I think it’s more the way the youtube algorithm works. It sorts “top comments” by default, seemingly even removing comments if they don’t get enough likes to reach a threshold. I’ve had an issue before where a video shows no comments even when it says there are 3 comments. I switch to “new” and the three comments show up

Edit: But I see what you are saying, the algorithm definitely plays into that attention seeking mentality

I always observe how in youtube comments nothing close to an original thought surfaces. Everyone always has the same generic reaction to things. Makes me feel very solipsistic

Why? IP is a bankrupt concept. Instead of protecting IP on behalf of artists, we should abolish IP for AI companies. Enforce open sourcing of AI models that use other people’s data, nationalize big tech, so on

If you look into this decision, it’s more that China is worried about deepfakes, which is a very real concern.

In recent years, deep synthesis technology has developed rapidly. While serving user needs and improving user experience, it has also been used by some unscrupulous people to produce, copy, publish, and disseminate illegal and harmful information, to slander and belittle others’ reputation and honor, and to counterfeit others’ identities. Committing fraud, etc., affects the order of communication and social order, damages the legitimate rights and interests of the people, and endangers national security and social stability.

This is likely easy to enforce at the model level, if you have a model that generates lifelike impressions of real people. Enforcing it per image would be impossible I think.

But there are people celebrating this like it’s some luddite attempt of China to hold back technological progress for the narrow aim of protecting IP. Any “communist” that is disposed this way, read the quote above a few more times. When the sewing machine was invented, did we hold back the sewing machine so that more tailors could keep their jobs? Why should it be any different for “artists”? Is the solution to alienation turning back society to the dark age? Or is there already a theory of revolutionary change that venerates the acceleration of revolutions in the forces of production? If you hate AI art you are a reactionary.

  1. I don’t think you know what spelling means because I didn’t misspell any words
  2. he has came from Russia. “has came” is not a proper verb form
  3. There’s nothing grammatically incorrect about what I wrote

If you’re going to nitpick me at least be correct yourself

I guess we’ll see when more details come out. Given the growing evidence that it was an Ukrainian S-300, why would it be so far off course, and not just that, in the complete opposite direction to the approaching missiles from the east it would be trying to intercept?
And it just so happens to hit a tractor in the middle of empty farmland. It’s almost like Ukraine would have something to gain if article 5 were triggered.

Not smart enough to write a full program by itself, that’s why its called copilot. It’s GPT-3 for code, so like how GPT is useful for inspiration when creative writing, Copilot can autocomplete code, useful if the code is just a comment describing what you want a function to do. It generates multiple results, so you can pick the best one. Even if the solution provided doesn’t work, it is still helpful to the programmer who can make a few corrections, which is easier than writing all the code without Copilot.

Xperiment: Do you think the above was AI generated?

Is there anyone who was rooting for her? I see Tucker Carlson and Piers Morgan making fun of her tonight. She seems to be universally disliked.

Can I rant about “YouTube Kids” for a second?
What is with the "made for kids" bs? I know it's about COPPA compliance, but I also think YouTube bears some responsibility for how stupid they have made their system. Basically, any video that is "made for kids" lacks most basic features. You can't leave comments, you can't add the video to the playlist. You can't use the miniplayer in the app, which is a UI feature. Why? Because the people who wrote COPPA are a bunch of boomers who don't understand the internet. This would all be fine, because I don't tend to watch content that is actually for children. But as someone who has helped others upload video to YouTube, I know first hand how easy Google makes it for people to want to click the "made for kids" button even when their content is targeted to the general audience. Basically, people think "well, there's nothing in this video that is unsafe for children, so I must check the box then" which effectively handicaps anyone watching their video from using the most basic features. This shit makes me so fucking angry.

Wtf is trans strasserism?
I have seen the flag a couple times this week, what is it? How can it possibly be a thing? Is it from jreg?

Boring game. Anything I can do in this game I can do in real life already.

I read that book already. It’s just a bad book. Don’t assume I don’t understand things.

The U$ is the product of horrific genocide. Literally a successful version of the third Reich.

Ok, sure. But that doesn’t answer any of my questions. Since you want to draw comparisons to the Nazis, did the soviets scapegoat the German people in East Germany or did they suppress the Nazi ideology and liberate the people regardless of nationality?

If i steal your car and give it to a friend, do you deserve your car back? What if it’s been a very long time?

This is just a shitty moralism, not an objective analysis. All land is stolen if you want to go there. And in communism me and your friend will share the car. Just like the land will be shared. There are two worlds that are exposed to us. The world that is, and the world that should be. With enough effort, we can objectively make sense of the world that is.
We can not objectively understand the world that should be, because there is a different version of that world for every person. But at the individual level, the fantasies we have play a small role in the real world.

So let’s stick to the world that is and you can answer my questions from before.

Imagine calling people who lived in a place 400-500 years colonizers. What is the threshold where a population becomes localized? I consider Palestinians indigenous to Palestine, even though they have not always lived there. If you do not think a population can become indigenized over hundreds of years, you will have a difficult time contending with Zionists who argue that Israelis are the original inhabitants of Palestine and that the land was taken from them, even as they displace people from the homes they have lived in for generations. How will you come to grips with the reality that 99.3% of the American population is non-native? Do you want all of these people to die?

Well where I live there is virtually 0 public transport, why I say “by American standards, which isn’t saying much”

This is the Oakland bay bridge. The lanes only expand to this wide to accommodate more toll booths. Because cars move slower on lanes when they are paying tolls, the tolls will become a bottleneck unless there are more toll lanes than highway lanes. You can see up ahead where the lanes merge back together again.

