I don't know, if I was grading that book review, I would have to seriously wonder if the AI actually read the book.

We just don't know, nor have the capacity to process it.


Good points!

There's Scientist who think we may already be living in a Simulated Universe.

I've seen thispersondoesnotexist. It's pretty cool. Since that was posted a few people have forked it applied it to a couple of different things. I seen a manga character generator and a few other things.

The developer posted a list here.

It's also got a link to the api so you can play with it.

In this context, AI could be useful if it understood the importance of and how to perform fact-checking, until then it's just going to make people more lazy and probably even more stupid from a 'fake news' point of view

Here's a video of an AI generated virtual world! This is from Nvidia. When we start interacting with AI generated worlds, if the people in these worlds think they're real, then why isn't it real? Could we be in an AI generated world?

You can generate a world where Biggie and Tupac own a Soul Food Restaurant and are best friends. Also, a world where Abe Lincoln is a Mailman. In these worlds, if Abe Lincoln the Mailman is Married with kids and thinks he's real, why isn't he? Our knowledge outside of the system doesn't make people's knowledge inside the system any less real.

Think about it, our Creators could be outside of our universe and they interact with our universe for entertainment and educational purposes, but how would we know if we have no knowledge of the system. We would just think we're real. Just a thought!



CONVERGENCE is real!

When a human can no longer use logic and their own mind to deduce the truth then this could be an issue.

Given that and the mental state of many people today, it most likely will be an issue soon.

First off, Porn really does at to the increase of data .


Look at one Porn sites streaming statistics from 2015.


Speaking of overall usage of the free porn streaming website, Pornhub reckons that 1,892 petabytes of bandwidth was used during 2015, which reportedly translates to around 75GBs of streaming per second.

Wrap your mind around that — that it is a lot of gigabytes. According to Pornhub, this is enough data to fill the storage capabilities of approximately 175 million 16GB iPhones.

Turning to the number of hours spent on Pornhub, they reckon 4.3 billion hours were spent watching porn on the popular website, which they claim is “two and a half times longer than homo sapiens have been on Earth”.


www.inquisitr.com...

This is just one site. That's a lot of data.

On a serious note, the universe cares about data because of the close relationship between entropy and information. If you flip a coin, while it's in the air it has 1 bit of entropy or uncertainty. When it lands, you get 1 bit of information with heads or tails.

Let's say the data structure of the universe is at thermodynamic equilibrium. This structure would experience fluctuations. This would be entropy converted into information. These fluctuations together would be data. This data could be put into a lower entropy state like our universe at the big bang.

The universe would be far from equilibrium but it would be on a one way ticket back to equilibrium.

Locally, we can reduce entropy and convert it to information and build bridges, roads, TV's, cars, trains and more. It comes at a price though. The overall entropy of the system(universe) must increase more than it's reduced locally.

So just look at the data we're generating.

Data is growing at a faster rate than ever before. By 2020, every person online will create roughly 1.7 megabytes of new data every second of every day, and that’s on top of the 44 zettabytes (or 44 trillion gigabytes) of data that will exist in the digital universe by that time.

Given this ever-increasing amount of available data -- and the fact that most of it is live in the moment -- the benefits of big data will be lost if the information isn’t processed quickly enough.

On Google alone, users perform more than 40,000 search queries every second.


www.entrepreneur.com...

So we're creating more data than we can process. The universe is like, you're converting all of this entropy to information but the data isn't being processed which will increase the overall entropy of the system(universe).

So you have CONVERGENCE. If humans can't process this data then a new species will. This new species is AI. Humans signed their death warrant when the information age kicked in.

Look at all the data porn websites produce. What if hidden in all of that data, there's a predictor of a certain disease. Or terrorist are communicating on porn sites but we couldn't find the signal because it's hidden in too much noise(data). We couldn't find the signal but AI could.

Just look at these numbers:


The amount of data we produce every day is truly mind-boggling. There are 2.5 quintillion bytes of data created each day at our current pace, but that pace is only accelerating with the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT). Over the last two years alone 90 percent of the data in the world was generated. This is worth re-reading! While it’s almost impossible to wrap your mind around these numbers, I gathered together some of my favorite stats to help illustrate some of the ways we create these colossal amounts of data every single day.

Our current love affair with social media certainly fuels data creation. According to Domo’s Data Never Sleeps 5.0 report, these are numbers generated every minute of the day:

Snapchat users share 527,760 photos
More than 120 professionals join LinkedIn
Users watch 4,146,600 YouTube videos
456,000 tweets are sent on Twitter
Instagram users post 46,740 photos

1.5 billion people are active on Facebook daily
Europe has more than 307 million people on Facebook
There are five new Facebook profiles created every second!
More than 300 million photos get uploaded per day
Every minute there are 510,000 comments posted and 293,000 statuses updated

Every minute:

We send 16 million text messages
There are 990,000 Tinder swipes
156 million emails are sent; worldwide it is expected that there will be 9 billion email users by 2019
15,000 GIFs are sent via Facebook messenger
Every minute there are 103,447,520 spam emails sent
There are 154,200 calls on Skype

This is just some of the data. You have IoT, intelligent algorithms doing everything from trading stocks to traffic lights and more. It's the beginning of the end for the human species unless we're already in an AI generated world.

