Google A.I 's speech indistinguishable to real human speech

"...enabled by advancements in automatic speech recognition, text-to-speech synthesis and an understanding of how humans pace their conversations."

The masses make it way to easy for google by agreeing to their vague "user agreements" that give them free reign with data collection (mic tapping on android?). What else can be done with all that information?
I find it quite terrifying.

Welcome to the Uncanny Valley....

It isn't really all that terrifying anymore...
it has been a progressive advance towards this point and beyond...

-We developed software that can perfectly alter photographs ..
so now we cannot trust the pictures shown to us..

-We developed software that can perfectly alter audio ..
so now we cannot trust the conversations shown to us..

-We developed software that can perfectly alter video ..
so now we cannot trust the film shown to us..

-We developed an entire subculture of people across almost every country working for and against their own governments..
whose sole purpose is to spread misinformation ..
so now we cannot believe what we see on the news or read ..

-We have gotten so good at it ...that the institution of the the REAL news ...has been dismissed as false and fake news...


So ...
Now we are at the point where nothing and no one can be believed..

We have completely contaminated the well of verifiable truth and fact.

We have blurred the lines of "What Is" to the point where "Nothing is believable"

What can be expected next?
The obvious...
Questioning whether those one is communicating with are even human..

And it will get worse..

We are at the point that ...though the sun shines and illuminates every day...
we are now in the dark...
not heading to it..
Not falling in it...
we are already there...


Me ..
I ain't worried..
I got this friend of mine ...
He helps keep it real...
Not like the old 1.0 Version ..
this guy is the 2.0 version...
new and improved...



Buddy Jesus

(you gotta watch the comedy "Dogma" Matt Damon , Ben Affleck and so many other good actors...)

I got my own for my desk...
and a bobble-head too ...
Makes me laugh...
Positive attitude guy...

Ben Affleck? Obviously his best of the best movie...Armageddon. I think we can learn slot from that movie.

1. Learn how to land on an incoming rock
2. drill
3 nuke it.
4. Don't pay taxes ever again.

It dosen't need to be more advanced than that to be able to outsmart the dinosaurs.

yup....
doesn't bode well...
there is only one reason to make stuff like this...

you have a bonafide right to be worried...
Be truly scared when they begin mass production...
Because then...they are cheap enough that some destroyed from people trying to defend themselves against them...that it is a negligible loss...

once it reaches Mark 13 development *...its time to consider suicide before they get you first...


* this is what you want... this is what you get ... man...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMaVIAlJlnw

from the movie "Hardware" 1990
excellent film
Dylan McDermott (who just finished doing a similar role in Automata)
John Lynch
Iggy Pop (as Angry Bob the radio DJ)
Lemmy (God rest his soul) from Motorhead ..who is the Water taxi driver
and a few other good actors...

Music by P.I.L. and Ministry
the dobro guitar in it is perfect...
and the background music is justifiably ominous ...

Excellent film...with the Mark 13 ...an AI self repairing from virtually anything around it...multi-methods of recharging ...a learning robot that is horrifying...whose sole build- purpose is to be efficient, inventive and cunning ..in eradicating a pervasive and adaptive species (humanity)

watch that film...and the scenario is inevitable when pitted against what environmental conditions our species is forced to face...
good film...
suggest as many drugs as you have to watch this film... mike...
to cope ...
that is...
'cause if indistinguishable human-like robot voices, rover and the cute robot-man frighten you...
then Hardware WILL terrify you.
Less the film...and more what the robot's basis and efficient purpose actually represent.

or if Hardware is too much for you ...
relax and watch "Dark Star" (1974) ...
that will chill you right out man...
truly a classic that will go down in history...
