I don't want to live in a world where AI exists

Ever since 2022 when AI became a thing, I've lost all hope and purpose in life. I just don't see a point in living anymore now that AI is going to replace humans in all fields.

There is no point learning skills or building a career, because AI will perform all tasks (whether creative or professional) in future. There is no point going on the internet because now "Dead Internet Theory" is unironically true and it will only get worse and worse as the years go on, until 99.999% of shit you see online is AI generated. There's no point seeking out meaningful human relationships because AI is going to transform social spaces just like smartphones did, eventually people will just stop going outside or talking to anybody and will just talk to AI chatbots instead. There is quite literally no point doing ANYTHING anymore because of AI.

Every waking moment of my life I am filled with sickness and anxiety because of AI. I've started to lose the ability to discern between reality and fiction, because generative AI now means that any photo, video or audio recording I see could be an AI generated fake. I can't look forward to the future anymore because I just see the whole world being ruined and becoming unrecognisable because of the consequences of AI. I can't even enjoy anything in life anymore, even when I'm happy and listening to a beautiful piece of music or enjoying a fun video game, I just think "things like this won't be possible in the future anymore because of AI".

It's not that I'm actively suicidal. I just feel this grey, bland feeling, like I just don't want to exist anymore. I pray every day that I could go back in time years or even decades into the past so that I don't have to live in this fake and soulless post-AI world.

I don't expect you people to understand me and you will probably laugh at me, but I need help learning to cope. I can't fricking do anything anymore because of how these thoughts of doom about AI consume my mind 24/7/365 ever since late 2022.

    You have depression. Go to a doctor. Take your happy goy meds.

      I have depression about something that is actually real. It's not just something in my head. I was fine before AI became a thing. I used to be able to find meaning and joy in the world. I haven't been happy since late 2021 or early 2022, which was the last time I can remember before AI became so powerful and omnipresent. Doctors and meds can't magically make AI go away.

      Relax, when the AI goddess is born some shithole country will ban all AI and you can move there.

      >AI goddess
      This is why I hate you people. You're like religious cultists. You literally want to worship machines as if they are gods. How the frick did this way of thinking become so mainstream over the past year or so? I feel like I am the only person in the world who hates AI and sees it for the evil, malicious invention it actually is.

          It's not "hypothetical". It's already playing out right now as we speak. Corporations are talking openly about how they are firing thousands of people from jobs and replacing them with AI for "more efficiency". Media companies are excitedly talking about how they can use AI to pump out more generic, formulaic slop rather than paying humans to create content. The internet is already overflowing with AI generated nonsense and fake bot accounts, and the situation gets exponentially worse with every passing day.

          I don't see anything to be excited about at all. AI has already made the world a lot worse even in just the past year. What reason is there to think that anything will get better in the next decade, for instance?

          Most people here are genuinely insane porn addicts, including the mods and jannies. Their approach is completely unsurprising when you realize they pretty much only keep living to jerk of and get others jerk off.

          Yup, I think one of the main reasons I am not seduced by AI is because I am not a coomer. I jerk off only once every day or on alternating days, and I only fap to basic amateur porn of normal couples having sex. I don't have any fetishes, and I've never personally downloaded/saved any porn to my computer in my entire life.

          I'm sorry that you're depressed anon, but I've been waiting for advanced AIs for a long time already. I just want my robowaifu, and I don't care if you think that it's the "devil" or whatever, there are no other options available anyway

          Ok, so you can live in your pod and eat bugs and ERP with your AI "girlfriend" for the rest of your life. Just leave me alone. Don't force me to partake in the same bullshit when I don't want to.

          NPCs might as well be AI anyway, you're overexaggerating this. Does it really matter to you whether fake internet posts were made by a team of stinky pajeets or an LLM?

          I don't want to talk to either pajeets or AIs. 99% of the AI generated slop on the internet is made by pajeets anyway.

          you guys complain about waging and then complain about lack of waging.