This is the only direct road connection between Oakland and San Francisco, so of course there will be heavy traffic no matter how much public transport you have. And the bay area has decent public transport by american standards, which isn’t saying much, but many people live close to commuter rail.

I don’t see the problem with this, there are much worse examples of modern car infrastructure imo.

No. We only know what science is because of philosophy. If that basis for science became science, then the truth of science would have to presuppose itself, a set of ideas that would be true in and of themselves, which is clearly fallacious.

Also, the sciences deal with descriptive reality. They say nothing about how the world should be or how we should act.

That is a psychology wiki article about authoritarian personality, not about authoritarianism.

What most people mean by authoritarianism is a form of government. You are an anarchist right? You would agree the state is just the way the ruling class asserts its position, and that all states have this monopoly of the legitimate use of violence. If that’s what a state is, how can one state have more of a monopoly than another? A monopoly is a monopoly. However you see it, the class in power rules absolutely. No state is more authoritarian or libertarian than any other.

It’s a planned feature. Just not one the devs are working on right now.

I think the instances should be fully connected as possible, but this isn’t a design flaw that admins can block instances. It is their resources going into hosting, so they should be able to decide how they want to run their own instances. Having the software prevent them from doing this would be developer overreach.

Sadly some people do this without getting good pay and a cool badge.

I support this feature. But Wikipedia is not an authority on what fascism is. The dictionary attempts to describe the usage of a word in this case as it relates to an objective phenomenon. Before we can attempt this description, an understanding of the objective phenomenon must be had. We can rely on definitions for understood phenomena like water, jogging, or birds. But what exactly fascism is is a hotly debated topic, not a well understood phenomenon that we hold absolute knowledge and certainty of. Even your dictionary source admits it is a characterization of fascism, not exactly a definition.

A conservative will reason discursively that Hitler was a leftist, because the Left can be defined as more government, so Fascism is far left. In the same way, that buzzfeed employee could argue their own view of what misogyny is. To them, when a man spreads their legs in public, this is the sexist act of manspreading.

What these people (and you) are doing is taking a word that has a strongly negative connotation, arguing for an expanded categorization of this word in an attempt to rub off that connotation on something else. But all this succeeds in doing is devaluing said word.

Fascism has a negative connotation because its consequence was the death of 60-100 million people. That has nothing to do with Bernie supporters wanting to give people free healthcare. The “more government” connection (what even does ‘more government’ mean?) has to be proven more than circumstantial. Likewise, sexism has a negative connotation because of rape, women in the past not having basic rights like the right to vote, etc. But a man letting his balls get some air has nothing to do with that, even if people find it a little rude.

They have algebraically replaced a world phenomenon with a term, much like a mathematician replaces a quantity with the letter ‘X’ on paper. Then they have discursively reasoned using the term, not the phenomenon. You can find the length of a square’s side from the root of the area. We have a square that is 4 cm2. So what is √4? Math tells us that it is ±2. So a square in real life can have a negative length? This is the lunacy that you will accept with analytical reasoning if you do not understand its premises.

So instead of lazily giving us a definition full of nebulous terms, why not prove to me that any similarities between modern Russia and the Fascist countries are more than circumstantial? What is the unity behind these particular examples? All states are militaristic. All states suppress real opposition. Authoritarianism is no realer than the boogeyman. Russia does not have a “strong regimentation of society” so you’re just flat out wrong there.

I did that when I was staying over at a friends house in middle school once, and instead of the parents getting mad at me, they got mad at my friend. “why can’t you be more like them?”

It’s more likely some feature of the way the data is collected. You can see there is a clear trend without the spike. If it was about Jan 6, that would mean 900,000 comments about Jan 6. I think it’s just a mistake.

Many reasons. Sometimes the water table is too high. Sometimes the ground isn’t actually colder because it is a material that retains a lot of heat. Digging is expensive. And of course, most people don’t want to live underground.

New technology is cool. But since it requires the bacteria to be fed with plant matter, this will compete with agriculture for food production if produced in scale.

I’ve seen it happen on someone else’s computer. Windows 11 just started downloading with no option to cancel and eventually installed itself. There was no way to stop it without disabling all windows updates.

Yes especially because the land that they do have is violated all the time for pipelines etc. The problem is that the meaning of this term is not definite or based in theory. For some, it could mean the expulsion of all non-indigenous populations which will never happen and would do a lot of harm if it did. For the NDN collective, it means the privatization of all public lands.

I won’t claim to know the best policy or slogan, but I think it’s important, when indigenous people in my country are only 0.7% of the population, to teach the masses that we share a common struggle. I think increasingly people can relate to the idea of having something that belongs to you taken away. My great grandfather was a farmer who ultimately had to lose his farm because government regulations made it impossible to compete with the big guys. So a slogan like “Land for all” goes a long way comparatively. This is only a part of the equation because there is still the issue of autonomy.

I never trusted the land back anti-colonialism movements that originated in the west. They will scree about land back for Tibet and ETIM long before they do anything for indigenous people in the US. I swear if this type of language existed during the height of the British empire, aristocrats would be talking about the need to decolonize Maratha. Land back for the Indian nations! It’s all just divide and conquer baby. Only a strong power can resist real imperialism, one that moralizing children will call authoritarian and imperialist.

Yes until 8th grade. Self defense isn’t really the problem. I could defend myself physically just fine. That doesn’t resolve the social dynamics of bullying. Although I guess it doesn’t hurt to know.

c/pics has no active mods
Lately, c/pics has been spammed with posts that I see as off topic. The community has no set rules, and the only mod is inactive for 2 years. In order to preserve the quality of this community, there needs to be new mods. I don't particularly want to do it, but if no one else steps up I will take responsibility for it.
