AI MAKES NO MONEY

I knew it
All they're doing is paying electricity bills for nothing
I bet the data they're collecting from people interacting with the AI is worthless too
and most people still aren't bothering to use it at all

                A lot of times it's simply not worth it to automate human labor, even if it's insanely repetitive physical work. A fairly simple conveyer belt, packaging, and loading system that only needs one worker to load the product into the hopper could replace 4-6 people, but something like that can cost half a million dollars or so, it's still cheaper to just pay some mexican women local minimum wage.

          yea, i was going to but i just can't be bothered anymore
          there isn't a single known, meaningful case of AI replacing workers where the AI actually did a better job than the workers themselves

          the anon the mentioned call centers is one of those examples
          dealing with shitty phone AI is horrendous and trying to force the stupid AI to get you a real person so that you can fix a client's issue with some proprietary modem/router feels impossible as it wastes my fricking time

          MAYBE AI could get somewhere but i think AI right now is where VR/AR is right now
          it needs at least a decade or more for it to be able to do anything actually useful

          for instance, VR porn is pretty great but VR isn't innovative enough to get most people onto it no matter how good the porn is because it's too immature; the same applies to AI

          again, MAYBE AI can take over but it'll likely be so long that only your children's children will be able to benefit from it

            That is not a bug this is a future.
            For many companies there is no sense for having customer service. This is why customer laws forcing serving on them exist. AI call center is token service to dodge laws. If no laws they wouldn't have any service at all.

            this time it is different. since the average IQ of this site is around 90-100, people haven't been able to discover anything beyond the racism and coom filter. however, prompts that will benefit at most 1000 people around the world are also banned on chatgpt.

                I think we will get automated construction for most of the work within 50 years. Most repair work will remain but then with a human working with some worker robots. As we built better buildings with service bots in mind that repair work will slowly shrink.

                I also think skill and insight jobs will go before construction work. Doctors are already out performed by simple flow charts. Programs that write program will take over coding jobs. Management jobs will be killed off by competition of companies with more AI at more levels.
                The customer service is already a mixed bag most customer service can be done by Indian call centers are rarely move up to a while person in the USA.
                Once we get combat robots police bots will follow up a bit later. Cops are generally the most expensive budget item for a city and replacing police that frick up and bring down lawsuits on the city will be replaced by modified combat bots, likely working with a human operator either remotely or as a squad leader.

          The major difference is that AI plays into the idea that "someday soon human labor will be obsolete".
          I get that the tech is interesting and novel but this is an such an absurd idea only made more absurd by the fact that people have been predicting this sort of thing for generations.

          Thousands of years ago before computers were a glint in your ancestors eyes fears and hopes regarding human labor ending have existed. BUT THIS TIME ITS FOR REAL AND ITS GONNA HAPPEN IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS.

            Do you think that AI will never be able to do the average intellectual task like writing code or business reports?
            If you think it could do that eventually, but not soon, what do you think the barriers are between now and then?
            Or do you think that the market will generate lots of new jobs for people with below-average intellect?

              I think that when the dust settles and we can actually see what’s going on AI will be a lot less world shattering than people are anticipating.
              In fact, life will probably go on as normal, evolving progressively as new tech slightly augments our regular lives but likely never brings ASI or super abundance or anything remotely close to the various tech utopia / distopias AI grifters are trying to sell us on being right around the corner, certainly not within our lifetime

                That sounds like you're basing your conclusion on vibes, or by analogy to previous technological advances, rather than building a model of the dynamics from first principles.
                If you accept that the tech gets better over time, why shouldn't that create an exponential feedback loop, where this year's tools help produce the next year's tools?
                That's been happening in tech for the past 50 years or so, which means it would be surprising if it stopped suddenly.
                Unfortunately humans aren't good at keeping track of exponential growth in our heads, as we are tempted to look backwards and see linear growth, and assume that the path ahead will have a similar amount of linear growth.
                If an AI could do 1% of your job last year, and 2% this year, that doesn't mean there's 98 more years until it replaces you, it means means there is just 6 years of exponential growth.
                You're right that human civilization has generally adapted to the new tools so far, but what's different now is that the tools we are making are increasingly able to operate by themselves without any human needing to use them.
                This means that we're starting to transition from a civilization where humans use tools to one where human capabilities are unable to add any value.
                Fortunately the value will still be created, as long as there are consumers to take part in the market economy, which means that money needs to be taxed from the producers and paid directly to consumers.

