Kindred A.I. Wants Monkeys in Exo-Suits Commanding Robot Armies

The co-founder of a quantum computing company envisions a future where humans and monkeys take charge of mass robotic forces by strapping into exoskeletons and commanding A.I. George Rose, the founder of D-Wave, has given little away about his involvement in Kindred Systems (also known as Kindred A.I.), but new patent applications have shed light on what the mysterious startup is doing. A U.S. patent application, “Facilitating device control,” was filed by Kindred earlier this month and published in August. It describes an exoskeleton suit that takes movement data, transfers it to the cloud and passes on commands to a team of robots. The machine’s output can be used to train artificial intelligence on how to perform a task, useful for training robots how to work in an industrial setting.…
