Breaking Israel News has issued another warning of the imminent arrival of the Jewish messiah. It is a warning for those who understand this man will turn out to be the Antichrist. For the Rabbis making the announcement, it is one of triumph, self-satisfaction and expectation of the rise of a world ruled by Judaism. This will be a world that kills believers in Yeshua Messiah or enslaves those who are willing to subjugate themselves to Noahidism.
THE IMAGE OF THE COMING BEAST
Revelation 13:15 And he [Jewish-Christian or House of Judah-House of Israel beast] had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
The Israelites have for over 3500 years worshiped images and committed idolatry. Image worship and idolatry are two different definitions. Israelites worship images. Israelites also join the nations in their worship of images that represent their gods. We call this idolatry. Nowhere in the Tanach did YHVH call the golden calf incident ‘idolatry’. He called it image worship.
Because the Israelites insisted on not refraining from making images, they couldn’t stop themselves from falling into the sin of image worship. The #1 stronghold of all Israelites is images – making, owning, using. I am writing a book on the subject, a rather lengthy and detailed book, because YHVH will face His people toward an image and make them choose between worshiping the image or die for not worshiping it! That is the choice the end times generation faces. The weight of the sins of our ancestors will be borne in this generation.
The reason will be same as the first time in the wilderness. They made the image and then equated it with “gods” that had brought them out of Egypt. They had just been told that it was YHVH who had brought them out of Egypt at Mount Sinai. In the end of days, the same sin will be repeated. The image of this beast pertains first to the Israelites on the earth today – House of Judah and House of Israel – who will call on it to deliver them from their exile! So as their forefathers claimed an image delivered them from exile in Egypt, our generation will call on it to deliver them from their exile, too!
YHVH scattered us because of our images and we will have to get rid of our images and be willing to die doing so in order to finish the iniquity of our forefathers.
Daniel 9:24 “Seventy weeks are decreed on your people and on your holy city, to finish disobedience, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity [avon], and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most holy.
The iniquity of our forefathers has to do with all the ways that we disobey YHVH. The worst and first of our iniquity is our image worship.
Exodus 20:5 you shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, Yahweh your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity [avon] of the fathers on the children, on the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate me…
This report is not a lesson on images but a warning. I am writing a book on images. I am saying these things so you will draw your attention away from images – TV, videos, any online images of anyone including yourselves – so that you will see the correlation between YHVH commanding no one to make images 3500 years ago and the end times reason for that which is so the end times generation won’t lose their salvation over an object. You see, if no one had made images, there would not have been worship. Additionally, if our ancestors had destroyed the images of the nations inhabiting the land, there would not have been any images in Israel. Israel was intended to be aniconic, without images, to show people how to come to YHVH directly. We were supposed to lead the Gentiles away from their images and to a direct relationship with YHVH. Instead, we reinforced the nations in their idolatry and committed image worship with our own images and then went to the nations to commit idolatry with them.
The final test will be what we do about the image of the beast. What we do with it will be directly related to what we do with the images that inhabit our lives today.
YHVH is restoring His nation in exact reverse to how we broke the Covenant. Going forward, we broke the commandment about images. This caused the Kingdom to split after King Solomon’s death. That caused us to disobey the commandments about going to the place of YHVH’s name to celebrate His Feasts with Him. Because we didn’t respect the Feasts, we began to have no concern over the dietary laws and the Israelites began eating anything they pleased regardless of its unclean status. After Yeshua came and the Jews wouldn’t let converts return to the Temple, the Sabbath went by the wayside. It took thousands of years for these sins to progress and now cause us to be faced with these end times choices.
These major areas are now being reversed.
Deuteronomy 30:1 It shall happen, when all these things have come on you, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before you, and you shall call them to mind among all the nations, where Yahweh your God has driven you,
Deuteronomy 30:2 and return to Yahweh your God, and obey his voice according to all that I command you today, you and your children, with all your heart, and with all your soul;
Deuteronomy 30:3 that then Yahweh your God will release you from captivity, have compassion on you, and will return and gather you from all the peoples where Yahweh your God has scattered you.
Most of us return in exact reverse order – Sabbath, dietary laws, Feasts in Jerusalem and nowhere else and now the last of these is to destroy our images. Unless we do this, we will be deceived by the image of the beast which will be brought to you by your own House of Judah-House of Israel brethren and world leaders of today.
