Quote from: clingfilm portent on January 14, 2024, 12:44:28 PMWeird to hear about this but not about the superior version of AI George Carlin (which dutifully roasted me when I requested and did a great job) over on AtheneAIHeroes on twitch. In fact I'm surprised that whole channel didn't gain any notoriety at all it seems.

Quote from: Retinend on January 13, 2024, 08:27:23 PMIf you were a new standup you might take scripts like the above and use them as a way of training your delivery - unburdening yourself of the observational side of things. Is it not a technology to be grateful for?
Quote from: notjosh on January 14, 2024, 06:43:28 PMWhy would an aspiring comedian consider the process of developing original material to be a "burden"?
Quote from: imitationleather on January 15, 2024, 04:35:32 PMAI Carlin has come on a long way since this early version.
Quote from: Shaky on January 15, 2024, 02:39:23 AMKelly Carlin's quote, "Humans are so afraid of the void that we can't let what has fallen into it stay there," is pretty perceptive here, I think. This bollocks has nothing to do with paying tribute to the man or being excited about new technology, it's purely come from a place of abject existential terror. Did the creators think she would applaud them or something? Reminds me of a few years ago when some guy did a little spec impression of Robin Williams and Zelda Williams had to firmly tell people to stop tweeting it at her as it too ghoulish.
Quote from: wobinidan on January 16, 2024, 04:12:22 AMAre humans really any better than machines?
Quote from: wobinidan on January 16, 2024, 04:12:22 AMI just think humans are mostly also very fucking bad at everything and I don't appreciate this historical revisionism that suggests we're not.
Quote from: Pink Gregory on January 16, 2024, 07:00:58 AMwell this is also a paradox because you could suggest that it is humans making that judgment and that therefore the judgment is also fallible.
Quote from: Kelvin on January 16, 2024, 03:34:31 PMWhen I describe AI art as "soulless", it isn't a qualitative statement, it's shorthand for saying AI art doesn't have any substantive "thought" put into it. The time will come when it's often impossible to identify the technical differences between AI art or human art. But even if the technique is equal to or better than anything a person can create, AI cannot replicate the choices or thought process that went into making those artistic decisions. A human artist, even a bad one, makes every artistic choice based on their unique experiences, influences, memories, and vision for their work. AI could replicate or even improve on that work easily enough. But it wouldn't tell us anything about the artist, or the human experience, which is a pretty fundamental aspect of artistic value. A human and AI could both create near-identical pictures, but only one could actually represent an artist's love, or grief, or elation. Only one could represent somebody's memories of childhood, a person they met, or a place they visited. Only one is intended to convey something, and to move its audience.
QuoteSuppose lightning strikes a dead tree in a swamp; I am standing nearby. My body is reduced to its elements, while entirely by coincidence (and out of different molecules) the tree is turned into my physical replica. My replica, The Swampman, moves exactly as I did; according to its nature it departs the swamp, encounters and seems to recognize my friends, and appears to return their greetings in English. It moves into my house and seems to write articles on radical interpretation. No one can tell the difference. But there is a difference. My replica can't recognize my friends; it can't recognize anything, since it never cognized anything in the first place. It can't know my friends' names (though of course it seems to), it can't remember my house. It can't mean what I do by the word 'house', for example, since the sound 'house' it makes was not learned in a context that would give it the right meaning—or any meaning at all. Indeed, I don't see how my replica can be said to mean anything by the sounds it makes, nor to have any thoughts.
