DISRUPTING ROBOTIC HOMEOSTASIS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS WITH ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE.
By paul f renda
Recently a computer was able to pass the Turing test in Great Britain. That machine was able to make human beings think that they were talking to a 13-year-old boy. In the popular media there’s been people talking about supercomputers what happens when they become self-aware or become HAL as in the movie 2001. The futurist Elon Musk has also expressed reservation about artificial intelligence computers that become smarter that man. All of these advanced systems are run by microprocessors and robots have internal and external sensors. These components are very susceptible to electromagnetic pulse.
At past hacker conferences I demonstrated digital devices that were being pulsed by my Marx generator. I am expanding my work to include experimenting with Tesla coils. I have been using coils operating at 3 different frequencies.
Robots may be particular susceptible to EMP pulses because of robotic homeostasis…
Homeostasis for human being means that blood level PH, sugar, and temperature has to be within certain levels in order for a human being to be healthy. For robots that means its sensors. That is devices that relay information (duplex) to its microprocessor. These would be servos and internal and external sensors. Is the robot walking, walking up stairs, galloping, what is the position of the of the robot arm to the work it has to perform. This massive computing power, servos and sensors can be disrupted by EMP pulse.
I plan on doing some demos of my current work with tesla coils at hacker conferences during the summer of 2015.
