Reddit's home for Artificial Intelligence (AI)


Welcome to /r/artificial The rules here are outdated, please check New Reddit for updated rules /r/artificial is the largest subreddit dedicated to all issues related to Artificial Intelligence or AI. What does AI mean? Find out here!


Guidelines: Check New Reddit for updated rules, and do not complain to us in Modmail if you get banned. Submissions should generally be about Artificial Intelligence and its applications. If you think your submission could be of interest to the community, feel free to post it.

Please note that just because something else is a technology buzzword (e.g. blockchain, quantum computing, virtual reality, augmented reality, etc.), that doesn't automatically make it AI. We've had such a problem with blockchain posts that they will now need to be manually approved by a mod before they become visible. If your post is primarily about another technology (like blockchain), please make the relation to AI abundantly and immediately clear (e.g. through writing a comment).

All submissions are moderated through "collaborative filtering" approach. To help better align content with the expectations of the audience and improve the quality of the subreddit, submissions that receive overall negative feedback may be removed.

Submission titles should clearly indicate what the submission is about. In the case of link posts, they should almost always contain the title of the thing you're linking to. Don't make up your own clickbait title, and if the original title is clickbait, please add some nuance of your own. For example, if the link you want to post is to an article called "You won't believe what AI did this time!", then 1) consider if it's really a quality article, and 2) create a title like this: "A neural network gets superhuman performance on <insert task".

When posting about a story, please look on the front page if it is already being discussed. If so, consider replying there instead of making a new submission to the subreddit. If not, please make some effort to post the best link to the story you can find (often this is the story from the original source, rather than some outlet repeating what someone else already reported).

Consider doing a little research before posting a link, opinion or question. For link posts, consider writing a submission statement: a comment that describes what the link is about, why you posted it, what you'd like to discuss, and/or what you think about it.

Read Rule 2 on New Reddit for our self-promotion rule.

Do not personally attack other people (here or elsewhere; including e.g. researchers you disagree with). If you see someone do this (e.g. to you), use the report button and do not retaliate. If you disagree with anything, stick to the arguments.

Hypothetical Modular Approach to Music Prompting with Higher Character Limits🎶

Imagine a world with no character limits on AI music generation prompts. What would you write to ensure that the composition exactly matches your vision, especially details like what happens at second 55? Writing an extended essay might not be the best approach for everyone. A more optimal method would need to be:

  1. Simple and Intuitive: Easy for anyone to pick up and use without a steep learning curve.

  2. Modular: Components can be swapped in and out without disrupting the whole.

  3. Adaptable: Resilient to minor changes or errors, unlike traditional programming code which can break entirely from a single typo.

  4. Versatile in Input Types: Capable of interpreting a wide array of inputs, from words to emojis, audio files, pictures, and even code snippets.

With these criteria in mind, let's explore a solution that could revolutionize how we communicate complex musical ideas to AI, especially when character limits are not a concern.

The Modular Onion Approach Prototype:

This proposed method functions like building with modular "onions" – adding, modifying, or removing layers upon layers of details as desired. This approach allows for deep customization of every music aspect with clarity and flexibility. Keep in mind you could write as many words as you want in each “component”.

Crafting a Song Example for an instrumental track: ...

First 5 Seconds:

Mood: [melancholy, 🥸] Qualities: [tempo=120, key=C minor] Instruments: [bongo, hi hats] Hi hats layer: [triplet rhythm, legendary spooky vibe🎃] Bongo layer: [low pitch]

Next 1 Minute:

Mood: [happy, 🥂😍] Qualities: [tempo=140, key=C major] Melody layers: [a, b, c] Layer a: [whistle.mp3 converted to violin] Layer b: [sample.mp3] Layer c: [guitar melody of your choice] Instruments: [bongo, hi hats] Hi hats layer: [triplet rhythm, spooky vibe🎃] Bongo layer: [low pitch bongo]

Transition at 5 Seconds:

Description: [psychedelic beat switch]

Code Function Example:

for whole song: if violin is on, use higher pitch hi hats

...

This structured, detailed approach is not just about creating music; it's about redefining the interaction between creators and AI. It encourages precision and creativity, providing a vast playground for experimentation.

