If you've played Fallout 4, this account of the first guy to beat survivor mode is fucking hilarious

 :lulz:

I haven't played yet but that's really good anyway.

Suffice to say, Preston Garvey is a dick, even when he isn't pulling a Jason Vorhees on your ass. He's nowhere near as bad as those snidey, SJW, Railroad motherfuckers, tho. Taking them out is satisfaction beyond words. I'd highly recommend it, even if the GFX engine is so out of date it's practically Manic Miner

Much f'kin closer If the VIV ecosystem matures the way I think it could, I could see us getting there pretty rapid. Think price-comparison websites but applied to AI comparison AI's, nested meta-agents selecting ranked domain expertise. The utility is guaranteed off the charts and, sooner or later, some smart arse is going to come up with a good enough personality model to wrap it up in.

Remember, this is all based on my theory that it takes significantly less than human-level intellect to fool a human into thinking it is. (like a fraction of a fraction of 1%) If I'm wrong in this then I'll revise my guess from imminent to - shortly before the heat death of the universe.  :lulz:

A while ago, I suggested making an AI that isn't trying to emulate a human being.  Fuck the Turing test.  If that's what we need, we can just squat out more humans.

Plus, it would scare the poop out of everyone with a functional arachnid response.

Totally. There's a ton of voices in the AI community who think "Human-level AGI" will be some kind of worthwhile and notable milestone. I can only attribute this obsession to hubris, all the while yelling "Why do we want to produce a simulated retard?" to anyone who'll listen.

The main lesson from all the progress in narrow AI (or, as I've taken to call it - "Actual Intelligence") is that, for all we have a seriously heavy-duty neural net, human brains are pretty much the worst fucking tool for any problem you want to solve. Turns out all you get when you scale up to 100-billion neurons is a system that can't concentrate on even the simplest task for longer than a couple of nanoseconds. Scale it back to a couple of million, however and it can actually drive a car without killing everyone in the vehicle cos it wanted to check Facebook. :lulz:

I've just realised that my general attitude toward humanity kida fits with the cat in the box, if we survive as a species I'll be glad we finally, collectively wised up and managed to crawl out the stinking hole of stupidity that is our gravity well. On the other hand, if we successfully extinct ourselves, I'll be thankful for the oceans of stupid screaming monkey faces I get to laugh in while we burn.

Compassion? Nope - given that up as a played out old joke that wan't really that funny to begin with. Now I'm all about popcorn and human suffering.

I'd send him mine but for some reason all the pages are mysteriously stuck together  :evil:

I love how the one on the right actually manages to cross dinopr0n with midgetpr0n  :lulz:

The bit that got me was the - wavelength longer than the observable universe - part. It's like a loophole in the laws of physics  :eek: 8) :evil:

There are no loopholes in physics.  Just weirder phenomena than we specified when we placed the order.


Just a friendly reminder from the universe that our version of the rulebook is not yet comprehensive. 8)

Never underestimate the programmability of human beings. Most of them seem to actually prefer it to thinking. Homosapiens huge fucking brain has high energy requirements. Maybe natural selection is biased in favour of those who only use it for emergencies?  :lulz:

You could also quite reasonably question what credentials the man actually has to hold the office that he does.

Credentials? I'd figured the only credentials you need to hold any office is having fucked the right pig?

It really is a challenge to talk about "my personal path to being a less shitty me" without disparaging the shittier version of yourself, and by extension the shittier versions of people you see around you.

Excellent point. I am guilty of this although, hopefully, less so than in the past. I try to remove the value judgement from the equation and especially any anger this value judgement may cause. Hard to do sometimes but I have to remind myself that it isn't the other persons fault that they're trapped inside a pernicious reality tunnel, choking on dumb memes and sneezing bad signal. Personality can become infected just the same as biological machinery.

If you wouldn't blame someone because they were infected with aids, why is it okay to blame them because they're infected with Ayn Rand or Adolph Hitler? People are just dumb apes (me too) it's not really their fault.

Also - holding other people up to ANY standard is a hiding to nowhere. Best you can hope for is to live up to your own standards
