This video shows a robot fighting in the Vietnam
war. There are no sound during parts of the video
because I wanted to show the viewers what the robot
is thinking while fighting enemy forces. The
flashing text and freeze frames are the internal
thoughts of the robot and not instruction text for
the viewers. These internal thoughts describe the
details of how the robot produce intelligence.
My robot doesn't use:
planning programs/heuristic searches (used by MIT and Stanford University),
Bayesian's probability theories for decision making, Bayesian's equation for
induction and deduction, semantic networks for natural language
understanding, predicate calculus, common sense systems, first-order logic,
rule-based systems, genetic programming, or MACHINE LEARNING.
There are many things
going on in the robot's mind while fighting a war. There are various
military rules the robot soldier has to follow. In addition, the robot is
doing multiple tasks simultaneously. He is plotting routes, shooting
enemies, following orders from a commander, analyzing the situation, making
decisions, managing his weapons, planning future actions, generating common
sense knowledge, and predicting what the enemy forces are thinking.
When fighting a war,
it is very important to come up with good strategies. In the Vietnam war,
using the flanking maneuver was very popular, where forces are broken up
into waves. The counter to the flanking method is the pincher method, which
is to surround each wave and ambush them. The robot needs to know this and
use personal judgement to counter enemy forces.
The robot works with
other soldiers in a team. He follows orders from a commander. At the same
time, the robot can also use his own judgement and take action. For
example, in one scene, the robot saw that his teammates where firing at
enemies in the north side. He knows that there are only 2 ways into the
fort (north and east). He decides to fight enemy forces in the east side
because enemies can infiltrate the fort through the east.
Sometimes the robot
has to make decisions really quickly. If there are a few enemies
identified, the robot can easily devise a strategy to take them out
quickly. However, if there are lots of enemies identified, the robot has to
think quickly and act quickly. In some cases, certain actions might be
chaotic. Mistakes might happen, like accidentally shooting an ally soldier.
Different robots have
different jobs and follows different rules. These military robots work in a
hierarchical system, whereby orders are given in a hierarchical manner.
Foot soldiers follow orders from their commander, commanders follow orders
from military officials, military officials follow orders from the White
house. Every robot working for the military knows exactly what they can and
can't do. They know who to listen to, what rules to follow, what their job
is, what their powers are, and so forth. In addition, each robot can change
their job description, a foot soldier might be promoted to commander or a
commander might be promoted to a high military official. They uses military
rules to synchronize their teamwork.
devise plans to attack enemy forces. They send robot foot soldiers, robot
commanders, robot combat pilots, robot helicopter pilot, robot tank, robot
intelligence officers, and so forth, into the battlefield. These military
officials station units in various areas to push enemy forces back. Each
individual unit has to work together to share resources, communicate with
each other, and take out enemies. Basically, anything that human soldiers
can do, this technology can also do. It can replace every soldier working
for the United States of America. In fact, this technology can replace
every human occupation. That's the whole point of my invention: "human"
The question to ask
is: are these robots loyal to the United States (or whichever country that
built them)? Will these robot's follow all laws of the US? This includes
the US constitution and military laws. Although these robots were trained
as soldiers, they must follow every law in the US. This includes: don't
hurt anyone, don't rob a bank, don't vandalize property, don't shoplift,
don't run a red light, etc. When this robot is in battle, he can't target
civilians, like women or children. He has to follow all military rules and
target only enemy soldiers. The viewers can go to my website or read my
patents to get the answer to this question. I go into deep discussions
about this topic.
Why is this video so
important??? Because if a robot soldier is built in the future, this is how
it thinks. These are the thoughts of the robot while fighting a war. By
the way, it is 10 times harder to build a robot janitor than to build a
robot soldier (believe it or not).
