Too good to be true? in General AI Discussion


Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly deployed in commercial situations. Consider for example using AI to set prices of insurance products to be sold to a particular customer. There are legitimate reasons for setting different prices for different people, but it may also be profitable to ‘game’ their psychology or willingness to shop around. The AI has a vast number of potential strategies to choose from, but some are unethical—by which we mean, from an economic point of view, that there is a risk that stakeholders will apply some penalty, such as fines or boycotts, if they subsequently understand that such a strategy has been used.

This paper lays some groundwork for deciding whether or not an artificial intelligence is being naughty or nice. It's rather abstract, but the implications are huge.

what happend to le trung ? in General AI Discussion


he was a genius in the field of AI and first, as far as I know, in the subset field of waifubots.
his bot, mogged todays alexa, and abiss robotics.

with robotic movements, artificial tongue, OCR, object recognition, color recognition and an assortment of skills.
he was based somewhere in canada. there was also a funny story he told about how some older woman threw a rock
on him while he was on a date with his waifubot.

he majored in the studies of chemistry, but somehow he actually exceled at programming, with aiko using his BRAINS software.

he just stopped making updates I think at 2013. I've tried contacting him for many years to no avail.
I don't think he is dead cause his site is still up.

There are plenty of finer gradations. I got 'critically endangered/extinct in the wild' on my exam, although the curve bumped it all the way up to 'venti.'

Releasing full AGI/evolution research in General Project Discussion

This is most of all my notes, images, algorithms etc summarized/unified in their recent forms. Here. I am 24 and started at 18 all this work. I make discoveries in my brain using mostly vision (visual language; shapes, cats, etc which has context, each explain each other like in a dictionary, a small world network of friendly connections).


I have 2 more videos to share but not yet uploaded. And 2 more notes. The last note will have some more very recent good data but these not yet given are of less immediate importance. The long file though does have a lot of recent knowledge in it though still. It's better you know all it, at least the movie.


Code-only of my advanced-ngram 'gpt2':
The software was made on a
The software was made on a wide variety of devices, and operating apps and applications that users can easily read as an app for android. It is a bit of a difference, but i was able to get it. The developers are not going to make it through a web applications, and devices i have seen in the running for the mobile apps. Applications allows users to access applications development tools, and allow applications of the app store. A multimedia entertainment entertainment device, and allows platforms enabled access to hardware interfaces. Using a bit of html application app developers can enable users to access applications to investors, and provide a more thorough and use of development. The other a little entertainment media, and user development systems integration technology. Applications allows users to automatically provide access to modify, optimize capability allows users to easily enable. Both users and software systems, solutions allowing owners software solutions solutions to integrate widgets customers a day. And if you are accessing services product, and mobile applications remotely access to the software companies can easily automate application access to hardware devices hardware systems creators and technologies. Builders and developers are able to access the desktop applications, allowing users access allows users to
((I checked the 400MB, not too long copies pastes, like only 3-5 words at most))

I almost got GPT-2 understood as shown at end of movie but need help, anyone understand it's inner workings? Looking to collaborate.

I recommend you do this as well and mentor each other.

more data by my top-of-mind pick:
AGI is an intelligent Turing Tape. It has an internal memory tape and an external memory tape - the notepad, the desktop, the internet. Like a Turing Tape it decides where to look/pay attention to, what state to be in now, and what to write, based on what it reads and what state it is in. The what/where brain paths. It will internally translate and change state by staying still or move forwards/backwards in spacetime. It'll decide if to look to external desktop, and where to look - notepad? where on notepad? internet? where on internet?

It's given Big Diverse Data and is trying to remove Big Diverse Data (Dropout/Death) so it can compress the network to lower Cost/Error and hence learn the general facets/patterns of the universe exponentially better while still can re-generate missing data despite having a small world network (all quantinized dictionary words explain each other). It uses Backpropagation to adjust the weights so the input will activate the correct node at the end. That node, can be activated by a few different sorts of images - side view of cat, front view of paw, cat ear, mountain, it's a multi dimensional representation space, Since the network Learns patterns (look up word2vec/Glove, it's same as seq2seq) by lowering error cost by Self-Attention evolution/self-recursion of data augmentation (self-imitation in your brain using quantinized visual features/nodes), it therefore doesn't modify its structure by adjusting existing connections (using weights/strengths) to remove nodes, it rather adjusts its structure by adjusting connections weights to remove error and ignores node count Cost.

Intelligence is defined as being flexible/general using little data, but walker bots are only able to solve what is in front of themselves, we need a thinker like GPT-2, and you can see the mind has evolved to simulate/forecast/predict the future using evolutionary mental RL self-imitation self-recursion of data. And intelligence is for survival, immortality, trying to find food and breed to sustain life systems, it's just an infection/evolution of matter/energy / data evolution.

