>>146010>if you have ideas for making it spam anarchist screeds somewhere, then sure.
That's a pretty good idea. Anything that will get a message out. I wonder if anyone's used AutoGPT for this yet. Though I'd say spam is less important as getting a tight message that actually resonates. I remember as a young person being exposed to anarchist slogans and thinking them quite outlandish, almost as if it were the best PR campaign against itself.
Making anarchism (and leftist ideas, more broadly) accessible would be a much wiser goal. We could be asking GPT how to do this. I had some success probing Bard on how to bring about direct democracy. It laid out a fairly reasonable set of steps after getting past the typical chat-based AI's tendency to evade anything remotely controversial.
>A leftist application of AI to improve society broadly requires a thorough reconstruction of society, which is what we've been saying all along is necessary, so it's just business as usual.
No, no, no, and no. This is philosophical and political suicide. "Society must be reconstructed first. We have no idea how to do this, or lack the numbers needed. So I'm allowed to just post and wait." There are so many uses for AI. It's a fucking tool. It doesn't have fucking prerequisites. I can use a hammer to build a house, smash a window when I lock myself out, smash a head, or even as a makeshift fork. Same goes for AI: multifaceted uses. The inability to see that is just a deep and profound lack of imagination on your part, and perhaps a defeatist temperament that lends itself well to leftist politics, because it certainly makes losing a whole lot easier…
I'd say one step toward getting use out of AI is first not getting tied into using the "Chat" versions. They're gated to prevent you from producing anything interesting. There are workarounds, but you can also use simple text completion without the severe content controls. A very accessible one is OpenAI's API and its Sandbox tool using Complete or Instruct. First 3 months are free. After that it's still incredibly cheap even for a great model like text-davinci-003.
