LLMs are PerfectSat 02 December 2023 by R.L. Dane
LLMs (Large Language Models, colloquially referred to as "A.I.") are perfect...
Perfect exemplars and the very embodiment of the brain-rot of our society.
Much like so many loud voices in society today, the LLM is incapable of discerning reliable from unreliable sources, identifying the origin and validity of a source, or exercising even the feeblest form of epistemic justification.
Like so many today, LLMs spew whatever is stored in their fetid memory banks with absolute confidence and zero competence.
The LLM is the apotheosis of the Dunning-Kruger Effect.
It is with great regret that I must concede that the transhumanists were right after all, although only in a very specific domain:
We cannot (and likely will never) be able to upload an actual human soul into a computer, but we now have the essence of your idiotic racist uncle in algorithmic form.
Bravo, gentlemen. Bravo.
