This would be a scandal for people still busy trying to work out which mosquito nets are better value, like peasants. But start making Bayesian inferences about gazillions of posthuman cyborgs a squillion years from now and you surely earn the right to more suitable accommodation
Absolutely stunning that the Centre for Effective Altruism *bought* this place. #effectivealtruism

1- Long-termist AI ethicists: OMG, AI will destroy use because it's too smart! 2- Short-termist AI ethicists: OMG AI will destroy society because it's too stupid! Both #1 and #2 underestimate human intelligence, learning abilities, and resilience.

I met Sam in 2008. My impression that he is a charlatan has only deepened since then.
no, Sam, that's incorrect. the more these dudes speak, the clearer it becomes they have impoverished knowledge about human cognition

Very interesting. Noticing that a large number of 'pink slime' ostensibly right-wing news sites (as well as many 'prepper' sites) are pushing the work of Howard Zinn.🤔 "zinnedproject\.org" would almost seem to be part of their network. More inquiry needed.

This network is represented here on the left in gray, Zinn stuff is in center of the star shape; pink slime stuff is the satellite clusters.

Unlike most people on Twitter, I’m actually using GPT3 in a production system. The mistake people are making is they are asking “how can I use this to automate a smart person’s job”, when they should be asking “what would I do if I had unlimited dumb people”

1/Consider that Musk just casually dropped what many are hailing as the most advanced AI system ever, in the form of #ChatGPT. Consider that Musk and Putin appear to be allied and acting in concert. politico.com/news/magazine/2…

Today, I have seen tech boi bros saying this new AI chatbot heralds the end of of: books, poetry, news articles, artists and the entirety of higher education. I have read nothing but anodyne bullshit generation. Congrats for saying the same stuff y'all always say.

“He is perhaps best known for labeling Goldman Sachs a ‘vampire squid’ in an article that galvanized public outrage toward Wall Street.” That’s not even a little subtle.
The so-called Twitter Files, internal documents released Friday evening by the independent journalist Matt Taibbi, set off intense debates in the intersecting worlds of media, politics and tech. nyti.ms/3XXejrb

It is amazing how many people can't seem to understand this, even though there is no evidence whatsoever that Putin wants to end the war
No one I know is against diplomacy with Putin to end his invasion of Ukraine. And no one I know has a workable, realistic strategy for achieving or even starting that process. Shouting "more diplomacy" is not a strategy. It is not "realism."

4/Consider that Musk sees technology like ChatGPT as a tool for “freeing” humanity; or, perhaps, he thinks a significant number of people are simply now superfluous and no longer serve any purpose. And that this will help humanity “evolve,” per his “longtermism.”

5/Consider that Barbara Marx Hubbard, mother of “conscious evolution” proposed eliminating (killing) the 25% of humanity that “could not evolve.” Consider stack-ranking at Twitter to eliminate “poor performers.”
You know how Musk is asking employees to report “low performers” at Twitter so they can be removed? That’s the model they’d like to use for society. You know, so humans can “evolve.” Remove the bottom 25% low performers. “Stack ranking,” they call it. Or, “conscious evolution.”

6/It is unclear whether this presents a real national security risk; but it is arguable that Musk intends to present it as such a challenge, and that Putin is likely cheering it. So it is appropriate to consider these developments within a framework of geopolitical intentions.

7/If Musk is intending this technology to (further) upend the existing world order (and perhaps it will, in some ways), those intentions should be taken at face value. We should evaluate both what implications those intentions and alliances have, and appear to them to have.

When times like these make clear quite consistently that following the money does not cover extent and pathways of entanglements or synergistic effects, we need to widen the scope. Narrative -> Strings -> Money -> downstream effects. In that order. National Security 🧵👇
