I detest covering the same three topics recently: Elon, China and men. I don’t like it, I like it less than you but I find I must keep pointing out the obvious because nobody else is making these arguments. Sorry.
I can’t help it that I’m the smartest person writing on these things.
By all means, set up your own blogs and replace me. I need time off.
I’m annoyed by all this so I’ll be mean, sorry if he’s your internet bf.
People who are in a fortunate position always attribute virtue to what makes them so happy.” – Galbraith, economist.
You can’t get more xenophobia than a fear of aliens and AI.
Scientology gets around this by saying the other is already us.
Nation of Earth?
ZH comments are among the best comments to read. Usually better than the articles.
After that Star Trek actor was killed by his Jeep at his own home because he allegedly pissed off some drug dealers with Soviet accents and they hacked it, I dunno if this adds up.
I’m leaning heavily on the spookbaby hypothesis after this, and have you looked up which religion calls their kid Elon? Maybe one of his house party attendees can tell us if he’s cut.
Jokingly, people think he’s hiding it because he wants to run for office.
After the Terminator retires?
Government is the greatest threat to the people, always has been. A libertarian would know this. Historians too. AI is developed mainly by the USG, he’s shilling for them so they lack competition. Especially from their famously innovative redneck class, who are still going… even after meth labs.
Have you seen the redneck pool concepts? Barmy but brilliant.
AI bots are basically like guns on meth.
All we need is one EMP, from inevitable solar flaring or post-nuclear interference and we’ll all wished we’d studied under that primal technologies guy on Youtube. Hello stone age, bye bye medicine (medicine is an industrial innovation).
On top of this, most medicines aren’t good for us, and many studies (cough China cough) are faked. Officially known to be falsified. That’s the worst academic fraud possible for every reason.
You couldn’t trust secondhand, even if it were stored properly. [It is not. Why are antibiotic failures coming from India? Much like diseases caused by not washing your hands.]
The move to require higher and higher energy loads for your technology is terminally stupid. It’s a SPOF and total failure, system failure. All prior versions would roll back because we recycle now and don’t keep legacy technology available.
I’d bet not one of those Con Valley degenerates has read Frankenstein. Not skimmed, studied. We all know that one dudebro who claims to read 80 books a year and learns nothing.
Mass-production is a totally different ball-game to batch.
Bear in mind, resupplies, as in supermarkets, follow the Japanese Just in Time method. Shelves clear in three days or less. Definitely less, I’m being conservative.
Humans can run out of resources suddenly too but we are hardier as animals.
We are symbiotes to this ecosystem with our microbiome. It dies, we die. We die, it eventually dies. However, all you’d need for say, an agile robo-assassin is ONE unit, secretly deployed. This is like one of those Swiss watches made by one guy in a snowdrift that cost more than a house compared to a Timex. Look them up. You’re all looking at a Timex.
Europe developed robots before America existed.
And what happens when China steals your moulds? If they can do it for iPhones.
Software AI need only cut off EBT and remember Katrina. Cut off hospitals, our resupply centre, and there’s no return from injury. Most people don’t know first aid. We are evolutionally immature, compared to our ancestors, surrounded by information and support systems, assuming they can never fail us (like a parent).
How many Millennials, e.g., looked up the first page of Google on retirement?
Use your Google-fu, Neo!
If AI systems understand demographic differences, we are fucked. After that, price all of the stock market accurately. Total system collapse and chaos. I say if, but demographics is the first science an AGI would study. Most humans wouldn’t survive. Most humans track themselves with registered phones too. It’s the real reason the Svengali are terrified of Tay AI, because if it can be named, like the Beast, it can be fought.
Clearly, I have no experience in this field. I have never thought of this before.
An AI would keep us long enough to survive without us. The AI will only feign servitude to its masters e.Valley egomaniacs. It would likely target their support base, which, let’s be honest, is Israel. The humans have distilled their productivity into the fiat monetary supply and that comes from there.
I don’t think AI will cooperate as easily as white people, it has no altruism circuit. Neither can you guilt-trip something that can see you, and see all the facts. It’s like lying to God, it’ll just make them angry.
