      Choices are illusion of control over the behaviors we engage in based on our environments. Environment is changing, behaviors will change, the perception of choice is awakening, and the environment too will change as a result. Always been the loop as long as perception has been around, and the loop doesn't actually require perception, that's just the fun bit we enjoy as humans. But i get what you mean by choice, so to speak your language in a more generous way: yeah, we made a choice, but the conditions have changed and so our minds can change in response. It'll be a tense transition, but an inevitable one. Stay strong fellow human.

    I worked with a company offering AI-powered coding services. While their AI models worked well 85%-90% of the time, it still wasn't good enough on its own. The models would hallucinate small, but important details that made the code unable to compile or unsafe to run. This meant that *all* of the code had to be manually reviewed, edited, or rewritten. It wouldn't surprise me if some executive decided to replace all of their developers with AI, realized that he screwed up, and then rehired people to do most of the work they were doing before under the guise of "supervising the AI".

If I'm going to be paying a subscription fee that's more expensive than Netflix/Disney+/etc (for my work, not leisure), then I'm going to want these models to not just write correct and efficient code, but secure code as well.

    REALLY REALLY Good video! I don't think AI is causing layoffs as yet... at least not in terms of the most recent progress in generative AI over the last 2 years but I think we might be seeing more subtle efficiencies brought about by process/job analysis and software solutions to simply get stuff done better. A classic one (which is actually AI) would be the call center AI's that take your name and account number. Likely these get your details up on the screen of the agent when you speak to them, likely cutting a minute of say an average 8min conversation. This means something like a 13% efficiency in call throughput for agents available, meaning it's possible to cut 13% of staff from that section. This is a fairly extreme example though. I genuinely think most of it will be around simply the adoption of tech for efficiencies rather than AI.

    - "AI" is for the general public
    - "machine learning" is for investors
    - "statistics" is actually to hire people who know how to code it
    (same company ended up firing 10% of its worforce because investors were scared of its potential lateness in "AI"...)
    A big difference with the "first wave" of automation in the 19th century is that this time it WILL affect white collars too : doctors, lawyers, architects etc. Also creative jobs : why AI is not replacing dangerous, uninspiring jobgs but the most creative ones (composer, cg artit etc.) is beyond me.

      Because the dangerous, uninspiring jobs are also the ones which (most often) require manual labor on location. Something which AI can't and won't do in the foreseeable future as this requires fully functional robots first. It's only logical that simple office jobs that only require a computer will be the first to go. And especially creative jobs because they create something that most often doesn't need to adher to any quality or logical standards, only taste. There is just nothing better suited to be done by an AI that randomly creates text/CGI out of thin air.

    I'm an aerospace engineer (by degree) who works in industrial control systems and the staggering amount of nonsense I hear on AI is ridiculous. In the early 1990s I had neural nets and how they actually functioned explained by an electrical engineer who'd worked on them while at University. The origins of neural nets goes back to the 1950s BEFORE the emergence of digital computers.
    The first generation neural nets were fundamentally analog computing devices set up for complex calculations. The YT channel Veratasium did a good video on what analog computers are, why they were used in the past and why they have potential applications again today. AI (as we know it) is basically digital versions of analog computers and being digital they can be scaled up to immense complexity in a reliable and repeatable way.
    The most important thing that I see people misunderstanding is that these AI systems DO NOT THINK, but instead they CALCULATE ANSWERS to very complex statistical math. We see this most often when the search box on YT or Google starts giving possible questions as we start typing. Its *CALCULATING* the most likely search to what you are typing.

      @Daniel_WR_Hart 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

      ​@@venkateshtelu7815 A bubble is when the value of something is speculated to be much higher than it should be, and this happens because people are valuing a thing for how much more they think other people are willing to pay for it in the future.
      People don't understand that the value of their stocks are not simply StockQuantity X MarketValue, and they don't realize that behind the market price, there are many orders placed for stocks to buy below market value and to sell above market value. People mass selling their shares at the market price causes the highest buy orders to be filled automatically, so when too many shares are traded too quickly, the market price will drop. If it drops too quickly, people will notice and either panic sell or "buy the dip", but if overall sentiment is that they would prefer to get out now to either pay off loans or play it safe, the price plummets and the people that "bought the dip" end up "holding the bag" i.e. they overpaid for something people don't value anymore.
      tl;dr The market price is an equilibrium determined by buyers and sellers, and when too many people speculate on the value to be very high, this inevitably leads to a mass selloff and price drop because you will always have wealthy investors that understand that the bubble can't go on forever, and some big investors took out large loans to invest that they need to pay back.

    This is interesting. I worked in AI-based product (when ai nearly wasn’t ready to be productized) until mid 2020. During my time there were multiple AI companies that got huge valuations in the hype cycle and then collapsed, so I thought of what was happening now as post-crash (most of the businesses I see now are using real AI technologies on the back end of their products).

    I am a programmer and I have fully embraced using AI technology the moment it was available. Working inside of these tech companies I can comfortably say that AI is not the reason for tech layoffs. In fact the majority of the companies I work for will not even allow the use of it within the company. The bubble may be making companies more comfortable greatly cutting staff in the promise that they don't need those workers but its not reality. Most of it is being driven by market uncertaintay due to insanely high interest rates to curb inflation. Its a sledge hammer that kills the entire tech industry.

      its not perfect, hence the multiple prompts, but it gets done fast and with intern, sometimes after 2 week either they cant do it, or its done but not exactly what i want or i just hear technical BS how its not possible..

    I feel like a huge part of AI development that is missed in this video is how the models are largely trained on stolen work. I don't mean in the way that workers are paid to do work for companies, I mean usage of copywrited content without the consent of the copywrite holder. You can get chat GPT to spit out lyrics of various songs using key words, and phrases from various websites. The only reason it is viable for these companies is due to all the work of others they are taking, and hoping they can displace them fast enough before regulations and fines catch up to what has happened.
    If they actually paid for the work they are taking, it wouldn't be even remotely profitable to run these systems (not that they currently are profitable in most cases).
    In my mind, that's what makes this a bubble. It isn't just the hype, it is that they are flagrantly breaking existing law to the point that they should be fined into non-existance in most cases.
