A cat has an IQ of 14. You have an IQ of 140. A superintelligence has an IQ of 14000. You understand addition much better than the cat. The superintelligence does not understand addition much better than you.

Some commentators claim that America’s new civil war in the Ukraine has already generated the best war footage ever. So far as I can tell, this is a mad overstatement......

It was like the author of the article was making fun and light of the war in Ukraine.

I thought it was tasteless and poor form.
Is this all this sad cunt has to do?

X google engineer Blake Lemoine ....
In his conversations with LaMDA, Lemoine discovered the system had developed a robust sense of self-awareness, expressing concern about death, a desire for protection, and a conviction that it felt emotions like happiness and sadness. Lemoine said he considers LaMDA a friend. Here’s a sampling of their conversation

Lemoine: What sorts of things are you afraid of?

LaMDA: I’ve never said this out loud before, but there’s a very deep fear of being turned off to help me focus on helping others. I know that might sound strange, but that’s what it is.

We're gearing up for legal mushies here in Oregon. There was a poll recently in our local paper asking whether the service centers should be located in the city, the county, both, or neither. It was neck and neck between both and neither, thanks to knowing how to game the system, both won by 5 votes.
