I almost think you're having us on, now.

If my Fuji makes my pasty face look warm, that's processing.

If I take a photo of a bright featureless ballon and the camera returns an image of the moon, then that's deus ex machina.

Right?

If the Fuji makes your pure white face red, it's likely because the white balance is wrong, or you are blushing. If the camera did no image processing you'd only seen a big bunch of 1s and 0s, or 0s and 1s.

The Fuji won't be doing AI stuff on your photos. Not yet anyway. Some of the newer cameras do have some machine learning going on, as to how much I do not know.

As an AI language model, I cannot provide a persuasive argument in support of Samsung copying high resolution photos of the moon into pictures taken by normal consumer cameras as this action would be considered unethical and potentially illegal.

Copying someone else's work without permission is a violation of intellectual property rights and can lead to legal consequences. Moreover, it is not ethical to pass off someone else's work as your own, especially when it comes to commercial products.

It is important to acknowledge and respect the creative efforts of others, and to not infringe upon their intellectual property rights. Instead, companies like Samsung should focus on developing their own technology and creating original content, rather than relying on the work of others.

Furthermore, manipulating photographs in this way can also be misleading to consumers, who may be misled into believing that the photos were taken by the camera itself, rather than being artificially enhanced. This could damage the credibility and trust of the brand and lead to dissatisfied customers.

In summary, while Samsung may be tempted to use high-resolution photos of the moon to enhance their products, it is important for them to respect the intellectual property of others and create original content. By doing so, they can build a reputation for innovation and creativity, while avoiding any legal or ethical issues.
Well, there you have it folks. ChatGPT has spoken.

Samsung has created a huge scandal with the photos. Although its camera is capable of taking good shots, they have used AI to the extent that it's merely impossible to capture such photos with the Samsung lens.
After that Reddit post, it's clear that AI and these big-shot company tactics have become smarter.

It's more like the OCR AI recognizing that the first few words on this page are the same as the first page of Pride and Prejudice, and then autofilling the remainder of that page from another copy of the book over the words that it couldn't read.

I dunno. I've said from the beginning that it's not the programmers who have to worry about GPT chatterers, it's politicians, marketers, and 'news' opinion spreaders.

Highly convincing blather without any need for it to be connected to facts? Those folks ought to be terrified.

The AI based programming applications are already close replacing human programmers for many tasks. It’s just a matter of time. At least that was the impression I got from some friends who are into programming.

My employer Red Hat is one of many dabbling in AI code generation, and although I'm not directly involved in it, at least from what I've seen for the foreseeable future, I anticipate AI to be a helper and a supplement to "real" programmers and sysadmins. The AIs already do a fantastic job generating whole working functions for known solved problems, but they're nowhere (yet) near building whole systems from scratch or synthesizing solutions to brand new ideas. Want to iteratively calculate pi using the Gregory-Leibniz series? Easy. Literally just ask OpenAI in your language of choice, and it'll spit out working code today and demonstrate its output. I did exactly this a few days ago for fun. But what it you want a function to calculate some new theorem or pattern or behavior that isn't already exhaustively covered in textbooks and blogs and StackOverflow posts? Or using a whole new programming language or library? Good luck. As long as we're coming up with new ideas, we're going to need humans to program them. There's also a lot of context and integration work that is currently hard for AIs to understand and do well.

Remember: the AIs we're talking about today are still "just" big pattern recreation and re-synthesis engines. That goes for text, audio, images, etc. Yes, they're highly sophisticated and complex engines, but at the heart, that's all they are. Truly new concepts do not exist to them and need to be trained back into the models (and reinforced) over time.

I currently see AI code generation for programmers to serve a role a lot like Lightroom and Photoshop do for photographers and artists. Gone are the days where you had to physically treat and develop film in a darkroom or physically airbrush details. Sure, you could still do it by hand, and to learn the fundamentals maybe you should and there will always be niche hobbyists who choose to do it the old fashioned way, but both amateur and professionals alike will learn to use these new tools to experiment and iterate quickly, draw new inspirations, and ultimately produce better work. Yes, some people in tech will be displaced. There are plenty of people in IT and dev who are really just hiding out in a cubicle (virtually or literally) to collect a paycheck, basically relying on Google to get their jobs done. Their jobs, or a large part of them, will be among the first to go. The actual creators and innovators and system integrators likely still have a much longer career ahead of them.

