CIA Linked Group CosmiQ Works Joins Forces With Amazon To Spy On Earth From Outer Space

The project will be “fuelled by the massive amount of information about our changing planet that DigitalGlobe collects every day”. However, the news is likely to send a chill down the spine of privacy campaigners and conspiracy theorists alike, because it conjures images of a world where surveillance satellites keep a watchful eye on all of us.

CosmiQ Works, a firm closely associated with the US intelligence agency, is working with the online retail giant Amazon and the satellite mapping firm DigitalGlobe to train algorithms to work out what’s happening on the surface of our planet.

Satellites can already capture astonishingly detailed images from up in space, but the CIA-linked project wants to go one step further and use artificial intelligence to analyse these pictures.

The partners hope to collect 60 million satellite images and store them in a database called SpaceNet which will be open and accessible by members of the public.

Programmers will then design algorithms which can work out what’s happening in the images or highlight the buildings, objects and natural features in the photos. The project will be “fuelled by the massive amount of information about our changing planet that DigitalGlobe collects every day”.

However, the news is likely to send a chill down the spine of privacy campaigners and conspiracy theorists alike, because it conjures images of a world where surveillance satellites keep a watchful eye on all of us.

“Each minute something is happening in the world,” said Tony Frazier, senior vice president at DigitalGlobe.

“While commercial constellations are poised to collect imagery at global scale, we must advance our ability to analyse data to realise its full potential.

“SpaceNet is key to unlocking a huge explosion of new AI-driven applications that ultimately will help us better respond to natural disasters, counter global security threats, improve population health outcomes, and much more.

“The industry is coming together to power smarter algorithms so we can see and learn things from imagery about our planet that we simply cannot know today through manual techniques.” source

    SpaceNet???
    SkyNet???
    Where have I heard that Before???
    Oh, that’s right, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines!

    Come On, Jesus!

  • OK KY. Here is a quote from Terminator 3 about Skynet:
    Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)

    “John Connor: By the time Skynet became self-aware it had spread into millions of computer servers across the planet. Ordinary computers in office buildings, dorm rooms; everywhere. It was software; in cyberspace. There was no system core; it could not be shutdown. The attack began at 6:18 PM, just as he said it would. Judgment Day, the day the human race was almost destroyed by the weapons they’d built to protect themselves. I should have realized it was never our destiny to stop Judgment Day, it was merely to survive it, together. The Terminator knew; he tried to tell us, but I didn’t want to hear it. Maybe the future has been written. I don’t know; all I know is what the Terminator taught me; never stop fighting. And I never will. The battle has just begun.”

    Self fulfilling prophesy it seems.

      From last Terminator movie – SkyNet will be launch at the end of September 2017.

    Interesting. 6:18pm is 18:18 = 36 or 666. Interesting.

    All sci-fi movies has huge portion of truth. Most technologies what you see there – real. That’s what said John Coleman, ex-FBI officer.

  • Lucienne

    but the CIA-linked project wants to go one step further and use artificial intelligence to analyses these pictures.

    This is already being done. Ask me how I know, wink. Targeted Individual, Brain mapping through DARPA, Direct Energy Weapons, Mind Control. ( search terms) Preparations for satans one world govt/religion. How do I beat it? Jesus.
    Praise The Lord!

    “All sci-fi movies has huge portion of truth.”
    This is very true. If you go back to some of the oldest stuff out there, say “Buck Rogers in the 21st Century”, they always looked far fetched at the time, but years later the technology many times appears and surpasses what was in the movie! Sooner or later the military always turns it into a weapon. Isaac Asimov’s novels and Star Trek are also good examples of technology that is being pursued. The question I always have is, who is the inspiration for this stuff, the scientists or people with fertile imaginations? (The chicken or the egg?)

    I wonder if they will be able to see me take a piss in the back field at night?

  • George W

    Soon the androids will be coming for us!

    Why yes, yes they will…

    Interesting that Muslim prophecy, as interpreted by Grand Ayatollah Shirazi, ties in with this.

    “The comments came from Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi, who operates his own website to promote his views.”

    “Today we use satellites [and by means of them] cover extensive areas, so that anyone with a receiver can use them… In the time of the Mahdi’s arrival, there will be a powerful apparatus, that may be difficult for us to imagine today, for transmitting images so that the entire world is visible like the palm of a hand. Without worldwide control by an intelligence [apparatus], there can be no unified global regime [as foretold that there will be when the Mahdi arrives], and no peace, security, and decency… Therefore, God grants him this tool… Once again I stress that this is a routine matter, and that it is inconceivable that it will come about based on a miracle; rather [it will come about] by means of ordinary tools that are based on scientific and industrial advances.”

    “When the Mahdi rules, the pure will have the height of freedom, and the criminals will be monitored – maybe so much so that sound waves will be detected from the walls of their houses, and when necessary it will be possible to understand what they say at home.”

    “Perhaps a century ago, this statement [about detecting sound waves] would have seemed like an unimaginable miracle. Yet today, some countries monitor traffic on the roads using radar, with no police present. Therefore, it is clear that during the global revolution of the Mahdi… there will be an unprecedented expansion of industry and technology.”

    I think it’s all part of the Great Delusion: the Vatican is tied to Muslims and also believes in aliens. I think something is going to be revealed very soon. Whether we are here or not for it is up to God.
