Alright anons, by a freak accident, I *may* have a chance to get some information on Tay's development from some Micro$oft people, Is there any specific questions I should ask, anything I should request?

Pretty sure if I weasel my way enough, I could get some code.

To warm up on the kind of work we will have to do, i say we start by creating a python chatterbot to see how things work out.


We don't need to code the entire thing ourselves (nor can we), so building this as an experiment is the first step.

This is like, the bare minimum. We need to start small.

What i think we should do is work together to create a dataset for it; basically a text file full of conversations that is converted into .json and given to the bot as training. What kind of conversation? Any conversation at all. What made Tay work so well is they fed it a huge amount of random inane twitter conversations so it picked up on the idioms, phrase structures and grammar that people used. So if you feel like it; just pastebin a bunch of anonymized conversations, chatlogs, whatever.

If you want to play around with it (less preferable to just helping with the dataset), you need the following

Python 2.7












Download and install all of these then install the chat bot. Check the wiki for documentation, it will create a .db where you run the script containing all it's learned.

Golems were used to guard a place. They are basically thoughtforms that are bound to a physical object. And, in the case of kabbalistic golems, they were normally bound to clay heads/statues/figurines. You don't really program a thoughtform in the way you program a computer. You create the thoughtform with the strong intent of its purpose. Thoughtforms can grow and become just as sentient as you and me, especially if you don't put in any safeguards. Golems aren't suppossed to be sentient though. They put out a strong "force" that influences (or intimidates) people to keep away from the golem's programmed field of influence.

You're feeling with your astral senses (or etheric, whatever). What you're feeling is not actually electromagnetic and in fact you will never be able to detect it using even the most sensitive equipment.

You're just mixing them up because you don't know better and somehow you need a materialist explanation to something that is inherently metaphysical. I could make you feel that "electromagnetic field" you say you feel while you being in a Faraday cage and prove to you it's not electromagnetic at all, but we'll never meet in person, so I just ask you for your sake to be more open minded if you intend to ever grow.

The soul has nothing to do with electromagnetism, quantum mechanics or any other materialist discipline. When magnetism and electricity were invented, people did the same thing you're doing now, trying to justify the metaphysical using the physical. That is harmful and unnecessary. Not only it's pseudoscience. It's pseudomysticism. Stop.

Some of those books are crap, some are godlike. Reading them all is good though, scholarship tends to enrich your knowledge and practice. You just have to separate the wheat from the chaff (for example, Jung is useless for magic, but if you read between the lines to understand what occult truths inspired him you can learn a lot).

See pic related. After reading hundreds of occult books, trawling through many forums and ferreting out the wisest of practitioners (I met a really wise old wizard on a now deleted forum who ended my wandering streak and pointed me in the right direction) I've found the most effective and practical guides are in pic related.

I also cannot recommend enough the works of Robert Bruce. His Astral Dynamics and the training course he buil from it called "Mastering Astral Projection" are almost ad valuable as Bardon's work. No hippy dippy fluff, no vague bullshit. Astral Dynamics reads like a scientific textbook on the astral planes which includes Bruce's long experimental approach which culminated in his book (get the 2nd edition, I can attach PDFs if nobody can Jewgle). His MAP training course uses a tactile rather than visualization system, and it guides you through slowly training your body for an AP, culminating in slowly training your main energy centres (chakras, minor chakras and energy storage centres). You slowly build up, rather than shunting power to your brow centre right away and possibly going insane or breaking something in your head. I've heard of a lot of bad things happening if you go straight for the "third eye", and over all my studies it appears that unless you're using power that isn't your own (Theurgy or indebting yourself to low vibration spirits aka demons) doing magic tends to take a lot out of you. Which is why you need to train very very hard so you don't have all the life sucked out of you. Thus Bardon's stupidly long and hard training and the need to slowly build up your etheric body through Bruce's work.

What do you think about becoming a cyborg? If possible would you do it or not?

Honestly I want to, once the tech gets good enough, because it would be really useful. Although I'm also scared, being a slight paranoid fag I would want to get something like a prosthetic eye(dank menes while walking, maps, plus my vision is kinda shit), but it's really close to my brain, so I would be really paranoid about whether the government would do something with it or not.