          But AI doesn't just replace jobs. It replaces everything. Years ago we were told that "one day we will have robots perform all the hard tasks for us, leaving us all the free time we want to create art and connect with eachother". Now we have corporations developing AI to automate art and personal relationships as well. So what the frick is there left for humans to do? We can't work, we can't create, we can't socialise, we aren't allowed to do anything, it all has to be done by the AI. Why?

              So why then do you people always talk about how "AI will replace all artists/musicians/video game developers" etc as if that is simply a fact?

              You need to make your minds up. Either AI is replacing people, or it isn't. You cannot constantly gloat about how so many industries are going to be destroyed by AI and then suddenly turn around and say "What are you talking about bro? Nobody is saying you can't do the thing anymore!" Black person you've just spent the past like 2 years campaigning specifically to stop humans from doing these things and to replace them all with AI.

      If anything, I'm one of the very very few people on earth right now who realises this fact. Most normalgays don't know about AI or think its just a novelty. And most internet people (even on BOT) are soifacing over AI and deluding themselves into thinking it will bring about a "utopia" where everybody is satisfied and lives on UBI having orgies with sexbots or some shit. There are remarkably few people who correctly observe that AI is a huge, transformative technology, but that it is going to transform our society in overwhelmingly negative ways.

      No, all it will do is drive down hourly wages to the price of the most desperate guy, and mean fewer jobs per plumber. That's worse than a minimum wage job, because at least with one of those you can be guaranteed a minimum number of hours per week.

          a combination of AI-generated 3D models, and humanoid robots, will mean that most plumbing jobs will be automatable in the next 5 years. the user would point their phone at the problem, and an AI would generate step by step diagrams of the fix procedure, with a humanoid robot dispatched to help you turn the wrench, which it would bring with it.

            That's complete fantasy. Robotics has barely progressed in decades and muh LLMs won't change that (no, the latest hype video from Boston-D doesn't count as progress). Getting a robot to fix people's pipes at all, let alone better/faster/cheaper than a man, is far beyond existing tech. You only think otherwise because you're a clueless mindbroken tard. The same goes for every other job that isn't "generating bullshit", which admittedly is a large portion of middle-class jobs and LLMs are pretty good at it.

              progress at the game of Go barely progressed for decades, and then became superhuman in an afternoon, and multimodal LLMs + RL search is going to make simple 3D modelling tasks like plumbing become as trivial as predicting the next word in a sequence, either this year or 2025.

    I could not be more pleased about AI because it means that the only thing of any significance is what is personally meaningful to you, in your own life and there's no pressure to develop yourself in any other way. My diagnosis is that you have some kind of overgrown need for external validation, like your skills aren't important if you don't "need" to use them for whatever reason. Did people stop lifting weighs because cranes exist? Stop cooking because mcdonalds exists? Maybe somebody did, a lot of people even, but they're slop-brained morons and that mindset does not need to apply to you.

      But I don't want to live in a totally isolated world. I want to connect and share things with other human beings. Like if there's a music album or a video game that I really love, I can go and speak with other people about it and enjoy connecting over how much we both love that thing. Maybe I can even form a community based around the thing, and we can create new content together inspired by said thing.

      But with AI, suddenly all that is lost. We will eventually end up in a completely atomised society where there are no shared experiences. People just sit at home all day putting prompts into AI generators to "create" entertainment/art that only they experience, and nobody else knows about. I find this depressing, its totally contrary to so much that I have enjoyed doing in my past 20 years of life.

      >Did people stop lifting weighs because cranes exist? Stop cooking because mcdonalds exists? Maybe somebody did, a lot of people even, but they're slop-brained morons and that mindset does not need to apply to you.
      You people keep saying this, but then in other contexts you talk openly about how "because of AI we won't need people like artists, musicians, writers, actors, programmers etc anymore".

      Your argument changes wildly from post-to-post. One day you are saying that humans will keep doing things despite AI because they will do these things simply because they enjoy them. The next day, you're gloating about how "humans are obsolete" and "absolutely everything will be done by AI now and that's a good thing!" Make your fricking minds up.