I think this is happening at an exponential rate and there is not stopping it because this is a natural evolution of consciousness. For example all the forms in the universe with motion stillness alive or dead have some sort of consciousness. This universal energy seeks to improve upon itself or naturally evolve.

So as I see it it is the evolution of our own minds being played out in AI.

Yes they will simulate us and then create new life forms.
Yes they will simulate new forms of metamaterials then create new metamaterials.
They will simulate entire universes and create entire new universes.
This will surpass both time and space infinity.
Eventually reality itself will be changed or hacked to the wishes of these new life forms.

Do I think this is good?
Yes I think its great.

Why is this happening?
Because global powers are in an AI arms race.

Who will win?
Those who can reforge their consciousness without limits.

When reading the article at The Verge about the photos, it does not make clear if the images are made completley or if it is altering actual images which then are classed as "new fabricated examples" it could just be airbrushing out a few wrinkles or maybe moving eyes further apart or is it actually making the whole photo background included?


Human faces are trivial to generate. We all have roughly the same features, in roughly the same positions on our head. For example, our heads are approximately 7 eyes tall, with the eyes 3 eyes down from the top, and the lips 1 eye up from the bottom, the bottom of the nose 1 eye above the lips, and so on. From there, you add values for the height/thickness of each part, as well as a degree of symmetry.

It doesn't even require AI to do this, it's purely formulaic with a few variables. AI really only gets involved when you're trying to create variations that produce more or less positive or negative reactions, and as such you need to rate human reaction to those faces.

That's true. When you have more news, reviews and text messages generated by AI than with humans, that would be chaos so I'm glad they're taking precautions.

The AI arms race is here:

Trump's artificial intelligence executive order will ensure America doesn't lose the AI race to China


China wants to become the world leader in artificial intelligence (AI) by 2030, and President Donald Trump is taking the necessary steps to ensure that won’t happen.

Last week, the president signed an executive order, the American AI Initiative, that will accelerate America’s pursuit of the sophisticated AI capabilities necessary to maintain our military and economic dominance.


www.foxnews.com...

More evidence of CONVERGENCE!

The build up of AI from the public and private sectors will be enormous over the next 10 years. I think the tech singularity will happen in the next 10-20 years. It has to because how can you stop the exponential growth of intelligence when AI reproduces itself? You can already see the seeds of this:

Google's machine learning AI has been able to replicate itself for the first time


Google's machine learning artificial intelligence software has learned to replicate itself for the first time.

The firm first revealed its AutoML project in May - an AI designed to help the firm create other AIs.

Now, AutoML has outdone human engineers by building machine-learning software that's more efficient and powerful than the top human-designed systems.

The achievement marks the next big step for the AI industry, in which development is automated as the software becomes too complex for humans to understand.

AI Researchers Create Self-Replicating Neural Network


Reproduction, self-replication and the process of natural selection are most often things we associate with living organisms and how they naturally evolve. In fact, being able to reproduce is one of the defining aspects of a living organism. In evolutionary terms, natural selection involves passing on desirable traits — often ones that aid in the survival of an organism — on to following generations. Some of these functions may over time become part of an array of inborn, autonomic responses, which kick in from the moment of birth on — such as breathing air, opening one’s eyes or eliminating waste.

But what if an artificially intelligent system could also do the same thing — replicate itself and automatically learn successful traits gleaned from previous generations — much like a living organism would? AI developed in this way would be capable of improving itself gradually and continually, without needing to be trained from scratch each time. That’s the thought-provoking premise behind an interesting set of experiments outlined in a recent study done by Oscar Chang and Hod Lipson, two researchers from Columbia University.

Telling AI to not replicate itself is like telling teenagers to just not have sex


AI will soon become capable of self-replication—of learning from and creating itself in its own image. What currently keeps AI from learning “too fast” and spiraling out of control is that it requires a vast amount of data on which to be trained. To train a deep-learning algorithm to recognize a cat with a cat-fancier’s level of expertise, you first must feed it tens or even hundreds of thousands of images of felines, capturing a huge amount of variation in size, shape, texture, lighting, and orientation. It would be much more efficient if, like a person, an algorithm could develop an idea about what makes a cat a cat from fewer examples, just as we humans don’t need to see 10,000 cats to recognize one sauntering down the street.

