    oh so it's about you now

    If I'm the one getting my dick jerked off, I should fucking hope! It's a service!

    Researchers at DeepMind, Google's artificial intelligence lab, recently performed a number of tests by having its most complex AI play a series of a games with a version of itself.

    In the first game, two AI agents, one red and one blue, scramble to see who can collect the most apples, or green squares.

    Each AI has the option of firing off a long laser beam to stun the other AI, giving one player ample time to collect more precious green apples.

    Terrifyingly, it takes almost no time for both AI to start zapping each other relentlessly in the name of green apples.

    "These results show that agents learn aggressive policies in environments that combine a scarcity of resources with the possibility of costly action," wrote DeepMind's researchers in a study examining the tests.

    In addition, scientists were able to change details in the game that would push the AI into being more or less likely to zap their apple-gathering partner. For example, scientists lowered the frequency at which apples spawned and also upped the stun time for each AI's laser, tweaks that resulted in a "highly aggressive" game.

    We.

    Are going.

    To die.

    the real issue is that we don't understand consciousness or even qualitative experience enough to make assumptions about duplicating or destroying brains. i wouldn't step into that thing.

    Hmm

    I am torn, because on the one hand, I want to go "ok, fair"

    On the other hand I approach 100% certain that everything we experience is somewhere in the brain, in the form of various processes that only are affected by relative positions and forces that are constantly shifting and would not be affected by such a thing.

    sometimes i'll open 25 porn tabs and then use hot keys to switch between them while jacking it, conducting my own little erotic symphony to crescendo with my favorite clip during climax

    or if i'm researching something i'm buying i might have 10 or 15 different reviews open

    but i'm fairly sure i've never had as many as 30 tabs

    1500?

    to clarify, i'm talking about the one that destroys the original and makes a copy

    i am troubled by e.g. a thought experiment in which the machine simply creates a copy without destroying the original; obviously this would not transfer or disrupt my consciousness in any way so copies are not "me" and would not "transfer" my consciousness

    i rather think that such duplication may actually be completely physically impossible, though

    Home I usually have between 5-10 tabs split between two instances of chrome. Usually youtube/hulu/twitch/netflix or whatever on the right. The left is usually 2 tabs of PA (D&D and G&T but sometimes SE++), WashPo, Gmail, sometimes facebook, usually like 1 or 2 vidya or research things and the webcomic tab as I read through stuff.

    It gets way more when I am programming or something as I do a lot of digging for things especially if I am doing something new.
