The word you're looking for is astroturfing.

Small amount of redditors can influence thousands of the morons until the "discussion" is a bunch of people in a circlejerk where everyone gets to be mad and validated.

I sincerely hope more people in the world have the ability to critically think than I am seeing on the internet.

I disagree with that open letter because the US doesn't have the ability to control China from doing the same research without going to war. So it's prisoner's dilemma and we don't have much choice to either continue advancing the technology ourselves or shoot ballistic missiles at China if they start doing the same and start getting scarily good at it. We'd rather not get to that point.

Lmao bro I'm not skimming your single sentence original comment. I hate people that hide behind ambiguity and poor communication as a shield for their bullshit. You're riding a hype train and you keep an ambiguous line between "some definition of AGI perhaps in the near future" and "god is being created".

That's quite the goalpost you've moved at your own convenience.You're very disingenuous. Quit your bullshit homie. If your original statement was able to be interpreted in so many ways, communicate better.

We're on the same page that a hypothetically hyper-intelligent system could be "god-like". We are completely diverged in how implicitly confident you are about this occurring with ChatGPT, regardless that "you aren't claiming any of this with a certainty".

It's pretty bold that say you're tired of everyone saying the creation of a god is hype, and then to say, oh yeah but I'm not 100% sure on that, I'm being realistic.

Are you referring to something unique to ChatGPT/LLM? What happens during the training of neural networks is not a blackbox. Little bit of chain rule calculus for fitting to a reduced error. Understanding the final network outside of anything but performance metrics is

It's an interesting framework and would be worthwhile from an academic perspective.

In reality one of the benefits of those simple and crude rules is exactly that. When you start setting intangible rules such as "aim for the ever-moving target of the latest in human morality", you are leaving a lot of room for interpretation. It may also set a tone of "ethics by majority opinion" which isn't exactly great. I would also take care to not increase computation, this approach that requires creating outputs from various personalities and coming to a consensus of a solution sounds time consuming.

Finally, there's always the concern that selecting from a population of notable humans to align the AI could result in unintended consequences. You are talking about people that rose to the highest ranks of status among humans and weren't afraid to push boundaries. There are some risks in aligning an AI to that.
