Sites, knowledge, and topics are taken over by a few, and the world suffers

Be careful to distinguish “true intelligent algorithms” that can be verified, from the many current hand written and human maintained “LLM shell” programs of groups wrapping LLM generated sentences. These are NOT true AIs by any means, and probably should not be called “AIs” at all. They are statistical sentence generators, and are severely limited

We do not need 8.1 Billion ways of writing down the sounds we make and encoding those in symbols.

We do not need 8.1 Billion ways of writing down the sounds we make and encoding those in symbols. Sounds for words, symbols for sounds, a chaos of spellings and fonts. LLM groups choosing arbitrary local tokenizations and not using a finite set of global open tokens – with the cooperation, involvement, agreement and benefit

A common voice for a heliospheric species means all humans can speak a universal language that tokenizes into a small set of global open acoustic elements

https://twitter.com/RichardKCollin2/status/1780689819531624523 It is NOT impossible. Can anyone help distill a common voice for a heliospheric Internet for 20 Billion humans and AIs? Audacity recordings of Google Translate voice of “girl boy tree sand sky house bird grass water wind” clipped to Paint to twitter(X). (@elonmusk)   One small set of tokens for ALL phonemes and

All “exact” models have to live in the real world, even Rapunzel had supplies and an early form of Internet

Physical Review Letters @PhysRevLett An exact full set of matrix product states of highly degenerate tricritical Lifshitz points in the quantum spin model with anisotropic interactions has been discovered https://go.aps.org/3Q3Pxna https://pic.twitter.com/w22Em2B3EZ Replying to @PhysRevLett It only looks simple because you use simple potentials with no real world inputs. In the real world, every tiny cubic

Moving Symbol sets, global open methods

Eric Brachmann @eric_brachmann Map-relative Pose Regression CVPR2024 highlight) For years absolute pose regression did not work. There was some success by massively synthesising scene-specific data. We train scene-agnostic APR and it works. Paper: https://arxiv.org/abs/2404.09884 Page: https://nianticlabs.github.io/marepo https://pic.twitter.com/uLNMFMQ42L Replying to @eric_brachmann There ought to be a concise moving symbol set to describe precisely this algorithm, not