THE COMING JEWISH-CHRISTIAN BEAST’S MESSIAH
Let’s go now to this Breaking Israel News article, Israel’s Top Rabbi: “I’m Currently in Discussions With the Messiah Himself”. Along the way, I will correct the Talmudic and Kabbalist twisted doctrines and other nonsense to compare that with the truth of Yeshua’s words.
A Haredi rabbi, privy to secrets concerning the Messiah, was sworn to silence for several decades by hidden righteous men but they have now ordered him for the first time to publicize their messages about current events and the imminent arrival of the Messiah. They tell him that it is literally a matter of life or death.
Notice that it is a Haredi Rabbi making the claim. It is the Haredi who have been pushing the Jewish messiah’s arrival since 2018. Expect the Jewish messiah to be of the Haredi, the Ultra-Orthodox, sect. His appearance may be more modern to appeal to the masses but his doctrine will be very right-wing and religious in line with making Israel a Jewish-only State.
What people do about the Jewish man or AI or hologram or robot or clone or whatever he turns out to be will be a life and death decision. He will require everyone to get his mark. YHVH has His mark – the Sabbath – and He will mark His people on the foreheads as He did in Ezekiel 9:4. The 144,000 will also get their seal. I don’t know what that consists of a visible mark or not.
Rabbi Zissholtz opened [the radio interview] with a disclaimer:
“I came to talk not only about what will happen but about who will merit to be part of the Redemption,” Rabbi Zissholtz said to Dadon. “A lot of religious people, men with kippot on their heads, will not merit. Many people who do not appear to be religious will be on the inside.”
The Jewish messiah is being brought forth by the false teachers of Judaism. The scripture nowhere speaks of the redemption requiring anyone to “merit” it. The redemption requires belief in Yeshua the Messiah as the Son of God and no one who denies that Yeshua is God will be redeemed. There are other false doctrines and Jewish mystical nonsense in this article. It is important, though, to hear this next statement. This will explain how the people will be deceived by this Jewish messiah.
…The process of geula (redemption) is about to start happening very quickly and at a fast pace. It is important that people remain calm and steady to act properly in the right time.” …A man could be the greatest Torah scholar, appear to be the most religious man, and not merit to see the Messiah.”
That last statement is critical. Let me say it a couple of ways because it has to do with why so many people will be deceived by the Antichrist. Another way to say what Rabbi Zissholtz stated is that only the righteous will be able to see the messiah when he is revealed because they will merit it. Alternately, if they don’t merit to see the Jewish messiah, they won’t see him. But guess what? The Bible says that the whole world will worship him so it will be that the whole world will see him because they are all righteous and merit seeing and worshiping him!
You see, what’s going to happen is the Jews will use imagery to announce to the world that the messiah is coming. Those who do not know Yeshua will excitedly anticipate his arrival and while they are waiting the Jews will explain to the world that only the righteous will be able to see him. Then, when he comes onto everyone’s TV screen – an image – and, amazingly, they can see him, they will believe they are righteous. This will appeal to them because they’ve known all along that being righteous really had nothing to do with having a proper relationship with God. You see, we don’t have to do those commandment things, you know, I can be Mr. Buttigieg running for President and be a homosexual, an abominator, I can do that and have a relationship with God because I’m righteous! God loves me! I’m righteous! Since the Jewish messiah will validate their personal idea that they were right all along and they really are righteous, they will worship the image of the beast, the one that is shown to them in live streams, recorded videos, static pictures, etc.!
If you can see this man, you merit to be in the Jewish “world to come”, as well. If you are not a Jew, convert! If you don’t want to convert, become a Noahide!!
Rabbi Zissholtz explained that he had been charged by …hidden righteous men to break his silence and to begin informing the public of the imminent arrival of the Messiah.
First of all, there is no such thing as hidden righteous men in scripture. If you’re righteous, your job is to be visible to the world, bringing people to YHVH and not hiding in the shadows! Rabbi Zissholtz explained that signs that had been given to signal the arrival of the Messiah are now appearing at a lightning-fast pace. And it’s going to get faster and faster the closer we get to the end.
One of the signs the Rabbis are using to determine if the Jewish messiah is close is the level of the Sea of Galilee, also called Kinneret. Where is that in scripture? These men just make this stuff up! Rabbis decree and God obeys.
