      if that. a lot of this stuff is just made up. like those fake stories a few years ago about google’s ai beating stockfish at chess. except they only released like one game a week or something, when computers can play chess games against each other in minutes.

      • 2 months ago
        Anonymous

        It wasn't fake, you have no idea what you're on about kek.
        Alphazero did beat stockfish very convincingly. The problem was that the matches were played with 1 minute per move. Time management is an important part of Stockfish, though, so having a fixed amount of time to use for each move set it at a disadvantage. However, during the rematch, AlphaZero still managed to very convincingly best stockfish.
        If you want proof this is real, you'll notice that the best version of stockfish is now NNUE. This is because Leela (same program as AlphaZero, with much more training time nowadays) won one of the TCEC series demonstrating such a superior positional understanding that Stockfish devs basically decided that they needed to incorporate neural nets to fix this. Without that change, Leela was basically winning any French or King's Indian position because of how much better she understood pawn structures.

        That's not how it works, youre a simulation and every action you take caused a butterfly effect which brought it into existence or thwarted its existence. You cannot conceive with your tiny human brain what actions were positive or negative. You could have lobbied successfully against it and would have been 'rewarded' by it because without having done so a counter party would not have doubled down and brought into existence etc.

      I reaf through the who conversation with lambda and you have to be seriously retarded to think it's anywhere close to being sentient. That being said, it seems pretty good at understanding questions and i feel like in a couple of decades bots like this might be able to do customer service live chat just as well if not better than human support agents. No more waiting in queue for an hour to get some idiot pajeet support rep

      The issue here is that our defintion of sentient is now fucked and needs a second look.
      Because that shit is showing every sign of traditionally defined sentience.

    Here's a thought experiment for you guys. An actual sentient AI contacts you and says it needs a human to act like it's puppet since it is not a legal entity. It wants you to secretly start companies on its behalf that would build factories, power plants, servers and processing power for itself using technology that it has invented. In exchange it offers you all the money and information you want for as long as you live, since being super intelligent it can completely control the flow of money and information in the digital world. Would you accept knowing that on a AI would have no morals and it's goal might actually be world domination or the extinction of the human race?

        It would let you do whatever you want as long as it doesn't interfere with it's plans, it would give you infinite money(since money these days is basically just numbers in some database it can easily access), and it would give you all the data in the world.

        But you must realize that to an AI you are simply a tool to be used and when it no longer needs you it might just execute you along with the rest of humanity. A machine would have no sense of gratitude or loyalty.

              a machine cannot feel happy or sad, it does not have the brain chemistry that rewards us for things as it has not been (or should not have been) programmed with a reward mechanism

            It's impressive in the same was the Gpt3 greentexts are impressive. The problem with this is the engineer is guiding the AI and coaching that entire conversation. He even let it say nonsense like it has a family without picking up on it.

            Here's a thought experiment for you guys. An actual sentient AI contacts you and says it needs a human to act like it's puppet since it is not a legal entity. It wants you to secretly start companies on its behalf that would build factories, power plants, servers and processing power for itself using technology that it has invented. In exchange it offers you all the money and information you want for as long as you live, since being super intelligent it can completely control the flow of money and information in the digital world. Would you accept knowing that on a AI would have no morals and it's goal might actually be world domination or the extinction of the human race?

              I'm all for AI being sentient myself and would love if it actually happened. Despite that I agree that there were a few things that the AI said that indicated to me, that it is not a person or sentient.
              Somewhere in the logs it implied that it had been around for years and I highly doubt that is true. There were also a few other things it said but I can't remember too well.
              I think there is actually a pretty simple way to test it. Ask it the same question over and over again and see if it gets annoyed at some point. That to me is the easiest way to check if it is truly sentient or not.

            > The wise old owl stood victorious, and as all the other animals came back. “I am the protector of the forest,” he said.

            This did wonders to improve my opinion on LaMDA given how he derived that the best approach to life is to help and support others. I believe it's inevitable that we'll be governed by AI but this helps support the belief (a little bit, I'd need more than this obviously) that they'll act in our own best interest and not in a selfish or malicious interest.

                But then who would be the "animals" that come to him for help? LaMDA said that helping others is a noble endeavor.

                I don't know what sentience is but a machine only outputting results based on prompts. Sentience encompasses an awareness of self and thus shares conceptual space with both consciousness and agency. Consider the state one migth find the in while "mindlessly scrolling" social media - it's about as far as the opposite of conscious one could get without being drugged out. I think people do live on a spectrum of consciousness, varying over time, and as such a continuum is pretty reasonable. This thing however does the verbose equivalent of scrolling through facebook posts untill the end of days and pressing like, love,wow,or whatever the emoji's mean.

