A US intelligence agency has been quietly working on a highly secretive artificial intelligence (AI) spy satellite system.
And its name could be the handiwork of a badly written Bond villain: Sentient.
A FOIA request to the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) was filled last year to get more information about a secretive program named Sentient.
The NRO is a member of the United States Intelligence Community and an arm of the States Department of Defense that deals with satellites and signals intelligence.
Following the request, The Verge received many documents, revealing that the NRO was developing an AI spy system capable of combining satellite imagery with data, whether it’s news sources, environmental sensors, or information from social media to gain real-time information into the active world below.
A bit like a brain which combines all the influx of information, before acting and taking a decision in a few seconds.
Of course, the NRO told that civilians should not be too concerned with domestic surveillance as they strictly follow Executive Order 12333 – an ordinance which outlines what intelligence the authorities can legally gather on people in the US.
After the high-altitude balloons over the Midwest, now the US Goverment is developing an all-seeing artificial brain in the sky called Sentient to spy on you. What’s next tomorrow?

If the thing is all that sensitive it’s going to get awfully bored when it tunes in to my life.
Well, I will finally be able to tell them off, tell the Dem’s off and give all the lawless know-it-alls a beg piece of my mind and the go outside and give them the you know what finger! Nothing is sacred anymore. What in hell do they want to know about what decent, moral citizens are doing anyway. This is a super expensive machine for nothing, unless they get the real bad guys, like the Hollywood Whores from the State of Californiacate., the lawless Democrats, Bad Muslims, Chinese and god only knows who else. But, the way things are going, the bad guys will get away with murder and tyranny anyway! I have to say I am Pi**ed about this.
If our country would spend more time spying on our enemies we would be ahead in the hypersonic race with weapons..why is Americans the target of spying? Got me.i think we need to worry about a plan to safeguard the United States from an e.m.p bomb Wich will leave us defenceless to our enemies.this needs to be addressed by our government.
did you just now fine that out it has been going on for years where have you been??