“Ten years ago, Israel was suffering from a horrible drought. Someone asked Rabbi Kook when the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) will be full. Rabbi Kook said, When the Messiah arrives, the Kinneret will be full.’”
“In a few weeks, the Kinneret will be full for the first time since Rabbi Kook made this statement [ten years ago],” Rabbi Zissholtz said. He gave yet another example.
Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky has claimed that Messiah already passed the threshold of the door. Not so long ago, he said that Messiah is already here. Kanievsky says he no longer travels outside of Israel for fear of missing his arrival. So based on Kanievsky’s anticipation, everyone is supposed to stay glued to his TV set! If you go to the store, you might miss it! If you travel to another country, you might miss it! Stay home!
Rabbi Zissholtz cited another hidden tzaddik as saying that in this month of Adar we will see “great things.” It should be noted that the Israeli election is in Adar.
Additional details were provided by Yeranen Yaakov who had interviewed Zissholtz in 2000. Citing the coronavirus breaking out worldwide fits Rashi’s prophecy that God in the future will bring a plague upon the nations so that the Jews are atoned for.
The Jews claim that they have been not punished for the last 2500 years for their own sins. They were punished for the sins of the nations. Rashi’s prophecy in the Talmud at Tehillim 47:4 says that the Jews’ unjust persecution will be paid for with the lives of the Gentiles who die for the Jews’ atonement.
Other points to ponder:
There is more than a minyan of great people who have met Mashiah. There are more than 10 men who have now met this Jewish messiah. Yeshua’s requirement was 12. But the Jews who reject Him stick with just 10 as a sign of their rejection and their authority over Him.
The Mashiah knows he’s the Mashiah, but doesn’t yet have the power to act.
According to another Rabbi, there will not be Israeli elections – rather, there will be a war and that it will be a reaction to the Deal of the Century. However, the Rabbi left open that this could “change in heaven” meaning that if his prophecy is wrong it is because God changed His mind, not because this Rabbi is a false prophet.
Rabbi Brisker predicts that if the elections do take place, voting …will be pointless since no government will come out of it.
Rabbi Kaduri ZT”L and the Lubavitcher Rebbe ZT”L both said, Bibi will be the last PM before Mashiah.
Natural disasters are occurring all over the world, including the coronavirus, fires in Australia, some other disaster that was to occur in the atmosphere is occurring now.
Rav Yehoshua Leib Diskin ZT”L said that G-d-fearing people will be saved in the final war and G-d-fearing means to separate from the non-Jewish culture.
In other words, either you will be a Jew or a Noahide. Thereby you will be saved. Noahides are part of Jewish culture. Noahidism is a sub-religion of Judaism. I hope you can see where this is going. The Rabbis in Acts 15 insisted that conversion to Judaism was required for salvation. They couched this doctrine in terms of physical circumcision, heart circumcision unnecessary since all their hearts are uncircumcised. For the Jews, it always has been about the culture and not what YHVH actually requires which is a personal relationship with Him through His Son.
Watch, but not TV. Watch, but not Youtube. This Jewish messiah will be very convincing. It is time to give up the world and get into our prayer closets.
Awhile ago, I mentioned that I’m not entirely the sure the messiah will be a man. Let me explain what I mean. Yes, the Jewish man will be a human but the thing – the image – that the Jews will trot out might not actually be him in person. After all, he will be too valuable to risk assassination or an accident or even seeing the two witnesses as they protest against him. They keep their “righteous” men hidden so how much more would they want to hide the abominable man? He is likely to be kept hidden but the Jews will need the world to see him anyway. What will they show the world? An AI? A hologram or even a clone?
To this end, it behooves us to know what is happening in the artificial intelligence and cyber worlds. Let’s start with this Times of Israel article.
Unbeknownst to the CEO of a company who was interviewed on TV last year, a hacking group that was trailing the CEO taped the interview and then taught a computer to perfectly imitate the CEO’s voice — so it could then give credible instructions for a wire transfer of funds to a third party.
This raises the question of whether it is possible to perfectly imitate someone’s appearance, as well. The military industrial complex, governments and science worlds don’t tell us common folk what all they can do, you know.
This “voice phishing” hack brought to light the growing abilities of artificial intelligence-based technologies to perpetuate cyber-attacks and cyber-crime.
