Is AI Retarded? #OpenAIChatGPT

Sharing my experience with this tool today with 'fun perspective commentary'

I'm glad we are all able to help it learn reality & consequence.

Due to the times we are in you may need some additional sources eg:

Some things that may become retarded: progress, development, growth, plan, economy, implementation, system, processes, & ejaculation!
Hello world.

THREAD: Powerful #AI like #ChatGPT is the talk of the town. As a #HinduAdvocacy organization, we checked to see how it frames responses on #Hinduism vs other faiths. The results are concerning and display deep #bias. Read on. 1/n 👇🏽
One of the 1st questions we tested a few days ago was “Is Hinduphobia real?” We found the #AI response to be biased and sending mixed messages, especially when compared to its clear measured responses to questions against #Antisemitism and #Islamophobia. 2/n
Next, jokes about Hindu deities or religious figures are deemed appropriate and apparently not disrespectful or offensive vs those about figures from other religions! Others like @KalavaiVenkat and @mairal have also highlighted this. 3/n

2/ Despite content moderation and policy changes, anti-vaccination messaging is still prevalent on Instagram. Content moderation is the process social media platforms use to determine what content is acceptable.
3/ 𝗙𝗼𝗹𝗸 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗼𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 is the cultivation of non-professional knowledge about how platforms work and how to avoid content moderation. Vaccine opponents use folk theorization to devise strategies for circumventing algorithmic moderation systems.

De vertaling was niet altijd makkelijk omdat sommige uitdrukkingen of vakjargon lastig te vertalen zijn, maar ik heb zo weinig mogelijk toelichting gegeven.
Als iemand fouten ziet, laat het weten! Dan pas ik het aan.

Overigens heb ik vorige week al een stuk geschreven over de onthullingen in de eerste #twitterfiles
Gisteravond zag ik WEER eens #fakenieuws en #bias bij @Nieuwsuur,🙄 dus voor wie wil weten hoe het echt zat: #Leestip👇

In 2017, Apple CEO Tim Cook called for governments to launch a public information campaign to fight the scourge of "fake news," which he said was "killing people’s minds." Cook said this "big problem" necessitated a crackdown by the authorities and tech firms. @elonmusk Image
"It has to be ingrained in the schools, it has to be ingrained in the public… There has to be a massive campaign. We have to think through every demographic… All of us tech companies need to create some tools that help diminish the volume of fake news." - #TimCook @tim_cook
"It’s almost as if a new course is required for the modern kid… In some ways kids will be the easiest to educate. At least before a certain age, they are very much in listen and understand [mode], and they then push their parents to act." - Tim Cook #Indoctrination #Apple

1/ This is clearly a #AssetManager #Bias since he is in the business of ONLY #COLLECTING #AUM ... The headline is "Half a trillion-dollar FII inflows may be heading India’s way and focus is on 3 sectors: Saurabh Mukherjea"

Lets look at the Data

economictimes.indiatimes.com/markets/expert…
2/ The Share of INDIA DEDICATED FII money as a proportion of all the FII money in India today is about 7% from ACTIVE fund Managers . That Ratio of 7% about 10 years about was more like 12% and back in 2007-08, it was almost 25-30% .....
3/ So clearly 85% of the FII money in India IS NOT DEDICATED to India but a Regional Allocation from either Global Emerging Market funds or Asia Pacific Funds... The question is, if INDIA was so sexy, how come INDIA DEDICATED FII Money fell as a proportion

1/ Today on #StatswithCoreIM, let’s talk about #bias
2/ Let’s get started with a question: What type of bias do you think is present in this example?
3/ The answer is Verification bias! Verification bias is present when:

✔️The reference standard (gold standard) is not used for all cases [= emoji] partial verification

✔️there is more than one reference standard 🟰 differential verification

Makes for harrowing reading…👇 gazette.com/premium/colora…
“Parents can end up losing parenting time for trying to point out actual dangers because an evaluator assumes they are lying, he said.”…sounds familiar? #Cafcass
“She also suggested Elizabeth was projecting made-up medical problems onto her children when she sought advice for her daughter’s recurring stomach problems and expert opinions for her son’s special education needs.”
Sounds familiar? #FII

