Facebook Unveils Sinister Project
to Read Your Thoughts (Seriously)

Heat Street, by Kieran Corcoran

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/21/2017 10:03:36 AM

Elite Facebook scientists have unveiled their latest project: building technology to literally read your thoughts. A group of experts, led by the former boss of the Pentagon’s shadowy DARPA military research division, have hired 60 developers to bring the tech to life. At a conference in San Jose, covered by The Financial Times, Regina Dugan described how they hoped to monitor the movement of minerals moving through individual brain cells to read thoughts. (Snip) Dugan claimed that the social network’s only interest in accessing its users’ thoughts is to save them time typing or speaking so they can “get all

Absolutely nothing would surprise me anymore related to things like this. It sounds like some weird tin foil hat conspiracy but with I just don´t see that it is inconceivable. A few weeks ago I saw a segment on 60 minutes that is related. I never watch that show and by chance was flipping around and saw the story about how iPhones are programmed addict the user. Link below. Considering the behavior of those who are permanently glued to their iPhones I don´t see that as being too far fetched. It really is a frightening brave new world.

The tech world was mystified when Microsoft purchased Skype, a company which had never turned a profit or had any room to grow, for BILLIONS of dollars. For what? To cannibalize the client into a new, glorified version of Microsoft Lync?

Then, it came out (I believe in the Snowden affair, if memory serves) that the software had been modified to act as an active and passive listening device for the NSA. FOR the NSA, mind you, not BY them. While it will (probably) never be proven, the ludicrous sum for that purchase was likely paid by you and me, through national security appropriations.

I have little doubt that something similar is going on here a surveillance technology research expenditure being disguised as Convenient New Innovation for Your Home or Office Use!

But, the data-processing capabilities of our vaunted cyber security apparatus at Fort Meade and the Utah Data Center are already totally outstripped by the sheer amount of data being collected on the American people. This makes them nearly useless for discerning national security threats, but pretty excellent at storing the communications of every American. Just in case, for some reason, you might want to pick out some individual and peel his life apart like an onion.

Once the Panopticon can read our thoughts, they´re gonna have to buy ten more like the Utah Data Center. BOHICA. Our surveillance state overlords are going to make you and me purchase our own chains, and at a steep price.

Not surprised. I think there has been much study into mob-mentality behavior and the left has been directing the lemmings, starting with ´Big Education´ (but now in grade schooling as well)and ´Big (and Social) Media´. They may not be attempting to read our thoughts so much as checking on the progress of how well they can direct them.

Considering the absolute addiction that the youth of this country have with their iPhones, and people of all ages posting their every thought on Facebook, I´d say they have already succeeded. They´ll gather a lot of useless trash, but no really intelligent thoughts!

Just what we need. A method for idiots to throw out their thoughts to the internet 5 times faster. Many of these individuals don´t have an original thought in their head, and all they would produce are mindless slogans and PC nonsense.

Sound like DARPA is using Facebook resources to develop a real form of mind reading. Can´t be good. Sounds rather sinister to me.

Popular 90s comedy series Roseanne will be the latest hit show set to return to TV, two decades after going off the air. An eight-episode limited series revival of the highly-rated ABC blue-collar family comedy is in the works, Deadline reports, with Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert and other key cast members reprising their roles. The Golden Globe and Emmy-winning working-class comedy series quickly became a cult classic in its nine-season run between 1988 to 1997. While no network has yet been set for the revival, ABC and Netflix are reported to be the top choices. Netflix could be an attractive option

ATLANTA — Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, Sheriff David A.

North Korea launched a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan on Friday, but the missile "broke up in flight" and has been deemed a failure, two U.S. officials have confirmed to Fox News. The missile has been assessed to be a KN-17, a former Scud missile that officials believe is being tested to one day target ships. It flew roughly 25 miles and was in the air for about 15 minutes, officials tell Fox News. The KN-17 was launched from Pukchang. A White House official told Fox News that the U.S. is not suprised by this latest test, nor the fact that it failed. The White House is watching the situation closely and consulting with

For U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Adam Wylie, "Emra" -- the 9-year-old Belgian Malinois he was forced to leave behind in South Korea -- was more than a service dog. The canine filled the void of family when Wylie, a 12-year veteran of the armed forces, was deployed from 2012 to 2014 in South Korea where he was stationed around Osan Air Base. "She meant the world to me," Wylie, 33, told Fox News. The two -- separated for three years -- were reunited April 20 in Cincinnati in a heartwarming reunion that at first seemed improbable.

WASHINGTON – Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said he hopes the Trump administration begins to “move back to a regular process” and “normalize” the admission of refugees into the United States. Over the Easter recess, Corker and Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) visited the Bidi Bidi refugee camp in Uganda, which houses about 270,000 people who fled the civil war in South Sudan. Corker was asked if he has recommendations for the Trump administration on refugees after his experience on the trip. “It’s my hope that what they’re going to do is go through a process of, as they’ve already

Former President Obama said at a private event Thursday that his signature healthcare legislation is more popular than President Trump, jabbing at his successor for trying to repeal his signature legislation, according to CNN. Paraphrasing Obama, an attendee reportedly said the former president told the New York crowd that "The Affordable Care Act has never been more popular — and it´s more popular than the current president." Trump has had historically low approval ratings, with a recent CNN poll showing that after about 100 days in office, just 44 percent approve of Trump´s work as president.

Saturday marks President Trump’s 100th day in office, and to celebrate the occasion he got a bit too candid in an Oval Office interview with Reuters. Obviously certain elements of being president are pretty fun, but President Trump has discovered that it isn’t all playing with trucks and pressing a button that makes Cokes appear. Sometimes there’s work to be done, and as it turns out being leader of the free world is a lot harder than running a fake university and playing a caricature of a rich person on TV.“I loved my previous life.