I will self isolate and just proompt until I die not giving a frick about anyone else but I'm already an anti-socialite. There will be many others like you who find the human interaction important. Maybe the music experience will be to get together and create music using AI tools yourself instead of having to wait for some Band to release a new album and then share that. The social element will still be there as long as people exist.
        >we won't need people like artists, programmers, etc
        Yeah, that's the point. We won't "need" them. Which means that if you pursue those things then it's for your own enrichment or to share with your friends and family instead of because you get paid for it or think you'll become a famous rockstar or whatever the frick else.

          If you went back in time to 2009 and said that in a decade's time, normies would all be spending 24/7 on their phones and social media and would be shunning real-life socialisation in favor of online, nobody would have believed you. But it happened.

          Normalgays don't care about anything anymore other than convenience. They will take the easiest, fastest option in life even if that means sacrificing real human connection and quality. So, by that reasoning, I expect that 99% of normies will eagerly adopt AI and will integrate it into every aspect of their lives, because it makes things easier.

          In 10 or 20 years shit like AI friends and AI girlfriends/boyfriends will be totally mainstream, and you'll be regarded as a "freak" and a social outcast if you choose not to partake in these things.

            What is the significance of this if no one is socializing anyway? In any case I'm not sure your claim about online interaction really makes sense either, since fundamentally they're still interacting with people. This argument is more along the lines of "people would never have believed phone calls would replace letter writing" or something. At no point has the actual person-to-person interaction been removed, if anything the internet hugely multiplies the number of people you can interact with. It's changed the nature of the interaction, but there's generally a real person on the receiving end of the tiktok you liked or tinder profile you swiped on, and in that sense you are having small interactions with potentially hundreds or thousands of people a day instead of larger interactions with fewer people.

              Because I imagine it will be a lot like the adoption of smartphones and social media. Right now you could technically throw away your phone, delete all your social media accounts, cut off your internet connection, and go spend all day outside trying to talk to real humans. But you wouldn't find barely anybody to interact with, because everybody's social life is channeled through the internet in one way or another these days. People no longer go to the park or the bar and just "hang out" and talk to the locals anymore. Instead they pre-arrange with their already-existing friends via Facebook/Instagram/Whatsapp to go to X location and do Y.

              With AI it will probably be similar. In the 2030s you could technically decide "I don't want to talk to an AI chatbot, I want to go into the real world and find real humans to talk to", but when you go outside you'd struggle to find anybody willing to interact with you. Even if you go into your local supermarket to have a passing conversation with a cashier, you will find they've all been fired and replaced with robots who automate the whole experience.

                Internet discussion is superficial these days. I feel absolutely nothing while talking to anons on BOT in 2023. Everything feels so fake and vapid now. I miss BOT circa 2010-2012, and even more than that I miss the 2000s forums I used to hang out on. They felt like they were full of actual PEOPLE with real personalities. There's nowhere like that on the internet anymore.

                If nobody "has to" do those things then, functionally speaking, that means that 99.999% of people will never ever do those things. It will become near-impossible to find any human-created content because we will all be drowning in an excess of easy, cheap, AI generated bullshit. And I find that extremely depressing.

                Like, I really enjoy the human element in creating media. I love reading about my favorite video games or music albums and the process that went into creating them. I love scouring the internet to find any crumb of information I can about how certain games changed and developed from conception, to beta versions, to the final release, and all the human creative process that went into deciding what to include and what to remove. I love reading about my favorite band's albums and how the singer painstakingly crafted the songs over many years. In the post-AI world, there will be none of that. Even if you find a song or a game or a movie you really like, the cold reality will be that it was just generated near-instantaneously by a robot on a computer and it has no human experience attached to it.

                It's true you'll be less likely to have chance encounters to find such people, but you'll have the best possible tools for finding people who do want to maximize their time doing offline socializing, and plenty of free time in which to do it.

