Google's New AI Has Learned to Become "Highly Aggressive" in Stressful Situations
http://www.sciencealert.com/google-s-new-ai-has-learned-to-become-highly-aggressive-in-stressful-situations

I'm immediately struck by the sensational science reporting - you could tell this story in a lot of ways but they choose to go with the doomsday terminator apocalypse language again because that's the only pop-culture narrative for AI.

The real problem with the Terminator narrative is hat the AI angle is ultimately incidental to it. Crazy generals have been staging military coups and oppressing the fuck out of people since the dawn of recorded history.

Exactly this. There are very few (if any) arguments against any technological innovation that don't boil down, upon closer inspection, to an argument against talking primates. However, talking primates are renowned for their complete lack of accountability, so we are required by law to find some other root cause to blame. It's the old - guns don't kill people - conundrum.

Bang on the money, re journalists anthropomorphising. If you feed an ML system a zero sum game it'll find an optimal win condition. As soon as it outperforms humans, it'll freak them the fuck out and they'll start doing the anthropomorphism thing. Everything else is just potential for profit and lulz. I've been saying it for ages now - the Turing test will absolutely be passed, to the satisfaction of most of the human race, pretty soon now, by a machine that's no more conscious than a commodore Amiga was.

We'll be projecting human-level consciousness and personality and emotions onto machines a long time before they ever get close, because acting human is something ML will acquire no bother and, as with everything else, they'll quickly learn to do it with superhuman ability. They'll still be inanimate objects but it won't matter, they'll be better than us at giving the appearance of being us and we are biologically programmed to accept things that appear human as being human.

The rules of marketing dictate that whosoever deploys a cloud AI that most people fall head over heels in love with upon first use will reap profits most epic. Imagine sales kiosks that can gauge a customer's non-verbal reactions perfectly in realtime and adjust tact to suit. You will always supersize for fear of disappointing the checkout.

I mentioned to my girlfriend about infiltrating the training and seminar portion of the neo-nazi hate fest and she gave me a grave look, so I think that part is a no go for me (and because I'm slightly intimidated to be isolated with actual factual skinheads).
However! I do appreciate your other kind suggestions! I've made signs before, and I've waved them and shouted at people while holding them, but I've never really thought about the anatomy of a sign or what makes one catchy, so your thoughts are very helpful!  :)

So I guess the next logical question is, obviously, given that there is a neo-nazi gathering within reasonable travel distance, and given the recent uproar with punching Richard Spencer, is it ok to punch nazis?

It's sort of a moral imperative.

If you are not the punchy type, find some other way to make them miserable.

Stabbing is much more effective. They become noticably less nazi with every pint of blood they lose, right up until you hit that sweet spot where they're totally cured

EDIT:
Another, less related issue is that both sides push black-and-white thinking. The left acts as if there is no middle ground between respect and hatred, and the right would have you believe that the only alternatives to lassiez-faire capitalism are Stalinism and juche

This isn't an issue, it's a feature. If either side was composed of rational, sane individuals civilisation in general would be way less of a hilarious clusterfuck of a thing.

Aneristic Illusions / Re: General Trump hilarity free-for-all thread

If trump is as dumb as he makes out then he's being manipulated by smart and powerful people, just like all his predecessors before him, right back to the guy that was rifle-voted out of office for refusing to be manipulated. If he's not then he's a fucking genius actor doing the best full retard since Sean Penn and he's probably about to receive the rifle-vote or something equally media-compelling.

The only thing that's crystal clear to me is the US overwhelmingly voted a guy who can't talk coherently, because of mental impediment rather than speech, to be in charge of the country. Any sensible person in Putin's position right now (which Putin very is), would pretty much just asset-strip the entire landmass and sell the valuable stuff to the Chinese and anyone else who figured out years ago that this US petrodollar thing was on a shaky as fuck nail.

The CinC of the largest stockpile of all the fucking things on earth is slappy the clown and the narrative is that any decision this motherfucker makes is gospel. Personally I never bought that narrative. Struck me as the kind of story smart people would tell dumbfucks so they'd shut the fuck up and do what they were told but, just for sake of argument, let's say it's true. Holy shit, we better secure our borders against US refugees. It's going to look like the set of Mad Max there in a couple of years time. Personally, if I was a murrican and I could spell my own name, I'd be getting the fuck out while my passport still worked. :lulz:

moar doodling on the general theme of artistic license as an excuse for shoddy anatomy. Carving out a niche for myself here. My sculpts have so much anatomy. The best anatomy. Ignore those liberal media anatomy books, they publish fake anatomy. I'ma build a model and make Loomis pay for it.

And yes, his results reinforced his pre-existing biases. Congratulations, you got the main point of the article.

Those results were the only results he would have accepted. Congratulations, main point of the article missed your scalp by a good couple of feet.

Guys, people seriously think Lady Gaga is a Satanist and a member of the Illuminati. 

Of course they do, they're people. Fuckers will believe any shit.

Ta! :)

Anatomy practice tonight. No references. Testing my memory. Heads getting tighter every time I do one. Feel like I'm on the home straight. Torsos still have a long way to go but more of it is making sense as time goes on.

Sounds like a useless lazy fuck of a person. To Wallmart, there's shelves to be stacked! :evil:

Stick with it. Hacking has a ridiculously steep learning curve but the most important lesson you will ever learn is how to google the code snippet you're trying to write :lulz:

The line between cognitive dissonance and eureka is infinitesimal but it can still be a big step to cross.

You want to get rid of targetted search results, I'll fight it all the way. I remember how long I used to spend on google wading through pages upon pages of bullshit that had nothing to do with my query, just because a couple of words were the same. Fuck that noise.

Have a think about this

Roof’s radicalization began, as he later wrote in an online manifesto, when he typed the words “black on White crime” into Google and found what he described as “pages upon pages of these brutal black on White murders.”

So before he even looked at google he was interested in "Black on white crime" The problem here is not google doing what it's for and searching the internet on a user's behalf. That's just a f'kin scapegoat. Why is a 20 year old redneck typing "black on white crime" into a search engine in the first place? Pretty sure the real problem lies at the bottom of that particular rabbit hole. Why did "Council of Conservative Citizens" score so high on pagerank? That's somewhere else to have a dig. An indexing service that scans a trillion pages a second and takes me straight to the information I want to find? Yeah, do me a favour and leave that shit the fuck alone.
