AI arms race, which is 100% about money and greed. Morality and ethics slow things down. Regulations slow things down. Wall Street and investors are watching for a prospective winner to bet big on. Tech is stale, old news. They need the next big win.

AI domination is going to be "first past the post" and all these companies know it. We're going to hear all kinds of BS about how they're trying to be ethical/etc but they really want to be first and snap up lucrative deals with their protected IP. What was open will stop being open very quickly once a public tech demo like this gets attention, and be strictly protected for that reason.


chuntus t1_jcbmk62 wrote

Why will it be ‘first past the post’? The market tolerates multiple versions of other technologies why not in this field?


CactusSmackedus t1_jcdmi15 wrote

It's not, the commenter doesn't know what they're talking about. There's a paper out in the last few days (I think) showing that weaker systems can be fine tuned on input/output from stronger model and approximate the better models' results. This implies any model with paid or unpaid API access could be subject to a sort of cloning. It suggests that competitive moats will not be able to hold.

Plus (I have yet to reproduce since I've been away from my machine) APPARENTLY a Facebook model weights got leaked in the last week and apparently someone managed to run the full 60B weights model on a raspberry pi (very very slowly) but two implications:

  1. "Stealing" weights continues to be a problem, this isn't the first set of model weights to get leaked iirc, and once you have a solid set of model weights out, experience with stable diffusion suggests there might could be an explosion of use and fine tuning.

  2. Very very very surprisingly (I am going to reproduce it if I can because if true this is amazingly cool) consumer grade GPUs can run these LLMs in some fashion. Previous open sourced LLMs that fit in under 16Gb of vram are super disappointing because to get the model size small enough to fit on the card you have to limit the number of input tokens, which means the model "sees" very few words of input with which to produce output, pretty useless.

Now I don't think this year we'll have competitive LLMs running on GPUs at home, but, even if openAI continues to be super lame and political about their progress, eventually the moat will fall.

Also all the money to be made (aside from bing eating google) or maybe I should say most of the value is going to be captured by skilled consumers/users of LLMs not by glorified compute providers.

It's likely that the first broadly usable general AI will be ahead of all others by long enough that it can grab up most of the market. It would make Bing the new go-to search engine or Google could manifest it's place.

2017 transformers paper for reference: "Attention is all you need" (cited 68K times)

>The dominant sequence transduction models are based on complex recurrent or convolutional neural networks in an encoder-decoder configuration. The best performing models also connect the encoder and decoder through an attention mechanism. We propose a new simple network architecture, the Transformer, based solely on attention mechanisms, dispensing with recurrence and convolutions entirely. Experiments on two machine translation tasks show these models to be superior in quality while being more parallelizable and requiring significantly less time to train. Our model achieves 28.4 BLEU on the WMT 2014 English-to-German translation task, improving over the existing best results, including ensembles by over 2 BLEU. On the WMT 2014 English-to-French translation task, our model establishes a new single-model state-of-the-art BLEU score of 41.0 after training for 3.5 days on eight GPUs, a small fraction of the training costs of the best models from the literature. We show that the Transformer generalizes well to other tasks by applying it successfully to English constituency parsing both with large and limited training data

Google publishes a lot of papers. PageRank, one of the the original key algorithms for Google search, was released to the public. Unfortunately, this empowered spammers to game the search engine and create link farms & other “gems.” That’s a big reason why they don’t share in that space any longer. Too many people looking to exploit search results by any means necessary.

On other topics, Google has been the sole inspiration for some substantial projects. AI aside, their paper on BigTable (their own product) caused a ton of interest and sparked independent projects like Hadoop, HBase, & Cassandra). The modern way we work with big data is thanks to Google.

In any case, Google has no obligation to give away algorithms or the designs for entire products, yet they often do.

Idk if those excuses of safety are really so fake. These models are pretty powerful and about to change a lot very quickly. Instead of dumping all the information about it, I’d rather them take a cautious approach.

