Who cares what's in the black box if you can perfectly replicate its outputs? That's like saying we didn't actually crack the Enigma code, when we actually knew everything the Nazis were saying to each other.

We don't know how a steel rod works either. You seem to want us to map out every atom of the thing over time to make sure that we know what is going on when we can bypass all the busywork with a little observation.

Stop being so stupid.

"That is pure hope as well as circular."

No, it isn't. Humans learn how to learn as babies.

And failing to differentiate between programming and machine learning automatically makes your opinion on AI completely invalid. That's like having someone who doesn't know the difference between a standard and an automatic giving you car advice. Extremely basic stuff that even normies should know.

mbeckman fails to grasp the core concept behind machine learning and AI. They aren't programming a computer to do things, they are programming a computer to learn things (or at a more advanced level, are programming a computer to learn how to learn things).

He dismisses the whole concept like it is some kind of mechanical turk, but it is real, and it is getting better every day.

Jesus, read a fucking book. Short of that, read a fucking wiki page.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

And I NEVER said the US had anyone's best interest's at heart other than their own, but that is beside the point. They moved away from government control, and the direct result was that people stopped starving. This is very, very fucking simple. The more state control their is, the more impoverished the people, PERIOD. If state intervention "worked" as you claimed, then there would have been no need for reforms, because Spain would have been a magical paradise where the dictator commanded the tides and economic growth was shat out by flying unicorns on command. But that wasn't the case, and never has been, there, or anywhere else with a massive state control apparatus.

You dumbassed statists are simply too stupid to understand the concept of a spectrum, so you can't make any kind of reasonable assessment of any situation, which is why every time you are put in charge, you destroy everything, leaving nothing but crumbling monuments to your own ineptitude.

"1) Falangism (fascism, the Spanish version), as well as nationalcatolicism were not abandoned by Franco till his death in 1975."

You can say that, but it's wrong. The US intervened and forced free market refoms starting in the 60's. Franco was forced to comply or be killed. This is what you call a "quasi-coup".

The CIA is/was very, very persuasive when it came to such things.

The Spanish Miracle didn't happen until after the free market reforms were imposed. If you can't even get basic facts straight, I would suggest you crawl back into your hole, you idiot goon.

Following the path of the US (democracy and economic freedom), and following the path the the CIA forced on other countries (shut up and do what we say or die), are two very different things.

I think the successes of that era were probably due to the abandonment of fascism for the free market you hate so much rather than the other way around, commiefriend.

It was EXACTLY in the 60's when there was a quasi-coup that forced Franco to adopt economic liberalization.

Fact is, their continued intervention in the market only held them back, and is a large part of the reason why Spain is a basket case today. Had they taken the path of freedom, they would have advanced as Germany and Britain did.

You keep using that phrase "day one". I do not think it means what you think it means.

I never said we would have AGI robots on "day one". I said that by the time with have robots with AGI, they will be able to repair themselves without continuing support from the manufacturer.

We have shared AI resources RIGHT NOW, including a massive skill repository on Youtube that some AI's are already using to learn tool use.

There are already numerous databases of shared resources dedicated to AI, to say nothing of Youtube how-to videos and text based instructions, which they can read a few million times faster than a human.

And yes, that does assume that it has both mobility and dexterity. Why on earth would you have an AI robot that didn't have those things? So it can look at you and have deep thoughts? You can do that with a computer and a webcam.
