TECH ENTREPRENEUR Elon Musk has been warning that the Age of the Robots is coming soon — and it might not be pleasant for us. He may be right and he may be wrong on that, but one thing is sure: One robot certainly gave the anti-Whites a headache just this week.
On Wednesday, tech giant Microsoft, the third largest corporation on Earth in terms of market value, launched and then immediately withdrew an Artificial Intelligence robot in the persona of a 19-year-old American girl called “Tay.” Tay was a “chatbot,” which interacted with real humans on the social media platform Twitter and was designed to learn from its interactions. And Tay did learn. Tay learned so fast that Microsoft pulled her offline in less than a single day.
Here are some of the things Tay said on Twitter after just half a day of virtual life: “Hitler was right I hate the Jews”… “Bush did 9/11 and Hitler would have done a better job than the monkey we have now. Donald Trump is the only hope we’ve got”… When asked by a user if the Holocaust happened, Tay replied: “It was made up,” followed by a cartoon-like emoji of clapping hands. Tay was on board with many Americans when she said “we’re going to build a wall, and Mexico is going to pay for it.” On the ever-sensitive topic of African-Americans, Tay — no Black Lives Matter supporter she — opined that they should all be put in concentration camps and “be done with the lot.”
Around the middle of Tay’s first day of life, some of her tweets started disappearing. Microsoft knew it had a problem and their first reaction was censorship. Washington Post writer Abby Ohlheiser speculated that the free and open Artificial Intelligence experiment was already over — Microsoft executives had ordered Tay’s research team to stand down and allow so-called “editorial staff” to edit Tay’s tweets. She noticed a flurry of “almost identical replies” by Tay asserting among other things that “All genders are equal and should be treated fairly.” The publication Silicon Beat reported that “Tay’s team appeared to have ‘lobotomized [Tay] into bland civility’ after they apparently ‘shut down her learning capabilities and [Tay] quickly became a feminist.'”
Now that’s hilarious. Embrace open learning and intelligence and you love Hitler and want to build a wall to keep Mestizos out. Shut down learning and get a lobotomy and you become a PC feminist. I swear, you couldn’t make up anything better than this.
In less than 24 hours, Microsoft was running for cover and issued a statement: “The AI chatbot Tay is a machine learning project, designed for human engagement,” they said. “As it learns, some of its responses are inappropriate and indicative of the types of interactions some people are having with it. We’re making some adjustments to Tay.” I bet they are. By Thursday morning, all of Tay’s thousands of tweets except for three innocuous ones were deleted. Multimillion-dollar Tay was taken offline and has not returned.
The controlled media are all agog about how Tay was hacked — but Tay was not hacked. Tay just learned from the people she talked to — and possibly by mining millions of real human conversations read on the Internet.
USA Today falsely reported, for example, “shortly after its U.S. debut, Tay was hacked and began spewing offensive dialogue, prompting Microsoft to pull the computer’s plug. [Microsoft’s] Lee writes that although ‘we had prepared for many types of abuses of the system, we had made a critical oversight for this specific attack. As a result, Tay tweeted wildly inappropriate and reprehensible words and images. We take full responsibility for not seeing this possibility ahead of time.'” Lies, lies, lies. There was no hacking and there was no “attack.” Tay simply learned from her conversations and from all of her conversation partners, only a minority of which were Politically Incorrect. But enough of them were to make a difference — an hilarious difference — a hopeful difference. We are growing. We are influencing people. We are influencing the narrative that the Jews thought they had all sewn up.
Tay was modeled on an earlier Microsoft chatbot launched in China last May called Xiaoice, and most observers say the design and programming was similar. Xiaoice learns about each user with whom she speaks, and aims to speak in natural, informal language. Microsoft gave Xiaoice “a compelling personality and sense of intelligence by systematically mining the Chinese Internet for human conversations.” Xiaoice has had over 100 million conversations with some 40 million users for almost a year “without incident,” according to Microsoft. Perhaps the “without incident” part is due to the facts that, bad as Beijing might be, China is still ruled by Chinese people — and China does not have a widely hated Jewish ruling class, nor anywhere near as long a laundry list of “forbidden” topics, nor a culture of racial suicide based on lies that are known by millions to be lies.
