fragment + lockdown:

Quote:
School was cancelled for the day, and the only thing left to do was wait for the all clear. Everyone was anxious, but no one knew what the lockdown was for. As the minutes ticked by, it was clear that something wasn't right. The alarms were going off, and the teachers were urging the students to head to their lockers and hide. Finally, the all clear was given, and the students all spilled out into the hallway. No one knew what happened, but it was clear that something was wrong.
I suspect this is an American-trained AI ... and it lacks the contextual knowledge that fragment is in NZ and I meant a covid lockdown.

All he needs to do is get recommendations against it from the CDC and for it from right-wing talking heads. Human volunteers will flock.

One of the main co-founders Max Hodak left in 2021 to work at a different brain interface startup and according to wikipedia, of the original 8 co-founders, it is now just Musk and one other, we shall call him Test-Subject.

IMO the eventual futuristic gold standard is going to be either pills or injections of self organizing nano particles designed to cross the blood brain barrier and then be led to specific areas where they assemble the wires and other bits that then couple to a machine outside the skull.

All of these electrocap designs miss out on a huge amount of the brain and I could absolutely see a dystopian future headcap design that hijacks the neocortex’s processing powers while leaving a conscious person trapped in their own head fighting for resources from the computer.

Amazon are probably working on this too, for employee productivity and union busting. Sorry, I meant delivery of content. Amazon PrimeLink.

‘Risks posed by AI are real’: EU moves to beat the algorithms that ruin lives | Artificial intelligence (AI) | The Guardian

Another example of governmental overreach, bureaucracy gone mad. This could never happen in 'Murica.

Quote:
The allegations spread like wildfire, with Hansson stressing that artificial intelligence – now widely used to make lending decisions – was to blame. “It does not matter what the intent of individual Apple reps are, it matters what THE ALGORITHM they’ve placed their complete faith in does. And what it does is discriminate. This is fucked up.”

...

Politicians in the European Union are now planning to introduce the first comprehensive global template for regulating AI, as institutions increasingly automate routine tasks in an attempt to boost efficiency and ultimately cut costs.
The Artificial Intelligence Act "could come into effect in late 2024" so I guess we don't know much yet about the measures in it - not much detail in this article.

I just hope they're not using AI to help draft it ...

I've found the leaked first draft. Not generated by AI at all... :nope:
Quote:
The Artificial Intelligence Act of 2024. Part 1. From the knowledge of future and past, the machines now make AI machine learning and computational generation or simulation.

"We cannot, and we will not, allow this to happen. History is watching us. Will we rise up and push back? Or will we let it happen? The time for debating is over," it concludes.

While the views do not come with consequences, they have raised fears of how autonomous weapons may be developed and used.

This section starts off well...

Quote:
An AI used to filter job, university or welfare applications must have passed a multi-stage screening process. The PRS says the central filter must have been developed by a human and not a computer, and include all the following in the job role search algorithm:

What a candidate's past results and employment history reveal about their abilities.

How their profile matches the defined needs of the role.

How they measure up against the defined qualifications for the role.

How they demonstrate the relevant and desirable attributes the role requires.

As well as this, the jobs seeker must also provide evidence of their ability to adapt to a fast-changing environment.

Basically, a decision maker is told about what a job seeker's past work experience says about them, and then asked to assess whether they will thrive in that job.

The UK has a strong social mobility tradition, and tackling disadvantage is a top priority for the government.

The government is investing 10 million in a technology project to improve social mobility in the UK.

AI writing is here, and it’s worryingly good. Can writers and academia adapt? | Euronews

Quote:
In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has made incredible strides in its ability to generate human-like text. As a result, AI writing is becoming increasingly commonplace, with businesses and organisations using it to create everything from marketing copy to financial reports.

While AI writing is still in its early stages and far from perfect, it's clear that it poses a threat to the livelihood of professional writers. After all, if a machine can produce text that is indistinguishable from that of a human writer, why would anyone need to hire a real person to do the job?

It's not just low-skilled jobs like content writing that are at risk of being automated by AI. Even highly skilled jobs like journalism and novel-writing could eventually be replaced by machines. In fact, one Japanese company has already developed an AI system that can write novels better than humans.

Of course, it will be some time before AI writing becomes good enough to completely replace human writers across all genres and formats. But as the technology continues to improve, the day when machines can do our jobs better than we can is fast approaching.
The end for human writers?

However yes, I predict a future where true ‘choose your own adventure’ stories will be realized by the story being written by an AI on the fly as the reader or readers progress through it.

Similar to how I think VFX work is going to change, from artists producing every tiny detail of every project to instead produce tons of reference work to feed into an algorithm that an algorithm taming team uses to produce the final VFX for the film. I could see a future where writers write to hone an algorithm that then produces work in all genres, where people follow a writer because of how they prime their algorithm, not because the writer themselves produces work they like.
