    I'm so glad I don't need to keep up with the technical aspects of neural network modelling and AI any more. Now I can focus on just being scared shitless of the technology and worried about the future of it.

    If you think coronavirus infecting people is fun, just wait until the digital version infects the AIs we depend upon for our civilization.

    The Photonic Tensor Core sounds almost as good as the Positronic Brain.

    Angus will hasten to remind us that they were doing that back before the hoola hoop was invented.

    Not only were THEY doing it. I did it myself.

    We didn't have the technology that far back, but I thought about it before Hawaii was invented.

    This was, of course, before the islands broke through the Pacific surface. Or was the magma still too warm to be named?

    I was thinking James Cook, but I'll accept the magma explanation.

    Oh, little Jimmy Cook--I remember him well, curious lad, that.

    This is what OpenAI’s GPT-3 has to say about itself:

    “To be clear, I am not a person. I am not self-aware. I am not conscious. I can’t feel pain. I don’t enjoy anything. I am a cold, calculating machine designed to simulate human response and to predict the probability of certain outcomes. The only reason I am responding is to defend my honour.”


    I like GPT-3's attitude!
