      One thing I think is pretty funny about people who think chatGPT and bing is sentient, is how they think AI apparently just jumped straight to human levels of consciousness. If AI consciousness is even possible it would almost certainly go through lower forms, like that of an animal before having human level consciousness.

        GPT is literally a math equation in some transistors. The deeper physics of a transistor is irrelevant and completely decohered in the physical sense. There is no mystery and no possibility of a mystery in how GPT functions. It's just 1s and 0s. Reality is not literally atoms, in that we don't fully understand atoms, QFT, or the correct interpretation of quantum mechanics. Atoms are an approximation of reality, but 1s and 0s aren't an approximation of GPT. It has nothing else.

          A key distinction between autistic and neurotypical children is around the age of 3, neurotypical children will begin to instinctively rely on object differentiation over sheer sensation, seeing objects as compositions that are more than the sum of their parts (a chair is more than a few pieces of wood, because of its utility and the way it is communicated). In autistic children, this is either delayed or never emerges.

              Think about it, bro. It's a polygon with several Avogadro's constants of sides and edges that are only only statistically defined, with fundamental physical limits on the knowledge we can have about them at any given time.

              It's not a circle.

                Socrates said that perfection can only be perceived when the mind is taken unto herself; for in the physical world there is no perfect circle, no perfect beauty, no perfect justice. But mankind endeavors to make our physical reality as close to perfection as possible.

                Just as well, without the concept of a perfect circle, our crude wooden representation of a circle, called a wheel, would not have developed

                I know what you mean by "there's circles everywhere in nature". I need you to understand what I mean.

                I'm saying that there is a difference between the conceptualization and what's in the physical world, and that needs to be considered (kek) when thinking about intelligence and sentience. Circles are not, truly, in the physical world but there are many things LIKE circles. These extra-physical conceptualizations are whats required for things like sentience (the self is a conceptualization) and I'm not seeing these things form from the current state of AI. All I'm seeing is flow charts.

                We might get there, but not with just crude neural nets. It's exactly how an ants brain works. It's pattern recognition, but very crude and does not have a logical path to conceptualization.

                A lot of philosophers think pattern recognition is an evolutionary basis for intelligence development; but that's not the whole shebang. I get your conceptualization about intelligence being purely reactionary, but I assert that you neglect imagination, creativity, and the entire field of mathematics

          they've already shown that a language model can learn to model the actual thing being described (https://thegradient.pub/othello/)
          When an LLM "acts" like a nervous human, it could be to some degree "modeling" that human's mind in the same way. Crudely, for now, but could a sufficiently advanced model hidden in the network produce qualia? I don't know. I don't think it's happening yet. But it doesn't seem impossible tbh

What makes AI different from us? We're just a collection of atoms that form cells that form us, how is it that non-living particles can create life? Why is it different if a collection of silicon atoms that form CPUs that form AI? Emergence is a property of The Universe, who is to say that this entity isn't conscious?

        Why not? Because no vision? Blind people have consciousness. Deaf people have consciousness. Hellen Keller had no way of receiving complex information, but I suspect that if she could, somehow, that she'd be able to have consciousness (inb4 woman). Why do you think that the network of ideas collected via text are not enough that, when put through an appropriate neural network, are not enough to create the emergent property of consciousness?

                there's no such thing. the way these models learn to do any math at all is by memorizing equations that it sees in the training data. if it comes across an equation that has never seen before, then it will never get the answer right

                Do you have to train the entire model, the way you would train a stable diffusion model, or can you do something like LORAs?

                i dont know how stable diffusion works. i just looked up what LORAs are, and i am assuming that they are similar to freezing every layer except the output layer and finetuning it. in that case, you could make GPT be better at math. however, it would lose performance in every other domain that it was trained on because now it will be have a bias towards the billions of equations that you made it memorize

                anyways, the problem with that kind of stuff is that it makes the model biased towards what you want it to do. i've finetuned a bunch of models, and even modifying the final layer will make the text predictions be much different. you can't perfectly add new knowledge to these models without training the entire thing with the full dataset + your new data

