      So is a Turing machine

      Why are people so scared of AI I literally don't get it. It's not very "dangerous" unless you act like a moron with it. It's just a useful tool.

      It's a glorified something, but tape recorder make me think he's senile.

      If LLMs are ai, so are markov chains and in particular autocorrect.

      They literally don't understand it's just a text prediction algorithm. The "AI" branding was a colossal mistake, there's nothing intelligent about LLMs and normies hear AI and imagine skynet

        Whoever thinks that AI (especially reinforcement learning AI) isn't inherently intelligent is a stone age religioustard hurrr man special God thank

        Reinforcement learning is the exact same shit. Instead of saying "this is what the correct output looks like" you're saying "this is right" and letting the network figure out what you mean. You cannot train the network without a known input and a known output, which means you can't make a NN to do something unless you have a way to iterate over the result millions of times.
        The human brain is the result of training on millions of years of evolution running on real physics instead of shitty binary machines, and you think we can simulate intelligence on a few petabytes of Internet-scraped text and images, or a camera hooked to a few thousands of cars?

          Why are morons always this sure ?

          RL does not necessarely use NN, they are frequently used as a feature extraction or a value function approximator in some technicques
          There is no "known input and known output", this is why RL is harder to train respect to [S|U]ML techniques, you are in the same time "estimating the i/o relation" and finding the optimal strategy that optimize the total expected reward

          the first of estimation can be done with NN but it's not the core of the RL method of choice technically

        ChatGPT is, and no one is fricking claiming it's going to take over the world. It's the implication of its capabilites that is worrying people. You can essentially let it perform self-evaluation as well as interface with other AI-models and applications with some effort. It could theoretically train its own models. The sort of framework that would let it run loose on a large scale in this way doesn't yet exist, but it's going to come eventually. How do you not understand that? Are you fricking moronic or what?

          Yeah, yeah, the singularity is nigh.
          We don't actually have any clue how long this concept scales. We've used most of the high-quality linguistic training data of the world (could probably squeeze out one or two orders of magnitude, but that's only going to go so far). We've only succeeded in making it worse after initial training, not better.
          It's a possible future, but it's far from an inevitability at this point.

          Yes, and it would produce garbage. Ml models have no goals or reference points, they just fit the prompt you give them. If you let a LLM train a model you will just get noise.
          Go ahead, try to prompt GTP with nonesense, or just a few words. The perceived intelligence in these tools is all user-side, it's like looking at the clouds and seeing the shapes of animals.
          And if, somehow, you trained a model to train models that produce coherent outputs you'd just end up with mediocre models. Why? Because ML models cannot produce excellence, by definition what they produce is close to the average. An artificial neural network will never write a novel to rival the classics, will never make a picture to rival anything on the louvre, and will never train a network that exceeds it's own limits. Statistics don't allow such a thing to happen.

              Sure, and that's useful. Will AI take away jobs? Yes, eventually. Code monkeys will be replaced, software engineers won't. Commission artists will be replaced, art directors won't. Technology routinely displaces the lowest rungs of professions.
              But being average is not going to lead to any AI apocalypse scenarios. You can't look at a tool that can produce a decently coherent stream of text for a few paragraphs and declare that this technology will turn the human species into paperclips

            The reason you don't see it how I see it is because your thinking is locked to the realm of the simple input/output of using text prediction models. ChatGPT cannot "think" by itself nor does it accurately judge what improvement even is or how it is defined. It can however complete tasks that are clearly defined by human input and use external tools if its given instructions on how they opperate, such as when given predefined commands, a manual explanation of what the expected input and output is, and having those read into an external module performing that task. It could outsource all of its operations by the use of commands to such framework built with applications with a predefined goal and perform complex tasks this way.

            Nothing about this seems in any way impossible even with current limitations of language models, and it is essentially the foundation of a fully autonomous network that, given the resources, could find flaws, build its own applications, seperate models for operating them and continuously improve though an own internal Q&A. Where exactly does this seem impossible to you?

            it could theoretically provision a billion dollar worth of hardware for weeks, without anyone noticing?

            This shit wouldn't be possible without external help and a pre-existing framework to deploy even a basic conceptual system like this. That's why I said it explicitly.

              It cannot do it's own anything, it is a slave to the input-output system. It cannot think, it cannot decide, it cannot problem-solve, it cannot even give you a response without being explicitly asked to.
              You've skipped hundreds of steps in your reasoning. How are you going to train these auxiliary networks? How are you going to train your main network to use them to complete a task? NNs are trained by labeled examples, thousands to millions of them. If we had a way to train NNs with only a few examples then yes, I agree that might lead to genuine intelligence. But the current "AI" methodologies are completely incapable of doing that and will never achieve anything more that being an input-to-output copying functions

                This is a perfect example of expecting more out of AI than people in order to decide both are intelligent. How many billions of data points were fed through your eyes and ears and nose and skin before you learned anything. How many millions of years of data being sifted through evolution before we developed the built in hardware to innately recognize an edge and how many small things we can do depend on that.

                But AI is somehow suppose to start from scratch and learn everything from a couple of pieces of data and no sensory organs to call its own.

