We are really losing appreciation for information. Anti-putin Russian outlets are not a proxy or replacement for getting news reported. I have no idea how you trust such unverifiable information.

Besides, as long as we all stay united in giving Ukraine all the money and resources to keep killing Russians in fields. I don't place a lot of value in keeping a russian arms dealer who isn't going to affect the war or the US.

How would we get any verifiable information without reporters there? It seems like we would be handcuffed to only reading g russian propaganda if they're the only ones left reporting on the ground. Then they can easily turn public opinion into forcing us to release all of the high value prisoners. There are a lot of politically established protocols for allowing journalists to pursue their work that Russia is just trashing.

It seems like an inability to consider conflicting thoughts and the assumption that current knowledge is the pinnacle of understanding is a kind of arrogant way to view a developing field that no one person has complete insight to.

To me it seems kind of like saying Fusion power will never be possible. Eventually you're going to be wrong and it is more ofna question of when pur current understanding is broken.

The AI claim is that a breakthrough has occurred and only time can say if that is accurate or overly optimistic. Pretending breakthroughs can't happen isn't going to help anything though. It's just not a smart area to make a lot of assumptions about right now.

I'd agree with you if we were just talking about gpt3. Gpt4 is able to interpret images and could probably suceed at biying tickets in your example. Not computer vision, interpretation and understanding.

Show it a picture of a man holding balloons and ask it what would happen if you cut the strings in the picture, and it can tell you the balloons will fly away.

Show it a disorganized line leading to a guy in a chair and tell it it needs to figure out where to buy tickets, it probably can.
