A Deep Dive into: AI [pt.4] – The formula: Humans making huge inroads in AI + AI can learn at a much faster rate than we can + We understand barely anything about the brain + AI doesn’t give a fuck about emotion or sympathy = Get ready for the most ironic and awkward thing in the history of the universe ever (& the Philosophy of: Funnybot)

As humans we’ve pretty much run our course. We’ve been going thousands of years to make advances in weapons, agriculture, engineering, all to build up to getting amazing as shit at making technology that is faster, better, can do more calculations quicker and ultimately smarter than us. All this is …

A Deep Dive into: AI [pt.3] – Humans are limited by their ability to process and transfer information but also by our inability to accept information we’ve heard billions and billions and billions and billions of times, over and over and over. And the (interesting, but NOT NEW AT ALL) philosophy of: Salu

I’m not a robot. But the limitations of the things that make us human, seem to far outweigh those that AI already has (and will continue to improve upon at crazy ass rates). We as humans already know that it’s pointless to regret the past because it never comes back, …

A Deep Dive into: AI [pt.2] – Is it possible that all this, everything and everyone around you and your whole life is a computer simulation? (+ The Philosophy of: Elon Musk in a hot tub)

When you play games like The Sims (or other similar mobile games) you have to get your characters to do a whole bunch of shit, get jobs, make and spend money, sometimes make friends and find partners and have babies and there’s also a bunch of time where your characters …

A Deep Dive into: AI [pt.1] – It’s good that humans only live to about 80 right now because robots are soon going to first fuck up our lives, and probably not long after the human race will be completely wiped out. (+ the philosophy of: Sophia the sassy robot)

If intelligence is the processing of info, and computers can already do it a fuckton quicker than us, we’re fucked. For thousands of years people have communicated and tried to work out the one thing we all have to do (how to live well) and still most of us have …

The philosophy of: inertia (& the philosophy of: Paul Rulkens – If you want results you’ve never had before, you have to start doing things you’ve never done before. And why the majority is always wrong.)

Philosophy and physics are like 2 twins separated and birth and brought up in different families – at the heart of it, they’re fundamentally similar. If you understand physics, you can understand how everything in the world works and interacts with each other. And if you understand philosophy you can …

Missing the point #6 & [Am I full of shit? #2]: Why am I getting a tattoo of Snufkin today?* (Especially since he’s maybe the last person who’d see the point in getting one) *Actually,2 of him and 2 of what he says.

What’s the point of tattoos? I don’t know and it might be different for every person, but today I’m getting this done on one arm: And this on the other: With this text somewhere too: It’s so exciting… Things which you have no control over… You can see a great …

The philosophy of: Robert California – In any situation –awkward, uncomfortable, weird, unusual, difficult or whatever– comfort is controlled by you

There’s a lot of reasons Robert California is one of the greatest fictional characters there ever was and here’s another one. When two people start talking about personal relationship shit in front of him, they start to feel bad for him and pitifully tell him, ‘I’m sorry this must make …

The philosophy of: Martin Pistorius – What makes us human is communication. It’s not ‘Actions speak louder than words.’ It’s actually vice versa that matters more.

Communication is what makes us human, enabling us to connect on the deepest level with those around us — telling our own stories, expressing wants, needs and desires, or hearing those of others by really listening. All this is how the world knows who we are. So who are we without it? – Martin Pistorius Imagine not …

Was Socrates taking the piss? [pt.2] – Does saying ‘There’s only one thing I know – that I know nothing’ actually mean you’re saying you know TWO things?

This is something my girlfriend suggested to me after yesterday’s post on the better way to approach knowledge and whether Socrates was taking the piss. If Socrates said ‘There’s only one thing I know – that I know nothing.’, doesn’t that mean that he’s saying he actually knows TWO things? …

The philosophy of: The 1975-The Sound (& Kanye West) – Facing your flaws, weaknesses and faults builds strength. Distracting and deluding yourself makes you vulnerable and fragile (+ my experiment doing the opposite of Kanye).

Kanye has this picture on his living room wall: And it’s there because as he says, ‘Well, I gotta cheer for me before anyone else can cheer for me.’ But isn’t that relying on something else, something out of your control, to give you self worth? Say the picture gets …