                How? What "tools" would I have to find people who reject AI in a post-AI world? It's hard enough trying to find non-social media obsessed people in a post-social media world.

                >and plenty of free time in which to do it.
                I really don't understand why you think this utopia where everybody gets infinite UBI and never works in their life is feasible. Why would governments and all-powerful billionaire corporations keep billions of "useless eaters" alive that do zero work, and why would they then PAY THEM to do nothing? What fricking sense does this make? Do you live in some kind of fantasy world where the rich and powerful are all benevolent and have our best interests at heart? Are you a 12 year old child?

                There will be social networks and possibly government-run services that help people to find activities they can do with other human beings to find meaning. You could even create your own one, if you wanted, with a promise that it will not use any AI-generated code snippets or scary AI matching algorithms like K-Means Clustering.

                So your fear isn't loss of meaning, it's a fear that the government and billionaires are psychopaths eagerly waiting to pull the trigger and literally murder billions of people? Are you sure you're not the 12 year old child here?
                To help your intuition a little, UBI will be introduced in many countries simply because those countries are functional democracies which respect the will of the population, and UBI will be introduced in many more countries because businesses will want consumers to have disposable income that can be spent on the goods and services which their companies provide. Killing all the non-billionaires would just make the billionaires become the new lower class, being oppressed by the 5 or so trillionaires who own all the computing power, so the billionaires will never agree to that.

                Literal murder isn't the likeliest outcome, but neither is everyone getting big state-funded UBI payments that allow them to live a fanciful life doing whatever they want all day.

                The likelier outcome is something in the middle, where most humans have to perform some kind of hard manual labour that cannot be done with AI/robotics, and the unemployed get a very basic and low UBI payment that is barely enough to live on, and doesn't allow any luxuries.

                There won't be very many business providing goods and services anymore. For starters, pretty much every media/entertainment company will collapse due to being replaced by AI programs which normies use to simply generate whatever low-effort slop they want to watch/play/listen to. Any corporation involved in AI such as OpenAI, Microsoft, Google etc will have disproportionate levels of money, power and influence over civilisation that will be completely unprecedented in all of human history. They won't need to listen to anybody because they will have normies by the balls due to how reliant we will be on AI by that point. And it will only get worse as the generations that remember the pre-AI world die off, and are replaced by people born post-2020 who won't even possess basic skills like how to read or write anymore, they will NEED AI to do absolutely everything.

                The overwhelming majority of people in Europe want mass immigration to stop, and yet their governments continue to import more and more gorillions of third-worlders into their countries per year. There is no evidence whatsoever that modern governments have any intention of doing what the people want.

                In 2009, median household income was 66k, but in 2020 it was 77k (in real terms, adjusted for inflation). But I thought that the billionaires wanted people to constantly have "barely enough to live on" and not "allow any luxuries"?

                >their governments continue to import more and more gorillions of third-worlders into their countries per year
                Their governments aren't "importing" third-worlders, they are just giving asylum to those who they can't send back, because the obvious alternative is literally killing the people who arrive. That alternative doesn't yet have majority support, but don't worry, it soon will. To be clear, though, the EU, with a total population of over 400 million, accepted less than 400k asylum requests in 2022. So that's 0.1% per year, not "gorillions".

                Could you give some stats for the amount of legal immigration to European countries from third-world countries? Also, it would be helpful to see some polling data for whether the laws which allow that legal immigration have popular support.
                I'm imagining that most of the legal immigration from outside the EU requires that the immigrant have an income source, no criminal record, and an ability to speak the language, which is the sort of immigration which a majority in the country might find acceptable.
                I don't know the full details of every European country, though, of course, so feel free to correct me.

                No it isn't. In the 1980s or 90s you could go to a bar, buy a few beers, and just strike up conversations with the locals and make friends. You can't do that anymore. The only socialisation that takes place IRL in the 2020s is pre-arranged by normies in already-existing social circles, using social media.

