THE CIA, SATELLITES, AND AI

Remember the mysterious death of of Dr. Molly McAuley recently? (see

“SPACE ECONOMIST” MOLLY MACAULEY MURDERED

Well, Ms. M.W. found this article, and I have the suspicion that it might shed some light on that sad event:

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/1673802/cia-training-artificial-intelligence-to-spy-on-earth-from-space-using-computer-vision/

So what is going on here? I suspect, as most readers here possibly do as well, that one has to read between the lines a bit to see what is really going on. Ponder these revelations:

A CIA-linked firm has joined forces with Amazon in a bid to use “computer vision” to snoop on the Earth in unprecedented detail.

CosmiQ Works, a firm closely associated with the US intelligence agency, is working with the online retail giant and the satellite mapping firm DigitalGlobe to train algorithms to work out what’s happening on the surface of our planet.

Satellites can already capture astonishingly detailed images from up in space, but the CIA-linked project wants to go one step further and use artificial intelligence to analyse these pictures.

The real question is why the CIA would team up with Amazon in an effort to build-out a computer algorithm in conjunction with satellite imaging. And in my high octane speculation of the day, I suspect the real answer lies less in teaching computers to recognize anomalies in pictures and then to "flag" them for human analysis. The article would have us believe that that "objects" and "things" and even weather anomalies and being able to respond more quickly to "disasters" is the real goal here, in the usual method of introducing something by claiming it is "beneficial."

I suspect the real goal is something completely different, and hence one has Amazon's involvement with the project, for I suspect the real goal is to map in real time the flow of human populations, traffic, commodities, crops, and shipping, in order to form accurate real time pictures of financial and social flows, and to project from them strategic trends and movements. Couple such a computer-aided capability to spy satellite capabilities which would include radar tomography (sub-surface imaging) and one would also have a clear picture of hidden foreign infrastructures and with them, of hidden flows of goods, services, and finance.

This, of course, is a handy capability to have around if you've been running your own system of hidden finance for decades, and building enormous underground complexes for research, covert physical movement of goods and labor, and so on. Indeed, such a capability might imply that a coup of sorts is taking place against those who have, in the past, run that hidden system, i.e., the bankers involved with it, and the intelligence personnel coordinating various aspects of it. With such a system, the technocrats can literally peer into, and analyze all this activity, and ultimately wrest control of that system away from its current and past masters.

And... I also strongly suspect that if there is any reason to be suspicious of the murder of Dr. McAuley, this might be it.

See you on the flip side...

  1. That’s awfully benign. Having read between YOUR lines, I’ll give you no reason to have to read between mine and get right to the point. Satellites, some of them, can make you drop dead in a very direct manner, of various natural causes, depending on the frequency being used of course, if someone, I suppose with the help of a finger on the ‘enter’ key. so desires in your (not) favor or other such non “beneficial” and non benign unlovingly things. Look Mom, hands off (all manner of) torture.

  2. I’m surprised Peter Thiel isn’t involved. Amazon’s algorithms must be top notch given their customer tracking and 1-2 day shipping of anything anywhere in the country. Think of the logistics behind that shipping apparatus, one can have most items at their door the very same day they order. Imagine coupling this with the latest technology proposed to control Zika, an em laser grid that can blanket an area and kill the requisite mosquitos using their unique signature. “Legion please zap anyone that follows any abnormal behavior patterns.”

  3. On Joseph’s article, a more prosaic interpretation is probably closer to the truth:

    Joseph: “And in my high octane speculation of the day, I suspect the real answer lies less in teaching computers to recognize anomalies in pictures and then to ‘flag’ them for human analysis.”

    “Aviation Week” magazine has had many articles exposing the ‘dirty-truth’ of spy satellites: That there are a very limited number of very-high-resolution spy satellites. This leads, of course, to high tasking on those satellites and any number of missed opportunities. Hence, the quest to steer-around that bottleneck…

    First of all, it is interesting that the CIA chose to select private-firms to do its dirty-work, rather than keeping the whole effort deep black. If one were suspicious, it might be because private firms keep everything proprietary, and this keeps a ‘layer’ between the CIA and Congressional scrutiny. Another, more pertinent fact, may lie in the identity of the head of Amazon…

    The key to the matter is using medium-resolution satellites to cue high-resolution satellites. This is much like moderate-power survey telescopes that cue cutting-edge telescopes to any one-off events occurring in the cosmos. (The fact that the medium-resolution satellites are owned by private firms is another ‘perk’; see above.)

