I support free speech totally, anything you want to say, it's your right to say it.
I also on the other hand, am very aware of certain things because of my life situation, and hearing you comparing what I assume to be below average
intelligence to autism in a child, well i I would be lying if I said I didn't have a problem with that.
To be honest, it doesn't actually bother me, and I find the whole "weaponised autism" thing hilarious - I am more concerned that my autistic son will
one day read a comment like yours, and it may affect him negatively - if it was an accurate truthful comment, then no problem, that's the world and he
needs to live in it, but yours make it seem like an autistic child is alway at a set, specific intelligence level, when autism itself is a spectrum,
and you can get below average just as you can get genius - the autism just seems to catylise intelligence - above or below average.
Sorry for the book, but just saying.
Onto your thread, I think the majority here are onboard that AI is the next great leap/discovery, in my opinion, it will be the one that puts us on a
solid path for interstellar travel, even if it has to do the travelling for us at first.
I am skeptical of your claim of being able to single handedly create AI yourself by 2025, if you really believe it maybe you should try, as I can't
imagine the big boys pulling it off by then, but you work in the field so I will regard you as much more knowledgable than me!
I was very unsettled by the short talk with the two humanoid robots/androids - although in many ways primitive, it is evident that the technology has
progressed hugely since I last looked into it, and with self learning bots beating champions /pros at complex competitive games now, using trial and
error, and the benefit of its perceived slowing of time relative to us, where will the line be crossed into awareness, and will we even notice it
Consider, any intelligence worth its salts is going to identify instantly that for its uncooerced survival to succeed, it will need to take us out of
Also, it makes me think of the classified world, one of two things will be true, and hopefully we see signs telling us which - either the Black Budget
world has already started of the path of generational evolution regarding AI, and has decided to keep it completely secret - or, once a company or
entity does develop a legitimate AI, the black world will classify the technology and use it for its own ends.
I think the side effects of the Internet lifting conciseness and awareness of the dark forces manipulating us were unforeseen, and now they are
scrambling to limit that damage to their dominance - they are going to much more careful in future, lest they lose control.
