Keeping an eye on Communist, Totalitarian China, and its influence both globally, and we as Canadians. I have come to the opinion that we are rarely privy to truth regarding the real goal, the agenda of Red China, and it's implications for Canada [and North America as a whole]. No more can we rely on our media as more and more information on China is actively being swept under the carpet - not for consumption.

Pentagon to Spend $885Mln on AI to Compete With Russia, China - Reports 11:03 31.07.2018
MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The US Department of Defense will spend $885 million on a large-scale artificial intelligence (AI) systems to boost the country's military performance in a bid to compete with China and Russia, The Washington Post reported.
Josh Sullivan, the senior vice president at government consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton, told The Washington Post that the AI systems would do basic surveillance, object identification and other mundane activities while allowing soldiers and officers to perform higher-level tasks.
"Part of this is (about) making sure our government has the access to the best technology and using it responsibly in service of our citizens and warfighters," Sullivan said as quoted by the media outlet.
Artificial intelligence is becoming an increasingly important technology in warfare and national security across the world.
In particular, China is reportedly developing unmanned AI submarines expected to be put into service in strategic waters in the early 2020s, while Russia is actively funding research of drones and robotics technologies.