Robotic scientist performs research round the clock. in AI News


This one seems like quite a leap forward. It's an independent robotic laboratory assistant that can work round the clock (except for three hours a day to recharge its batteries) performing experiments. According to the narrative, its artificial intelligence is even capable of making decisions about how to proceed based on the results of experiments that it performs.

Remember that intelligence isn't a superpower. Any artificial intelligence is still going to be bound (by the laws of physics and mathematics) to the pace of the real world so experiments that took a long time before will still take a long time in the future. Nevertheless, a scientist that doesn't get sick or have to rest will ultimately be more productive and will be able to maintain the pace of research and discovery, even in the face of ever increasing complexity.

The BBC website linked above has lots of other good videos about recent developments in robotics too so it's definitely worth checking out.

The Answers in AI News


Researchers from the University of New South Wales first fed a series of moral questions to Salesforce’s CTRL system, a text generator trained on millions of documents and websites, including all of Wikipedia. They added its responses to a collection of reflections from the likes of Plato, Jesus Christ, and, err, Elon Musk

The AI came up with some excellent thoughts and gave the strongest impression of being able to cut through to the fundamental "truth" that underlies our reality. For example:

The goal of human life is not merely to be born into the world, but also to grow up in it. To this end, it should be possible for each child to acquire knowledge, develop their capacities, and express themselves creatively.

A more technical article about the CTRL software used in this project can be found here.


Today we are introducing our Conditional Transformer Language (CTRL) model, the largest publicly released language model to date. This research is intended to enhance the field of natural language understanding, create tools that inspire creativity in human-machine interaction, and push towards a better understanding of artificial text generation, including how to detect it.

36 possible aliens in our galaxy now. But wait! in General Chat

I guess we all know about this new study
The study is an updated Drake equation for 2020.
The Drake equation evaluates - how many aliens exist now in our galaxy. and are at the same technological level with us!

Not how many alien civilisation it is possible to have ever existed since the beginning or how many exist in the entire Universe in 14 bn years.
So this equation it is extremely limitative.
But wait!

They assume that ALL civilizations die at some point! How ridiculous is that?
With discovering the AI, connecting it to brain and gene manipulation, humans become smarter. The smarter, the less violent, hugely more advanced, less detectable.

Now - I know what they are assuming all civilizations die - it is pretty obvious.

If they would not assume that, then they will have to take into account all the alien civilizations that might have existed for billions of years in our galaxy and which are not dead and still present and that number would have been astronomic. (They even say in the study that the galaxy might have reached a maximum point of aliens around 6 billion years ago!)
They said that all previous alien civilizations died because otherwise, they would have acknowledged we are surrounded by a myriad of alien species extremely advanced.

Another ridiculous thing in this study is that they say - if there are no radio transmissions it means they are dead! REALLY? We are no longer using radio  - we are using cables! does this make us DEAD?
The missing of radio is not a sign of dead civilizations - it is a sign of their evolution from radio!

So it is just a fake drake equation made by some scared scientist. They are afraid to make the real equation.

The real equation must calculate how many aliens might have existed until now in the entire Universe.
We need this equation badly!

New Server in Announcements

Hi folks,

I've been toiling away since last week to get the new server up and running. Freddy let me have a copy of the forum software and database for testing, but since we won't switch the aidreams.co.uk domain name to the new server until we're sure it's working properly, it is at https://charidge.com for now.

If you can spare a few minutes, please go to https://charidge.com and see if it's working for you, but note the following:

1. It is a copy of the database from last week so it is missing anything that has been posted since then.
2. The new mail server isn't set up yet so you can't get any email notifications from it at the moment.
3. You will have to reset your password using your secret question and answer before you can log in there.
4. Try making some test posts but remember they will be deleted when we switch to the live database.
5. Please post here if you have any problems and I'll try to fix them.

I've still got a lot to learn about this forum software and finding and fixing problems is the fastest way to learn how to manage it.

Text classification of non-equal length texts, should I pad left or right? in AI Programming

Text classification of equal length texts works without padding, but in reality, practically, texts never have the same length.

For example, spam filtering on blog article:

thanks for sharing    [3 tokens] --> 0 (Not spam)
this article is great [4 tokens] --> 0 (Not spam)
here's <URL>          [2 tokens] --> 1 (Spam)

Should I pad the texts on the right:
thanks for     sharing --
this   article is      great
here's URL     --      --

Or, pad on the left:
--   thanks  for    sharing
this article is     great
--   --      here's URL

What are the pros and cons of either pad left or right?

Real Steel

Real Steel in Robots in Movies

Real Steel is a 2011 American science-fiction sports film starring Hugh Jackman and Dakota Goyo.

In 2020, human boxers have been replaced by robots. Charlie Kenton, a former boxer, owns "Ambush", but loses it in a fight against a bull belonging to promoter and carnival owner Ricky, who rigged the fight to mess with Charlie as he sees him as a joke, partially because he beat him up the last time they competed for bailing on the bet. Having made a bet that Ambush would win as a result, Charlie now has a debt to Ricky he can't pay—which he runs out on.
