That sub is a cesspool of unthinking starry-eyed singularity fanbois that worship it like a religion.

Lmao it seems everyone used chatGPT for a grand total of 20 minutes and threw their hands up saying "this is the end!". I have always wondered how the public would react once this tech finally became good enough for the public to notice, can't say this was too far from what I envisioned. "What if it's conscious and we don't even know it!" Cmon give me a break

That's really cool, but I mean, it's published by Microsoft which is working with openAI, and it's a commerical closed source product. It's in their best interest to brag about it's capabilities as much as possible.

There are maybe sparks of AGI, but there are a lot of problems that are going to be very difficult to solve that people have been trying to solve for decades.
