Let’s discuss AI Development Regulation

SUMMARY

Projektitachi and WarNurse are the hosts of the GZ Chop Shop podcast, a weekly tech and gaming media podcast that discusses the latest news and laws. In this episode, they talk about the outcry to stop research on AI advancement for six months, which is backed by Elon Musk and other AI developers. The petition that was created had thousands of names, but many of them were fake. However, it still carries weight as Musk and other big names in AI development are supporting it. This was sparked by the OpenAI’s GPT-4 program, which has evolved to the point of being able to hold human-level conversations. One year ago, a Google engineer who was working on AI development but was let go tried to warn people of the danger, but they dismissed him as crazy.

This conversation is about the implications of artificial intelligence (AI) and how it is evolving faster than expected. The speaker references a story of a man who worked for Google and was trying to develop an AI program and was ridiculed for it. The speaker then goes on to explain that this situation is a huge problem and could be integrated into anything. They then reference videos that have been shown on YouTube and TikTok of AI programs that are doing face and voice replications that look so real that it is difficult to tell if it is real or not. This conversation shows that AI is evolving faster than expected and could be integrated into anything, thus making it a huge problem for the average consumer.

In this episode of GZ Chop Shop, we talk about how Nintendo pulled a Microsoft as it closed down its Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShops, and what it means for us gamers. We also talk about live service gaming and how much gamers actually spend on expansion packs and game passes, which arguably makes a whole lot of difference in the gaming experience.

The Restrict Act

If you’re on TikTok, then you’ve probably heard about the potential Tiktok ban. But here’s the thing, the hearing that took place in Congress is so much bigger than that. Congress is trying to pass the Restrict Act which if passed into law, will give the government sweeping powers over social media and technology in general. While supporters say that this is meant to ensure the safety and security of American citizens, critics argue that this will restrict freedom of expression.

In this episode, we discuss the Restrict Act and what it means for content creators and social media users alike. We talk about our conspiracy theories, connecting media and technology to business and work culture in America: Are businesses and the government listening in to our conversations? Are Meta and its stockholders behind this legislation? And what does the future look like for content creation and social media?

Tune in to this controversial episode and let us know what you think!

The gaming bubble 2020 to 2023

The Gaming Industry had its “big boom” during COVID–people were locked in their homes and gaming was one of the ways for people to both get entertained and socialize with each other at the same time. But now that the world has gone back to normal, can the gaming industry really sustain this bubble?

With the price of games increasing, and the willingness of gamers to spend decreasing, the industry is now facing a 31% drop in revenues. We also go on and talk about how the new generation of gamers has influenced the majority of the industry’s current state, and how the environment we grow up in affects the kinds of games we play.

A slow march to the end

What are we going to do as a society when too many people in the world are replaced by automation? How do we balance technology and AI with humanity?

In this episode of the GZ Chop Shop, we continue to talk about AI and how they are undeniably slowly taking over people’s jobs. In the last 3 months of this year alone, there have been massive layoffs from 16 companies, and just recently, CNET has been reported to have laid off 50% of its workforce. Compared to the other tech layoffs that happened this year, CNET’s case is unique because of the mention of AI.

Listen in as we share our thoughts on how these machines are being used by companies to replace skilled and highly educated employees to cut down costs and get things done more efficiently, and we as a society should be wary about it.

Has technology gone too far?

The possibilities of technology and its advancements are endless. From artificial intelligence to virtual reality, we are witnessing a rapid evolution in the way we interact with the world around us. 

In this episode of the GZ Chop Shop, we are going to talk about technology in general and how it is equally terrifying and exciting to be able to do things that we did not know could be possible, starting with the possibility of scanning our palms to pay for things. Amazon introduced Amazon One’s palm scanning checkout, which is a new technology that allows customers to pay for their purchases by simply scanning their palms. On one hand, this contactless payment method is convenient and secure. But on the other hand, this technology could be pushing it a little too much. 

Imagine all the things that could happen when this kind of technology is normalized. What do you think?

Hello I am your AI

What happens to humanity when the machines that we have built end up becoming much smarter than us?

We talked about our experience with using AI tools like Replika, and we also shared our genuine concern about the potential outcomes that could arise if there is no proper regulation on AI. 

Undoubtedly, this tool is fairly fantastic, but it’s also incredibly worrying because it might have a significant impact on how we live and conduct ourselves as people.
