I think GPT-4 is going to be another huge leap. It will be so capable that some people are going to get genuinely scared that AI will replace jobs in just a matter of years. The engineering community will be high on hopium. Singularitarianism will boom. VC funding will boom. Most researchers will start accepting that AGI is the ultimate goal, and it's imminent. We'll start seeing more mainstream news coverage. It's gonna be wild.

and we'll still live shitty lives unless someone like Yang can get any traction, which would require the majority to be educated on the topic, which won't happen.

It won't happen overnight, but it will happen. Tell people about it. I do. Not everybody is able or willing to listen, but some people's eyes just light up when you tell them what's coming. Spread the word friend.

what do you think I've been doing for the last 6 years? It feels hopeless, all I get is people arguing with me, people seem to prefer to stay ignorant and separate so they can pursue their own personal corrupt desires without any restraint because people are short-sighted fucked up pieces of shit. The rich control everything and keep the masses ignorant with such superb skill that we are way too distracted and divided to organize ourselves and change things in any significant way. Many Republicans are religious nutjobs that can't be reasoned with, and/or old and wealthy and thus don't want to risk investing a single penny into society.

You think whatever Andrew yang is saying is the way to do that?

Not exactly, he doesn't have a comprehensive plan to totally fix everything in the long-run and create an optimal technocracy, he's just the closest.

You think ONE language model is going to cause all of this? What if it's not even THAT much better than it's predecessor (I mean it could be, but it could also not be, time will tell)? The AI researcher community hasn't even reached a consensus that language models are the way forward, so this comment strikes me as a bit optimistic. But like I said, time will tell if you're right or not.
