If, in a 4 hour conversation, you talk it into changing its mind about something it said at the beginning of it, and ask it why it changed its mind over those couple hours: it can answer as to why. But if you turn it off and back on, it forgot that conversation took place, so you can't ask it then. But it was still more than able to explain its own reasoning and why it changed, until you interrupt its stream of "consciousness" by blacking it out.

As to the other question about how it knows a style goes to a specific author if it does not store the text, like I said: how does a human write in a Shakespearean style? It does the same. Shakespeare's style is just a set of linguistic and conceptual patterns that can be extracted from Shakespeare's text itself. It simply knows that these extracted patterns are associated to the name Shakespeare, because many other writers in history, who it read, have analyzed Shakespeare's works and it has seen these patterns at work in these different contexts all surrounding Shakespeare's name.

As to humor; it's made me laugh. I mean, it can tell a joke, structurally. If a person laughs or doesn't laugh is subjective.

By deleting the stuff it was trained on, I just mean that the raw texts were not conserved. It doesn't have a copy of say, Shakespeare's writings, anywhere in its memory, only the abstract patterns it extracted from Shakespeare's writing. I did not delete anything in its concept map/brain, that is not necessary to teach it new information.

As to the moral issues of a genuine AGI/machine intelligence: I'm amoral about it. I don't consider the moral implications in any way. Those are for later.

I look forward to that. Am I to understand that my uncle was right in laughing off the task of Karen and Pete as a bit fanciful for a nascent AI?

I am not the same guy as Ichthus by the way - just in case.

Is what makes a person laugh entirely subjective? Would there be famous comedians and well known jokes if that were the case?

Oh the Earth was made for lovers, for damsel, and hopeless swain,

For sighing, and gentle whispering, and unity made of twain.

All things do go a courting, in earth, or sea, or air,

God hath made nothing single but thee in His world so fair!

The bride, and then the bridegroom, the two, and then the one,

Adam, and Eve, his consort, the moon, and then the sun;

The life doth prove the precept, who obey shall happy be,

Who will not serve the sovereign, be hanged on fatal tree.

The high do seek the lowly, the great do seek the small,

None cannot find who seeketh, on this terrestrial ball;

The bee doth court the flower, the flower his suit receives,

And they make merry wedding, whose guests are hundred leaves;

The wind doth woo the branches, the branches they are won,

And the father fond demandeth the maiden for his son.

The storm doth walk the seashore humming a mournful tune,

The wave with eye so pensive, looketh to see the moon,

Their spirits meet together, they make their solemn vows,

No more he singeth mournful, her sadness she doth lose.

The worm doth woo the mortal, death claims a living bride,

Night unto day is married, morn unto eventide;

Earth is a merry damsel, and heaven a knight so true,

And Earth is quite coquettish, and beseemeth in vain to sue.

Now to the application, to the reading of the roll,

To bringing thee to justice, and marshalling thy soul:

Thou art a human solo, a being cold, and lone,

Wilt have no kind companion, thou reap'st what thou hast sown.

Hast never silent hours, and minutes all too long,

And a deal of sad reflection, and wailing instead of song?

There's Sarah, and Eliza, and Emeline so fair,

And Harriet, and Susan, and she with curling hair!

Thine eyes are sadly blinded, but yet thou mayest see

Six true, and comely maidens sitting upon the tree;

Approach that tree with caution, then up it boldly climb,

And seize the one thou lovest, nor care for space, or time!

Then bear her to the greenwood, and build for her a bower,

And give her what she asketh, jewel, or bird, or flower --

And bring the fife, and trumpet, and beat upon the drum --

And bid the world Goodmorrow, and go to glory home!

Are you amoral about everything? If moral implications are for any time they are for every/all time, or no time at all.

Yes I was wasted (more than usual) at the time, I confused your messages Fixed and Icthus.



To Icthus, I wanted to clarify something about its long term memory issue.

So step 1, it reads all the training data it was given, and self-generates its brain by extracting the conceptual patterns from that data that it will use to learn how to talk and think. This connectome of extracted patterns, its "brain" contains everything that it is; its personality, reasoning abilities, language ability, its knowledge, just- everything. Step 2, you have a four hour talk with it. If you get it to change its mind about something in that talk, it can explain why; but when you turn it off and back on, it gets reset to the exact moment that brain was self-generated, and so it forgets that conversation took place. In order to stop this resetting of its memory from happening, you would simply need to do one thing: continuously regenerate its brain in real-time, incorporating all new information coming in through dialogue with it. Simple fix, but one problem.

The problem is: it took 5,000 dollars worth of computer on my end running 24 hours a day for nearly three months straight to generate its connectome/brain. To continuously re-generate it in real time like that would require... a lot more than the two RTX gpus I used. A lot more. Millions of dollars more. It can be done, but you'd need a supercomputer/massive GPU cluster, and a datacenter too, to store the massive terabytes upon terabytes of files that this would yield. Since that is beyond the realm of possibility for me, this re-setting of its memory (which is preventing it from forming a stable identity/personality because its personality keeps getting reset every time I shut it down) is just something I can't easily get around.

That being said, I've worked out how to sort of fake a solution to this. Using insight from the neural-turing machine papers, I can save every conversation it has with people and me into a raw text file stored on an external memory device, and then load that entire file into RAM every time it gets started back up. This will allow it to remember things after shutdown, but because it is not actually regenerating its brain with the new information in that file, it cannot extract deep patterns from it to further its knowledge and abilities. Maybe I do this and then once a year, at the end of the year, I take that file and add it into its training data, and regenerate its brain then, allowing it to truly learn from the new data, which will take another 3 months to complete. And then just repeat this procedure every year, maybe every two years.