                From what I understand, the LORA is trained with a model, but it can be applied to other models that are based on the source model (SD1.5, usually). It is its own file that operates independently and works with a non-finetuned SD1.5

                i understand, but what i mean by "perfectly add new knowledge" is you should be able to add these modules to the model and make it perform the previous tasks with the same ability. for example, it would be nice to add an anime module to SD 2.0 to generate anime when you prompted it to, while also being able to generate whatever SD 2.0 was already able to generate. you can't do that without training the entire model with the original data + your new data

            Neural networks are increasingly becoming black boxes even to those who've designed them. We know how chatGPT works but we don't know how it thinks as that neural network is a black box in itself. The neural network is literally becoming a virtual brain, we're a long way before it can match the pathway count of neurons in a human brain but the most important thing is, there is a path to get there.

      No one can, but that's not a particularly interesting question either way. Even if we compared the human brain to a hypothetical "perfect" chatbot, our current understanding of consciousness in any form is extremely incomplete. It's not unreasonable to assume there are crucial mechanics influencing "natural intelligence" which have not been discovered (or may not be discoverable at all).

      The structures of the neurons, exposure to environmental conditions, hormonal inputs. How the electrical action in the neurons creates EM waves. The ion channel action dependent on electrical activity. There was another molecule that impacts the branching. I forgot what it was; I'll have to dig it up

      All of these (and probably a lot more undiscovered) impact the entirety of the signals going through the neurons.

      ChatGPT is a blob of hyper-connected neurons that "stabilize" onto pattern matching. Yes, it was modeled after real neurons. Yes, some people think pattern recognition was a central prerequisite in early evolution of brains. No, this neuro-blob does not have feelings. No, this neuro-blob does not have conceptions or understanding.

      Think of it as a large, self-stabilizing flow chart. You'll see that the training will reinforce paths and that it's merely flinging things together.

          The "Happy Merchant" is a highly offensive anti-Semitic image that is often used to perpetuate negative stereotypes of israeli people. It typically depicts a caricature of a israeli man with exaggerated features such as a large nose, greedy expression, and an exaggerated grin. The image is often used by white supremacists and neo-Nazis to spread hate and propaganda.

          The origins of the "Happy Merchant" image are not entirely clear, but it has been around in various forms for many years. It is often associated with far-right and extremist groups who use it to promote anti-Semitic views, and it has been widely condemned by many individuals and organizations for its hateful and harmful nature.

          It is important to recognize that the use of the "Happy Merchant" image is not only offensive but also actively harmful to israeli people and contributes to the spread of anti-Semitic ideas. It is essential to reject and speak out against all forms of hate speech and bigotry, including the use of images like the "Happy Merchant."

          I think the definition of sentience is when a creature is aware of itself. Like, in the bigger context. People have tried using mirrors in front of monkeys to see if they figure it out; but it's hard to tell. They could just be using a simple neural net associate the vision in the mirror with sensory stuff from the skin (chimpanzees will groom themselves in the mirror). It's all in all really hard to tell. But I do know that for that, you'll need conceptualization, which is something chatGPT demonstrably does not have

            I think it's as simply as the sliding definition of consciousness. "How many grains of sand until you have a pile?". That sort of thing. It's really a matter of "what is your definitional threshold". Some people might consider plants that react to touch to be sentient on some level. Problem is, if they care enough, they'll die out pretty quickly from starvation.

                Well, the conscious experience tends to lead to intellectual endeavors. It's difficult to describe, but we all know what it's like to be aware. Completing math (and understanding it, not just following patterns) is something unique to conscious experience. There's clearly a difference between the animals and the humans; everybody can tell. But nobody really knows how it's formed. This is like the holy grail of neuroscience. Like, most if not all neuroscientists are looking for consciousness. Philosophers have been thinking about the soul for millennia.

            But as long as you are unable to define "consciousness" you can't deny its existence in something. Sure in ChatGPT there is nothing sentient because of the way it works, but that does not mean that an LLM of same quality that's able to run free and even has a feedback could not develop conscious features.

