Here comes Artificial Intelligence!!! And you will be asked to pay for it.
On July 29th, 2015, President Obama signed an Executive Order for the National Strategic Computing Initiative, (NSCI). This Executive Order will ramp up the development of computer technology to many times that of what Moore’s Law has given us to date, according to “JD”, who is an expert in computer technology.
Moore’s Law for those of you hearing it for the first time, was a theory that become so widely accepted and popular in computer manufacturing as to be called a “Law” that, roughly stated, dictated that computing power doubles approximately every 18 months.
That’ll accelerate with this new Executive Order and the full-court press it imposes on ALL GOVERNMENT departments to support the transition into full-blown Artificial Intelligence, (AI). “JD” suggests that, since AI will use itself and will redesign its own hardware and software, it will be capable of multiplying its computing power at speeds that will leave Moore’s Law in the dust.
Technology companies love this new Executive Order. It means big bucks for them.
If you are frightened by the thought of our future lives being controlled, directed, and decided by computers, don’t be. There’s nothing you can do about it. What once was the stuff of Science Fiction has just been signed into law by President Obama. That’s the power of politics. When a Presidential candidate promises change, you can bet it means turning a gigantic screw while the voters and taxpayers are on the receiving end.
In case you want to know what this means for your kids, grand kids, family, or yourself, I am providing a number of links for your convenience. If you only choose one link to click, choose the video explanation so you can at least talk intelligently about it to your colleagues:

Why didn’t the national news cover this story in detail? After all, billions of your tax dollars will be directed to pay for all the research and to support this initiative.
