It all depends upon who you are and what you are peddling.
Of course "Anti vax" stuff will be filtered out. Even if it's relevent ?
What else will be filtered out to suit the status quo in acceptable output ?
How do you know that the unacceptable bit isn't the truth ?
How do we know the "actual truth" isn't being twisted to fit the output requirements of the system ?
Who says what is acceptable and what isn't ?
At the end of the day, I suspect that we are just building bigger and more powerfully biggotted AI designed to suit the requirements of someone in power, as opposed to real people without power.
Oh, similar to what we have today ? Yes, built on the same guiding principles................some of you are just not worthy.............simple
A few years ago a close friend submitted his doctoral thesis to an Oxford University, five times before it was accepted "as is".
Four times his Doctorate was refused because the Don disagreed with the challenge to Ampere's Theory contained in the thesis. The Don told my friend that he would accept his thesis if he simply removed the "offending" chapter.
You can see where this is headed ?
If my friend had been a simple twat, he might have ben persuaded to remove the offending chapter, even if it meant that his thesis amounted to a load of nonesense.
The load of nonesense would have been loaded in an AI model under the label "authenic" or "science".
Personally I don't see the logic.
Neither did my friend.
He eventually got his doctorate on his original material, after the college switched Heads for the purpose.
Trust in scientific process............?
I'd rather trust Google's AI..........
Yes I up voted you because I agree with you about those who plant landmines.
I am however unable to down vote as well. I'd like to down vote 'cos Britain is amongst the world leaders in land mine production and export. Something which BREXIT did not have much of an effect on.
As far as I am concerned, those who make profit from munitions manufacture are really the lowest of human kind.................
being that 90% of folks couldn't pass a maths exam without cheating or looking up the answers.
Back in tha days of study it happened that 200 students each year for 10 years gave the wrong answer to a maths question. They all gave the answer that was printed at the back of the book and passed the exam. Unfortunately around 2002 it was discovered that the printed answer was wrong.
The majority of these students went on the "secure" a job in the industry.
Hmmm, sounded great in the article, especially versions for Android phones.
Well that was a little nightmare. Won't be doing that again in a hurry.
The NetHunter I installed lasted 5 minutes. The first annoying shite was "this is your chance to win digicoins, Argos vouchers...........oh FUCK, what have I done. OUT you come.
Yes, I won't be doing that again in a hurry.
As usual it's what "they" want "us" to do, have, do without, etc.
Someone earlier said "The opinion of what the culture secretary deems appropriate is arbitrary and deeply worrying." And I strongly agree.
Who are these people to be dishing out their opinion on anything ? Privileged twats as usual.... Don't get taught anything useful at school, just how to rule.
Hence we are stuck in a slow spiral of death as these peeps are too far removed from reality to know their arse from their elbow.
The world is laughing at them and they arrogantly think that they are laughing with them.
So if hardware from China may be able to be used by Chinese government agencies to spy on peeps over here, why didn't we just ask the Chinese to share the fucking data and save ourselves the sodding embarrassment all round ?
my humble pc became victim to a none existent BIOS update many years ago.. The only peeps utilising such a means to gain undetectable access and control at that time were UK GCHQ and some US outfit operating under some acronym, with acrimony...........
Maybe my support of various none governmental orgs at that time warranted such efforts to gain info ? Who knows ? It wasn't the Chinese I know that much.
(a) for every few thousand menial jobs taken over, there will be a few hundred far more satisfying, interesting and high-paying jobs in designing, building, operating and maintaining the robots,
Sorry, these jobs have already gone to the robots...............
b) most busy retail stores I've been, the staff are spending a lot of time folding, packing, tagging and whatever else while at the same time not being available to offer customer service, advice, etc
Sorry the last remaining retail store closed 10 years ago, everything you WILL NEED can be found within 15 minutes of your home
and you have 30 seconds to complete your objective..................
Fact, in South Wales archeologists working near Neath discovered a previously unknown iron smelting facility which had been burried beneath the known and much later, Middle Ages iron smelting facility assocaited with the Abbey.
Upon further investigation it was discovered that the original facility had been visited by the Romans, NOT built by them.
I am not sure of the final outcome of the research, but I am sure that there is some paper written about steel production in South Wales prior to the Roman invasion of Britain.
No one in their right mind is going to carry from coast to coast great armfuls of iron ore and limestone. This sort of shit is a modern affliction.
I assume that in the days before international transport, flint knappers knapped flint where they found it, or where it was dug it from the earth, ie; Dorset, etc. Clay does not carry well when wet and it is damned heavy, so potters of yore dug pot holes where ever they could find clay emanating from the ground. They did not have the machinery to mine it like it is produced to day. No generally speaking "they" did not carry the raw materials with them unless the material was small and light in weight.
Some enterpising Romans, Greeks, Egyptians etc, did cart stone and timber thousands of miles before working it, but this was not a gereral practice, just something folks managed to do over thousands of years of human history. Presilli Blue stones carted to Wiltshire to build Stonehenge, I believe is not something done every day.
In the olden days, I believe it was customary for an invading army to preserve for export, scribes, metal workers, ceramists, healers et al.
The producers did not give away their secret formulas, they were kidnapped and had new masters, if they were lucky. Otherwise, what they knew locally died out with their family during the take over.
In the Ashmolean museam in Oxford, there are examples of "Imperial" ceramic wares covered with a beautiful red glaze.
In the past, this red glaze was referred to in order to prove an unbroken line of Imperial rule in China.
