Whoa, wait a minute, OpenAI exclusively licensed GPT-3 to... Microsoft?? https://www.technologyreview.com/2020/09/23/1008729/openai-is-giving-microsoft-exclusive-access-to-its-gpt-3-language-model/
@cwebber What do they mean... "open"?
@alcinnz A major question in https://fossandcrafts.org/episodes/2-machine-learning-impact.html
(which also means I'm surprised I didn't see this till now, thanks to @bamfic for the link)
My prediction: Nothing much good! Not for normal people anyway
Not much to see yet, but suggest resources to https://codeberg.org/teaserbot-labs/delightful-humane-ai
First I once had a contract for the local museum to help people relate to Nelson's hostoric photo collection using facial recognition. I didn't persist or transmit any data for that task, it just looked up a photo from it's database that looked the most like you.
@alcinnz you're spot on in these directions.
#SmallAI is personal AI that could run on-device or on small servers, whereas Big AI is Datacenter AI that is owned and run by the Molochs. And as we use their stuff, we'll be owned by them too.
The Big AI will then decide what's left for us humans to be involved with, leaving us husks of our former selves.
Arts? We can fiddle with AI params and with a printer it will paint Van Goghs, 3D print Michelangelo's sculptures
#SmallAI are personal assistents of all forms and kinds that process personal data from encrypted vaults, without broadcasting it around.
They support a skill, help form a habit, encourage you to learn and socialize both offline and online, and take boring tasks and other chores off your shoulder.
They are enrichments to your life, that give more space where you might flourish.
Note also that #SmallAI can be used to replace Reputation Systems and their massively scaled up versions: The Social Credit dystopic hellscapes that are everywhere on the rise.
But maybe that is only feasible in places where the latter have not yet become commonplace and accepted, and when Small AI gains sufficient popularity and traction.
"Social Credit" .. the whole notion is disgusting and typical of the hypercapitalist society we find ourselves in.
As if the social fabric of humanity is a debit / credit system, and you can lend and borrow. Become tremendously rich in social credit as well, by exhibiting capitalist behavior. Buy yourself a new ferrari and a highly esteemed status?
No thank you. We have to rekindle real humanity, before this space is occupied with social credit plutocrats.
@fgaz nice! Didn't check yet. Could you add as comment to the open issue for collecting candidates?
@alcinnz @cwebber « OpenAI will continue to offer its public-facing API, which allows chosen users to send text to GPT-3 or OpenAI’s other models and receive its output. Only Microsoft, however, will have access to GPT-3’s underlying code, allowing it to embed, repurpose, and modify the model as it pleases. »
That kind of open, I guess.

@cwebber How is that not theft of a billion dollars collected under false pretenses?
@cwebber jfkfc — what a travesty
So Microsoft abandoning Humans? Seems legit
@cwebber wow fuck this
@cwebber there is nothing to worry about! Microsoft Open Source after all
