DEATH TO AMERICA
:xickos:

The idea of 'a machine that thinks' dates back to ancient Greece. But since the advent of electronic computing (and relative to some of the topics discussed in this article) important events and milestones in the evolution of artificial intelligence include the following:

1950:†Alan Turing publishes†Computing Machinery and Intelligence.†In the paper, Turingófamous for breaking the Nazi's ENIGMA code during WWIIóproposes to answer the question 'can machines think?' and introduces the Turing Test to determine if a computer can demonstrate the same intelligence (or the results of the same intelligence) as a human. The value of the Turing test has been debated ever since.

1956:†John McCarthy coins the term 'artificial intelligence' at the first-ever AI conference at Dartmouth College. (McCarthy would go on to invent the Lisp language.) Later that year, Allen Newell, J.C. Shaw, and Herbert Simon create the Logic Theorist, the first-ever running AI software program.

1967:†Frank Rosenblatt builds the Mark 1 Perceptron, the first computer based on a neural network that 'learned' though trial and error. Just a year later, Marvin Minsky and Seymour Papert publish a book titled†Perceptrons, which becomes both the landmark work on neural networks and, at least for a while, an argument against future neural network research projects.

1980s:†Neural networks which use a backpropagation algorithm to train itself become widely used in AI applications.

1997:†IBM's Deep Blue beats then world chess champion Garry Kasparov, in a chess match (and rematch).

2011:†IBM Watson beats champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter at†Jeopardy!

2015:†Baidu's Minwa supercomputer uses a special kind of deep neural network called a convolutional neural network to identify and categorize images with a higher rate of accuracy than the average human.

2016:†DeepMind's AlphaGo program, powered by a deep neural network, beats Lee Sodol, the world champion Go player, in a five-game match. The victory is significant given the huge number of possible moves as the game progresses (over 14.5 trillion after just four moves!). Later, Google purchased DeepMind for a reported USD 400 million.

not sure this is quite the correct standard. a thing like chatgpt inference is on one level extremely trivial in what it does; there's a set sequence of of roughly half a trillion arithmetic operations applied to the input, you are free to ask about any one of them.

rather one would need tools to tell it to do things and and a reasonable assurance that it'll do something like the instructions, and not something else.

e: one might of course want an explanation of where all the constants come from, but i've for practical reasons taken to acting like the models are things that fell from space and all we can do is analyze them. to some extent cynical, since economic and other practical constraints make large models work out that way, and likely will for the foreseeable future.

I did see some people mention it helps them with social anxiety, which I could see.

Then there's the psychos who share ways to simulate emotional abuse on them...

its very tedious to have to explain this to people irl because they're always like "yeah people have always been afraid of automation, they'll just find other jobs" and they dont really have the desire, patience or background to understand the difference beween, say, robot welders on a car assembly line and a general-purpose AI.

its crazy to me that people get so defensive and hostile about the little app they like, where they can type in 'elon musk eating a hamburger at the bar from cheers', and in return get a blurry picture that vaguely resembles elon musk eating a hamburger at the bar from cheers, that the concept of 'art' itself is a culture war shibboleth to them now.

although i suppose these people wouldnt have cared about art, on other merits, before this, either.

Yeah, the irony of a programmer gloating that artists' jobs are going to be taken from them by an AI trained on their pre-existing work is :discourse:

for how long tho? I donít mean this in a disparaging way, but AI is advancing relatively quickly, seems that whatever we think about it now will definitely be wrong in ten years. itís an arms race and there are huge savings to be made replacing people with computers :(

we canít really stop progress, the horse is out the gate and itís a matter of when not if, and overall I think itís a sadder state of affairs for humans, even if it brings some benefits. welp