    One problem with ‘survey’ satellites is that they produce torrents of data. Humans cannot keep up with the data hose. However, trained algorithms can probably do so, with the caveat of possible missing something important. (Computers can be stupid.) Thus, the need for a program to pre-sort the data down to human size…

    Since the above is being kept carefully away from Congressional scrutiny (with ‘plausible deniability’ built-in from the start), I would rate the likelihood that it will be used for ‘controversial’ purposes as high. This could be everything from tracking-down militia training areas (and whether the parting-lot of same is full or empty), to the ‘tells’ from constructing underground facilities.

    You can decide, with the pipeline going through the Amazon chief, whether this capability will solely be used for America’s foreign interests, or whether the satellite-sweep will be clandestinely ‘turned-on’ over America…

      most people never expects raw stupidity when they get attacked. nor do most people figure out mal-intent when actions are disguised by raw stupidity.

    “Yesterday (September 1 2016), a SpaceX rocket with a $150 million dollar Facebook satellite that was a creation of Zukerberg and Israel blew up during testing, and not during launch. Before it blew up, a UFO showed up, fired something at the rocket, and then quickly flew away. The image here shows the UFO quite clearly.

    If Spacex can’t explain what this UFO is, then I am going to say that either off world help arrived to keep Facebook grounded, or white hats in American intelligence destroyed this rocket to keep something evil from being launched.

    This UFO appears to be between the rocket and the camera filming the explosion, and the similar focus on the rocket and the object proves the object was close to the rocket and not close to the camera. It is not a bird, insect, or balloon or anything else of the sort. Its speed has been estimated by some people to have been about 500 mph. It entered on the right hand side of the frame, fired something at the rocket when it was immediately in front of it, and exited the left hand side of the frame.

    This capture has an image of either a totally new type of drone, or an alien UFO. You take your pick; but whatever this was, it destroyed the rocket and that is all there is to it.

    How do I feel about this? Pretty Freaking Good; it means we have powerful friends that hate Facebook.”

    1. By the way, I would suspect (if it was destroyed) the satellite was not taken-down solely because of Facebook. There would have to be something-additional (hardware or software) within the satellite for that kind of response…

      “I have made an image per image analysis and precise measurement at pixel level on images.
      Screen width approx 2.5 x height of Falcon : True (I obtain x 2.32).
      The video is at 30 fps, and UFO traverse in 8 frames.
      With your quick approach, speed is distance/time = 2.5 * 68.4 / (8-1)* (1/30) = 732 m/s, about 2500 km/h – i.e. Mach 2.

      A more precise measurement shows apparent speed is 2500 km/h at the entry of the field of view on the right and 2000 km/h when exiting the field of view on the left, which leads me to think that the UFO has a curved trajectory.”

      (This assumes the UFO is roughly in the same plane as the Falcon rocket.)

    3. Benjamin Fulford, September 12, 2016:

      “Pentagon sources also say, ‘An Israeli submarine may have been sunk on the 15th anniversary of 9/11, along with the Israeli spy satellite meant to help ISIS, Facebook destabilize Africa, because the Pentagon was struck by an Israeli-sub launched missile on 9/11.’ This would be the latest in a whole series of Israeli submarines that have been sunk in recent years.”

  5. This inside market-based intelligence could be corrupted from the get-go to produce as product as needed. a just-in-time market intelligence to stoke whatever TPTB want it to be. A nothing up my sleeve intelligence product appearance; when, in fact, the deck is algorithmic-stacked to produce any desired outcome TPTB wish.
    Where, TPTB have the real-McCoy, market-based intelligence
    under crypto lock & key.

  6. This also brings up the question of how good is the visual images that are used by the Pentagon in their drone assassinations. If they are of high definition then we are looking at legalize rubouts that would make murder incorporated green with envy. By the way what’s your thoughts on the latest Space-X accident.

  7. Perhaps in addition to the use of data for the futures markets, “they” are also utilizing these Algorithms to cover up information that is only intended for USSA use, whether it be the spy data or illustration of their own bases, and/or Secret Space Program operations, including the coming and going of vehicles from the underground bases. Just a thought.
