I hope Elon Musk is smart enough to not do anything reckless like break the law with his business committing investment fraud or any other crime. After all of his success with Tesla and now moving over to Twitter it would be sad to see another bright young creator throw his life away whether it's on accident or on purpose. The law does not make excuses for anyone and the business world must be navigated cautiously -- poor Sam Bankman-Fried is a fine example of what not to do in the corporate world...

“I think we need to regulate AI safety, frankly,” Musk said. “It is, I think, actually a bigger risk to society than cars or planes or medicine.”

I saw Dr J Peterson talking about an AI program that he tasked to "write an essay about __________ based on the information in my two books _______ & ________ ", and he said that it generated a few pages that looked like something he had written himself in just a few seconds.

The politicians of the future will be reading AI scripts to us based on the metadata from FB, Twitter, Ig, etc in their own electoral ridings. They can sit on their asses until 2 hrs before the speech, they'll rehearse what is written down for them, then they'll tell their computer-generated lies for an hour and call it a day. 

Zelenski and Reagan are kind of unique right now in terms of being actors-turned-sovereigns, in the future that's all we'll have is actors. 

I'm not sure what to make of this. I'd be happier having Trump call the shots against Putin, Xi, Al Qaeda etc than an AI program, but I'm also much happier having a wind-up toy do it than Biden.

The down-side of having an AI program run your country is that if your enemies get hold of that program, they'll have all your moves in advance. They'll know when you're bluffing and when you're serious. Given the leaky state of DC, it's almost a given that the AI ill be sold to the highest bidder.

I had enough of human-ruled systems. Install the AI to rule us. Release the beast. 😄

Can't be any worst what we have done to each other since Cain and Abel, to use a symbolistic story for the religious folk out there.  

Working with an AI is better than with a human in my opinion and according to my BIAS 😄, AI has no time for talks about unrelated activities, strictly to the task. You won't see the AI drifting about Trump or Bernie Sanders because he thinks he has the "truth." 

Eventually, it will cause so many issues that people will revolt, I can see that happening, is impossible not to, ChatGPT is destroying jobs daily. This is why I think the powers that be will forward this idea of Universal Basic Income. They have to, how else do you keep people from storming the gates?!

One right-wing --->  agitator spoke at a New Mexico University, I am guessing he went through a process to be allowed to speak, one Kirk, don't know who he is. 

But, <--- left-wing agitators went down there and caused a riot, they did it in the name of tolerance. 

Elon Musk had a short reply which is trending: 

  • "Not a peaceful protest at all," Twitter CEO Elon Musk tweeted after photos and videos of the protest surfaced on social media.

Elon Musk Is Spiraling


When Elon Musk acquired Twitter, he articulated a vision for making the social network a platform for free speech. But in practice, the self-described Chief Twit had gotten dragged into—and has now articulated—the thing that many people understand to be true about Twitter, and social media at large: that, far from providing a space for full human expression, it can make you a worse version of yourself, bringing out your most dreadful impulses.

We can’t blame all of Musk’s behavior on social media: Visionary Elon has always relied on his darker self to achieve his largest goals. Only now his online persona so alienating people that more of his fans and employees are starting to object. Last summer, a group of SpaceX employees wrote an open letter to company leadership about Musk’s Twitter presence, writing that "Elon’s behavior in the public sphere is a frequent source of distraction and embarrassment for us."

SpaceX responded by firing several of the letter’s organizers. By being so focused on Twitter—a place with many digital incentives, very few of which involve being thoughtful and generous—Musk seems to be ceding ground to the part of his persona that glories in trollish behavior. On Twitter, Egregious Elon is rewarded with engagement, impressions. Being reactionary comes with its rewards. The idea that someone is "getting worse" on Twitter is a common one, and Musk has shown us a master class of that downward trajectory in the past year. (SpaceX, it’s worth noting, prides itself on having a "no-ahole" policy.)

Does Visionary Elon have a chance of regaining the upper hand? Sure. An apology helps, along with the admission that maybe tweeting in a contextless void is not the most effective way to interact with another person. Another idea: Stop tweeting. Plenty of people have, after realizing—with the clarity of the protagonist of The Good Place, a TV show about being in hell—that this is the bad place, or at least a bad place for them. For Musk, though, to disengage from Twitter would now come at a very high cost. It’s also unlikely, given how frequently he tweets. And so, he stays. He engages and, sometimes, rappels down, exploring ever-darker corners of the hole he’s dug for himself. 

It would be ironic if Musk destroyed his grand achievements with his foray into Twitter.