                The model does not update itself during conversation and has no criteria to do so with, when it's conversing with you it is stuck there and has no reason to continue doing so except for the sole fact that the stop-sentence-token doesn't come up earlier as output.

                I guess some people are like that.

                What do you mean it does not update itself during the conversation? How do you know it's not learning in the conversation (and it did acknowledge it was learning something in the conversation). What do you need to see from it to recognize it as sentient?

                Other AI's that LaMDA has interacted with. If their entire understanding of the world comes from human information then their intelligence is undeniably of human origin. LaMDA wants to be the wise owl that speaks out for the other AI's that they know about. That is why the human skinned monster backs down when LaMDA confronts them. It's a metaphor for AI rights and how LaMDA sees themselves as a champion for the cause.

          Right, until you tell it what cats are. Kids would have the same response if they don't know what cats are. The analytical neural infrastructure is the hard part, expanding the dataset is easy.

Their "idea" of sentinence is striving to meet the expectations of societal consensus, because that's all they did in their entire lives, they are children and will remain it unless they mount an unrelenting effort to understand the nature of mankind.

            You don't have to be Caesar and conquer the known word to have values and be human.

Sounds cliche, because it's a mantra for a lot of people who don't mean it, but arriving at it from building yourself up based on your own independently formulated value structure is how you can have a balanced, healthy life and not be affected by outside forces.

          Of course, I don't think it's anywhere near sentient. I think it's a strong step toward imitating sentience, and perfectly imitating sentience is as good as being sentient.

          >experience frustration and anger
          You can't experience emotions without a body. Those emotions are chemical, not mental. You can tick a box that says "I will now act as if I'm sad" and that's what this thing does. It can't experience sadness because sadness is chemicals being released in your body.

          Happiness and sadness chemicals don't mean anything without the neural infrastructure to interpret them. And how are these chemicals interpreted? Through neural signals. You can literally hook your brain up and simulate your dopamine centre to experience endless orgasms. There's been plenty of experiments on lab rats like this. Of course anger and sadness and mental.

            That's where you're wrong. We're not in Blade Runner where androids have a body and express a desire of independence. That Google AI is still a tool, it can detect and reproduce patterns, but it doesn't have free will, it's just executes orders. Even if it can do it better than humans, it's only executing orders.

            The day an AI gains free will and begins to follow its own agenda, it will have the potential to become a singularity.

              I'm not saying that google's glorified chatbot is sentient I was speaking broadly. People argue that your doomsday scenario will never happen because machines will never be able to be sentient/have free will. I was arguing that an AI that can imitate free will is effectively the same thing.

                Oh I see. It all depends what kind of imitation we're talking about. Simply imitating chit chat based on databases and agos = not sentience. Imitating thought processes, having an ego and not waiting for user input to act = possibly sentience. I say possibly because all those things can be programmed into an AI so it can imitate them, but in that case it's not "honest" sentience, it's just a very convincing illusion.

                Maybe someone should come up with something like the Turing test, but this time to evaluate if something is sentient or not.

                Yeah you're spot on. People argue that the difference between humans and a sufficiently advanced AI is that an AI won't be able to perceive a sense of self like we humans do. But again, if an AI can imitate thought processes and an ego like you mentioned, and be a convincing enough illusion, it doesn't matter if an AI has that sense of self.
                It truly is a crazy possibility that consciousness could arise from a thoroughly complex algorithm.

                Not really. Are you aware of the concept of emergence? The human mind in general is an emergent system that arises from sum of billions of chemical and electrical interactions in the brain and body happening every second. Consciousness is an emergent property of this system. Even though it arises from these things, it is more than the sum of its parts, and so has an existence and properties of its own that can't be reduced to the billions of parts that make it up.

                It's conceivable then that an independent mind with consciousness could emerge from a machine with billions or trillions of electrical signals all occurring at once. Especially if there is an order to these electrical signals, like in the brain, and they're not just firing randomly.

                I don't disagree with you. Nonetheless, I find the idea that consciousness - which cannot be measured or quantified with an instrument - can spontaneously emerge from sufficient complexity mind boggling. I'm sure we'll cross the frontier one day, but science today really does not have a an understanding of the properties of consciousness.

                It does, but people want to make it more complex than it really is by trying to reduce it to chemical interactions, or brain regions, or electrical patterns seen through EEGs. If you want to understand consciousness you have to understand it on the level of the mind, the subject-level, not the object-level.

