This is one helluva piece of real deal journalism. Kudos to Savroula Pabst
And to think Palantir and others would not have been possible without the stolen software of Promis, as documented by Danny Casolaro in “The Octopus.” Undoubtedly there have been many other thefts including that of Leader Techonologies (aim4truth.org,) without which social media would not have been possible. Very Smart people were exploited, having been recruited from our academic systems through their spy craft, to further develop the inventions and ideas of those noble enough to serve the community and betterment of mankind, but for what end? It seems those dystopian visions from science fiction writers of a tyrannical technocracy with a feudalistic like gap between the haves and have-nots is their goal for world domination. These AI technologies for warfare are being tested on the battleground of the war they probably concocted in the first place, while introducing pre-crime and mass surveillance tech to new levels. People like Peter Thiel are, in my opinion, frontmen for those with the real power of the purse who like to remain anonymous.
" Palantir: “Tracks everyone from potential terrorist suspects to corporate fraudsters, child traffickers and what they refer to as ‘subversives’… it is all done using prediction.” (The Guardian). Palantir became a contractor for a variety of federal agencies, including the FBI, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the National Security Agency (NSA), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the military’s Special Operations Command, among others. Last year, it won a contract to create a new battlefield intelligence system for the U.S. Army. Palantir is also in demand for its “pre-crime technology,” which has been used by several U.S. police departments.
Palantir — which has obvious similarities to PROMIS — is already known to use its software to track potential terror threats, including domestic terror threats, and a category of people it refers to as “subversives.” Palantir’s tracking of these individuals “is all done using prediction.” Palantir’s close ties to the U.S. intelligence community suggest that Palantir may already have access to the Main Core database. Tim Shorrock told MintPress that Palantir’s use of Main Core is “certainly possible,” particularly in light of the company’s use of the term “subversive” to describe a category of people that its software tracks.
Palantir also has alleged ties to Israeli intelligence, as there have long been suspicions that Israeli intelligence has used Palantir as part of its AI “pre-crime” algorithms targeting Palestinians after Palantir opened a research and development (R&D) center in Israel in 2013. The current head of Palantir Israel, Hamultal Meridor, previously founded a brain-machine interface organization and was senior director of web intelligence at Verint (formerly Comverse Infosys), which has deep connections to Unit 8200, a history of espionage in the United States and was one of the two companies contracted by the NSA to insert a “backdoor” into the U.S. telecommunications system and popular products of major American tech companies.”
There are already reports that Ukraine stopped using AI based help from US. The conclusion was, it is not working for offensive purposes. Ukrainians went rough and back to the way they operated in a partisan war in the 40ies.
There is a trend for them to push toward a world with AI running everything including warfare. The war provides valuable battle tests to work out the flaws.
Both sides ramp up there drone facial recognition abilities that otherwise would come under scrutiny if not during emergency war continuity of government powers. This is a control bid for one “prison planet” to be used on civilians later.
