A look at US comapany Amazon and its involvement with the US military in creating an artificial 'brain' called JEDI. It demonstrates a new level of US determination for global domination, and would represent the creation of a weapon that would dramatically up the level of global military rivalry and ensure more human conflict.



JEDI will do what is being done now on a less coordinated scale and with a smaller volume of surveillance data, but JEDI, The Guardian reported recently, "promises to find those enemies faster - even if all it takes to be considered an enemy is exhibiting a pattern of behavior that a (classified) machine-learning model associates with hostile activity. Call it death by big data."

In addition, JEDI will very likely to be at the heart of managing the first generation of operational US robotic land, sea, air and space weaponry.
