There are no laws of physics.

That should simply matters somewhat.

MIT scientists created an AI-powered 'psychopath' named Norman

Don't they know it's going to find a way into a human body, escape MIT, and wreak havoc in the world?

What's the point of movies if we never learn from them?

SWEET!

Just gotta make contact, befriend it, and it will protect me - it's only friend - by eradicating the world of all who might conceivably harm me.

WOWZA Shocked youd think? right?

Quote:
MIT has explored other projects that incorporate the dark side of data and machine learning. In 2016, some of the same Norman researchers launched "Nightmare Machine," which used deep learning to transform faces from pictures or places to look like they're out of a horror film. The goal was to see if machines could learn to scare people.


But why??? Shocked

LOL

The Deep Empathy tool I get Wink 🤷‍♀️😂

Good catch...I was just about to link that.
There was another article/interview recently...I think also at Quanta...talking about however much String had test/falsification troubles as physics, the field had yielded all kinds of new mathematical methods and tools.

They make a big deal about "we're number one!" and the speed. Which is cool and all.
But the best thing is the AI-optimization of the machine.
Instead of instantly heading off to make a new/better one [which is what it seems like they plan] what they SHOULD do is mass produce the fucker, 25, 50, 100 or them, and put them to work.

Or at least license or sell the plans/specs to someone who would mass produce the fuckers.

Maybe they do plan something like that...but it doesn't mention it--it only mentions projects that will be run on the one machine.

It's not a law so much as a guideline... Laughing

Wow that supercomputer sounds amazing. And China have been operating one since 2013? This computer is 60 percent faster than TaihuLight Shocked

And it already has commercial applications ..

Jeepers its exciting but also kinda scary actually .. particularly with its weapons design and development capability .. Im seeing Cyberdyne 😬

Hahaha very cool 😎

I could use those tyres. We do a lot of off roading and they would be pretty handy. Just wait a few years and Im sure therell be commercial application and availability. Big Grin
