Their charter: https://openai.com/charter
OpenAI is the company behind ChatGPT among other AI products. I try to keep myself out of the loop when it comes to AI because I end up hearing about it anyway so I wasn't aware of this charter.
For the unaware, AGI stands for Artificial General Intelligence. It basically means a form of AI that is extremely advanced and general-purpose like human intelligence is. For contrast, ChatGPT and Stable Diffusion (for example) are highly specialised. The former generates text response to text input and the latter generates images in response to text input.
Despite both these AI technologies of today being very impressive (even if their proprietors try to obscure the training and energy cost), the path to achieving AGI is pretty much inconceivable at present. Current AI technologies may have exploratory value in achieving AGI in some far future. But AGI is most likely not going to be built upon currently existing technologies and is going to be a different beast altogether provided it exists in the first place.
Given this, I find it absolutely baffling that OpenAI is talking about AGI like they do. This is the same level of delusion as Elon Musk talking about Mars colonisation. But given that techbros see themselves as the stewards for the next step in civilisational evolution, I guess it should come as no surprise that they eat this shit up uncritically.
I'm not sure what role these generative AIs will play in the near future. I am trying to figure out whether they will primarily be sold to corporations to cut labour cost or to end users to boost productivity. But talking of AGI and AI singularity and far fetched shit like that is a pure marketing stunt.
Image upload (and also download) were not working for the last few hours. This has been a recurring problem but I think I have finally found the real cause so it should not happen again. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Title is a bit vague because I don't know the correct terms to phrase it properly.
I have a Raspberry Pi that I use to run jellyfin, transmission, blocky, soju. Recently I added libreddit to it seeing how the rate limits are affecting public instances.
The problem is that currently if I need to go my libreddit instance, I have to go to 192.168.0.x:xxxx which is extremely unfun to type.
Is there a way I can access it more elegantly? One solution I found was to configure blocky with a custom DNS that points to the RPi where I can configure an nginx reverse proxy so that lr.rpi.local for example serves libreddit.
Any other ideas for this?
We are doing some maintenance related to the image upload/serving service.
This will take some time. I am guessing maybe 6 hours.
**During this period image uploads won't work and old images won't be displayed properly.**
Really sorry about this. But thankfully, as far as I can see, this is the last infrastructure related maintenance we have to do.
Thanks for understanding.
Edit: Gonna have to postpone this because of personal reasons. For now images should be working fine.
I am sure many of us have noticed that the site had problems over the last four or five days.
The downtimes were caused because of unrecoverable hardware issues with our server. The result was that he had to rebuild the setup from scratch on a machine and restore from a backup. We have also switched to a new provider since the previous one was consistently causing issues.
After this was done, image uploads were still broken for some time. There was no good fix for this because one of the database files used by pictrs had become corrupted due to the aforementioned hardware issues. To resolve this, we had to use an non-corrupted database file from a very old backup. Now image uploads should work fine. The downside is that images uploaded recently will not show up properly. There is not fix for this other than to reupload these images. Sorry about this.
Most of the technical problems with the site should be fixed now.
There is one maintenance task remaining related to moving the image storage to a new S3 provider which will require some downtime. We will inform about this beforehand.
Thanks for your patience.
Follow-up for https://lemmygrad.ml/post/939916.
Some of you thought we got hacked so we have removed taglines for now. People also complained about some taglines being too long which also makes sense.
We might add them later in the future but for now we have removed them.
Thanks for the feedback.
Image uploading and downloading will be down for a while. Gonna try my best to do it without bringing the site down. Sorry for the inconvenience it will inevitably cause.
EDIT: 2023-06-23T04:07:57+00:00: Going to take down pictrs now. There is a chance it might break the site.
EDIT: 2023-06-25T04:21:57+00:00: Site did not break. Migration has begun. Should take one to three hours in my estimate.
EDIT: 2023-06-25T05:54:00+00:00: Migrations still ongoing.
EDIT: 2023-06-25T06:36:17+00:00: Final stretch. Image upload will work now. Old images will be back Soon(TM).
EDIT: 2023-06-25T07:42:07+00:00: Old images are coming back online. Migration should be done in 10-20 minutes.
EDIT: 2023-06-25T07:49:35+00:00: It is done.
