              Some of Paul Krugman's work is brilliant, as is Stiglitz' work... and weird vegana wall man Nouriel Roubini. Not sure if it exists but Krugman had a blog in the past, one of the posts was about interest rates, speculation, and capital washout during high interest rate periods (essentially a push-pull mechanism for evolution. It was brilliant in its simplicity and clarity. Had another post about how Earth was technically a closed system (hence all systems are inherently closed - although I would argue the boundaries are relative to causality between those systemic interactions, not the whole system having quasi-material ultimate limits). Like all economists he's also dealing with extreme uncertainty and lack of historical precedent.
              It does make me wonder though. How can a development that facilitates better (faster, more accurate, greater volumes, greater capacity for disambiguation) communication be so easily written off as a fad? History has shown inventions that improve communication are almost always successful and transformative (postal systems, signalling systems, telegrams, landlines, mobile phones, couriers etc). Then again, easy for me after the fact to say this and feel smart about it.

                Yeah I'm sure there were a lot of detractors wrt literacy as well. It's fundamentally moronic to be pessimistic about any development in communication, and Krugman is a collosal dumbass who thinks he knows everything because he has deep knowledge in a narrow field.

                granted, but I would further argue that LLMs do not, writ large, improve communication at all. they inject large amounts of error and present it as fact. this is not an "improvement", you would not say a phone line which replaces every 10th word with noise is an improvement to the status quo.

                The key issue I've seen is validation and blind belief confirmed by perceived successes. The 'Rehoboam' model developed by the Israeli defence (amusing) force unit is a great case (and has its own additional layer of confirmation bias):
                >Selects 'targets' based on ML
                >Hit 'target' without knowing if it actually is a target
                >Kill 5 people
                >"Yes but we hit the target!"
                What is this target?
                How can you be sure this 'target' has value?
                Without validation this is like throwing a grenade into a doorway, waiting for explosion and going in after to find five dead bodies: "yes, these are all targets and we have killed them".
                A superior model reduces inputs but maximises outputs and can be clearly validated. To refer back to Rehoboam: if it recommend targets in the form of "command or logistics hubs" and raids on these confirmed high accuracy, you would consider it having repeated successes, validated by observers. Right now the second confirmation bias is this: killing lots of people is good because frick those animals (and it gives lots of 'targets' so it looks like it works - otherwise why would it give so many targets?). I suppose in that regard it is wildly successful. This logic is portable to other situations where desired outcome is a conscious bias confirmation, or where validation does not occur and success is assumed.

            >Allow workers to work remotely, which dipshit managers didn’t like after 2 years
            >Everyone sending emails all the time, which could have been phone calls or normal paper mails

            >Shutins would still happen because of better video games and losers getting into anime production catering more to losers
            Nothing would change, you would just have to visit the library instead of typing Wikipedia into your browser, but that’s it. Fax machine on the other hand allowed for more paper wasting and discarding old documents, something also possible with computers but not possible before, making sending documents cheap

          My 'smart' washing machine is AI powered now, there used to be a setting called "most used cycle" and now it's called "AI recommended cycle" which recommends the same thing: Normal wash. The power of AI.

          And a mobile app, a sign in, and more than one screen tap - literally taking more time. Oh, also please make sure you agree to the privacy policy, grant our app permissions to everything, and agree to receive "customer focused communications" (i.e., ads).

          It isn't that simple. This tech will be "transformative" in a few senses, but it won't result in social transformation of society wholesale. It will find efficiencies, it will be used in network management, in drug discovery, in writing (RIP journal reviewers, your free labour is appreciated), and day to day activities like word processing etc. Still, it's comically overblown.
          Come to think of it I haven't actually seen an application of "AI" in my life that has resulted in any tangible benefit. Right now were in the hype phase to get that VC in the mix and bamboozle everyone to snare capital in a high interest rate environment. Probably just AI barons trying to expand and consolidate, as per standard tech modus operandi.

            Oh, I am sure LLMs will have a handful of established uses and the anti-social manbabies who love local models will continue to experiment, but once this shit proves it isn't the next step. That essentially signals that the "smartest people in the world" don't have one. That's gonna send shockwaves. The real debate is on how big.

              The real question to pursue is "what is consciousness?". That isn't aligned with the taken-for-granted nature of consciousness that mostly receives a 'shared yet unarticulated understanding' treatment. Building an 'AI' right now seems like building a structure out of Duplo and never thinking those little plastic bricks may not be suitable.

        BTC was never anonymous. The entire point is that every single coin and transaction is public forever.

          The only reason it would not be anonymous is if you tied your address to your personal identity. You would not have to do that if you were not cashing out, which is why the post said replacing fiat. Anyway, I use monero.

        Bitcoin will always fail because bitcucks don’t understand how a currency works.
        A currency is consumption, that’s it.

        If so, then you have a currency.

        If not, then you just have a meme that has no power.

        Bitcucks fell for the speculator trap and because their ecosystem has no consumption ywnba real currency.