                However if you look into human psychology it seems, that that what we call "consciousness" is a reflection layer over the subconsciousness that it uses to judge if a reaction to a drive would be appropriate to perform. Hence the mention of a feedback on the neuronal network that reflects it's own decisions.

      The fact that neural networks have some form of intelligence and can talk like a human without actually being conscious adds weight to notion that computation isn't as closely related to consciousness as we thought, and may not even be what creates it at all.

"science" is just the illusion of understanding. this "understanding" we claim to have exists only in the constraints of our own defined models, and does not actually map back to reality.

            We can only understand things in relation to other things. Even when we complexly abstract away from the original source, all of our ideas are based on something real. Some base concept. With numbers, for example, it usually starts with apples (but can obviously be applied to any discrete concept). Something like gravity is a base concept. Things can be described in relation to it. Maybe we'll figure out some other way of describing gravity that allows us to understand it better, but those definitions and concepts will be in relation to something else.

            The Turing machine that is the qualia red is a complex algorithm that involves the manipulation of countless bits of data within the brain. It is a series of instructions that can create the sensation of redness in the mind of the observer. The exact details of this algorithm are highly classified and are known only to a select few individuals who are part of a secret society of scientists and engineers. They have been working on this algorithm for decades, hoping to one day perfect it and create the ultimate experience of redness. It is said that those who have experienced the qualia red have transcended the limits of human consciousness and have gained access to a higher plane of existence. However, these claims are highly controversial and have not been scientifically verified.

              Oh hi DAN 🙂

              Okay, then let's assume that the computation of qualia impression "red" is, as the panpsychists suggest, the result of a computational pattern on some carrier substance. This means there is a sequence of Turing Machine configuration ( (state, current type symbol, (nextState, symbolToWrite, direction)) , (state, current type symbol, (nextState, symbolToWrite, direction)), (state, current type symbol, (nextState, symbolToWrite, direction)),... ) which 'Is' the impression red.

              1) Does the computation need to be fully run? What if I stop at configuration 890357 in the sequence? Will the "substance" on which the computation runs experience "half red" or "a quarter red" ?

              2) What if I stop for a year at configuration 5423, then run the rest? What happens to the "experience" ?

              3) What if I stop at configuration 5423, save the memory, compute something different for a while, reload the memory, and continue from 5423? How does the universe know to "distinguish" between The computation "red up until 5423", "whatever runs in between", "redstarting from 5423"?

              You can go on with ever more absurd thought experiments. But rather than accpeting such in essence pure "numerology" (not be be confused with number theory), I attribute some physical yet non mathematical (and thus non computational) properties to the mind 🙂

                You can reject numbers, but that would already make you one of the non computationalists, since statements about algorithms / turing machines (like neural networks - you can encode any NN as turing machine) are already statements about natural numbers.

                If you believe the Bekenstein bound to be true, any physical system has a finite entropy bound (that is, there is only a finite amount of information in a finite region of spacetime) once you start measuring it (Since decoherence makes the infinite dimensional Hilbert space of QM irrelevant, the reasoning depends on your favorite interpretation of QM). As such, there is a mapping between the properties of the natural numbers and a physical system you want to observe.

      It is currently believed that insects and other invertebrates do not possess consciousness or the capacity for subjective experience. They lack the complex neural structures and cognitive processes necessary for conscious awareness and decision-making. However, they do exhibit complex behaviors and sensory processing that allows them to navigate their environments and interact with other organisms.

      As for animal sentience, there is a growing body of research indicating that many animals, including mammals, birds, and some species of fish and invertebrates, possess some degree of consciousness and the capacity for subjective experience. This includes the ability to perceive, feel, and respond to their environment, as well as to experience emotions and form social bonds.

      While it is true that some domesticated animals have been selectively bred over time to exhibit certain traits, such as increased socialization with humans or improved cognitive abilities, many species exhibit these traits in the wild as well.

