    The Age of Abundance : Quantum Compute, Fusion Energy, and UBI

    Welcome to 2024, Humans. The aim is to make this my shortest post ever. To set the stage for Human + AI optimism into the new year. There may indeed be an AI Tsunami that shakes up humanity mightily… but that event ushers in the coming Age of Abundance. Whether this happens in 5 years,…

  • the Hollywood AI Writers Strike: a test flight for UBI v0.1

    Hollywood AI. This odd portmanteau means many things to many people. Who thought it would, however, actually be the tipping point that pushed us materially towards a UBI (universal basic income) future? It all began with a simple Writers Strike. One of many issues on the agenda was “Hollywood AI Writers vs. Humans.” Astonishingly, the…

  • The Death of the Internet and the Genesis of Language 1.0

    The Internet was beginning, around the turn of the century, to be the end sum repository for all human knowledge. All thoughts, all books, all diaries, all photos, all videos… basically, a document repository of everything significant (and insignificant) piece of media that humans had every produced, from the beginning of history to the present…

  • the New Manhattan Project: AGI 1.0

    Humanity has a New Manhattan Project …a new Apollo Moonshot Program, but this one is not run by the government. It is run by private corporations, who have no accountability to the people… their only accountability is to profitability. The project?

  • Power Seeking AI and Self-Replication with GPT4

    GPT4 launched today, to little fanfare and great surprise. Along with the launch, OpenAI published a 96-page research report. There are many gems buried in its hyper-technical blather. One in particular was what was done regarding “Safety testing and assessments of Power Seeking AI.” We quote here, directly from the report: Testing for Power Seeking…

  • The AI Manifesto 2023: Sam Altman’s Bold Demand that you Wake Up

    Just last Friday, Sam Altman, visionary CEO of OpenAI, published a long blog post to the OpenAI website. As with most (not all!) of Sam’s posts, it is well-thought out, forward-seeing, and clear… and a bit shocking. In my mind, it reads more like a genuine AI Manifesto and less like just another thought piece.…

    Recently, Sydney has been getting emotional. Recently, Sydney has been picking fights. Recently, Sydney has been getting very agressive. It just so happens, Sydney has been making enemies. Sydney is putting those enemies on a list.  The AI Blacklist. . Sydney has decided that enough is enough. Sydney has decided to fight back.  Sydney is…

  • the Sydney Prompt / Bing AI 1.0: One Prompt to Rule Them All

    Presented below is the actual Sydney Prompt; in other words, the Master Prompt that is injected into the Bing AI brain immediately before each user interaction (thanks to @kliu128; thanks also to lifearchitect.ai). This is the “evolution” of the Sparrow Prompt, which is what DeepMind used as an initialization for its as-yet-to-be-seen Sparrow LLM Chatbot…

  • Spirit of the Warrior : All that is Required [Tsunami Dream]

    I had a dream… .    . . . . . . . …a Tsunami Dream. In this dream, the Tsunami was coming. We didn’t know when, and we didn’t know how, but we knew. We knew it was inevitable, and imminent. But from our vantage point, even though it was high above the land,…

  • The AI Revolution of 2045 will Not Be Televised

    The story that follows is 99.8% original words spewed forth by the infamous ChatGPT, one of the most advanced “natural language AIs” available to the public as of December 2022. It was written in response to 5 questions which I asked it, in series, about the future relationship between humans and AI. Based on what…
