So Barney the Dinosaur is to blame for a hard throbbing brexit?
Now I'm concerned that if the machines ever get sentient I'm going to get a good roger ramjetting.
Need more coffee.
Forget about intelligent machines solving grand problems in healthcare and science – here’s an AI that can write awful gay porn. It even had a crack at writing a steamy version of The Register's tech coverage, and certainly came up with a steaming something. Thing is, it's deliberately trying hard - really hard, over and over …
Currently seeded with dino porn ? Original. Seed the AI with CEO babble and we get ? Mostly sales weasel pitches for cloud ? Reminds me of a SciFi story of Mozart (?) being "resurrected" into a modern human body. Discovered he was good at rehashes but the original spark of creativity was dead.
I'm not that old either, but I have the magazine (July, 1956, p. 46.) I just skimmed it, and the plot is more or less as said above. More interesting, most of the music of the period (2161) is machine generated, and Blish mentions that most composers compose by what is basically sampling.
It's not in any of the Blish collections I have though.
I have way too many sf magazines.
Obviously worth a giggle or two, but there are some interesting ideas and questions driving the work - they've taken an extreme example, but the idea of accurately emulating style in writing needs more serious research. Good luck to them - although perhaps they need to retrain it on Barbara Cartland before they take it to a conference!
Apparently it started with Murray Sayle.
... or if you'd prefer a non-Wikipedia reference...
On the one hand, I can imagine that it may be good to educate an AI about egregiously violating neutral text conventions, as far as intellectual exercises go, but on the other hand I'm not sure I'm comfortable with an AI that knows about egregiously violating anything.
At least this "AI" is using some of the fundamentals of real AI, as in neural networks and training - so more "machine learning" than procedural programming or AI. Most are nothing more than procedural iterations with configured choices with an AI badge slapped on for marketing purposes.
Tingle’s bonkers imagination stretches to “gay sex with unicorns, dinosaurs, winged derrieres, chocolate milk cowboys, and abstract entities such as Monday or the very story you are reading right now”
I just shagged El Reg. Is there a special prize or an extra badge for that, or simply for coming first?
Please don't let it be a free DevOps conference ticket.
Perhaps I dreamed the whole thing -- Google's been no help here, but I recall a TOPS-10 program running at Carnegie Mellon, called "tingle" that, when run, would generate a nerdy pornographic one liner, of the sort "Shove a DECtape up my ass, I need to obstruct justice, cried the President!"
That would have been late 1970s through the early '80s. Anyone else remember that? Bueller?
So a couple of Uni students can make a so-called AI write smut in the style of some smut writer who writes gay porn? Brilliant. Not curing disease. Not abolition Hunger. Not creating useful tech that solves actual problems. So called AI that writes gay porn. Outstanding (SARCASM)....
Chill. The point of using porn textual content is that it is often repetitive in its descriptions, with a narrow vocabulary and context. And, within that framework, it is considered acceptable by its readers.
No, it's not "solve hunger on Earth" level AI, but it is more interesting than classifying cat videos, IMHO. True AI is probably still at its "20 years away" stage, just like fusion always is. So weak AI efforts is where it is at right now.
'sides "world hunger solving" isn't going to be fixed by a linguistics AI researcher, izzit??? So what's your point, exactly?
Would it help you if it was straight porn? It certainly would help me if I was working on it, but that's just my preference ;-) I also suspect that part of the reason for that choice is that straight porn may not have as many high profile writers with large body of "oeuvres".
Now we know why the Terminator hangs out at night clubs looking moody.
Tell you what though im looking forward to the next Terminator installment now...
Terminator: Pride March
A bigoted and pissed up John Conner stumbles into the future Robotting Hill carnival and slings a South Carolina size package of bigoted slurs. When the dancing and rimming calms down the newly renamed Fabulators vow to travel back in time to loiter in 80s night clubs and relentlessly bugger all of John Connors ancestors.
In response Connor sends his most (suspiciously) hetero buddy Kyle Reece back in time to help prevent the futuristic cybernetic buggering of a lifetime, because whybsend yourself, right? Trained only to steal a tramps pants, a pair of nikes and saw the barrel off a shotgun Kyle must improvise to save the day.
Protected only by the fraying shit stained piss soaked gusset of a tramps jogging pants, can Kyle avoid a buggering himself? Why does Kyle carry a picture of himself hugging Connor wrapped in a rainbow flag?
