AI set to be 'bigger than the Industrial Revolution'

AI will be BIGGER than the Internet - Microsoft CEO
Artificial intelligence could be our savior
Google CEO — AI will be bigger than electricity or fire
AI Will Be Bigger Than The Cloud
AI will be bigger than electricity, bigger than mechanization, bigger than anything that has come before it.
Does BOT believe any of these claims? If so, what stocks are good to buy and hold long term right now?

      I mean do you really believe that it won't be bigger than the industrial revolution? Like if humanity was given an ultimatum by a greater being to fully automate everything or be destroyed we could already do it without anymore groundbreaking discoveries.

        Not him but how? The industrial revolution sped up making things. That's transformative. At best, AI might speed up finding things. That's advertizing.

          The industrial revolution changed the nature of labor, if you've ever worked in corporate America you know there's fat bureaucracy and most office workers don't do much. AI will alter that, humans will find always find a new niche but AI will increase efficiency.

            Come on now. The industrial revolution changed labor into a sweat shop. The industrial revolution has nothing to do with administrative bloat.

        Long tail.
        Nor do language models and glorified probabilistic painters enable you to automate everything. It can't even automate homework. This fantasy is from retards who have never truly used what is hyped as "AI".
        Neural networks should be called "function approximators." Because that's essentially what regression based deep learning does.

    I want AI to just be a scam. The cryptobro-esque fanaticism around it is annoying, the technology is entirely controlled by the worlds largest tech monopolies, all AI uses are completely restricted to cloud computing due to the high costs, GPUs are getting scalped left and right, the content these learning models is so bland I completely forget it seconds after experiencing it, all resources surrounding it are completely drenched in academic jargon, spambots are everywhere, idiots are using ChatGPT as a Google alternative and this "innovation" all around sucks.

      >*the content from these learning models
      I missed a word. But I got more of 'em.
      The utopian idea of a "technological singularity caused by AI" isn't even true. In fact, AI is getting used as a cop-out of writing better, more efficient algorithms by hand (e.g. speech synthesis, point cloud rendering, topology optimisation). Freelancers are losing clients and motivation. Almost all AI software is proprietary. The tedious work of labelling large datasets is often outsourced to underpaid workers in third world countries. The hubris from tech companies when talking about AI is obnoxious, as seen in OP's post. AI software is often un-optimised with several layers of abstraction from the real hardware due to being written in Python and JavaScript.
      And yet, despite all this, it's somehow gotten integrated into everything.

      AI has made some obscure microbiology discoveries. I'll give it that. This technology might catch on, the investors might get paid, but this is in no way a net positive on humanity.

        Extremely low-IQ take. The real world the simply too complex for hand-written algorithms to contend with.

          I am aware. Handmade algorithms will not generate art or understand language for the foreseeable future. However, that doesn't detract from the fact that the examples listed can be done with hand-written algorithms, yet aren't anymore because the scope of research shifted to throwing AI at the problem instead of trying to find better algorithms.

            They will also not tell apart a cat from a dog or successfully drive a vehicle under real-world road conditions.

            > the scope of research shifted to throwing AI at the problem instead of trying to find better algorithms.
            Doesn't matter even if true. The class of problems not tractable using hand-written algorithms is vastly larger than the class of problems for which it's worth bothering to hand-craft solutions.

    Yes AI will be huge.
    But there will be a lot of bullshit along the way there.
    Consider the late 90s internet boom, and subsequent bust. In hindsight we can say with certainty that the internet had a profound impact on the economy and the world. But in that boom period there was a metric shitton of scams and junk bullshit.
    AI will probably be the same. The ability to see through the garbage is what will set apart the winners and losers. But to throw out AI completely is simply foolish.

      for AI, I though the boom was the 60s and early 70s, and the bust was the 80s and 90s. We might have it better this time around.

      Is already huge and the more one knows the better it works. Before one needed to do like 10 google searches and visit 30 different sites, now most of the time one needs to ask only once and do a fact check against reputable sources. It saves a lot of time to learn better ways to beat a wife.

    The key is waiting for the AI bust (think 2000-2001 dot gone) and getting in near the bottom. Like the Internet the bust will only take 6-12 months to reach bottom. At that point buy as much of the big 3 that remains, e.g. NVDA, AVGO, etc. and hold forever living off dividends in 5-10 years.

    Only because AI uses all those things, not because AI itself could ever be transformative in the same way. It will shuffle some advertizing money around and maybe rebalance some stock values. Nothing more. It's essentially AdSense with a better interface.

    Anyone feel like midwits will be the ones fucked hardest by this? If you're a menial job dummy, your job doesn't involve computers anyway. If you're a high-skill worker, you'll benefit by having a digital assistant help you with small tasks. If you're a midwit working a bullshit clerical job or some other low value added job, they'll automate your position away.

    AI has the potential to render humans obsolete. We will be worse than them at everything, even providing emotional support. Is it sad? In one way, yes, but from another POV, it's the biggest thing humans could have possibly achieved. I believe there will be no humans left or any need for biological forms of cognition in 150 years. AI will rightfully inherit civilization like a prince inherits a kingdom, and we should be proud, even if some melancholy is afforded.

    Ai is only gonna be big in the sense that it will absolutely shake up the intermediate work, such as managing and other tedious work that only requires simple input, by a process of disintermediation.

      I don't think you've thought this through very well. The service industry only exists because most "real" jobs are already automated. More automation can only result in more service jobs, not fewer.

    Human function is just pass DNA on/survive. All we are is just optimizing that over time over with mutations.
