Ran into this little tidbit about the whole AI question, along with my general befuddlement with modern society, and especially the part where people actually believe all this stuff we consume, literally acquire only to toss out as soon as possible for something news, bigger, better, . . .
It’s late and I should actually be sleeping, but sometimes gotta burn the candle at both ends. First little G starting around 5am, weather was nice in the afternoon, so little B and I were able to squeeze in at least one walk through the forest and then by and by the little fella didn’t drop off till 11pm. I’m heading back home tomorrow which is Sunday so he had a pass, besides he wanted to hang with me. It was grand reconnecting, 10 months a lot of growing going on. So I’m wondering what the hell gives us the right to so flippantly demolish their shot at a decent life and future. It’s horrendous, but what’s to be done, . . .
This is AI:
Using energy creates CO2, the primary greenhouse gas emitted by humans. In the atmosphere, greenhouse gases like CO2 trap heat near the Earth’s surface, causing the temperature of the Earth to rise and throwing delicate ecosystems off balance.
“We have an energy consumption crisis,” said Gerry McGovern, author of the book World Wide Waste. That doesn’t even touch on the actually material needed to build and populate this infrastructure.
Good question. I spent a little time googling HGI (Human General Intelligence) etc. and most the suggests revolve around AI and its implications. “HGI” as you put it, does seem neglected.
Now, you see, to my way of thinking, that seems a real shame. I mean we’d be way a head of this game if we’d have spent more time learning how to come to grips with ourselves first. But, western society has always had this headlong rush into a materialistic future with its easy disregard for the past, people as well as creations.
