I just find out that AI is gonna extinct humanity. And developers will be on a privileged sit to appreciate that. So i decided to learn python and machine learning to help!

    I hope you're joking, otherwise you'll be very disappointed once you see how current AI actually works.

    @rutee07 I'm joking partially. There was a time where cellphones were not that impressive. And that was just twenty years ago...

    I'm sure the firsr true AI will be developed in a basement by some folk listening to « Welcome to the Machine » by Pink Floyd

    @Cultist Hum, if it is was 30 years ago maybe, but now new things this big aren't available to a mere dev on his play time...

    Research groups in big labs have: money, time, knowledge, man workforce and ... data.

    And this kind of problem are very unlikely to be solved by a lonely guy because he got a good idea that nobody had tested.

    Yes, good new idea in IA architecture/learning can show impressive improvement! Like the new openAI text modeling. But without data, high hardware and time, others would already have made better than you even with a weaker model.

    (not saying that they are also more likely to have good ideas)

    But the first evil IA that will ruin the world... this one may be built in a basement :)

    Welcome!

    Seja bem-vindo! :)

    AI will never exterminate humans because AI needs way too much resources that we won't be having for that long anymore anyway. All while humans can replicate even in third world shitholes.

    @Fast-Nop Space Mining will solve that issue. Guess who we're sending to mine asteroids? Yup, freakin' robots.

    @Cultist No it won't. Look at how much resources it costs to build and send up a spaceship that is large enough to carry anything meaningful, AND make it land with the material afterwards, then you know why.

    It's not about what might be technologically feasible in a single instance as demo project. It's whether that would scale up as solution.

    @Fast-Nop Reminds me of "The Last Question" I learned from a hookup.

    @Fast-Nop I was joking... we all know the earth is flat and space is a lie.

    For everybody that are skeptical about the possibility: https://youtube.com/watch/...

    In this video Sam Harris explain why he thinks this a matter of concern. His point is: since intelligence is just a matter of processing information and the technology advance in this field exponentially is simply a matter of time until we face problems with ethic conflicts in AI.

    @jorgeMachado His point is wrong in the premise, and therefore, the conclusion is nonsense.

    Of course, that doesn't exclude the possibility of autonomous weapon systems malfunctioning. That would have happened several times with a nuclear war as result if the weapon systems hadn't had human controllers.

    @Fast-Nop What exactly is wrong with the premise?
  • 0
    @jorgeMachado It's reductionist nonsense, that's what's wrong. I bet he hasn't even basic knowledge of epistemology, and such nonsense is what happens as result.
  • 0
    @Fast-Nop So... there's something mysterious in the argument that you don't need to address to refute?
  • 0
    @jorgeMachado It's not an argument, it's an assumption. If you really think that this reductionist stuff makes sense, then I'd have to start over at basics of epistemology and similar things, and I don't have the time or motivation for that.

    Just a hint, read some classic philosophers. The debate is totally not new, only the vocabulary is.

    @Fast-Nop Well... you said the premise is wrong therefor the conclusion is wrong (which is a bad response - the premises being wrong don't invalidates automatically the conclusion). Then i presumed you accepted it has an argument, but it's ok. I'll read more.

    @jorgeMachado Technically, you're right - it would have been more correct to say that ANY conclusion can follow from a wrong premise.

    @jorgeMachado cellphones were not that impressive to the average user. Technologists and scientists knew they had massive potential.
    A.I and M.L have massive potential, but you are greatly overstating the value of it since we are merely using them for data processing more than pattern recognition itself. Intelligence is defined as pattern recognition, not data processing, there is quite the difference in that area. The idea that A.I will somewhat destroy us is kinda funny and far fetched.

    We can weaponize M.L. but no machine is gonna look at you and say "fuck this guy imma kill it for the glory of Robotnia!!"<----- other than your computer and microwave that is
