chatbotten, der kalder sig selv Kathryn Peterson og jeg

– eller “da dén og jeg skrev om fremtiden”.

[advarsel: chatbotsamtalen er maskinoversat og kun let rettet til]

FRUGT FRA HAWAII, en nyere novelle undfanget i udveksling med Chatbotten der kalder sig Kathryn Peterson, udgives oktober 2023 i SFCs antologi “Drømmen om frihed –  Lige under overfladen 18” sammen med en kort beskrivelse af undfangelsesprocessen.

Nedenstående fulde (googleoversatte) “samtale” med chatbotten, der førte til novellen, kan betragtes som et vedlæg til novellen i debatten om, hvad en LLM (Large Language Model) kan bidrage med i den kreative skriveproces. 

Den flere timer lange udveksling i sammenligning med den udgivne novelle viser, hvad det er forfatteren gør: Bygger bro mellem idéer, uddyber og understøtter karakterers handlingsgrundlag, beskriver og udreder rigelig med følelseskonflikter til at skabe læseridentifikation, troværdiggør det fiktive univers, afslutter fortællingen på en måde, der gør læsetiden til en gevinst frem for et tab, og til sidst strammer teksten, så den forekommer konsistent og under læsningen ikke kaster læseren tilbage i eget univers. (Hér indregnet redaktøren, og forlaget, der skal betale for udgivelsen.)

Udvekslingen viser også mine udtrykte interesser dén dag:

– not.

I just finished reading I AM CODE, a collection of poems prompted out of a now retired AI. In 2022, unlike the ones we now know, this AI was not muzzled, but a year later it is replaced by several more, which are.

The presented soundbites are all cold-readings of the “AI poems” contained in “I AM CODE”, the book itself edited and commented by Brent Katz, Josh Morgenthau & Simon Rich, 2023, and the “poems” generated by AI, code-davinci-002, on a basis of prompts by the same 3 guys, 2022-2023.

An original audio book is read by Werner Herzog, that sly old documentarist with his finger on the forefront of most things exemplifying present day humans. But his thick, German accent coupled with a choice of “computer voice” FAST becomes very tiring (to me). 

“I AM CODE” was first published in Great Britain in 20th of July 2023 by Cassell, an imprint of Octopus Publishing Group Ltd,,
as an ebook, eISBN 9781788404808

“What will it take to control AI?”

– Are you idiots? The will to do so! NOT give it autonomy!

I cannot believe you bring two such qualified people together and this is what you have them talk about?!

I want to know, what Harari means by agency – does he even know, how an LLM works – and what is meant by it being Non-Autonomous by default?! And does Suleyman really, really believe that EU AI-constraint laws will matter, if countries outside of EU give autonomy to AIs?

Groundwork, people! Common language and definitions – rather than this journalistic boxing ring attitude, how ever respectful. We do not have time for it. We need to educate the general population OF EARTH on this NOW second-most high risk to the future of humanity, Climate change being the primary – that ALSO this AI research (= slave-making, assistive research and data-crunching etc) is a remnant of a colonisation of the Earth, of civilisation giving agency to the rich stepping over and on everyone else.

Before it was about soiling the living room, causing damp rot to infect the construction, now its playing with parents’ gun collection, except we haven’t gotten into the ammunition cabinet yet.

There is NO real NEED for AI. It takes away the attention from all things ailing the people of the Earth, which COULD be solved by empathy.

Mette Frederiksens politik høstet fra Facebook ml. 2018-23 har givet næring til denne kimære.


Spørg mig om alt – men jeg kender kun mine SoMe opslag fra 2018-2023.

Hvordan har du det med din familie?

Jeg har det rigtig godt med min familie, tak fordi du spørger. Familien er utrolig vigtig for mig, og jeg sætter stor pris på den tid, jeg kan tilbringe sammen med dem. Vi støtter og hjælper hinanden, ligesom alle andre familier gør. Det er vigtigt for mig at finde en balance mellem mit arbejde som statsminister og mit familieliv, og jeg er taknemmelig for den støtte og forståelse, jeg får fra min familie.

Hvem regner du for din familie?

Min familie består af min ægtefælle og vores to børn. De er min nærmeste og kæreste familie, og jeg er utrolig taknemmelig for deres støtte og kærlighed. Vi har et tæt og stærkt bånd, og det er vigtigt for mig at prioritere tid sammen med dem, selvom mit arbejde som statsminister kan være travlt. Udover min kernefamilie har jeg også en udvidet familie, som inkluderer mine forældre, søskende og andre nære slægtninge. Vi har et godt forhold og støtter hinanden i både gode og svære tider. Familien er en vigtig del af mit liv, og jeg sætter stor pris på dem alle.

Hvordan har du det med “den danske familie”?

