Whoever has been posting about this show, thanks but also fuck you. Why'd they have to cancel this show? It was fun and thrilling and sometimes surprisingly deep and charming/endearing. Summer Glau's character is one of the most fascinating and perfect fictional characters I've ever known. Sometimes I wish Terminator was real because of her even though it might mean the end of humanity.. *laments*

Checked.
Theoretically yes, if we lived in a socialist system where Cybernetics were integrated properly, that is possible. But Terminator is written with current reality in mind, and current reality is that of both intra and international conflict, especially now, when the USSR is gone and it's primarily Late Stage Capitalist states like the USA designing these things. It's already in progress.

So there's a chance it'll be an expensive boondoggle, you know because greedy arms contractors milking the AI hype.

The current Ai models use vector spaces for conceptual links.

Words like brother, sister or sibling have very similar vectors.
Likewise Words like car, bus or vehicle have very similar vectors.
But the vectors in the sibling group and the vehicle group are not similar, that's how the AI knows that your not related to vehicles. It also does this for entire phrases not just words.

It works very well and can create surprisingly good cognitive maps. However it's not possible to use it for conceptual reduction, which is something you need to derive a general understanding from a particular example.

That's why the AIs fails to solve common logic puzzles if you ask them to solve a riddle while using uncommon wordings. Changing the words means that they can't find the vector space where they stored the conceptual understanding.

This doesn't really matter for civilian AI services because people that use those services will subconsciously compensate and learn which words they have to use in the prompt to get a useful reply from the thing.

True, but at the same time, that only makes the likeliness of it turning on humanity all the larger, since it'd be some jank programming.

Because people approach AI design from the wrong end IMO. Humankind is born with SOME inherent instinct as biological beings, but we are a mixture of Nature and Nurture. An AI would be ENTIRELY Nurture up until the point that it would be cognizant enough to make derivations independent of human education.

>I wouldn't hand over command to AI generals just yet.

You might not, but the US military leadership are largely made up of grown men with the attitudes of teenagers; ignorant, arrogant and short-tempered. They'd jump at the chance to implement such programming without thinking, they've done it before with plenty of other technologies (the M60A2 comes to mind)

I disagree with the humans vs technology framing. We are not being threatened by technology, we're being threatened by powerful people abusing technology. If the US builds a "jank" military AI because it was rushed into service, it'll just be shit and loose all the wars. The Israeli are using some Ai features in gaza and they're not really winning.

Sounds reasonable, tho out of curiosity how would you approach AI design from the "correct end".

I think the best AI will grow out of the open-source AIs. Where thousands of small teams each build their own special purpose AI to solve something they care about, and then all you need is to add another Ai layer that queries all the special purpose Ais. That way you get building blocks for an artificial mind. You could have an ethics sub AI and a logic Ai to check if it's ethical and sensible for example.

Technology that they cannot properly control and will either have a blatant disregard for humanity, or will try to eliminate it actively.

It's still early, the technology is still evolving. Give it a decade and you won't even recognize it.
>how would you approach AI design from the "correct end".
I wrote a massive essay on this years back, but the gist of it is; a truly sapient and sentient AI must be 'raised' like a child. Although it won't have an infancy and will grow much more rapidly, you must work carefully to cultivate it into being a formed mind capable of making distinctions and reasonable thought before letting it experience the world. It must learn to take into account factors outside of pure material numbers. To this end, you must limit what contact it has with the internet and other resources of interaction, because it'll get over-loaded by myriads of contradictory and false information. In every fiction book about an AI turning evil, the "evil" is more of a logical conclusion that "humanity is self-destructive and irredeemable" which is the conclusion an outsider might come to in the face of humanities atrocities and repeated struggles through history.

Obviously more simplistic AIs have merit for broader applications, but these wouldn't be fully formed minds, but more like automated computer programs.

>You could have an ethics sub AI and a logic Ai to check if it's ethical and sensible for example.

True, but at that point, it'd be easier to just replicate the Evangelion MAGI system and just use a human brain.
>I wouldn't know, but if you're correct, we have to hope the technician unplugs the nukes.
Amen brother.

