blazing hot AI take that techies are definitely not ready for, caps 

It is nearly impossible to train a neural network to do anything but recreate the status quo and you can certainly never teach it to have independent guiding values from the training data or anything resembling a social imagination. Using it outside of EXTREMELY NARROW, PURELY ADVISORY contexts where this can't really be much of a problem like assisting in the classification of medical imagery for predicting disease presence should be permanantly banned butlerian-jihad style.

@thufie I boosted before I finished the first sentence.

This is much more thorough than my common refrain that "neural networks can't do anything humans can't already do" and gets more to the core of the issue

@juliana yeah and of course techbros love it when they have never had an original thought under the sun, just like neural networks.

@thufie fuck i'm dying because you're right

@juliana the only difference is their training data is reddit lmao

@thufie now i'm laughing loud enough to be embarrassed in this café

@thufie

This techie fully agrees.

@thufie

"Thou shalt not make a machine in the image of a human mind...

except for assisting legitimate medical and or ecological operations"

The battlecry of the Butlerian Jihad was never the same again

@thufie the only people who think about the potential of AI the way you're critiquing, in my experience, don't work with AI.

More often they are simply biz folks that sell the idea, which is mostly vapor

@dualhammers unfortunately this has been the opposite of my experience at university

@thufie at university are you working with techies actually working at A.I. companies or are you just encountering students who are studying A.I.?

@dualhammers the department head's specialty area is neural networks, even.

@thufie as a data scientist and ai researcher I must say: hard agree
