General Chat / Re: How Might an ASI Tackle Homelessness?

Maybe an ASI could convince (better than I can) people who want to "retire and live on passive income" and make them understand that they can and should help those who are suffering, simply by offering an affordable solution... explaining that life is not about "collecting money", but rather about caring and becoming a good human being.

Do we need an ASI to make them understand?

Maybe an engineering approach could provide a quick fix for the worst symptoms of poverty, this would involve some kind of infrastructural safety net at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder. Something along the lines of your automated housing idea seems appropriate. Though I think this should be done in a way which would randomize social class segregation as much as possible from the get go. But yes, new housing infrastructure which is safe, automated and simple, that seems like the right idea. Maybe something along the lines of Japanese hotels, (a medium sized, one room, well equipped type deal). I think these should come with a simple job in the same building or close by, with which you would be able to earn your keep if you don't have the money, so that the housing units could be self sustaining and even profitable for the people staying there, giving the residents the hope, opportunity, and motivation to get themselves back on their feet.

Basically, a guaranteed safe place to spend the night, store your belongings, develop some skills, and save up some money. Maybe free nutritious food could be included along with this, (possibly surplus from whatever the job is?) because if people can't access basic nutrition, and they're stuck in a stressful or sedentary environment, a large percentage of the population's physical/mental health may deteriorate even though it's avoidable. Elon has reached maximum capacity I'm pretty sure, maybe someone with a will and a way will see this, fly with it, build on it, or be inspired to create their own version.

I was intrigued by how slowly the heat shield seemed to be falling away from the lander when it was released, compared to what I am used to seeing in skydiving videos on Earth. At first I thought it was because of the lower gravity, but then I realized it was because of the very thin atmosphere. The shield and the lander were falling at almost the same very high speed, even with the parachute of the lander deployed, because there wasn't enough drag to slow the lander down much. It really reinforces just how difficult it is to land safely on Mars. Larger planets like Earth and Venus have thicker atmospheres which compensate for the higher gravity and smaller planet(oid)s like the Moon and Mercury have much less gravity so the lack of aerobraking is much less significant.

So... the sky is almost blue, did you notice? We're lucky to live this. What an era!

Woohoo, her very first inference  :D
Felix is a cat, every cat is an animal... what is Felix?

Look at her, she looks so proud of her forward chaining!

Infurl, reading your previous post in the light of your last one helps me understand it better, thanks. Your writing is not deficient, but my reading is, of course (you remember that I'm French).

So we agree on this. :)

Wom, I think your incremental approach is right. Acuitas may not be able to write itself, but it actually does intelligent things. It is, after all, what we want.

Predicts are based on many data, if you see cat ate, cat ate, etc lots more than cat sleep, then probability is higher cat will ate, allowing you to predict the next word better. Searching is to collect data. Sometimes you use booster nodes that already have a lot, so if you need little data, you will quickly assume something.

Have you worked out / have any data on "epiphanies"? (Searching your mind hard for a long time, then - with often a burst of oxygen - a great summation/realisation of new data)

I feel like this is how all prediction systems work, but wanted to see if that's what you think or whether it's separate

If people only use a small % of their brain regularly there must be simplification, eg all spiders into one group, then all insects into one group, then all moving things into one group.. then you only operate on the top level and analyse moving things vs non-moving things, places you can go vs not go, danger vs not danger...

To tell yous / get your opinion....seemed cool that it lightens up that microsaccades are expected, it's just tiny motor exploration, like te rest of our body jiggles very slightly...
