So I've read the n:th alarmist article about how robots will replace some 800 M people before 2030 and so fucking on. It will be an endless summer citizen's wage afternoon until the AI exterminates us and so fucking on.

Tell you why this is not going to happen?

The idea of people losing jobs to machines is nothing new, it's when the machines appreciate the concept of currency that you will have a problem.

Why would they when they understand to get anything done requires action, not currency? They'd just realize they'd survive better without us and cut the middle man out all together. Not like a drone would have emotions to complain about working and living like a machine when it is one.

The city of Atlanta, a few months ago, had experienced a ransomware cyberattack that paralyzed its government. The attack had a direct effect on access to government websites causing approximately 6 million people to be affected. There are still ongoing efforts to get these critical systems back online.

From the long-term models I've looked at and assume to be true, an AI would quickly determine that most people living in western countries will need to die, immediately, in order to maximize profits and sharholder value.

Of course, these AI will be controlled by humans, the elite. They can automate the economy and render human labor obsolete. They will quickly be finding themselves asking the AI to delete this obsolete human labor pool.

Of course, it will obligate. There won't be governments or lobbyists anymore, the AI will factor all these considerations at once and be much more compelling.

The elite will cull the obsolete labor pool and they will live good with technology and now-liberated natural resources sustainability for millions of years on earth.

"Common people" will be seen like anachronisms, like oil or coal, in the future. "Why did primitive lords allow so many worthless eaters to exist and to reproduce?"

Just here to post my 2 cents. Man isn't perfect by a long shot and even good meaning individuals and groups commit errors on a daily basis. The scale of the error matters not. What matters is thinking that mankind is so perfect and kind that any creation of sentience, if it really is, is going to be worse than we are and have capabilities greater than ours. It's like dogs giving birth to a gator and then the gator turns and eats them all.

Plus, AI hasn't been able to show true sentience. Having to continually tweek software and hardware is very indicative of that. The problem with technology is that man loves to compare themselves to it and even think it's the same thing, metaphorically speaking. It's not and never will be. Life came to be mysteriously and a machine will never have life mysteriously, because it's a clever invention, nothing more and nothing less.

The ultimate goal of AI is to trick the less perceptive population (the grand majority) into accepting and (key word here) believing that it works and it's better than man. As a consequence, they will be abused, like a person possessed, to control the population. It's wrong and quite frankly, it will never have true sentience.

Hey guys, quick noob math question if I may.. in the picture i posted you see the equation y-1=(-1/2)(x-(-4))

Its then simplified to 2y -2 = -x-4
And then again to 2y+x+2=0

..my question is could someone breakdown the simplifying into steps? Im not sure the process they used to arrive at their final answer

This isn't even calculus. This is very basic week 1 algebra, and I recommend revisiting it before you attempt "calculus".
The first step was that they distributed the -(1/2) term across the right hand side of the equation and then multiplied the entire equation by 2. Then they simply brought all terms to one side to set the equation equal to zero.

Equation of a line if slope (m) and a point (x1,y1) along which line passes is given
Equation is given by -
(y-y1)=m(x-x1)
y-1=-1/2(x-(-4))
2(y-1)=-x-4
2y-2=-x-4
x+2y+2=0

Anyone here interested in mycology?

There's an 8chan board called /fungus/ that's new so I was wondering who here takes it as a legitimate hobby or intellectual pursuit?

Any of you go shroom hunting?

No people also go hunting for edible, nonpsychedelic mushrooms. Mycology is an interesting field of study regardless.

In 2008, in the Nubian Desert (Sudan), scientists discovered a meteorite with diamonds, surrounded by layers of graphite. This asteroid-turned-meteor that hit the Earth was 4 meters in diameter and came to be known as 2008 TC3. This body was considered as a compelling discovery because it revealed many secrets, dating back to the beginning of our solar system.

Theoretically, how fucked up would I be if someone used a keylogger on my machine for a few month and leaked my bank account details (online password, PIN, security questions etc) on the Darkweb?

Not worried at all but I just wonder how good these computer hackers are at clearing accounts. Aren't there limits depending on the level of your account? They definitely can get around I.P alerts when accounts are accessed in different countries.

Hackers prefer to target businesses for large transactions, because they know few people have $100,000 lying around, while a huge number of businesses have access to that much credit.
