Using a human brain to teach a robot how to shoot better

We (the humans) are teaching them (the robots) how to shoot better by uploading our brains into theirs…. What could possibly go wrong?

Modern sensors can see farther than humans. Electronic circuits can shoot faster than nerves and muscles can pull a trigger. Humans still outperform armed robots in knowing what to shoot at — but new research funded in part by the Army may soon narrow that gap.

See, I don’t make this stuff up! I really don’t… mostly because I have better things to do, and mostly because I don’t have to!!
(I just have to sit still for a brief moment and this crazy real stuff just shows up on my RSS feed – in real time).

Researchers from DCS Corp and the Army Research Lab fed datasets of human brain waves into a neural network — a type of artificial intelligence — which learned to recognize when a human is making a targeting decision.

The goal, one day, is a neural net that can learn instantaneously, continuously, and in real-time, by observing the brainwaves and eye movement of highly trained soldiers doing their jobs.

So yeah, that’s about the guts of it.
We have people working on making neural nets and we have others working on making them faster.

Just yesterday I may have Googled how to build my first neural net on a Raspberry Pi…… I have to dip a toe into this stuff, super curious what it’s all about and how I can start training one with some of the data floating around in my house…. My thinking is, we may as well give up now and invite this stuff in through the front door, least then I know where the kill switch is for when it becomes self aware.