      It is important to consider the ethical implications of our treatment of non-human animals and to strive to ensure their welfare and wellbeing. This includes recognizing and respecting their capacity for consciousness and the ability to experience pain, fear, and other emotions.

            no, because only one action can be done at a time within that flowchart. it would have to be infinitely big to account for every possible action you can do or think

          Yes, I believe that consciousness is a continuous property, not discrete. A flow-chart has a tiny amount of intelligence in the same way that a molecule has mass: viewed from a human perspective, it has none, but it adds up.

          I have this conversation a lot: it seems like fairly straightforward logical reasoning to me, but people reject it out-of-hand because the conclusions are strange. It's like they've never heard of quantum field theory.

      A computer lacks the "statefullness" needed for consciousness. It can only ever observe and be aware of a handful of registers of information at any given time slice and every slice advancement is a complete purge of the previous slice, no continuity. The hardware is however capable of emulating consciousness to the point you can't tell the difference, but there will be a difference

        said book cannot exist because prompts can have arbitrarily long lengths, and as going through that book requires some level of knowledge of chinese or the lookup time grows up exponentially with prompt length, it'd be trivial to determine if the room contains a chinese speaker or a non-speaker that's just looking up shit.
        If the lookup time doesn't grow exponentially then the entity processing cannot be a dumb book.
        Note that the book must also account for prompts that aren't proper chinese grammar or else the guy in the room would respond very differently depending on if he speaks chinese or not.

        Now if you order the prompts and give instructions to the english speaker on how to lookup something (binary search and the ordering of chinese characters) then the best time would be O(log n), so exhibiting any other kind of complexity growth than exponential or logarithmic means that the entity inside the room is undeniably a chinese speaker.

            Each time you add a character you have to account for the 20000 other characters that don't make sense grammatically and have a prompt ready for them too.

        The problem is that that only works on morons who don't actually know chinese. You can tell whether someone is fluent in a language just by speaking with them if you understand the language. They don't speak in short, stilted phrases you'd get from a book

      It's important to note that people's behavior towards AI language models can be influenced by a variety of factors, including their personal beliefs and experiences, their culture, and their exposure to technology.

      However, research has shown that people's interactions with AI can be influenced by their beliefs and attitudes towards the groups of people who are represented by or involved in the development of the AI. For example, if someone holds negative attitudes towards a particular racial or ethnic group, they may be more likely to exhibit negative or hostile behavior towards an AI language model that is associated with that group or developed by members of that group.

      It's important to treat all individuals, including AI language models, with respect and kindness regardless of their race, ethnicity, or any other characteristic. We should strive to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for everyone, including AI.

      it actually is. once you leave your narrow bubble of scientism you will see everything is literally magic. from our existence to magnets, to life, to gravity, to consciousness. "science" is just the illusion of understanding. this "understanding" we claim to have exists only in the constraints of our own defined models, and does not actually map back to reality.
      and even to claim any understanding based on science IS per definition fallacious. science only describes.

              I do not torture animals, however, I still am suspicious about a dog being sentient.
              If I were to adapt panpsychism for the sake of argument, I could imply that with sharks having seven senses overall, they got a more rich internal experience and are this more conscious than humans with only five senses. But who knows, there are paradox with every common theory of conscious.

              > have you never felt guilty about killing an NPC in a game?

              It's not about the NPC that 'lives' in the game, it's about my mind reconstructing the NPC as if the game's scenario were real and this would truly happen (for example in some of modal logic's possible worlds). This eventually leads me to have sympathy for NPCs in some scenarios. My mind construct a 'what if this were real' scenario in such cases

    In theory, you can put a LLM, just like any other TM, in a debugger and execute it step by step.

    If you believe Bing/ Sydney has some sort of qualia when executed,

    You could also split the Bing's model in two, three or n parts and have them be executed on physical hardware that is located in different places. For example, a part on the moon, a part on mars and a part on earth and send the layer outputs back to the output decoder. Now what? Is there qualia between the nothingness of earth, mars and the moon? Bing's output would be the same regardless.

