of course since the collapse of the distinction between capitalist/worker when I say we I mean all of us.

Article that seems to confirm current suggestions that the Dall-E image maker has developed its own secret language without any prompting


They've denied it but there's definitely something to this

I wonder how much of these are just artifacts of the training sets? Even if thats the case, it's still effectively sensing patterns that don't make sense to us.

If you read this, where they've had access to the API etc, it says that the training set for DALLE was CLIP, so definitely not directly, though this bird phrase does seem to have a bit of a correlation

The vegetable one is weird as well, no doubt they'll find more as they dig. Did anyone read Life 3.0?

I imagine thats exactly what's happening. if you think of image recognition, the intermediate layers in a neural net build up abstract images which are then used by later layers to match against more complicated and concrete images. you could potentially feed the network an image based on those abstract images and have it recognise it as a cat or whatever, even though it's completely abstract and synthetic

we are way way further from sentience than we think:
consider the first generations of personal computers they would be advertised as if they are extremely close to human level sentience, truth value of which we can easily verify now

it's zeno's turtle all of this
 
The key takeaway from the Washington Post story isnt necessarily "sentience," which is an absurd idea in itself- the real issue would always be 'intelligence' above a certain level and how it is utilised, and by whom- but rather the furore being caused by individuals in the project itself

Google may try and paint this lad as a crank- that seems to be the attempt so far- but this will be weaponised with 18 months as part of a luddite post-hyperinflation culture war.

Watch the narrative
