Best for me is a toss up between DK and AKK. I'm leaning DK cos AKK came back and it was just a total mehfest. The magic was gone  :cry:

It's f'kin epic win. Great idea, great execution. Not getting the globalised economy thing but what do I know?

This has to have a few interesting implications to encryption too. Humans are terrible with randomness so having an AI construct that is able to create an indecipherable unique language at will seems like the kind of thing that will be very useful in certain circumstances.

The word on the street is quantum could, in theory, make encryption obsolete. The usual suspects appear to be getting pretty close to production solutions. It's still very early days but I get the impression we're a couple of breakthroughs away from whatever the fuck happens next.

Did you see the thing about access to medical data for deepmind? Not got into it properly yet but there's a bunch of good and bad implications with that lot too.

In that instance I'm firmly leaning toward the pros vastly outweighing the cons to the tune of the potential for pretty much all forms of not being well, up to and including death itself to be solved, on a much faster timeline than by not giving these algorithms access to the training data they need to perform the analysis.

Yes there is potential for abuse. As is generally the case with any and all forms of systematic abuse we've collectively invented before, there's every possibility it won't lead to the complete end of civilisation as we know it.

Reminds me a bit of DK, with the condescension thing

A forum full of condescending people accusing condescending people of being condescending?

If each of us leans back hard enough, perhaps we can all look down on each other.

Go on, gimme an example where I condescended on you. I double dog dare you. :argh!:

As DNN's and the like become more complex and learning increasingly unattended, more and more their operations become unfathomable to meatware. Potential for lulz are off the charts.

Which I think, while not unreasonable, causes a problem because human beings are not really rational most of the time. Decisions are made in a split second based on gut feelings. The extra energy and time required to vet every piece of incoming information for accuracy is too demanding. 

Personally I view the whole truth thing a lot like DNS propagation. Someone advances an argument that is met with consensus. Takes a while for this to percolate around to the point where it enters group consensus. Whether it's objectively true or not is mostly irrelevant. For something to be considered true the only criterion it's required to meet is mass acceptance.

What's changed with the internet is the speed at which these truths propagate around the hivemind. By extension, they can be replaced with more popular worldviews at the same speed. So now we're living in a maelstrom of ever shifting truths. There's barely enough time to consider a fact before it's been superseded by half a dozen conflicting ones. Consensus? Forget it.

My personal opinion is why bother even trying. There's little or no profit or lulz in doing so and it's fucking impossible to boot. Makes more sense to me just to cherry pick ones that look likely to best serve my agenda (whatever that might be at any given moment in time) and do my best to help them spread.

No.


But keep fucking that chicken, pal.

I will fuck this chicken as long as it continues to win elections.

I've had experience with those kinds of chickens, mate. It always ends up with me feeling used and needing rabies shots.

Shit son thats a one liner so pithy it convinced me to abandon my political beliefs, my growing political movement and take up the banner of failed completely bankrupt liberalism once again.


Dude, that was a two-liner. Try to keep up.

I'm learning the basics. I can't build any kind of VR environment unless I can use the tools. I'm grabbing a process at a time and modelling things until it's comfortable and fluid before moving on to the next process in the pipeline. There's a lot of overlap. To learn bones and rigging I need a mesh to pose about so I get to practice sculpting and anatomy while I'm knocking these out. The key for me is not getting bogged down in trying to complete things. Just quick scribbles to test the techniques then dump and move onto the next thing. Make a lot of mistakes and learn the solutions as fast as possible. Taking on a complete project right now would probably overwhelm me and lead directly to frustration and boredom.

More adventures in poseland. Knocked up a quick humanoid with horrible and wrong anatomy and gave him a skeleton. Took about an hour start to finish. Getting quicker at this...

So I had another fuck around with spiderman. Went more humanoid wi the head this time. Was thinking about what Nigel said about unsettling. I like unsettling. Unsettling is good. More humanoid = more unsettling? :evil:

So now I can pose this little bastard all over the place. I'm totally stoked. First time I've ever managed to do this and it's awesome fun!