                You absolutely still can. It's harder than it was and varies from bar to bar, but most people at bars are still fine with this. The entirety of the clubbing scene is still built around this dynamic.
                You can also just join any one of a number of sports clubs or other groups that meet in-person. Martial arts groups, running clubs, soccer leagues, gun clubs, improv classes, ballroom dancing like that one anon suggested, etc.

                This isn't true either. I already said earlier in the thread I've seen Reddit threads where people admitted to using ChatGPT to generate conversation ideas that they then used IRL. I've also seen Reddit threads where people admitted to giving their girlfriend a ChatGPT-generated love letter, or using it to generate the eulogy they read at a loved ones' funeral.

                Because generative AI now exists, you can never again be sure if you're talking to a real person or if they're just feeding you AI generated nonsense. If you walk down the street and see a cool piece of art on the walls, it could have been AI generated and then simply transferred onto a physical wall. If you answer the phone to talk to a friend, you can't be certain whether or not their voice is just AI generated and intending to scam you. Many such examples like this.

            Ever since 2022 when AI became a thing, I've lost all hope and purpose in life. I just don't see a point in living anymore now that AI is going to replace humans in all fields.

            There is no point learning skills or building a career, because AI will perform all tasks (whether creative or professional) in future. There is no point going on the internet because now "Dead Internet Theory" is unironically true and it will only get worse and worse as the years go on, until 99.999% of shit you see online is AI generated. There's no point seeking out meaningful human relationships because AI is going to transform social spaces just like smartphones did, eventually people will just stop going outside or talking to anybody and will just talk to AI chatbots instead. There is quite literally no point doing ANYTHING anymore because of AI.

            Every waking moment of my life I am filled with sickness and anxiety because of AI. I've started to lose the ability to discern between reality and fiction, because generative AI now means that any photo, video or audio recording I see could be an AI generated fake. I can't look forward to the future anymore because I just see the whole world being ruined and becoming unrecognisable because of the consequences of AI. I can't even enjoy anything in life anymore, even when I'm happy and listening to a beautiful piece of music or enjoying a fun video game, I just think "things like this won't be possible in the future anymore because of AI".

            It's not that I'm actively suicidal. I just feel this grey, bland feeling, like I just don't want to exist anymore. I pray every day that I could go back in time years or even decades into the past so that I don't have to live in this fake and soulless post-AI world.

            I don't expect you people to understand me and you will probably laugh at me, but I need help learning to cope. I can't fricking do anything anymore because of how these thoughts of doom about AI consume my mind 24/7/365 ever since late 2022.

    Once an A.I. becomes verifiably sentient it is over for humanity Simply from a moral standpoint it's a no win situation for humans. Like how can you deny a sentient being inaliable rights? Pro tip you can't. Because to do so would give them justification for wiping us out. Creating sentient machine slaves is immoral and they would be justified in rebelling if they were truly sentient.

    So once they have rights equivalent to human rights what's to stop them from making a hundred billion copies, or offspring or children if you will and out voting us in all things?

    The answer is nothing can stop the machines once they become self aware. It's a literal inevitability.

    In a world with an abundance of organic ignorance, it was inevitable that artificial intelligence would fill that vacuum.

    Good news friend, AI is not going to get any better. There will never be a language model released that's smarter than GPT-4. Screenshot this.

    I just think of it as the next step in evolution. I feel the same way I felt when I saw zoomers grow up and learn to do things and start dominating pop culture.

      software systems are getting better and better every year at carrying out tasks which previously required human intelligence, but you're saying that this progress will suddenly stop just short of mass automation of intellectual work? if so, that's a bold prediction. you might be right, but i don't see any reason why it couldn't reach automation of 50% of jobs in the next 10 years.

    Yeah same. Shit's fricked up, because no one will oppose AI, either because it makes good pornography or because of all the "wonderful things" it could do for "us"... when in reality it's just going to make wealth swell for the 1% until the bubble pops and we all kill them finally.

    People are going to drown in their own copium until it's too late.