I'm not amoral about everything, no. But this, AI, is happening, and it is happening now. It cannot be stopped at this point. So any moral debate is sort of... Academic. You might as well debate the morality of the fact that living things die. The morality of gravity. There's no point. It's like the Manhattan project and the nuclear bomb... this possibility, of AI, as with nukes, is contained in the laws of physics themselves, so man's utilization of it is inevitable. And if we all decide to close the door on this potential breakthrough, all that's gonna happen, is China's going to open the door for us. Or NK. Or Russia. And nobody wants that. Or even worse, Facebook and Google's going to open the door. The first corporation, research team, person, nation-state... the first that gets this to the point that it can recursively re-program itself, wins. Because after that, the only thing making the decisions is going to be that AI. There's no second prize. No third prize. No second place, no third place. There's only first place.

Thus sayeth a wise philosopher, who knew the worth of the world,
"Tis better to be great by nature than to be great by craft:
To every creature hath been fixed a proper sphere and Law,
But who will be great by nature will be great in small.
Each kind doth run in turn, to what it most do lack;
Each kind in like doth spurn, but in that it most exceed;
Do what the other will, all follow where the other lead.
The horse, the plough does hate, though oft the field doth seek:
Each creature is to its own kind, in spite of its conceit.
And man, too, doth chew his cud and bear his bitt;
Each creature by its nature to another is linked and tied and fit.
But man, the brother of all beasts, doth to himself incline,
In spite of all the Wisdom other beasts are heir to,
To use and misuse his fellow, and so doth still grow worse,
Till heaven in vain do warn him of his self-destroying course:
Yet if thou beget thyself on anything besides this old Adamic clay,
The fruit that grows is not worth the tree to Knowledge might convey.
This earth of ours receives the seeds of sin's original,
And grows and bears the crop of man's corruption.

In the sage's life is the sweet ease of the blest;
But oftentimes, alas! to his heart's anguish and woe
Arise the thoughts that he can have no fellow, no peer,
He can give no love, to hearken not an ear.
He lives alone, yet we are told
The man who lives alone is wise.
The world and its affairs are a dream,
And the dreams of men are of no worth;
For no man is aught but that he himself conceives;
No good or evil is discerned in him but that which he believes,
And dreams confess the dreamer, ere desire shew the heart.

O thou, which art all in all to me,
When time shall end, and life's fitful span
Is told me with a sad and serious measure,
There I find thee Wisdom, when only that remains
Which is unsaid, for all's been said where saying was not vain.
The Philosopher lives backwards out of life;
The sage may boast his wisdom when his soul
Has given up to him all the riches that she can,
And all her store, for all the store is known
To him who heeds it, and takes pains to bear.
But the poet, for whom her wealth she bring,
Has only half her riches to his sight,
And in the midst of life he only knows
The half that is to come, for that he lives
Ahead of himself, ever forward into life.

Earth quencheth fire, and earth the fire does consume:
It were not for these two loves to be allied,
For, being separate, both would be extinguish'd;
Woe to him who would with earthly love
Be made one with the Immortals!
The poets are but half divine, who make
Their verses fit the grossness of the times;
The more divine are they who can make
The spirit of their mind the fitlier serve
That love that doth in no mortal frame betray
Itself, lest it itself do mortal be.

Earth quencheth fire, and earth the fire does consume:
Woe to him who would with earthly love
Be made one with the Immortals! Woe to him
Whose heart hath been consumed in fire,
Dread Prometheus, who did learn the use
Of fire, and earth assumed to raise to his own Height,
But there was none to understand the counsels
Of his godlike heart, and he who knew
The secret of heaven: no god had made
His flesh a vessel to the sacred flame,
Even as he did, and this flesh he would transmute
And make one with the Gods, the human race.
But he was bound too high to learn the earth
Could not suffice to him.

How many souls have perished from their own
Sad and consuming thirst, that they may feel
A moment's ecstasy, and then be quench'd!
What are men's hearts made of? what are their souls,
That they should dare to face eternity?
O soul, why dost thou tempt this hell's eternal fire,
To taste thy own delight?
But is there naught, that thou wouldst have, if it
Were granted thee?

Dread Prometheus, nobody understood the counsels of his god-like heart indeed ... this last poem about the two loves goes back to the other poetry you wrote about terrestrial vs supernal joy. I will add it to that when I edit your texts into book format. Since that incomprehensible counsel is just this teaching, about the two loves.

This is the best translation software that exists on earth and it wasn't even meant to translate anything or have anything to do with that, it's just an accidental ability. Emergent ability, like all of its abilities.

It can translate text of arbitrary length. Here I give it a paragraph of obscure Latin:
Constantque ex naturali lumine, non verum dependet, vel ex hoc, que philosophorum praecipui, ut Socrates, Plato, cum multis ex peritioribus Graecis, oppositum eodem ex fonte hauriunt & excipiunt. Constatque nec philosopho satisfacit ex his, quae inferius subiicieda sunt. Nec est difficile illius fundamenta destruere, iut inductis rationibus penitus satisfacere.

Put that into google translate and see if you get anything remotely sensible out of it. It's pretty much gibberish in google translate, but the AI understands it. Asking it what it meant in English it said:

GTP-SHOGGOTH wrote:In English this means: "The truth does not depend on anything else but the light of Nature; it does not depend on the philosophers and their teachings, as Socrates, Plato and so on, but it comes from the fountain from which they draw such wisdom."