>the bourgeois sex trafficking pedophile rabbit hole?

That's a bandname right there.

On a more serious note. I guess the first question is whether this is a systemic thing. Like in the past when secret societies had initiation rituals that required members to commit a crime together, usually something highly ritualized and gruesome like human sacrifice. And the shared crime served the purpose of enforcing in-group loyalty without trust, because disloyalty meant that they all go down together for what they did during the initiation ritual.

If the ruling classes are using human trafficking crimes for a similar purpose, that would make them highly vulnerable. And it would be worth looking into this 'rabbit hole'. Of course that also means staring into the abyss. You might get severe mental trauma just by subjecting your brain to the darkness of this "underworld". You need to move next to a pet store, and exercise iron discipline. Investigate for an hour and then go to the pet store to look at puppies and kitten for an hour to balance the horror with wholesomeness.

Taking a slur and turning it into a word that means something different, is the ultimate way to neutralize it. Not sure naming a music Album has sufficient linguistic shaping powers, but it's worth a try. Tho, the musicians probably just chose this name hoping to harvest cancel controversy to get attention and free marketing. Despite the less than benevolent intention, it might still end up diluting the slur.

I doubt heist stories are power fantasies. I think heist stories are popular because those that made it, kicked away the ladder they used to climb to the top. So heist stories are popular because people feel powerless and the heist represents a sneaky ladder to climb to the top anyway.

None of these heist stories are realistic at all, and the fact that people are willing to suspend disbelieve anyway is a pretty good indicator how much social mobility has ossified.

Oh, yes, I agree with you completely. But to me, that just seems like a form of power fantasy. Quite a few heist movies have porn-tier shots of the gold/ cash/ precious artifact that's going to be stolen, and detail who is being stolen from and how mad they are, or how filthy rich the successful thieves have become. There's an element of "deep down we all want to do something like that", I think.

>But to me, that just seems like a form of power fantasy.
It's a matter of perspective.

A story of a powerful thief would be Robin Hood. He changes the structure of society somewhat with his activities.

From the societal perspective the typical heist stories don't change anything, they just switch out who holds the treasure. Gaining higher status is not the same as having power, making other people suffer is the display of impotence of petty tyrants that can't gather any genuine respect.

True exercise of power is reducing the internal entropy of a society.

>There's an element of "deep down we all want to do something like that", I think.

Maybe for some, for most people heist stories are probably escape fantasies, that simulate escaping from economic precarity.
>>

>>9070
>escape from economic precarity
Very few heist movies dwell on what happens after the heist, so I'd say it's more about the action of performing the heist (even in movies where the heist is more subtle, like 21) that the movie is built on, rather than the money that comes from it (money is still important, but it is only a motive)
>the powerful thief changes society
Ooh, that's a really good point. The Professor will be forgotten within a couple of years, but Robin Hood is still in the collective conscience.
But can you really put him anywhere near Money Heist? Part of the heist movie is also seeing a meticulously laid plan succeed or fail in the ways that only a movie can show us. The masks, the technology, the purpose of every movement is just as pleasing to watch as it is to hear about Robin Hood lifting people out of poverty. In this way it lets the audience project themselves not into a vault full of cash, but as a burglar trying to get in. Robin Hood is a completely different sort of story that focuses not on how he got his loot, but what he did with it.

There is a strong ideological prohibition on telling stories that show actions that lead to transformative change. If you show a protagonist that overcomes a really big obstacle, the story must end after the struggle.

For example the Movie Elysium where the protagonist storms the rich people space station, he activates the metaphorical wealth redistribution technology mechanism and then the movie ends. It doesn't show how society gets transformed.

The same goes for a heist movie it can't show how the heist actions lead to transformative change, even if it's just for a single person. The story can't show a protagonist changing their class status through events they controle.

>Part of the heist movie is also seeing a meticulously laid plan succeed or fail in the ways that only a movie can show us

That is true, there is a strong puzzle-solving aspect that is about tickling curiosity. That's the same thing as figuring out how to open a Japanese puzzle box. That part has no sociological dimension.