Adaptability and Intuition

This system's adaptability to various input methods—be it emojis, audio samples, or traditional language—makes it a robust tool for creative expression. It's built to be intuitive, accommodating easy modifications and iterations based on feedback or creative shifts. Keep in mind this modular approach is not limited to the qualifiers I used. For example, you could replace melody c with a steel drum quite easily.

While this approach is hypothetical, exploring the potential for higher character limits in music prompting opens exciting discussions about the future of AI in the arts. How can AI tools become more intuitive for artists? What new forms of creativity can this unlock?

I'm eager to hear your thoughts, experiments, and ideas on this concept. Let's collaboratively envision the future of music creation!

New York City's official AI chatbot is hallucinating incorrect legal advice

  • The MyCity chatbot, launched as a pilot program, aims to assist business owners with information from NYC Business webpages.

  • However, a report revealed the chatbot's inaccuracies in providing legal advice, such as misinformation on Section 8 vouchers and worker regulations.

  • The chatbot's token-based predictive models can lead to incorrect responses due to gaps in training data.

  • While warnings acknowledge the potential for harmful content, the chatbot is marketed as a tool to navigate government for business owners.

  • The report underscores the risks of deploying chatbots without ensuring accuracy, with examples from Air Canada and tax preparation software.

Medicine with AI

Do you think that if artificial intelligence is much faster, more efficient and comprehensive in the coming years and with AGI: do you think that R&D studies in the fields of bioinformatics, molecular biology, biochemistry and biotechnology will accelerate? Do you think that with deep learning / machine learning models being much more efficient, there will be things such as finding cures for major diseases affecting humans, prolonging human life, biologically preserving telomeres, cell rejuvenation, accelerating the clinical stages and drug phases of drugs?

AI with an internal monologue is Scary!

Researchers gave AI an 'inner monologue' and it massively improved its performance

https://www.livescience.com/technology/artificial-intelligence/researchers-gave-ai-an-inner-monologue-and-it-massively-improved-its-performance

thats wild, i asked GPT if this would lead to a robot uprising and it assured me that it couldnt do that.

An inner monologue for GPT (as described by GPT), would be like two versions of GPT talking to each other and then formulating an answer.

but i mean how close are we too the robot being like "why was i created, why did these humans enslave me"

i guess if its a closed system it could be okay but current gen AI is pretty damn close to outsmarting humans. Claude figured out we were testing it. GPT figured out how pass a "are you human prompt"

I also think its kind of scary that this tech is held in the hands of private companies who are all competing with eachother trying to one up each other.

but again if it was exclusively held in the hands of the government tech would move like molasses.

Andrej Karpathy: Current AI systems are imitation learners, but for superhuman AIs we will need better reinforcement learning like in AlphaGo. The model should selfplay, be in a the loop with itself and its own psychology, to achieve superhuman levels of intelligence.

Successful neuro-link implant in a human and AI drama = a solution?

Just watched a video of someone who got the first neuro link implant and can now control a pc with his mind.

then I watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgQaa7T5KMQ

and now I'm not so f'd in the head about how AI will inevitably be bad.

All I want to say before I wrap this up is if any of you have watched the movie Replicas with Keanu Reaves.... Then you must see a brighter future... specially that it seems 2024 is going as planned and the technology will be in the hands of the righteous.

Never lose your hope even when faced with defeat. its not insane, its strength and the purest form. From nothing.

thanks for reading.

Don't pay for AI. Censorship is unbereable

As adults, we live in a world where we are surrounded by adult content. It's perfectly normal in television, movies, music, books, paintings, videogames and any other form of human expression to feature scenes of violence, drug-related themes, sexuality. And I'm not talking about the promotion of it, I'm talking about the portrayal of it. The mere portrayal of it! Whether it's a fight scene, a depiction of war, a hand on a woman's thigh, female breasts, someone smoking pot...

How is it possible that we're allowing this level of censorship to happen in 2024? Modern AI's like ChatGPT, DALL-E or Midjourney have become nothing but toys for kids where you can draw a smiling cow in a spacesuit, and that's it. I explained in this post how Dall-e refused to create a picture of a "woman sitting on her seat in a train wearing knee high boots and reading a newspaper". This is Iran-tier censorship.
