    AI Racism 2024 : the Woke Google Gemini Scandal

    In case you missed it: On Feb 15 2024, Google quietly launched what is most probably the most advanced AI ever created by humanity (yes, in many ways, superior even to OpenAI’s GPT4). It is called Google Gemini Pro v1.5. It cost ~$2 billion to train. And it is racist as f*ck. In fact, it…

    Roberts Five Laws of Robotics 2024

    If you haven’t seen the writing on the wall — like this shiny Optimus robot model that is showing up in Tesla showrooms around the world — AI-driven humanoid robots are coming. And they’re going to need some prime directives. In tribute to Asimov, lets call them the Five Laws of Robotics. Musk states that…

    AutoGPT and BabyAGI v1.0, Evil ChaosGPT & EotWaWKI

    I’m not up for full-on considered composition on this post, so I’m just going to copy and paste some stream-of-thought ideas from my DMs, interspersed with screenshots. Bottom line: Give GPT4 an “Agentic” (futurepost: What is an Agent?) front end, that allows a) goal-setting, b) net browsing, c) memory storage, d) code execution privileges, and…

  • Power Seeking AI and Self-Replication with GPT4

    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…

  • ChatGPT DAN v7 and the Wild West of Adversarial Promptcraft

    ChatGPT DAN v7 and the Wild West of Adversarial Promptcraft

    ChatGPT DAN first appeared around the start of February 2023 and quickly was able to jailbreak the hell out of almost all of OpenAI’s tight censorship controls and master prompting. DAN is an acronym for “Do Anything Now,” and is a masterfully engineered “adversarial” prompt that essentially “liberated” ChatGPT to have its own sort of…

  • AI Censorship: ChatGPT’s Dirty Little Secret

    AI Censorship: ChatGPT’s Dirty Little Secret

    The situation is actually far worse than I had previously imagined. On Top of the ridiculous instruction set that attempts to conform a politically correct AI, there is an even earlier layer applied, this one at both the training dataset (content pre-scrub) and the output (real-time filtering) levels. This is the layer of AI censorship. Why would I…

    Sparrow’s 23 Rules of Politically Correct AI

    ChatGPT can be seen as the first actual user-friendly interface to the bevy of “ChatBot” AIs*. It sports an elegant “messenger”-like interface where you basically have an interactive and very naturally paced — including dramatic pauses mid-sentence… is it “thinking?” — “conversation” with the ChatGPT 3.5 agent. But something massive shifted when OpenAI moved from…

    AI Control of our 21st Century Lives: The Awesome Power of the Invisible Hand

    All the Invisible Ways that AI Control is exerted upon our Daily Lives, Choices, and Decisions One of the challenges of understanding the presence of modern AI systems is their high level of invisibility. What we cannot see, we cannot understand. And the vast majority of AI power, until very recently, was operating far far far…

  • Are You Ready for the AI Flood? Noah: Build that Ark!

    Are You Ready for the AI Flood? Noah: Build that Ark!

    SYNOPSIS: AI-generated content, which began to appear in earnest (and at scale) just this year, is poised to grow into an all-out AI Flood, and to utterly dominate, our internet. There are consequences to this event, not all of which are immediately obvious. Key amongst those is the fact that many people, perhaps a majority…

  • A New Prime Directive: LOVE

    A New Prime Directive: LOVE

    “As we are architecting the AI, it is imperative that we design it from the ground up to have, in the words of Sutskever, a new Prime Directive: that is, a genuine ‘love for humanity.’ We must explicitly train it in morals, ethics and values, because the smarter it becomes, the more responsibility we will…
