  • Google promised better search - now it's telling us to put glue on pizza. (The Verge)

    AI - the LLM version of AI, which is all that makes the news these days - requires human input to learn. It only takes a few iterations of training AI on AI output for it to turn completely to shit.

    Yes, even more than usual.

    Which is why OpenAI and Google made deals with Reddit to train their respective AI engines on that vast trove of human-generated data.

    Only problem is, Reddit is Reddit:
    Imagine this: you've carved out an evening to unwind and decide to make a homemade pizza. You assemble your pie, throw it in the oven, and are excited to start eating. But once you get ready to take a bite of your oily creation, you run into a problem - the cheese falls right off. Frustrated, you turn to Google for a solution.

    "Add some glue," Google answers. "Mix about 1/8 cup of Elmer's glue in with the sauce. Non-toxic glue will work."

    Google will literally tell you to do this, because it found that answer in a ten year old Reddit thread.

    Obviously it's a joke. Obviously it's a bad idea. But AI doesn't know those things, because AI doesn't know anything except, statistically, which words are likely to be found together.
    Look, Google didn't promise this would be perfect, and it even slaps a "Generative AI is experimental" label at the bottom of the AI answers. But it's clear these tools aren't ready to accurately provide information at scale.
    They work just fine if you don't care about the answers. They work just fine if an answer that looks right, is right.

    That's why AI is advancing rapidly in image generation (and in producing astoundingly mediocre music) but is absolute garbage at anything that requires a factual answer.

    It's not a bug. It's baked in to the design.

Standing alongside Kenyan President William Ruto, in a classic tux, and Rachel Ruto, in a gorgeous steel-gray ensemble covered in ruffles and trimmed with a soft edge, the Bidens painted a picture of a first couple that embraces American tradition and imagery at a time when symbols of patriotism — especially the flag — have been used and abused by undemocratic forces.

63 So. a very leftist church -not my denomination-not far from me is making a change to their sanctuary. They have some beautiful phases from the psalms written partially in gold leaf with black lettering ( Can't recall which psalms) but since it was probably done in the late 1800s or early 1900s it refers to God as He. The dopey progressive pastor has decided that the phrases will be covered up and ones with more inclusive language put up instead. I think this is a really bad idea- disrespectful to the former pastor who had this put up and the members of yesteryears. Somebody I know who goes there is spitting man and says she will leave if this is done.

94 I had a job once where my commute was about 45 miles each way. The worst part was the 5 miles just getting out of the city.

95 Marilyn Mosby gets 12 months home confinement instead of 40 years of prison like she deserves. She'll be back running for office before you know it. After all, if Trump can do it...

97 My work can take me 5 miles away or over 100. I generally don't know where it's going to be much in advance, a day or so. I like the long trips sometimes though, it gets me out of the shop.

98 My husband is getting a lot of enjoyment from listening to the "Hello Muddah. Hello Faddah" camp song. It's wonderful to find humor on little things. He told me that the group "Leonard Skynner" is taken from a name of a kid in the song. I didn't know that.

We used to call Girl F. "the Baby Who Hates" because we have so many photos with a truly hateful expression. Turns out she grew up to be fairly judgmental but also very emotionally intelligent.

104 80 All it took was for my ex-pastor last year to say "We pray to God to rise up those marginalized due to their sexual orientation, race, or gender identity". Grabbed the kids out of Sunday school and walked out the door. The fact that there is even serious discussion about covering the Psalms is reason enough.

Now, *there's* a pastor not reading the audience!

105 SCOOP: Whistleblowers at UCLA medical school say it has dramatically lowered admissions standards for minority applicants.

As a result, they say, 50% of some cohorts now fail basic tests of medical competence.

106 23 I finally got a job, and it pays well, but it's down by the Space Center. That's 100+ miles round trip and the traffic sucks. Should be interesting work, though.

No details are being given. Supposedly launched from Iraq and was heading toward Haifa Port before being intercepted over Safed in the N. Galilee.

We heard quite a few pieces as they hit the ground. Until about 2-3 hours ago, I didn't realize that 2 bits were smack outside our door.

108 If not buy a hoopty, putting 500 miles on your car a week is a bit much.

What, pray tell, is a 'hoopty'? No, never mind. I don't think I want to know.

109 "The plan is to turn half the panels over so that they operate when it's dark."

Pixy: That got a big laugh. Well played. I''m going to use that one at some point.

Samsung devices: While I rather like my Galaxy Tab A8 (a tablet) I'm not pleased about the company's attitude towards customers trying to get their devices repaired. That's going to affect my next purchase and make me research decent alternatives. Friendliness to customers wanting to do repairs is going to be a large factor in my decision making.

111 The funny thing is, phones have reached the point where I only feel the need to upgrade when my currency phone starts to die.

Which means I'm probably going to be in the market for a repairable phone before too much longer.

113 "AI - the LLM version of AI, which is all that makes the news these days - requires human input to learn"

-----------------------

You really need to stop talking about stuff that you really don't study, comprehend or work on.

An LLM or, more specifically the multi-modal models that are current are just RNN's, no different mathematically than the wet one in your head that comes up with the snark and is suffering from such a severe case of Dunnings-Kruger.

Of course, there is some question on the role and exactly how backprop is implemented neuraly, and of course the neocortex is 5-layers deep and you just iteratively pass information through it to make up for the lack of depth, but these are arguments in favor of ANN over neural substrate as you can make artificially RNNs as arbitrarily large and deep as you'd like until they asymptote in performance. And neural computation is highly modular, like the emotion and disgust I get reading much of your postings, are relegated to a subnet, but current ANN design is adopting such approaches.

114 (2/2) continue.

Ultimately your idea that it "requires human imput to learn" is retarded. It needs training data, as you do. The current problem that you might be attempting to address, that of lack of training data as parameter counts scale past a trillion or so and the reliance on synthetic data is only partially a problem.

As humans, we learn in our first few years not by integrating all data, but by multimodal aquisation of spatial and sensory correlations. Of this the models will be able to have limitless data from the real world, provided we sample from high entropy sources almost like a parent would. They will teeach themselves and learn correlation and causation, the mathmatical structure of the network can allow for it, we just need scale, compute and multimodal data.

With you the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is strong. But, I'm sure you know the rest of tech better!

115 About that Spotify thing, MS did that to me with their Phone. It was great and then they broke it. They are doing the same with their Android launcher.

Posted by: Lost My Cookies at May 24, 2024 11:58 AM (kYEdG)

116 I'm surprised that you're surprised that Spotify is still in business. Aren't they currently the biggest music service going?
I have a free account and I'm fine with it.
I know I'm an outlier in that I still buy CDs for the things that I find that I like but the deal bands get from streaming is utter wank.