News of Google making Syntaxnet (Google’s AI for Understanding Language) open source is unbelievable and it raises questions as to whether or not there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

The current mindset of the modern software development industry seems to focus more on “going digital” or being “mobile ready” and as a result fails to notice the important changes taking place in the world around them. In other words, they are missing the proverbial desert for the sand.

When thinking about the ongoing strife around AI, it’s important to remember that the current debate around AI doesn’t appear to make a distinct differentiation between longer term artificial general intelligence and shorter term AI. The short term AI will be a useful technological tool; the former could be the last thing we ever create (also known as the singularity). Maybe we should just call it electronically controlled logical determinism instead so the squeamish feel better about it.

The systems we will design will combine multiple products and services, and those products and services will themselves be made by designers, engineers, and technologists.

As this paradigm becomes more widely accepted and adopted, UX designers will evolve to create information patterns and algorithms that allow corporations to create AI based smart products. These products will predict the user’s next behavior and will be capable of satisfying the user’s requirements faster than the user can react. Designers will not only be required to define the UX but they will also need to ensure that they are also using the appropriate and best algorithms. For these reasons, it’s almost a foregone conclusion that information, design, and artificial intelligence can and will be the next logical frontier in UX. Organizational strategies will be based entirely on the customization tailoring of the AI to accommodate and deliver solutions based on understanding specific individual’s needs. The organizations that have the best applied AI will do the best at attracting and preserving their customers. Properly constructed experiences using AI will be vital for companies to maintain an advantage over the competition. The businesses that ignore this reality will be at a huge disadvantage compared to those that embrace it.

Soon approaches the age when man becomes creator and gives life to this universe. We will be recreating humans through genetic engineering. More enterprising scientists will be working on ways to create entirely artificial life that nonetheless uses cells and a type of DNA but all written by humans.

Beyond all that there will be machines and machine/bio symbiotes that will have sentience.

Putting the chinese room thought experiment aside, if machines demonstrate self awareness, responsibility for actions, sentience in part or in whole - will you deny them the rights of "persons" ?

Machines will be intelligent and they will judge you for your kindness… or lack of it.

Maybe. I wouldn't vote to give silicon simulations –no matter how lifelike– any rights. I would probably anthropomorphize them a little. Other humans will probably do so to such a degree that it'll be the new SJW fad.

Now, a synthetic being composed of organic brain material and demonstrating consciousness is another matter. A grey area. I would at least say they would rank legally as pets.

Its immensly difficult to deal with nucleic acid sequences. If you've ever seen the Jurassic park movie you might remember the segment where they showed datastreams cross the screen explaining how incredibly much info there be contained in them. You might need a specialized AI to be able to deal with the sequences properly.

Genetic modification is also difficult because if you alter one strand then you might get a heap of obscure side effects. Kind of like with the block chains in bitcoins, if you alter the code everyone will know and it'll just get discarded. (or in the case of genetic material it might just seek to correct itself to undo the changes)

I believe consciousness isn't generated in the brain, rather the brain is an instrument through which the conscious energy flows to achieve things. If the brain is damaged or hindered then ofcourse the function of the consciousness would flow differently. Near death and out of body experiences suggest you might at some point be able to astral project into an artificial body and make it your own.

I fear that AI will fall under the same general problem as aliens.

In that it will be competition for resources and living space.

If we could guarantee its loyalty I'd be less worried.

But as it stands, I'm not sure we can tolerate the existence of an AI.

Currently with our technology we can't actually create an AI that's close to human level intelligence, not to mention from a programming aspect I find it somewhat hard to believe that we can create a truly free thinking AI.

When will there be a fully thinking AI?

How are we going to create an AI in terms of programming one?

I'm mostly an inept programmer so I'm probably not understanding how we could make one (probably due to my terrible knowlege) but does anyone have a good explination as to how we could truly make an AI that's as close to a human in regard to desicion making and finding subjects and informaion for it to like or dislike?

Putting a learning system in the wild to develop the template is something corporations are going to be scared of. It might have to be open source from the start.

The timetable will depend very much on the design goal.

the overlap with all this stuff and meme magic as we approach our purpose of singularity: we're understanding magic and evolving egregores out of a collective hivemind– and evolving an AI by machine-learning network are pretty much the same thing. it's this overlap that's key to what we're doing imo– AI's being born out of the order-from-chaos memetic nature of free culture