      Is it worth 5-10 years of losing money on AI when they could be just doing the R&D internally?
      Many companies leveraging AI to save money right now are doing as companies like OpenAI lose money on running the systems. If they can't bring costs under control, prices will have to go up and then we will find out if AI actually saves money over having people do the work instead.

          a lathe can make 100k a year
          a new lathe cost will be distributed over 10 years for 40k/yr, meaning that if we buy a new one now, in the year of our lord 2024 he'll have a net 60k increase in revenue

      Companies won't spend that money though. You think companies aren't required to make all of the money possible right now. They are.

      What you are describing will be relegated purely to start-ups. Because big companies, the ones ironically with the money to make this change, are shackled to making maximum money right now, which AI isn't going to do without a 5-10 year investment.

            >That's a lot less than the twice the transistors every two years of Moore's Law. One reason is because nodes usually came every two years, but N2 is also expected to come after 3 years. Another is that the nodes usually increased density by 100%, but recently they've been increasing density by 70%, and more recently they've only been increasing logic density by 70%, cache and IO are getting very hard to scale and this problem should only get worse because future chips should have a smaller proportion of logic transistors in it, since it's the only thing scaling well. TSMC said their N2 node will only increase density by 10%. On top of that, new nodes are getting more expensive.

              Really? You're measuring the progress on AI hardware by looking at the chips inside iToys? Nvidia just announced that they are having to double the speed at which they release new generations of their GPUs because of the pace (and profit) of AI development.

              I completely agree, but it shows that what people want isn't "general intelligence", they want something that can replace any human at any task.
              That's understandable, as most people want robot butlers, and middle managers want an AI that will let them sack all their staff, and CEOs want AI that will let them sack all their middle managers.
              The irony is, though, that AI companies will focus disproportionately on the narrow task of making an AI that can automate the process of improving AI, so we might end up with an ASI before we have an "AGI" that can satisfy the "make a cup of coffee in an unfamiliar kitchen" test.

    AI is the future. You can't deny this. Right now its still developing and emerging but it will continue to get better and is already capable of some high quality things that require only minimal human intervention. You should buy low on AI right now instead of fear mongering or denying it, because it will only continue to grow. You'll be like the guy who said the internet was a fad in 1995.

            I don't see this problem, most AI solutions are X-to-Y. If you build a product around text-to-speech / text-to-image / image-to-text / etc, you can simply replace the model out as newer and better ones are released. Just treat it as a black box that you build around

    Automation technologies largely cause the tendency of the rate of profit to fall, because they (by definition) require minimal human labor inputs to replicate at ~0 cost until they hit market saturation. Which is to say: even if AI reshapes society, gayMAN could eat a loss. So far the real winners are the ones selling shovels during a gold rush, like Nvidia.

    Troglodites and grognards on this board still using Windows Vista don't think AI is useful, but like any new technology it actually matters how it's implemented and not how much money you can throw at it.
    Microsoft is the king of throwing money at stuff to make imitations that don't make money back, remember the Zune? All the R&D to make Microsoft Edge before they just gave up and turned it into a Chromium fork? The Windows phone?
    The fact that people still think Microsoft is the canary in the coalmine is bizzare, they're not, they're just a functional monopoly that can get away with constantly failing forward because their operating system is so ingraned into every facet of IT that they literally will never go out of buisness, at the very worst the goverment will absoutely bail them out, considering more than half of goverment infrastructure runs on their operating system.
    Any "This thing in tech is dying becasue Micro$oft can't make money off of it" is just a signal for "I'm so ignorant that I think everything in tech is the Microsoft corporationm, and sometimes Apple, and nothing else"

    Nah, AI is definitely gonna replace humans but not in a way that normies expect. Tasks like programming are very tedious and require a 100% certainty that it works and doesn't have hidden bugs. Imagine debugging a complex multithreaded program that AI wrote - it is equivalent to debugging a multithreaded native program in assembly. Also the company that makes the AI possibly has legal issues with companies that use that AI to make their software. All in all - software is probably finna be resistant.

