notes on A.I.

The state of #AI, as summarized by @pluralistic (Cory Doctorow)

"We're nowhere near the point where an AI can do your job, but we're well past the point where your boss can be suckered into firing you and replacing you with a bot that fails at doing your job."

Jo Jitsu

@festal @pluralistic they will have to pay 3x as much more at least to fix the damage done, loss of coherent information and system knowledge, future lawsuits, and to bring competent workers back in to rebuild all over when they realize they’ve been scammed.


This is basically the point Angela Collier makes also at around this section of her video called "AI does not exist but it will ruin everything anyway". Fun to watch the whole thing.

»Consciousness, I’m convinced, originates in desire. Every living being “wants” things, complex reasoning capability is one strategy (uncovered by evolution) that can help one acquire things, and complex reasoning can lead to self-awareness — especially in social creatures.«
