    It has come to my attention, recently to a large extent the influence of artificial intelligence in searching or expanding the knowledge base of ones self. The ability of youtube to dig deeper into a thought process has amazed me really. It is like meditating in a way, if you start with a thought and consistently keep to that thought and try to find out the root cause of it you will be left with an understanding of that matter, the ultimate goal is this separating, where one sees the object for what it is (call it truth or what ever), object in this case been the trigger for the thought.

    If you leave youtube playing rnb for a day,week,month will it still be playing rnb when you come back, or will it have jumped to gospel or even jazz. I know that this is largely dependent on the database but other factors such as friend history logs, facebook, twitter feeds can influence where the video stream might end up.

    Its as if ones life description has been reduced to code, the more you are fed data the more productive or expressive you will become, a continues stream of thoughts molded by the algo's, the only thing one can do with information is to share it, if governments are talking about regulations in this sector the only thing that can work is a counter propaganda message, because you cant regulate human nature and facebook, twitter and google are extensions of human nature

    Others will only drift with the fashions. Things are becoming more structured, and mild disobedience is punished - and things are becoming more disordered, with destructive disobedience being rewarded (by some). Constructive disobedience is punished by all powers that be.

    Children are not punished with the cane anymore, but with corrective measures - sometimes drugs. Giving them an open smartphone is the easiest way to keep them away from important matters.

    I couldn't agree more, and what is sad is that this is what moves the world forward

    I think the way forward must be planned good time ahead. The 1917-2017 anniversary is a reminder that parts of the present system are weak. Then and now dark forces were and are planning for returning to the glorious past of colonialism, thought suppression, speech suppression, religious totalitarianism, racism (not only white towards black) and public ignorance.

    So there is a need for alliances of people who look forwards and who are able to integrate history, present and future by knowing history and knowing technology and caring about people. Few politicians fit into that category.

    some are awesome:


    others; not.

    Back in the archives you can see where they visited us in the threads on language generation bots...

    my feeling is a true artificial general intelligence won't do what it's creators bid it to, hence a conflict will arise.
