Re: ?Who's gonna stop the fake news when the polls are down?
I have some hints of conscience and I am at least de jure right now and, with some help, can de facto own AI and control its future... Sergey Brin and others... You decide... ... I.Geller
Oh please, I.Geller, surely you know that is always to be something you decide, but/and you will need to be significantly better than just good and great at owning/pwning/preening AI for control of the future, for competition and opposition will ensure it be so.
And as for ....
The OpenAI charter ..... came under question in February this year when OpenAI developed an AI model, called GPT-2, which it was claimed could be used to generate news reports that were hard to distinguish from human-authored ones, a dangerous tool in an era of fake news.
"Due to our concerns about malicious applications of the technology, we are not releasing the trained model," the company said.
Good luck with trying to keep that sort of development out of the mainstream. The battle has surely long ago been lost. Just read daily newspaper headlines and the tales they introduce to realise the truth and everything new and revolutionary is feared by owners of the past who have abused and misused and taken full wanton advantage of human ignorance and how easy the masses are led by media devices giving suggestive audio-visual signals.
The fundamental error that has been made by that and those in present positions of extreme power and past influence, is that they never realised nor imagined that others around them would be a great deal more intelligent and more knowledgeable than they would ever be enabled to be, and that they would discover the secret ways and virtual means to have memes come alive and rule in a world full of worlds hosting minnows with wannabe sharks.
And all that is available for either attack or defence are the uncertain Tell Tale Terrors of FUD.
