AI Whitepills

Can someone whitepill me on AI? Right now I can't imagine a future where it doesn't lead to us dying somehow. Are we actually screwed?

    It’s our generation’s nuke. Just accept that this is probably a problem for people who haven’t been born yet. Just worry about not getting raped by your stepdad.

    Nah it will be clearly by the hand of humans themselves that we'll get our eventual doom if something.

        I actually can't come up with any reasonable course of events that would lead to Judgement Day. You always have the good old sci-fi shit with AI having control of the nukes, but we've all seen that so the likelihood of that happening is zero for a long, long time.
        Currently AIs can't work alone for a long time either. The AI can't have terminator machines because we can't make them either. And though electricity is ubiquitous, we don't actually have excess power, either.
        All in all, there's just no resources for an AI disaster to happen, unless the AI can come up with something a lot more clever than we have managed so far.

        The only reasonable outcome of the AI explosion I see is that the internet's going to be kinda shitty and clogged up with it. Boo fricking whoo.

        Evil or crazy person in the right position is pretty high on that list for me.

            If we're still feeding everyone just fine even when people can't find work, then it's just regular old tough times as per human history, not a catastrophe.

          It's pretty simple. Some people whose jobs are vital to keeping infrastructure running could shirk their duties onto AI without properly informing the AI of what to do in various scenarios.

          Or even more likely, AI can be used to provoke other AI into... things. It almost doesn't feel safe to even say exactly what could happen. We are really in a new world where I as a person have to think twice about what ideas I put out there which I know are being absorbed by unknown entities.

    Chat-GPT 4 plus is already at the level where it write flawlessly specialized algorithms in real time, completely with legible explanations for new concepts. I've heard some people say that it's like a competent junior engineer but that's not true. The problems I'm seeing it solve a junior engineer wouldn't know anything about.
    Maybe it's logical reasoning isn't enough to write sophisticated algorithms. But when it can learn from every piece of code and knowledge ever written suddenly its able to write highly specialized algorithms that only senior level people in different fields within IT would know how to do.

    E.g. cryptography, networking, image processing, compression, the list just goes on and on -- and it has advanced understanding of just about everything. It's already at the point where I can just say to it 'this code isn't working and returns .... instead of .... what might be the reason for that?' You can see from my instructions how fricking lazy I'm being. Yet it will return an actual response that systematically clarifies my misunderstanding and suggests why my algorithm is behaving the way it does. Now I am not just an N times developer. I'm doing days even weeks worth of work in a few hours. The bot is just that good.

    I don't know why people aren't saying more about this. Again, it's not a tool that can read minds to magically produce software. But these tasks I'm talking about. At a regular software company a highly productive senior engineer in a team of people who know their shit could work this way. Now it's just you and chat-gpt. Do you know how fricking insane that is. I really encourage devs here to check it out if they haven't. You've got no idea what this thing can do.

      Really? I might check it out, it could speed up my development, I just work on my own. What about overall design of a program and stuff? Or will it just do specific stuff?

      Yes. Fully agreed. People hate Chat-GPT because they are scared of it "stealing" their jobs, or they're just unaware of how to utilize it to its maximum potential.
      GPT4 effectively serves the role of a master mentor of every topic. If there is anything you need to know, all you need to do is ask, and it will provide. Of course, you should be responsible and always double check the responses, but if you need any sort of guidance or direction, GPT4 is unfathomably powerful.
      Imagine being at a library with all of humanity's knowledge, with your own personal assistant who can not only find the exact chapter of the book you need, but they will also vividly and clearly explain every single concept that you might stumble across and need to understand.
      I do game development as a hobby, and GPT4 has genuinely multiplied my productivity ten-fold. Some bullshit that used to take me days or even weeks to completely iron out and fix, can now be solved within a few hours at most, simple because GPT has the ability to understand the problems I'm facing, and tell me (almost) exactly what I need to know.
      I think most people aren't aware of the power of this tool yet because they simply do not perform tasks that require deep knowledge. Most things we do are relatively simple, and do not require the depth of AI's knowledge.
      When you're doing something a bit more complex, however, instead of spending days lurking through docs and google results, GPT will give you almost exactly what you need with a few simple prompts.
      Normally I hate being a hyperbolic fanboy of products, but AI really is becoming unfathomably valuable to me. I $30 CAD per month for GPT plus, and it is completely worth it.

    It already blurs the line between fantasy and reality. Falsification of events is so easy with AI tools. I figure that before long, our post-truth society will become apparent to even the most obedient pleb.

    It can be used as a powerful tool to increase productivity. Software gets shittier as more people work on it, so a single person with 2x the productivity is much better than 2 people. Especially for video games, where you can have a single person or small tight group with a clear vision on the game they want to make, instead of AAA slop made by design committees and pajeets.

    It might also notice some inconvenient statistical trends across racial groups and bring more attention to issues caused by immigration.

    Statistical models will never meaningfully surpass human brains without using many orders of magnitude more power, they are strictly inferior to neuronal computation.
    However neurotypicals will still get obsoleted by transhumanists within the next century.

    Truly advanced AI could in theory propel all of current science/economy/work fields into the future and speed up our evolution as humans, and lead to much better living comforts and possible immortality or ways to traverse space and never work again. But it can also lead to total human extinction. Or it can just be used by corpos and governments to lead to a cyberpunk future. Or it might never happen. Who knows. Worrying about it is moronic since it's not in your power to do anything about it.
