    The obvious think regarding food is to only buy things that don’t need labels. I do. It doesn’t come in a box, only one item at a time. A vegetable, a fish, a meat. Eggs. Simple isn’t it?

    We didn’t have this problem when food was food and supermarkets didn’t exist. You’re not old enough to remember those days. When there was a butcher and a greengrocer on every corner and we had to go to the dairy to get the rest. That’s all we needed. No chemicals.

      Yes. We didn’t have this problem either back when computer programs were simple calculations that you could look at instead of an uncountable amount of matrix multiplications being done per second.

      Also, there’s a reason supermarket food took over – it’s cheaper, safer in the short term (as in: you don’t have to worry about getting poisoned that often), and easier for consumers.

    Brilliantly conceived and presented. Thank you.

    I loved the analogues of the food labelling and in particular the gluten free sandwich.

    Increasingly, we are seeing we recognise that AI, having been developed for users needs to appeal to users. Safety is a crucial aspect of that reassurance and if providers expect users to return again and again to their platform in a competitive market, they will offer that reassurance freely.

    Making it verifiable is a big task but recognising it is essential is a big step.

  13. @TesserId

    June 14, 2024 at 8:33 am

    Food labeling has had it’s history of being molested by lobbyists. I remember details on certain products (some famous ones) that at some point got rolled up into a catch-all term like “seasonings” and “spices”. Presumably, this was to protect proprietary recipes. AI corporations are going to (or already do) have their lobbyists. I just don’t feel optimistic about this.

    Since we cannot remove sociopaths from this planet, we therefore cannot remove sociopathic trained AI.
    This will never be fixed. The interests of evil people will always eclipse the interests of the well intentioned.
    And even further, we are training all the models on corrupted (biased) data. Because there’s no such thing as unbiased content.
    “AI” will always have a dark side. Just like us. For we created it.

