I always assumed if AI ruined human nature, it would be government’s using it to fight wars, the machines take over. Or basically the Terminator film, which is what I think is happening now.
However, instead it seems to be a handful of spoilt tech kids in Silicon Valley competing with each other to push the boundaries of what AI can do, at the expense of us all.
A battle of tech egos is pushing the boundaries of what is possible and have already admonished themselves saying it is not up for them to decide.
The Metaverse seems quaint compared to the changes that we have been told are coming, and quickly.
Google SEO Sundar Pichai has warned everyone to prepare for technologies like the ones it’s already launched!
“Competitive pressure among giants like Google and startups you’ve never heard of is propelling humanity into the future, ready or not,” told interviewer Scott Pelley.
They are doing it so we have to, he appears to be saying.
Only a few weeks ago Elon Musk co-signed a letter in which he and more than 1,800 others demanded a six-month pause in AI research.
Then it turns out Elon Musk is reportedly planning to launch an artificial intelligence company to compete with OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT, as Silicon Valley battles for dominance in the rapidly developing technology.
Six-word prompt story
From a six-word prompt by Pelley, Google’s Bard created a tale with characters and plot that it invented, including a man whose wife couldn’t conceive and a stranger grieving after a miscarriage and longing for closure. “I am rarely speechless,” Pelley said. “The humanity at super human speed was a shock.”
Pelley said he asked Bard why it helps people and it replied “because it makes me happy,” which Pelley said shocked him. “Bard appears to be thinking,” he told James Manyika, a senior vice president Google hired last year as head of “technology and society.” Manyika responded that Bard is not sentient and not aware of itself but it can “behave like” it, reports CNBC.
It seems that Jeff Goldblum’s quote from Jurassic Park is more important than ever: “”You were so busy trying to see if you could, you never stopped to say if you should”
