AI = Artificial Intelligence. Means it is fake intelligence.

Means, the real intelligence can still out smart it. Thus humans will *continue to* control machines for a long time. Up until they are self-replicating, self-repairing, self-sustaining, and self-aware.

FTFY.

Machine do what they are asked to do.
Some machine learning algorithms (such as artificial neural networks) are based of the biomimetism principle, but the result is not even close to the reality.
Biomimetism implies two things :
-Our comprehension of the living is still very limited. Hence, genetic algorithm, artificial neural network, etc... are by essence incomplete. You can see this that way : an artificial neural network is 10% (or 20%, it is very subjective here) nature inspired, and 80% pure engineering.
-Even with a full comprehension of nature processes, the algorithms outcoming of our attempt to mimic them wouldn't copy 100% of the reality, cause you know, organic cells (or organic processes in general) > transistors. Maybe this will change with major disruption in technology, for example a fully functionnal quantic computer.

For now, biomimetism only gives us some general paradigm that emerged naturally. And it works because Nature is just damn well made. But as long as we don't understand the truly meaning and processes of a thought, we'll never have a sentient machine. Scifi stories where some creator kinda randomly create true (artificial) intelligence is pure fantasy.

We already have rudimentary self-replicating algorithms. They're also self-repairing/amending, which is why algorithmic trading with Machine Learning works so well compared to traditional and commercially available trading bots. Considering that these algorithms automatically adjust as new data rolls in, you could already say that they are self-aware (of their relevant metrics) as well. The reasons why these algorithms aren't shitting on human intelligence is mostly due to a lack of sufficiently intertwined networks, but we're slowly getting there.
As far as "outsmarting" these algorithms is concerned. That's only partially true. We can screw with AI algorithms by analyzing precisely how they assimilate data (which doesn't work with all algorithms because it's sometimes impossible to tell what is going on and they're pretty much a blackbox). But they are usually significantly better than humans by a large margin at solving specific tasks. As mentioned earlier, the only reason they aren't capable of solving general tasks is because they're currently specialized algorithms for specific tasks. Once we can efficiently connect many such specialized "modules" together, humans will seem like complete retards compared to AI. Which raises the questions of whether or not we want to merge or inevitably have AI as our near-literal God.

I would argue the contrary in continuation of my above ramblings. We don't need to mimic the human brain perfectly. Humans simply don't compare to specific task algorithms. All it takes to trump us is connecting modules together whilst allowing for the creation of new ones by the algorithm itself. And as I've mentioned, the first algorithms to create code already exist. So either of higher computational power or more efficient algorithms should be enough and reality both of these will get satisfied over time.

We didn't copy birds or fishes either to fly in the skies or swim through the oceans either, and we're significantly better at both of these tasks. There is no compelling reason to create a carbon copy of the human brain for this specific purpose.

Yeah yeah. I get you.

There are running bots. They are good at running. Like that cheeta bot.
There are aim bots. They can aim. See stuff.
So there's robocop right there, but how does it know good from evil, right from wrong. It's going to make a mistake.

There are game bots. They play chess. They play go. That's all they know to play. So give them a break if they beat humans in a game. That's the only thing they can do anyway. They still had a hard time until recently and required massive computation and storage.

There are self driving cars. We will see how they improve. I still like to drive my own, for now.

There are sex bots. They have "family" mode too. So they try to talk to your friends and guests like normal. They try. They're still better at their first function.

There are trading bots. They buy low and sell high. The whole day. Keep the spreads small, and it will be profit. Still doesn't beat a half decent hedge fund manager, you know, the real ones that make good decisions. (And yes, humans make bad decisions too.)

Now, that's real. But nothing beats a group of humans, creating a coin from scratch, and singing it to the high heavens raking in billions of dollars and disappearing in a puff of smoke when they get a cease and desist letter. However, we call those guys scammers.

How do humans know right from wrong? Good from evil? Humans make mistakes all the time, and they make more of them than an AI will for a very simple reason. An AI can be trained on countless of human generations worth of data within a few hours to a few months before ever being put to use. A single human however, can't just go and live through all of human history before setting foot into the real world.

There are self driving cars. We will see how they improve. I still like to drive my own, for now.
I feel like whoever opens up a few car parks/racing tracks just before self-driving cards tip over human driven cars will make a fortune.

