(CNBC)   Facebook uses a billion Instagram photos to teach AI how to "see." So if you're not making duck lips or showing off your ass, you should be fine during the robot apocalypse   (cnbc.com) divider line

This is why I don't give them my photos.

That's why I give them your photos.

I figured it'd be the other way around.  No duck lips or showing off your butt & it thinks you're not registered with the AI Consortium & need to be exterminated.

When they came for the duck lips, I said nothing because I was not a duck lip.

"But many Instagram users may be surprised to hear that their images are being used to train Facebook AI systems. "


Congrats -- you're a lab rat.

Nah, for most people the AI will think there's no way real life person is the same Instagram person. The Instagram person is very attractive and the real life person is, not.

Cats and landscapes are my contribution. Id did say "public" and mine aren't, so maybe not. Maybe.

Sounds like it's just training it to recognize things it has stored in a database. That's not really intelligence.

Well, it's military intelligence.

What if I'm making duck lips with my ass?

Good point, Subby. Let's all avoid memes that have been adopted by the world's idiots, including the DT.  Nobody needs to look like DJT.

When I was a child you could buy big wax lips in the "candy store". Sure, they tasted like wax, but they were good for looking silly, and could serve as the poor child's chewing gum because they only cost a nickel.

The ducks cried out in terror, but echos came there none.

Hee, Hee. Urban legend.

Those poor data center troglodytes had so many cooked potatoes they were handing them out to nearby companies.

Everyone is missing the best part of this scenario. If this were to happen, the robots would first target the Kardashians!

It did this by feeding it over 1 billion public images from Instagram.

Pornhub should try using the same AI on 1 billion pubic images.

Feel sorry for whoever's photos you mistook for me.

It won't recognize faces as human unless they're filtered to the point of being fuzzy.

You mean there's a downside to publishing personal data online where you have zero control who accesses it or what they do with it?

Man. I so didn't call this when social media first started.

/ wait, yes I did.

I only minored in computer science but I feel like that comic is one of the best laymen descriptions of how the field of AI (as opposed to the oldskool meaning of AI like programming video game enemies) actually works. In every AI is racist thread you always see comments like "well the programmers must be racist" but as far as know AI is largely based on the mathematical fields of graph theory (who makes phone calls to who, is it two way, how often?) and fuzzy logic (how do you quantify how much a tomato is a fruit or a vegetable? how do you quantify the similarities between apples and oranges?) and people throw a fit when it spits oit answers they don't like.

Gee, I wonder where they got that idea from.
