The Sun reports:
"The U.S. Navy is funding the development of a new super-surveillance system which uses robots to snoop on humans in terrifying detail.
It has handed a $1.7 million (£1.4 million) grant to researchers from Cornell University, who are working to build a system which can 'conduct surveillance as a single entity with many eyes'
The cash was handed over by the U.S. Office of Naval Research, which is dedicated to developing new forms of military and civilian technology.
Last year, we exclusively revealed that the same department discussed plans to fit humans with microchips and track their every move.
Now it wants to develop a system which lets teams of surveillance robots gather and share intelligence 'at the speed of light'.
'Once you have robots that cooperate you can do all sorts of things,' said Kilian Weinberger, associate professor of computer science.
The team suggested the new technology 'might help when teams of robots relieve humans of dangerous jobs like disposing of landmines, cleaning up after a nuclear meltdown or surveying the damage after a flood or hurricane'.
It could also be taught to spot people behaving suspiciously, such as someone who has placed a backpack on the floor and walked away.
The Navy is likely to want to fit the technology into drones.
Of course, one of the main things this sort of system could really do is is spy on people.
The Cornell team’s technology will ultimately allow multiple robots to 'identify objects and track objects and people from place to place'.
This will draw on the team’s expertise in 'computer vision', the name for a discipline dedicated to teaching camera-fitted robots to observe the world and understand what’s going on in front of them.
Facebook’s artificial intelligence chief, Yann LeCun, is one of the world’s leading expert in this field."
Father Charles Arminjon, in his book entitled 'The End of the Present World," explains that, "..the Antichrist will be lord of the world" and that, "It is abundantly clear that the effect of all the events of the present time is to prepare the social setting in which the dominance of the man of sin will be exercised...any careful observer [this would rule out the vast majority today] of the events of the present time cannot escape the conviction that everything is being done to bring about a social environment where the man of sin, by combining in his person all the depravity and every false doctrine of his age, will be produced spontaneously and effortlessly, like the parasitical tapeworm that breeds naturally in gangrenous flesh and organs.."
Men, crippled by their atheistic humanism, are today forging their own net of despotism which will be encompassed by the walls of new concentration camps. Already citizens find themselves being monitored by a surveillance society which is merely a preparation for the fish-tank men will find themselves within when the Man of Sin assumes power.
"Man," Father Vincent Miceli, S.J., explains, in attempting to be both an atheist and his own God, "has only succeeded in establishing an inhuman humanism, a political and religiously perverted atheism which violently forces him..into total bondage to the father of lies and the unnatural perversions that lead to nihilism. Idol-perverted through the worship of itself, atheistic humanism practices the licentious liturgy of feeding its Man-God on man-god victims, a sort of divine-human cannibalism. The adventure of atheism is seen, in the last analysis, to be that unfathomable iniquity which attacks the very roots of reality, divorcing things, persons, societies from God and organizing them into a militant Kingdom of hate that ceaselessly and sacrilegiously assaults the sanctity of God and the dignity of men."
Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas once commented on the way that oppression can subtly arise in our midst: "As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness."
Watch and pray!