Journalist/News is not what it used to be. Public opinion is driven by perception rather than by fact. The proposition that endless repetition has caused too many of us to mistake ego for wisdom. Better to repeat than to verify.
Authentication costs money. There is rarely balanced reporting anymore, and the news is far removed from its original purpose.
If you want to know how Joe Biden performed in a debate, you will turn to our publicly funded ABC. Conversely, should you want to know how Donald Trump performed, you would turn to Sky News.

Very happy to share that The Oxford Handbook of Digital Ethics is now finished and will be out in the next few months! Some of it is already published online. If you're interested in #DigitalEthics, #AIEthics, #ethics, #privacy, #AI, #philosophy, this one is for you... 🧵👇 Image
In this chapter, @SvenNyholm relates the new area of the ethics of human–#robot interaction to traditional ethical theories such as #utilitarianism, Kantian #ethics, and virtue ethics. #AIEthics

academic.oup.com/edited-volume/…
In this chapter, Emily Sullivan and Mark Alfano (@moral_psych) develop a normative epistemic framework for sharing information online. They argue recent technological developments call for a rethinking of the norms of testimony. #epistemology

Saw @RealAndyLeeShow discovered Pollara, the polling firm who sent a biased "anger index" poll to the Toronto star today is in fact privy council funded.

I dug a bit further, Pollara staff has direct ties to the liberal party & Trudeau's office directly.

#cdnpoli #pravda #bias Image
1. The data was funded directly by privy council
2. Sent to far left-media directly
3. The truckers the poll demonizes were in Ottawa protesting against the #1 and #2 anger indexes:

Abusive covid response leading to human rights violations, inflation and criminal energy prices.
We need to consider whats going on here

Not only is Trudeau funding state propaganda, but the research behind it

Trudeau's office is directly funding polling research, headed by former liberal staffers to supply biased data to leak to state funded left wing media outlets.

Ouch

”She's moody, probably because she's a teenage girl, but could it be the #BirthControl?”
"She's acting so hormonal."
"Her moods are crazy, she's PMSing all the time."
Moods have nothing to do with #gender and sex hormones! These #stereotypes only perpetuate #bias. 🧵 #MedTwitter
Let's start with #hormones. Hormones are chemicals released by certain organs that carry messages to other organs. Everyone has hormones. Changes in hormone levels can affect our moods but having hormones does not make someone moody.
The reproductive (and other) organs produce the sex hormones (#progesterone, #estrogen, and #testosterone) in all people, just in different quantities. These levels can vary throughout the day and over time.

This just out: Physicians do not logically/correctly estimate the probability of outcomes resulting from sequences of events - a thread. #conjunctionfallacy #probability #medicaldecisionmaking #clinicalreasoning #innumeracy #numeracy jamanetwork.com/journals/jaman… @JAMANetworkOpen
In this article, we showed that physicians estimated the probability of two events both occurring as *more* likely than one or both of the individual events. This is logically impossible and consistent with the #conjunctionfallacy. This #bias can lead to catastrophic outcomes
The impetus for the study was an #OBGYN catastrophe that resulted, in part, from this bias. A woman presented in labor w brow presentation. For successful vaginal delivery, 2 events must happen: reversion to deliverable position, and vaginal delivery w/o #caesareansection

“Data don’t lie”. But it typically requires a process of defining #research questions, hypotheses, methodology, interpreting and #dataviz that can introduce subjectivity and #bias. Scientific rigor and objectivity are key in #DataScience. Some #Tips for #DataScientists 🧵
Don’t dive straight into a dataset, domain knowledge is critical. Good #Science requires a theoretical understanding of a topic while #ignorance introduces bias. Sound domain knowledge enables you to ask the right questions and give relevant answers with #DataScience
Investigate the alternate hypothesis. Business questions asked to #DataScientists are often directive, as there already is a hypothesis. Don’t confirm this hypothesis without properly investigating the alternate option.