However, recent examination of these artifacts glazes has shown that the glazes were in fact made from three independant formulas, each glaze having been re-invented after breaks in production of several hundred years. Source locations of the material used in the glazes had apparently been dug in three different regions, in different periods of China's long history of Imperial rule.
A friend recently went to India with some tin he had collected in Cornwall. In a market in Calcutta he found someone to buy his tin. The purchaser pointed out that my friend was the latest person to bring tin from Cornwall to Calcutta where they produce pewter using the Cornish tin. Apparently the Phoenecians were amongst the first traders to take tin from Cornwall to Calcutta.
That any number of lame ass m*fos will be queueing up to use this shit. As it has been shown, folks are happily playing in the dodgy AI shit wot is already available.
Judging from the number of hilarious errors I have seen already being outputed by these Intelligent ? things, most people do not even notice the obvious/trivial errors in English language, when they have been generated. Are we expecting mere mortals to be able to spot the maths errors, like those published recently in Wired magazine ?
Well, it occurs to me that if an idiot is using AI then they aren't going to spot the errors are they ?
So on we go with morons relying AI to teach and serve the other morons........................here's how to use AI, with AI
I feel a song coming on..........AI, AI, AI. Now then, now then, now then, let's be avin you, 'cos it doesn't add up, no it doesn't add up, it can only take away IA, IA, IA, what a wonderful day
When will humans start to use their brains ?
Once these small/trivial errors (like bad/American spelling) have been outputed several times without a challenge by software or human, the error will be accepted as an acceptable answer in future, will it not ?
Quid Pro Quo American English will win and "proper" English will be a thingy of the past which children in UK will no longer need, 'cos everything will end up being spelled the American way everywhere that American commerce oriented AI has had it's wonderfully malformed mits.
TWITS. You won't be capable of telling the difference between talk and mutter.
Well I am wondering just how much isolation Windose Defender is responsible for.
I have Windoese 10 box for every day use and whilst it isn't as fast as previous versions it has until the other day been useful, meaning I can get work done, just about.
Now I am unable to SAVE a Project created with WoW Slider or Visual Lightbox, which I have been using for years, now all of a sudden and for no known reason, it can no longer be done.
I have been experiencing unexpected crashes of FOSS on Windose 10 which I have never experienced before on previous Microshaft OSes.
Libre Office is so unreliebale that I might have to buy a Microsoft licence just to write letters and keep my current spreadsheets in use.
I do not see anyone else reporting that Libre Office crashes without SAVING data after the SAVE command had been used. Yes several rows of data entered has simply disappeared and needs to be re-entered, SAVED and in some cases, re-entered again. This only happens on my two Windose 10 boxen. It does not happen when Libre Office runs on Linux MX or Debian boxen
Ah well, it looks like it's time to go full Linux OS then.
all these years developing stuff one would have thought that Microsoft devs would have a long list of things like "Print Spooler", which often get broken when they release a new Operating System.
Shirley it's not too much work to write a list and then have devels refer to it before starting coding, during coding and then again afterward coding - and especially before releasing the OS on the general public ?
I obviously do not know what I am talking about..........
Since last week I have similar issues when attempting to watch TV streamed from the TV company's own web site..........I now have half dozen browsers to choose from if I feel that desperate that I cannot get through life without watching TV
In our race to automate (improve ?) everything - we the able bodied often forget to include the likes of folks who are less well endowed with stuff like, vision - for a start.
In my own ADHD world, it appears that it has been decided by none ADHD people that ADHD people do not focus on the same bits of an image, or sound, or vocabulary that the other, none ADHD people do. Er, aren't these the people who are designing interrfaces for us ADHDers to use.............
When there are so many problems that need solving I am constantly amazed at the number of problems that are being invented currently which disbaled and able bodied people are supposed to solve before they can get any fucking work done.....
Is this more AI ? Artificial Idiocy at work - as usual I say, yawn. The human brain !
El Reg lost a hell of a lot more when they opened up the editorial to the none UK litteratii.
No slurs intended peeps, English is English, as fucked up as the language is, it is unique for opportuning such delights as "humour" out of these ambiguities, ie; irony for a start.
What we in UK have enjoyed from this greater diversity of tech input has unfortunately, watered down our previous sense of enjoyment, having been created by such a warped sense of humour which often lays bare the marketing wallabies best efforts to confuse and bamboozle us. Dabbsie etc.
As I haven't been there it is probably incorrect for me to have an opinion on our friendly US and Oztrralian scribes, but from reading the lines here in el Reg, (as there are now less lines in between to read) it appears that OZtralian and US scribes cannot tell the difference between talk and mutter........ Having attempted to read the "news" on BBC Home recently, I assume they have taken a similar globalizing route to publishing news about the news, but not the "actual news" you thought you were gonna get......
Alas, our loss is also to our benefit..........?
stupid idiotic things the UK Go Vermin have done already or are are planning to do in the future, handing over NHS patient data to the organisation which is claiming to be capable of handling the information securely...................
Aw for fucks sake, not again !
Sod it, I do believe that no one in UK Go Vermins is actually taking any notice, or maybe they already know about this shit show and are hoping to get their payout before the shit REALLY hits the fan.............s
I think the responses above illustrate quite clearly the inability of some folks to think out side of the box.
Poking bears isn't very nice to start with, so if you get a bit bit, you are surely a very lucky idiot, pity you didn't stick your head through the bars mate..............
