A Twinkle in the "AI" of God?
There's been an ongoing effort, call it what you'd like, to create a single functioning global corporate state; one which transcends national boundaries, national, tribal or religious loyalties. However, under this "utopia", people aren't free. This is a "us vs. them" world with the "them" being the elite 1% and everybody else, and it's the "everybody else" I'm talking about now. They're economic slaves; serfs if you will. Merely interlocking cogs in some global corporate machinery, who live and die by their temporary importance to the Machine...and their credit ratings naturally. Individual human lives treated as grease in the running of this behemoth; little more than disposable and easily replaceable parts which both service and fed the beast. But what if this power could be largely removed from the control of the rich who ride this creature of their creation? What if this could change?
So, what would happen if this information, which already exists in some database somewhere, was given "life" (queue sinister laughter)? To be more specific, what if all this information were downloaded onto or connected in some way to the various supercomputers (mostly now being used in academia or the military), and in turn, managed by another super computer whose single purpose is to coordinate this mass of information? Mankind has always considered "God" or the "gods" as superhuman with far reaching intelligence. Perhaps not necessarily all-knowing or omnipotent but close enough for our humble purposes. Since our collective histories, including religions, traditions, cultures, laws, and so forth have already been analyzed and recorded, why couldn't we allow these supercomputers to do what we, as a species, has struggled to do, namely, develop a solution based on the logical and non-emotional assessment of that information? There's no question that it would be free from biases or having an ax to grind.
Let's take that a step further. What if we used the same or similar information to resolve border or resource disputes? Laws and treaties could be evaluated for potential conflicts or similarities and applied accordingly. What if we used, say, the given demographics for a population along with projected shortages and surpluses for the same geographic area to develop a potential job base and then, using the same information, create an academic criteria to meet that need? We could use similar demographics and crime statistics to project and anticipate what areas will have the largest increases in crime and perhaps even the nature of those crimes. Maybe, by combining the two, we could even re-route certain individuals away from criminal activity and toward a more productive life? How?
Individuals could be tested throughout their early academic years and steered toward areas where they are naturally inclined or gifted (though personal choice remains). Communities could be planned around current and projected demographic growth as well the ability of the environment to sustain the population. Going even further, these mega computers, perhaps monitoring specific regions but still interconnected, could be used to increase efficiency in energy, housing, waste reduction, improving transportation, or creating improved ways to produce clean water and to make it more readily available to those who need it the most.
