      It's a specific term with a specific meaning to reduce uncertainty.

      Transformative artificial intelligence (TAI) is artificial intelligence that constitutes a transformative development, i.e. a development at least as significant as the agricultural or industrial revolutions.

        Umm, sweaty? Hormone blockers are a transformative technology. Helping trans children will literally transform society and is as important as the industrial revolution. Prove me wrong.

          Anons being triggered by the term AGI because they don't willfully refuse to understand the concept of generality as opposed to specificity.

          Use the word transformative to label a more specific phenomena and they start babbling about chuds

          I know being oppositional is new and exciting for you kid, but it's old hat for the rest of us.

              The industrial (and agricultural) revolutions are typically categorized by a dramatic and unexpected increase in wealth and population.
              I would normally say that it's highly unlikely trans kids would result in that, but you're just going to turn around and say that I didn't PROVE you wrong.
              I'll break the issue down further and we'll eventually work our way down to you admitting you're a solipsist. I tell you to jump off a bridge because nothing matters. Another anon comments how you make your position unassailable by not engaging with the issue. Shit's predictable. Don't you ever get tired of it?

                So AI is about to cause a dramatic and unexpected increase in wealth and population?

                absolutely. with infinite virtual resources at their disposal, the numbers on people's bank balances in the metaverse will have so many zeroes at the end that you won't believe we used to use quaint terms like "millionaire" or "billionaire". and anyone who wants to will be able to be a woman!

                The duplicator is a thought experiment that's easier to understand.
                If you're interested I could go into specific issues on why AI is extremely difficult to align with human values, but it's basically Goodhart's law.

                According to Will, there's a 50% chance transformative AI arrives between 2040 and 2050.
                It would be disingenuous to make predictions with higher degrees of certainty with the available evidence and how future technology is historically difficult to predict correctly.
                You can't have a simple yes or no, but I'm sure you've prepared some smoothbrained Aristotelian logicis I said yes and I wouldn't want to let that go to waste so go ahead.

                There's a lot of guesses, but very rarely do experts believe we have more than 80 years.

                Why would AI cause unexpected increases in wealth and population when the explicit goals of the people funding the research is to decrease the population in numbers and strip individuals from any social power?

                No one wants to cull the population because they're "inconvenient". That makes no sense. Global wealth is driven by specialization. The developer takes longer to make money if there isn't anyone making their coffee.

                Social power sure. Corruption and authoritarianism is on the rise. No one is disputing that.

                I don't care about your psychotic fantasies. I'm going by explicit stated intentions of your owners, and the empirical evidence showing a decrease in population, decrease in freedom and increase in centralized control. You are subhuman.

                I've said before that people don't change their mind according to facts. I would encourage you to explore the possibility that you have attributed phenomena to the incorrect cause. It's really difficult to see when you're wrong from the inside.

                Do you mean the way you continue to be psychotic despite your handlers constantly bombarding everyone with propaganda about the dangers of overpopulation and the benefits of centeralized control? Or the way you don't change your mind despite the empirical evidence of population decline, decreased freedom and increasing control over the population? Thanks for making it very clear that you cannot be reasoned with and will need to be dealt with by some other means.

                the central planning models created by the ~~*people funding the research*~~ find humans to be very inconvenient, because they don't necessarily do what they are told. so they want to keep their centrally planned economic models, but switch to using fake humans in them rather than real ones. that way the numbers always go up, and reality never interferes