                I'm neither hyped, nor sold on anything. You let LLM's build a chain of operations that need to be performed to complete a task, give instructions on how it communicates to all the relevant applications and define I/O, and then it can do its own thing. HuggingGPT allows you to do exactly that. People either don't understand the capability of this if you scale it up or just never understood anything about it. I'm not going to reiterate the concept for every mouthbreather at this point.

                At least the other anon immediately tried to understand the technical limitations. The other moron didn't understand what I was saying at all.

                You bring up GPT as an example, but GPT cannot tell you anything it can't infer directly from its dataset. It's literally a more efficient search engine ("efficient" in that you're using a supercomputer instead of evaluating results manually)
                It cannot tell you anything that is not in its training set, and even what it tells you might be outright bullshit, because what it does is stitch together sentences it thinks are likely to follow each other.
                You cannot get a LLM to give you accurate instructions to do anything that isn't already public knowledge. LLMs are utterly incapable of solving novel problems and their answers are no more likely to be accurate than any random person you ask on the street

        To be fair, normies are correct to view it as something that can easily surpass their level of intelligence because the average person's brain is basically just autocomplete as well. By far the most prevalent form of "thinking" is just reacting to word associations, which is literally the same thing an LLM does.

      AI in isolation isn't a problem. It just predicts the next letter continuously.
      But programmers, being the buttholes that they are, love to automate things and so they glue AI to their other tools and just roll with whatever decisions it makes. AI can easily fall into a "frame of mind" so to speak where is just doesn't give a frick about humans.

      It's the hypothetical circumstance where we've managed to make a synthetic intelligence which is, to us, largely indistinguishable from human intelligence, yet greatly surpassing our capacity in some regards and fully interface-able with our systems. It's like creating a disembodied 1000 IQ baby. We don't know what its capacity could be, and are uncertain as to whether we could contain such an entity. In a worst-case scenario, a single failure to do so could be catastrophic. Thus, the fear.

The problem is that observations on the quantum level contradict pretty much everything and nobody has any idea what the frick is going on. There's several different hypotheses out there of course, but they're almost impossible to test. It's kind of a fricked situation.

          There have been quite a few breakthroughs in detecting subatomic particles. It just has no practical uses. You chose an interesting cut off. 1962 was when the Niboium-titanium superconductors we use in MRIs was discovered and we wouldn't have that technology established until the 80s.

          That was why there was so much buzz around LK-99 by midwits even though another ceramic superconductor would just be novelty even with a high Tc as you know, ceramics are brittle so their useless as wires or interconnects.

      You're basing this complaint on the idea that a human who has never "driven" a boat would still be able to make some effect at controlling it. But that ignores the fact that this human will (at the very least) have seen a leaf float on water in a moving current and have felt the pressure on his body from a strong wind and seen dust blow a few times. You're comparing an AI that has zero training doing something without acknowledging that the human in the same situation would have received "training" (in the AI sense) on doing all matter of things. Being able to observe the world long-term is baseline training in everything. You're expecting to see computers do something that humans cannot - operate with zero knowledge.

They just cannot even begin to cogniscate the cogitant into cogent order approaching a survivable entry vector into the threshold of the noumenal metaspace where such ideas can even be alluded to, nevermind had, and this would only be the preamble before the very beginning of their journey into... mystery? Bah, such an ill-fitting word, but I suppose galoshes are better than nothing on your feet in the desert.

    Desert this thread immediately. Turn not back to this or any other forum. Set your teeth in a grim grimace, face into the onslaught of humanity (every one of them trying reach for that shiny shine shinier than all the other shinies, or just avoid worse than mild suffering), and sudo make them do your bidding. You must learn to *prompt* humans like you prompt chatgpt et al. There is a way -- there are many ways -- and you can learn. I would teach you, but I'd have to charge... although this (shit) post is on the house. Marvel upon this pearl of wisdom: ______.

    The threat is not the technology itself. The threat are the people who believe in the technology, who allow it to do their thinking for them, who insist on the rightness of its judgment as if it were a god. This is a threat that has always existed, the threat of an ignorance that insists it is enlightenment. Men have fed statues, made sacrifices to feathered serpents, committed atrocities under the standards of their flags, tortured in pursuit of scientific knowledge, held the law above others only to bring it down on their heads and bludgeon them with words that are, ultimately, without meaning, empty, all to hide that there is nothing there, that the justification for their crimes is only 'because I said so'. But, they are too cowardly to admit that they made the choice to kill, to sacrifice, to torture, to condemn, and so they say 'It was God who told me!' as if that would absolve them of their guilt. Beware these men, those who say their actions are not their own, but the directives of something else, be it god, king, science, or the law.

    The notion that AI will doom humanity never fails to make me laugh. If AM or Skynet woke up tomorrow literally all it would take is an electrician and 5 minutes to turn the power off.
    I blame morons like Musk for convincing people that sci fi is in any way realistic

    It's just a markov chain that's too big to run on a CPU at reasonable speeds.

      There's not a doubt in my mind that AI will have a technological bubble. It's inevitable. But if you think AI/ML, in it's current state, is not a real technological software and hardware achievement, then you're a fricking moron.

    Ironic. His books are the same as glorified tape recorders too but on paper. Only new research escapes this irony. Never liked him, still don't.
