So far this year, we hear a lot about Russia. We hear a lot of concerning things about Russia, like nuclear weapons. The US military’s Darpa (Defense Advanced Research Project Agency) wants to do something about it. Here it is. DARPA uses IT support and Sea Creatures.
So let me explain. DARPA actually wants to sea Creatures like fish, dolphins, even coral and bacteria, to spy on enemy threats. But wait…there’s more. They also want to know which marine animal supports sensors that detect underwater vehicles. That means any of them, including, let’s say, one that can carry very harmful weapons. I think you know what I mean, then.
In, fact, if DARPA uses IT support on sea creatures could save them money. I say this because man made machines often break down. At least, that’s their reason for using sea creatures. However, it’s already happening. They’re already using some large ocean animal for work like this. But as you can imagine, not everybody is happy with this. This appalls environmental groups. One Greenpeace activist says marine mammals should not be involved in military exercises. They insists they won’t use animals on the endangered spices list. That sounds like a step in the right direction, right?
However, this sounds more like two steps forward and two steps back. Because some reports say they want to…ahem…modify species to detect threats in our waters. To me, that either means one or two things, and neither are good. One is they’re either going to breed other species of animals. Or it could even mean they might try some trans-humanist experiments on animals. I hope that’s not the case. Look at how far technology has come in just this last decade. We can build voice assistants. We can build running robots. There’s even talk of building colonies on Mars. So if we can do all that, then can’t we build tools to secure our waterways without using sea creatures?
