For those of you scared of the ZOMG imminent threat of AI.....

In Spanish, in particular to the way it is spoken in Mexico, we know curly hair to be called "chino" or "chinos" in certain places. This is funny because Chino is actually what we call Chinese people.

So. The other day I mentioned in a friend of mine's post the text "pinches chinos" in regards to the pain of having curly hair(which I also have) during windy days.

FB being the retarded piece of shit that it is took it as hate speech, pinches chinos can be roughly translated to "fucking curly hair" in this regard, but because FB is retarded as all fuck it took it as me spewing some hate speech again'st their Chinese overlords.

I normally wouldn't give a fuck, if it weren't because one of my friends is celebrating their birthdays today and I can't post shit on his wall due to me being on facebook jail.

I have known this dude since I was 6, currently 29, but no, FB decided that I was some racist prick somehow and because of that I can't go ahead and post something to him. Its fine, I was still capable of calling him and celebrating with my boy, but still.

An AI will not be able to detect the difference between a fucking cat and a lion, it is shitty technology, it is interesting because of the math behind it, but seriously, not something to be scared about, skynet is far from coming into existence.

Fuck FB and fuck people scared about AI and deep learning

    They're a who's who of people who were too fringe, arbitrarily violent and racist for Alaska. My uncle used to be one of them before he got caught taking evidence narcotics for personal use, I've dealt with them enough for one life. Aaand now they're deployed here as "peace keeping forces."

    @M1sf3t yeah I mean if it is true it should be illegal, my bad for not specifying :P

    About the illegal but they are giving data to lawmakers... Yeah, it's true but this makes it even worse in my point of view.
    I used to feel stupid because I cannot stand most points of modern life, but the more I read and study, the more I feel like it's stupid to not react to them... It's sad to highlight this, but... Black mirror is not a distopy, black mirror is the present.

    A few years ago our Systems Engineering professor was talking about the same topic of the infeasibility of AI being a significant threat, stating that computers are not even capable of comprehending simple concepts like an infinitely recurring decimal.

    All they do is approximate it good enough for practical uses, kind of like that nerd in school who doesn't understand jack shit about the subject but can memorize enough to get a good grade.

    You can teach the machine all sorts of tricks and smarts but it will always be surface-level smarts.

    And I thought Chinos were a kind of trousers/pants.

    @d4ng3r0u5 you might have heard it from someone at one point. I personally have not heard it, but it wouldn't surprise me, there are some words used by the many dialects that catch me off guard. For example, Puerto Ricans (some) call trucks or busses "guagua" which in English sounds like "wawa" and I know of some Cubans that do it the same way. Common to their dialect, foreign to others.

    Language is a funny, but very interesting thing.

    @d4ng3r0u5 As the cloth itself was originally made in China, the trousers were known in Spanish as pantalones chinos (Chinese pants), which became shortened to simply "chinos" in English. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
