Digital Molecular Assemblers: What synthetic media/generative AI actually represents, and where I think it’s going

Posted by in categories: biological, internet, robotics/AI, transhumanism

Yuli Ban is talking about the prediction and emergence of generative AIs, the extent to which those can disrupt humanities reliance on creativity and productivity. He mentions ‘the dead internet theory’ that postulates that most content is autogenerated, obfuscating the actual people using the internet and reducing their actual exposure.

I think we already see this in social media, internet forums and other areas where fake content and profiles are detected. and this can spread to youtube and short form video platforms, telemarketing and scams. as well as use by political groups and states.

Yuli also mentions the long term implications — peaking human population and the notion of Transhumanism where humans merge with an infinitely more capable AI which assumes control. he mentions how biology is a quality many would like to preserve, to varying degrees.

OpenAI debuts Whisper API for speech-to-text transcription and translation

Posted by in categories: internet, robotics/AI

To coincide with the rollout of the ChatGPT API, OpenAI today launched the Whisper API, a hosted version of the open source Whisper speech-to-text model that the company released in September.

Priced at $0.006 per minute, Whisper is an automatic speech recognition system that OpenAI claims enables “robust” transcription in multiple languages as well as translation from those languages into English. It takes files in a variety of formats, including M4A, MP3, MP4, MPEG, MPGA, WAV and WEBM.

Countless organizations have developed highly capable speech recognition systems, which sit at the core of software and services from tech giants like Google, Amazon and Meta. But what makes Whisper different is that it was trained on 680,000 hours of multilingual and “multitask” data collected from the web, according to OpenAI president and chairman Greg Brockman, which lead to improved recognition of unique accents, background noise and technical jargon.

Meta works on a flurry of AR/VR devices over the next 3 to 4 years

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, internet, neuroscience, virtual reality

Meta’s AR glasses could be launched in 2027.

Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta Platforms is doubling down on its virtual reality (VR) products and plans to rope in augmented reality (AR) experiences. It looks to define its position in the technology industry a few years from now. Thousands of employees of the Reality Labs Division at Meta were recently presented with a roadmap for the company’s products, which was then shared with The Verge.

VR, AR, and neural interfacesAlthough Zuckerberg has spoken mainly of the metaverse that the company would build as the future of the internet, Meta now seems to have taken its foot off the pedal to make the metaverse itself and focus on the tools instead and improving them.

SpaceX launches batch of 21 new “V2 mini” Starlink satellites to orbit

Posted by in categories: internet, satellites

The new Starlink satellites are a precursor for larger models that will eventually launch aboard Starship.

SpaceX lifted the first batch of its new Starlink “V2 mini” satellites to orbit on Monday, February 27. The private space firm launched 21 of the new generation satellites aboard a Falcon 9 rocket that also came down to perform the 100th successful booster landing in a row for the company.

The Starlink mission took to the skies at 6:13 pm EST (2313 GMT) from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. The launch was delayed roughly five hours before liftoff due to “a space weather concern,” SpaceX explained on Twitter.