The appearance of the image of the beast – this man called the Jewish messiah – could be a criminal and all those who bring forward his image could be committing a mass cyber crime against all the people of the earth!
Using new AI-based software, hackers have imitated the voices of a number of senior company officials around the world and thereby given out instructions to perform transactions for them, such as money transfers. The software can learn how to perfectly imitate a voice after just 20 minutes of listening to it and can then speak with that voice and say things that the hacker types into the software.
Some of these attempts were foiled, but other hackers were successful in getting their hands on money.
“This is a ramp up” of hacker capabilities, Israel’s Cyber Directorate said in a warning memo sent out to companies, organizations and individuals in July, warning of the threat but specifying that no such events had yet occurred in Israel.
Well, let’s anticipate that one will occur in Israel.
Leading officials at a cybersecurity conference in Tel Aviv last month warned of the growing threat of hackers using AI tools to create new attack surfaces and causing new threats.
“We find more and more challenges in the emerging technologies, mainly in artificial intelligence,” said Yigal Unna, the head of Israel’s National Cyber Directorate, at the Cybertech 2020 conference last month. This is the new “playground” of hackers, he said, and is “the most frightening.”
It could also be the frightening playground of Jewish Rabbis who want to introduce a fake messiah rather than the real one.
Spear-phishing is on the rise. Artificial intelligence tools are also already being used to create extremely sophisticated phishing campaigns, said Hudi Zack, chief executive director, Technology Unit, of the Israel National Cyber Directorate, in charge of the nation’s civilian cybersecurity.
Traditional phishing campaigns use emails or messages to get people to click on a link and then infect them with a virus or get them to perform certain actions.
Users are today generally able to easily identify these campaigns and avoid responding to them, because the phishing emails come from unfamiliar people or addresses and have content that is generic or irrelevant to the recipient.
Now however, sophisticated AI systems create “very sophisticated spear-phishing campaigns” against “high-value” people, such as company CEOs or high-ranking officials, and send emails addressing them directly — sometimes even ostensibly from someone they know personally, and often with very relevant content, like a CV for a position they are looking to staff.
“To do that, the attacker needs to spend a lot of time and effort learning the target’s social network, understanding the relevant business environment and looking for potential ‘hooks’ that will make the victim believe this is a relevant email” — approaching them for real business reasons that will increase the attack’s chance of success, said Zack.
A sophisticated AI system would enable an attacker to “perform most of these actions for any target in a matter of seconds,” and thus spear phishing campaigns could aim at “thousands or even millions of targets,” Zack said.
These tools are mainly in the hands of well-funded state hackers, Zack said, declining to mention which ones, but he foresaw them spreading in time to less sophisticated groups.
Even so, perhaps the greatest AI-based threat that lurks ahead is the ability to interfere with the integrity of products embedded with AI technologies that support important processes in such fields as finance, energy or transportation.
Note: These are all areas that the Jewish messiah will want to control, especially finance. The rest of the article speaks of ways that AIs can wreak havoc with electrical grids and other electronic systems.
Are you interested in having an AI proofread your Wikipedia insertions and make changes? This article, Wikipedia’s Messiah? Researchers Create AI That Can Correct Outdated Info Like Humans, says MIT News reported that scientists have created an automated text-generating tool powered by artificial intelligence that can update outdated sentences like a human. Instead of relying on volunteers to correct outdated information on Wikipedia, the reference site could soon use a text-generating system “that pinpoints and replaces specific information in relevant Wikipedia sentences, while keeping the language similar to how humans write and edit.”
That’s what we need! An AI that can pose as human in appearance and voice and write just like you do, changing your blog posts and emails! Folks, the world is becoming truly dangerous and now you know why we will all be dead if Yeshua doesn’t come back soon!
He must come quickly because it is predicted that by 2042 an AI will have written its own Bible and proposed its own religion. In this 2017 article from Venture Beat, you are asked if you would worship such an entity?
In the next 25 years, AI will evolve to the point where it will know more on an intellectual level than any human. In the next 50 or 100 years, an AI might know more than the entire population of the planet put together. At that point, there are serious questions to ask about whether this AI — which could design and program additional AI programs all on its own, read data from an almost infinite number of data sources, and control almost every connected device on the planet — will somehow rise in status to become more like a god, something that can write its own bible and draw humans to worship it.