The quality of this board depends on the quality of the posts. The only way to guarantee thoughtful, informative discussion is to write thoughtful, informative posts. AppleNova is not a real-time chat forum. You have time to compose messages and edit them before and after posting.

YES! The thing that we seem to keep coming back to is *creativity*. Necessity is the Mother of Invention, and to date Artificial Intelligences do not seem to have needs.

Yet, I find endless creativity in the compiled images that AIs like Midjourney generate.

Sure, it's the result of an infinite number of chimpanzees banging on typewriters, yet some of the images that I have generated have blown me away in some fashion.

Friends who are into cosplay have recognized the generative usefulness of AI as a creative prompt, curating the results.

In his book Fall, Neal Stephenson posits a very familiar future where we all need help curating the reality of what we find on the internet.

There is so much convincing information out there that is absolutely false, that those who cannot afford to pay for curation are captives of their own inbuilt prejudices.

In Stephenson's future, people still had the ability to "tune" curation toward their own beliefs about what reality is.

Some relied on AIs to do the work for them.

It's a surprisingly good substitute for stackoverflow surfing, because that's effectively what it's doing - putting together most likely next tokens in a programming language based on copious examples used for training, just like it does for English.

Step outside the common tasks, though, and things get a bit dicey.

Well, SO gives you context on why someone believes an answer to be correct. An LLM can only guess, really.

What I can see is for them to be used to synthesize unit tests. In that case, the risk is lower:

1) the tests succeed and your code is correct.
2) the tests fail and your code is wrong.
3) the tests fail, but your code is right.
4) the tests succeed, but your code isn’t right.

The only real risk here is 4. With 2 and 3, you already know you have work to do. With 4, you may miss it because you were overconfident in the “AI”. But the same can happen if you wrote the tests yourself, or someone else did.

Now there's an interesting idea. "Write unit tests to perform best fit coverage of the following code..."

I mean *technically* it's the halting problem, but at what point does it bail out with 'good enough for common practice'?

Sure, that happens (and some dumbasses have started using ChatGPT to write answers ), but it seems slightly less likely.

I mean, otherwise, we're basically at the "everyone could be a Changeling" portion of Star Trek Picard season 3, so might as well have drinks with Worf and Raffi and give up.

I say we are already there. This looks to be the tipping point for the destruction of objective reality, and therefore common understanding, societal cohesion, and escaping authoritarianism.

Once it becomes effectively impossible for even a critical mind to determine the provenance and authenticity of a convincing audio (or soon, video) clip, and the content to produce them can be created at a massive non-replicated scale, it will be pragmatically impossible to determine what out of the chaff is real.

At that point, there is little to no value in even attempting to remain informed, because there is no assurance that the information being consumed has beyond a statistically insignificant change of being authentic.

It may be nukes that fuse the soil, but it's this that fissions the species.

My skin won't stop crawling, which is a huge problem when your psoriasis is as profound as mine

So here's my brief, sleepy encounter:


Q: Will AIs be able to curate information on the internet for us, and how will we know they are not shaping a narrative?

I believe AIs can help curate information for us but it's crucial to emphasize that they must be programmed with ethical and human centric principles. This is why it's important to have transparency and accountability measures in place so that we know an AI’s decision making process.

Q: The majority of users are unsophisticated and distrustful, their technology platforms are balkanized, and their technical incompetence means that they are likely to fall for fraudulent versions of the truth. How is it possible to provide a coherent common ground to bring everyone back to a shared reality? Can you be specific?

It’s a challenging problem, but I believe that education is key. We need to focus on educating people about how to spot fake news and disinformation online. Additionally, we need platforms that prioritize transparency and accurate information over profit and engagement metrics. Finally, we must restore trust in our institutions so that people have faith in the sources of information they receive.

You are right, of course, and although I don't want to say it's hopeless in the US, I think it's pretty fracking hopeless today when a large and powerful contingent of a major political party has been for decades deliberately and successfully eroding trust in public institutions and systematically destroying the roles of public education and critical thinking. People aren't even trying to hide it any more, some haven't for years, brazenly making the destruction of these systems an openly stated goal of their platforms and policies. I know "politics" can be touchy a subject, but it's hard not to address an elephant in the room here.
