    Downvotes I Want To Understand

    I just want to say that, for some reason, there's been a lot of downvotes on articles, and no comments. Why is this? What is bothering people about the Operations Log? I can help people who criticize a post, but not people who simply downvote it. Everyone opposed to image theft is allowed here, and your opinion will be listened to. Please say something instead of just downvoting. Upvotes without comments are a similar problem, but I want to fix things that are wrong.

    And if you're downvoting this because it shows up in your feed and you don't want it, just say so. I have a hunch that it's Boosters fueling their agenda, or Doomers having nihilistic fun, but you can't trust hunches.

    Bro what the fuck happened to Reddit?

    I was trying to browse the site, and I think it might be faced with a few problems.

    AI In Terms Of Marxism - Discussion
  • Note 1: I'm unsure if "commissioner" would be an appropriate term, since some commissioners support artists and are artists themselves, some are looking for thumbnails for their videos, some are horny, and then some want your work for free and throw temper tantrums -- the last type usually ends up being a Booster.

  • AI In Terms Of Marxism - Discussion

    So I've talked in an Operations Log about defining AI, and I'm glad we're getting close to defining what the "AI" in "Fuck AI" is more specifically, because I see that, in programs like MdJ, StD, and ChatGPT, there is an element of class warfare in it. I really want tech workers to pile in here, because the entire success of these programs -- those in which a prompt is written, and an uncannily detailed image is made, or a long yet coherent passage is typed -- is built entirely on the efforts of workers. The reason I want to delineate AI from other things is because programs like the A-star algorithm, autocorrect, 3D modeling programs, and Vocaloids do not require an absurd amount of data to operate.

    This article here most certainly explains why everything works so smoothly, as does this, and there is a book called Ghost Work that I'm going to read after my current one which illuminates a massive, hidden proletariat beneath the Silicon Valley bourgoise. If you are an artist whose work has been scraped, you can probably add to this testimony.

    I had a hunch about AI being not as mighty as it seemed, and altho it's not wise to trust hunches, those articles, along with ones I sent to this community daily, prove thus: No technological capability of AI can exist without the labor-value of countless workers, whether taken from previous commodities (scraped images and text), or taken from workers continually (the business investigated by Dzeiza).

    If you are an illlustrator, photographer, author, or other artist whose work was scraped, or someone else whose field is going to be "replaced with AI", this means you! Yes, you are the proletariat! Just like how a factory worker is only paid by how little the robber baron can get away with, so too are you only paid by how little a tech-bro can get away with.n1 And when there's a machine that a tech-bro can use to pay you nothing at all for your work, they will gladly use that machine.

    I know that Marxism may be misappropriated by regions across the world, or that there are Tankies who champion Marxism but do not advance worker's rights. Well, if a Booster claims to be a Marxist, I will not believe them. AI has allowed people to pluck the labor-power from the proletariat as easily as one would click a mouse. I'm certain that Marxism is an ideal way to discuss why AI can and should be opposed.

    He gets us!

  • Some changes, and Boosters vs Doomers

    I want to apologize for changing the description without telling people first. After reading arguments about how AI has been so overhyped, I'm not that frightened by it. It's awful that it hallucinates, and that it just spews garbage onto YouTube and Facebook, but it won't completely upend society. I'll have articles abound on AI hype, because they're quite funny, and gives me a sense of ease knowing that, despite blatant lies being easy to tell, it's way harder to fake actual evidence.

    I also want to factor in people who think that there's nothing anyone can do. I've come to realize that there might not be a way to attack OpenAI, MidJourney, or Stable Diffusion. These people, which I will call Doomers from an AIHWOS article, are perfectly welcome here. You can certainly come along and read the AI Hype Wall Of Shame, or the diminishing returns of Deep Learning. Maybe one can even become a Mod!

    Boosters, or people who heavily use AI and see it as a source of good, ARE NOT ALLOWED HERE! I've seen Boosters dox, threaten, and harass artists over on Reddit and Twitter, and they constantly champion artists losing their jobs. They go against the very purpose of this community. If I hear a comment on here saying that AI is "making things good" or cheering on putting anyone out of a job, and the commenter does not retract their statement, said commenter will be permanently banned. FA&FO.

  • Opinion Piece On AI that I Agree With
  • What sort of life are you living where you still need more content, more so that the rate it's produced? People from all across the globe are making art using all sorts of tools, there are video games being made all the time, and all LLMs are doing right now is regurgitating the same garbage. Why is this development so important? This isn't taking a break from work, this isn't solving climate change, this isn't self-care or innovating in healthcare!

    Automation is supposed to take time away from physically maufacturing goods so people can take time off to make art; why, then, when the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals are still out of reach, are you people trying to automate art?

  • Operations Log: Wants, Needs, And So On
  • Forgot to say: by "some people think it's going to completely upend society", I mean that people like GardenVarietyAnxiety think AI is pretty much unstoppable.

  • Operations Log: Wants, Needs, And So On
  • Yeah, I looked at A* and it is not a bad thing at all! In fact, it looks really cool. Brings me back to when I was learning Python (I haven't completely learned it, tho, and it was a long time ago).

    I think that making fun of AI would certainly be done through separate tags of posts (I don't know if those are here yet, and even if they are, I'm newer to Lemmy than a lot of other people). I suppose that making fun of AI could happen, but I don't know if the people in the community would want it. I'll certainly compile the evidence on why AI is dangerous, but I suppose insults could bring a more jovial feeling to this place.

    I don't know if polls are a feature on Lemmy yet, either. I'll see if it's there. A megathread would be a great idea. Memes would be fun too, methinks.

    It's just that I want to help independent artists who are threatened by AI by showing how bad it is, and how it's plagarism.

Why, this Will lug your priests and servants from your sides; Pluck stout men’s pillows from below their heads; This yellow slave Will knit and break religions; bless the accurs’d; Make the hoar leprosy ador’d; place thieves, And give them title, knee and approbation, With senators on the bench; this is it, That makes the wappen’d widow wed again: ...