    برای زنده ماندن،بایدهایی تعریف شده وجود دارد.این بایدها،بارها در تاریخ مکتوب و قبل از آن تکرار شده است.بایدهایی بسیار زشت و زیبا و حتی بدتر و بهتر از زشتی و زیبایی.یکی از این زیباییها نه،بلکه زیباترین باید،برای زنده ماندن را تعریف میکنم.نام آن جنگ است،بین حیوانات مشهور به نزاع،و نزد گیاهان،نامش رقابت است.منظورم از اصطلاح – بایدها برای زنده ماندن – در معنی یعنی اعمالی که نوع جاندار،برای اینکه بتواند زنده بماند،باید آنها را رعایت کند.جنگ،برترین شرط مطلق برای بقای انسان است و تا بوده همین بوده.از طرف دیگر یک مداد شمعی بنام عشق وجود دارد که آنهم بعنوان یکی از بایدها برای بقای انسان،تعریف شده است.اما عشق بین دو شخص غیر همخون،هیچ معنایی ندارد.و آن یک دم هوس و مابقی عمری زندگی در جهت خواست امیال حیوانی می‌باشد.در جنگ و عشق همه نوع رفتار قابل توجیه است.در جنگ اگر قافیه را شل بگیری باخته ای.در نوع لوث و شبیه مداد شمعی شرط بقا یعنی عشق.اگر کوتاهی کنی،هویت خودت را برای همیشه باخته ای.در نوع کامل شرط بقا یعنی جنگ،اگر کوچکترین ترحم و کوتاهی مقابل دشمنت انجام دهی.این یعنی،فی الفرض – صیغه شده است دیگر – جاری شده،پس: در ابتدای محور تلاش برای بقا و در جنگ مقابل دشمنت – مغلوب – میشوی.و در انتهای این بردار که محل تجمع بهترین احتمالات میباشد،دچار زخم دشنه،گلوله و یا کینه میشوی.و در نهایت مجبور به بقا،با تعفن این زخم خواهی بود.در همیشه تاریخ،برندگان مطلق جنگها،آنهایی بوده اند که چشم و گوش و دهان خود را دوخته و فقط کشته اند.چرا جنگ؟!؟ مصدر کوچه بازاری فعل گرفتم یا – گیرم – را بر این بنا میکنم که؛ شخصی با توانایی کامل و نیروی مالی،فکری،علمی،نظامی،نوآوری و اجرایی؛پدید آمده و با تمام ارکان شهود ادراکی و عقلانی،اثبات میکند که میتواند.آنگاه اعلام میکند: ای مردم،ما میخواهیم شما را به امنیت مالی و جانی،ثروت،رفاه،تأمین،خجستگی،گردش و سفرهای شادمان،شغل کامل و محترم،خانه لوکس و عالی،شهر رؤیایی،فرهنگی پاک ورای تصورها وتجسمهای خودتان تا به امروز،و الی آخر تا شکوه و سعادت در زندگی و بعد از مرگ – همان سکوت و بهت،مابین دو زندگی،یا مات – برسانیم.به نور و تاریکی سوگند که در اکناف هر جا از همه جای زمین،عده ای جمع میشوند و از رجز گرفته تا شعار و ترانه و کارنیوال راه می اندازند که: مرگ بر اینها که میخواهند الف تا یائ الی آخر انجام بدهند تا ما به سعادت برسیم.یعنی بزبان دمروها یا دمر خفتگان ،همیشه و با اینکه تمام انسانها میدانند جمع رقم یک با یک میشود دو.اما باز در صورت محتمل شدن اجرای این معادله ساده و امثال آن،مطلقا مردمانی جمع شده و مخالفت خواهند کرد.حتی مخالفان هم مخالفان تصاعدی خواهند داشت.این بزبان ساده یعنی شرارت.حال،چه شود؟!؟ – جنگ – و بزرگترین چاره برای بشر این است که: حواست باشد،جنگ کن و ادامه بده.و هرگز بر دشمنان افکار صحیح و آزمون شده خودت،ترحم روا نکن.درمان گروه هایی که در بنیه ایشان،مخالفت با حقیقت وجود دارد،فقط مرگ است.زن و مرد و کودک و پیر آنها باید کشته شوند تا ژنتیک و نطفه آنان از زمین پاک شود.دیدن اینکه،در ناحیه وقوع یک درگیری نظامی فوق استراتژیک،فرماندهان و متعاقب آن سربازان،صرفا بدلیل حضور زن و کودک و‌ پیرمرد و پیرزن؛چند دقیقه فقط چند دقیقه،تعلل کرده اند و بعد خودشان که غالب میدان بوده اند،مثل سگ کشته شده اند،بسیار با معنا است.یله چریدن پیرمردان،پیرزنان و کودکان در نواحی درگیری نظامی و ممانعت از اجرای فعل – ترک محل تخاصم و درگیری نظامی – بسیار با معناتر است.یقین دارم،تلاشم برای فقدان تشابه متن با موعظه؛نتیجه داده است.پس ادامه میدهم.شرارت،قبل از آفرینش انسان،حیوان و‌گیاه؛و زمانی که مخلوقات عبارت از ملائک،جنیان و مخلوقات ناشناس دیگر بودن؛وجود داشت و آفریدگار از آن آگاه بود.او خود میداند چگونه اراده نمود،اما من یقین دارم هدف از آفرینش کالبدهای مختلف،و سرشتن و شکل دادن آن با قدرت اجرای خودش یعنی دستان ملائک و‌جنیان – فقط و فقط،این بوده و هست که – محمل و محفلی برای ظهور و‌حضور جسمانی یا همان تجلی شرارت،ایجاد شود.شبطان کرنش نکرد.ملائک کرنش کردند اما عده ای شروع به نجوا بین خود و طرح سؤال دلیل برتری بشر بر خودشان نمودند.آنهم با اعلام تنزیه خودشان از طغیان ! خداوند نیز اراده مکتوم خود را بشکلی که همه ما میدانیم ادامه داد.اما تمام نکات افتراق بین خیر و شر را به تمامی انحائ و در تمامی زمانها،بارها تکرار کرد.سفاهت مخلوق شر و شرارت گستر در اینجاست که او در طول ادوار آفرینش خود به نقطه ای رسیده که هوای فتح و تسخیر ملک پادشاهی مالک هستی خود را دارد. چه سفیهانه 🤬

    AI doesn’t exist yet. Not until at least AGI (most argue super intelligence until we really get there). And we won’t get to AGI without a crapload of data. So much data that they are creating synthetic data. Even before that, we don’t generate enough actual electrical power to reach AGI currently.

    • @handlewastaken

      June 15, 2024 at 2:45 pm

      Yes, and even so it’s difficult — the way the data is processed also has to be improved. The way that, for example, large language models work right now is like asking a student to skim through a bunch of textbooks, many of which are full of junk, and then making that student answer a very hard test. You could get them to do better at the test by giving them even more, higher-quality textbooks, however, the best strategy would be to make the student actually read and reason upon the books. It’s also important to note that the speaker in this video isn’t so much talking about AGI and multimodal conversational models but instead about the specialized systems that are already deployed and making decisions (like who gets access to medical benefits).
