Nov. 26 (UPI) -- China is planning an underwater sea base, a latter-day "Atlantis" that runs on artificial intelligence that could aid Beijing in defense operations in the South China Sea, according to a recent press report.
The South China Morning Post reported Monday China is building the center that could become the "first artificial intelligence colony on Earth."
The project is named after the ancient Greek underworld of Hades and was launched at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing.
Chinese President Xi Jinping may be behind the project. In April, during a visit to a deep-sea research institute at Sanya, Hainan Province, Xi told scientists to do something never done before.
