Artificial intelligence and quantum computing will benefit each other in the future when they are fully mature.

In their quest to either destroy us or adopt us as cute pets.

Do you think they’ll neuter us to control our numbers ? Or we’ll live like in a zoo for robots to come visit us ?

With collapsing birth rates worldwide, how do you know an AI hasn’t already influenced our reproduction, at least using cultural and economic levers…

> how do you know an AI hasn’t already influenced our reproduction

Oh, we don't really need an AI to do that to humanity. We did it to ourselves, because it is great shareholder value.

No need to be toxic. It’s just idle “what if” type speculation. It’s fun to think about.

Did I strike a nerve?


Willinton06 t1_j4job0a wrote

Nah I actually get you, it is fun to think about, but supposedly sperm counts hammer been dropping for longer than we’ve had computers so AI couldn’t be the reason

Why would AI have any motivations?

Maybe it’ll learn to. Remember that we don’t know how our consciousness works either.

There are a lot of benefits to be made if you can control the way the atoms are arranged in a material.

For example if you put all the atoms in a lattice (sort of like a 3D mesh) you get a crystal, if all the atoms in that crystal are carbon you get a Diamond.

But if those same atoms of carbon are all a mess you get coal. So, arrangement matters.

This AI’s are being trained to give us models of the properties that materials would have if we arrange the atoms in different shapes.

Maybe if we make them this way they become more conductive of electricity, or in that other way it makes it more bendy or stretchy or hard.

It is really cool work in my opinion.


Ricky_Rollin t1_j4kq059 wrote

Stupid question here but is this perhaps the first steps into “matter synthesis”. The ability to create just about anything by re-arranging the atoms out of thin air?


megatronchote t1_j4kz3d2 wrote

It is not a stupid question.

Whilst the goal would be to produce those materials in reality and later down the line even mass produce them, there are a few hurdles to overcome.

You can arrange atoms one by one with current technology but as you might imagine that doesn’t scale, so you need a chemical process that produces the desired output, and that can be tricky, to put it mildly.

So, since the efforts and resourses to create a new way to sythetize new materials are huge, the benefit of AI predicted models come in the form of estimating which possible materials have the properties that we are seeking, so less money goes to waste developing ways to create them.

But we are very far away from a Star Trek replicator, sadly.

“The newly discovered structures were formed by a process called self-assembly, in which a material's molecules organize themselves into unique patterns.”

Hopefully these nanostructures make their way into 3d printing as infill patterns.

AI, point it at covid to find some kind of solution. I know it's more complicated than that, but if we could use ai for something that's needed these days...


eldedomedio t1_j4gucvk wrote

Ahhh, an application of AI that I can get behind. Sick of seeing it used by opportunists to supplant and exploit human creativity (sometimes illegally).


megatronchote t1_j4hi0pg wrote

Well one could argue that it is not the creative part that AI would erase, only the work. And then you could say well there’s art in the technique, fair enough, but there’s also an endless amount of tweaking that you can do in for example Stable Diffussion.

It is sort of the same question as “Are DJs who compose their own songs in a computer really musicians ?” Well most succesful DJs know how to play some instrument, mainly piano.

So in conclusion it is mostly fear what makes us against this innovations
