M2M: NASA Aim For Machine Intelligence

June 28th, 2007 | researchmaterial

NASA are after a self-guided machine-to-machine (M2M) intelligence system for space missions:

An M2M system would enable machines to make intelligent choices, execute self-guided adjustments, and communicate with one another, all without human intervention, in a way that they presently cannot. As envisioned, an M2M intelligence system will work with a broad spectrum of machines, from wireless tools and sensors to robots, spacecraft, and computer grid systems. The goal is nothing short of machine self-dependency.

  1. Well. That’s perfectly frightening, when you extrapolate outward from Survival Scenarios, without expressing full fuzzy logic and emotion simulation capabilities.

    Shit, we’re some dumb smart things.

  2. How to do this?

    1. In the beginning, Man created the Cylons

    2. Skynet gains sentience.

    3. ‘Shall we play a game?’

  3. i bet you could plug the internet into it

  4. Where did they get this idea from? Another Transmetropolitan rip off? Check your writings, big W, may be there is copyright theft at hand.

  5. Machine autonomy? I think therefore I am… Could be a whole new kettle of fish if you decide you want to turn one of them off…

    As soon as I read it, I thought, hello skynet!

    If we can’t learn from the apocalyptic visions of the future we generate for ourselves, we are doomed to live them out.

  6. Let the machines talk –
    But have analytics on your system to allow humans to act on it..
