    I don't really care what Carmack does, his work at Meta with Occulus was pretty lukewarm. I don't care for his early work in muh bideo games, he's just a greybeard. If anything, especially in AI, I'd only care what Sam Altman does

          You have to have the bait make sense. If you're larping as a character who's interested in AI, it's not plausible that he wouldn't recognize the name of the guy whose team makes Pytorch.

            I'm not larping, I know he's a researcher but like all the other researchers, they do best in the background away from my care. Give me the new Altman to look at who's done more bringing AI to the public than these researchers and their tech demos. My mom has used chatGPT, she has never heard of Pytorch and never will.

                anon I understand, I'm not belittling pytorch. I use it myself as well. What I'm talking about is that OP is presenting Carmack as some AI messiah and I don't care for, and same goes for the researchers. I'll read their paper on arxiv but I don't really care for them either. Who is moving the big dollars in tech? Altman and everyone else pales in comparison. You can tell me that chatGPT is built off papers by deepmind next but again, I don't care for them, they're sitting on their talent writing papers instead of making headlines that I'll bother to wait 90 minutes and watch their announcement

      John was cucked out of the decision making process and forced into endless business meetings instead of being allowed to hack hardware. When he brought his complaints to Zuck, he got an alien stare and a pre-programed "muh Metaverse" speech in return.

      John only wanted to get great running, easy access VR hardware to the masses. He feels proud he got as much work done as he could before Faceburg burnt it down.

        I mean he succeeded there I have a quest 2 sitting right next to me but I've used like 4 times in the past entire year. I don't really care for this man's work, I'm excited about AI but I don't see Carmack doing anything big in this field. He's too old for it and hasn't kept up. Like you said, he got lost in burecracy at facebook, why didn't he do something like Altman in that time. What am I supposed to be looking forward to this "JOHN CARMACK AI ANNOUNCEMENT." especially when OpenAI today started to roll out image and voice to chatGPT plus. Give me something to latch onto beside just his name

      Listening to one of Richard Sutton's talks since I've never heard of him before this. He's talking about how most people are too concerned about restraining AGI to the goals of humans, and we'd be better off just letting it decide what to do for itself. He seems to align politically with John Carmack(libertarian), and I'm getting heavy materialist vibes(Consciousness is merely an illusion, and humans are basically meat robots with no soul.), which aligns with what I've heard John Carmack say in the past.

      They're both not whiny wokies who want to control society from the top down, which is probably who you want to build AGI...

          I've got a BOT comic from 13 years ago somewhere showing Carmack headlocking a security guard so he can keep answering questions.

      John Carmack and Rich Sutton partner to accelerate development of Artificial General Intelligence.

      John sniped a big shot in AI to develop AGI. They're taking a different route than the money focused LLM crowd is taking.

        Dabs, Benadryl and HMVs, days go by so fast.

        [...]
        Nothing major, John has hired Rich Sutton to work with him on AI in his own company, which is also teaming up with a Canadian university. Watch the fireside chat if you want a good nerd-podcast.

        thanks m8s. so basically a nothingburger.

          It might be important, you never know. These guys are big deals.

            I'd be more hyped for someone like Fabrice Bellard. Carmack is a nobody outside of gamedev, and even there he didn't do anything significant for well over a decade.

                arguably, QEMU is a more important project of his. but he developed many, many other cool things. check the wiki, the list goes on and on. a true versatile hacker.

                Same, I think it filters everyone. I just ask GPT-4 to write ffmpeg command lines I can use, and it's very, very good at it.
