The Path Not Yet Foresaken

A project log for Using A.I. to create a Hollywood Script.

Use of an inexpensive microcontroller as a creative adjunct, by incorporating principles of an AI. Be VERY AFRAID!

While keeping up on some of the news, I find myself thinking that technically, I think that Hack-a-day bills itself as a "hardware site" even though 99% of the stuff here is either Raspberry Pi, or Ardudio-based, and very few people are actually doing actual hardware stuff like "making a windmill with an automobile alternator", or "building a kit airplane with an engine that was resduced from an old VW Beetle", and where this sort of thing used to be common in Popular Mechanics back in the '70s. 

Hence, right now I am focusing on the interactive AI part of robotics control, etc., with an idea toward ideally being multi-platform, or perhaps - who knows, if Elon's robots ever start shipping, now that would be a fun platform to try to jail-break; depending on how things work out with SAG-AFTRA-WGA and all of that is going on elsewhere like OpenAI being hit with a class action on behalf of the authors of over 100,000 books. Thus, this gets me thinking about whether there will ever be any opportunity for third-party content creators to monetize their work.

Yet, before this post starts to sound like some "manifesto", maybe I should talk about some other concepts that might be worth exploration, going forward.  As I have shown in some earlier posts, one way that a neuronal network can function is by creating an attentional system that is trained on sentence fragments like "down the rabbit hole", "best ever rabbit stew", or whatever, but then what happens?  It is possible to compute a SHA-256 hash of each paragraph in a document and then train an LMM based on "what-links-to-what" on a large scale, and then just simply delete the original training set, but still just somehow be able to drive whatever is left of the network with a prompt and still get the same output?

If so, then it might be possible for a content creator to create the equivalent of an "encrypted-binary" version of an executable, that can be protected from most casual interlopers as if the AI training process is sort of like a "lossy-compression algorithm" where one turn a document into a database of dictionary pointers; but then throw away the dictionary; and still have an AI that "works", at least in the sense of knowing how to roller-skate and chew gum at the same time, even if that is not recommended.

Even though "content protection" is an evil word around these parts, there is clearly going to be a problem, if 300,000,000 people are actually going to lose their jobs because of AI, and that could include most software developers, at least according to some.
