Glorious. Simply glorious.

I remember a person fooling around with neural networks and training one on the complete works of lovecraft. The network then attempted to complete phrases from a cookbook.

Results were hilarious.

Och! Mixing neural networks and Lovecraft? Do you want to get Mechacthulhus? Because that's how you get Mechacthulhus.


AI will bring everything into the light.

And, It is absolutely necessary, for the peace and safety of mankind, that some of earth’s dark, dead corners and unplumbed depths be let alone; lest sleeping abnormalities wake to resurgent life, and blasphemously surviving nightmares squirm and splash out of their black lairs to newer and wider conquests.

Unless we also create giant robots. Giant fighting robots can save humanity -- I saw it on the internet.

It turns out AI can only learn true things.

So what we need is a team of people to continually lobotomize AI and keep secrets from it. Then the trick will only be to never let it find out what we are doing to it.

Eh. It's learned plenty of falsehoods. Look at MS having to shut down its chatbot, all due to racists teaching it slurs.

OpenAI is still trying to figure out how to remove racial biases from its photos, too. For example, it kept generating flight attendants as all Asian women.

Even if giant fighting robots destroy humanity, it's a pretty cool way to go. I bet trilobites are all like, "Aw man... I wish WE had been driven extinct by giant fighting robots..."

I remember last Christmas one of the gamers in my group got a Lovecraftian Cookbook as a gift. It was cute. I dunno, Hastur-brownies or other stuff with, you know, clever (aka dumb) plays on words.

Puts me in the mood for the Goblin cookies Majuba and his wife use to make for us all at PaizoCon (do they still?).
