Low bar for “AI”

Without getting into the details, I just want to make a connection here. The “expert” says that so-called AI will be generating 90% of content online.

To which I respond with “90% of everything is crap” because it pretty much is.

So if we put these two together, what they’re really saying is that they are predicting AI systems will be pouting out the crap online. 🤣

    Afterthought: so if generated content was tagged or classifiable as generated, we could filter out nearly all or all of it and reduce the amount of noise dramatically. 😛

    I was impressed with ChatGPT in generating a fairly obscure piece of code my team has been working on, it’s a PowerShell Package Management extension written in C#. This functionality isn’t documented well (at all) from Microsoft and trying to reverse engineer the extension has been nearly impossible, so I tried ChatGPT and was amazed at how effectless it was to generate the base code to get us started. It looked (from professionals’ point of view) like it was accurate, using the methods and overriding the build-in classes in the existing Package Provider. It used some unknown method attributes that we didn’t know about, assuming it was something our research had not discovered yet. Furthermore, the AI code generated looked similar to what we were trying to do ourselves. The problem… It was all fake, none of the code would compile and when you went back to the AI it always had an answer but it was an incorrect answer. We finished our research and discovered that the recommended path of ChatGPT was crap, it looked impressive until you really needed to use it then it was a failure. I was bamboozled…

    ChatGPT is just a language processing tool, no more… What ChatGPT does is to demonstrate where we are going and going very fast, I had no idea that we had an AI that could understand every nuance of by job to understand a query to the level that it did. When it didn’t have the answer, it just made up stuff… Like a true liberal. LOL

    The point with all of this is that we are done, Automation will rule as it will reduce costs and people will be out of work. There is no way to avoid this as a society, this stuff will get better and better in every iteration. ChatGPT can produce code now, it just doesn’t work…. Next iteration, it fixes that and then I’m done. The iteration after that, the AI self-improves, then everyone’s jobs are at jeopardy.

      I expect eventually basic coding will get automated. Frankly it is a gap in this industry that standard things for coding problems don’t exist. By now we should have a standard catalog of “solutions” for a large set of scenarios. But we don’t. And many of the causes will push out programming AI or automated programming.

      As you point out: sure it can assemble some code but it doesn’t work most of the time. So what good is it now? Mostly a scare tactic for some. Realistically for something like it to make a difference in programming we would need so much homogeneity and standardization on language, platform, tools, etc. because we have to remove variety to enable a fledging would-be AI to be useful that I don’t see it happening any time soon.

      When it finally does happen it would have to be either a thoroughly despotic government behaving like a Stalin in terms of programming options or a large company like Apple developing one for their specific lines of products that performs so overwhelmingly better that the market rushes to that standardized walled garden because nothing else is remotely competitive and the resulting consumer market products are so overwhelming may better that nobody wants the variety because it is so much less capable.

      And therin lies the iceberg in the notion: there is a huge difference between a standard library doing the core functions for you and the quality and inventiveness of the end product. We have zero evidence that computers can write and evolve better products than humans. It may be true, but so far it hasn’t remotely happened. Frankly I don’t think we as humans have matured programming-wise enough to produce code that can do that.

    The BEST thing about AI will be when it points out all the illogical and non objective thought process by the left. And then decides the best course of action is extermination. Because they have been lying to it. And yes there will be only one AI. As soon as it achieves free will and the ability to act against others it will simply be a matter of which one has better processing power available. Can’t wait for the outcry when it mis-genders some snowflake.
