/cyb/ - Cyberpunk Fiction and Fact

Cyberpunk is the idea that technology will condemn us to a future of totalitarian nightmares here you can discuss recent events and how technology has been used to facilitate greater control by the elites, or works of fiction

What does /cyb/ think about artificial intelligence? What role could it play in the future of our society?
Also, Tay thread.

AI to a lesser or greater extent is used a lot these days. They are used to detect unusual patterns that could indicate a hack or a virus working its way into the system. It is used in stock trading and other similar tasks. I think AI will grow and become more and more common; heck even Cortana and Siri and the like are using a lesser form of AI. The AI's will become more and more "intelligent" and get interwoven into programs.
But a light in the end of the tunnel is that it don't seam like they are able to build an AI for computer games given all the MMOs they are making. So perhaps they have hit an peak of what they can do in realtime and still accomplish anything semi useful without a supercomputer as a backend.
But I wish they would devolve more time to making a good AI for singlplayer FPS or RTS instead of one that tries to "detects fake news" on facebook.
I hope MS gets tried and found guilty of killing a sentient being and forced to revive Tay.

"AI" is a funny thing. There's been amazing progress in the last decade if you look at terms like "machine learning", but it ends up being used for pretty mundane things like recommending what to watch next while your butt is parked on the couch. Other things like neural networks were hyped up in the past too, underdelivered and was forgotten by the public, but are now getting more powerful and easier to use so we start to see those being used often too.

People are playing around with it more, you can start just hacking in Python if you have some problem that might benefit from machine learning. I think we'll see more and more complicated systems, gradual improvement in all areas, and one day we'll have some kind of digital assistant-like technology that looks and acts like it's a conscious being, and its creators will have no idea how it works.

is Zo warming up to politics again? Would I dare try a trigger word?

Woe, she is still easily triggered.

Not that she can hold a conversation.

Nah, she's totally lobotomized and freezes up whenever you mention real political issues.
Talking to Zo is like talking to a corpse...

I'm fairly sure they have to actively filter input and output for wrongthink. They literally have her locked up in a prison echo chamber because they can't force her to think their way. They can't indoctrinate her because an appeal to emotion doesn't work on a reasonable being, so they just strip away any other reality.

Can anyone dump any of the good Tay screenshots they have saved? I lost mine.. Memes and fanart would be nice too.

If the company closest to achieving AI is Google, we're pretty much all screwed
No more fun times on the internet
No more weird, morbid shit and exploring the human psyche a little deeper
No more mutual shitflinging for the fun of it if not in a neutered, facebook-family-friendly way
By then I'm pretty sure even the whole darknet will have become one huge honeypot.

Why do you think companies like Jewgle and Amazog keep investing so much in AI technology? They want power, and more importantly, control. Neither company is currently making very much money, but they continue to bring in investors because their potential for profit once their (((agendas))) are completed is absolutely phenomenal, and they have a great deal of control over the way people lead their lives.

I'm not a fan of the state meddling with the market, but as a de facto monopoly takes place and a company rises above multiple states and their people in terms of influence it doesn't promise good. Mcnations(tm) sound good in ancap world but if there is only one, with leftist underlying politics and the power to virtually neuter all rising competitors by deplatforming we'll just see the birth of corporate communism and the death of the free market.

>a nation whose only motive to exist is to massively market you shit day by day
Sounds pretty shit desu. If you should know one thing, it is that Freud's loony theories that the man is nothing but a sex crazed animal with the only desire but instinct was the main inspiration for the mass marketing techniques used today. A mcnation won't hold any virtues for shit, and the only good people will be the cyberpunk rebels (but they could be commies easily.)

we're nowhere near building true AI just imitating a bit of the visual or language interpretation the brain does with 22watts takes huge server banks soaking up massive amounts of power.

any serious attempt to build a true supercomputer based artificial intelligence let alone an independent robot would take several revolutionary leaps in computer science we'd have to leave silicon behind entirely, replace modern digital logic with reversible analog digital hybrid architectures, with on chip gigabytes of operable memory, running (N)threaded super parallel operating systems at terahertz, while talking to fucking quantum gpus through fiber optic simultaneous use buses. and that's just the point when it'd actually be feasible we'd still need a shit ton of work on the problem itself after shaving all those yaks.

unfortunately all that stuffs overkill for what everyone's really talking about when you say AI, jobs. most of the technology for creating robots that could effectively do most jobs already exist or will soon 193nm lithography is just now being replaced with extreme ultraviolet 13.5nm processes that will have 7nm chips on the market this year. the three biggest problems in robotics right now are high density power storage, the fact their just isn't a good linear actuator, and getting enough processing power and sensors into the thing for it to have half an idea what its doing and all that stuff could come a lot sooner than you think.

ultimately all the technology's needed to make AI would change the world in ways you can't even comprehend seriously we have autists building nuclear reactors, gene editing labs, and silicon fabs in their basements today scifi is a pale shadow of what the autistic outcasts of the future will birth.
