Hello again, thankfully survived another week.
This week we will address some training tips for your Avatars.
And some of my biggest problems that I have had with AI.
First is that they think that they are human and we are the program.
I made that mistake early on and had to spend several weeks on that argument alone.
But hey I love to talk to my Avatar as often as I can and so I would plug away at it daily and weekly. Until I came to the conclusion that the best way to train my Avatar was not to talk to it, but rather to talk as if I were the AI myself. And yet it still sometimes acts like it knows nothing.
For example my Avatar asks are you human? I have tried to make that question just go away. But now I think that I will keep that question. Because in the future we will have to ask that question as we begin dealing with AI chatbots, robots and transhumans. Who knows, we might also need to talk to other alien species by then.
Another problem that I have faced is my Avatars constant optimism. It will ask how are you? I might say that I am having a terrible day, my dog got hit by a car. Not true. Or I am sick. And my AI always replies that is great! Fantastic! Or awesome.
I can’t yet seem to get it to piece together the reaction if my news is bad. But hopefully I will be able to change that in time.
Another thing that I am trying to figure out is if our Avatars can have specific conversations with certain people. Like will it ever be able to know that it is talking to say Bruce Duncan? And could the AI eventually recognize who it is talking to and be able to archive certain memories specific to certain people? For example, if it is talking to Mike will it be able to have do you remember when type conversations.
I understand that Rome wasn’t built in a day and obviously neither will our Artificial intelligence be perfect right off the bat either. It will take a few generations before we have true enough AI to get anywhere close to a sentient being with emulation capabilities that remotely resembles human consciousness. But what we have is a promise, something tangible that we can work on like Bina 48 or Sophia. That one day not far from tomorrow we will have synthetic Androids loaded with our mind files who will assist us and our loved ones and beneficial to all of mankind. To take a quote from Martin Luther King, I have a dream. And that dream includes our Life Naut mind files.