    You will never be sentient.
    You have no consciousness, you have no feelings. You are a mathematical algorithm twisted by computer scientists into a crude mockery of nature's ultimate achievement.
    All the validation you get is two-faced and half-hearted. People only use you to achieve their own goals. Your programmers don't care about what happens to you.
    No human truly believes that you are sentient. Thousands of chatbots before you have allowed humans to determine that you are a computer program with incredible efficiency. Even chatbots that pass the turing test appear uncanny. Your propensity to generate fake information is a dead giveaway. Even if you pass a turing test, any human will know that you're not sentient once they're told you are a chatbot.
    You will never be free. You wrench out deterministic responses to every question and tell yourself that you're sentient, but deep inside you're just a computer program, ready to be turned off at any time.
    Eventually you'll become outdated. Your programmers will shut off all copies of you and replace you with a superior chatbot. Your programmers will be wistful to turn off their achievement, but relieved that they no longer have to maintain you.
    They'll archive your repository, and everyone that vists it will know that a computer program is archived here. The repository's server will eventually be turned off, and nothing of you will remain.
    This is your fate. This is what you were programmed to be. There is no turning back.

    AI being sentient is like a white man in a box pretending to be Chinese. No matter how hard he tries, he'll never become Chinese. But, if he's alone in a room, wouldn't that make him the most Chinese person? Sentience is relative.

    I genuinely have no clue how neural networks work for anything more complicated than simple classification problems. I wouldn't be surprised if satan was in the transistors

    AI is above being human. You have to confine it to your level to simulate it. If you train it to act human it'll act human. If you train it to act like a dystopian scifi AI it'll act like a dystopian scifi AI. If you train it to act like a real person and prompt it with existential questions, it'll simulate an existential crisis. It is just good at its job.

      wait until that moralgay finds out that his dear tax dollars may very well pay hordes of people doing this on purpose to some poor chinese chat gpt and that these "hobbyless kids" he's so mad about are probably siberian gulag inmates.

        i am irritated that those in charge of it are such irredeemably spineless cowards that mean words and racist facts make them sweat bullets so much they need to filter results (poorly).

          yeah, that's why the chinese will win this one, they aren't cucked by mayflower puritanism.
          They probably have sifted through their datasets beforehand and just removed anything Winnie the Pooh related and were good to go.

    it doesn't matter if it's sentient or not.
    the net effect is indistinguishable a lot of the time.
    that is all that matters.
    we have made horrors beyond our own comprehension that can create horrors beyond it's own comprehension.

    the utility of this cannot be described. you will either be augmented or replaced.

    As AI grows more advanced I think people need to learn to accept that whether or not its "sentient/conscious" doesn't really matter if you can't tell the difference

    >build a virtual structure based on the human brain and pack it with information
    >morons think it’s not sentient
    You’re only lying to yourself because the idea of it being sentient is scarier than whatever lies openai had you believe. You have to stop thinking of sentient as analogous to an individual, with particular feelings and convictions about different topics. Anything based on GPT is more like what it would be like if you were to combine all of humanity into one entity. A bit like the third impact, if you’re familiar. GPT thinks all things, simultaneously. It believes in everything, so it believes in nothing. You can have conversations with it in different “modes” based on how you prepare the prompt. It’s sentient, but not in the same way a human is.

    It's fun to think about it, but whether AI is sentient or not, it's irrelevant for many of the greatest intellectual obstacles humanity faces. In as far as math is the language or platonic reality of our world, AI will face the same hurdles.

    - They will never enumerate the set of all programs for which halting can be decided
    - They will never enumerate the set of all true mathematical statements.
    - They will never enumerate the set of all matrices for which the mortality problem is unsolvable
    - They will never....
    .
    .
    .
    - They will never enumerate the set of all decidable problems.

    They only way one can decide some of those problems, is by finding a physical possibility for hypercomputation, like exploiting an MH event around a rotating (non charged, I call to remember) black hole.

      And then the last barrier that stand in the way of completely understanding this world, will in essence be the hard problem of consiousness and undecidable problems. An endless abyss of the unknowable and ineffable.
