It’s amusing to me that star trek imagined a world where an AI faces social rejection because he’s rational, fact based, literal, fiercely/dogmatically moral, and struggles with social nuance. But here in reality we invented AIs that have no concept of truth, give zero fucks about accuracy, have no rationality, and can’t do math, but match vibes and tone nearly perfectly.
The first artificial person will not be an autistic science officer. It’ll be an extremely allistic salesbro or politician.

It's a simple as registering for free to an RSS aggregator (Feedly, NewsBlur, Inoreader, …) and adding www.ff00aa.com to your feeds (or www.garoo.net if you want to subscribe to all my topics). We don't need newsletters, and we don't need Twitter; RSS still exists.