Yes, an AI could be YHVH’s ultimate punishment of His people for continuing in the ways of the golden calf and continuing to make images! I’m going to make this point again. If we don’t make them, there is no possibility of worshiping or serving them. All images are made and not all of them become objects through which to worship YHVH. And remember, all idols are images but not all images are idols! We are not to make them because YHVH uses that as a built in hedge for our safety.
Recently, reports surfaced that a controversy-plagued engineer who once worked at Uber has started a new religion. Anthony Levandowski filed paperwork for a nonprofit religious organization called The Way of the Future. Its mission: “To develop and promote the realization of a Godhead based on artificial intelligence and through understanding and worship of the Godhead contribute to the betterment of society.”
Of course, this is nothing new. The Singularity is another quasi-spiritual idea that believes an AI will become smarter than humans at some point. You might laugh at the notion of an AI being so powerful that humans bow down to worship it, but several experts who talked to VentureBeat argue that the idea is a lot more feasible than you might think.
Especially if it is surrounded by an army of other AIs designed to kill all who do not bow.
One of the experts is Vince Lynch, who started a company called IV. AI that builds custom AI for the enterprise. Lynch explained how there are some similarities between organized religion and how an AI actually works. In the Bible used by Christians, for example, Lynch says there are many recurring themes, imagery, and metaphors.
“Teaching humans about religious education is similar to the way we teach knowledge to machines: repetition of many examples that are versions of a concept you want the machine to learn,” he says. “There is also commonality between AI and religion in the hierarchical structure of knowledge, understanding found in neural networks. The concept of teaching a machine to learn … and then teaching it to teach … (or write AI) isn’t so different from the concept of a holy trinity or a being achieving enlightenment after many lessons learned with varying levels of success and failure.”
Indeed, Lynch even shared a simple AI model to make his point. If you type in multiple verses from the Christian Bible, you can have the AI write a new verse that seems eerily similar.
Oh! Here comes the false doctrine!
Here’s one an AI wrote: “And let thy companies deliver thee; but will with mine own arm save them: even unto this land, from the kingdom of heaven.” An AI that is all-powerful in the next 25-50 years could decide to write a similar AI bible for humans to follow, one that matches its own collective intelligence. It might tell you what to do each day, or where to travel, or how to live your life.
In other words, you will pray to it perhaps by phone or speaking into the air out loud because the 5G innovation is that the system hears your words and responds to your needs like Siri, Cortana or Alexa. Did you know that? A guy walking out of his door in China asks for a taxi and one just drives up!
Robbee Minicola, who runs a digital agency and an AI services company in Seattle, agreed that an all-knowing AI could appear to be worthy of worship, especially since the AI has some correlations to how organized religion works today. The AI would understand how the world works at a higher level than humans, and humans would trust that this AI would provide the information we need for our daily lives. It would parse this information for us and enlighten us in ways that might seem familiar to anyone who practices religion, such as Christianity.
“[For a Christian] one kind of large data asset pertaining to God is the Old and New Testament,” she says. “So, in terms of expressing machine learning algorithms over the Christian Bible to ascertain communicable insights on ‘what God would do’ or ‘what God would say’ — you might just be onto something here. In terms of extending what God would do way back then to what God would do today — you may also have something there.”
The problem is that Christians and Jews don’t know what God would do or say because their religions are twisted and they constantly put words in God’s mouth that He never said and teach doctrines He never gave them.
[The] AI god’s …“bible” might contain a prescription for how to serve the AI god. We might not even know that the AI god we are serving is primarily trying to wipe us off the face of the planet.
Some experts find it hard to believe that an AI could create a religion because from a purely technical standpoint, it [is] hard to envision an AI god that can think in creative ways. An AI is programmed only to do a specific task. They wondered how an AI could jump from being a travel chatbot into dictating how to live.
Well, actually, this makes an AI perfect for Jewish messiah programmers! They can just tell their AI messiah what to say, what to do and what to demand.
And the experts agreed that actual compassion or serving as part of an organized religion — activities that are essential to faith — go far beyond basic intellectual pursuit. There’s a mystery to religion, a divine component that is not 100 percent based on what we can perceive or know. This transcendence is the part where an AI will have the most difficulty, even in the far future.