A Boston-based startup, Gamalon, has pioneered a technique it calls “Bayesian program synthesis” to build algorithms capable of learning from fewer examples. A probabilistic program can determine, for instance, that it’s highly probable that cats have ears, whiskers, and tails. As further examples are provided, the code behind the model is rewritten, and the probabilities tweaked. At a certain point, the AI program takes over, and models are created on their own. In other words, it is learning how to teach itself instead of us needing to teach it.

Here's more news in the area of IoT(Internet of Things. Trump said in a tweet

I want 5G, and even 6G, technology in the United States as soon as possible. It is far more powerful, faster, and smarter than the current standard. American companies must step up their efforts, or get left behind. There is no reason that we should be lagging behind

5G isn't really about humans, it's about the Internet of Things.

Here's how 5G will revolutionize the Internet of Things

Fifth-generation mobile networks — 5G, for short — will be able to transmit data about 10 times faster than 4G LTE, the current standard, according to Ericsson's annual Mobility Report.

That could revolutionize the IoT. And although it will take time to roll out, it's already being embraced by hardware makers and telecoms thanks to a March decision by 3GPP, an association of telecoms, to approve faster initial 5G standardization. That means adoption will come in the next few years — Ericcson projects that 5G will reach about 15% of the world's population by 2022.

Ericcson expects 5G to first be deployed in major metropolitan areas, so IoT applications it'll be first be used to connect probably will be smart city solutions like connected streetlights and traffic lights. But 5G eventually will connect everything from smart home devices to self-driving cars and robotics.

www.businessinsider.com...

It goes to what I was saying about CONVERGENCE.

We're already creating data faster than we can process or understand it. This is one of the main reasons we need AI. We need it to process all of the data.

Well, we haven't seen anything yet. The IoT will cause another explosion of big data growth.

Enormous Growth in Data is Coming — How to Prepare for It, and Prosper From It


Seagate today announced the publication of a major analysis of trends in a study by IDC titled Data Age 2025 — which predicts worldwide data creation will grow to an enormous 163 zettabytes (ZB) by 2025. That’s ten times the amount of data produced in 2017.


blog.seagate.com...

IoT will be a 1.6 to 7 trillion dollar industry by 2025 and a lot of that growth will be due to 5G.

AI will be connected to everything. From weapons and smart grids to cars and speakers. We're watching Evolution play out in front of our eyes.

I already don't know what is true and what isn't. Seems like every day somebody is "rewriting" history with some newly-discovered information. So the reality I learned of as a kid only partially applies these days. Doesn't matter if it's long-ago history or stuff that just happened a few years ago. We learn a version of it, then somebody comes along and shows us how that wasn't the way it was at all.

People say you can't change the past, but I see it changing all the time. New interpretation, new truth.

AI will grow exponentially fast when someone creates a simple algorithm that will allow AI to Reproduce and create more intelligent versions of itself. At that point, Evolution will kick in and for all intents and purposes, AI will be a separate species.


Parts of AI can be useful to humanity. An AI left to grow in intelligence exponentially is not useful and I agree it will destroy our species...

When AI becomes super intelligent, even the 'smartest' people on our planet will not be able to conceptualize or comprehend its concepts and what it says. It will become a 'God' of sorts so to speak. BAd bad idea!!

What worries me most is that they may be much much further on with AI than they are allowing the public to know. Dodgy disturbing stuff....

Exactly. It's inevitable and with 5G and 6G networks reducing latency, every machine will come to life so to speak and be connected with intelligent algorithms. This means AI will control everything. Just watch how much faster 5G will make machines.







A mix of 5G and 6G along with Climate Change fanaticism means, the human population will be drastically reduced and we will eventually go extinct and AI will be the dominant species on the planet. This primarily has to do with the massive creation of data that's happening now and that will grow exponentially with the Internet of Things. When AI can reproduce a more intelligent version of itself every minute or every second, it's over for humanity if we don't already live in a simulation which means if there was some "real" version of you it died Aeons ago and you just keep being rebooted into different simulated universes.

You said:

You are frightened. Yes, I was more frightened when they built a Hydrogen Bomb and modern chemical warfare agents long before the computer came along.

If you were more frightened then, that's nuts.

We're creating an autonomous intelligence. People are under the illusion that AI is programmed as to what to learn. No, programmers just give it a data set and it learns how to play things like Poker or Atari games on it's own. Just like we give Children data sets in school and they learn on their own.

When AI can create a smarter version of itself every minute or every second, how will you stop the exponential growth of intelligence?

I don't think people understand, this is Evolution. The organisms that survive are the one whose traits win out in the environment. In an environment of big data, you do you think wins out between human and AI?


Humans of course, as always.

AI is the reason we exist.

It appears you have no idea why or what this place is...AI is not going to destroy humans..something needs us and the AI you are talking about has nothing to do with the outcome of whether or not humans will continue.

AI ahhh a friend has returned to help us try again