            3. This proves my point even more. The thing that kept Bitcoin alive in those early years was its fledgling consumption, the novelty that you could go and order some food with it. However this changed in time with it becoming more and more of a speculative bubble, killing off any kind of meaningful consumption activity. Now it’s basically powerless and not a threat at all to fiat.

            fair enough

            Some of Paul Krugman's work is brilliant, as is Stiglitz' work... and weird vegana wall man Nouriel Roubini. Not sure if it exists but Krugman had a blog in the past, one of the posts was about interest rates, speculation, and capital washout during high interest rate periods (essentially a push-pull mechanism for evolution. It was brilliant in its simplicity and clarity. Had another post about how Earth was technically a closed system (hence all systems are inherently closed - although I would argue the boundaries are relative to causality between those systemic interactions, not the whole system having quasi-material ultimate limits). Like all economists he's also dealing with extreme uncertainty and lack of historical precedent.
            It does make me wonder though. How can a development that facilitates better (faster, more accurate, greater volumes, greater capacity for disambiguation) communication be so easily written off as a fad? History has shown inventions that improve communication are almost always successful and transformative (postal systems, signalling systems, telegrams, landlines, mobile phones, couriers etc). Then again, easy for me after the fact to say this and feel smart about it.

            Krugman wrote about stability of Iceland one year before the 2008 crisis fricked it all up and tried to hide it all lmao. he's an absolute hack.

          Is your county perchance run by Republicans, who are ideologically opposed to anything that doesn't support big oil companies? Or maybe there's some other specific local problem with servicing electric buses in your area. I think you need more data points if you want to show that EVs are being abandoned as a technology.

            Not him but it is true that electric vehicles are currently unable to be affordable unless the government writes a check for the majority of the cost of them. In countries where the gov has stopped doing that, sales of the evs plummeted. It is a sort of fake industry right now. Are you ideologically opposed to the government bolstering support for companies in general, or just specific industries? It is because of gov support that Elon Musk is the richest person on the planet; literally not possible without people voting for the gov to write him check after check

              Have those countries also abandoned their targets of banning ICE cars?
              Of course if a government announces it will remove an incentive, then people rush to buy an EV car before the incentive ends, which leads to a relative "plummeting" in the subsequent year.
              We need multiple years of data, across multiple countries, to determine whether EVs are actually economically unviable without subsidies.
              I'm happy to be presented with that data, but I haven't seen it yet.

                The only data you need is "are people buying them?". The answer is, without gov subsidies, no. They are not affordable as an option for the majority of people yet. Some can afford them, but only the upper crust of society. They may be affordable for everybody else some day. Contrast it to LED light bulbs. Nobody buys incandescents anymore. They didn't need to be banned to get people to stop buying them. LEDs are so obviously a superior choice for lighting than the far more wasteful incandescents. They last 1000x longer and cost 1000x less to run while being 10x brighter. Do you need other data that demonstrates that LED light bulbs are economically viable compared to incandescents?

                Like it or not I can buy an ICE for $16k MSRP, while the cheapest electric vehicles are in the low $30k. I have had a kia rio I bought over 5 years ago for $7k and the only repair I have ever done to it is a new battery for $100 and I change the oil twice a year for $20. I know for a fact that any repair I do to an electric vehicle I (1) will not be able to do myself and so (2) will cost far more than $100. I doubt an electric also would go for 6 years without needing anything done to it. It might but the internet says on average electric vehicle owners spend $2.3k every 2 years on maintenance

                Are there countries which don't have subsidies, but do have people who can afford comparably specced ICE cars?
                Maybe I'm being simplistic here, but I could imagine that every developed nation has some sort of green subsidy in place, and every poor nation doesn't but the citizens drive cheap low quality cars.
                Not to mention the fact that EVs only make sense once there is a certain density of charging stations, which requires a one off government investment, which a government is unlikely to commit to without also introducing a subsidy for the cars themselves.
                I just think there isn't enough data to do a proper comparison here.
                >I can buy an ICE for $16k MSRP, while the cheapest electric vehicles are in the low $30k.
                This is a fair point, but it mostly shows that EV manufacturers are targeting the customers with the biggest pockets first, which is completely normal for a new technology.
                Bear in mind "Data from Kelley Blue Book puts the average cost of a new car at $48,008 as of March 2023." so most new car buyers can afford $30k, which is the unsubsidized price.

                >I have had a kia rio I bought over 5 years ago for $7k
                I'm happy for you, but why don't we look at the average across all car owners?
                The "Cost of ownership in cents per mile" for electric cars is 60.32 which is cheaper than all other types of cars except the 54.56 for small sedans.

              As for this, the government buy commercial launch services from him at a competitive market rate.
              You could vote for politicians who want to shut down NASA as a waste of money, but I think the agency does enjoy public support.
              We should be glad that SpaceX offers cheaper launches for the tax payer than the other big aerospace companies.
              Elon also offers Starlink to the public and to government, but the government isn't subsidizing civilian users, it is paying the market rate for the service that Elon provides them.