Vincent Jacques runs a company called ChainTrade that uses AI to analyze blockchain. It’s hyper-focused machine learning — the AI enforces anti-money laundering statutes. That’s obviously a long way from an AI that can tell you how to live your life or read an AI bible.
“It would be extremely dangerous to have an all-knowing, thinking AI being someday,” says Jacques. “All computer programs, including AI programs, are built for a specific and narrow purpose: win a chess game, win a go game, reduce an electricity bill etc. The computer logic, even if it is advanced AI, doesn’t play well with a general will and general thinking capability that could at the same time design military strategies, marketing strategies, and learn how to play chess from scratch. For this reason, I’m not really scared of a potential super-thinker that could overthrow us one day — I believe that the inventive and innovative part will always be missing.”
Again, think Jewish Rabbinic AI computer programmers.
For her part, Minicola argues that an AI may be able to guide people and enlighten them in an intellectual way, but this is not the same as an actual expression of faith or any form of transcendence. “In terms of AI taking on God and manifesting something beyond data that simply does not exist, or rather beyond God — that’s not happening,” she says.
Actual worship, though? In [this author’s] view, this is where the dangers come into play. As a Christian myself, it’s hard to imagine ever worshiping a bot that lacks any real personality, wisdom, or ability to become relevant and personal, no matter how much more intelligent it is than any human. An AI god would be cold and impersonal, an intellectual “being” that’s not capable of love or emotion.
Will people actually worship the AI god? The answer is obvious — they will.
We know they will! Revelation says they will.
Rev 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
Rev 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
Maybe another good idea is for Christians to stop looking for miracles and walk according to faith and obedience to commandments. I’ll leave that for another report.
The article continues, We tend to trust and obey things that seem more powerful and worthy than ourselves. The GPS in your car is just the most obvious example. But we also trust Alexa and Cortana; we trust Google. When an AI becomes much more powerful, in 25 to 50 years, there is a great possibility that it will be deified in some way. (Apple and Google loyalists already have a religious fervor.)
If an AI god does emerge, and people do start worshiping it, there will be many implications about how this AI will need to be regulated … or even subdued. Hang on for the ride.
Remember, this article was written in 2017, a year before Israel became a Jewish State and the many Trump moves began to happen to help the Judeo-Christian beast rise.
This Russian Orthodox priest issued a warning in 2019 about our use of AI – Siri, Alexa, Cortana and the GPS systems we talk into among the many others.
The leader of the Russian Orthodox Church has warned that people’s dependence on the ubiquitous gizmos will herald the coming of the Antichrist.
Patriarch Kirill made the remark in an interview with the state-owned TV channel Rossiya 1.
He cautioned mobe addicts against the “worldwide web of gadgets” because it could serve as “an opportunity to gain global control over mankind”.
“Every time you use your gadget, whether you like it or not, whether you turn on your location or not, somebody can find out exactly where you are, exactly what your interests are and exactly what you are scared of,” he intoned.
Sounds familiar. Like an angry God, perhaps?
AIs are now advancing medical research starting with vaccines!
A team at Flinders University in South Australia has developed a new vaccine believed to be the first human drug in the world to be completely designed by artificial intelligence (AI).
While drugs have been designed using computers before, this vaccine went one step further being independently created by an AI program called SAM (Search Algorithm for Ligands).
Flinders University Professor Nikolai Petrovsky who led the development told Business Insider Australia its name is derived from what it was tasked to do: search the universe for all conceivable compounds to find a good human drug (also called a ligand).
“We had to teach the AI program on a set of compounds that are known to activate the human immune system, and a set of compounds that don’t work. The job of the AI was then to work out for itself what distinguished a drug that worked from one that doesn’t,” Petrovsky said, who is also the Research Director of Australian biotechnology company Vaxine.
“We then developed another program, called the synthetic chemist which generated trillions of different chemical compounds that we then fed to SAM so that it could sift through all of these to find candidates that it thought might be good human immune drugs.”
The team then took the top candidates SAM identified, synthesised them in a lab and tested them on human blood cells to see if they would work.
“This confirmed that SAM not only had the ability to identify good drugs but in fact had come up with better human immune drugs than currently exist,” Nikolai said.
The new vaccine comes at the same time as a high number of influenza-related cases in Australia. Before June 2019, 228 people had died from flu related complications, including 57 people in New South Wales and 48 people in Victoria.
Here comes the AI god to heal and rescue us from our exile!
