I see you are quite moo'ved by this comment.

[-] KIM_JONG_JUICEBOX@lemmy.ml 10 points 1 week ago

How dairy you

[-] MudMan@fedia.io 78 points 1 week ago

In fairness, my brain is reporting the exact same thing, so... it's a tie?

[-] lugal@sopuli.xyz 23 points 1 week ago

No, you just failed the Turing test

[-] nexussapphire@lemm.ee 3 points 1 week ago

It's the same color way.

The danger isn't that it's smart, the danger is that it's stupid.

[-] AdolfSchmitler@lemmy.world 41 points 1 week ago

There's an idea about "autistic ai" or something where you give ai an objective like "get a person from point a to b as fast as you can" and the ai goes so fast the g force kills the person but the ai thinks it was a success because you never told it to keep the person alive.

Though I suppose that's more human error. Something we take as a given but a machine will not.

It's called the AI alignment problem, it's fascinating, if you want to dig deeper in the subject I highly recommend 'Robert miles AI safety' channel on YouTube

Computers do what people tell them to do, not what people want.

[-] Buddahriffic@lemmy.world 3 points 1 week ago

I read about a military AI that would put its objectives before anything else (like casualties) and do things like select nuclear strikes for all missions that involved destruction of targets. So they adjusted it to allow a human operator to veto strategies, in the simulation this was done via a communications tower. The AI apparently figured out that it could pick the strategy it wanted without veto if it just destroyed the communications tower before it made that selection.

Though take it with a grain of salt because the military denied the story was accurate. Which could mean it wasn't true or it could mean they didn't want the public to believe it was true. Though it does sound a bit too human-like for it to pass my sniff test (an AI wouldn't really care that its strategies get vetoed), but it's an amusing anecdote.

ai thinks

AI's are Mathematic's calculations. If you ordered that execution, are you responsible for the death? It happened because you didn't write instructions well enough; test check against that which doesn't throw life on the scale; or maybe that's just the cheeky excuse to be used when people start dying before enough haven't done so that no one is left A.S. may do it, if your lucky. Doesn't matter. It'll just bump over from any of its thousand T-ultiverses.

Or more precise: The danger is that people think it's smart

[-] ooterness@lemmy.world 66 points 1 week ago

Can anyone prove it's NOT an extra-long cow?

[-] Obi@sopuli.xyz 5 points 1 week ago

Not based solely on the evidence presented, no.

[-] originalucifer@moist.catsweat.com 33 points 1 week ago

"we'll never have to worry about those 'cars', that model-t can barely hit 20mph! "

[-] KIM_JONG_JUICEBOX@lemmy.ml 3 points 1 week ago

They will be flying and self driving by the year 2000.

You forgot a maxlength_cow clause after AI was done. Not exactly AI's fault.

[-] kikutwo@lemmy.world 16 points 1 week ago

I mean where else do you think hot dogs come from?

So, does it have a long body or a long neck?

[-] dvlsg@lemmy.world 12 points 1 week ago

Maybe it's like a centipede. Centicow.

[-] notabot@lemm.ee 4 points 1 week ago

I was doing fine, seeing two cows, right up until I read your comment, and now I see it as some sort of weird giraffe like creature with short legs and a surprising ability to balance even with its neck stretched out that far.

Long cow is coming. Look busy.

[-] MeanEYE@lemmy.world 9 points 1 week ago

Actually AI wouldn't even recognize either of those as a cow let alone one long, unless it was specifically trained to look for cow's head or ass.

[-] merari42@lemmy.world 8 points 1 week ago

Long cow is long

[-] AshMan85@lemmy.world 6 points 1 week ago

It is because AI is dumb and putting way too much trust in it that it will kill us.

[-] cmgvd3lw@discuss.tchncs.de 5 points 1 week ago* (last edited 1 week ago)

AI is only as good as the trainer.

[-] FlickeringScreens@lemmy.world 4 points 1 week ago

anyone else think that square stone looks like a Minecraft villager's face?

[-] TrickDacy@lemmy.world 4 points 1 week ago

Yes all technologies that start imperfect stay shitty forever

[-] random_character_a@lemmy.world 2 points 1 week ago

This is just an illusion created by Microsoft and Disney.
