Wittgenstein saw the human being as a living creature in the stream of life. "For it is human beings, not minds, who perceive and think, have desires and act, feel joy and sorrow."
I really fail to understand any preoccupation with AI.
Well personally I find it fascinating. I also find the current advance of technology fascinating. I remember when I was a kid with a C64 then an Amiga. Now I can purchase an NVIDIA Jetson Nano for a hell of a lot cheaper and start running my own Machine Learning experiments. Im a geeky techie at heart, so yeah I love that kind of thing.
Wittgenstein I am told swerved to avoid worms in the road when cycling. He published his Tractatus immediately after serving in WWI, having seen first hand the slaughter in the trenches. Then he literally signed away his fortune (millions) to his siblings, living the rest of his life from his earnings as a schoolteacher.
What REALLY matters in life cannot be expressed in words. It must be shown and lived.
AI spelling the end of the human race? I still fail to understand.
AI is like fire, fascinating and potentially dangerous. Some people say we are playing at being god, personally I believe it will be more akin to the story if Icarus.
Why do you not believe AI can be dangerous?
Also on the theme of God, lets say we create life. Should we be able to go old testament god on the life we create, if it goes wrong and seeks forbidden knowledge. If it eats the apple, for want of a metaphor?
