You have it. Part of it is this place has grown far, far, far, far, far....
far, faarr, far, far, far
too spectrum. My Brother and Father are way spectrum too. It’s great. They are genius. They’re also super nice and very open minded though, so I fear the problems in this sick community are worse. Again, there’s nothing wrong with being spectrum; but lacking empathy is always a huge problem. I’m saddened by this. But my family also have great women in their lives, another thing this community lacks. Not the greatness of them, but the more of them. The, what’s the word… Balance.
Eliezer is super creative and has a great sense of humor, so I’m not sure how this was allowed to happen. Not that it’s for me to decide.
Thank you, moridinamael
Ordinary for what? Ordinary for this small community? It’s a big world out there.
Thank you, Gavin
Whatever we do, let’s not anthropomorphize AI. I mean, computer software. Winky face.
Ok, fellas, this is getting ridiculous. I’ve lost all the karma I accumulated for years in this community, over 3 simple lines. Something doesn’t add up
One day you will see, that it is because the post is relatively complete. It’s not minimal for characters used. It wouldn’t fit in a tweet. But it’s concise, and true. My destroyed karma says nothing about the truth of what I said. It speaks loudly about this community. What does it say?
The more different subjects, venues, and experiences in the world that you open your eyes to, the more you will see that we are in a smooth, soft takeoff. Now.
I am very comfortable with everything you said. It saddens me slightly that you are not? Thank you for this feedback.
Thank you, ChristianKI
I don’t want to taboo AI at this time. It is too universal a term. And that AI = Software is my central thesis, so I will not taboo that.
I am suggesting your comment implied to me you still compare AIs with humans a bit too much. We work to make software able to solve the set of problems it was designed for. This applies for Hello World, and for Singleton.
ArisKatsaris, I did not say “intentional”, and if I did, I would not mean it in quite the way you do. But I would mean it in an analogous way to our intentionality. Why did you insert this word?
This is another call for respectful dialog on the topic. Takers?
A brief word on credentials. I am a 23/24-year “veteran” of the software industry. I have worked on many types of software at Microsoft, and on simulation and optimization at Electronic Arts. I am an information scientist first, and an “armchair” theoretical physicist (with a pet TOE), and a hands-on consciousness researcher.
Thank you for the civil dialog.
Take google maps. On one end, it interacts through road sensors. On the other end, it serves us by telling about traffic.
This refers to my previous reply to you. Did you see it? Did you see the poetry, too? Why or why not?
It has helped me to conceptualize how a team and development process arrive at the shipping version of a software product. By seeing the process and outcome more clearly, it helps get where we are going more efficiently.
Appears so, so far.
A hint, before I leave you for awhile to actually read what I wrote. Dogma blinds us. The junk we put in our bodies hampers us. Egotism about what we think we know limits us. Egotism may lead you to believe these things have nothing to do with you, AI, or my words above, which is even yet more egotism. But if you do not understand the connection, you will be more limited than you dream.
We feel smart when our mind-set is self consistent, and answers most of the questions we’ve had so far. We must learn to ask New questions.
Oh, I almost forgot. Thank you all for helping me to shorten this to its essentials, though you did so in a way I would call unworthy of the idea.
And? This is about not expecting AIs to be like humans, but to be like, well, AIs. Artificial deciders.
