            It is possible that intelligence, as it exists in humans, is not computable. To think otherwise would be unscientific and much closer to a religious belief like the existence of a sky daddy who is always watching and judging everything you do.

              you hate the idea of something watching and judging you because you engage in practices that you are ashamed of and want nobody to know about.

                this always gets me
                why would an omnipotent being allow something that is against it's goals ?

                also the theory of darwinist evolution doesn't actually says that the first cell wasn't engineered, it just says that we were unintended (and that nobody cares about us), which is what scares the frick out of every religious freak (because they need to feel special)

                darwinist evolution is obsolete
                it's all neodarwinist, composed of the discoveries of both Darwin and Mendel
                who was Mendel? A Catholic Monk from the time of Darwin.

            a useful norm for a data set would be something like the byte count multiplied by some large constant and all of a sudden you have a curve that will perfectly fit the data and give perfect answers.

      I agree with the sentiment, but "applied statistics" is also too broad to characterize machine learning.

      >deterministic function
      I'm not a ZFC head, but even the people working with different frameworks call them differently. E.g. operations.

    AI actually is broader. It literally does encompass things like state machines as well as the applied statistical methods of machine learning.

    Machine learning itself is just a subfield of both Applied Statistics and AI.

      AI is literally just that which we call "AI". Using "AI" for a 500 line C script determining the behaviour of a video game character is perfectly legitimate.

        Consciousness is a spectrum, a gnat is conscious but not as conscious as an elephant or a human.

        Likewise a neural network or LLM might be conscious on some level, just like the gnat.

          Saying a LLM is conscious is nonsensical. No one even knows what consciousness is, and only biological organisms have developed it. It is a science fiction fantasy, algorithms are algorithms. The idea of conscious machines simply fits the current transhuman agenda of the moron class.

    Regression, SVMs, bayesian classifiers, etc. sure, but can you really say a neural net is stats based?

    • 11 months ago
      Anonymous

      Yes. Do you not know what a neural net actually is? It's a fit of summed and nested functions with fitted weights at every level of the nesting. It's mathematically just a nonlinear regression, and can be solved using nonlinear regressive methods, but because of its special form we are able to use very efficient numerical derivation (auto-derivatives).

      It's even covered in applied statistics books (mainly as cliff notes because it wasn't popular) in the 2000s.

      What ISNT applied statistics is going through and manually programming AI. Such as a massive if/then statements or state machines (which are what is often used in videogames because it tends to be satisfying enough).