There are trading bots. They buy low and sell high. The whole day. Keep the spreads small, and it will be profit. Still doesn't beat a half decent hedge fund manager, you know, the real ones that make good decisions. (And yes, humans make bad decisions too.)
Most hedge funds get floored by the average equity market growth rates. And those that are the most competitive are highly data driven and rely on machine learning. The amount of data that goes into the trading decisions by a decent bot is something that no human could ever dream of processing himself. Especially not in realtime. If ML isn't the norm in hedge funds yet, it's only because of a lack of ML talent due to the relatively young age of the industry and not because humans can outperform the best algorithms.


Now, that's real. But nothing beats a group of humans, creating a coin from scratch, and singing it to the high heavens raking in billions of dollars and disappearing in a puff of smoke when they get a cease and desist letter. However, we call those guys scammers.
I'm actually surprised that this keeps working. Beeeeeeeeeeeconneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeect was the most obvious scam that I've ever seen in my life. And people still ended up complaining about getting burnt. Unbelievable.

As the very first purpose of this is going to be "move randomly and kill everything that moves", it doesn't really matter to distinguish good from evil.

Merited by bitserve (1)

So, initial impressions of Lightning after a few days of puttering around, and throwing 0.3 some-odd BTC at funding channels.

"Ain't nobody gonna get rich running a node"

Was mentioning to my partner this morning, "I'm not sure this project is worth it"

The tech is kinda neato, tho, I guess.

I think I'm technically losing BTC right now fucking around with Lightning.

Anyway, off to see what the herd is up to.

Fuck this cold. Shit startin' to irritate me, yo. Ain't built for this weather.

Can't believe I'm two weeks away from submitting my resignation.

Thanks for the follow up on your experience as a LN node.

I've got a few questions...

When you say it is not worth it, I think you mean that you don't see it is something that it is going to have an interesting ROI for you as an intermediary node... but you mean now, medium term or also in the future?

How is that you are technically losing BTC rigt now? Have you experienced some direct loss of BTC? (something which has been well advised by developers at current stage though).

I would be glad if by summer this year there is some real life usage of LN. For that we would need at least a very few early adopters retailers, exchanges, atm networks even if a very small minority. Not sure if I am being too optimistic with that target. What's you opinion about it?

Never argued the opposite. As I said, the current state of the art in machine learning doesn't do it and works fine (for a certain number of use cases).

No we didn't, but we just did like nature did for birds and fishes. Test, fail and try again.

Hell no we are not. It is like saying that machine are better at nailing stuff because they can nail much bigger stuff or much smaller stuff. Or better at math because they can do incredibly fast calculation. Yet, no machine ever won a nobel prize. As I said, living things are infinitely better, much more efficient, etc... (organic) machines than the one we can create.
Computer science coupled to engineering make marvelous things to help human, but they are still tools and will remain tools until a looooong time.

There seems to be a cost to fund a channel, and it appears that it's not worth it, just funding channels willy-nilly right now.

eg: I'll fund a channel with 1,000,000 SAT.

When the channel closes, for whatever reason, listfunds reveals I have a balance of 999,085 on my end.

oh god guys

I just woke up from this dream where coinbase had surprise listed some shitcoin I had never heard of from like 200 down the list.

so relieved right now

LOL... a lot of people (including me) are getting similar dreams these days... Bitcoin is sometimes $100,000 in my dream and sometimes $100... But then, right after waking up, when I open Delta/Blockfolio, the situation is like this:

Good morning Bitcoinland.

Bouncing along sideways I see.... currently $8720USD/$11000CAD (Bitcoinaverage).

The buying opportunity continues but these 4-digit prices won't last forever.

I'll need to buy about $15kCAD in late March. I hope I don't have to spend a whole bitcoin to do it.

Gawd, I hate spending Bitcoin. Coins are for holding, not spending.

When you say it is not worth it, I think you mean that you don't see it is something that it is going to have an interesting ROI for you as an intermediary node... but you mean now, medium term or also in the future?

There seems to be a cost to open a channel, and it appears that it's not worth it, just opening channels willy-nilly right now.

eg: I'll fund a channel with 1,000,000 SAT.

When the channel closes, for whatever reason, listfunds reveals I have a balance of 999,085 on my end.

Opening/closing a channel is done by a bitcoin transaction on bitcoin network. Haven't you heard of bitcoin tx fees?

Yes yes, I know... which is why I'm admitting my initial experiments with going hog-wild funding channels, willy-nilly, was an ill-conceived idea.

Going to need to re-think the game-theory of this.

A new stock listing in Canada will soon give investors their first chance to buy into the booming market for computer chips driving most of the world’s bitcoin mining farms.

Isn't there a way to share the fees for using your intermediary node as it is suppossed to be, or do you mean your own channels you open for yourselve?

I wouln't be surprised if the "cost sharing" algorithm isn't implemented yet, but I assumed it was.
