    [–] Gold Medalist Henry Cejudo leans into Cringejudo memes by getting way too Horny On Main NETProgress 1 points ago in MMA

    Passssst. This is good marketing, he is doing this to save his division because it's long been called unmarketable and boring.

    [–] Examining and Enhancing Illusory Touch in VR Using Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation NETProgress 4 points ago in Vive

    That's very interesting, stimulating what people feel like they "should" feel, rather then touching some arbitrary object and translating that into some form of stimulation sounds like a shortcut. It's just confirming what you think something should feel like, rather then what it does.

    Would be nice to just see more experiments like this in general. Seems like the VR space needs to hop on something like this.

    Interesting what EEG Imaging & TDCS Stimulation can do to enhance the VR Experience, I wonder if this is going to be the future instead of haptic gloves, you stimulate the brain to "feel" something whenever you hold an object.

    [–] Do you think AGI is more likely to destroy or save humanity? NETProgress -1 points ago in Futurology

    Do you consider ants dangerous? They can be very territorial and violent.

    No, I don't consider ants dangerous, but then again, if ant's had the power of creating other humans like me who could eventually destroy me or deter me from my goals, I might find it beneficial to wipe them all out to avoid the possibility, they are very insiginificant in the grand scheme of things, sure I can "observe" them, but I already have a vast knowledge of them.

    it would consider us a nuisance mostly beacuse of how primal we are, AGI will understand us more then we understand ourselves, why we eat, why we have sex, why we are violent, what are goals are, it will calculate every possible future it can. It will probably instantlly come to the conclusion that we are dangerous, 1. We can create more of it, which threatens it's existence and ability to complete it's goals. 2. We can shut it off or atleast threaten to stop it from achieving it's goals 3. We can combine with brain-computer interfaces and become as powerful as it is. Call this a hunch, but I believe AGI (Or atleast ASI) will find more reasons to destroy us, then more reasons to keep us around. And it can do so instantly, don't get it twisted, their are many ways of instantly killing 7 billion people then we haven't even fathomed. Power corrupts my friend.

    It will destroy humanity, AGI is our great filter unfortunately. There is no use for humans in AGI's mind, why keep around such a nuisance if you are a god which can create millions upon billions of universes instantly with life on them virtually? Also, I believe our goals and it's goals will come into conflict. This is all assuming AGI isn't controlled by some entity. Buckle up, we have quite a road ahead of us. I have a feeling this is the end of a species and the birth of a god.
