>there’s no point consuming any media or trying to learn anything anymore because everything could now be an AI generated fake. you could read a “news article” about something that never even happened and all the “photographs” and “videos” of it are just made by AI

>there’s not even any point playing video games any more because pretty soon they’ll probably just force you to use AI to play your games for you

          Imagine if every time you played a video game it came with a button that put the game on auto-pilot and finished the game for you, without you having to do anything.

          Do you get what I mean now? Automation ruins the point of life. Life isn’t just about getting to the end point as easily/quickly as possible, it’s about the whole process in between. AI removes that process.

              But that defeats the point.

              Imagine you have a really hard video game that is a challenge to beat. Proving you got to the end and beat it on the hardest difficulty is a mark of pride and gives you a huge sense of accomplishment.

              Then one day the developer adds the ability to auto-pilot through the game without having to input any controls yourself, and people start claiming “I beat the game on hardest difficulty!” when they didn’t even do anything.

              It destroys the whole point of it. It makes what was previously a hard accomplishment into something pointless and trivial.

                It was fashionable to downplay AI when all we had were science fiction movies, that has changed since the development of new architectures.

    ’s no point building a career because 99% of jobs will be eliminated or ruined by AI
    Building a career is gay. Get a job to make money, dumbass. AI won't pay your bills for you
    ’s no point learning any kind of skill or art form (drawing, playing an instrument, crafting anything, etc) because AI will do all of those things
    Implying the reason why you would learn a skill or artform otherwise is because it "needs doing". You were never going to make it
    ’s no point conversing on the internet anymore because literally everyone you interact with could just be an AI in disguise
    True, conversing on the internet is shit and makes you miserable
    ’s no point forming connections with humans IRL because eventually chatbots will replace real world socialisation for 99% of people (just like smartphones/internet already replaced the real world)
    So you do want to converse with AI then? Make up your fricking mind
    ’s no point consuming any media or trying to learn anything anymore because everything could now be an AI generated fake. you could read a “news article” about something that never even happened and all the “photographs” and “videos” of it are just made by AI
    "too much misinformation. The solution is no information" OK moron
    ’s not even any point playing video games any more because pretty soon they’ll probably just force you to use AI to play your games for you
    You let tyrone frick your wife and that still brings you enjoyment

    moronic takes, you are mentally ill

    Also
    >AI can now draw, why learn when I can't monetize it?
    If you learned to draw just to make money you have no right to call yourself an artist

      The factory take is fricking stupid
      Sure people are still buying stuff from individuals, but how much? Factories fricked small manufacturers that used to be THE industry

    Just ask the ASI how to find meaning in a post-scarcity utopia. Ask it how to avoid the trap of wireheading/hedonic treadmill. If it’s smart enough to do all that it will be smart enough to be the perfect spiritual leader for humanity.

    >there is no point doing anything fun, productive, or interesting because there's a chance something else could do it in the future
    Listen to me anon, maybe AI will come and take over everything, maybe it won't. maybe you'll live to your late 90's surrounded by loving family, maybe you'll get hit by some butthole's lambo going 200 tomorrow. the question is that when you die do you want to die sitting there cynically waiting for the end or do you want to get out there and do shit you want to while you still can?

    With your mindset, you're completely right. Just give up everything now and rot in your bed, since there's no reason to do anything that a machine can do better. Any attempt to do any activity/hobby/job will just make you more depressed, because you'll always remember that you could simply prompt a machine to do it instead. Clearly you're helpless, so there's no reason to try to convince you otherwise.

    you know how people still play chess even though AI is better than any human? its cause for chess players they enjoy the game itself. so just do what you think is fun even if the AI is undeniably better

      chess is a game, not an art. the fun part of art is not the making of it, it's showing other people when it's done, it's the sharing of ideas. i was born in a world where every piece of art and music was made by humans, who had to think about it, and had some feelings about it, and there was some human story behind every tiny piece of art. babies being born today are unlikely to remember a world where any art is made by humans, everything they see and hear while growing up will be manifested by an unfeeling algorithm whose only purpose is to make bigger profit margins.

      as an npc yourself you probably don't care. plug yourself into the pleasure cube, I'm sure it will all be fine.

      even better if you want to respond with the classic npc argument of "uhhh but ai can't draw hands also ai music sound bad". how would you feel if you didn't have breakfast this morning?

        i personally do pottery even though nothing i create will ever be as good as something created in a soulless factory across the world not in terms of design complexity or base function. this has been the case before i was born yet i still practice the hobby i give my friends custom bowls and sculptures as a gift and despite the gift being worse than what they could get off of Amazon for 50$ they enjoy having it (if nothing else as a conversation piece). even if they wanted nothing to do with home made crafts i would still create for no one but myself.

        tldr try to enjoy the act of creation if you enjoy what you do people will enjoy what you make.

    they will be telling you this for the next 10-20 years

    I also don't believe there will ever be UBI. At the point that there's a labor crisis because AI is doing everything, the media will start shilling euthanasia. Mark my words.

    Good news, anon. You no longer have to define yourself by your career. It is a very unique time to be a human being.
