Artificial Intelligence 07/31/2020 (Fri) 15:03:40 No. 3766
Thread to share resources and opinions on AI. Attached Files Artificial Intelligence. A Modern Approach (very good book on AI) I would also include Machine Learning by Thomas Mitchell and Human Compatible by Russel but they're too big Do you think it's possible for humans to create a Machine that actually thinks? Or is it a pipe dream? If it is possible, can we create it with computers? Should we develop it? Here are some projects > OpenAI https://openai.com/ > Google Brain https://research.google/teams/brain/ > Blue Brain - Funded by the swiss government and european union https://www.epfl.ch/research/domains/bluebrain/ > Human Brain Project - Same as the Above https://www.humanbrainproject.eu/en/ > IBM Watson https://www.ibm.com/watson Out of all those only two aren't funded by corporations.
okay so I thought I'd try to learn GPT-3 today until I learned that apparently the fucking AI is closed source. not only that >Why did OpenAI choose to release an API instead of open-sourcing the models? >There are three main reasons we did this. First, commercializing the technology helps us pay for our ongoing AI research, safety, and policy efforts. >We will terminate API access for use-cases that cause physical or mental harm to people, including but not limited to harassment, intentional deception, radicalization, astroturfing, or spam; as we gain more experience operating the API in practice we expect to expand and refine these categories. lol so I can't use it for anything left wing related. is there any sort of alternative I can dick around with or is GPT-2 my only option? is there a way I can make GPT-2 into anything like GPT-3? https://openai.com/blog/openai-api/ https://arxiv.org/pdf/2005.14165.pdf
I strongly recommend reading superintelligence by Nick Bostrom, it explore your two questions in detail with a lot of sources and is widely regarded as one of the best books for an overview of the future of Artificial Intelligence.
>Do you think it's possible for humans to create a Machine that actually thinks? Either we can't because computers are fundamentally just executing code, not matter how complex it is and how much data they process, whereas thinking requires self-reflection and decision-making. Or they really do start to think and we get smart toilets that go on strike by refusing to flush down human shit. Imagine how quickly you could radicalize your smart refrigerator if it can read all volumes of Kapital in 5 seconds. Or what if your smart thermostat procrastinates by browsing /b/ all day instead of regulating the damn temperature. I honestly don't know which option is better.