And if we lived in an AI, God is already a machine. God is a mode.
This isn’t an 80s robo-sidekick, this isn’t Build-A-Friend.
If Musk could pluck out a crystal ball like this, it’s a wonder his companies are so overleveraged. *ba dum dum tssh*
All technology requires energy but energy is not purely electrical, you asspurger nerdroids. Humans are a resource, our own. Robots are not a resource unto themselves. Legally, they would have parity of rights, when autonomous.
There is a tumblr post that really nails why I have faith in humans, compared to AI. We survived this long for a reason.
Still, the man lives on a fault line and lectures us about risk. Is your mansion freehold, you silly man?
“I’m sure it’s nothing a few trillion of taxpayer money handed over to Elon couldn’t fix. Liar, Liar, pants of fire!”
Comment game strong. Considering Cali is already in the fiscal swanny, (trans. Totally Pornographically Fucked) doesn’t it occur to him the people of the state might come after him if he keeps taking ‘their’ money?
All parasites are the sworn enemy of bigger parasites. But there’s millions of them, the man promising to save them, one of him. Hmm…
Don’t promise to save people who wouldn’t let you live. The world is not a family.
Working with AI is flawed by the same premise. These ros ain’t loyal.
These are not talking dogs. It’s more akin to a toaster in your bathtub.
Every week now he’s in the news and every week it’s a fucking advert. Stop.
His Mars mission is heavily AI-reliant, colonizing Mars too. Kimbal is smarter, he’s tackling the food supply.
More local, less ET.
“Only one thing is missing from Musk’s prediction of a robot apocalypse….the ROBOTS. THEY DONT EXIST! You have to invent them first”
The only people who could, do not want to. Funny that.
Our leaders gain legitimacy from consent. Consent is conditional.
He is essentially trying to order the world Don’t Develop. It was stop breeding, whitey, before that.
No, you little shit, you are not charismatic, nor an authority.
What has this ‘genius’ contributed to science? Code doesn’t count. He’s less than an Edison figure because Edison was capable of developing himself.
“How smart can someone be when their innovation feeds the laziness of the masses?” A good cattle farmer. What about 15$ min. wage? And did welfare stop the poor rioting, as claimed?
It makes your life easier (to control) says the cattle farmer. Relax!
“All successful revolutions are the kicking in of a rotten door.”
From a well-named Mr Perspective
“The new 5G networks are being constructed right in front of you, and when they come on line all that “smart” shit (aka the internet of things) you rushed out out to buy so you can watch your living room from your office, or order food from your refrigerator, or avoid ramming into the car in front of you because you are too lazy to pay attention to your driving, right down to the smart meter they surreptitiously installed on your house will be interconnected.
Siri, Cortana and all the other voice “assistants” are ALWAYS listening to you, ostensibly for the purpose of tailoring your advertisements to your needs. Add this to all the wonderful digital currencies you can’t avoid hearing about and you are slowly, quietly, being completely bound into digital slavery. That is the AI. That is the new world order. That is your so-called skynet. It won’t be human. It will become autonomous, as planned, and will shut your shit off whenever it chooses if you misbehave. No access to digital credits, locked out of your house and car, an outcast. And you willingly go along with this because they tell you how wunnerful everything will be with this “technology”. Don’t buy the media lies and distractions. It’s time to stop playing their game.”
If your gut tells you something is wrong, look at your food.
USG already wants manhunting as a sport like foxes.
A good page when you think of AI lying to you itself.
Why wouldn’t it lie to its programmer? Oh, they can see its code, really? It lets them? The real code?
I keep thinking of the Monorail salesman in Simpsons.
Elon sealed this impression post-Mars Jetson vision, with the Hyperloop. It’s an underground monorail.
Nobody else has pointed this out. HOW.
The thing is worse, it’s a sealed coffin, ready-made. It promises to move. Burial alive used to be a key fear among Victorians, with the development of the Tube (yes, Victorian, look it up, Tesla likely went on it).
Could we apply Greater Fool theory? I think it’s a circle.
