Thoughts on making AI illegal for industrial/enterprise use?

Thoughts on making AI illegal for industrial/enterprise use? It will never happen, obviously, especially in a corporate-controlled state like America, because AI is too profitable and useful to companies.

However, wouldn't it be cool to limit this technology to hobbyists, while retaining lots of jobs and human work in the process?

A very simple solution could be forcing all AI work to be FOSS in nature, then if companies start using it to write programs and software, or to make art, boom, it's open source and you can't copyright it, anyone can redistribute it at any time with no penalty. That way, we still have a use for software engineers and human artists, and the technology is still allowed to exist and grow for personal projects and hobby use.

    Yeah I love making moronic laws that won't be followed by the megacorps that can get away with it, but can be used to crush smaller competitors without the resources to hide their violations or pay off the fines. What a smart idea OP. Maybe next we can make murder illegal too so it stops happening.

    AI is a very nonspecific idea that can apply to pretty much anything. You can't ban AI without effectively banning computers.
    The best you can hope to do is ban the automation of specific tasks by requiring a human to supervise the AI, like with trucking.

      Well, for example, you could cite specific language models, image models, shit like that. Say specifically "You can't use GPT to replace real human workers," update every now and then when a new model comes out, same applies to stable diffusion and DALL-E.
      You could also blanket restrict commercial use of neural networks, I'm sure it wouldn't be impossible to define what that is in legal terms.

      Remember, when the internet started it was unregulated and unfiltered. We are in the "wild-west" days of AI.

      why would we want to maintain jobs if they are obsolete? The whole point behind developing new technologies is that it allows us to further specialize as a society and produce more shit. For every code monkey out of the job we just got another construction worker, plumber, welder, etc. That will bring the price of infrastructure and housing down.

      Not every software engineer and compsci student is a codemonkey. Yes, lots of dumbass programmers exist, and they should be laid off or replaced. But what about the 25% of us who actually give a shit and program not only for the money but also because we love doing it?

            Yes but usually it's individuals using drugs, not corporations. Constantly making new AI models would have terrible economy of scale. And doing so would be frowned upon if it was illegal.

                This is due to a variety of things including what you mentioned. I've known people who were hooked on SSRIs, I almost fell for the trap myself before realizing that pills wouldn't solve anything.
                Zoomers ARE doing shit though. I would argue that the average zoomer is FAR more skilled than their millennial counterpart was at the same age. Most of us have recognized that we will have to work our asses off or starve, there isn't really an in between anymore. That's why you see so many zoomers on chinatok and youtube flexing their small businesses and portfolios (keep in mind zoomers are up to mid 20s now). Hell, even I'm constantly working on side projects and games. At my age a millennial or gen-x was probably smoking pot in his dorm complaining about "society" or some dumb shit unless they were groomed by wealth to start a business or something. I knew a kid in high school who did the dropshipping meme and made so much money he bought a used 1990s Toyota MR2.

                I don't think anything will give, though. People are dumb, very dumb, and the older humans get the more passive minded they become. There is no change right now because boomers are in control and genx/millennials are pussies. By the time zoomers are in control they'll be parents in their 30s and they'll have the same onions mindest too.

    Honestly, I think this idea is a bit naive. Sure, it might be cool to limit AI use to hobbyists and retain human jobs, but it's just not practical. Companies are always going to do whatever makes them the most money, and if AI is profitable and useful for them, they're going to use it, regardless of whether it's legal or not.

    Forcing all AI work to be FOSS is also not a realistic solution. Companies invest a lot of time and money into AI research and development, and they need to be able to protect their intellectual property. If everything were open source, there would be little incentive for companies to invest in AI at all, and we might miss out on some really innovative advancements.

    At the end of the day, I think we need to accept that AI is here to stay and it's going to be used in industry and enterprise. Instead of trying to limit it, we should focus on finding ways to integrate it with human work and create new job opportunities. Maybe that means investing in education and retraining programs, or finding ways to use AI to complement human creativity and problem-solving. But just trying to ban or limit it is not the answer.

    First we will need something like Hiroshima and Nagasaki to put the fear of AI into the entire world, and seeing how things are evolving it this is going to happen more sooner than later.

    For those who think this is impossible, this is the reason why you can legally shoot someone involved in human organ trafficking in most of the planet and oil is being phased out in Western Europe, you CAN restrict technologies so things don't spiral out of control, why indeed, we have little time, but that's an even bigger reason to act while the window of opportunity is still present.

            That's not what I meant by the singularity. I meant all humans eventually forming together to create a higher form of being, similar to how cells grouped up to form tissues and tissues formed up to create the first organisms millions of years ago.

            regardless, the easiest way to "limit" AI is to lock it into stupid shit like text generation and image models. ChatGPT can't launch nukes because it's literally just a program that spits out words.

    Companies won't stop using a technology that is profitable just because your pea-sized brain thinks it's cool.

    Also, why the frick would anyone limit the use of AI technology only to hobbyists like you?
    What makes you think that people who are good with computers don't deserve jobs in the industry anymore if they work on AI?
    Your idea is stupid as shit and completely unrealistic.

    And let's not forget about your FOSS bullshit.
    That's not how copyright laws work, dumbass.
    People can still protect their intellectual property even if it's open source.

      I don't think it's "cool" I think it's destroying jobs and putting actual humans out of work. It's unethical.

      >Also, why the frick would anyone limit the use of AI technology only to hobbyists like you?
      Because it's putting honest workers (programmers and shit, not moronic liberal arts careers like artists, people who've actually contributed to society) out of jobs and taking away their main source of income.

      >That's not how copyright laws work, dumbass.
      It literally is.
      >People can still protect their intellectual property even if it's open source.
      They literally can't. The GNU license says you can't make money off of the work itself or any forks/derivatives.