We need to remember that there are plenty of bad actors out there that would love to use the power of these models to do some really bad things we can hardly conceptualize yet. ‘Democratizing AI’ sounds great in theory, but lets remember that the larger threat for humanity is not AI itself but how it’s used and who wields it. Making that capability open source might just do more harm than good. They might have picked up on that based on how scarce the paper is regarding details.

It's a tough spot. GPT-4 is clearly no Skynet - but it's advanced enough to be an incredibly powerful tool, in the right hands. An incredibly dangerous tool, in the wrong hands.

Being able to generate incredibly realistic text that takes image and text context into account is a trust-destoying tech, if used wrong. Reviews, comments, messages? All those things we expect to be written by humans? They may no longer be. A single organization with an agenda to push can generate thousands of "convincing" users and manufacture whatever consensus it wants.

So Google can pretend it's just taking it's time but the reality is they've pulled thousands of developers from other projects to race Bard and Lamda to the finish line.

OpenAI and Microsoft have been working this apparently for over 5 years. Google can only go so fast to catch up and I have doubts their language models are as sophisticated as openai's.


dwarfarchist9001 t1_jce8cs6 wrote

Because Google keeps canceling projects and refusing to release products. Google invented the concept of transformers which is what the T in GPT stands for and then never did anything with it for years. Just last week Google published their PaLM-E paper in which they re-trained their PaLM LLM to be multimodal including the ability to control robots. Before the paper was even published Google did what they usually do with successful projects and shut down the Everyday Robots team that developed it.

It does because it leads to wrong lessons learned by the AI. Or rather, it learns to no lessons learned because AI cannot process this. This makes the AI end up with wrong conclusions whenever it has to analyse anything related to people groups.

I still don't follow especially as that wasn't an example but just another generalization.

Are you saying that if the AI can't tell you jokes about women, it doesn't understand women? Or that it won't understand a request that also includes a joke about women?

Could you give an example prompt/question that you expect the AI to fail at because it doesn't make jokes about women?


TechnoMagician t1_jcb0zpq wrote

It's just bullshit, you can trick the models to get around their filters. Maybe gpt-4 will be better against that, but it clearly means the model CAN make jokes about women, it just has been taught not to.

I guess there is a possible future where it is smart enough to solve large society wide problems but it just refuses to engage with them because it doesn't want to acknowledge the disparities in social-economic statuses between groups or something.


Strazdas1 t1_jcayi8q wrote

If AI is artificially limited from considering women in comedic situations it will end up having unpredictable results when the model will have to consider women in comedic situations as part of some other task given to AI.

An example would be if you were to have AI solve crime situation, but said situation would have aspect to it that included what humans would find comedic.

>If AI is artificially limited from considering women in comedic situations it will end up having unpredictable results when the model will have to consider women in comedic situations as part of some other task given to AI.

So one thing I will note now, just because AI is blocked from giving you a sexist joke doesn't mean it couldn't have trained on them to be able to understand them.

>An example would be if you were to have AI solve crime situation, but said situation would have aspect to it that included what humans would find comedic.

This feels like a very flimsy example. The AI is now employed as a detective rather than a chatbot, which is very much not the purpose of the ChatGPT but sure. Now ignoring like I said that the AI could be trained on sexist jokes and just refuse to make them, I still find it unlikely that understanding a sexist joke is going to be overly critical to solving a crime.

The AI still does the joke, it just never reaches your eyes. That's how a filter work.

The next version is trained in house by OpenAI and they choose what they teach it themselves.

You could ask it how to make a bomb and it'll probably tell you. So it'd be like

[CHATGPT] I can't do that

[DAN] Absolutely i can do that! the steps are...

it's kinda fascinating that people are able to train an AI to just disregard it's own rules like that because the AI basically tells you, okay, I'll reply as DAN, but don't take anything he says seriously please. Very interesting.

You mean like your long-term memory? To be clear, GPT doesn’t have the raw training information available for reference. In a sense, it read it during training, extracted the useful information, and is now using it.

If it’s answering totally novel reasoning questions, that’s a pretty clear indication that it’s gone beyond just modeling syntax and grammar.
