno is working with the DoD in understanding neuroscience. The Pentagon allocated $400 million to this research. DARPA is learning how to genetically modify human fat into pure energy by rewiring the metabolic switch which would create soldiers that require less food. By using gene therapy and combining enhancements to alter the color of the human eye is a blending of mutations that have no basis in the natural world.

Roger Pitman , professor of psychiatry at Harvard University is experimenting with propranolol which is a beta blocker that is believed to erase “terrifying memories”, soldiers are subjected to more research while serving to alleviate the psychological effects of war. Moreno explains: “The problem is: what else are they blocking when they do this? Do we want a generation of veterans who return without guilt?”

“DARPA Wants to Install Transcranial Ultrasonic Mind Control Devices in Soldiers’ Helmets”

Military-BrainControl

Standard Issue Mind Control – DARPA wants ultrasound-enhanced helmets that allow soldiers to stimulate certain regions of their brains.

DARPA has been trying to crawl inside the minds of soldiers for a while now, but a new ultrasound technology could let them get deeper inside than ever. Working under a DARPA grant, a researcher at Arizona State is developing transcranial pulsed ultrasound technology that could be implanted in troops’ battle helmets, allowing soldiers to manipulate brain functions to boost alertness, relieve stress, or even reduce the effects of traumatic brain injury.

Manipulating the brain to enhance warfighting capabilities and maintain mental acuity on the battlefield has long been a topic of interest for DARPA and various military research labs.

Dr. William J. Tyler, an assistant professor of life sciences at ASU, writes on the DoD’s “Armed With Science” blog: “To overcome the above limitations, my laboratory has engineered a novel technology which implements transcranial pulsed ultrasound to remotely and directly stimulate brain circuits without requiring surgery.

Tyler’s technology, packaged in a warfighter’s helmet,(This is basically the next advancement of the Obedience Helmet) would allow soldiers to flip a switch to stimulate different regions of their brains, helping them relieve battle stress when it’s time to get some rest, or to boost alertness during long periods without sleep.

DARPA looks for a guided bullet

smartbullet

Once again leave it to DARPA to be the greatest developer of new high tech ways to kill people, because the US Govt’s stockpiles of ammuniton aren’t good enough, now they need “Smart” bullets

DARPA is looking again at the Global Positioning System in a bid to reinvent the tech which used to be cutting edge military gear but these days is tracking dogs and finding golf balls.

DARPA’s director Arati Prabhakar has announced that GPS is past its prime, and that DARPA will set out to create an alternative, or complementary, technology designed to be small enough to fit inside small-calibre ammunition.

DARPA has long had aspirations toward a guided sniper bullet, though the intriguing EXACTO project has thus far seem to focus more on a heavy .50-cal projectile to be guided smartbomb-style by a laser dot.

There is, of course, another alternative: the use of the plethora of radio signals in which we are constantly swathed. If one knows the location of every TV, radio and cellular transmitter then a multi-frequency radio could enable triangulation

DARPA Building Robots With ‘Real’ Brains

Compbrain

The next frontier for the robotics industry is to build machines that think like humans. Scientists have pursued that elusive goal for decades, and they believe they are now just inches away from the finish line.A Pentagon-funded team of researchers has constructed a tiny machine that would allow robots to act independently. Unlike traditional artificial intelligence systems that rely on conventional computer programming, this one “looks and ‘thinks’ like a human brain,” said James K. Gimzewski, professor of chemistry at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Gimsewski is a member of the team that has been working under sponsorship of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency on a program called “physical intelligence.” This technology could be the secret to making robots that are truly autonomous. This project does not use standard robot hardware with integrated circuitry, he said. The device that his team constructed is capable, without being programmed like a traditional robot, of performing actions similar to humans.

What sets this new device apart from any others is that it has nano-scale interconnected wires that perform billions of connections like a human brain, and is capable of remembering information,Each connection is a synthetic synapse. A synapse is what allows a neuron to pass an electric or chemical signal to another cell. Because its structure is so complex, most artificial intelligence projects so far have been unable to replicate it.

A “physical intelligence” device would not require a human controller the way a robot does, said Gimzewski. The applications of this technology for the military would be far reaching.

* (Once again the cutting edge of technology, is in the hands of the Military/Corporate Industrial complex. Artificial Intelligence and Robotics are the biggest developments of the 21st century, and it is being developed and funded by interests that have an agenda for global domination.)

Pentagon plans for telepathic troops , could be in the field within five years.

pentaremote-viewing

The U.S. Army is dedicating millions of research dollars into discovering building helmets to allow soldiers to telepathically communicate with one another on the battlefield.The technology, which seems like something out of a science fiction novel, would use electrodes to pick up code words that soldiers were thinking. ( Hmm do you mean something like this Helmet)

Those codewords would then be transmitted back to a computer where the soldier’s position and message- telling, for instance, that it is safe to progress towards a target- which would be transmitted to their peers in the field.

Based largely out of University of California-Irvine, in conjunction with labs in Philadelphia and Maryland, scientists are trying to improve so-called ‘synthetic telepathy’ so that it could be used in a battlefield.At this point, they have set their sights on 2017 as the year when their plan may turn into silent action.
So far, 45 per cent of the commands that are transmitted from one volunteer to another- like ‘call in helicopter’ or ‘enemy ahead’- are correct. That statistic is expected to improve.

*Rumors* that army intelligence was determined to use mind control technology to their advantage have been milling around for decades.

*Those “Rumors” are actually well documented evidence of Mind Control programs(MKULTRA), and technology (such as Brain implanted Electrodes, and Bio-Telemetry)

Future enemy: Pentagon developing humanoid Terminator robots

Petman-Robot-Test-Scary

*(The below is not my exact opinion, but pretty close. The fact that this technology is in development tells me one thing, that it will be used exclusively for Military purposes. Given the track record of the world most powerful military, I’m going to say that this wont exactly help humanity. All of this converges at a strange crossroads of NWO philosophies, Perpetual Warfare( War on Terror, War on Drugs etc), and Transhumanism.)

The Pentagon wants to develop and deploy a robotic army of autonomous soldiers that(possibly) will kill without hesitation. It’s only a matter of time before these robots are armed with rifles, grenade launchers and more. Their target acquisition systems can be a hybrid combination of both thermal and night vision technologies, allowing them to see humans at night and even detect heat signatures through building walls.

At first, these robots will be deployed as soldier assistants, carrying gear, retrieving wounded soldiers from hot zones, and so on. But over time, the roles will be reversed: Robotic soldiers will serve on the front lines while humans only serve support roles to keep the robots running. Such a transition will take decades, of course, but it’s coming.

What happens when the robots become self-aware?
A more apocalyptic scenario unfolds when the machines are taught to build self-replicating factories that one day gain enough intelligence to decide that humans are no longer needed. This is the scenario described in the movie “Terminator,” where Skynet launches nuclear missiles in an attempt to destroy humanity.

Not coincidentally, an emerging technology of “cooperative drones” that allows small aircraft to carry heavy objects in flight is also being called “Skynet.”