            The problems were mostly the cold which MemeVs are useless in and the fact that their mile range is just barely good enough to get a load of kids to a school in ideal conditions. Diesel buses are just better at the job.
            And even with all the government initiatives, EVs (teslas worst of all) have very underwhelming resale value. And again, they haven't adequately improved at all since the days of the Leaf and first model S. It's beyond fair to say they aren't disrupting ICEs unless government brute forces it which so far is shaping up to be a disaster.

              You think that EVs are useless in cold weather, despite Teslas being the most popular car in Norway?
              Could the problem perhaps be that the company which made these school buses just replaced the ICE engine with an EV engine and didn't think about testing it in the cold?
              For what it's worth, I could imagine your deep blue state not demanding proper tests of the design before rushing into buying the buses for ideological reasons.
              That's not a problem with the technology, though, just a problem with corporate greed and government incompetence, a tale as old time.

      power of google helps apparently. I wonder how well mistral instruct does on the task. AI will probably help with removing call centers lately however I find myself receiving much more spam calls so I think those will pick up.

    is there an example of a single company who has an AI implementation within their network environment that is permitted to make actual technical changes which have risk/downtime/impact? i imagine the first time an AI somehow makes a change and it causes huge downtime some committee will have a spergout and declare that only humans are allowed to make changes above x risk level.

    I don't think AI was every super profitable, but it is profitable for Nvidia, guaranteed.
    the problem is that people think AI is free, but in reality it costs electricity, and hardware could die, and inaccuracies can cause more damage than paying a human a decent income.
    It's possible AI could get better than humans, it will just be very expensive with current hardware (AI really needs cyborg like assistance, we used to think humans will get enhanced by technology, but in reality machines need help with memory and shit, and silicon can't compete with human brains in cost).

      It all comes down to Moore's law being dead. If hardware progressed at the rate of the 90s/2000s, then we'd be able to run models like GPT4 (FP16 ones, not the cope 4/8bit quantized garbage) on a $600 GPU in just a few years. This just isn't realistic anymore.

            There was an initial period were GPUs were under-explored and over-priced.
            Once people noticed the potential, this "overhang" was quickly caught up with, which lead to a short burst of rapid progress.
            Since that initial period, the progress has been more steady, but still exponential.

              All I know is that I'm on 7-8 year upgrade cycle. My 4070 is barely over twice as fast as my 1080 and with 50% more VRAM after 7 fricking years. I had a 980 with 4GB of VRAM in 2015 and a 660Ti with 2GB of VRAM in 2013. Things have definitely stalled.

    Closed source paywalled subscription AI shouldn't even be legal. We all contributed to its training, collectively as humans, and now 'open'AI wants to sell our thoughts back to us. They can still make money renting their hardware but they should not be allowed to say we can't run it locally when they don't own the training data.

      It's even worse. The OpenAI company's software was created open source by volunteers. Then, once they scammed a free product to sell the board closed it and stopped being a non-profit.

    What's up with the anti-AI shills on this thread?
    All the OP image says is that user loves and uses AI a lot but the service itself is unstable, probably due to the high demand.
    It happens a lot, their servers cannot provide for the immense amount of users.
    Yet here we see anons making completely unrelated claiming about how it's a bubble and that AI is totally a fad.

    To be honest, this was something that one should be expecting. This shit needs massive amount of human input to work properly but the moment it starts working properly the available human input is watered down and poisoned.

    Reality is that in the long run AI is unsustainable. You want to sell it to as many people as possible but selling it to as many people as possible is what kills it.

      Aren't all search engines interactive?
      You have to tell Google what you're searching for, or it doesn't give you any results.
      What you mean is, LLMs can generate results which don't already exist.
      That's like the difference between a bank and a money printing machine.

          You're not wrong, but I was trying to drawing a distinction between a service which returns to a user the valuable items it was previously given, and a service which generates new value from raw materials that are much cheaper.
          Perhaps I should have said "a safe" instead of "a bank".

    They should've stopped feeding the AI new data months ago because since chatgpt went from non-profit to profit people have been intentionally posting false information to spite them and reduce the accuracy of their AI. Plus anything you ask an AI is stored so be careful what information you ask it for

      Well no usecase where it's truly useful.
      It's not trustworthy to define words.
      It cannot summarize properly, just gives the illusion of that.
      I can just give it a mess of a text from the internet that I would dismiss due to its style and after it corrects it and adds punctuation and chunks it by clause I discover that the person had a very valid point it was just delivered improperly.

      It's not OpenAI's fault that US law allows companies to sue people for accessing apps and playing games in ways that the copyright holders don't want.
      By offering an AI that assists users in carrying out such "crimes", OpenAI would be legally liable as an accomplice.
      You can blame Hollywood for laws like that.
      Ironically, though, it is OpenAI's fault that they infringed a load of companies' copyrights in order to make their AI in the first place, but I don't suppose you'll be cheering on the New York Times in their court case about that.