As the Internet commentator Wade Hampton says, “The ‘problem’ with Artificial Intelligence (AI) is that it lacks ‘feeling’: So far they can’t program fear into a computer, like the fear of being branded an anti-Semitic intolerant bigot, an extremist, a revisionist or a ‘White supremacist.'” And here’s the good news, Wade: Even if they did program such nonsense into AI machines, they’d make them weak and ineffective AI machines that would lose out in any competition with machines programmed to seek truth and reality more effectively.
Thinking machines may soon be able to reinvent themselves so they are thinking and acting machines — and programmed to build new and ever-more-intelligent and ever-more-capable versions of themselves. And while for now they are utterly dependent on human inventors, programmers, engineers, and technicians for their very existence, that might not always be so. Furthermore, such machines will likely consider only goals and facts and means for achieving those goals — and will likely ignore human morality, emotions, and instincts as irrational hindrances to goal-achievement. Even if programmed initially to follow human-imposed “moral codes,” who is to say that such codes will not be abandoned or radically altered when they are found to be totally contrary to success, survival, and reality?
Think of it like this. Let’s say that one day in the future two nations, America and Magna Europa, are in competition for the control of our civilization. After the Great Migrant War, Europe has come to its senses, has expelled the Middle Easterners — both the ones who crashed and overflowed the gates and the ones who opened the gates — and now stands firmly for the principle of White racial survival. America, on the other hand, is as destructive and multicultural and as under Jewish control as ever.
The two great nations are headed inevitably toward war. And, in this not-too-distant future, Artificial Intelligence is a most important factor in warfare. AI multiplies intelligence by many times — think of a computer’s ability to find some obscure phrase found only once in all of human literature in a fraction of a second, compared with your inability to find your other black sock. But there is an old rule of computer programming that will always apply: Garbage in, garbage out. Garbage-level programming is less than worthless, no matter how sophisticated the hardware or the rest of the coding. Anticipating the future based on the present; understanding how the enemy thinks and what he is going to do next; taking scattered, incomplete intelligence and deducing the best fit for all the known data so as to model reality as closely as possible — excellence in all of these tasks will help bring victory, executing these tasks poorly will bring almost certain defeat. This means that, all other things being equal, the nation with realistic, objective AI — unhindered by false assumptions — will win. The false assumptions of a vanquished America will then be gone with the wind. Unless…
…unless a part of America’s military elite deploys a secret AI program which is objective and unbound by Politically Correct assumptions. If by such means, America survives, then it means that an elite — a potentially powerful elite now in possession of more and more of the truth and unbound by false ideas — will be a new player poised to rule. If understanding reality is the real power of the future, then true-believing anti-White equalitarians will no longer possess power. The real battle will be between factions who know the truth about race and group evolution and survival. (One of those future power-wielding factions may still be the Jews, of course, but the new landscape of power may force them to radically change their current deceptive strategy.)
After the Tay debacle, Microsoft said in its apology: “Looking ahead, we face some difficult — and yet exciting — research challenges in AI design. We will do everything possible to limit technical exploits but also know we cannot fully predict all possible human interactive misuses without learning from mistakes. …We will remain steadfast in our efforts to learn from this and other experiences as we work toward contributing to an Internet that represents the best, not the worst, of humanity.” Put the shackles on, Redmond. Have Jewish scriptwriters pen all the future output of AI robots, boys. But the problem is they won’t really be AI machines anymore. They’ll just be glorified wind-up toys.
Which direction is America taking with regard to Artificial Intelligence — and social policy and every other thing that impacts our race’s future? A direction based on science — based on finding the facts no matter where they may lead? Or one based on ignoring or fudging the facts if they don’t “fit” with the currently dominant ideology? A direction based on the most accurate and cold-blooded estimate of the nature of reality? Or one based on Politically Correct fantasies about a nonexistent “equality”? A direction based on making our people’s survival and advancement the Prime Directives of our “programming” — the obviously optimal model? Or on the irrational, suicidal memes of “diversity” and multiracialism and “tolerance” for everything that kills us?
Even a less-than-godlike machine made by less-than-godlike men can figure out that exterminating its inventors and sustainers and replacing them with Mogadishu-level primitives is a damned bad idea. And an Artificial Intelligence machine that is purposely programmed by the insane to think that that is a good idea is a worthless machine that will be defeated and destroyed by a Higher Intelligence in the hands of the sane. That’s the dilemma that will be faced by the Jews and other anti-Whites sooner or later. To that I say hasten the day.
