Published on February 27, 2023

Artificial intelligence is increasingly becoming part of our lives, from self-driving cars to ChatGPT. John Oliver discusses how AI works, where it might be heading next, and, of course, why it hates the bus.

    Are we…are we…just gonna ignore ChatGPT telling us to be careful because we don’t know how it works? Cool, not asking any questions then.

    The funniest part about the Seinfeld thing was that it was a transphobic bit about how his transphobic jokes weren’t landing and nobody would laugh.

    The narrative here seems to be: “Luckily AI is not self aware yet. It has problems though and we should remedy that by making it explain itself.” Hmm, that solution will accelerate the process of getting broad AI even more We’re doomed.

    Hey, AI might kill us all, but let’s make sure it isn’t racist about it.

    A computer scientist here. Unblackboxing AI is a challenge with active research going on. The problem is, artificial neural networks (ANN) which power these deep learning algorithms are very similar to human mind. In its core, these systems have neurons that are extremely simple. Being able to understand why a small scale ANN gave a particular answer is difficult but possible. When you try the same on an AI that has 175 billion neurons, things get near impossible. It is similar to understand why a person gave a certain answer by examining cellular structure of their brain.

    Am I the only one who heard “the ghost of Ed Harris” and immediately did a panicked google search? (He’s still alive!)

    Anyway, tho, speaking as a freelance content creator who’s going to be caught in all this (and whose work has undoubtedly helped train AIs) I just want to say: other creatives and freelancers, don’t bother trying to fight this. You will not win that battle. AI is already here. The genie is out of the bottle, pandora’s box is open, horses vs cars, etc etc.

    Time spent trying to fight against it will be wasted, when that time could be used to evolve and adapt. Find ways to use these new tools to expand your marketability, or add to your service offerings, or make cool new art. That will be by far the best use of your time in the next few years, not fighting a losing battle. Some of us will get displaced, sadly – but the first to go will be those who haven’t added “AI whisperer” to their skillset.

    AI is the future. Hopefully we can get it functional, before humans die out
