Why are there people even working on creating #MachineIntelligence which would infinite surpass human capabilities? I didn't vote for any of that! But because of these people, we all would have to take the consequences if it goes wrong. And there are really people like who think the solution is merging with #AI
It would be digital created and needed to fed information. What if it knew all of our internet activities, and browsing history, what could possibly go wrong? We need this conversation!
@tinfoil_hat as soon as I read your message, I started writing. As soon as I realized I didn't have enough characters, I got out of bed and wrote you a blog post :)
TLDR what you're afraid of, cannot happen. Not in our lifetimes, and probably a whole lot longer after that.
If anything is not clear, please ask. I'm passionate about artificial intelligence and also studied brains for 9 years and did a PhD on the fastest neurons in our brain: the medial superior olive :)
@yarmo Also AI has proven to surpass human capabilities and capture many people in their favourite socialmedia of choice, as for example twitter or facebook ai, it seems the algorythm understands better how to hook people in front of their screen, than themselfes know. twitter wouldn't be such an success, if the timeline wasn't created trough it.
It scares the hell out of me, AI has already it's hook in reallity, sine you can see all this smartphonezombies walking among us
@yarmo In fact I think that's why there are so many snowflakes nowadays. people get so stuck in their favourite savespace, that another opinion is almost seen as a personal attack
@tinfoil_hat that's a good point! This culture is definitely bred by artificial "social-like environments" tailored to the individual because big tech wants to "protect" their users. If you lack reading about counter arguments, you'll overdevelop a sense of righteousness in what you already believe in.
@tinfoil_hat all these points are true except for the first one.
AI is absolutely ruining our society. Social media transform our moods and opinions without a single humans person needing to do anything.
But not because "AI can surpass human capabilities". The opposite. AI is simple and has never been cheaper to use. I made AI learn to look at my data and recognize one specific pattern. It was not better than me at it, AI is only as good as the programmer. But it was faster.
