And once again, we see the real mechanism by which terrorism "wins". Israel has hurt itself in its confusion.

Especially given that this particular comment is 90% quotes from some other author.

We've got LLMs now that can do that. Sorry, you've been replaced. Please gather your things into this box and cheer up.

If it saves Ukraine from Russian occupation I'll at least give them a favorable mention. Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

Indeed. If the US government were truly dancing on the puppet strings of the arms industry right now there'd be a ton of resources heading to Ukraine.

Looks like we're in another period of "double-check every headline to see if it's real or from the Onion" for me...

I think there's a significant difference between "neutral" and "diverse".

For example, Reddit is big enough that if you find yourself holding an unpopular opinion in some particular subreddit and you're getting battered with downvotes, you can probably find some other similar subreddit that's more friendly to whatever view you've got that's drawing ire. People speak derisively of "bubbles" and "echo chambers", but really, why should I stick around and try to engage with people who just don't want you around? Communities naturally tend to segregate themselves along ideological lines like this.

Here on the Fediverse the population's too small to support quite so many diverse communities yet, unfortunately. So if you've got an unpopular minority view you can end up stuck with either routinely finding yourself serving as a punching bag or just not posting. That's no fun.

Yeah, so many people are confidently stating "LLMs can't think like humans do!" When we're actually still pretty unclear on how humans think.

Sure, an LLM on its own may not be an AGI. But they're remarkably closer than we would have predicted they could get just a few years ago, and it may well be that we just need to add a bit more "special sauce" (memory, prompting strategies, perhaps a couple of parallel LLMs that specialize in different types of reasoning) to get them over the hump. At this point a lot of the research isn't going into simply "make it bigger!", it's going into "use LLMs smarter."

To be fair, that description of being piled on by angry people who are looking for an excuse to be angry could easily describe a lot of threads I've been in on the Fediverse lately. Seems like there's an unfortunate mood going around right now.

Actually, you can do exactly that. Fork them.

You can't force the people who are using Github to follow you, of course. But that's every individual's choice.

You think Microsoft is the only "evil corporation" among these? That's very naive. Any hosting service will deplatform users when they can see a profit to be made from doing so.
