MI6 to Recruit 1/3rd More Redundant Intelligence Agents Destined to Lose AI Cyber Wars

Politics / Intelligence Agencies Sep 24, 2016 - 06:46 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

Britain's secret service, MI6 is about to see their number of intelligence agents boosted by 1/3rd in attempt to fight and counter future digital cyber terror attacks and wars. This is in addition to the expansion of other arms of Britain's secret police such as GCHQ and MI5.

However, the government is making the SAME mistake it always tends to make when it engages in such job creation exercises for bureaucratic institutions in that they are ALWAYS looking in the rear view mirror of what happened in the past and thus how they could have averted for instance 9/11 or 7/7 if they had x,y,z number of personnel in place and then go ahead and implement such capacity expansion a decade after the fact, whilst failing to realise that the nature of the threat has moved on.


What the fools who go by the oxymoron of 'intelligence' agencies FAIL to grasp is that where future physical and cyber attacks and wars are concerned HUMAN INTELLIGENCE IS OBSOLETE!

Instead of employing several thousand obsolete human's who will once more miss the threat just as 9/11 and 7/7 were missed due to INFORMATION OVERLOAD, where today the amount of information (DATA) is exponentially greater than a decade ago. So if there was any intelligence at work at the likes of MI6 then instead of hiring humans they instead should be focused on developing / acquiring the REAL means of fighting and countering future terror / cyber attacks which is MACHINE INTELLIGENCE!

For it is ONLY MACHINE INTELLIGENCE that can discern the patterns amongst an exponential expansion in data so that Britain could stand a chance of countering future terror and cyber attacks, a future that is not so distant when we look at the way algorithms are already controlling much of human life today i.e. the Google Algorithm, the Facebook Algorithm, the smartphone O/S algorithms. Machine intelligence is ALREADY HERE, and so instead of so called intelligence agencies recognising this fact and incorporating algorithms that operate at speeds of millions of times that of humans, instead go and hire a few thousand already redundant for the task humans. In the future states and terrorists will deploy machine intelligence's in their attacks against which one would need machine intelligence's to counter.

Therefore, one things guaranteed that this weeks announcement ensures that Britain is going to waste several more crucial years going down the wrong path until a series of major AI driven attacks force the realisation that they have to switch from human intelligence to machine intelligence, which is even more important than acquiring nuclear weapons was last century because machine intelligence is not a constant because the systems LEARN at a rate that is millions of times what which human capacity and thus gaps between intelligence's may never be filled resulting in a perpetual intelligence gap, always several if not millions of steps behind.

And whilst the military and security services over the coming decade will be at the fore front of implementation of machine intelligence, however just as most intelligence agents are already obsolete then so too not many years distant will be most ordinary workers, be they factory workers, taxi drivers (self drive cars) or GP's (continuous diagnostic systems on smartphone's), something EVERYONE needs to realise today so as to plan ahead for.

Take this as another cue to invest in the artificial intelligence among other tech mega-trends that I covered in my early 2013 ebook that you can still download for FREE.

My next in-depth analysis will seek to map out a trend forecast for the stock market for the remainder of 2016, so ensure you are subscribed to my always free newsletter to get this in your email in box.
