‘Godfather of A.I.’ Reverses Course, Quits Google to Warn About “Dangers” of Artificial Intelligence

From thegatewaypundit.com

Proclaimed the “Godfather of Artificial Intelligence”, 75-year old Turing prize winner Geoffrey Hinton joins several other tech pioneers and notables in warning of the impacts of artificial intelligence.  Hinton was partially responsible for the development of the AI technology that is used by the biggest companies in the tech industry according to the New York Times.

On Monday, Hinton, a decade-long Google employee, tweeted “In the NYT today, Cade Metz implies I left Google so that I could criticize Google.  Actually, I left so that I could talk about the dangers of AI without considering how this impacts Google.  Google has acted very responsibly.”

Hinton originally believed that we were 30 to 50 years away from reaching a critical point in AI development, however he now says “I no longer think that.”

He said that a part of him regrets helping with the development of AI and that it could one day replace people in the workforce and help disseminate misinformation.  Hinton told the New York Times, “I console myself with the normal excuse: If I hadn’t done it, somebody else would have.”

New York Times reports:

Until last year, he said, Google acted as a “proper steward” for the technology, careful not to release something that might cause harm. But now that Microsoft has augmented its Bing search engine with a chatbot — challenging Google’s core business — Google is racing to deploy the same kind of technology. The tech giants are locked in a competition that might be impossible to stop, Dr. Hinton said.

His immediate concern is that the internet will be flooded with false photos, videos and text, and the average person will “not be able to know what is true anymore.”

It’s already here.  And it’s worse than just “false photos, videos and texts.”

In February, a well-known Twitch streamer that goes by the gamer tag “Atrioc” was caught with an open tab for a deepfake porn of a fellow female gamer, QTCinderella.  The mortified female gamer tweeted out the next day:

“The amount of body dysmorphia I’ve experienced since seeing those photos has ruined me.  It’s not as simple as ‘just’ being violated. It’s so much more than that.”

Last month, The Gateway Pundit reported on an open petition signed by several tech moguls calling for at least the temporary suspension of AI development “only once we are confident that their effects will be positive and their risks will be manageable.”  This petition included Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak, and the CEO of Stability AI among thousands of other tech leaders.

Bar Patrons Standing for National Anthem Sparks Outrage: ‘The Most Dangerous Situation’ THEY FELT THREATENED!

From breitbart.com

At Rainbow Oaks Restaurant — just an hour outside of San Diego — a TikTok user shared that she had faced the most “dangerous” situation she had ever been in. At noon, while she was eating her stack of pancakes, about a dozen people stood up for the Star-Spangled Banner being played on the bar’s TVs.

As first reported by Fox News, the TikTok user who goes by the screen name @Paulinaappa_0  recorded the patriotic display and included the caption: “By far the most dangerous situation I’ve ever been in #godblessamerica #getout #illegal #whitepeoplethings.”

The video racked up 3.1 million views and over 19,000 comments with the vast majority affirming Paulina’s feelings of fear and disgust.

For the past six years, the restaurant has played the National Anthem every day at noon, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page.

Patriotism has suffered a steep decline in the last couple of decades. A March 2023 survey conducted by the Wall Street Journal found that 38 percent of respondents said patriotism was “very important” to them. When this same question was asked in 1998, 70 percent of people said it was “very important,” the newspaper reported.

This phobia towards the National Anthem or the American flag is not a new phenomenon. Two years ago, the New York Post reported that a California school teacher, Kristin Pitzen, removed the American flag from her classroom and put the LGBTQ pride flag in its place. Echoing the same cry of Paulina and her thousands of commenters, Pitzen said the American flag made her feel “uncomfortable.”

As for Hollywood actor and evangelist Kirk Cameron, neither the American flag nor the National Anthem strike fear into his eyes but rather hope in his heart. A viral video from February, shows Cameron leading a room full of children and parents in the National Anthem at a public library in Savannah, Georgia, in February. Cameron is on a 14-city book tour to combat the “wokeness” being pushed on children.

“We don’t want this woke garbage,” Cameron said in an interview with the Daily Signal. “It leads to brokenness and bondage and leads to misery. What we want is what our country was built on, which was the Bible and faith and family and love for country.”

Brainwashed or just plain crazy!! That’s all I can think of. WHO in their right mind would feel threatened by people standing for the National Anthem??

Lord help these people!!


DIED SUDDENLY: US Olympic Gold Medalist Has Died at the Age of 32

“No cause of death given”

Tori Bowie, the sprinter who won three Olympic medals at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, has died. She was 32.

Bowie’s death was announced Wednesday by her management company and USA Track and Field.

No cause of death was given.

Her agent, Kimberly Holland, told CNN that Bowie was found dead at home in Florida.

“We’re devasted to share the very sad news that Tori Bowie has passed away. We’ve lost a client, dear friend, daughter and sister,” Icon Management said on Twitter. “Tori was a champion … a beacon of light that shined so bright!

“We’re truly heartbroken and our prayers are with the family and friends.”

“USATF is deeply saddened by the passing of Tori Bowie, a three-time Olympic medalist and two-time world champion,” USA Track and Field said. “A talented athlete, her impact on the sport is immeasurable, and she will be greatly missed.”

In a news release, the group said she was “[o]ne of the most exciting athletes to come out of the state of Mississippi.”

Growing up in Sandhill, a few miles northeast of Jackson, Bowie was coaxed into track as a teenager and quickly rose up the ranks as a sprinter and long jumper.

She attended Southern Mississippi, where she swept the long jump NCAA championships at the indoor and outdoor events in 2011.

Bowie turned in an electric performance at the 2016 Rio Olympics, where she won silver in the 100 and bronze in the 200. She then ran the anchor leg on a 4×100 team with Tianna Bartoletta, Allyson Felix and English Gardner to take gold.

A year later, she won the 100 meters at the 2017 world championships in London. She also helped the 4×100 team to gold.

Bowie was taken in by her grandmother as an infant after she was left at a foster home.

She considered herself a basketball player and only reluctantly showed up for track, but Bowie was a fast learner, becoming a state champion in the 100, 200 and long jump before going to college.

Her first major international medal was a 100-meter bronze at the worlds in 2015. After winning, she said, “my entire life my grandmother told me I could do whatever I set my mind to.”

“Off the track, Bowie was a professional fashion model and walked the runway at Paris Fashion Week in 2019 for Y-3, a collaboration label between her athletic sponsor, adidas, and Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto,” USA Track and Field said.

“She also featured in Valentino’s 2018 Resort campaign and did work with Stella McCartney.”

I should end this post with “Pfizer was contacted for a statement but has not responded.”

But that would be presumptuous.

Or would it?
