Tim Cook is “not 100 percent” sure Apple can stop AI hallucinations
  • What weirds me out is that the things it has issues with when generating images/video are basically a list of things lucid dreamers check on to see if they're awake or dreaming.

    1. Hands. Are your hands... Hands? Do they make sense?

    2. Written language. Does it look like normal written language?

    (3. Turn the lights off/4. Pinch your nose and breath through it) - these two not so much

    1. How did I get here? Where was I before this? Does the transition make sense?

    2. Mirrors. Are they accurate?

    3. Displays on digital devices. Do they look normal?

    4. Clocks. Digital and analog... Do they look like they're telling time? Even if they do, look away and check again.

    (9. Physics, try to do something physically impossible, like poking your finger through your palm. 10. Do you recognize people/do they recognize you) - on two more that aren't relevant.

    But still... It's kinda remarkable.

    Also, Nvidia launched their earth 2 earth simulator recently. So, simulation theory confirmed, I guess.

  • Singer sues hospital, says staff thought he was mentally ill and wasn't member of Four Tops
  • The thing about suing for damages, which is what I assume hell sue for, is that your payout is based on their value. And hospitals are "worth nothing" on paper. In the US.

    So... He should probably take it.

    I mean I'm kidding, he can probably afford a good lawyer and get something done here. But, you or me? Take that shit.

  • do you think that a third world war will take place?
  • I didnt downvote ya there.

    That was a quick Google result it might not be in that article. I just chose it because AP. There's dozens of articles about conversations between Xi and Biden.

    The discourse is generally "By 2025" "in 2027" and "before 2030". Given the discourse and tension in the South China Sea, it looks very much like a "By 2025" situation. Just my bet. Ties into computational supremacy, embargos, TSMC, Taiwan reunification, and more.

  • If you didn't have to work, how would you spend your time?
  • I already know, the pandemic showed me.

    Id hike nearly every day. Id play music nearly every day. Id get a dog. Id take up gardening and cooking.

    Id continue to study cybersecurity, Id continue to build out my home network.

    If I had the funds, I'd continue to build a recording studio, and get a proper server rack.

    Legend has it, Eyedea wrote these lyrics when he was 14 years old. What the actual fuck.


    midnight club: the unsung hero of arcade racing.

    This is an appreciation thread. All 4 games are iconic to me. Way underrated.

    To me, midnight club is everything need for speed wanted to be. Need for speed had a few hits and many misses. Midnight club was 100% hits. And they aged incredibly. They're still fun as hell.

    If you never played and you dig arcade racing games, go play. It's an open city racing game. Variety of racing types, endless challenges, and really great mechanicsi just wish it was as.pophlar as it deserves to be.


    Worse and worse

    Anyone else getting worse and worse service with chat gpt?

    I am getting repetitive incorrect and lazy answers and then rate limited. Idk what I'm even paying for at this point. It's happened the last 5 times I've used it over the last week or so.

    Am I alone?


    screen blackout, app still functions.

    Im on a galaxy s22+. This started happening the same time the upvotes downvote buttons started to glitch in the UI which I have also posted about.

    This issue is more annoying. When I am mid response, I'll often leave the app to get more accurate info in what I'm trying to say. When I come back to Lemmy, it's all black. Nothing. But my button presses are still registering.

    If I go to the app switcher (bottom left android button) thing, and reselect Lemmy, it fixes and the display returns.

    But if I react by pressing the back button, I lose my response, I lose the post I was responding to, I sometimes can't even relocate the thread I was in easily.


    voting buttons bug

    I need to hit the upvotes and downvote buttons twice on the main page.

    It will flash it's color as I press on press 1, but then quickly revert. On second press, it behaves normally.


    Tom Brier sight reads Super Mario World Ending Theme - incredible ragtime improv

    This guy was something special. Not too many prodigies can improv like Tom Brier. Someone posted Nyan cat the other day and it reminded me of the incredible body of his work.

    This guys relative made this YouTube channel when he realized Tom could play anything and turn it into a full length song ad libertum, AND that he was incredibly out of touch with pop culture. Most of the time he is completely unfamiliar with the song being presented to him. You can tell how much he enjoyed this song by his enthusiastic laugh at the end 😊

    Guy sadly was in a bad car accident in 2016, and can no longer play. These videos just make me cry now, but God damn does this mean deserve keep being found and revered.


    feature request: custom feeds

    Right now there are three feeds available to me, that, as far as I can tell, I have minimal control over.

    It'd be rad if there was a way to add feeds, and for each feed, be able to manually select communities I'd like to see.

    This would be great for news, porn, sports, pornography, adult content, and so much more.


    Your Personal Metal Deep Cuts

    Last week we had a great thread about metal without growls. In reading suggestions, and conjuring up some of my own, I re-realized a bunch of stuff.

    I wanna see your top 3 metal deep cuts.

    What do I mean by deep cut? I mean the formative shit. The stuff you found and loved along the way but lost track of, that when you revisit you go "fuck what happened to these guys?" The ones that helped guide you but fell off the face of the earth (or just your radar).


    Guess The Episode [Genius At Work]

    I like this one because like 9 episodes come to mind.


    Guess The Episode [genius at work]

    If y'all get this, this category is going to become silly. That's a threat.


    Guess The Episode [genius at work]

    I'm hoping for the 'genius at work' designation to represent the most difficult, but solvable, stills.

    I think by guahing where y'all have been at, this might stump you, but there is enough info. Prove me wrong and the category gets forever more difficult!


    Guess The Episode [medium]

    This is bordering on 'hard' I think? This seems about as difficult as medium should be. Or as easy as hard should be? 🤔


    guess the episode meta

    Ive enjoyed this little game and would like to keep it going.

    May I suggest a naming convention? We've been adding what round were doing at the end. Let's stop that.

    Instead, I propose we formalize it a little to help it gain momentum. That sounds stupid as I type it but... Hear me out. I'm not saying like scoreboards and stuff. Just difficulty ratings?

    Post title: Guess The Episode - [easy/medium/hard/Genius At Work]

    Idk, let's talk about if we want more of this game, and if we want to widen it's appeal


    Blocking behavior

    Right now if I block a user, it can disconnect my user within the app from portions of my user presence.

    i.e. if I respond to a user in good faith, they respond in bad faith, I block them, and I want to revisit my good faith response in context, I am unable to do so via my profile. If the person I block is the top level comment, I am unable to view any content created within that comment tree because the top level comment is blocked.

    I bring this up as defederates from hexbear, and it has felt like there might be some brigading going on in relation to that.

    This might be intentional, or not. Just voicing an opinion that I wish blocking a user would just make all of that users posts show as [blocked] and their username show as [blocked], with an option to temporarily display the blocked content, but still be unable to interact without physically unblocking them. If the "block" was more cosmetic and less functional, it wouldn't disconnect existing functionality (like trying to view my own posts in context).