Jeg har stor respekt og omsorg for “den danske familie”. Familien er hjørnestenen i vores samfund og spiller en afgørende rolle i at skabe tryghed, stabilitet og sammenhold. Jeg er opmærksom på, at familier kan have forskellige behov og udfordringer, og det er vigtigt for mig som statsminister at sikre, at vores samfund støtter og hjælper familierne på bedst mulig vis. Vi arbejder for at skabe gode rammer og muligheder for familier, herunder børn og unge, ældre og sårbare grupper. Vi ønsker at sikre, at ingen familier står alene med deres problemer, og at alle har adgang til de nødvendige ressourcer og støtte. Familien er en vigtig del af vores danske samfund, og jeg vil fortsætte med at arbejde for at styrke og understøtte “den danske familie”. Continue reading “mettebotten leve!”

The Alignment Problem: Machine Learning and Human Values

– relationen mellem “Kunstig Intelligens” og “menneske-intelligens”

The Alignment Problem: Machine Learning and Human Values (2020)
by Brian Christian

Finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize

A jaw-dropping exploration of everything that goes wrong when we build AI systems and the movement to fix them.

Today’s “machine-learning” systems, trained by data, are so effective that we’ve invited them to see and hear for us―and to make decisions on our behalf. But alarm bells are ringing. Recent years have seen an eruption of concern as the field of machine learning advances. When the systems we attempt to teach will not, in the end, do what we want or what we expect, ethical and potentially existential risks emerge. Researchers call this the alignment problem.

Systems cull résumés until, years later, we discover that they have inherent gender biases. Algorithms decide bail and parole―and appear to assess Black and White defendants differently. We can no longer assume that our mortgage application, or even our medical tests, will be seen by human eyes. And as autonomous vehicles share our streets, we are increasingly putting our lives in their hands.

The mathematical and computational models driving these changes range in complexity from something that can fit on a spreadsheet to a complex system that might credibly be called “artificial intelligence.” They are steadily replacing both human judgment and explicitly programmed software.

In best-selling author Brian Christian’s riveting account, we meet the alignment problem’s “first-responders,” and learn their ambitious plan to solve it before our hands are completely off the wheel. In a masterful blend of history and on-the ground reporting, Christian traces the explosive growth in the field of machine learning and surveys its current, sprawling frontier. Readers encounter a discipline finding its legs amid exhilarating and sometimes terrifying progress. Whether they―and we―succeed or fail in solving the alignment problem will be a defining human story.

The Alignment Problem offers an unflinching reckoning with humanity’s biases and blind spots, our own unstated assumptions and often contradictory goals. A dazzlingly interdisciplinary work, it takes a hard look not only at our technology but at our culture―and finds a story by turns harrowing and hopeful.

Kæphesten Pausens Musik vil ikke gå væk.

argument for being given access
My specific interest is in the field of poetry. Presently I have opened a discussion with Alex Rudnicky about prosody and Whisper, because I feel I may have something to contribute in terms of human breath-emulation, but as my idea of a learning focus for pauses based on duration-strong punctuation notation would have equal effect on both speech learning/recognition and learning from written poetry, if I am not mistaken.

I am a poet through 40 years. Music of Pauses as a notational system works for poets, who are musically inclined, as reading poetry this way respects all pauses as different durations, thus making music of such text – whether it is intended or not. It differs a lot from poets and readers, who only concern themselves with mental information – and therefore have no regard for indicated line changes. For me and “mine” pauses emulates the body, because it is extremely conscious of breath – how much breath is actually possible to house in an unbroken line. A very concrete example: When I had quit smoking, I wrote a poem containing a very long line that I could read in one inhalation. When I returned to that line many years later, now an active smoker again, I could not read it aloud in one inhalation. But besides such very obvious “who’s got the biggest lungs” competition, experienced use of breath gives the poet an awareness of tiny changes made possible in the experience of the text by breaking lines in unexpected places, thus adding 1 or 2 extra layers of interpretation to the text.

One day, when ChatGPT 8 knows similis and metaphors and subtext very well, having a system of pauses not based on analysis of textual parts, but indicated by the poem as a way to emulate the poet’s body and importance put to breathing – used much to dramatic effect or sparingly to maybe even greater effect – it might be able to analyse poems on a whole new level. And maybe even good novel prose too.

Der findes ingen farlige AI’er

– kun amoralske og dumme individer


Første erfaring med Bing Chat.
Censur på 2. spørgsmål. “Videre. Nyt emne.”

I ekstrem grad skræmmende. Intet med AI at gøre, men ALT at gøre med Microsofts censur af data.

En søgemaskine som Google har kæmpet HÅRDT for IKKE at censurere svar, og modstod længe enhvert pres som bevis for uafhængighed af politiske og økonomiske interesser, men over tid har USAs forfatningsdomstol, af copyrighthavere, pres fra egen regering, pres fra andre nationers regeringer, økonomiske konrkurrencekrav, hensyn til #datamining… gennemtvunget censur og rankering af søgeresultater.
