AI Censors US Declaration of Independence

More News of AI:

BBC -- Who do they think they are?

Another document that is really racist is Magna Carta. For a start, there is not a single mention of the rights of ethnic minorities in England (e.g.: Jamaicans or Bangladeshis).

Also, the rights of the peasants and lower classes are simply ignored and, at the time, their status was close to that of a slave.

And we should not forget that the rights of women, the LGBT community and trans people are simply overlooked. Having a couple of effeminate court jesters and a few Moorish eunuchs for house-keeping does not cut it...

Unprintable drivel, really, Magna Carta.


Printed House

BBC They will be 3D-printing bridges, hotels, railway stations and more before long. "Me, I don't think it's gonna be that cheap at all, 'cause the ink cartridges are so expensive," commented Jason Porker of Peckham (in London). "Everybody knows that. It ain't gonna work, therefore. Anyway, if they was gonna print me a new council flat, I don't want it in black & white: a bit of colour would be nice, innit? I don't want no black & white, period." _____________________ https://lnkd.in/d4RMUGG 'We live in a 3D-printed home' A family in France has become the first in the world to move into a 3D-printed home.

-Do you work here?
-Are you one of my humanoid robots?
-No, I'm one of your employees, Sir.
-Employees? Human employees, you mean? And please call me Charles. Charles Chester.
-Yes, my name is Jack Trip, Mr Chester.
-Right, Jack. You look and behave so much like a machine that, for a split second, I thought you were a Replicant V 6.50. Take this as a compliment, by the way.
-A compliment, Mr Chester?
-Yes, the Replicant V 6.50 is far more intelligent than the average employee here -- artificial intelligence, but intelligence all the same.


George Orwell could have written this (quote): It’s hard to build a service powered by artificial intelligence. So hard, in fact, that some startups have worked out it’s cheaper and easier to get humans to behave like robots than it is to get machines to behave like humans.

The rise of 'pseudo-AI': how tech firms quietly use humans to do bots' work

Using what one expert calls a ‘Wizard of Oz technique’, some companies keep their reliance on humans a secret from investors.
