‘This Should Send A Shiver Down Everyone’s Spine’ – Humanity Left Folding Under Relentless Pressure As Artificial Intelligence Wins No-Limit Texas Hold’em Tournament

The new story from the IEEE Spectrum reports that for the first time ever, artificial intelligence has decisively defeated human poker players in a heads-up, no-limit tournament of Texas Hold’em.

The AI player named ‘Libratus’ lived up to its ‘balanced but forceful’ Latin name, leaving humanity folding under the relentless pressure applied by a machine which could learn from its own mistakes while defeating 4 professionals during the ‘Brains vs Artificial Intelligence’ tournament recently held at the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

According to the researchers who developed ‘Libratus’, the victory margin was so large they determined there was a 99.98 percent chance the AI victory was NOT due to ‘chance’.

And as we hear in the new 1st video below from RichieFromBoston, “this victory should send a shiver down everyone’s spine” as the AI player was able to not only soundly defeat but also fool its opponents in the process.

Richie reminds us that this wasn’t a game of chess ‘Libratus’ was playing but poker, a game played with ‘imperfect information’ as the players must deal with the uncertainty of two hidden cards as well as unrestricted bet sizes. They also report that an AI that performs well at no-limit Texas Hold’em “could also tackle ‘real-world problems with similar levels of uncertainty.”

And while poker-playing ‘artificial intelligence’ might not sound like anything that we need to be worrying about, another brand new AI story that the Drudge Report linked to earlier this week might cause us a bit more concern.


The new story from The Verge is called “Leaked Video Shows New ‘Nightmare-Inducing’ Wheeled Robot From Boston Dynamics” within which we see what might be the stuff of nightmares as seen in the photographs above and below.

Named ‘Handle’, the robot created to ‘handle objects’ also knows ‘how to throw its weight around’ and with a dynamic system that is balancing itself all of the time, seeing a ‘monster’ like this in action helps us to understand why theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has warned that AI could one day lead to the end of the human race. You can see more of this ‘AI monster’ named Handle in the 2nd video below.

Hawking warned us that “once humans develop artificial intelligence, it would take off on its own and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate” and “the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.” And as we learn from the story of ‘Libratus’ the poker-playing AI mentioned previously, AI is already taking off on its own, ‘re-designing itself’ to the point that it ‘left humanity folding under relentless pressure‘.


The story from The Inquirer that Steve Quayle linked to on his website earlier in January reported that the European Union had recently voted to grant ‘electronic personhood rights’ to robots. And before you exclaim “that’s got to be fake news”, IGC Technical Solutions also published a similar story as did Breitbart.com which reported “the European Parliament Committee on Legal Affairs has voted favorably on a draft report which proposes giving legal personage to robots.”

Claiming “the most sophisticated autonomous robots could be established as having the status of electronic persons with specific rights and obligations, including that of making good any damage they may cause”, they also report that “humanity stands ‘on the threshold of an era’ in which artificial intelligence could be responsible for a “new industrial revolution.”


Should the human race be concerned about the vast and rapid proliferation of AI around the world as Hawking and Quayle have warned us? In the final video below we hear about Quayle’s book Xenogenesis which reveals a future of terror that will soon face human beings.

Monsterous creations are being developed with secret technology in labs around the world. It is a Future of Unimaginable Horrors …created for our planet by unseen masters.

This horrifying future targets God’s original creation for corruption. Evil forces hope to use fallen angel technology to shift the balance of power from God and mankind to Satan and his followers; monsters will soon be presented as our saviours, with hollow promises of eternal life without the need of God or morality. This book offers hope. There is a way to avoid the dangers and ultimately save mankind…
