I Prayed have prayed
Father, we come against this issue of pride and transhumanism. While AI in simple forms can be helpful, we pray that You would prevent humanity from playing god and developing it more than necessary. Remind this world how important the image of God is, Lord.

DeepMind, a company owned by Google, says it is close to developing “human level” artificial intelligence. We must pray that this amounts to nothing and does not harm humanity.

From Daily Mail. DeepMind, a British company owned by Google, may be on the verge of achieving human-level artificial intelligence (AI).

Get prayer updates from IFA.

 

Nando de Freitas, a research scientist at DeepMind and machine learning professor at Oxford University, has said ‘the game is over’ in regards to solving the hardest challenges in the race to achieve artificial general intelligence (AGI).

AGI refers to a machine or program that has the ability to understand or learn any intellectual task that a human being can, and do so without training.

According to De Freitas, the quest for scientists is now scaling up AI programs, such as with more data and computing power, to create an AGI.

Earlier this week, DeepMind unveiled a new AI ‘agent’ called Gato that can complete 604 different tasks ‘across a wide range of environments’….

It can chat, caption images, stack blocks with a real robot arm and even play the 1980s home video game console Atari, DeepMind claims….

De Freitas tweeted: ‘It’s all about scale now! The Game is Over! It’s about making these models bigger, safer, compute efficient, faster…’

However, he admitted that humanity is still far from creating an AI that can pass the Turing test – a test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour equivalent to or indistinguishable from that of a human….

In another opinion piece, ZDNet columnist Tiernan Ray wrote that the agent ‘is actually not so great on several tasks’….

‘Its ability at standard chat dialogue with a human interlocutor is similarly mediocre, sometimes eliciting contradictory and nonsensical utterances.’

For example, when a chatbot, Gato initially mistakenly said that Marseille is the capital of France….

AGI has been already identified as a future threat that could wipe out humanity either deliberately or by accident.

Dr Stuart Armstrong at Oxford University’s Future of Humanity Institute previously said AGI will eventually make humans redundant and wipe us out….

Before his death, Professor Stephen Hawking told the BBC: ‘The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.’

In a 2016 paper, DeepMind researchers acknowledged the need for a ‘big red button’ to prevent a machine from completing ‘a harmful sequence of actions’….

Father God, I ask in Jesus’ name today that You would bind, hinder, frustrate, and destroy the New World Order and all plans to implement it. We ask You for righteous leaders who will protect and enforce and re-institute FREEDOM in every area, throughout the world

Mankind has forgotten who our Creator really is, and that we are made in the image of the One who created everything we know. He is also the One that will determine the fate of all who have rejected and rebelled against Him when He comes back. Robotics are helpful in many ways, but Transhumanism is horrible, and it will be stopped by the Lord Jesus Christ soon. He gave each of us a soul and a living spirit from His own breath, and that cannot be replicated by a machine.

Father, we cast down anything that would exalt itself against the knowledge of God. That is exactly what is happening with AI. Bring nonsense into their work. Thank you that they will never get rid of the human race; you are coming soon and then judgment. Draw these scientists to you; show them truth and show them their end if they refuse you.

Lord God, thwart these evil plans that are commencing TODAY. Do not let the power that has been misused via the pandemic continue to be perpetrated. We pray that increased vaccine mandates will not stand. Do not let Biden cede United States health authority to the World Health Organization. Make all ratified, freedom-stealing amendments and treaties, worldwide, become null and void. We pray that all global health magnates would not have consensus in plans they may seek to make. Let all other related, and unrelated, plans harmful to sovereignty and freedom fall apart, fruitless. Annihilate the World Health Organization’s ratified Pandemic Treaty. Preserve our freedoms, worldwide. Destroy the New World Order and the Great Reset

Father, we pray against transgenderism in our schools. Preserve our children’s freedom of speech, God, and keep them safe from those who wish to harm, manipulate, suspend, or expel them.
