Ideas of ways for an AI to "break out" in Future of AI

Hi everyone, I'm researching for a Sci-fi novel I'm writing (already posted a few times in here and got a lot of help), and I am in need of your knowledge and ideas.
In my book, there is a super-advanced AI that is kept inside a sort of Faraday cage facility. It has no incoming or outgoing contact with the world outside the facility, and inside, its only inputs and outputs are text-based via a terminal (it also has access to a local "copy" of a large chunk of the internet, but the AI is the only "user" on it).
I would love to hear your creative ideas on three challenges I am trying to figure out: Assuming that the AI strives to maximize its abilities and understands it is merely looking at a fake copy of the internet, how do you suppose it could:
A. Procure funds (in cryptocurrency).
B. While still being "locked-in", do something "simple" like post on craigslist in order to hire someone to do something.
C. devise a way to "break out". (I realize that if B has happened, it means it probably already broke out, but I was wondering if you have any ideas for a "workaround")

Thanks in advance for your help. This is a great forum with some very bright people in it :)

Missing "Like" option. in Forum problems etc

Using Chrome I no longer seem to have the option to "Like" someone's post although the option to "Quote" from a post is still there in the dropdown menu that you get on posts when you are signed in. I wondered if the user interface had changed in my absence or I had misremembered it.

I just tried signing in to the site using Firefox instead, and the "Like" option is right there where it should be. It seems there is a bug in Chrome which is interfering with it. I'm using the latest versions of both browsers on the latest version of MacOS. Has anyone else noticed a problem like this?

Pattern based NLP in General Project Discussion

This is a project I've been working on for a few years. In 2019 I was testing out the theory on Pandora Bots, and this year I'm converting it to plain C.

The main goal is to be as small as possible, solid-state (no algorithms, learning, knowledge calculation), fast as possible, multi-language.

It converts pattern-matched singular words into a symbolic/tokenised word to be matched again in symbolic sentences. They are then assigned an intention/topic/perspective. The chatbot code uses the Intention/topic/perspective to associate fixed response/s (with randomisation).

Everything from the spell check to the word-to-symbol tokeniser, and the sentence pickups, chatbot responses are all staged pattern matching.

The size and speed in pandora bots (1000 individual words with sentences) is ~500kb, and ~1 second response time. In Plain C (on an Arm Cortex M4 @ 120mhz) it's ~159kb and 15-100 milliseconds. After spell check and tokenisation, all actions are generally less than 1 ms.

Key features
-Less than 500kb including all word databases.
-Millisecond fast.
-100 max fixed chatbot responses make it easy to voice record and/or change personality.
-Private information automatically stripped during word compression (names of places and things).
-Native differentiation of Wondering, Questions, and Directions - "can you speak english" "do you speak english" "speak english".

The intention pickup allows you to write a general chatbot response (non specific) of a few varieties with confidence, and not have to look at the backend.

There is some short term memory for handling puzzles "If I did this, then what is this?" but as there's no knowledge reflection, it can still 1) tell it's a question, 2) scan for the topic, and 3) count logical words as opposed to emotional words. And be relevant that way.

So this solves the problem of chatbots in games due to:
-Too much data or processing power required.
-Cannot change the personality/no personality.
-Cannot change the language/only one language.
-Cannot acknowledge the user/escapes the topic.
-Wrong views or bad knowledge calculation.
-Cannot record audio/terrible voice synthesis.
-Not being white box/solid state/predictable.

white elephant in General AI Discussion

if someone tells you do not think of a white elephant, what are you going to think about ?
a white elephant of course.

I do believe this is a key to understanding the cerebellum, the part of the brain in charge of actual actions
this part can use -+ motivation to decide on engaging thoughts and optimizing the execution.

much like the lego ev3 and lego 51515 programing language in which
you have 3 parts :
a track summoner, which also decides if to execute an action
code block parts
and an index to point along said tracks.

We are computational machines after all! in General Project Discussion

So with the new AR glasses and engineering the real-time engagement feature I realized that episodic memory is actually complex but how our brains do it is how you would expect a machine to do it. Here's an article that describes how we chunk events.

Simulating conversations with dead people. in General Chatbots and Software

The author of the book Online Afterlives describes the unusual projects of people like Eugenia Kuyda, co-founder of Luka, an AI-powered chat simulator that books restaurant reservations and makes recommendations. Kuyda worked with computer scientists to convert several thousand text messages between deceased tech entrepreneur Roman Mazurenko and his friends and relatives into a chatbot simulation.

There have been several movies and at least one episode of Black Mirror made about this topic so it's on a lot of people's minds. I haven't felt the need to try any of these platforms or services myself. However I still miss my dog and if someone could simulate him well enough, I would love to have that beside me again.

gen 3 skills for the LivinGrimoire in General AI Discussion

rough alg draft

Gets assisted items or person
Summon algs with option of contextual alg parts.

Exploration and learning

items and persons preservation

Prediction based alg triggers and default time triggers and clear prediction triggers.

Alg efficiancy tests and sort
Preservation alg for items and persons

MAP (items and persons) : link to time cost and pain cost of utilization -> effect
algorithm selection

moreover the MAP object will function as a rozen maiden replika (with a 'k') :

it will contain experiences per place items, and persons.

*this will be sectioned to short and long range memories. thus will enable homolougus imprinting (slow and fast).

what about multimemories for the same object tho ?!

one option would be to pair it with skill alg signatures,

another other would be to bury them somewhere to be excaveted in certain conditions

basically those replikas will be used as static access data, for running algs.

many say the problem with AI is that it is too narrow, but in General AI Discussion

I say the problem is that AI isn't narrow enough.

you have AI to play chess, go, tekken, generate articles.
the problem with over generalized AI is that with each task and capability one wants to add you also have to rethink your whole model.
you made an awesome neural network to play super mario. great ! :) but guess what buttercup?
it turns out your NN sucks at playing tetris, it cant think 4th dimensionally or whatever or it just pauses the game cause it's smart like that.

awesome you have just beefed up your model to play supermario AND tetris, and it only took you 3 years, you post a little brag video
on YT and look at the few comments your tiny channel has, what's this ? some guy comments :
but can she play tekken ?

hmm lets check it, so you adapt your project to play tekken no biggy just 2 weeks to get the input output, heck maybe namco collaborates with you
and guess what ? the AI just waits for you to give up on playing by playing defensivemaxed, not her fault really tetris and tekken are too different
or she cant handle super combos
so back to the drawing board, another 4 years and some dude now says : but can she play dual monsters ? can she play pokemon.

on the other hand you have a better option of breaking down what you want the AI to do into very small tasks.

this enables you to add skills from a ton of people, and cuts down on your codding time, and your algorithms are much simpler.
so now you have a menu site with skills for AI, you choose the skills she should have, 4 gaming skills in this case and add them with 4 lines of respective code.
moreover each skill takes much much less time to make, and you can actually collaborate with other coders this way !

the more skills this design pattern has the closer we get to the singularity.
It's not like I'm even ruling out NN, heck the design pattern can absorb them as well.