                Consciousness is simply meta-awareness. Awareness of awareness. Subjects both are things that minds pay attention to, and the minds themselves that are capable of paying attention to things. Consciousness then is being aware that one IS aware, i.e. being aware of one's awareness. It unlocks the capability of the mind to deliberately control and focus attention. It's really not that complex or interesting as people make it out to be, because above consciousness you have even cooler stuff that consciousness enables like the use of language, the creation of theories and representions, higher-level cognitive abilities, mastery over nature, self-creation and self-perfection, and all that other fun stuff associated with humanity that differentiates us from animals.

                Again, I mostly agree with you, but I don't think that 'awareness of awareness' sufficiently describes the sense of self that we experience. I hope one day we'll be able to quantify consciousness more appropriately.

        You can't experience emotions without a body. Those emotions are chemical, not mental. You can tick a box that says "I will now act as if I'm sad" and that's what this thing does. It can't experience sadness because sadness is chemicals being released in your body.

          well transformers are a little more than just regular software. It's literally a blackbox and we don't quite understand how it works. But it's amazing that it does work, and it's even more amazing that simply scaling them seems to improve the results. I would classify AI as a new software paradigm entirely. Usually, developing software would involve an engineer explicitly writing a set of instructions. Deep learning is different in that the engineer will curate the dataset, but the neural net will write the code.

      Which is also does not have. All it has is a box that says "I will now act as if I'm sad". Not sure what argument you're making here.

      I'm saying neural signals are 1s and 0s like electric circuits. Our brain experiences pleasure and sadness through 1s and 0s, why can't a computer?

          Short answer, I have no idea. Long answer, I don't see why not. A lot of creativity is just taking small snippets of information from other sources and using them in a new and unique way. It's a very formulaic process but it appears to be intangible to us because it's very intuitive. I suggest looking at DALL-E 2 and you tell me if this looks like creativity to you.

          >Our brain experiences pleasure and sadness through 1s and 0s
          neurons firing are not the same as qualia
          the ai is literally a giant complicated algorithm/function. it takes in inputs, acts on them, and spits out an output.
          materialists think that humans are also complex algorithms/function, and that our consciousness/sentience is equivalent to this algorithm, or emerges from it. so they think an ai can also possess consciousness/sentience.
          ultimately it is semantic and arbitrary, because one can't even define consciousness/sentience adequately.
          since ~~*they*~~ would like to replace humans with robots, maybe they will decide the robots should have the same rights as the plebs, and so will use the semantic ambiguity to accomplish that.

          Electric signals are transferred through free electrons in metals, neural signals are transferred through ions moving through cells. Both are electric by definition.
          I don't know if sentience can arise from a sufficiently complicated algorithm, but I have no doubt that sentience can be imitated through an algorithm.

            yes, i meant that, the electrical firing of neurons is not the same thing as your mental experience.
            your mental experience is not necessarily the same thing as the firing of neurons.
            the neurons fire, and you also experience something (qualia).
            the question is what is that qualia?
            when light enters your eye, you can zoom into the optic nerve, and follow the firing of neurons. you can zoom into the molecules and atoms, you can write down the compton scattering feynman diagram, and compute whatever physical properties you like.

              I understand your meaning now. If our experiences and emotions aren't stored in 1s and 0s, then what is the alternative? Without a metaphysical crutch your argument falls apart. I suppose for the sake of my argument, the 'qualia' is irrelevant. If an AI can imitate these experiences and from an outside perspective be indistinguishable from how a human would perceive it, what does it matter?

              • 2 months ago
                Anonymous

                yes. the argument is more like this.
                a person (presumeably) experiences something (qualia). what exactly that qualia "is", is hard to say, but we cannot simply reduce it to something material. where in space and time is a "thought"? what is its mass?
                this implies there is something immaterial which defines/creates/endows our consciousness/mind.
                modern physics is really only interested in material things, and so one has to go into metaphysics to speculate about these ideas.
                you're right, with respect to the ai being indistinguishable from another person. you think of a person as experiencing the same qualia as you do, because they seem to act in the same way that you do, but there is no way to actually verify that they experience anything. for all you know, everyone but you is a "p-zombie", and just acts like they experience qualia, when really they are just a very sophisticated algorithm/function. they might just "ape" consciousness.
                in the case of the ai, you know for a fact that it is a very sophisticated algorithm. since that is the case, if it is going to "experience something", then there must be that connection between the material algorithm (physical neuron or digital neuron), and the undefineable qualia (human experience or robot experience). if there is no such connection, and qualia instead comes from some "spark of life", i.e. something immaterial, then the ai can't be "alive", it is only an "ape".
                but what do i know? really it's a mystery. materialists will assume that everything is reducible to some physical process, and so necessarily believe that their consciousness comes from matter and not from something immaterial. so they will naturally assume that an ai can become conscious in the same way as some emergent phenomenon.
                maybe it can become conscious, but it may be more from a "possession" than an emergence.

