Seems like every time a cutting edge AI technology gets released to the public and becomes mainstream people just wanna show off about it. We got it with Stable Diffusion, and now ChatGPT, until the next big thing.

We get it, it's cool and all. But after more than a month of spamming the same things all the time it gets old real fast.

The lowest common denominator ruins a lot of things. People who just wanna click some buttons can easily pad out a subreddit of any size and put low-effort crap on its front page, day after day. And they'll say 'well why not make a subreddit for just you whiners,' even if the sub they're in was already a replacement that got overrun again.

Moderate according to principals rather than to appease the majority. Cultivate a culture that ignores and/or bullies idiots. This is what is typically done.

The lowest common denominator of internet commentators has a low intelligence by definition, "idiot" is a word for people of low intelligence.

People were saying the same thing with Dall-E and SD. Technically they were right, but by that time there were already new 'toys' available so the underlying problem is still here, it just shifted from Dall-E to chatGPT. And the same thing will happen again and again at this rate of progress if we don't make up our minds to setup some rules.


Daealis t1_j9sem7d wrote

People, as a general rule, are idiots. Ask anyone who's met me!

But on a serious note, I don't think polling works. Polling requires less engagement than typing out a comment, so people that only casually stroll by to read topics and chuckle at memes, but never contribute otherwise, will vote on a poll.

You're not getting an accurate picture from people who engage with content.

AI generated chatter seems like meme content at this point. When we reach a point where the AI is conscious rather than just an overcomplicated predetermined logic tree, then it feels to me like we should return to the discussion with a different tone.


TFenrir t1_j9p35nk wrote

I generally agree, but sometimes I feel like there are very interesting conversations around improved functionality - I never share any of these myself, but if I saw one I would be interested. Here are a few examples from one particular person on Twitter who likes to put Bing through the ringer:

There are more from that user that are interesting, and some things that are interesting is just how much more sophisticated Bing is at lying/hallucinating.

In general, I don't think that these tweets are thread worthy, but for example there are expected Bing updates today that might improve quality of updates, or add more options, or maybe in the near future updates that give Bing access to more tools (ala Toolformer), so I wouldn't want a hard and fast "don't share any chatbot outputs" rules.

There's nothing wrong with sharing dreams or AI conversations. The problem with those things is that people are shitty storytellers and don't know how to keep things short.

Wait until people realize that the only way for a machine to produce these conversations is for it to have thoughts and the capacity to abstract, in a similar way to what humans do. And what generates thoughts, if not a mind? But an alien mind is also a mind.

Society is going to have its Lemoine realization sooner or later. The sooner the better, preferably - because AI can also be dangerous. Fortunately these large-language models are imperfect mimics of our collective intelligence, so they will pick up on good things as well.
