why am i bothering to do anything of value with my life when i could make money by telling nerds spooky campfire stories about AI

Follow

nerds: oh my god AI is gonna get smart and then we are all gonna DIE!!!!!!

actual AI researchers: why the fuck does my neural net classify this picture of a panda as an ice cream cone

i love to sit around thinking up "what if god could microwave a burrito so hot that even he could not eat it" type scenarios but its about computers so i think i am very smart

@dankwraith ive never understood the whole "AI will take over and kill us all" cause i would just put in a kill switch.

@NuclearTess ah but the mega computer would predict this and nullify the kill switch. this scenario is not at all like children making up superhero battles as they go along

@dankwraith

Also actual AI researchers:

Why does this software define this schoolbus full of children as a valid drone target under the rules of engagement?
