I asked an AI for video ideas for other YouTubers. It went badly.

    Thanks so much to everyone who got on a call with me! Unfortunately, I can't take requests for other channels, but I'm sure someone'll turn this idea into a web toy at some point.

    Who said AI recognising images and faces was just training a model. To me, it still is close to magic. I mean, recognising images and especially faces is, everything our eyes do for us! And AI does that, in some cases, better than humans! Especially Google Photos AI, I will never dismiss that as just a normal thing.

    I feel like AIs do what our brains do in our dreams... Like, you dream of this amazing melody, or this amazing pitch for a TV show, or this amazing painting, or this amazing title, or this amazing solution for your coding problem, etc... But when you wake up, you actually think about it and turns out to be sheer nonsense... AIs tend to do this wild association of elements without the reasoning behind them... That's why they can do it so fast, and why 99% of it is something with a solid structure, but with no real application behind.

    Hi Tom Scott! If you are reading this I thought of a video idea for you the other day. I wasn't really sure how to word this, but you could do a video on the effects when people speak a second language for many years. For example, if they moved to another country and spoke the language of that country for a long time, they sometimes start to think in the second language rather than their active language. Additionally, sometimes people revert to their native language under stress. I feel like there could be some interesting information on that.

    In a nutshell machine learning is only as Advanced as a paramecium colony the strongest and most fittest survive in the rest die. For too long we have a plied Moore’s law to machine coding and learning. The problem is Moore’s law is not a law. It’s a goal, the goal is to double the computing output every two years. This video is a case in point of how machine learning only produces an outcome of causing affect from environmental stimuli. In this case the environment is the input and the titles of potential videos is the proper liberation of viable paramecium.

    It seems that the artificial intelligent software is missing human psychology. It doesn’t understand Clickbait is trying to deliver the most relevant information or title possible. Asking it to translate things into our psychology is like us trying to translate our psychology into it. We can give a parameters make it act you do things within a relative margin but all that’s going to do is just change the verbiage. It will still not understand psychology of humans