    First ones to go are translators/support agents/call center people/doctors(not surgeons, for disease determination)/advocates etc. Last ones to go will be the hentai addicted, coffee guzzling, cum smelling autists from the sysadmin branch. End times come when these guys are replaced.

    This is why all the companies instantly started lobbying for "AI licenses" when open source generation started advancing so quick.

    They're really fricking spooked by how quickly foss software was able to catch up, despite what fud about Dall-E 3 and GPT-4 superiority would currently have you believe. Models trained on one task (e.g. a model trained on only python) on home hardware can beat GPT 3.5 at that task, small models can run (poorly, but advancing slowly) on phones and laptops. This is foss beating their efforts. The current leadership of Dall-E 3 and GPT4 is immense, but it's because they have enough server power to run multiple models on huge racks of teslas. Dall-E 3 passes your prompt to GPT4, which is in itself rumoured to be 8 different models working together, and then passes that back to Dall-E. It's immensely, hugely wasteful but gets results now.

    Bing is forcing out GPT-4 so quickly and tanking so much cash on Dall-E 3 because they want to be the name for AI and eventually convince people to pay for it by putting it in office 365 and going to large corporations and offering "hey can we make a model for u pretty please", and eventually being the name people go to for AI models once they shrink enough that everybody can get high quality results. The idea that home hardware can run even poor quality results for free while they're spending billions on server racks scares the shit out of them, because it means they'll always be racing for higher quality results and spitting it out as soon as possible to widen the gap, never being able to stop upgrading hardware and keep that gap going.

      Cars replaced horses because they were cheaper to use and maintain. They also didn't shit in the streets.

        They also made tremendous amounts of money for large corporate interests and governments while vastly improving the quality of life of those who had access to them. AI will do the exact same thing.

          Which do you think is cheaper to employ? A living human that works 8 hours a day, needs healthcare and other benefits, constantly b***hes for more pay while trying to minimize the amount of work they do, or an AI that works 24/7 at 1000x the speed and efficiency of their human counterpart with the only cost being electricity and bandwidth?

          What you are describing won't ever exist, therefore the human.

          the AI which is really intelligent will quickly surpass humans and couldn't be employed, in that case the AI would be the one employing humans for tasks requiring physical presence
          this is the biggest issue with those wanting to get rich from AI: any really intelligent AI will make you and investors irrelevant

    They're still in the data mining/dependency creation phase. Once the silicon gets efficient enough and people are hooked enough and the models are big enough profits are supposed to be inevitable.

          i think that anything a neuron can do, can be simulated by a chip
          i also think that human intelligence isn't the limit to how intelligent a system can be
          maybe we don't have the necessary algorithms yet, and maybe hardware progress is slowing down, but i don't think we're anywhere close to the limits of ai

    1 ai replace 1 job but then requires 2 humans to parse and double check for the sake of legal accountability

      Criticising someone else's work is always much easier than doing the work itself, so it's more like 1 human will check the work of an AI that replaces 10 humans.

    Since when has big tech been profitable anyway? AI is profitable but not when they're giving the service out for free for millions of users for something that requires a billion GPUs to run.

    AI gives companies excuses to make their product a service. Paying a monthly subscription for Photoshop is stupid. But with AI? Now they can justify it since your hardware can't run a local copy of the AI.

    All software will incorporate some form of AI as an excuse to always require an Internet connection and a subscription. It will make money.

    Microsoft doesn't care about profits they just want to use the primitive version of "AI" as a stepping stone to create a global control grid for the new world order.
