    Bloviator: OpenAI’s language generator has no idea what it’s talking about


    "Is GPT-3 an important step toward artificial general intelligence—the kind that would allow a machine to reason broadly in a manner similar to humans without having to train for every specific task it encounters? OpenAI’s technical paper is fairly reserved on this larger question, but to many, the sheer fluency of the system feels as though it might be a significant advance."

    "We doubt it. At first glance, GPT-3 seems to have an impressive ability to produce human-like text. And we don't doubt that it can used to produce entertaining surrealist fiction; other commercial applications may emerge as well. But accuracy is not its strong point. If you dig deeper, you discover that something’s amiss: although its output is grammatical, and even impressively idiomatic, its comprehension of the world is often seriously off, which means you can never really trust what it says."

    "Before proceeding, it’s also worth noting that OpenAI has thus far not allowed us research access to GPT-3, despite both the company’s name and the nonprofit status of its oversight organization. Instead, OpenAI put us off indefinitely despite repeated requests—even as it made access widely available to the media. Fortunately, our colleague Douglas Summers-Stay, who had access, generously offered to run the experiments for us."


    Just more Musk hype then?

    Wake me up when deep-code is a thing.
  1.  
    I personally experienced the problem in my first attempt to create an intelligent system (1974 ish). The realisation hit me like a ton of bricks. It's all well and good to create a machine with a decent strategy in this or that domain, but it's quite another thing for the machine to realise that it is a machine being taught to learn strategies in a domain. It's a prodigious leap to any sort of awareness.

    Anyone who's practised meditation knows how hard this is.

    A proof is strange, though. It’s abstract and untethered to material experience. “They’re this crazy contact between an imaginary, nonphysical world and biologically evolved creatures,” said the cognitive scientist Simon DeDeo of Carnegie Mellon University, who studies mathematical certainty by analyzing the structure of proofs. “We did not evolve to do this.”

    No. It's a spandrel.

    My understanding is that Musk has been hands-off with OpenAI for some years now.

    Can this https://youtu.be/LJ25-U3jNWM?list=RDLJ25-U3jNWM be upscaled to 4k?

    Would like to see and have digital idiot savants having a have at that.

    So all we need to do is ask it to code a better version of itself. Easy!

    Work me up when your AI can do my laundry, wash my dishes and guess my wishes. (worst of moletrap application)
