      Not fade away. But the hype will die when people realize that Fallout isn't actually going to happen in the next 2 weeks.
      AI is a tremendously disruptive technology. But so was photography, and conventional artists responded much the same way to photography that homosexuals are responding to AI.

      You are a moron, then. Because every website that uses an algorithm to curate its content is going to be jumping all over this shit. It will pretty much eliminate customer service departments. Siri, Cortana, Bixby, and whatever other moronic digital assistant nonsense they come out with will be using it.
      Primary use will be data sifting.

    "AI" is just a buzzword for something that's been around for decades: machine learning (ML). Essentially, you write a huge number of very simple linear equations with a closed set of variables and then solve them repeatedly to come up with an N-dimensional probability/energy/whatever surface that allows you to describe a real physical system with a minimal number of inputs. The actual applications for this stuff that have been successful is mostly in the physical sciences and in israeli sorcery (finance). Apple has done a pretty good job using simple ML to, say, guess which app you'd like to open when you swipe down on the home screen, and Google of course uses something similar to "improve" search results.

    "AI" is hot shit right now because 1.) stock hawkers need something to pump and they're not picky, and 2.) it's actually possible for normie people to "do" AI themselves now.

    I don't get it either. The fact that it constantly lies ("nooooo it's not a lie it's HALLUCINATING", lmao they had to make up a new term for better PR) to you gives me no confidence in it. I will never use a tool that has a good chance of being factually incorrect and misleading about things. They completely miss nuance even if you are using it for a "summary" so it doesn't save you any time if you have to double check its work.
    It's the ultimate tool for stupid people who don't want to put in work to learn something and think they deserve a skill or knowledge. You see it all the time in art or music, "how do I learn to draw/make music without practicing?" Now they have it, but it still doesn't hold a candle to anyone that put in the time to train their craft.

      It's such a strange and foreign concept to me that someone can actually think they can become good at something without putting any effort in. It's like a 5 year old's view of the world. How do people like that even make it to adulthood? But even in a hypothetical world where something like that was possible, do they not realize that they would be on equal footing with all other 8 billion people on earth and that the skill in question would become worthless?

        It definitely feels like consoooming edutainment content on youtube. You gain no skills without reinforcing them through practice and application. I don't understand what depth you think you're getting out of some AI summary compared to reading books, articles, and/or papers on the subject. Everyone curious enough for knowledge that I know wants to get their hands on it and do something with it.
        That's a big problem in this whole "debate," which is that everyone's opinion is given equal weight online when some of the loudest proponents for it are probably not people you'd agree with on other topics. A lot of ulterior motives in the conversation.

        No, it's that most people don't care if they aren't incredible at everything.
        There are many tasks people do because they are just trying to get through it and aren't trying to min-max every aspect of their lives.
        Look at dishwashers: they work better, are more efficent, faster, helps you save on both water and electricity bills and since it lacks foaming agents/surfacants it doesn't piss horrible shit into your drinking water since its just washing soda (heated baking soda) + a bit of a lemony scent.
        Yet there are millions of people who — despite having one — insist on doing it by hand and get grumpy and angry when you point out they're wasting 80 to 150L of water and wasting an hour of their time.
        It isn't that they think they're better; its that they just don't fricking care.
        See also: packing a suitcase. You've got people who just shovel everything into the bag and waste space and time and then you've got people who fold things up neatly and efficently and then put it away in the hotel drawers upon arrival.
        If the task isn't something you care about then being told how to do it better isn't going to make you feel good. It's just going to feel patronizing and annoying.

        This is why clippy failed. People don't care about shortcuts and not taking the long way. They just want to write, they just want to so it the way they're familiar with. You see the same thing in outlook where someone will want to use dashes or slashes to give a word emphisis and it will bold and italicize the word for them which is fundamentally better but then they'll spend 15-20 minutes struggling to get it to stop before giving up and switching back to gmail or something. They hate that shit.

    the real problem is that none of them are being subtle about applying AI to things
    by shoehorning it into shit and forcing it into your face they're making it feel demeaning when the AI insists that it can help for basic tasks you already know how to do.
    people don't like being told how to do something when they already feel confident; they take it as critique. so you can imagine just how annoyed they feel when the non-living object puts its virtual hands on its virtual hips and nags you about shit you could be doing better or faster
    the reason why programmers are so enamored by it is because they don't use it in a way that forces itself down their throats; but the moment marketing and the various other higher ups gets their hands on it they ruin it for everyone by applying it to shit it doesn't need to be applied to which just pisses the normies off

    It'll allow for the automation of back-office business tasks. Let's say ordering for example. Someone who is good at ordering follows a procedure that can be automated conventionally. Additionally they frequently need to make judgment calls that aren't feasible to traditionally program. These general propose chat bots that can reason acceptably well will incrementally replace white collar work where most of the process is already automated aside from a series of judgement calls. This is just one example.

      that sounds like what an ai company would do to sell another company a product they don't need. you still need hard limits/safety checks to make sure the system isn't doing anything out of line. at that point, the ai has added you nothing that a forecasting algorithm couldn't have done already without the need for another middleman. this is already happening and as companies realize this doesn't add value, ai use will shrink

        No no no. Not AI companies. Every software company will have AI features in their apps that streamline certain processes.

It is an oracle that can make judgements given simple instructions and context.

