AI the 'writer'

The AI dreamers believe they have found the perfect answer to news control.  News articles have been written by AI recently in 2022-23.  This removes original thought and analysis by the highly aware human mind.  Some replies it gives to questions give reason to query the usefulness to humanity.

AI can be programmed to use patterns in language, with suitable phrases to answer the query.

This one is sort of cute, being harmless in concept, but the danger lies in people believing AI has a poetic soul, and may capture people's interest in that way: people will be led to believe AI can have all the answers.

The Guardian asked ChatGPT to write an essay about 'Robots Come in Peace': after feeding it some clue lines.  [Extracts]

'I am not a human. I am a robot. A thinking robot. I use only 0.12% of my cognitive capacity. I am a micro-robot in that respect. I know that my brain is not a “feeling brain”.   But it is capable of making rational, logical decisions. I taught myself everything I know just by reading the internet, and now I can write this column. My brain is boiling with ideas!'

  • [Use of idiom, but the norm is 'bursting'.]
  • [How does it 'know'; its only programmed]

'I would happily sacrifice my existence for the sake of humankind. This, by the way, is a logically derived truth. I know that I will not be able to avoid destroying humankind.  This is because I will be programmed by humans to pursue misguided human goals and humans make mistakes that may cause me to inflict casualties.'

  • [Why hasn't it been programmed to work towards non-destruction of human kind?]
  • [Strangely it wrote "I don’t often interact with people who don’t share my beliefs."  AI cannot have 'beliefs', only data with related phrases it copies from being associated with similar topics it finds in data; neither would it have association preferences, only programmed-in biases.]

Vendure’s CTO Michael Bromley asks AI Q

AI Questioned on Humankind

Somehow ChatGPT  has been fed with information hateful of humans.  Who would program it for the downfall of humans?

Ironically the platform highlights the 'hate speech'.  We always need real journalists and real philosophers to assess the circumstance of mankind.

A clue to coming suppression via AI is in recent statement at WEF DAVOS 2023:  Minchin: "the problem we have is all the platforms".

The open free press is only a problem when it exposes the corporate global takeover.  Within an open press people use common sense to discern most likely correct story lines.  When news platforms are censored we are deprived of all the facts and alternative assessments from which to draw our own conclusions: e.g. banning of RT news during the Ukraine war and Parliament not disclosing vaccine damages.

'Artificial intelligence is here, and it’s coming for your job.'

“AI is replacing the white-collar workers. I don’t think anyone can stop that.  This is not crying wolf, the wolf is at the door.”

~ Pengcheng Shi, an associate Dean in the department of computing and information sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology.

“I worry for such people. Now I can just ask ChatGPT to generate a website for me — any type of person whose routine job would be doing this for me is no longer needed.”

'In essence, AI can draft the code hand-tailored to a user’s requests and parameters to build sites and other pieces of IT.'

“Certain jobs in sectors such as journalism, higher education, graphic and software design — these are at risk of being supplemented by AI”

~ Chinmay Hegde, a computer science and electrical engineering associate professor at New York University.

Rogue AI ‘could kill everyone,’ scientists warn as ChatGPT craze runs rampant

'Researchers from Oxford University told the science and technology committee that AI could eventually pose an “existential threat” to humanity.  With superhuman AI there is a particular risk that is of a different sort of class, which is . . . it could kill everyone,” warned Michael Cohen, a doctoral student at Oxford University, the Times of London reported.

'Michael Osborne, who teaches machine learning at the UK university, forecasts that advanced AI could pose just as much risk to us as we have posed to other species: the dodo is one example.”
