Happy students and AI
« on: June 16, 2024, 07:34:49 pm »
I've just seen this in my neighborhood today:  a poster at the gate of a high school, saying "Happy students and artificial intelligence".  Whatever that means.

This reminds me of a poster from the 90s, written on an A4 paper glued on the door of a research institute I was working at at the time (ITC - Institutul de Tehnica de Calcul):  "This is the Natural Intelligence Lab, the Artificial Intelligence Lab is second door to the left".  ;D

This just looks like pure propaganda. I don't see any other purpose for such a poster. Not surprised either. :horse:

That poster I was talking on the door of the institute was from the 90's, from the "AI winter".  Understandable.  The point is, nowadays chatGPT and LLP is really a breakthrough technology.  Today, might be a little funny how this technology is completely misunderstood by the non tech people, like the ones that most probably conceive the AI add banner for that high school.

However, my opinion is the current AI/chatGPT/LLM/whatever is a turning point for humanity.  This is not propaganda.  It is a technological breakthrough (or at least that's how it seems to be from my standpoint).  This judgement is based on the fact that it's very similar, if not identical, with how a human mind works.

Just imagine you have mechanical work did by machines since industrialization age, then the Internet, then the AI that can think just think like a human, except it can read and know the whole human knowledge at once.  If that's not a turning point in human race evolution, I don't know what would be.  :)

If AI is trained for a long time on thousands of high-quality examples, tweaked very long and diligently, and endlessly improving the capabilities, it can become a great tool. I saw that https://customwriting.com/ai-essay-writer is one of them. This free essay generator was shown to me by my neighbor's schoolchildren. They say they used it many times and teachers gave it high marks every time.

Well, it's still not working quite like the human mind. I'm talking about GPT. I read that it is based on standard logical models and doesn't handle abstract reasoning very well. Whereas a person can come up with things that are not immediately obvious. Although it's certainly a breakthrough, no doubt. There are many tasks that ai successfully handles already

However, my opinion is the current AI/chatGPT/LLM/whatever is a turning point for humanity. This is not propaganda.  It is a technological breakthrough (or at least that's how it seems to be from my standpoint).
So far it's been a turning point for people committing plagiarism, fraud, political influencing, advertisement (particular in real estate) and other such areas where truthfulness isn't much of a concern.  It might become a turning point for authors of fiction and other creatives, if legal means cannot protect them.

Waters are muddled and there's a lot of money at stake, just looks at Nvidia's stock prize over the last year.

This judgement is based on the fact that it's very similar, if not identical, with how a human mind works.
*cough*, *cough*
"Deep" Neuronal Networks resemble a model of how some think (or thought) the human mind might work.  There are certainly other models (some suspect quantum mechanical effects play a role -- I would be surprised, if that wouldn't be the case).  I think it's fair to say, that we don't know how the human mind works, until we can faithfully emulate it.  So far we just realize how easily humans are fooled.

Just imagine you have mechanical work did by machines since industrialization age, then the Internet, then the AI that can think just think like a human, except it can read and know the whole human knowledge at once.  If that's not a turning point in human race evolution, I don't know what would be.  :)
That would be, but we're certainly not there and I don't expect that we'll get there in our lifetime.
