Towards the end of a recent video from Miles Guo, he hints to us that this virus is an “AI virus”.
Could AI technology meant to heal the sick be repurposed for evil?
Yes — in fact, this pattern of weaponization has emerged across a wide range of weapons technologies currently being built and tested by the CCP. Laser attacks in the South China Sea against American military assets have become common, and stranger weapons have proliferated into the hands of bad actors.
Here are some datapoints about the virus:
The virus can stay alive on metal surfaces for as long as 17-20 days.
The virus can be tracked into your home on your shoes — and your pet can pick it up and subsequently become infected.
The virus can be transmitted as an aerosol — meaning you can get it even if you’re 15 feet from someone simply talking without a mask on.
The virus can linger in the air when we visit stores.
The virus has a lengthy incubation period of ‘up to 27 days’ but potentially (and likely) even longer.
The virus can reinfect the already healed AND can be transmitted by completely asymptomatic carriers.
The virus causes strange symptoms like a loss of taste and/or smell, as well as ‘fizzing’ — a ‘body-buzz’-like sensation.
The virus can and does reactivate in cured patients.
Only a manufactured virus could have properties like these.
Is this the first example of a “smart virus”?
Can the inclusion of datasets like years worth of hacked medical records inform the creators of a virus to the vulnerabilities of the target population? The virus likely has ‘gain of function’ properties — meaning it may gain strength and develop new ‘features’ over time.
To explain in context what an “AI virus” might look like — one only needs to look at the positive impacts of AI technology on the medical industry and compare them with the potential harm they could do if placed in the wrong hands:
Automated cancer screening
Advanced scanning of heart tissue
Testing central nervous system functions
RNA manipulation of viruses
Modifying (or “editing”) properties of a virus in a lab setting
Artificially delaying the replication speed of a virus (to initially delay the onset of symptoms)
The same underlying technology that powers the timer or stopwatch functionality in your iPhone or smart microwave could be repurposed to create a ‘delayed incubation period’ — as to infect the highest number of targets possible.
If there was ever a reason to take a long and hard look at stronger regulations for artificial intelligence as an exported product, and the ramifications of those effects — perhaps this is it.