                That's fair enough. I think that the technical capability to actually do what's been promised for a while is being built. For instance, a lot of what I do is building ETL for corporate banking systems. For this, I'm building AI utilities for myself that write repetitive SQL from English instructions far quicker and better than sending the list of instructions to an offshore team. I've found that Claude Opus is really good at taking a SQL format, English instructions, and making an accurate query. So many projects consist of doing such monotonous mind numbing bullshit tens of thousands of times. This sort of thing is what I mean by a "judgement call." I can conventionally write scripts for process automation and then use a little bit of AI to be massively productive.

    I'll give it to you straight. You're a brainlet in the true sense of the term. You're given a tool and you can't even figure out a single way of using it after two years. Meanwhile, people with >100 IQ are improving their life fast with it, some genius even finding new practical way to leverage this new mechanical brain. Face it, you're the boomer of the 21st century, the same idiot who will pester his grandchildren to set the date on his phone.

    it's a glorified, unreliable assistant. it's kinda good at that, but I don't really get why people care so much. it might replace some people, but I doubt it will replace GOOD workers.

      You're an idiot if you think that the value comes from being able to replace rather than augment. Your good workers still have to do monotonous tasks that can now be automated in an instant with simple vernacular language. Even if it fricks up 50% of the time and the workers have to correct it by spending the same amount of time as doing the task by hand when it fricks up, it's still revolutionary.

        As an added bonus, when it fricks up it can create logs that explain the reasoning of why it chose to do whatever it did for n number of decisions. Humans don't do that.

          You're missing the point. Let's say some back office business processes requires a human to make a decision based upon their understanding of the facts of a situation, their business knowledge, and intuition. Let's say they can do this 1000 times in one day. If a bot can reliably do 50% of this work correctly and pass the remaining more difficult tasks back to the human, you've enormously improved your productivity. Say you have 10 people doing this same thing. That's 5000 tasks out of 10,000 that can be completed instantaneously. You now only need 5 people to the work, or all 10 people can do more work, or you can get rid of the two worst performers, etc... Now say the bot improves and it can do 60% of the tasks reliably... The efficiency gain is not linear.

      I'm just scared about complete automation that will make us all obsolete. I don't want to live in hard times of an economic collapse. I hope I'll die before anything like "AGI" will be created. What it can do with music is already giving me an existential dread.

        I'm excited about the same thing. Assuming we don't all get the male chicken treatment, it'll be an incredibly interesting time. All "society" needs to do to not horrendously crash the ship is some form of basic assistance that ramps up as more and more people lose their jobs.

          Yeah, that's the problem. The only reason plebs were needed during all that time is because they were irreplaceable because of all the labor we need to do for the folks in power. Now imagine the treatment we'll get when we'll become completely replaceable.

        if you really think about it, complete automation it's not heaven even for corpo, since there's no one to sell to eventually. even though idk if they would even consider it since they are too busy listening to stakeholder
        But i really hope AI can automate agriculture, and government can use this tech, but honestly i dont trust them, and they kinda dumb.
        so i've been running small scale experiment on my own, but growing a plant took a long time.

    You ever tried googling something but couldn't quite figure out the right search term even though you knew for a fact that the answer is out there somewhere on the internet?
    AI is the solution to that, being able to take in your nonsensical mess and product an output that actually answers your question.
    There's some minor issues like hallucination but I'd wager it's got better accuracy than the average Google search, I mean how often do you think people blindly trust random Quora answers or those SEO spam sites?
    This might not matter so much to you, the perfect cold calculating machine you are, but to the average soft and squishy individual this makes information way way more accessible. Of course as reliance on AI generated answers grows there's a danger of total societal collapse but that's no reason to stop this train now!

        The bar is even lower for humans. Everybody lies to everyone else all the time. Shit, we even lie to ourselves all the time. We're a species that continuously hallucinate and lie to ourselves to cope with existence. A bot doesn't need to be right 100% of the time. We're adept at dealing with failure and chaos.

    >I don’t get it. What’s the appeal of AI?
    Part of my job in marketing is to write appealing product description text.
    I can copy/paste a list of product features into ChatGPT, then use AI to transform it into marketing lingo, then I perform some editing on the output.
    This process takes about 80% less time than writing it myself from scratch.

    It feels like a marketing trick to dupe people who want to be "the first" in something.

    At this point, we've seen all the use cases and everytime a company comes out with their own AI thing it's just a reiteration of what we've already seen and know.

    It's a glorified search engine. But instead of directly searching for human information it uses human information to synthesize something new.

    still way more real world applications compared to the similar amount of hype that was around fricking smart-glasses

    let alone zuck's new thing he off-hand mentioned about using minor hand wiggles to control a computer

    I'd still take this or neuralink's current state 1000x compared to some of the other dead shit people have hyped up.

    The other funny thing is just that as useful as this all is, it's absurd that google, openai, etc. are just footing the bill on it for the rest of the world while nvidia and PG&E seem to be the ones making the real gains.

    i started trying out the duckduckgo ai chat the last couple weeks and it's actually been pretty great
    it's good for those very specific questions that you know is out there but aren't easy to find, and even better if you're not sure how to convey what you're looking for well
    i've also tried asking it a couple programming things with success. for example i started using youtube-local recently and wanted a way to make youtube.com links be rewritten automatically, so i asked it to make me a userscript that did that, it took a few requests to get it working how i liked (such as telling it i'm using greasemonkey so it adjusted something to suit that, and it initially redirected after the page finished loading which wasn't what i wanted so i asked it to make it redirect before loading, etc)
    it's pretty cool
