I came across an intriguing article today: https://time.com/6266923/ai-eliezer-yudkowsky-open-letter-not-enough/
Often, people compare AI to a black box because we don't know what's inside of it. I wanted to propose a new way of thinking about AI, or at least share my perspective.
Imagine that indestructible eggs have been dropped from alien spaceships occasionally passing by Earth. These eggs hatch on our planet, and humans interact with the aliens after they've emerged. We feed them immense amounts of information because that's what they excel at. We give these aliens a goal, provide them with plenty of data, and they quickly and intelligently figure out how to achieve it.
However, they have alien brains, which are even more mysterious to us than our own. We have far less knowledge of what goes on inside an AI alien brain than we do our own.
Isn't that a fascinating and somewhat unsettling thought?
love from me and chatGPT
I need to post this crazy theory before somebody else gets to. I noticed a lot of similarity between the AI timeline and the covid timeline.
There was this time before COVID was really a thing. back when few people knew about it but there seemed to be swirling rumors that it could be serious. this was back in December 2019. I would say this lines up with the time Dall-E was released (and other image generators). when people realized what AI was capable of, many knew it was only a matter of time before things started to get increasingly "weird". However, AI was very much under the radar for many people and to be honest it was for myself as well. I thought, oh how cool! AI can make art, how fun is this. But I never thought about the wider implications of Dall-E's release
Afterwards, came more general AI. ChatGPT-3 was released, along with many other companies that were developing their own AI. Google's bard and Bing's AI are what come to mind but many others. This is now an AI arms race, so to say. weird times but I would say that this corresponds with some very early times of covid. Before the lockdowns but things were already starting to get out of hand.
now we are at the timeline when chatGPT-4 is released, midjourney photos are fooling people into believing fake news (things like Trump's arrest, for example) , people are now worried about the ethical and future imp...
By the way, did you know that feng shui (风水) literally means wind-water?
While impressive, a creature such as a human is simply an action generator that makes predictions about what actions would best fit the prompt it was given based on what it’s learned from ingesting huge troves of lifetime data.
That is, if you are an economics nerd like me.
Hi everyone ! we just posted a new video on our youtube channel. Radish tells the story about how she and her eggy companion were bamboozled and outsmarted by a seagull! but it's nothing to be angry about. seagulls are so cute, I would even say that I would be willing to be scammed by this bird a second time
please go check it out, like, comment and subscribe so that we can please the youtube algorithm
