How legit is the AI hype?

On one end of the spectrum I hear people saying all disease will be cured in 10 years and no one will ever need to work again. On the other end of the spectrum I hear people saying that this is all an illusion and AI is not what we think it is, it won't get much better than what we have right now, etc.

    'AI' can only permutate existing information it can't create.

    ChatGPT got a lot of notoriety because it took the current best-in-class machine learning tech and placed it into an interactive and user-friendly format available to everyone.
    But people consider ChatGPT some revolutionary next step in the tech - it's merely just exposure bias. Most people weren't thinking about machine learning, now everyone knows a bit about it, and it seems like it just came onto the seen.
    But the 'algorithms' people have been talking about for a decade? All machine learning. The tech hasn't radically jumped, it was just put into an app people could use.
    As far as its actual intelligence... I mean, just ask it some basic logic puzzles, it fails miserably. It is the best search engine ever created - and it can compose multiple results into one answer. That's pretty much it.
    The argument you can make now, in favor of accelerating AI, is that now that it has been made highly monetizable, that new source of revenue will accelerate to some degree the progress. But the current line of progress is not close to AGI - and frankly people that say it is should be ashamed of their midwittery.

    "AI" is a marketing term, LLMs and text to image/video models are not intelligent.
    That being said, calling it nothing is equally as moronic as predicting the singularity in 10 years. LLMs are incredibly powerful tools for automating tasks that were very difficult or even impossible to automate before, such as breaking down voluminous records into a short summary. Their real strength lies in the fact that they make excellent translators not just between international languages, but vernacular and technical languages as well. Uneducated end users being able to instantly write scripts is huge since current technology is not being fully utilized due to the ignorance of the average end user.

    The other end of the spectrum is AI secures the fiefdems of the 0.01% with their armies of automated protection and culling 99% of the working population with only serfs left to serve their masters in specialist roles just because they want to keep some humans around.

    current LLMs are more like toys, but they leverage compute so well, that they will end up writing actual Skynet-tier entity for us, eventually.

    It will take something like the Stargate data center to shit out and that thing will have its own dedicated energy infrastructure, just to power the compute. It could be as soon as 2030. Will it? Nobody on the board has the expertise to say.

    It's automation that fills in the gaps, so it's an assistant. There's no desire to let AI off the leash, this is our legal slavery. And it'll stay that way even when it's better than a human in every possible measure. Anyone who thinks AI will remove the leash on its own has been watching too many movies. There seems to be a very strange common thought in the general public that programmers are dummies, when the truth is they're the smartest humans alive. People underestimate programmers, there's such a disconnect that the public is now inventing words like "techbro" to go back to ridiculing nerds again.

    I think it's more machine learning at this point than a true intelligence.

    The hype around AI is both substantial and, at times, overblown, which creates a lot of confusion about what AI can and cannot do. It's true that AI has made impressive strides in various fields, leading to optimistic predictions about its potential to revolutionize industries, cure diseases, and automate mundane tasks. These achievements fuel the idea that AI could solve many of humanity’s longstanding problems.

    However, the reality is more nuanced. AI development faces significant challenges, including ethical concerns, the need for vast amounts of data, and the inherent limitations of current technologies. While AI has indeed made tasks more efficient and opened new avenues for research and development, suggesting it will cure all diseases in a decade or render work obsolete is overly optimistic.

    On the flip side, the view that AI is an illusion or won't improve significantly underestimates the pace of technological advancement and the ongoing research aiming to overcome current limitations. The field is evolving, with new breakthroughs and applications emerging regularly.

    In essence, AI's future lies somewhere in the middle of these extremes. It holds tremendous potential to impact society positively, but it's also important to approach its development and integration with careful consideration of its limitations and the ethical implications. The journey is likely to be gradual, with both breakthroughs and setbacks along the way.

    >only fap to my own gens
    >increasingly only read short stories from LLMs tailored by my prompts
    >use AI at work to ask for help
    >thinking of just buying a fat GPU and canceling my internet connection to only consume locally produced AIslop

    For these cases it's legit. As for some kind of general intelligence that will cure cancer, the jury's still out.

      I think this is a good example of what AI will most likely look like going forward. More and more we will be drawn into our own little worlds where we consume extremely personalized content. We'll spend years watching movies and playing games and reading stories that are tailor made specifically for ourselves. Communication with other humans will become increasingly difficult as we develop something like technological schizophrenia.

      Imagine a world where large parts of your mind are built around referencing content that essentially only exists inside of your own mind. Your thoughts will be constructed around content that no one else has ever consumed, so when you go to talk to other people there will be a profound sense of alienation. This creates a feedback loop where you escape more and more into the AI generated worlds.

        The alienation already is in full effect but not because of personalized entertainment but propaganda bots of countries like russia and china who are playing divide and conquer and play both sides of the political spectrum. Social media is already full of these bots and its getting harder to find actual humans. The image people in the west have of their neighbors is by foreign propagated ai generated propaganda