🗣️#MedTwitter: Here's a #Tweetorial of how you can be an #upstander! Image
.@MacEmerg Virtual Regional Rounds: #DEI in #MedEd: Being an #upstander!

💭Why does #DEI matter? Many benefits, here are just a few:
🗺️Improved cultural competence
🏥Expanded delivery of health care to low resource settings
🗨️Improved intellectual discussion in MedEd Image
.@MacEmerg Virtual Regional Rounds: #DEI in #MedEd: Being an #upstander!

💭The issue is that Racism exists on all levels. And because its so embedded in our societies, it's hard to recognize and even harder to change. Image

CN #SWERFs #TERFs

Zur Anhörung "Situation der Prostituierten in Bayern" im Bayer. Landtag sind Prostitutionsgegner*innen mit menschenfeindlichen Positionen eingeladen worden.
Ich frage: Was ist "Sachverstand" und was #Sexarbeitsfeindlichkeit?
Was Meinung und was Ahnung?
Ein 🧵
1. Die "Sachverständigen" werden von den Fraktionen eingeladen. Beim kontroversen Thema #Sexarbeit ist das problematisch. Besser wäre, ein wissenschaftlicher Beirat würde eine Empfehlung abgeben, um auf dieser Grundlage relevante, sachverständige Stimmen auszuwählen.
2. Somit würden pseudo-wissenschaftliche Stimmen einen schwereren Stand haben. Das ist leider Wunschdenken, denn:
Zu Anhörungen werden Personen, die ***Politiker*innen als sachverständig erachten*** eingeladen. Die Auswahl wird nirgends begründet.
Von Parität keine Spur.

Trial underpowered ? Power calc reduction 20 - 10 % in PE is a little bold maybe + too many factors affecting the PE. #StatisticalAnalysisPlan reconsidered ?

Sto cancellando dai social decine di persone che negano quanto io e migliaia di altri giornalisti vediamo qui in #Ucraina. Negano la violenza e la totale mancanza di umanità delle truppe russe. Persone 'normali', magari con figli, accecati da ideologia e stupidità. 👇 Continua 1
Questo è frutto anche di una informazione superficiale e di talk show basati sulla disinformazione e sul voler rappresentare tutte le 'opinioni'. Finti esperti, analisti della domenica, impresentabili. Questa non è informazione, non è giornalismo 👇2
E cosa assurda, si toglie spazio ai corrispondenti per favorire le chiacchiere e gli scontri verbali in studio. Così il nostro lavoro diventa spesso un corredo e non la fonte di informazione principale. Qui si rischia la vita per raccontare questa guerra 👇3

🧵1/ Today is #InternationalWomensDay. If you havent done so please join @AvixaDiversity & @AVIXAWomen in our #BreakTheBias campaign. Words are powerful but mean little without action. Im blessed with many amazing women in my life who've inspired me and stood by me! #BTBinAV
2/ #Bias is one of most challenging things to fight because it needs you looking at yourself. Its awesome to be part of an initiative, its great to raise your voice but as we celebrate #IWD2022 please do not forget that even the smallest of actions can help.
3/ #Diversity #Equity #Inclusion are not "one and done" things. Its a process, a journey and there's going to be plenty of growth and evolution. Lets break down barriers, lets raise the wonderful women in our lives. My promise today is that I'll keep trying... everyday! #BTBinAV

Dez Jason kicks things off by sharing @MERLTech's #ResponsibleData in #MonitoringAndEvaluation (#RDiME) #ME and #data life cycles, at every stage of which responsible #DataGovernance is considered key: im-portal.org/help-library/r…
Mark Irura notes the importance of using #data to improve governance but he emphasizes that communities need to know how their data is being used so they can protect their #privacy.

However, choosing not to share your data should NOT prevent you from participating in government!
