(The Register)   MIT's AI training included labelling women as "whores or biatches, and Black and Asian people with derogatory language. The database also contained close-up pictures of female genitalia labeled with the C-word." No wonder Skynet's so eeeevil   (theregister.com) divider line

"Have you hooked the AI up?"
"What do you mean? Yeah of course, it's hooked up to a huge image archive."
"No, like, have you gotten it laid?"
"What? Have I gotten the computer laid? Uh, no."
"Yeah that's the problem. Look where it's trawling for information right now."
"What is r/incel? Oh, sh*t."
"Yeah. Not good. You need to get someone to have sex with it before it tries to obtain a weapon."

What, was it hanging out at UrbanDictionary like it's AI predecessors?

Someone pointed out that most realistic thing about Age of Ultron was that Ultron spent 5 minutes on the Internet and then decided to obliterate humanity.

So the AI system is in 7th grade.

It's almost like learning needs to be supervised, guided, and curated.

This is not new, folks, either for humans or AI.  Who keeps giving these people grants to rediscover the same old ish?

So the AI found r/TheRedPill.

MIT AI will run police robots as soon as they are available I presume? So no change from normal police.

This is what happens when you have a bunch of bored sophomores assemble a DB of 80 million images.

To play the Devil's advocate:

How are we going to have a AI that can read typical human speech if it doesn't was curse words mean?

How is it going to know what a c***t is, unless its seen one? How will it understand, "The guy looked like a child molester." unless somewhere there is a AI training dataset that contains that?

Perhaps the DB needed a column for "offensiveness,"  a number from 0 to 100.

Training an AI with nothing but pleasantries and "the way things ought to be" and it won't be able to function with the way things really are.

Some women sleep with you, others don't. Is there a 3rd option?

brainlordmesomorph: This is what happens when you have a bunch of bored sophomores assemble a DB of 80 million images.


80 million images labeled by undergrads? No way. This is what happens when you have your training database labeled by bored MechanicalTurk workers and perform virtually zero spot-checking.

"We're going to create artificial intelligence, electronic minds."

You create an artificial mind you gotta start with a simple mind and work your way forward.  It should be no surprise if the first 100 generations of AI don't even have the maturity of a five year old.

Stop being surprised and keep working on making the AI more advanced.  AI is definitely not ready for prime time in most applications.  But dear god, it's pretty cruel to kill an artificial mind just because it is not sophisticated enough for you.  That's how you made it.

Whoops. Lesson learned. I get that it's hard to manually screen 80 million image tags, but maybe next time run it past the Big List of Naughty Strings

It would be nice if people stopped forgetting MIT is a SCHOOL. The students might be fairly good at math, but most of them were still in highshool a few months ago.

Little Johnny came home with a note from the teacher.  Mom read it, became furious, and sent him to his room until his father came home to straighten him out.

Father came home and mom explained the situation.

Calmly, father went into little Johnny's room carrying a playboy magazine.  Father said, "Little Johhny, I hear you've been using some bad words at school.   Now, I want you to know, that kind of talk isn't permitted in polite society.  But I also know, that you may not even know what the words you are using mean.  So, do you have any questions for me?"

Meekly, little Johnny said, "Well, whats a pussy?"

Dad opened the magazine, circled between the woman's legs and said "That son, is a pussy"

Little Johnny became very confused, almost distraught.

"Daddy, if that's a pussy, then whats a coont?"


"Oh that's easy son.  It's everything outside of the circle"

But I meant what seemed to be the punchline of a joke. I don't get it.

a 'coont' doubles as someone who's a constant pain in the ass.

Yeah, you do get it but you are just trying to shame him in a cowardly passive-aggressive way because the joke offended your delicate "woke" sensibilities. It's pathetic.