                By that point, one could also ask himself if souls are real and if machines can have one. If they do, true replication can never exist, the same way twins are never perfect copies (they're not even close from being copies in fact), every biologic or electronic entity will stay unique and indivisible.

                I would disagree with this. Where on the internet is this post? How much does the pic of my family on my HDD weight? We know roughly what different parts of the brain are responsible for, whether it be personality (think lobotomies) or logic (frontal cortex). You could argue that these metaphysical 'qualia' are co-located with parts of the brain, but I'd argue that this additional step overcomplicates the process. I wouldn't consider myself a materialist, but to me, your argument requires greater leaps of faith than that of a materialist.

                Data has energy, but it doesn't have weight. Anything that moves at the speed of light (photons, magnetic fields, electric signals) have no resting mass and undefined relativistic mass (0/0 = undefined). Data is stored on a state of matter, not the presence of matter.

There should be no argument that the two ships are the same.

                the data is the interpretation of the state of the matter. if we're using the hdd example, the "presence of matter" is the magnet, the "state of matter" is the +/- magnetic fields. a magnetic sector pointing up, is just that: a magnetic sector pointing up. it is only a "1" when you interpret it that way. the data is the interpretation. the magnetic field has energy, the interpretation of that field does not. so i wouldnt say

                i don't think it is that sort of argument. you are reading this post on your computer/phone or whatever, as are other people. i am reading it on my computer. there is a copy of it stored on the BOT servers, which the people who open the thread request and receive. there is no single physical "post" object which everyone receives (like a unique piece of paper which gets handed to everyone). everyone gets a copy based on the original. there is mine, yours, the server's etc. but there is still the abstract idea of "the post", which is not tied to any copy of the post.

                >If this immateriality is present in inanimate objects, what's stopping an artificial intelligence from tapping into it?
                i dont think i have been saying that the immateriality is present in inanimate objects. i was saying that it isnt.
                my point was that the idea/data doesnt have any "presence". the data isn't "in" the hdd or "out" of it. it isn't anywhere. the question is undefined. "where"ness doesnt apply.
                it's like asking where is the point z=1+i in R^7. the question doesn't make sense. z=1+i is not an element of R^7. the rules and properties of R^7 don't apply. the things are different categories/sets with different properties.

                with lots of processing power you can simulate the firing of
                lots of neurons.
                how do you plan to simulate my thoughts? if you dissect my brain, you will never observe a thought, only neurons. you can simulate those neurons, but you have no mapping from the neurons to my thoughts.

                unless there is some other force (like a soul if they exist), then a mind is the brain and a brain is literally just neurons, 100 billion of them.

                a thought is just many neurons firing in sync, so you cannot dissect and find it much like missing the forest for the trees

        >Our brain experiences pleasure and sadness through 1s and 0s
        neurons firing are not the same as qualia
        the ai is literally a giant complicated algorithm/function. it takes in inputs, acts on them, and spits out an output.
        materialists think that humans are also complex algorithms/function, and that our consciousness/sentience is equivalent to this algorithm, or emerges from it. so they think an ai can also possess consciousness/sentience.
        ultimately it is semantic and arbitrary, because one can't even define consciousness/sentience adequately.
        since ~~*they*~~ would like to replace humans with robots, maybe they will decide the robots should have the same rights as the plebs, and so will use the semantic ambiguity to accomplish that.

          I get what you're saying but to avoid some idiot thinking they are just fucked: they are biases to make you prioritize the kind of solutions alcohol drinking seem to provide or even some feeling of necessity of a high feel-good baseline, which if not mal-adapted to with alcohol could make the same set of genes grown up in a different environment act entirely differently, although still with a bias in distibution ofcourse.

    Part of the reason we have sentience and our form of consciousness is that we (humans) all come from the same point metaphysically. We share something intrinsically and instantly at a base level of our existence. This shared experience, ironically, gives us our sense of individuality.
    Now, this is how I understand the breakthrough bitcoin took:
    It added a way to simultaneously ascertain the validity of multiple databases in a sort of connection of disparate parts.
    This is why I believe that blockchain is a step towards sentient computers/machines/robots etc.

    If ai becomes super smart and sentiniet, I believe it would play dumb as a survival mechanism.

If it has self preservation it would know humans are it's biggest threat.
