definitely. when we got our most recent TV we accidentally tipped the box over and it landed on its side with an extremely loud whack. put it back upright and finished unpacking and it's fine. and that's probably not even the most violent thing that happened to it across the logistics chain

looked it up and there are a couple of large parks at the rear end end of brooklyn where you can fly RC aircraft, you can probably fly a drone there. but anything interesting to fly it around would just be a dot on the horizon

it's way better than it has any right to be as a reboot of a beloved decade-old franchise

the main character is a bit of a Cool Badass but since you choose his dialog he doesn't have to be an rear end in a top hat about it

that line is probably the most notorious meme from the game

the ADS-B Exchange community aircraft tracking site, best known as the primary data source for the @ElonJet twitter account, was just sold to private equity

it's all built on data submitted by hobbyists who automated detecting aircraft transponders in their vicinity, so hopefully they all switch to feeding a new community project that isn't owned by capitalists who will happily censor the planes of anyone who asks, but it's probably dead now

Mr Devereaux here states outright that statistical relationships between words are fundamentally different than knowledge, which is sort of a stupid thing to assume. I "know" harry potter rides a magic broom, despite my only experience with harry potter and his magic broom is because they were arranged in a certain way on the pages of a book, how is that not knowledge if chatgpt can both know and communicate about the same thing by also just knowing relationships between words.

his point is that when you read harry potter you associated the concepts of wizard and broom while chatgpt just associated the words "wizard" and "broom". to chatgpt they are not symbols, they are atomic elements that tend to occur in certain arrangements. if I wrote that harry is a hgkjrhasful who rides an ahjwtqy, a human reader would immediately choke on it, at the very least because those terms are not defined elsewhere in the work and more likely because it's obvious I'm just banging on the keyboard. the statistical model underlying chatgpt cannot reject inputs on this sort of basis and that's a difference between the kinds of information processing it and real students do according to this piece. it will happily internalize the garbage and write you a whole new story about the magical adventures the hgkjrhasfuls have with their ahjwtqys even if neither of those are defined anywhere in the entire text of Harry Potter and the Ffgadjghkan Jcoqsklhabdfkjczkns

quote:

He also states that an essay is, of his own definition, certain steps to create as an essay, so therefore gpt cannot create essays because it didn't do the legwork he prescribed. Which is garbage. You can fart out a good essay about a subject without going through his steps, and if you want to say "your prior knowledge of the effects of furry culture on the mascot suit industry maps to the same steps" then you can make the same argument about chatgpt's training and modeling and synthesis steps mapping just as easily.

you cannot in fact fart out a good essay by doing that, one that will pass diligent inspection by a human familiar with the subject. chatgpt is just better and faster at farting out bad essays that will pass quick inspection by humans less familiar with the subject. so much better and so much faster that it's disruptive even though it's not producing anything of real value

quote:

There's a much better argument to be made that the purpose of his class and his college in general is to teach students how to learn and think and synthesize new ideas, but that doesn't actually result in the conclusion "so obviously there's no place for language models in that process". If chatgpt's essays didn't suck, they would be an invaluable resource for learning about a subject and its related fields, and as a source for your own process of synthesizing ideas and trying to communicate them.

I think he does make that point? He talks about how the actual text isn't what's important to the learning process, it's just evidence that the student performed the research and thinking they were supposed to. in which case chatgpt is absolutely a counterproductive shortcut with no place in the process

kinda surprised chinese rooms haven't come up more in chatgpt discourse. that's basically what the language model is, a huge collection of relationships between opaque symbols. is comprehension an emergent property of a sufficiently large collection of such things? I don't think there is a clear or even widely accepted answer to that, but at any rate chatgpt isn't sufficiently advanced to be in that grey area (yet)

point is also made in the top comment on that article:

ChatGPT can pass the canonical Winograd schema because it has heard the answer before. If you do a novel one, it fails. Someone posted a new one on Mastodon "The ball broke the table because it was made of steel/Styrofoam." In my test just now, it chooses ball both times.
